J&M Rokker Speaker & AMP Review

To start out with I had the standard 6" J&M speakers then added the 250w amp.
Unfortunately the installer turned the amp all the way up and I blew one of my standard speakers.

Yesterday, we installed the new J&M Rokker speakers and turned the amp down.

I must say I'm really impressed. I'm running the amp at minimum power --turned most of the way down. When on the freeway I'm travelling 80mph and have the volume on my stereo at 50% I can hear everything plain as day and I wear a 3/4 helmet!

In my opinion--- great sound
and power. I've got full range from my CD and and the radio is finally nice and loud! I couldn't be happier--Thanks J&M!

100% better than stock and worth the bucks for me----

Bill

Took some photos of the speakers--sorry none of the install--These speakers are larger
in the fairing and do take up more room. These are J&Ms new Rokkers with the 250 amp installed!

Looks good! I need to upgrade my sound system. My LCD in my HK radio has gone out. I can't decide on sending it to Iron Cross Audio to be fixed or go aftermarket. Plus I want to add an amp and upgrade the speakers. I thinking of going with J&M Rokker speakers and amp.

fitter ,,,,,

personally, I would send your Harley HK radio to Iron Cross Audio for repair/update ,,,,, as the replacement radios that I have seen are not particularly impressive in the long run ,,,,,

amorgan13 ,,,,,,

should not be a problem as I am sure that new unit has RCA out jacks built into it as part of it's design ,,,,,,

connect it direct with RCA-RCA cables ((radio shack is one good source)) and adjust the amplifier gains as per this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y6C5MiRGq1Y ,,,,,,,

here is another video that compares various speaker choices to the J&M ROKKER XTs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UmzDOMX32gA ,,,,,,,

please let me know how they work for you ,,,,,,,

Just got the rokker speakers and 250 amp. Good sound in my garage, too cold for a road test though.

Rokker XT 7.25

Will the new Rokker XT 7.25 fit in an 2004 road glide. I read its only for 06-current model. What can be done to make the xt fit in the front speaker grill area in the front stock fairing?
