JM Rokker series 2 speaker & 330AMP kit with tweeters

I just installed these on my 2013 Road Glide....I still have the stock head unit, was told I didn't need to replace the head unit as it's just as good if not better than aftermarket head units....

My question, is this really the case? sound is def better but I guess not as good as i expected since I paid a good amount for the speakers and amp... any thoughts/suggestions?? do i need a better head unit to get best sound out of the new speakers and amp or is there something else I need to tweak?

John is good about answering questions. Yes you can use you stock
Head unit.

Could be your amp is not set correctly.

jmoura22 ,,,,,,

what I am trying to ask is that with the HK radio are you using Harley's iPod adapter, XM radio module, FM stereo or something thru the front aux input ?,,,,,,

please slide in your J&M demo CD, go to track #2 and adjust the handlebar volume to maximum ,,, then please tell me how the system sounds ,,,,,,

I don't have any modules, every so often I'll plug my phone in thru the aux port but that's it...

I popped in the CD and it sounded fine, one thing I did find was the tweeter wire was going thru the middle of the front speakers so I rerouted it along the edge, not sure if that could cause it?

jmoura22 ,,,,,,,

are you saying that one of the grill tweeter wires is going thru the center of the speaker cone or around the edge ? ,,,,,,,

I am also going to help you with resetting the amp gain control once we deal with these other issues ,,,,,
