I've purchased a J&M Bluetooth headset for my Nolan flipface helmet (old-style--pre-N-Com). Instructions say to cut out a section of the polystyrene shell slightly smaller than the circumference of a speaker to accomplish a press fit of the speaker into the shell. However, the speakers are only about 3/16" thick and the shell is about 3/8" at this point. Should I just dig out a recess for the speakers or cut all the way through and pop out a disk of the shell?

I have the J&M BT system as well, in a Nolan flip-face helmet, with the only difference being that mine is an N-102 NCom. However I believe speaker install would be the same. I used a dremmel tool and just removed a layer, maybe 1/4" or so and then used the supplied sticky-backed velcro to attach. I have been using this system for over 2 years without issue and have not had any issues, fit or function.

As an aside, I also found that I needed to create a little "slot" in the chin bar to keep the mike from rubbing my face at times. I used the same tool to create a notch in the middle of the chin bar. Once I close the helmet I just reach inside the face shield opening and "click" the mike into place. It comes free cleanly on it's own when I open the helmet. Though I don't like to use the phone when riding (I use it mostly for music), on several occasions I have had callers unable to believe I was on the bike, at highway speeds, as the sound was perfectly normal without any excessive background noise.

Hope this is helpful and good luck! GLM

I have a Nolan N100 flip face, but the wired version of the J&M speakers. I didn't have to cut any of the foam, I just removed the 2 small pieces of padding that are next to your ears and the speakers fit in there with velcro. I've done several thousand miles like that, and its comfortable and the sound is good.

I do have the mic, but I never had anything i needed it for...when i tried my cell phone hookup, it didn't work with my J&M audio system for some reason. Most likely a phone issue, not the J&M. And since i ride solo most of the time, I never used the communications part of it.

Make sure you know where the center of your ear is in relation to the speaker center. remove the cheekpads, center the speaker, remove any exterior plastic with a razor blade, using the speaker to draw the shape, get a hot soldering iron and melt the styrofoam away to the proper depth. does not make a huge mess and is really quick. You may have to clean the soldering iron but no biggy. Good luck. Kieth :thumbup:
