Axxess AX-DSP Harnesses for Harley-Davidson
At the 2017 SEMA Show, Axxess introduced their first digital signal processor with a built-in interface and patented technology, the AX-DSP. Since its introduction, Axxess has released vehicle-specific plug-n-play harnesses and complete kits for a wide range of cars, trucks and SUVs. Now, Axxess is expanding the AX-DSP product line to include harnesses for Harley-Davidson motorcycles from 1998 to current models. The AX-DSP-HD1 is designed for Harley-Davidson 1998-2013 applications and the AX-DSP-HD2 is for with 2014-up* models. Both T-harnesses work with the AX-DSP, sold separately, to save installers anywhere from 30 to 50 minutes of labor time, when upgrading the sound system.
Metra Electronics has designed a new dash kit for Harley-Davidson 2014-up* Street Glide, Electra Glide, Ultra and Limited models and 2015-up* Road Glide models. The 95-9700 has been designed to fit ISO Double-DIN radios that have an “L” shaped chassis with the radio chassis at the top of the screen. Currently, only the Sony XAV-AX100, XAV-AX200 and XAV-AX500 radios utilize this design.
These new motorcycle accessories will join Metra PowerSports’ growing line of aftermarket lighting, audio and installation accessories. Earlier this year, the 95-HDIF Replacement Inner Fairing for Harley-Davidson began shipping, along with three different styles of replacement speaker bag lids. A two and four channel motorcycle amp kit was also released this summer, and Axxess began shipping the HD-ASWC1 Steering Wheel Control Interface designed to retain the audio controls on handlebars for 1998-2013 Harley-Davidson models (with handlebar radio controls). “The new AX-DSP harnesses will round out our line of aftermarket accessories for Harley-Davidson, allowing owners to upgrade their sound system with a cost-effective yet powerful DSP solution,” says Margotta.
All of the new products will be on display at SEMA in the Metra Electronics main booth 11629 (North Hall) and with the off-road, truck and powersports accessories at booth 37011 in the South Hall Upper Level. *See MetraPowerSports.com for up-to-date, vehicle specific information.
