Just installed Shark 250 Watt Stereo

Like many of us, I like to listen to some tunes now and then when I ride. Nothing better than some bangin' bass while plowing some miles. And like a lot of us, I used my mp3 player and ear buds...which frankly hurt like a mutha. So I did some research. I checked various places which provided user feedback and for the price, I found that the Shark 250 Watt system was getting great reviews. Nice Speaker (waterproof) and small sized amp with FM radio. The Amp has a clock which I don't use, but has treble and bass controls as well as tone controls for AUX...which for me is my mp3 players. The speaker brackets mount onto the mirror perchs and you can point them at YOU or anyone else. After instaling everything ( you have to make you own bracket for the amp if you want it close at hand) I took my bike for a little cruise. Even at highway speed and my full face helmet shut tight, I could easilty hear Motly Crue's Girls, Girls, Girls.

Cost...$130...

Got it from Gooddeals18.com

How does the system sound? I'm seriously looking at the same or similar system with the upgraded speakers like you have. Is there much base sound from the speakers? What do you like or dislike about the system?

Thanks

Not a lot of bass, but it does come with an eq that helps. I use mine all the time....I like riding with a few tunes going...

I think so...I have been rained on pretty badly and it still works. The speakers are I know that... I have had the unit on now for about 5 months and I have no complaints...the FM radio side is a little weak, but I use my MP# player and it is killer. Loud enough I can hear it with my full face helmet on, going down the superslab.
