My 1995 PC 800 came without speakers.

does anyone know which replaceent speakers, size, model, etc. I need for putting two speakers in their sections on each side of the front cover? right now I don't have any speakers there, it is what came with the bike originally.

thanks!

Don't know the exact model, but go to a well stocked marine supply store. They will have an extensive line of stereo's, electronics and speakers. You want marine speakers as they are waterproof and won't be damaged if you're caught in a storm.

Well, short story, at west marine nothing begins less than 299.00. Ebay? a nice unit including marine remote radio for 89.00. And since I only need the speakers, only 35.00 compare to over 100 west marine, for a 150 watss speaker that price is excellent.

Pioneer makes a 3-1/2" coaxial speaker with poly cones. Excellent speaker for less than $50.

Thanks for the pioneer tip. here they are

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Pioneer-3-1-2-2 ... 0163902800

and the reviews are terric, 48.00 or so free shippinig. BUT NOT WATERPROOF. Also, my bike has no "grill" cover for the speakers, it rather has a plastic cover which I need to cut to size.

West Marine really has what I want, also a pioneer, I bought it for my Newport 27' years ago, but it is so expensive close to 350.00 for the radio and speakers. It does sound like an orchestra though.

I'm going to contact Pioneer directly and ask for which model is waterproof and modestly priced. Thanks for the tip, I should had thought about the company but its been now 15 years since I sold my sailboat. due to sickness now I'm reduced to my cruiser bike only. At least :)!

You can make a grill from perforated aluminum sheet. Easy to cut with shears. Cut out the solid plastic center from the grill area, use the cutout piece for a pattern for the aluminum. It's easy to form over the edge of the pattern piece, then bond in place in the dash cutout.
