    Best 5.25 coax for motorcycle fairing

    Looking for the best 5.25" coax for a motorcycle fairing. Keep in mind I'm not looking for sound quality that you'd expect in a vehicle, but I don't want em to sound like @$$hole either. Looking for some speakers that carry sound far, around 75-100w rms for a pair. Gonna run 4 in the front fairing.

    Re: Best 5.25 coax for motorcycle fairing

    Eh, not terribly, but if I do get caught out in the rain I'd like em not to get f*cked up. I'm not a hardcore ride through everything guy, but I do ride a lot and am subject to getting wet at times. I was reading about the Polk db's being used in marine applications. Thoughts?

    I know how to find them, I'm inquiring about the proper speakers for my application (not necessarily limited to Polks).

    Re: Best 5.25 coax for motorcycle fairing

    Price... Trying to keep it under 100/set if I can. I've got extended hard bags/extended rear fender to buy, paint, etc. Trying to upgrade the sound in my fairing without breaking the bank and still sound good. Also, anyone know any amps with a small footprint that puts out 100-120wrmsx2@2ohm that would be decent mounting in the fairing?

    Re: Best 5.25 coax for motorcycle fairing

    I've heard HogTunes speakers and they are surprisingly good, made specifically for motorcycles, for specific models. Perfect fit, look, and install. I haven't found a aftermarket solution yet that compares.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    Re: Best 5.25 coax for motorcycle fairing

    OP, youre an idiot. Buy some headphones ratard. No one wants to listen to your crap music besides you. I would make fun of you so much if you rolled up to a meet with speakers on your bike blaring Rick Ross. Invest in some etymotic headphones and call it a day. Seriously, dont do this.

    I wear my etymotic er-6i headphones while I ride. They're noise cancelling so I usually only wear both on long rides but with one in it helps and I dont have to turn my iphone up all the way since it cancels out all other noise in that ear.



    Don't listen to me.

    ^what he said.
    Er-6i's are awesome, but I don't think that they make them anymore. Etymotic has plenty of models to chose from though. Hearing protection plus amazing SQ (they really do sound great), and you can still hear them clearly at highway speeds. And they don't make you look like a tool.

    Oh and isn't there a law against blaring music? Yea I think there is. And in order to hear it while riding you would have to be doing just that.

    To be fair, there's also a law against wearing headphones while driving, atleast in Washington. (they're just earplugs officer)
