CICADA AUDIO – The “New kids” on the block
The new Cicada Audio CH8.2 speakers are a perfect solution for 2014 and later Harley baggers and other motorcycles. More output, lower frequency (NOT sub bass) . PLUS …these are 2 ohms so you get more output with smaller, higher efficiency / lower current draw amplifiers and then you don’t NEED a giant “current hog” for an amplifier to drive these. REMEMBER that POWER is NOT FREE! For every 500 watts you need 58 amperes of current! NO matter what!! So use HIGHER sensitivity speakers (like our Cicada CoAx Horns speakers) and lower power/LOWER current draw amplifiers to get the sound you deserve. Without sacrificing clarity and sound quality. Like All 8 inch speakers these speakers are NOT an easy fit into most bags. Typically, the bags are designed for 6 X 8’s NOT for 8-inch speakers. This is REALLY for Professional Installers to install. DO NOT grind on the frame to make it fit! That VOIDS the warranty. Great speaker you need to work a little to mount. That’s all.
Designed AND Built Specifically for Harley
Cicada Audio was started to develop and sell product… SPECIFICALLY for Harley-Davidsons. Even though you’ve probably never heard of Cicada Audio….our president and head engineer has been designing 12V audio for over 30 years. He has 5 design and engineering awards and 2 design patents. He’s developed 1,000’s of products in that time many gaining “cult” statuses. He REALLY knows 12-volt audio. He saw that there was a real need for some new thinking and new direction in audio. Specifically “motorcycle audio”. We, at Cicada Audio, don’t do “car” audio, we don’t do “marine” audio, we don’t do “powersport” audio. We ONLY do Harley Davidson™ audio …PERIOD!@!!
Our first products are CoAx Horn drivers. These drivers handle more power, are louder, play lower, with more authority and sound better right out of the box than any other pro audio type speaker for Harley applications. We’ve built these speakers with the best materials we can use and keep sensitivity and sound quality as high as possible. With 2-inch voice coil’s on the midbass driver and 1.4-inch voice coil on the aluminum diaphragm tweeter, we’ve built-in extreme sensitivity for unreal output and high heat dissipation. Light weight neodymium magnets and mounting dimensions specific to late model Harley fairings, these speakers are way beyond all the competition.
Along the same lines, the cone materials, surrounds and finishes have passed extensive UV exposure testing to ensure these speakers will look and sound amazing for years to come. The coaxially – horn-loaded tweeter design offers amazing efficiency and clarity.
All Cicada Audio 8 inch and 6 X 9’s are “CUSTOM “ fitted. They do NOT drop in for an easy install (but neither does 95% of all 6 X 9’s and 100% of ALL 8 inch. These are ALL CUSTOM fitted. We recommend you find a really good motorcycle audio guy to do your install.
NOTE: Will fit other motorcycle brands, with some expert assistance from your local Cicada Audio Dealer (go to our Dealer Locator to find that guy!!!)
Also, as an added benefit, we’ve designed an easily replaceable Horn Tweeter Diaphragm. We at Cicada always assume worst case scenarios! Just in case!!! We are trying to be the solution-based company for YOU!
