My wife has no issues with them installed.
Dont think he was talking comfort wise, although should be considered, but how well do you,or you passenger hear them. Are they worth the investment if you ride with a corn fed passenger most of the time?My wife has no issues with them installed.
I have a 2013 Voyager 1700 and I'm considering having the dealer install Kawasaki OEM rear speakers while the bike's in the shop for some other work. But I have a question.
Whenever I see pictures of them installed, their location looks like if you had a passenger who was a little "thick in the rear section", their hips and butt would be blocking the speakers. It looks like they would have their hips and butt pressed right up against them. And I wonder how much benefit they'd provide in that situation where they would seem to be blocked.
Does anyone have these installed and ride with a passenger who might be a little "full figured"?
I really appreciate your input.
My wife is full figured and I can still hear the speakers when she's on the back.Thanks all for the replies. The dealer doesn't have a Voyager in stock right now, much less one with rear speakers installed. But I think I'm just going to take the chance. I had rear speakers that came standard on my '94 Voyager XII and my passenger at the time appreciated them.
Now if the new Voyager only came with the passenger remote control for the sound system that was standard on Voyagers 20 years ago...
AZ, are these the speakers that you bought? I was about to place an order with them for a 2013 Vulcan Voyager 1700 when this message appeared: "We're sorry, this product does not fit the bike you selected.", although the stock photo shown looks like they would work.I would shop the price, try goggling "Kawasaki Voyager rear speakers" seen as much as $100.00 difference for the same exact set. Try Motosport.com $276 with free shipping, most are at $380.
I put them on my 2012 and Love them, much improved sound when solo and the wife appreciates them, before she had trouble hearing the tunes at speed but now no problem, and she says they Vibrate her thighs, it's all good, and I think it gives it a more finished look, kinda open without them. Def worth the investment,
