WARNING
Rider and passenger safety depend upon the correct installation of this kit. Use the appropriate service manual procedures. If the procedure is not within your capabilities or you do not have the correct tools, have a Harley-Davidson dealer perform the installation. Improper installation of this kit could result in death or serious injury. (00333b)
NOTE
This instruction sheet references service manual information. A service manual for this year/model motorcycle is required for this installation. One is available from a Harley-Davidson dealer.
Electrical Overload
WARNING
When installing any electrical accessory, be certain not to exceed the maximum amperage rating of the fuse or circuit breaker protecting the affected circuit being modified. Exceeding the maximum amperage can lead to electrical failures, which could result in death or serious injury. (00310a)
NOTICE
It is possible to overload your vehicle's charging system by adding too many electrical accessories. If the combined electrical accessories operating at any one time consume more electrical current than the vehicle's charging system can produce, the electrical consumption can discharge the battery and cause damage to the vehicle's electrical system. See an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer for advice about the amount of current consumed by additional electrical accessories or for necessary wiring changes. (00211c)
The purchase of this kit entitles you to a specially developed sound equalization software that is used with the Advanced Audio System. This unique equalization was designed to optimize the performance and sound response of the BOOM! Audio fairing lower speakers. If this kit is not installed by a Harley-Davidson dealer, this special equalization software is available without charge from any dealer through Digital Technician II. Dealer labor rates may apply for the upgrade procedure.
This amplifier requires up to 8 amps more current from the electrical system.

19.
See Figure 12. Attach the speaker wire connectors inside the speaker enclosure to the spade terminals on the back of the new woofer. Different size spade contacts prevent improper assembly.

Connect the two-way audio connector of the amplifier harness to the mid-range and tweeter connector (D).
21.
Rotate the speaker assembly (1) so the tweeter (C) is 45 degrees outboard from the top.
22.
Install the speaker assembly onto the speaker enclosure with the four screws (5) from the kit.
a.
Start screws carefully to avoid pushing the captive nuts through the mounting holes.
b.
Use a cross-wise pattern to tighten all four screws to 1.13 N·m (10 in-lbs).
23.
Repeat steps 19-22 for the remaining speaker enclosure.
WARNING
Be sure that steering is smooth and free without interference. Interference with steering could result in loss of vehicle control and death or serious injury. (00371a)
1.
Make sure that wires, harnesses or lines do not pull tight when handlebars are turned fully to left or right fork stops.
2.
Verify that steering is smooth and clear from stop to stop.
COMPLETION
NOTE
To prevent possible damage to the audio system, verify that the ignition and audio system are OFF before installing the main fuse.
