Need some help,
2009 Road Glide
stock head unit
J&M 2 ohm in factory location
Pioneer 6" 4ohm cut out in lower fairing.
Had dealer put front and rear phase on Head unit
so I can run sound up top to J&M, or down below to Pioneer.

I want to add an amp on the cheap, just for better sound.
looking at the rockford pbr300x4

can I run the J&M 2 ohm along with the 6" 4 ohm .
or do I buy rockford pbr300x4 along with some new 6" 2 ohm speakers?
Thanks.

Sound Stream has a 4 channel 2 ohm stable amp that's about the same price, better amp IMO.............IJS.......

PN4.520 and you can run the 6" if you want or get something else. Your choice
Soundstream has multiple options for our bike. In addition to the PN4.520, check out the TN4.900. Its double the price, but it puts out 150 watts RMS per channel and thats at 4 ohms!!! I ordered mine yesterday because I too have the J&M amp and its just not putting out enough per channel (even in parallel dropping speakers down to 2 ohms) to get the most out of these pioneers.

Where is the best place to mount the Soundstream TN4.900D?
I'm concerned that I can't fit on side of glove box since I have my 6"s mounted there already.
Looks like people like the amp, and I can run 2 & 4 ohm at same time.
Thanks.

Also, any pictures on mounting would be great.

The TN4.900D won't fit on a roadie or batwing. . . .You would have to mount it in the saddlebag.

As Dbell and Venomized suggested . . . Go with the Soundstream. Stay away from the X4 !! Your running 2 ohm and 4 ohm speakers. As someone else mentioned the X4 is strictly 4 ohm and IMO not enough power. If at all possible you want to keep your speakers uniform. Either all 4 ohm or all 2 ohm.
