Just got my new J&M speakers last night..

Finaly after having them shipped on the 9th they showed up last night on the 18th at 10:00pm, long wait!!

Im going to install these tonight after work, I sure hope they sound and perform better than they look. I already have layed all of the Dynamat on the outer fairing and some on the inner as well to help with the vibtration and increas the bass/midbass, otherwise im going to just go with my origonal plan of a nice set of MB Quart seperates and a Rockford 2ch amp.

I dont know if the dynamat will help better than the foam pads J&M offers.
Should help though. What speakers and do you have an amp?

I have the 7.25 (not the Rocker) with the tweeters mounted on the grills, I didnt want to throw down for a amp this winter cause I spent allot on other mods already.

SHould be a decent upgrade then. I had the J&M 5.25" on my street glide and they sounded a little better than stock.
of course now i have rokker subs, and 4- 7.25" and 500 watt amp. and almost satisfied.
Should be good improvement for the money!
But that shorty windscreen is not in your favor to be able to hear the tunes at speed.

For the most part I upgraded cause the wife always complains she can never hear the stereo, Im not to worried cause I like the sound of the pipes and the motor better. I also put two USB ports and a AUX input in the right side glovebox and a spare 12v outlet in the left side glovebox. Those should come in handy..

I was not impressed

I installed the J&M 7.25's with the tweeters in the grill and can't say I'm impressed -especially considering the price tag- with the performance. IMHO the sound is just about the same as the stock HD speakers. The only consolation I have is I gave a buddies widow the money for them since they arrived after he was killed in an accident, so they hold more sentimental value than anything else. I could not recommend them otherwise.
