2014 & Up 5x7 To 6x9 Adapter Kit
PLEASE NOTE: THIS KIT "WILL NOT WORK" WITH CVO ELECTRONIC LID LOCK MECHANISMS AND WILL REQUIRE THE ADDITION OF AN OPTIONAL CVO LID LOCK ADAPTER. IN STOCK SOON!
Tape off the entire painted surface of your speaker lids to protect them while you complete the necessary work. Remove all lid hardware and latching mechanism taking special attention to how it will reassemble.
Cut the plastic basket off of the under side of the lid. You want to have the flattest mounting surface for the adapter to bolt up to. DO NOT grind off the four mounting points for the factory speaker grill. Be very careful of the painted surface of the lid. It is easy to damage.
Use small cutters to remove the last of the basket where a grinder will not fit.
Enlarge the factory 5x7 speaker mounting holes with a 17/64" drill bit. Insert the supplied aluminum nutserts from the top side of the lid and squeeze each with a proper nutset tool. Be very careful do NOT over squeeze! These are not pop rivets.
Now that the threaded inserts are in place, test fit the adapter. Notice that one of the mounting ears has a flat spot. This is the rear outside mounting point. This is opposite of the latch side of the lid. The speaker adapter will fit over the protruding nutserts and lock into position.
Remove the speaker adapter and apply gasket material "NOT INCLUDED" to the side that mates up with the bottom of the lid. Also gasket the side that mates up with the speaker.
Note: most 6x9 speakers have an integrated plastic spacer ring, or include one in the box so that the speaker can be rear mounted and the cone surround will not hit the mounting surface. If your speaker does not have a spacer ring, spacer rings can be purchased we offer them on 3/8 MOST COMMON SKU: 183815166536 & 1/2 SKU: 183865361516
Screw the factory Harley grills in place before bolting the speaker adapter to the lid. Then bolt the adapter in place using the supplied Allen bolts. Actual Allen bolts in your kit are black as shown in pictures.
Screw your speaker in place using the supplied 1" long #8 stainless screws. If your speaker requires screws of a different length, be sure to use #8 stainless screws that are long enough to run through the entire thickness of the adapter for maximum strength.
YOU'RE DONE! HAPPY LISTENING!
