I don't understand. Your 2010 should have a complete stereo system.

Sorry Mike, what I mean is a complete system with upgraded speakers , amp and sub-woofer. I have seen them for the Harley's, but nothing for the wings.

You CAN get upgraded speakers, but I have not heard of receivers or amps being available. Sierra Electronics probably knows.

If anyone figures it out, it would be a very interesting consideration. I think, for the kind of system you have in mind, the alternator will have to be upgraded - the one in your 2010 might not be sufficient.

The reason is my wife is always saying she can't hear the music that well, so I thought I could " crank it up some".

Cranking-up the tunes is never a bad thing.

If you want more sound in the rear, you will need larger speakers; that means modification of the present speaker's location. It is do-able, but it will always be noticeable.
