Need some help! Stereo Upgrades

Hey guys, I have my 2010 Red Fltrx getting the inner fairing done and I thought about a stereo upgrade. I need advice for a simple two speaker/amp combo. I just came across the Bazooka system for $303.00 but don't know anything about them. Need quality components for $500.00 or less. I may be adding lowers so taht should also be an option for a four channel I guess?Please advise as I need my Metalica soon!!

Wetsounds and Rockford Fosgates

Check out the wetsounds amp packages that throttle-upindustries.com has with the 6.5 inch adapters. They suggest alpine speakers I think. I am running 4 6.5inch Rockford Fosgates with 2 tweeters off of this 250 watt 2 channel amp with no problems. Everyone has there own opinion on this set up but from my personal opinion my stereo setup really rocks for what it cost me.

I can't speak for the bazooka speakers, but here is the review I did on the amp: ttp://www.roadglide.org/showthread.php?t=4850. I will say that know with about 2000 miles on it, I'm still grining from the tunes, and I'll be grining even larger when I get my lower speakers the way I want them!

Garage
I got Hog tunes with 35 watt amp and 5X7 speakers with plug and play wiring. They're not bad but think you can do better for around 5 bills . I see the Hog tunes I have are in the High two's now on Ebay.

Also think about sound proofing your inner fairing and put some thick foam or weather striping between the speakers and speaker mounts that mount to fairing for better sound also when installing new system.

2010 FLTRX , Stage 1, 13" Madstad, Mono tubes, SuperShox, Heritage style bars. Alpine CDE-HD149BT,Soundstream Picasso Nano Series PN4.520 , 5X7 and 6.5 Infinity Kappa speakers
If I have to explain ,you wouldn't under stand anyway.

Stay away from Hogtunes amp and speakers, total waste of money and not much improvement over stock.

I have the Hog tunes amp and speakers for $350 and I wouldn't do it again. Put J&M 7.25" speakers in my wife's bike and they sound as good and play louder than my Hogtune's set up and she does not have an amp. Low $200 for just the speakers. I can only imagine how much better they would be with the 250w amp but don't have the coin for that right now.

Haven't heard 1st hand any of the other speakers mentioned so can't help you there.

I literally just walked in from the garage after installing my system that I started last night. I went with the elf audio amplifier and polk db 651 6.5 speakers in the front.

Amp - $200 eBay
Speakers - $50 eBay
Speaker adapters - $40 arc audio
Wiring harness - can't remember but around $50 - arc audio
Dynamat in the fairing - $20 amazon

overall the installation took about 3 hours total taking my time and having some beers along the way. all I can say the result is an amazing difference. I can feel the bass percussion in my face. Can't wait to go for a ride.
