I'm just gonna sit back with a cocktail and wait for Spazz to swoop into the thread. He and sloride are probably the 2 most knowledgeable people as far as bleeding edge, super high end audio goes.

If they say something and money is no object, I would just go with their suggestion and be done with the audio part of your scoot, Eddie.

Meanwhile, I will dream about money being no object. LOL. (I knew I should have stayed in school instead of riding all of those damn Davidsons, all my adult life.... Just one more poor life decision on my part. LMAO).

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.
If you choose not to decide you still have made a choice. RUSH Freewill

What I typically do is find the best of the best.......and go a few model #s below - I don't have a set budget but am not going to dump $5K into tunes either - I still just want a kick fucking ass Amp and 2 Speakers as I am solo on the Bagger 99% of the time, have the low profile engine guard so no lowers.......and never understood Bag Lids for the rider

My set up-
AMP- Arc Moto 600.4 Amp with Arc PSM digital Processor.
Speakers- Focal ps165fx, I have uppers and lowers.
There are better set up but, you will hit that 5K budget. I was looking at speakers that were 5K WOW! I said no thank you. My system is pretty bumpin,

Oh- about $2600 into my system but again I have uppers and lowers.

I want good tunes but for $5K, I"ll just here Steven Tyler to ride bitch and scream Lyrics in my ear.

I have been reading so many articles on Amps and Speaker and 2 channel and 4 channel and Stabilizers and tuners and AHHHHHHHH - I just want a bad ass loud as fuck 2 speaker system......if such a thing can be had - I don't want lowers or bag lids and I think that is where I get corn holed as all the "systems" seem to be geared toward multiple speaker - I did see a Rockford Fosgate System for $1k but I have no idea if it is any good or just more crap like I already sunk $1200 into

Your never gonna get the sound that'll blow you away with a 2 speaker system on a moving motorcycle but you'll get pretty good sound without spending a fortune this way you'll have a few bucks left for extended bags etc. I've had a couple different setups in my pre Rushmore but now have Biketronics & Im happy with the sound & great customer service. Oh and don't talk to Spazz, his system is ridiculous & he hates his neighbors, your neighbor John is a cool cat

Check out Biketronics Inc

Pro audio like mmats or prv will get you loud as all get out but lacks the warmth a lot of guys like. You typically need something else for fill with those speakers.

I run hertz ml1650.3 with mp28 tweeters with about 200W going to them. No lowers lids or anything else. They get plenty loud but still have great clarity and sound quality (at least imo, some guys don't care for the hertz sound).
