Bazooka MAC6502B Marine Waterproof 6.5" Audio Speakers Black

Was wondering if anyone has tried these? Would like to have some bass without a sub. Looking for decent (clean) sound not just loud.

Any speakers will be better than the stock ones but for the best results you will need an amp. I would also recommend upgrading to 6.5" speakers as well

Yoyr honestly never going to get "bass" per say, more like more "depth". Thats the reason I went with 6.5", was to get more depth out of my music on the bike. Any bass is lost once you start moving.

I use to have Bazookas back in the 80s in my Bronco when they where good. Not any more--There quality has downgraded just like a lot of other "BRANDS", Your better off with Polks or JBL's

Dan i went with a set of 6.5 Polks without an amp. Vast improvment over the stock 5.25" speakers but like previously posted, bass is hard to come by on the bikes. Especially without amps and a subwoofer.

Agree bass hard to hear while riding, need amp and speakers, sub setup. Used Polk MM series other good speakers Infinity and JL.
Will need more power for better sound the HK not enough.
FYI have a set of J&M 7.25" professional series, may be first 7.25" series laying around.
