Angry Crappy speakers

Riders
Is there any speakers that can plug and play on the 15, tired of speakers blowing I am now on my 5th set of tour pack speakers, front never blows. Hearing so much about other options is stressful. I wanna go the cheapest route first then increase.

Thank

What are you powering the speakers with? Stock head unit? Aftermarket amp?

There is a whole thread on the JBL 6.5 3 way speakers on here. Best bang for the buck on the stock unit.

Crappy Speakers

J&M has speakers that are plug and play. I realize you stated low cost and go up and J&M are not the cheapest, but they will handle an AMP if you decide to add one later. So if you might add an AMP later, you may want to consider speakers that would handle the added power. I have the J&M speakers and have never had an issue with them. I am running a Hawg Wired RS400 AMP which gives me about 200W per channel.

JBL 6.5 3 way speakers are probably your best option for not spending much money and having a more durable speaker. They aren't any louder, sound quality/improvement over stock is negligable...YMMV

Crappy speakers

Not sure how on earth you've blown 5 sets of speakers bro! That's something you might want to take a look into. Your head unit isn't overpowering any speakers. It only puts out 25w/ channel. As long as the impedance matches up with your head unit (2ohm), you should be able to use any speaker that fits into your pods. Do you have an ultra or did you add tp speaker pods?
