New Amp

I have the J&M Rokker setup with their 250w amp. Unfortunately, I have the J&M amp that has the defect where it detects low voltage on startup and doesn't start up. I then have to start the bike a few more times to get the radio to fire up. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.

My question is, what amp (other than J&M) can I pair with the Rokkers to get quality sound? I'm thinking about replacing the whole setup (situation has just left a very bad taste in my mouth for J&M - long story) but want to explore amp options first without purchasing new speakers too.

I read a while back John would up date that amp to the newer type that the power influx didn't affect.

I just installed a Rockford Fosgate pbr 300x2. Got it for $130 on Amazon. The only problem is , now I need better speakers.

Big Gary, yes JMJOHN would fix it if I sent it back but the quality to me just isn't there. Plus if they shipped it like this then what am I getting next time ya know? Also, the fact that I have to take apart my fairing, ship it back and wait for him to fix a known bug in his stuff is unacceptable to me. Now, if he would of said let me ship you a new one and you ship back the DEFECTIVE unit....that would of been one thing.....but he refused to do so. This whole ordeal made me have a bad taste in the J&M stuff.

So the fosgate is chewing up your Rokkers?

I hear ya.

No , I have 5x7 Hog tunes speakers. The pbr sounds much better than the Hog Tunes amp I had , but I know it really needs better speakers than what I have to really shine.

Where did you install the Rockford Fosgate pbr 300x2, fairing, tour pak, or saddlebags?

I had the problem on my street glide. I took it to the tent at bike week and they fixed for free.

Wow. Didn't know they were having this problem with their product. I'll steer clear. Thanks for the heads up.

Sometimes folks have issues with a company that leaves a bad taste. It's happened to me more than once. As far as J & m is concerned, I have had nothing short of fantastic experiences. I recently bought a 250 watt amp and Rokker Xt speakers... USED. When I called J & M for info, they told me to sent it to them and they would go through it. Robert also told me that if I wanted to upgrade the XT speakers to XX's, he would do so for $100. They turned it around in 2 days and shipped it back with new a new harness and speaker mounting hardware kit. Beyond the speaker upgrade, the total charge was $000.00...zero...nadda. For my money, the folks at J & M are tough to beat.
ps. I'm not related to them. Just my .02.
