Stock upgrade?

This 06 has stock audio and the speakers are just junk and distorted.
I don't want to upgrade anything but the speakers no amp. What is a good quality sound speaker and should I get the adapter for the larger speaker or stay stock because I do not have a amp.
Trying to stay under $150 Hogtunes was one suggestion they run about $130
Any input is appreciated

go 6.5" or dont waste your money...You will need 5.25" to 6.5" adapters for around $50

Then find a set of Infinity Kappa 62.11i

They are not made any more but there are a few sets out there still... best bang for your buck w/o an amp

You MUST stick with 2 OHM speakers unless you add an amp

No... I have not. I just know from history that it was the go-to for a budget upgrade with no amp and I have heard the 11i's before...they are better than stock for sure

I guess my concern is they are listed as car speakers to where motorcycle speakers usually are listed as marine and water/moisture resistant. I will read up on them some more

Most all speakes today are water resistant. No paper cones anymore, they all are some type of poly. The marine speakers usually have the xover on the rear coated in a rubber booting.
The Infinity kappa 6211i are good speakers for the money. Mine got wet plenty of times and never had problems.
They can be had for as low as $50 .

Marine doesnt equal motorcycle... marine grade mean water resistant.. as in for boats.

Just dont drown your bike in water when you wash it near the speakers and keep the stock grille material there and you will be fine.
