Speakers to replace Boom 2

Good afternoon everyone got a question I have a 2016 Road Glide solar eclipse Edition pretty ironic LOL and it has the boom 2 audio upgrade front speakers and amp , saddlebag speakers and amp and these speakers are garbage I keep blowing them up getting fuzzy farting I wanted to know if anybody knows of good upgrade speakers ... I talked to J&M but they said that the boom 2 has their own sort of system you have to use their speakers with the amps don't know if I'm understanding that correctly ... I had the J&M XXR 's and they rocked in my Street Glide and a blew this thing out of the water. I'm looking for the best upgrade ... money is not an issue thanks for any input or Insight on this boom 2 crap and why you just can't drop in different speakers unless I misunderstood ... thanks again

The Boom 2 requires the Boom amp and vice versa no way around it.

You're only limit is your budget but you'll need to start from scratch.

Karl is on hiatus atm with regards to systems, soundzcustomz offers some bad ass setups, then there's Bagger Audio Lab, BadAzz Bikes and a few others that can get you exactly what you want.

Interesting. SlowRide (Karl) recently sold me a pair of speakers to replace my Boom 2 that work just fine with the Boom 2 Amp. Speakers were plug-n-play. Hawg Wired NX652-80 speakers is what I replaced the Boom 2 with.

Call Peter at Soundz Customz.... go to audio section on here and look for ANOTHER SOUNDS UPGRADE thread and watch my video...

The system sells itself when heard in person... I have installed 9 systems to date just off people hearing my scoot

The Boom 2 system uses (1) 4 channel 300w amp to power the front speakers. HD separate the tweeters from the midrange speaker and powers each off of a channel from the amp. They do the same for the rear speakers with another 4 channel 300w amp. In essence HD is treating them like 8 separate speakers. If you have that setup and you replace the fronts with Kappa 62.11i and the rear with some other speaker, what are you going to do with the unused channels? Correct me if I am wrong but that's how I believe the Boom 2 is wired up.

If you want to get out of it on the cheap(money wise) you can do a Cerwin Vega B54 amp, and then get the Infinity Kappas along witht the Biketronics BT355 line levelers and call it good.

Now will it be on the level as Spazz's? Hell no, but he has a stereo problem and has not yet gone to seek help for it. LOL

The system I used above will sound so much better than the boom crap and not break the bank, however you can always spend more and get better speakers, or a better amp(s) and go way off the deep end if you want. It really depends on how much money you want to drop on the audio, and what you are looking for.

Hope this didnt muddy the water too much.

15 RGS Vivid Black. Lots of Black stuff cause we all know Black is the fastest color. Custom Dynamics turn signals and PlasmaRods.
A.C.E. powerflex headpipes, and a better than stock stereo.
