Just finished up my build on my 2013 denim black road glide and now want to upgrade my fairing speakers and add a amp. Was looking at the level two from soundz cusomz which is a arc amp with focal ic165 or the arc mpak 6 or 7 which is same amp and the arc moto 602's, which one is the better package.

I know the focals sound great, I don't know about the other, I'm just kind of curious about the price. You could piece the arc, and focals together for around $500 to include adapters and wiring.

they are both around $600 through different online dealers
Ok, sounds good, I would probably go with the Focals, but that's because of their reputation and the fact that I have 3 sets now. :D I've been through a few other brands and the focals are good for me.

I've got the soundz customz level 2 installed on my 12 FLTRX at Laughlin last year, It sounds great.

Can't compare to your other option but night and day better than stock

Call and talk to Pete at Soundz Customz (605-274-3535). He will take the time to answer all your questions about the different Arc amps and Focal speakers. He is a great guy and won't try to sell you something you don't want or need.

]Yo John, where would one find that discount code? :confused:[/B]

I tried sending John a p.m., but it is not possible as his profile does not permit it. I have also tried by responding to threads on which he has posted, but thus far, I have not gotten a response. I was interested in the 7.25 speakers, the amp with the mounting brackets and also the sound absorption material that they sell as plug and play kits. We'll see....

Cool thanks everyone for the input most likely going with the focals
I think that is the best choice. I've read many posts on audio from many forums and I have not read anyone being disappointed with Focals. I have read many posts where folks were disappointed with Arc speakers.

I have he Hawg Wire 6 Pack with Tweeter Grilles and love it.
I'm waiting on their remote and the system will be fine tuned.
It really ROCKS now, so I can only imagine what it's gonna sound like when the fairing is back on.
The HW equipment is made for motorcycles by motorcyle riders.
I highly recommend them to anyone in the market for a "Top of The Line" stereo system.

Mike U ,,,,,,

the folks over at HawgWired do a great job ,,,,,,

just remember that J&M Corporation has been in the motorcycle audio business for 35 years now, and I have had a new Harley Ultra every year since 1989,,,,,, I ride with what we sell ,,,,,

I am not blowing smoke when I say that the J&M audio amplifiers & speakers provide the very best sound available within their perspective price ranges, both ROKKER XT series and our new PERFORMANCE series ,,,,,

ROKKER XT series here http://www.jmcorp.com/SeeProducts.asp?PF=45 ,,,,,,

New PERFORMANCE series here http://www.jmcorp.com/SeeProducts.asp?PF=44 ,,,,,

John,
How do the Performance Series do with just the stock HK radio, compared to the terrible stock speakers/sound? Want to upgrade, but $$$'s tight.

JMJOHN, I know your Equipment is Top Notch. I had a set of your handlebar speakers on my Deluxe and loved them. If I hadn't gotten such a great deal on my Hawg Wired Set Up, I would have purchased your Rokker XT Series.
In my opinion you can't go wrong with either company.

I ordered a set of Performance Series speakers yesterday. I'll get the amp when I get money for it. At least it's a start towards better sound.
