I accidentally discovered a local car audio dealer that stocks both Focal and Hertz speakers so I HAD to stop in for a listen!

Question is, which Hertz speakers are most guys running and are there any special modifications necessary? Thinking about changing out my fairing speakers. I currently run alpine spr 60C components. But I am going to go back to coaxial so I can put all of my new gauges in.

Hertz SPL's...don't mess around with anything else. No special mods...

This is all Hertz. In a couple of weeks it'll have another Hertz amp and a set of 8s in the bags to go along with what's already on the bike.

Hertz HSK and HCX here, sounds good. GrafixxMan system is insane, the video doesn't do it justice. If he adds any more I'm going to have to learn sign language to talk with him, lol. :D

For Hertz coaxial don't drop below the HCX's. SV's are awesome. You can't beat Focals, and yes, they sound so much better in the store. See if you can listen to HAT's, they crush all competition. Morel, and CDT are other options to Hertz. I'm looking to upgrade but will wait until next winter I guess.

I went with the Focals. I'll have them in today. Finishing up my under fairing work: custom painted gauges, Daymakers, and freshening up the stereo with some Focals.

Thanks David! I'm adding another HDP4 to run the 8s and the 6x9s and going to rewire the other HDP4 to run the 4 6.5s and tweeters up front. I have another set of ST35s that I might put in the bags, but with the 6x9s already having tweeters...I'll just wait and see if I need them.

It ought to be LOUD after that! ;)

The shop here doesn't sell the spl show, only the hi energy. I went with the Focals. Installing now. Freshening up the fairing today, new gauges, new speakers, and a set of chrome Daymakers.

Anybody ever had to "break-in" their speakers? When the shop installed the Focals, they said put some hours on them before you dial the tune in and push max power through them......

I have a set of Focal KRXs, after about 10 hrs of playing I had to redo and adjust the settings, they did sound better after being "broken in".
