To start out with I had the standard 6" J&M speakers then added the 250w amp.
Unfortunately the installer turned the amp all the way up and I blew one of my standard speakers.

Yesterday, we installed the new J&M Rokker speakers and turned the amp down.

I must say I'm really impressed. I'm running the amp at minimum power --turned most of the way down. When on the freeway I'm travelling 80mph and have the volume on my stereo at 50% I can hear everything plain as day and I wear a 3/4 helmet!

In my opinion--- great sound
and power. I've got full range from my CD and and the radio is finally nice and loud! I couldn't be happier--Thanks J&M!

100% better than stock and worth the bucks for me----:D:D:D

Took some photos of the speakers--sorry none of the install--These speakers are larger
in the fairing and do take up more room. These are J&Ms new Rokkers with the 250 amp installed!

Looks good! I need to upgrade my sound system. My LCD in my HK radio has gone out. I can't decide on sending it to Iron Cross Audio to be fixed or go aftermarket. Plus I want to add an amp and upgrade the speakers. I thinking of going with J&M Rokker speakers and amp.

personally, I would send your Harley HK radio to Iron Cross Audio for repair/update ,,,,, as the replacement radios that I have seen are not particularly impressive in the long run ,,,,,

amorgan13 ,,,,,,

should not be a problem as I am sure that new unit has RCA out jacks built into it as part of it's design ,,,,,,

connect it direct with RCA-RCA cables ((radio shack is one good source)) and adjust the amplifier gains as per this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y6C5MiRGq1Y ,,,,,,,

here is another video that compares various speaker choices to the J&M ROKKER XTs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UmzDOMX32gA ,,,,,,,

please let me know how they work for you ,,,,,,,

Rokker XT 7.25

Will the new Rokker XT 7.25 fit in an 2004 road glide. I read its only for 06-current model. What can be done to make the xt fit in the front speaker grill area in the front stock fairing?

They should fit the inner fairings are the same. I believe the reason for the 06 and later fitment is because the 05 and earlier radios are 4 ohm systems and the 06 and later are 2 ohm systems, sense you are upgrading to a new aftermarket system that is 2 ohm the J&M system will work.
