The owner of this amazing and unique 2010 Honda Goldwing trike contacted Certified Autosound and Security in Abbotsford to discuss an audio and lighting system upgrade. Goldwing motorcycles, as powerful and comfortable as they are, were never known for their sound systems. The client wanted something that sounded better and played louder. At the same time, he wanted upgraded lighting to help him see at night and some accent lighting to give the trike a unique look when parked.
Goldwing Audio System Enhancements
We started the project by removing the factory speakers from the front fairing and rear of the trike to make way for two sets of Blam 165 RC coaxial speakers. These new speakers are part of the Relax Series from Blam and feature a 6.5-inch coaxial design that uses a soft-dome tweeter for smooth delivery of high-frequency information and a coated cellulose pulp woofer for a rich and warm midrange and mid-bass performance.
We combined the new speakers with a JL Audio M400/4 marine-grade four-channel amplifier. The amp provides up to 75 watts of power to each speaker to reproduce music with clarity and detail, even at elevated listening levels.
Custom Motorcycle Lighting Upgrades
Next on the work order was the task of installing a set of Heise LED lights on the left and right engine guard brackets. The compact driving lights feature a narrow 25-degree spot lighting pattern and serve as an upgraded high-beam for long-distance illumination.
The last step was to integrate an eight-channel Heise RGB (red, green and blue) rock light kit. We mounted the multi-color light pods under the trike and above the front wheel while ensuring all the wiring was concealed and secured properly. Each pod contains three bright LEDs. The owner can use the Heise RGB app with his smartphone to adjust the color of the lights to suit his mood or match the color of his trike.
Honda Goldwing Trike Upgrade Project
After a few days of work, we had the audio system dialed in and all the lighting installed and aimed. The client returned to Certified Autosound and Security in Abbotsford, eager to hear the new audio system and check out the lighting. When he arrived, he hopped on the trike and cranked up some of his favourite music. He was thrilled with the improvement in sound quality and output. The lighting looked exactly the way he wanted!
