I'm planning on throwing some vented lowers on and adding speakers in them. Figured while I was at it I might as well replace the fairing speakers and I'll need a new amp anyway. I don't want to change my head unit if I can avoid it as I've got all the ipod integration junk on the CVO.

I don't know the first thing about where to start with brands, I've read some threads that said focal are good and the j&m rokkers look pretty plug and play for my application.

Looking for feedback, ideas, thoughts, etc...Thanks!

There are many brands to choose from. Infinity, Boston Acoustics, Focal, Polk and Rockford Fosgate are all great sounding speakers but are not designed for m/c application. That does not matter to most though. And many people run them with zero issues. As long as you match the impedance to the h/u you should be fine.

In my Street Glide I ran the Biketronics Titan II's which are made by Hybrid Audio. The only thing pushing them was a Sony DMR head unit and they sounded pretty damn good. They are on the pricey side but carry a lifetime warranty and are made for m/c applications. I have heard J&M and they do not impress me in the slightest. Then you have Hogtunes, which I am considering right now. Also Hawg Wired. All of these are m/c specific.

Best thing to do is try to listen to some different brands and figure out what you like. Go by Best Buy. They carry most of the major brands. Also try to attend some rallys or bike shows that might have some of the m/c specific companies on display.

It all comes down to what you like and what sounds good to you. Speaker choices are as subjective as exhaust and seat choices.

I have a 2012 CVO Maple Metallic. I've upgrade the front speakers with JL Audio C3 components which are a 5x7 with separate tweeter, perfect fit, nice speaker. I'm in the process of adding Cyclesound lids with Hertz HCX690.
Will power each set of speakers with a Hawg Wired RS400 amp, with the remote for tuning. I sent my stock head unit to Iron Cross Audio and had them install front and rear preamp outputs and reflash to activate the rear fade function. Way cheeper than an installing aftermarket head unit, should work really well.
