Surprises keep coming

Post by JohnUSA » Sun Aug 25, 2019 12:37 am



On Fathers Day I got this new-to-me GW trike. I also have a two wheel Wing. Whenever I rode solo, I listened to music with earbuds.

On the trike, I've been turning on the speakers when my wife and I ride. However, there are no rear speakers.

Several weeks ago, I came across some speakers in a box that I hadn't seen in years. I mean, maybe ten-fifteen years. Nice little Kenwood PP speakers. ( I know...I've got too much crap if I haven't seen these in years)

Today I decide to dig into the rear speaker pods, and went and got the Kenwoods out of the box.

Darned if they didn't fit into the rear speaker boxes smooth as butter. Totally stoked, perfect fit!

I ordered up the fader switch this evening...can't wait to get it in, see how these KW sound.

Did you luck out on that! Don't feel bad about keeping stuff, I have parts from bikes I haven't had in years and I'm all the time going to see if I have something I can re-purpose.

When I go my trike the rear speakers weren't working either. I tracked it down to cut wires, repaired them and now have rear speakers. The trunk lite was the same way cut wires. Not sure what the PO was trying to do by cutting all these wires.

Let us know how it goes after you get your fader.

That's not stuff, that's inventory (or so I tell my wife..).

I got the rear speaker harness in the mail, and took a picture while I had things opened up.


Got this fader coming. As a bonus, someone added a couple accessory switches:

All installed and hooked up..sounds great. They are 4 ohms, by the way. Stock was 3 ohms, so a fairly decent substitute.
