bluetooth speakers

Post by shawnee1952 » Thu Nov 23, 2017 9:21 am



i am thinking about placing bluetooth speakers on my 87 Interstate since my radio got pressure washed by a helpful grandchild. Radio reception here is spotty at best anyway. Any ideas on a good brand ?

I don’t think you will find any that will go loud enough for a bike. My experience with the portable Bluetooth speakers is that they work great for small rooms or even in the garden, but for a bike you are going to want a set that have their own batteries, so you will need to find a way to recharge/power them whilst riding, but all the self powered ones I have seen have been about 5 watts maximum power and you need a lot more than that to hear them at 70 mph!! I hope you find something that works for you, but I have had no success so far.
