JL Audio upgrade

I am taking out my JM 7.25 3 was speakers and Elf Audio amp and am replacing them with a new setup with the JL C5 6.5 components and the Xd4004 amp. I chose the 4 channel amp just incase the fronts are not enough and I want to add a st of 6x9s in the baglids. I will post some picts as soon as I start but as of right now I just ordered the amp and speakers.

Can I ask why you taking out your JM 7.25 and amp? I thought the JM`s were supposed to be the S__T? Everyone brags about how good they are.

If your going to do something give it all you got, might be the last time you ever do it !!!

the more I read about stereo systems for the Road Glide the more I see that people are taking out the Jm 7.25 and amp and going a different setup. I wonder why?

not having heard them myself, what i have been told when i asked a couple of people who didn't like them, they said that they were too big to be so close together so they did not have good stereo separation. just sounded like one big speaker.

You know, I don't know why, but I'm anti- J&M. I don't own a pair, but I have heard many J&M applications in person. They sound good, they just don't impress me. Its hard to use automotive equipment in an outdoor setting and achieve the results you want. The acoustics aren't there. I know there are systems on bikes here in the bay area that blow others away, but that's what $$$ will get you.

I guess MY problem is all the limited options for Road Glides. It seems we are all putting in the same stuff. I like to see when people venture out and do something different. Granted, there is nothing "custom" about my Road Glide Custom, but I have to give props when someone goes against the grain.

I was hoping to hear the JMs at the International Bike Show in Greenville, SC last weekend but all they had was a kiosk setup w/ brochures. There wasn't a factory rep present. The tunes are down the road for me yet so I'll be interested to see what you think of the JL stuff...always been a fan of JL.
