Advice PLease

Hey Guys, I want to replace my boom speakers with a 6.5 speaker. I plan on using a brt300x4, speaker adapters, and a bagger nation wiring kit. I need advice on 3 items, 1) I see that some speakers list them as waterproof or resistant, so what would be the "best option" for a 6.5 speaker that will withstand the weather and washing. 2)best place to get an amp heatsink and mount? bagger nation, hog wired? etc??? looking for inexpensive but good. 3) Since i have the boom speakers could I use a component speaker with boom grill? if not where could i get a stainless grill that looks like a stock black one? is there such an animal?

What does the weather do to the speakers you listed? are all newer speakers good in motorcycle applications?

any thoughts on using the boom tweeter grill with a componant speaker?

1) Waterproof = can handle water to certain depth. Rain storm etc. Water resistance = Can get wet but not for long or depth, water may get in or possible water damage.
Many speaker to chose. Check audio section hot topic upgrade here.

The Hawgwired speakers are made specifically for motorcycles, they are engineered to handle the weather and vibrations. Hertz though not motorcycle specific are tough and sound great, you'll have no problems with them. I don't know of any speakers that are truly "water proof", marine speakers won't even play underwater for an extended period of time. Most modern speakers are water resistant by virtue of the materials they are made of. Unless you plan to just soak your speakers with water, you shouldn't have any issues.
