Speaker setup

Thinking of adding an audio system to my bike. Any suggestions? I have an iPhone and will use it for the music source.

Before adding my faring I had a Shark stereo system I purchased off ebay. It worked great and it has an Ipod jack. My wife still has one on her 650 and it works great.

Thanks HD I've looked at the Shark stuff online. Wondered if it was good. Hate to buy stuff without really hearing it.

It seems to be holding up good and sounds good. I sold my kit to a guy at work and he put it on his vic and loves it.He uses an I-phone for his tunes.

I bought The Shark Sturgis system.......TOTAL JUNK! Didn't work right out of the box and was all beat up from loose bolts tumbling around the box during shipment. Sounded terrible and the jack to plug in my phone/mp3 player was messed up. Had to wiggle the jack all the time to get both speakers to work. It was the digital version with the push button controls on the speaker itself. I have read many good stories about them, but mine was crap. They refunded with no issues, but I gave up on the idea. Just the wind in my ears.

Hdeater113, could you hook us up with a proper link? I must not be spelling 'shark' correctly Not finding it when i do a search (or maybe i'm just too lazy)
