Biketronics VS J&M

So I'm sure this post has many different opinions. I am looking into a complete new Audio system for my 2013 FLTRU. I have found out it"s expensive. I quote from J&M minus the receiver is $1,289.00, B.T. is $1,336.00 including the receiver and one from a local audio shop is $1,200.00 with everything including installation.
I WILL NOT BUY ROCKFORD FOSGATE. I had terrible luck with them.
Can anybody on this site help by giving input with J&M or Biketronics.

I've had both and installed both in friends bikes. Biketronics is far superior.

Biketronics between the choices. You can also piece together your system and save some cash.

I have Biketronics and love it! Don't forget BT has a lifetime warranty and a forum member discount.

I like the J&M stuff, all things considered.

I have had both systems and between the 2, Biketronics is the way to go in my experience.

I've owned both, biketronics hands down. Something about a superior product, awesome customer service, and lifetime warranty. Not to mention amps made in good old USA.

This exact question was asked on here several weeks ago, see this thread (same results): https://www.roadglide.org/53-audio/25...cs-vs-j-m.html

And finally - anyone want to bet a trillion gazillion dollars which company owner pops in here with his claim of his system being the best motorcycle audio available????
