Another Audio Thread :-) Soundz Customz

Anyone have any experience with Soundz Customz? I'll be going to delmarva bike week and they will be there....looking at their website looks as though they have several levels of audio. I currently have the J&M Rokkers w/J&M 250w and I'm curious what level I need to buy to get some real quality sound. The J&M just don't do it for me.

I don't have any experience with them. Not am I an educated audio guy. I would like to know what kind of head unit you're using.

I have the J&M 7.25 speakers. There was a definite improvement with the stock head unit. I recently installed a Sony aftermarket and it woke the speakers up. I don't yet have an amp. The audio experts may be able to confirm if this would help.

Whenever they come to Daytona, they are about 100ft away from the JM booth, so I've had a few chances to compare. They both use basically the same amp, (JM is just an ARC renamed IMO), and I was more impressed with the Focal than JM speakers, but that's me, you may feel different.

So it sounds like it wasn't a very noticeable difference?

It was noticeable to me, but I believe everybody has their own opinion, mine was that the JM may have been a tad louder, but the Focal had better sound.
Hopefully both will be set up and you can make the comparison.

stock head unit is a bottleneck

check out Alpine UTE-42BT or sony ms-60 for 3 band head units

I run sony - worlds better - doesn't start feeding back into itself after 4 like the oem unit

better speakers are you're everything - el cheapo rockford amps work fine for me, but I know I have decent speakers

really it's you set up, but usually the demo truck is in a parking lot, not out on the road doing 60mph

I get more from the ZX than the HAT's on the road, but the HAT's sound better in the garage

I had them install the Arc Audio 125.2 amp and Focal 165 speakers in Laughlin in 2012.

I love the system. But Just recently I had an issue with a speaker going out. Turns out it was a short in the RCA line adapter. I took out the RCA line adapter and went direct in the amp.

Problem solved.

I installed the stage 4 kit plus Focal 5x7's in my lids with another ARC amp for them. All from Soundz. Pete is a great guy. Even when they were in sturgis he answered my phone calls with questions I had on my install. The Focals ROCK!!!!! I love the system and all the connections were pre done for me so install was a snap. So far no probs and the lid speakers have no leakes yet...
