I am looking to upgrade my speakers and possibly add a amp to my 2013 RGU. The factory speakers have always sounded distorted with base over halfway. Looking for any suggestions. Thanks.

Wide open area, how much are you looking to spend, how many speakers, any more expansion in the future, and are you looking for plug and play or are you comfortable doing some wiring?

Definitely a good source, he also makes a lot of "plug and play" wiring harnesses.

J&M has speaker upgrade for stock stereo.I just had fairing done. I'm happy with them and will do rear later.Lots of choices ,first decide how fancy you want and only have to do it once.Try browseing on line catolog like J&P for ideas and prices.

Garacer0 ,,,,,,,

very best bang for the buck would be this amp http://www.jmcorp.com/ProductDetail.asp?ProductID=JMAA-3600HR06-RC ,,,,,,,,

these UPPER fairing speakers http://www.jmcorp.com/ProductDetail.asp?ProductID=HRSK-7252GTM ,,,,,,

these LOWER fairing speakers http://www.jmcorp.com/ProductDetail.asp?ProductID=HLPS-7252 ,,,,,,,,,,

leave the rear pod speakers alone for now, as 90% of what you hear on the highway at 80 mph will come from speakers in front of you, not behind you ,,,,,

all 100% plug-n-play with NO mods to the motorcycle or wiring ,,,,

up grade

Buy your self some hi quality 6.5 coaxle speakers hertz or audison you will need an amp.the more clean power you can deliver to the speakers the better.if you look at some of the speakers other people are offering you will notice the magnets are small.not good! To move a speaker correctly you need a powerful magnet. If you set up the fering correctly you will not need speakers any were else.

A good pair of 6.5 coaxial or components preferably, like Focal Kxx 165, or Hertz hi energy 165 with a high quality amp will make a huge difference. But.......if you decide to put speakers anywhere else, like EVERYWHERE else, you will not be disappointed. 😉

I'm gonna brag a little again. Was in Sturgis and have Alpine type R's and they survived a 6 hour monsoon and sat in the weather no protection at all and work great. And there $120 a pair and sound unreal!! 1/3 as much as Hertz.

All of my speakers used to be Alpine type r's and they held up great in all kind of weather. As a matter of fact, the only speaker I've ever used that water bothered were a set of biketronics.

I still have type r's in my tourpak pods (the hertz and focals won't fit) and my subwoofer in the tourpak is alpine as well.

The majority of well made and properly installed speakers will stand up to the weather. But that's where the comparison ends with type r's, focals, and hertz. The sound quality is on a whole different level. But for the money, the type R's are hard to beat.

I cannot comment on J&M because I have never heard them outside of a Bike Week tent. Never seen them customer installed and tuned or even on the road, so I can't knock or endorse them.......except the fact that they misspelled fairing on the boxes you posted. 😉
