6.5 Boom w/ amp and speaker upgrades
Hello I just wanted to post something relaying my experience with the 6.5 Boom with a Boom amp, upgraded Boom fairing speakers and Boom speaker lids. I bought my bike last November and immediately went into storage, so I never got to hear the stereo.
Then I came here and read all the posts about the 6.5 system and the AVC issue and not being able to hear the stereo on the highway. So, I panicked and went and spent a bunch of money on the above mentioned upgrades/add-ons. THEN I read all the threads about those upgrades being garbage, lol.
I am no audiophile. In fact, I am probably losing my hearing. But I am extremely pleased with the sound coming out of the speakers. It is 100% audible at 80mph with little or no distortion. In fact, it may be too loud.
That said, I'm sure it's possible to get something louder and clearer. It can probably even be done cheaper. For me, I wanted the radio, speakers and amp to be warranted.
Just my .02
