Audio Experts, What Should I Go With?

So I'm not one that's been shy with an opinion on how to fix or upgrade just about anything dealing with our Sharks except for when it comes to Audio. I have never in my life been into stereo equipment on anything especially a motorcycle but now I am considering upgrading the fairing speakers and adding an amp to my 18' FLTRXS. I know what the HD options are but, you know the deal and I'm not going down that road. I can buy the stuff and install it myself but Bikeweek is ramping up even as we speak and I could just take it to one of the vendors there and have them do it because you usually get a deal on the installation. I know J&M will be there but I can't even remember who else usually shows up because I've never had an interest before. What I am looking for is just upgrading the 2 fairing speakers and an AMP that would possibly give me the option to add 2 more speakers in the lower fairings down the road if I so choose. What are some good cost friendly options?

2018 FLTRXS

There you go!

SoundZ one-thousand times over J&M. Boom Stage Kits or J&M wouldn't ever find a home in one of my bikes.

Thank you Brother... I wouldn't be on board with Soundz if I didnt 110% believe they are top quality.

Currently.. I am running 4 Carbon 65s in faring and lowers, Iron 69.2s in the lids with a Digital Signal Processor ( HD-DSP ) all powered by our SS4.100 amp... I use it to demo.... I dont talk much after that... lol

I'm in the same boat as RGken. Care to elaborate why no on J&M? I have read that the boom audio are overpriced for what they are. Thanks for the info.

The simple answer is same problem as boom. Way overpriced for the result, and yes I have used them in the past.

Do some searching here and other forums. For every 1 person that loves them it’s easy to find 4-5 that won’t go near them. Easily the most despised vendor in bike audio.

Very true... I dont knock (badmouth) other brands.. individuals have their preference and what they are will to spend. I usually tell people to listen to several different demos (research) before pulling the trigger. But if I get a phone call, text, email, pm..etc... their mind is already usually set.. it's just a matter of budget at that point.

I must be in that crowd of 'like" as I had the 600 Watt J&M Rokker 4 speaker kit thing put in my '17 and LOVED it - Was it s show piece....no, for the $$ (I think it was like $1500 installed?) and the sound clarity I had, zero complaints - All I wanted was a system that at 80MPH, it was "Clear" and I found that in my Rokker - With my iPhone plugged in, streaming Pandora, at 80 MPH and above, I was between half volume and 3/4, depending on the recording of the track and I ran that Memphis Sahdes 6/5 screen - I inquired about systems on this board a few times and was just flat out overwhelmed with everything (Like being 5 yrs old and having Einstein explain Math to you) - Motor work, Suspension work, I get that like I do breathing.......Sound Systems are a foreign language to me - Was at my Dealer and heard one of the Sales Reps ride in on his RG and the system sounded great....before he even hit the lot - I told the Shop..."Give me what he has" and was not let down

If I could find a place to ride in, listen to and then decide, I am sure would have and maybe even gone a diff route but for an ignorant fuck like me who wants simplicity and clarity......the Rokker did me fine.

In this case, I would trust Spazz 150% but that sum bitch ain't gonna ride to my crib with the gear and tools and hook that shit up for me........and the Boom 2 Crap in my '18 has to go - Not sure what I am going to do about it just yet
