Amp & Speakers: Bang for the Buck
Yes, I've searched this Forum and have found some good information. However, I am wondering if the items that I am leaning toward can be beaten in terms of getting even better sound for about the same money. I do not blast music, but the distortion of the stock set up is horrible.
On my FLTRX, I am staying with a 2 speaker set up in the fairing and want to keep the audio items stock looking if possible. Therefore, no rear bag speakers, no speakers in lowers, no removal of gauges to install tweeters, etc. I was planning to add the following:
Rockford Fosgate PBR 300X2 2 channel amp
Polk Audio MM651 6.5" Coax speakers
I would like to hear from those experienced in this area a number of things including:
What would you prefer as a package for the same money?
Who makes adapter rings for the rounds that wont kill me during installation?
Is it worth putting those "foam cups" of any sort around the back of the speaker or lining any cavity with foam, etc.?
Should the gain, etc., be changed in the stock head unit and what are the favored gain settings on the amp itself (PBR)
I know it's a lot to ask, but I thank all who respond very much!
