Question on Speakers, Rokkers or ????

So ive had my RoadGlide two weeks now and I am already to upgrade my dull stock speakers. What I do know is i am going with two RF PBR 300X2 amps ( one for front speakers and one for some saddlebag speakers. My question is should i go with the Rokker 7 1/4 in the bags and fairing at a whopping $600 for two pairs or go with some kickers, JL, CDT etc in the 100-150 per pair speakers. I want big sound, no distortion and to be able to hear a little bass at cruising speeds. Just not 100% sold on paying premium for the Rokkers. I also plan on adding the two extra fairing speakers near the glove boxes to one of the amps later on. Thanks ahead for your input!

Gots to agree w/ Neano. I'm ditching my J&M Rokkers for Hawg Wired. Got a few things before that get done, but then the swap is happening!

If you are going to add a third pair of speakers later I think one of those amps needs to be a PBR300x4.

Look into Biketronics Titan II's. I am running them with no amp on a Sony h/u and get pretty good sound at higher volumes with no distortion. Should be even better with an amp. One great feature about Biketronics is they have a lifetime warranty. Unheard of with any other company.

Ok, after a lot of research and though, I ended up installing the RF300x4. I replaced the stick speakers with Polk MM651 components and added two Polk DX5.25 slim design in the lower part of the fairing behind the glovebox. Man does this set up sound amazing! Gain adjust is not even Half way up and at 4-5 bars of volume it is as loud as I can stand it sitting in the garage. What is surprising is that I have a full sound with even a little bass.

Do you have that amp running off the stock radio? If so what wire harness did you use for installation?

Yes i took both speaker channels off the radio and wired them to the amps supplied harness ( cutting rca ends off and Sodering) Then i switched the amp input to 2 channel so that it takes two channel from the stock head unit and converts it to four channel out put.
