JBL GTO638 6.5-Inch 3-Way Speakers

Just wondering if anyone has any experience with these speakers. Saw them for a pretty good price on Amazon, $63, so was thinking about giving them a try. Supposed to have good sound all the way around and the reviews are pretty good, but probably for a car, not sure for the bike. Appreciate the feedback.

I don't have these but am also on the lookout for the best bang for the buck for my 15 RGS. If you use the search filter on the reviews and use the keyword "Harley" you find 4 reviews, all positive. One is for a Road Glide also. Link below to the search.

I think I might try these out! If they aren't any good, they will end up on ebay.

I have P662's and P963's and they are the same as the Infinity Kappa 62x - albeit withouth the plastic surround. They're all made by Harmon (JBL & Infinity), the cases are the biggest difference. Love the sound, great lows, mids, and highs.

From the reviews, seems like people like them so for the price don't know that you can go wrong. Definitely see these in my near future.

I just installed the same JBL's on my 2015 RGS and I have to say they kick A$$. I know if I put an amp with them the sound will be even better, but for a new speaker and just using the head unit they are very impressive for sure. 6.5" 3 way Loudspeakers rock. JBL make one hell of a product and these speakers are worth way more with the way they sound.

I put these speakers in my 15 special last week. Took them right back out! My stock speakers were way louder and clearer. I didn't understand or believe it but that was my experience. They weren't on an amp so I wasn't expecting to blow away anybody but the sound I got was unimpressive. Stock was just better in my case.

I have a pair and so far I feel they are just ok, course they are mounted in the rear pods with no amp.
They are clearer than the factory speakers that is for sure but I was hoping for more.
I think if I switch out my 2 channel amp for a 4 channel it will wake them up.
