Yes, air and volts. I am replacing mine with the J&M version because I already have their setup on my bike and its essentially plug and play. The only other one I know of that is waterproof is the the polk audio db1001. They can be had for about 75-100 bucks (the J&M ones cost me $119 shipped) and they fit perfectly in the guage hole (you will still need to fabricate a washer stackup to give the mounting "cups" for the tweeters to grab onto on the back side).

And yes, typically you remove the air temp and voltmeter. The way I see it is this...my body will let me know the air temp and if my volts are not good, im screwed whether I have a volt gauge or not.

Hog Tunes has a neat tweeter set up that replaces the speedo/tach housing with tweeters made outside the gauges, so you don't have to replace any gauges....just add the new housing. Very slick!

when I bought my bike it was done up with hogtunes,amp,front speakers,rear speakers and the tweeter pod,the complete system was a joke,couldnt hear it at 60+ mph,the tweeter pods weren't anybetter then the rest of the system,i took it to Harley twice to get them to check the setup as I couldn't get it to get any better and they couldn't either,just my experience with hogtunes.

I used the Polk Audio 6500 which are the 6.5 for the original location and come with the 1" tweeters and the required crossover network.
Drilled and mounted below the gauges.
Usually you get plenty the treble anyway, the bass is what is lacking. That is why I added the 6X9's.
