Advice for budget minded

Well folks.. due to some unforseen circumstances, the $$ pipeline has been cut in 1/2.. I had planned on a major upgrade for my RGU stereo, but can't swing that at this time... Thought about going the Hogtunes route as an inexpensive alternative, but several have complained of issues, especially after getting wet... any recommendations to get a richer, less tin'y sound than what my OEM provides?

Boom audio from HD. Great upgrade. Put some sound deadening stuff from Best Buy-that's good, too

It's not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog...

Ouch... If I'm accurage.. this is still going to be $719.85 just in parts...

76000021 Boom Audio Rear Speakers $439.95

If you have the Ultra you don't need the harness or the high dollar rear speakers. The $400 kit has the speaker pods. Just the rear speakers are the same price as the fronts. so you are looking at $300. As far as labor, do it yourself, its not that hard

Infinity Reference 5022i, 2 ohm, 135 watt, poly cones around $45.00 a pair. Great sound and can add a amp at later time.

You only need to be 10% smarter than the thing your working on!

I have the Boom! speakers. They sound much better than stock and rain hasn't been any problem at all.
