Shark Radio Update
Written by tradewinds1964 on 3/26/2012 at 05:05 am

I experimented with the Shark 150w and though I could hear, I couldn't
really "hear" it. I would catch bits and pieces of the music enough to
know what song was playing when at highway speeds.

I have since switched to the DWG system. I did not use their speakers,
just their amp and wireless remote. I purchased Polk Marine Speakers
from ebay. 185w max and I can hear everything now while cruising at
85mph on the way to work.

They are 4 inch waterproof coax speakers that I mounted in the fairing
in the cutouts. I like them. Have had no problems in the last month or
so. Of course, time will tell.

Well, dang. Since I was the one who was the Shark radio 'guinea pig', thought I'd update the group with my experience. I really thought this little radio would be the cat's meow. Installed the first one in Jan of '11. Loved it, great soun

    I am curious....I'm using the Shark 100w, and can hear it, but the remote stinks....they use some combination of buttons that doesn't work too well while you are riding....hard to push two buttons at the same time with one hand, particularly

      Here is one that might work. Proably made in China but at least sold by a semi reputable company in the USA

    I had given up on the Shark radio, and was about to pull it out, when I wondered if the thumb drive I had used went bad. Changed it, and suddenly the Shark started working again! But remote controls were not responding consistently. A friend

      Thanks for the update Dave. Even though I'm not in the market now you never know what might happen to my audio system. Tim Davies Seneca Falls, NY YankeeSmuggler II 1998 Sent from my iPhone 4S???? On Jul 2, 2012, at 5:01
