Biketronics speakers are built by HAT, designed for your bike, and carry a lifetime warranty. That's where I'd start. I just installed a full Biketronics setup on my bike and it is top notch stuff.

The Biketronics speakers are built by HAT, and do not have the Clarus/Imagine tweeters. Even the HAT speakers carry a warranty with a 60% trade-up of what you pay. No disrespect, but the Biketronics are "watered down" from the Imagine series - same waterproof woofer, but no passive crossover or the tweeter assembly. As an answer to the OP question - Clarus fitment in your 15, I can't answer, but the Imagines will.

I don't know what jpeesy is getting at which is to say that I am just not educated enough on the different speaker lines that HAT makes. I'd suggest to call HAT or Biketronics. The Biketronics Pro series are really good speakers and do have separate tweeters. I bought the coaxial version or standard 7.1 speakers. They are really loud and clear. I don't care what speakers that you have, if you can tell the different in fidelity at 70mph, you have better ears than I do. In the end it was important to me to have a lifetime warranty and the backing of Biketronics.

I spoke with two different HAT reps and asked what the difference was between BT and the Imagines. I was told that the woofer is the same, but the tweeter assembly and components were not that of the Clarus/Imagine line, it was developed for Biketronics. His words, "watered-down" version. I ordered the Imagines.

I actually went to Hybrid Audio Technologies and talked to Scott who is the owner and was told that the Biketronic speakers are the same, that being said HAT does make other lines of speakers that are not offered by Biketronics. I bought my Clarus series from them while I was there and will probably outfit my truck from them when I do it.

2011 FLTRU Vivid Black Wild 1's WO502, Jackpot Headers/Jackpot Slip-ons,Ventilator S/E Breather, PV, Pro Twin Performance 113", Alpine 149BT W/ Ipod , 2 MMats MD4110's , HAT Clarus 6.5's /Legatia L1V2 tweeters & MMats PA601 up front and HAT Imagines in TourPak Pods.

Okay, pump your brakes. I'm just passing the information I was given by my two area dealers. I ended up buying Imagines instead of BT, and paid less. If it was to make a sale, they got me....

No worries.

In researching the Biketronics 7.1's and the 7.1 Pro's it was explained to me that the Pro's are a better speaker, but that any advantages in the sound was lost while riding the bike. Since I don't listen to my stereo in the driveway I opted for the standard 7.1 speakers.
