The owner of Ocala Car Audio owned the heavily customized 2010 Harley-Davidson Street Glide you see here. Over five years, the bike served as the test-bed for different motorcycle audio speakers, amplifiers and source unit solutions. Of course, the motorcycle also spent more than its fair share of time on the road, so every component had exposure to the same real-world conditions that our clients’ bikes experience every day.
Custom Paint and Engine Work
It’s clear to see that his bike is anything but stock. The engine has been upgraded to a full Stage IV with new pistons, cams, a larger throttle body and much more. It makes over 110 horsepower and has more than adequate torque to get the bike up to speed quickly. The headlight was upgraded with a Heise BC-703S that features dedicated low- and high-beam projectors. A set of Heise HE-WL2 lights on the lower engine guard add additional light output to reveal objects at the side of the road.
The bike and several upgraded accessories, including 2014+ Harley stretched bags, Saddle Tramp BC-HD69-14 lid covers, a 95-HDIF-NP inner fairing replacement and a set of BC-HDLFSP-1 lower speaker fairing assemblies, were painted by Claudio and his team at Paint Worx in Ocala.
Harley-Davidson Street Glide Stereo System Upgrade
The audio system on the bike has changed many times over the years. The final system you see here is based around a Sony XAV-AX7000 multimedia receiver that is mounted in the upgraded inner fairing we mentioned earlier. The deck feeds a Rockford Fosgate DSR1 digital signal processor, which was used to fine-tune the audio signals going to a four-channel Rockford Fosgate TM400X4ad amplifier that is installed in the front fairing. The amp’s front channels drive a set of Rockford TMS65 coaxial speakers in the upper fairing and a set of Diamond Audio MP654 in the lower fairing enclosures. A set of Rockford TMS69 speakers are mounted in the lids on the saddlebag.
The team at Ocala Car Audio emphasized that having two sets of speakers on the front of the bike was definitely the preferred way to create an immersive listening experience.
