Default Sound sys

Has anyone tried the Rock-it 3.0 in their windshield? I am wondering how it works

Just went to YouTube and found a video where the presenter puts the "speaker" on a bike and it played well. I wonder if you could just put it on the gas tank for the best sound or even your helmet? Looks like a really great product, I'm gonna look for one of these around here.

I'm not sure I get it? What does it do? You get what you pay for.

I thought on the winshield, the round shape makes me believe the acoustic would be great... I am always looking for those cheap but good ideas

I've never heard of this, but I would think the windshield would work great. It already acts as a speaker for a lot of sounds coming from the bike itself, so it should work well to resonate the sound from the device. My only gripe is that it's 3.5mm and not bluetooth, but you can buy bluetooth to 3.5mm adapters for fairly cheap, making a pretty good, but cheap, system. As for the gas tank, I think that would be horrible because the sound would constantly change from almost none when the tank is full, to really loud when the tank is empty.

I was thinking just the opposite. Now I can tell when I'm getting low on fuel buy the sound of the song

As they said, curiosity killed the cat, so I got it and nope, the windshield is too thick to get a nice vibration, so I will try one more thing and if doesn't work I will take it back
