2016 Road Glide

What's a good set up for a 2016 Road Glide, just working with the fairing set up for now. 99% of the time music is from my phone, with speeds from around town to super slab at 75+ mph. open to all ideas. Really don't want to break the bank if I don't have too. And really don't want to be heard 1/2 mile away either but if it happens oh well

Give us an idea of your budget.... that way we can filter our suggestions

Personally speaking... this is one area I would NOT 'settle' on.... most of the time... you get what you pay for...go cheap and sounds cheap.

With $500 budget, a Rockford Fozgate PBR 300x2 with Arc Audio Moto 602 speakers would sound good. I have seen this combo on eBay for $519

for $500...

Cerwin Vega B2/B52
Infinity Kappa 62.11
Biketronics Line Leveler

if you can stretch your budget;
Biketronics 2015 AND UP RG BT2180 AMP & SPEAKER PACKAGE $665 w/RGorg forum discount.

There are other combos depending on what music you like ie Arc Moto 602's if you like bass (but wouldn't run them off a PBR personally). Focal PC 165's if you want SQ. Hertz Millie's (not a fan but they are well reviewed by others) if you want loud.

I just installed the J&M Rokker XX amp and speakers in my 15 RG. Total plug and play. No need to be flashed. So far, I'm satisfied. I can hear my music clearly at 80-85 with bass which is surprising. Direct Cycle has them for $699.

I was just looking at the biketronics package they have for the new road glides. Its a little more than I would to spend but if that a better route then I really don't mind too much. Whats yalls take on that set up

Biketronics is a good choice ( no personal experience ) from what I have heard and read.

I have a Soundz Customz Level IV system with upgrades ( in my sig ).... It's outside of your $500 budget, but they have have smaller packages to look into. Just giving you options

I replied on the other forum but I'll add this as a personal note.

I started with a Cerwin Vega B2 and the Kappas, wasn't happy. Don't get me wrong, it's a good setup and 90% of us would be happy with this, or the J&M or the Hog Tunes. This is the category I'd lump all these setups in, MUCH better than stock but there's another couple of tiers out there that offer much, much more!

Got a Rockford Fosgate TM400x4, better but needed better speaker quality.

Got some Moto 602's, WIN! but I couldn't leave well enough alone...

Arc moto 6.2's, nope not loud enough.

Titan II's, nope to bright.

Hertz Millie Pro's, just not for me.

Focal PC 165, uhmmm yeah! Something that doesn't quit have the bass of the Moto 602's but the SQ is incredible and they do hit hard.

I heard the Focal KRC's on my friend bike, yeah they sound better than the PC 165's. I like them enough that they ARE on my list as a next purchase.

Point being, take a look at what you want to accomplish. If I could give anyone one piece of advice it would be to do it right the first time and be done but that can sometimes be tough.

If you want to keep the cost down and you'll be happy with something that is loud and clear but maybe not the best SQ out there, the Biketronics kit fills that niche.

If your an audiophile then just stop listening to all the opinions and get the Soundz Customz setup.

Personally, I wish I would have just listened to the very first audio guy I talked to who recommended the Focal KRC's. I just wasn't looking at spending $1100 on a 2 speaker setup (that was with a Focal amp too and installation, you can get the setup for much less).
