Wired Headset 2014 Trophy now with pictures
« on: November 26, 2014, 04:52:44 am »
I recently purchased a 2014 (blue) Trophy and found myself very frustrated with the fact that it had no audio in jack so that
I could use my molded ear plug headset. I am not a fan of speakers on motorcycles nor am I a fan of helmet speakers. After
talking to several radio techs I decided on my solution, I purchased a Line Output Converter and a RCA to 3.5mm adapter with
a 3.5mm Dash Panel Mount Audio Input Female Jack.
I had purchased a Triumph GPS mount for my Garmin 665 and since I had to take the dash apart to install it I decided to install
my Line Output Converter then as well. I actually took the speakers out of the bike and wired the LOC directly to the ends of
the speaker wires and used the speaker boxes to stow the LOC unit and extra wires. I drilled a 3/8 inch hole in the dash to mount
my headset input.
It works perfectly as the bike still thinks the speakers are still there and only cost me about $40.00 US. For those wanting to use
a wired headset this is the answer.

That is pretty cool. Motorcyclists can be a very inventive group of folks when need be.

Looks good I will have to do it sometime.  I also do not use the speakers so can cut them off.

Great idea , but I fitted speaker hack kit

  £65 you could do the same job with a jack plug but the benefit is you can still use bike speakers via the switch , worth looking at
 I had mine wired into my autocom

I fitted that speaker hack kit too...

That also means you still have speakers... Removing them will devalue the resale of the bike
Triumph Trophy! Not for every Tomaz, Dieter or Herman!🇬🇧

I certainly did not throw the speakers away I just took them out. The Trophy and I have many, many years ahead of us before we
need to be concerned with resale value. I've owned many motorcycles and I must say the Trophy is exactly what I have wanted in
them all sans the speaker setup. Lovely machine.
