Harley-Davidson cooperates with Rockford Fosgate on audio systems

NEU-INESBURG/VIENNA (May 25, 2021) - The Americans have always had a lot going on when it comes to music: They not only gave the world rock 'n' roll, but also invented all kinds of equipment with which to reproduce it in the highest quality leaves.

While some US automobiles could already be ordered with a radio in the Charleston era, it took until the beginning of the 1980s for two-wheelers. Harley-Davidson was one of the first providers to offer such a mobile pick-me-up as an option. Six years later - in 1986 - the radio became standard in the Electra Glide Classic models.

Today, all touring models with batwing or sharknose trim are equipped with a radio - or more precisely, with a complex Boom! Box infotainment system capable of DAB reception with a color touchscreen, navigation system, hands-free system, Bluetooth for the cell phone and a number of other features .

In 2021, the Motor Company is even going one step further. Particularly advanced and powerful audio parts are available under the Harley-Davidson Audio powered by Rockford Fosgate Speakers and amplifiers come from the renowned US car audio provider Rockford Fosgate , were specially designed for the demanding use of Harley-Davidson motorcycles and offer outstanding sound.

The new, very compact amplifier with four times 100 watts per channel (RMS) at 2 ohms (RRP 648 euros (additional installation kit required)) supplies four speaker systems from a side case and effortlessly achieves high volume levels when required.

Its high-tech electronic systems such as BME (Bass Management Enhancement) and M-DEQ (Motorcycle Dynamic EQ) ensure automatic sound control with powerful bass and brilliant highs in every driving situation, regardless of driving speed, wind, engine and rolling noise.

Rockford Fosgate speaker systems with robust injection-molded baskets for the woofers and an elaborately constructed crossover ensure authentic and distortion-free conversion into sound waves (RRP from 298 euros (additional installation kit required)).

They are available as a two-way and three-way system and, due to their dimensions, perfectly replace the existing speakers, so that the entire system can be integrated into the motorcycle without any visual changes. If desired, two amplifiers and up to eight speaker systems can even be used.

The components from Harley-Davidson Audio powered by Rockford Fosgate are as standard on the CVO Street Glide and the CVO Road Glide in 2021 and can be retrofitted on numerous touring models with the Boom! Box infotainment system from 2014.

  1. Hello... Volker... what do these things do in the rain (those boom-rock-things sound systems that HD installs)? They certainly run full up here sometimes...or don't they?

    1. Hello Andreas,
      I think that when it rains it will look like you are pouring water onto a drum and continuing to pound on it.
      🙂 I haven't seen the new speakers yet, but I'm confident that they'll do their job well even in bad weather. The previous CVO models actually worked very well, although they had changed something in the meantime, but the 2015/16 models in particular had a lot of bang. You don't necessarily have to make it loud, you get a rich sound at low volume, which is probably the case with the Rockford Fosgate systems. But unlike the previous versions, I haven't tried it yet.

      1. Thanks for that, Volker. Kind regards...see you soon...maybe at Tass Kaff and 'n Schnack am See.
