Dealership credit: Hogtunes... Yay or nay?

I recently picked up my 2015 FLTRXS and had some parts/service (handlebars) financed into my payments. I have since decided to go with a different bar they cant order, so I will credited back the amount of the bars, wires and shop time.

Long story short...

I will have $400-$500 in credit towards other parts and after riding the bike for a day, I realize the stereo needs an upgrade if I really want to be able to hear it.
I have been looking at the HogTunes set up: http://www.hogtunes.com/bikes/roadglide2015.html

I know the dealer can get it since its in the DragSpecialities book. What is everyone thoughts on Hogtunes..?

Haven't seen a whole lot in my reading, seems like a lot of people go JM or Infinity.
Let me know.

In my opinion, the lids are top quality... it just depends on which speakers you run in them.. I run Polk speakers which sound great, I haven't heard the hog tunes 6x9.

Their lids are badass but their speakers are lacking. There are a lot better speakers out there for the money.i bought some pioneer 6x9 speakers off amazon for 75 bucks new that sound awesome.

Just weighing my options of what I can get using what they owe me. For $460 getting speakers and amp is way better than what they want for the Boom! stuff (which I hear isn't all that good).

I hate to say it but IMO the boom stuff sounds better. Take a 460.00 check.

Hog tunes speakers & amps suck in my opinion. Had them and switched Rockford Fosgate amp & speakers, not much better so went with Hawg-Wired an they rock, also sold in Drag Specialties catalog

If you have to have the credit , get the HT lids and upgrade the rest of the system elsewhere.

I read a lot of negative comments about Hogtunes. My Hogtunes amp and speakers were one of my first mods. Compared to the stock setup they are a big improvement. I agree they are likely not the best setup, but for the money it is nice. I'm not an audio snob so not having the loudest clearest setup doesnt bother me. I can hear mine doing 75mph at 3/4 volume. If my exhaust was quieter I could probably go 1/2 volume.

I would have to say the same thing about my Hogtunes set up. I like it, but it does NOT have "Thunderous" bass. I mean, what can you expect from such small speakers? It was one of my first mods as well, and like "Hullhorr" said not bad for the relatively low cost.

Talked to them last night when I was in finalizing my handlebar situation.
My options are basically anything in the DragSpecialities catalog. Looked through and they can get JM and such as well.

Again... I am not audiophile, just want something that sounds better than stock that I can hear at highway speed.
