Replacing Stock Speaker ?

I have a stock setup in my 18 RGS, but would like better speakers for clarity at higher volume. What speakers would be a good replacement for the stock speakers. Or would it be just a waste of money?

I realize an amp makes a great difference, but I do not want to go that route. I only listen using the speakers when traveling and want to save my wireless battery on long day trips.

Any suggestions would be appreciated

The Infinity Kappa 62.11i would be your choice with the system being stock and 2 ohms...

It seems the Infinity Kappa 62.11i are no longer available. I checked the auction site and other sites, did not find this model. When I did find the listed model, it showed no longer available. I called Infinity and was told they do not offer that model any longer and did not have a replacement, that is what I was told.

Any suggestions on another good speaker setup for a stock HD setup?

Thanks

If you are sticking with ALL STOCK (no amp) any 6.5" 2 ohm speaker you can find out there should work. Just remember... some of them require lots of power to push them... and just a stock deck may not be enuf.

I would save up and get a good system with 2 speakers and an amp to start and build from there. I offer upgrade to gon in stages.. say your end goal is 4 speakers... start with 2 speakers and amp... save up and add to it later... for example

Spazz makes a great point. Get the amp to push decent speakers, or you will throw good money after bad. Take a look at Arc Audio or Biketronics. I wasted a lot of money replacing speakers, upgrading to Boom 2!, another set of speakers, and then finally Arc Audio MPAK 12 before I was happy.

You don't need to spend a bunch of money to improve the stock audio system x100.......................

Keep your factory 6.5 head unit

Buy NVX VADM2 Amp
https://www.nvx.com/vadm2/

Buy x2 MMATS PA601cx coaxial speakers
https://www.mmatsproaudio.com/site/product/pa601cx/
(spring for the water resistant coating, but you don't need rings or grills)

Buy BT355 Line Out Converter
BT355 HD Radio Line Leveler And Pre-Amp Adapter for 2014 and Up - Biketronics Inc

You can be all in for right around $475 plus the nominal cost of installation parts (figure $40 or less there)

Great advice! And I see you are from FL. If you are anywhere near me over here in the panhandle I can help you install it.
