Stereo and maybe Amp, enough power?
I was wanting to do a fairing with a stereo and some 6x9's. I was curious if anyone has had any power issues from the stock power system in their v-star? (2003 1100 Silverado )
and if anyone has a stereo, how does your deck, assuming its probably a 50wx4 or similar, perfrom as far as sound quality at highway speeds? i know there isnt going to be much bass, but maybe some punch?
and lastly, has anyone installed a stereo in a fairing, and added an amp?
my biggest concern is that the 1100's stator/rectifier put out enough power to handle all of that? i hear that it doesn't, but i know lots of people have fairings with stereos, and ive even seen some with amps. i have LED's for bulbs on my headlight and passing lamps, so im saving a few watts there...
im trying to avoid having to spend an extra $300 to get a after markets Stator and Rectifier. thats a pretty penny to do that. i can get a fairing and stereo for $600... adding $300 more for a new stator/rectifier kinda sucks...
