speaker upgrade (2010 FLHX)

I started to think about upgrading my speakers.

I've not done much research yet, but wanted to hear opinions from those who have replaced the stock speakers w/ aftermarket units.

I was looking at J&M and Hogtunes.

Do they actually make that much of a difference compared w/ the stock ones? I'm hoping to find out if they are worth the money, especially if you can actually listen to the music at highway cruise. I can KIND OF still hear it at 70-75mph, but at any faster speed, it is awefully difficult to actually hear the music w/ the stock speakers...

Any input would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Hogtunes

I just installed a set of Hogtunes in my 04 Electra Glide, they are great, best 120.00 bucks i have spent. Only need to run the volume at 1/2 to 3/4 at the most.

What ever speakers you decide on make sure they are specific to your model and year bike . The late model Harley HK system uses 2 ohm speakers .

I had Hog Tunes, amp and pod, they were OK, but I won't buy them again for the new bike. Looking at J&Ms this time around.

The J&M 7.25" speaker kit with the grill mounted tweeter/midrange are THE most efficient speakers you can buy for your Harley ,,,, with OR without an amplifier ,,,,,,

Instead of bumping up the speakers, I put on a Clearview 8.5" w/recurve. Loud and clear @ 75mph now.

I put the "Boom" Bagger HArley speakers in my 05 Electra Glide CLassic. Says they're for 06 and up but work fine on my 05. Really happy with them I used to run almost full volume with the Satellite radio or MP3 but now only 1/4 - 1/2 volume.[
