was looking to get it done in the next few days or drop bike off in next few days.
Any others you guys are using or you would recommend while your gone?
First off...unless you have super deep pockets, take the JL speakers back. If you're gonna spend that type of money, you should just go with Biketronics, J&M, Hawg Wired, etc. They all offer waterproof systems that sound great and are all plug and play that you can do yourself. Currently, I have a J&M Rokker 500w amp and their Rokker fairing speakers. Picked all of it up for a great deal. If it were me and my money, there are a couple of ways I would go...
1. JL Audio XD400/4 ($250 shipped)
2. One or two pair (depending on how much bass you want) of Pioneer TS-D6902R 6x9s in the bags ($70-80 a pair).
3. 1 pair Infinity Kappa 62.11i 6.5s for the fairing ($109 a pair).
4. J&M Corp Tweeters that replace two guages ($120 pair).
That comes to about $625 for equipment (if you do two pair of Pioneers). Add another $300 to $400 for labor at your local shop and that comes to about $1000.
If the system absolutely must be waterproof, then this is what I would do...
1. Same amp as above (it will be in the fairing so moisture is not an issue. Heat is the biggest enemy of amps and this one seems to be the best for the price).
2. One or two pair of Polk Audio MM691 6x9s for the saddle bags ($150 a pair).
3. One pair of Polk Audio MM651 6.5s for the fairing ($150).
4. Same tweeters as above.
This system will give you everything you are looking for for about $650 to $800 (if you go with two pair of 6x9s) for equipment plus about $300-400 for labor at your local stereo shop.
Either way, you will come out WAY cheaper and with a better system than what you originally planned on doing. I did a little bit of both mentioned above to go along with the Rokker amp that I already have. Choice is yours.
