This is an impossible question for anyone to answer because everyone hears things differently. What sounds good to one may sound like crap to others. I personally love the sound of Infinity speakers with silk dome tweeters because they sound very smooth. I ran Infinity in my SG and also Biketronics Titan II's which also sound really good. Best thing for you to do is go by your local Best Buy or car audio shop and listen to all different brands. Be sure to take a disc of the music that you enjoy and don't rely on them using some mastered demo disc. Also if you have a chance to check out some other bikes at local bike nights or whatnot and see what they are running.
