Motorcycle audio has been a specialty here at Westminster Speed and Sound for more than two decades. Our employees are riders themselves, and we have a dedicated Harley-Davidson demo bike here in the showroom so you can see and hear what we can do for you. Our extensive hands-on experience gives us a unique perspective when choosing equipment, designing systems and performing installations.
Start with an Audio Specialist
All too often, we meet someone frowning at our door as they explain that they tried using a “buddy” or a motorcycle repair facility that said, “Sure, we can install an audio system on your bike.” Many times, the quality of the equipment chosen and the potentially unreliable installation work leave them wondering why they had spent money in the first place. The good news is, it doesn’t have to be this way. Our technicians are audio specialists. If you want more power from the engine, we aren’t your guys. If you want new chrome accessories, we don’t offer them. But if you want a motorcycle audio system that sounds great, one that can be heard at speed and will be reliable for years to come, we are here for you.
Motorcycle Source Units and Options for Playing Your Music
If you own a 2014 or newer Harley-Davidson, we can re-flash your existing stereo system so it will work great as the foundation for a complete audio upgrade. If you’d like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto on your new Harley, we can do that as well. These smartphone technologies make it amazingly easy to pick the music you want to hear or get detailed turn-by-turn navigation directions to your destination. Maybe you have a 2013 or older Harley and would like a radio with Bluetooth for music streaming or control over music on a thumb drive. We’ve got Rockford Fosgate and Aquatic AV source units designed specifically for those applications. Would you like your older bike to have a touchscreen radio like the newer models? We do that as well. And what if your bike has no fairing, but you want music? We can create a system that streams the music wirelessly from your phone to the amplifier, so you’ll never be without your favorite tunes.
Amplifiers Let You Crank the Volume
Nowadays, lots of companies say they have “motorcycle amplifiers” or models that work well on a bike. The reality is that most of them aren’t all they’re cracked up to be. Our team has taken our 49 years of mobile audio experience and scrutinized every product we sell. What that means to you is that our selection of amplifiers will work with your stock charging system, handle the abuse of life on a bike and give you years of quality sound. From simple two-channel amplifiers to multichannel powerhouses, we have solutions from ARC Audio and Rockford Fosgate – two of the best-known motorcycle audio upgrade companies in the industry.
Speakers Make Your Music Come Alive
The final step in upgrading the audio system on your bike is to choose the right speakers, then have us install them properly. For some folks, having us install upgraded front fairing speakers from a company like ARC Audio may deliver all the sound they need. If you want even more sound, we have a variety of options to add additional speakers. We can often add a set of lower speakers by the radiator and engine guard. If you have a Tour-Pak, you already have great rear speaker locations that are perfect candidates for an upgrade.
Many of our clients opt to have us add a set of speakers in the bag lids, and if that is you, we have a neat solution that many people like. Rockford Fosgate offers a kit that allows you to keep your stock bag lids and add a set of 6-by-9-inch speakers. The result looks like Harley put them there, and you don’t need to do any paintwork at all. Maybe you want rear speakers but don’t want the “look” of them in the bag lids. No worries. We can install speakers inside your bags that point them in toward the rear wheel. We have engineered a unique solution that keeps dirt and moisture out while letting them sound great. You can have great sound that’s completely stealth. For the ultimate in speaker upgrades, we have solutions that allow us to add a set of JL Audio marine speakers in their 7.7-inch or massive 8.8-inch sizes. The speakers can go in either the bag lids or a new, compact Tour-Pak.
We even offer compact motorcycle-specific digital signal processors that allow us to fine-tune the output of the amplifiers and speakers you’ve chosen for unbelievably realistic sound.
Add Lighting To Finish It Off
Our experience as mobile audio specialists has given us expertise with motorcycle electrical systems. If you would like to upgrade your headlight or add additional auxiliary fog or driving lights for better performance, our LED solutions are a great choice. Maybe you would like to add accent lighting under the gas tank, fenders or engine to make your bike stand out at night. We can do that as well.
