Hello sharkdc0529,

I'm not familar with the HK Business head unit, and could not find such in an online search. I thought it might be "Harman-Kardon" but struck out again. Anyway, most stock speakers will sound lousy with an aftermarket head unit. Take a look at the typical factory speaker (top photo) and an Infinity aftermarket speaker (bottom photo) on this page. There's a world of difference in the materials and construction.

In addition to Infinity, I recommend Alpine, Kicker, and Rockford-Fosgate. You'll also find that Kenwood, Pioneer, and Sony make some excellent sounding speakers at very reasonable prices.

You'll need to know the size of the stock speakers and replace them with the same size. Also, be aware that most aftermarket speakers have larger baskets and magnets and will therefore have more "depth". Make sure you have ones that fit or that you have an appropriate adapter.

Hope this helps.

Can you replace a stock amp with a after market amp without rewiring speaker 2001 sport track


It depends on whether you have the standard audio system or a premium sound system. The standard system has no factory amplifier, the premium system has a factory amp and some other gimmicks that are hard to interface with. A proper OEM amplifier upgrade will require changing the factory speakers with stronger replacements, as well as adapting the factory head unit output to a signal your new amplifier will like. More often than not, it is more economical and better sounding to just change the factory speakers and run the replacements off your factory system. To drastically improve the sound system, it is more effective to just change everything.

Want 2 remove stock speakers n install after market. Need 2 know how 2 remove stock speakers corectly


There are several sites that offer step by step procedures to remove stock speakers, for a small fee. Most replacements involve removing the door panel. I strongly recommend coughing up the minimal cost for these directions. You can replace your speakers, and if you sell your car, you can replace the stock speakers back where they go.

I have a 2000 HD Roadking with a stock exhaust. How can I make the stock exhaust louder


The age-old Harley stigma:Louder is better.
We all love the Harley sound but to get loud you may sacrifice performance. There are numerous after-market pipes that will improve performance and change sound but you cannot really do both. Drag pipes are the loudest but would be lousy looking on your Roadking and you lose mid-range response. Pipes have to be tuned and it is an exacting science.
Best bet is to go to J&P Cycles website and look at all the pipes. Call their tech support and ask what they recommend.
Here is an excellent web site

Left rear windshield speaker blew out in 1998 lincoln town car...play music fine, but when i turn on bass, HUGE thumping sound, i think its ripped. How can i go about replacing it myself? i believe that...


Hello nathan_ebay9,

Replacing speakers is definitely one of the easy DIY jobs in car audio. And rear deck speakers are the easiest of all. You can usually access them directly from the trunk and it's simply unhook the wires, remove the speakers, mount the new ones, and reattach the wires. Finished!

It's best to replace both in a paired set. The sound from different types of speakers will be different and they're usually sold as a pair anyway.

I'd recommend the Jensen's shown here. They will outperform most stock speakers and sound better too.

Hope this helps.
