Bluetooth Speakers

Wondering if anyone here has mounted any Bluetooth speakers on their bike? Thinking of getting something like this

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00T3...7060G8YG&psc=1

Or maybe this one since there isn’t any amp to worry about hiding

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07B9...5TLCTWYS&psc=1

I’m sure there’s room on the bars to put the speakers and I could hide the amp in my fork bag to keep all the wires up front except the power wires. The other set has built in amp inside the speaker so I would just need to run the power wires. A coworker has a set of 4 on his bike 2 on the handle bars and 2 just below his seat. I don’t remember which brand he has. Says he can hear it fine while riding. For $65 can’t go wrong anyway. Just curious if anybody here has a set and where you mounted the speakers.

All I can think is "Why would you be that guy that rides around blasting music for everyone?"
Because if you plan to actually hear any of the music while riding, you'll have to play it rather loud.
Would rather just get a intercom system with bluetooth, and listen to music that way. My two cents at least.

A little bit like having an ash tray on a motorbike?

I do not see anywhere in his post whether he asks for an opinion. He asks if anyone has mounted anything similar on their bikes. Everyone has their own taste and can do whatever they want with their bike. It's a Rebel for that reason.

O.P.
I have considered doing something similar to mine. The only problem I can see with the wireless ones is having to charge them. Taking them on and off can be a pain if you ride all the time. Or worrying about these dying mid ride.

My comment was made in jest and not meant to be critical. This is a public forum, however, and any post is likely to attract opinion whether asked for or not.

Chris, apologies if my post offended.

Yeah it is a bit strange, isn't it? Maybe I read his mind?
Or maybe this is a forum, where thoughts and ideas are shared..? Where people might give input on certain things and such.. Hence my two cents on recommending something more convenient, and less noisy for the environment. Nothing more, nothing less

Wow this post took a wrong turn somewhere. Let me start off by saying I’m not offended by anything posted here. Living in NY you learn to have thick skin.

RebelSam I appreciate you sticking your neck out there for me brotha but everyone has a right to their opinion.

Having said that I ordered the Boss system I posted from amazon and it should be here by tomorrow the latest. Still not sure if I’ll even like the looks of it once mounted but if I don’t I’ll put it up on eBay and get some of my money back. I’ll post some pics once mounted so anybody who is interested can see what it looks like.

Oh and it has a volume knob included just in case I pull up next to Lyoko I can turn it down 😛😁 I’m just kidding if I pull up to you I’ll turn it up 🤪😂

Can any of you honestly say that you wouldn't want to be part of this ?

Hehe, not an issue for me at all I'm quite fond of music, but have the decency to play something good at least!
