JM Rokker VS Boom audio

I bought new JM Rokker speakers for my last RG but traded the bike for a 2013 CVO that has Boom audio so they never came out of the box. The Boom audio sounds good, but is the JM Rokker better?

Yes especially if you are using an amp. Even better if these are the XTs or XX. there is plenty of info on JM in their respective sub group in the vendor section.

I went with the J&M system when I got my bike because I like the fact that it is a bigger speaker. The front J&M are 7.25" while I believe the Boom Audio is 6.5"

I had a problem with my amp after about 2 months. I sent it back to J&M. Excellent customer service on getting my stuff fixed.

Later,

Brew

Unless your upgrading amps there wont be a noticeable difference. With a bigger amp the J&M's win hands down.

2011 RGU with more money then sence in it.
Oh and its black because blacks faster.

Just pulled my Boom Audio amp and speakers today and installed the Rokker 7.25 in the fairing and the lowers with the 500 watt amp. HUGE difference. No distortion. Very pleased.

I upgraded to the 500 w amp when I installed the rear speakers. I have to say its like having surround sound going down the highway. Never tried the boom amps so I can't compare .
