HD MOTORCYCLE APPLICATION TECHNICAL BULLETIN

If you are planning on using the PSM on any 2014+ HD Motorcycle please note that the Factory HD radio has crossovers built into the factory HD radio which will limit the frequency response from your factory source below 100Hz. Much like any DSP or amplifier on the market the PSM can only reproduce and correct signals that are provided to it. As such the PSM cannot create specific frequencies and can only process frequencies of signal that are being provided to it from your source.
