Ultra Classic Radio

Harley OEM Radio & Speakers are weak. What's the best way to get better sound at highway speed without SPENDING a fortune?

They say it can't be done .. but I got mine at Walmart, Pioneers for $38.00 , and they sound great...they also have almost a plastic type speaker alot more water proof than the stock HD ones...

Tried the Pioneer (4ohm) speakers and got what I paid for, NO DIFFERENCE.
Not going to go on cheap anymore, so I guess I'll bite the bullet and go with better speakers. Will I need to get an amplifier to go with good speakers to get more wattage?
