I don't know if you read the details, but that's just a midrange speaker, you would at least need a tweeter and crossovers to go with it, and a woofer if you want good bass, so you're going to end up spending more anyway.

I was actually just checking that out. I see some folks put tweeters in place of their gauges. I had thought about that or the Hogtunes tweeter pod. I may go back to the drawing board. I want some 6.5's. Any suggestions on that? Thanks for any help!

Go get a set of infinity 62.11i and call it a day. Can't beat em for the price and quality.

I read up on them, but my stereo is 4ohms and those are 2. Looking at the Polk DXI 651's.

Can the Infinity's get wet ?
Mines get pretty wet when it rains. .... they still work. :D Quite honestly 90% of the speakers made now are water resistant, unless you just continually pour water on them or try to go swimming with them, they'll be ok.

Are you going to amp them?
I have a Hogtunes amp right now, but I'm not even sure if it's 2 or 4 ohm's. One thing I do know is that it's only something like 24 watts or something crazy low like that. My buddy said it's a waste to even have it in there. I'll be looking at a Soundstream amp sooner than later.

The Hog Tune system is set up for two ohms. . . Your buddy is right. Waste of time. Not nearly enough power. Here is why I asked if you were going to use an amp:

If you use a 2 or 4 ohm compatible amp it doesn't matter what the HU is. From 2007 Up the Harley head unit is 2 ohms. But guys use 4 ohm amps all the time. The Rockford Fosgate PBR300X4 is a good example. Personally I'm not that impressed with the X4 because it is only rated for 4 ohms (Not 2 ohm compatible) and only 75 watts per channel.

On the other hand the X2 is much more impressive!! That's why it's such a good fit with the Infinity's!! The birth sheet (What the amp actually produces) on the X2 is always around 190 watts @ 2 ohms. This is where the amp performs best. It's 2 or 4 ohm compatible but will only give you about 125 to 130 watts with the Polks you want to use @ 4 ohms. Huge difference!!

Get the infinity's and the X2 and you will be a happy camper. Trust me!

Just as an FYI - I have a Barely used X2 sitting on my shelf in the garage I'll let go for 75.00. I had it on my bike for a month before I expanded my system and went with two sound stream 520.D's

all good information. Thanks. As for the amp, my cash is tight right now. I see another guy is interested, so I'll pass on it. Thanks though.
