Can you hear them down there? Seems like the sound would be below you. The Speakers look like Hog Tunes.

I definitely could hear them better on the handlebars, I can hear them fine where they are at though. I don't have enough real estate on my handlebars for these 4" speakers. I should have done the 2" speakers in retrospect. I hear them clearly at 60-65 but I have not been on the highway with them yet. I try to stay off the Eway anyway. I generally cruise backroads to get where I am going when on the bike.

I could just switch out my bars and get a little wider set and it would work out well, but with a baby arriving in June I have been cut off on Jeep and motorcycle funds for this year.

As far as the translucent thing, no idea what it is as it does not light up.

I am not a Eway rider either unless no other choice is there.

I wrecked a Spree riding a wheelie last year, I never expected it to come up that high and then went over backward I need a new turn signal assembly now.
