Any of the after market speakers are better than the stock speakers .I personally like The J & M products

But somthing you really want to consider is getting a amp to push them as well
You will get the tweeters for the high end but you need some push or it will still distort

A good amp and some decent speakers is a great starting point. After that, then its spending some money with adding additional speakers, with speaker pods, or saddle bag lids, etc. I have also seen speakers added to the inside of the fairing, below the glove boxes, facing the center of the bike.

I have the J&M speakers up front and like them. I'm looking for some rear speaker pods for my Tour Pak and an amp. Haven't seen anyth8ng that excites me yet.

I think it's ARC (not ACR) Audio.

I envy your skills, man. Those look great. I want to get a set of some sort and have them color matched to my TP.
