Thanks guys I am very happy indeed with the way it is setup, an excellent buy. The remote control being place where it is was just copied on the way that Phil (typan) did it, that then lead on to the idea for the MP3 player mounting bracket.
As always on this site, fantastic ideas often come up and others help you see the wood in the trees.

I must admit, I do like the idea of the Amp unit concealed (and may yet change mine).

I put mine accessible (centre bar mounted) for 2 reasons...

1. I don't think you can change radio stations from the remote (correct me if I'm wrong)

2. The remote did not look as "water resistant" as the Amp unit (In case there was a downpour mid ride)

Decisions decisions :what1:

PS- Did my video link work after the pics??

Sorry Paul just scrolled back and watched your video, looking good.
Yes you are right that you can't change the stations from the remote but I will probably only ever use the mp3 player so that is not a concern for me.
On that note, I have have just been chatting to Doc Cox and he said not to bother fitting an aerial as I had originally planned as it will be a waist of cash. Much better to extend the aerial wire and just run it around the bike, even coiling it in areas to gain length, as the signal will be much better improved through length of aerial than by installing a shop bought one.
As for the remote control, I kind of took the attitude that if it was made for external use, it should be fine. However you have me concerned now so I will open it up at the weekend and fill it with Vaseline.

Thanks Dave. I was looking at aerials so glad I've just read this and not wasted my money.

I'm busy making a cap/cover for the amp unit just for added protection, when parked up etc.

Watch what you're doing with the Vaseline- I don't want you cursing me, if you knack it!

Vaseline is an old trick used by automotive mechanics & electricians. There is nothing better on the market at any price for protecting electrics. Any time I have access to or connect any electrical components together I coat it in a layer of Vaseline. It fully waterproofs and stops corrosion!

I wanted to add something to this conversation, and for anyone interested in pictures, just PM me and let me know!

I recently bought a used pair of the PLMCA10s to put on my Marauder (for $30), and with a handlebar mounted tach, there isn't any room to mount them! Well, in order to get them on, I ended up mounting them to the turn signal stems! I wasn't sure how they would look or act, but after adjusting them so they wouldn't hit the tank when I turned, they look pretty awesome. The other issue I ran into with these is that Pyle Audio seems to think that everyone rides a Harley, so the mounting brackets were too damn big. This was an even easier fix. I went to the hardware store, picked up some plumbing wall brackets, shined them up a little and lined the inside with rubber from an old inner tube. 76 cents was all it cost me! So for $30.76 I got a hell of a speaker system, and I would recommend these to anyone looking for something flashy, but reasonably priced!

Cool vid Dave.... great little solution to holding the MP3 player.

I've been racking my brains for some way of holding my phone, so you may just have cracked it.

(seriously, NOT so I can text or talk while riding Pyle PLMCA10 Motorcycle Speaker & Amplifier System - Page 2 2343124779 but just as a means of holding it if I wanted to charge it from the handlebar mounted USB/ciggie lighter while on the move.)

The fact so much of the mp3 is visible should make it easy to remember to grab when you park up too Wink

Yeah it works really well, I have cut the front of the mount so that I can access the controls better. With me I just hate paying for stuff when there is an easy home made solution available.

Very funny, Mal, but I've watched the Two Ronnies "Fork Handles" skit, so I can decipher Brit fairly well! I was going to mention that the speakers are a little off-kilter, but I didn't want to offend any Scottish sensibilities by using the words off and Kilt in one sentence!

After a few test runs, I think I need to move the amp. I can tell when the bike is in gear, so I don't need the N. light, but I keep leaving my blinker on cause I can't see the indicator light!

Got my amp in same place as yours, and going to move mine as well.
Just ordered tool roll to put it in. Moving mine cos I need some space for sat nav I want. Will operate amp from remote like others have done, and will sort a little weather proof cover for it.

You shouldn’t have to splice anything. The wiring is dead easy...
In short, there is a cable that goes from the main unit direct to the battery. Other cables are L & R speakers, Aux cable for ipod, and cable for remote button pad.
After various trials, I have settled for the main unit in the side tool compartment (The unit does not have to be accessed if you have one pre set radio station).
I have also mounted the remote on the bars with the 2 speakers.
There is a simple wiring diagram included in the package, but believe me, you shouldn’t need it.

No, there is an on/off switch on the remote pad and the main unit (called "Mode" button), whichever option you choose to go for.
A red L.E.D light indicates power on, on both options. So if the unit is off, no power should be drawn.

You could always wire it to the aux plug in the headlight bucket, then it's only live when the ignition is on? No good if you want music on while your parked though.

That’s a good point. (I wouldn’t of known how to do that).
It did cross my mind if some nosy bugger wanted to play with the remote and turn the tunes on, it could drain the battery. I will probably make a little cap/water cover for the remote when parked.
Something else to do!

I have my Kuryexpensive speakers hooked direct to the battery because I listen to my Sat Radio and Ipod a lot while I am working. They have their own on/off switch and a little green light thats on when they are on. I have run my Bat. down a couple of times from leaving them on. But once I finally pulled my head out of my ass it hasn't been a problem. Pyle PLMCA10 Motorcycle Speaker & Amplifier System - Page 2 2740622253

The auxiliary power supply inside the headlight bucket and is rated at 10amps, so more than enough power. Most of us simply use 2 spade connectors to gain access to the power supply. O/B = Live / B/W = Earth. The connector is switched live, so only works when the ignition is on.

Well my Amp doesn't work. Typical.

third time ordering speakers and looks like they are going back.

Tried the aux headlight. Nothing no power light

I have the connections direct to the battery. Nothing no power light.

Unless there is an issue with the amp, the only other real way is if the live and earth were connected the wrong way around.

radio just needs a longer antena wire but if your music is not coming through very good untill you turn it up then I would send it back and get a replacement.
Where you have it mounted could make a difference though as you may be getting interferance.

I'm back. My bike is in the shop, so it's been pretty depressing coming onto the forums.

This system is great, as long as you avoid rain. The biggest issue I've run into is the volume. It would be better suited on a quieter bike than mine, but tunes is tunes. To add onto what everyone is talking about, remember, the unit does NOT stop draining battery unless you disconnect the amp from the power source (i.e. Pulling the power cord from the back of the amp). There is always going to be a little trickle being pulled to maintain the time and the pre-set radio station. The trickle is minimal, as long as your battery is up for it.

The best thing to do with power is to have it run on a switched earth such as the spare port in the headlight bucket

Hey guys need a little help installing mine on the Tiger. I have an auxiliary power point at the front of the tank which I'd like to power the amp from as its switched live. However this is not a standard cigarette lighter style socket its like a mini version I have never seen before. Pyle PLMCA10 Motorcycle Speaker & Amplifier System - Page 2 Img-2010
Could anybody give me some advice on what adapter I would need for this socket in order to connect the spades from the amp power cable?
