Speakers! I need some help!

I have a 2013 Road Glide Ultra, I just installed the Aquatic AV head unit and it's going to destroy my stock speakers as soon as I hit the road next month so I'm wondering what would be the best speakers (Water Proof only) would work best aside from those goofy boat speakers?

Thanks in advance!

Speakers! I need some help!

I'm using the J&M 7.25 speakers in the front and hertz 6x9s in my lids... I am also using the AV head unit, using the J&M 500 watt amp and I can crank it all the way up. Can cruise the highway at 80 and hear everything perfectly...

Thanks in advance!

The goofy boat speakers are the only ones that are actually waterproof. By that, I mean actually sealed. The others, like the HD speakers are more water resistant. For that, you have biketronics, focal, and J&M I think. I use focal and hertz. No problems. I've also used alpine SPR with no problems and an awesome sound for the price. Good luck.

DD Audio CXS 6.5 speakers are good to go in the rain. I've got two sets of them and they hold up well! Best part is, you can get them for 100 bucks a pair and they are loud!

I use J&M and they are a marine grade speaker and you can get them as wet as you want and they work.
