I got the Hogtunes set up much better than the stock harley speakers, I forget what size speakers they are but they are not marine grade and I have had no problems whatsoever.

In a world filled with shades of grey there is one absolute... it is impossible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

As long as the speakers dont have paper in them, you should be ok.

I run Sony Xplod's - Not listed as "Waterproof" but have been completely soaked, no problems..

However, the Polk 521's are pretty damn incredible speakers.. If I need to change, Ill be going with them for sure. I just happened to come across these Sony's for nothin..

+1 to the Polks mentioned above, and I'd also recommend the Memphis Car Audio offerings if they'll fit. The PR series is a nice compromise between sound and price tag.

They look like a well made speaker but they are 2 ohm, to match the Harley Harmon-Karden radios. They might not play well with a 50w/ch (15-18RMS) head unit because they will have quite a draw at top volume. Personally, I'd stick with 4 ohm choices if that's what the Victory radio was designed for. If you are going to add an amp then you'd just want to make sure the amp was designed & rated to be stable down to 2 ohms.

The Vic uses a 2 ohm like HD.. As for an amp, still not sure I will go that route. The local Audio stor I go to said to get these 2 ohm speakers. He said I would get better sound and responce than if I went to the 4 ohm ones. And he knew I was thinking of an amp as well..

What did you pay for the Hogtunes setup?

That sounds like a great choice then if they fit. The H-D radio is a little on the under-powered side so anything designed for the stock H-D radio will probably be done with efficiency in mind, to get max volume out of it.

Check the depth you have available. There has been a few discussions on the Vision-riders forum about changing speakers and depth has been an issue for some of the "better" speaker options. I simply (and cheaply!)installed some baffles and that really helped the stock speakers.

ThankX, no issue with depth, I can fit the KS or SP speaker, no problem..

What I am really wanting to know, will I be better with the more expensive SP over the KS?? SP has a 2ohm and KS 4 ohm

PS about 200.00 and KS 80.00
