After removing the internal cheek pads of your helmet, check your speakers as speakers are of two types.
- One that comes with adhesives or features glue on the back side.
- The second type has a Velcro on the back side.
In the option of what you have, begin with fitting the audio speakers in the speaker bags of your helmet padding. Sometimes, speaker pieces can be a bit larger than the pouch dimension. So under those circumstances, make cuts in your padding consistently and then fit the speakers with adhesives or Velcro.
If your helmet does not come with a speaker pouch, no need to get worried because most intercoms come with an adhesive Velcro mount. You can put the Velcro mount to the side of your helmet and attach the speakers to them. Moreover, use audio speaker covers if they comprise your intercom device.
