Default '14 Tri Glide Advice and Recommendations

I'm toying with the idea of upgrading the audio on my '14 Tri Glide, same setup as an Ultra Classic, 6.5" HU with front and back speakers.

Over the years I have compiled, installed and setup many auto, truck and marine audio systems but have generally left my bikes stock.

Not looking to enter any sound contest or show, just looking for a little more volume and clearer sound when out on the road.

So far I'm planning on running the Kappa 62.11i's in the front and Polk MM652's in the tour pack pods.

For amp I'm thinking about a MB Quart MA1-440.4 compact marine amp.

I have used this amp with very good success on several boat installations where it's pushing 4 Rockville 6.5 speakers.

Anyone have thoughts on my amp selection or a better idea?

Also, what else do I need for the installation? Line levelers, flash, spacers??? I have a fully equipped shop and performing any mod is no problem at all.

I'm used to dealing with head units that already have line level outputs. This Harley HU seems like a totally different monster than what I normally deal with.

Thanks In Advance!

BT line levelers, if you order the correct ones, will have the molex connectors to plug right into the front speaker outputs, then rca to amp,,,,,for the rear there are a few options,,,you can find the rear speaker feed wires in the factory harness and tap them to a generic BT line leveler, or I believe there is a breakout harness of some sort so that you can get the feed without tapping the harness,,,then its line unit to rca to amp.

And to expand a little more on the above post. If you don't care about having fade control, you can just use 1 line leveler and a 'y' splitter RCA to get the front and rear channels.
