My post is to find out how those who already have theirs from Reckless did their stereo installations. Most posts are about the kevnly fairing installations from what I can tell.
Wasn't being a smarta$$ with my response. I saw a question and tried to help. And being that this thread was up to 17 pages, I didn't read every single response. But thanks for clearing up your question, because I misunderstood what you were asking for.

I ordered mine on the 3rd and it was shipped today. I have not gotten a delivery date other than Alex saying it should only take about three days. I also ask him about the splash guard size and he said that the opening was 8 1/2 x 31/2 . So the splash guard listed on another post may not fit without some modifications to the fairing.

Alex does a great job with communication I just wish the painter could get it together. I am getting frustrated from the wait

For those wanting to know about stereo install in the reckless, (I did something different) but get a single DIN marine stereo and then a cover. If you get the following, it actually fits the opening perfectly and has a tray that supports the single din radio:

I bought the Pyle 5.25" speakers. The grills are slightly larger that the flat portion of the rounds, but reasonable. I did have to enlarge the holes slightly for these to fit. I used a dremel tool and drum sanding bit. You don't have to take much off, and it goes very fast with the dremel. Note how the speaker grills line up and make your enlarged hole to get the best fit for your grills.

I'll post some pics as I start putting mine back together this weekend to finish the mockup before painting.

I hope this helps.

The model number for the Audiovox cover in your link (MRH211B ) is exactly the same as the Jensen cover mentioned previous. I suspect these are the same covers just re-branded.
