Extreme Audio in Mechanicsville and Midlothian has some great news: Rockford Fosgate has introduced the TMS69BL14 and TMS69BL9813 Power Series Rear Audio upgrade kits for 1998 and newer Harley-Davidson motorcycles. These factory lid speaker upgrade kits are designed to work with existing Rockford front speaker and amplifier upgrade solutions like the HD14-TKIT. Let’s look at what these speaker upgrade kits include.
Premium Two-way 6×9 Speakers
Both speaker upgrade kits include a set of the new Rockford TMS69 6×9-inch full-range bag lid speakers. The speakers are based on a glass fiber-reinforced polymer plastic frame and feature a carbon fiber-strengthened woofer cone. A second Santoprene front spider seals the motor assembly to prevent water ingress. The woofer is powered by a pair of high-efficiency neodymium magnets and a large, 35 mm voice coil. The large voice coil allows these speakers to handle 100 watts of continuous power for great sound.
An integrated, low-profile 25 mm proprietary film dome tweeter features waveguides to direct energy toward the rider, rather than off to the sides.
The kits meet Rockford’s Element Ready requirements for resistance to damage from dust, water, UV exposure, corrosion and vibration.
The TMS69BL14 kit includes a pair of speakers, new grilles, mounting adapters and wire harnesses. The kit works with 2014 and newer Harley cruisers. Rockford mentions that the kits are not compatible with Tour-Pak speakers, and may not work on CVO and Screaming Eagle bikes.
The TMS69BL9813 kit provides a solution to upgrade bag lid speakers on 1998 through 2013 model year cruisers. As with the 2014 and newer kits, the stock bag lids will have to be cut to house the new speakers. Rockford generously includes a three-dimensional cutting template to ensure a perfect fit every time. Modifying the stock covers saves clients time and expense in finding and painting new covers.
