Took the plunge last night, ordered some 5 1/4 infinity 5211i kappa series speakers, just looking for some clarity on the sound. Anyone have some input on these? Will I need a amp to really drive em or will the HK b enough? Not going to any competitions or anything just want something with more clarity!:cool:

Those are nice but you would be much happier getting a pair of 6.5 inch adapters and buying the infinity 62.11i speakers. more clarity, more volume at speed. You can buy a set of rings from Arc audio or Biketronics. These fit perfect.

You will need an amp the drive em . . . .The Rockford Fosgate PBR300X2 would be my choice. Had this set up and it rocks!

Do all the amps require taking off tank running power lead n ground all the way to battery? This is what has me not wanting to do amp. Looks a little more than I want to do right now bike is barely over a year old . And I refuse to take it to the Stealer!! I have pretty good mechanical skills I did my apes n internally wired em with no probs. but just don't want to dig to deep n have something go wrong n they not want to do something on my warranty. All I want is not so much distortion at upper levels of volume.:confused:

OMG, if you wired your apes, removing the tank will be a freakin' snap. It's really not difficult. If that's what's holding you back...go for it. Seriously

No Sir. . . If you just loosen the bolts on the tank you should be able to lift up the tank a couple of inches just enough to snake the power and ground (If necessary) under the tank to the battery. Just make sure you pull the wires tight enough so the wires won't touch the top of the heads. On the 13 the tank is real simple to take off if your are uncomfortable with this scenario. . . If you did your Apes. . . Hooking up the fosgate is a piece of cake.

+1 on the Soundstream 520.D Great Amp! Running two of these. Road my bike from Indianapolis to Dallas year before last. Temp was 111 degrees in Dallas. Both amps were warm to the touch after playing loud 8 hours straight. However be advised the Soundstream will interfere with the FM radio on certain bikes if you like listening to FM! I've never had a problem but some guys do.
