I need more cowbell (bass)

I need to to add a ton of bass into my system. At the moment I have none at all. Im thinking of going with the advanblack 8” speaker lids for the bags.
Can anyone recommend speakers for the 8” lids, or any other ideas for the rear? Maybe 6x9’s over the 8”? I listen to mostly heavy metal and death metal, slayer, six feet under . I would appreciate any input, thanks.

I can tell you 8s or any speaker in a lid will not give you any bass. The JL 8.8s i had on my last bike were ok but i still wasnt happy. Your best bet is to add a set of 8s or 10s inside your bags. Im in the process of doing 10s right now.

Welcome, from One New Yorker to Another, to The Greatest Forum on The Internet!
I just put a set of PRV 8MB600FT Speakers in the saddlebags and they made a much needed improvement with the Bass in My Audio System.
I am still tuning My System tho.
A set of 10" Speakers will provide more bass but I didn't want to loose that much bag space.
Where in NY are You? I'm just north of The Big Apple.
If I can be of any assistance please let me know.

The rings you buy and bond to the bags yourself and they will fit any 10 speaker. They also sell them for 8s. Several companies sell them but i got mine from a guy on Facebook names Tim Nagy. I picked his because they were low profile and still allowed me to use the stock L shaped screws that hold the bags on.

Thanks for the input Mike U, I’m wondering if the speakers you have can handle the double bass and the low deep growls of death metal. What kind of music are you listening to on them? I live in Queens N.Y. and I was looking into these. https://www.americanhardbag.com/prod...vidson-baggers
More stealthy for Queens if you know what I mean. Thnks
