Hi every one I just purchase another Interstate GL1200 with 40,000 mile on it which is in good condition over all and happy with the purchase.I need to listen gospel music when I travel and need some one to instruct me with the wireing A - Z.The bike has no audio system what so ever just empty pocket covered with a plastic with no speaker.I do have American Wifi 720 car Cd player and I need to know what appropriate size of speaker (Watt) I need to purchase too.
Thank you and God bless!

Any name brand speaker capable of fitting in the factory slot will suffice. I'm not sure of the actual size required. I just bought a 1987 gl1200i from my neighbor for 1500. It's sit for 10 years so I took it to the shop first thing. I Will follow up as soon as I know more. I'm going to go with a sony stereo with Bluetooth on mine. I'll also be replacing the speakers with, hopefully, Sony brand.

Afterthought,
As a rule of thumb, take the wattage of the stereo system and divide that by four. That's how many watts it puts out to both speakers.
