Anyone tried Hertz Mille MPX 165.3 Pros or Arc Audio 602 in a 15/16 yet?

So I think I'm going to bite the bullet and trade my 13 in on a 16. I love my BT setup now, so initial thought was to stick with BT and just run their 6.5 since the 7.1 won't fit. Then out of nowhere the new Hertz Mille MPX 165.3 Pros are getting some kick butt reviews in a batwing fairing, and of course the Arc Audio 602s have been a favorite for many guys for awhile too.

That being said, the 15/16 RG pods are a different animal compared to an open pre-15 RG fairing or a new batwing fairing with pods removed.

Anyone give either of these speakers a shot yet in the pods - if so, your thoughts and what are you comparing them to?????

Should have my 602's next week.

I'm under the impression that they need an adapter ring or they'll hit the rib inside the speaker pod.

I'll find to for sure once they get here Tuesday or Wednesday.

BTW I'm running Kappas pushed by a CW B2 right now so I'll let you know the sound difference there too.

Looking forward to hearing how they work for you, thanks Bunker. I'm familiar with the kappa/B2 setup so that will be a good reference point. Are you keeping the B2 or changing amps too? I know it's a crapshoot for the adapters, I'm thinking they will need them - from what I've seen in other posts the speakers with bigger magnets need them, those with smaller ones do not.

yeah upgrading amps too, going with a Rockford Fosgate TM400X4ad. Going to add lowers or a quad fairing setup, just not sure which yet

I plan on testing the 602's with the B2 first (will just be in the garage but will get a point a reference)

Looking forward to your test. On the other forum, the Milles are getting rave reviews. I just installed the B2 with the Kappas. So much better then factory. Already want more!

lol I did the same thing, had the B2 and Kappas for 2 days and ordered upgrades! Not that the B2 and Kappas are bad, I think their awesome I just want more... I'm like a crack fiend!

Mille's are hot on the other forum as well as the bagger facebook group, the new hot ticket it seems. I'm sticking with the Moto's though, I hear they have better bass and that's what I'm looking for atm.

I had BT 7.1 with a fosgate 300x2 I'm my 13 SG and it sounded good. Last month I installed the BT amp and 6.5 in my rgs and it's way better than the previous set up. Plenty of bass and the lifetime warranty. I did seal my pods sealer but did not use polyfill.

Good to know MisterD. The 300x2 is good little amp, just not enough juice to push the 7.1 to their potential. Too bad the 7.1 don't fit in the new RGS.

Just curious if your are using the BT line leveler, magic box, or playing around with the flash.

on the other forums Bill from biketronics did mention that they might make an adapter to fit 7.1's in out RG's in the future but they sounded really good with the 6.5's that it wasn't a priority. Maybe these pods are a blessing after all.

I used the BT line leveler. Btw, the entire system was plug and play. I didn't cut or spice any wires. Mention you are a forum member for the BT discount.

I almost went with the moto 602, but when the demand increase the price jumped 100 bucks. I also talked to a fella that installed them on his 15rgs. Fitment is tight, he had to remove the rubber tire thing.

Bill at BT told me I could send the BT speakers back if I wasnt happy with them. At the end of the day, the set up is perfect for me. I love the music loud, it's clear at 80 mph and momma can hear it. Sometimes I can't even hear my d&d exhaust.
