Speaker system choice, kuryakyn, rumble raod or cycle sound ?
Hi guys, I am in the market to get a set of amplified speakers, just looking for something with 3.5mm to plug-in.
I found some good selection but before i buy it, i want to ask you guys see if anyone used them and how they like it. i know how to install any of them so im just asking for the used experience.
all of them from phat
#1 choice: Kuryakyn sound of chrome 3" speakers 2nd generation $339.95
stated as true 50w each speaker( smallest of all three)
nice touch with volume control on main speaker
volume control also act as on/off switch
#2 choice: Cycle Sounds Series 2 Ultra 2.5" SoundSystems $344.95
stated as 75 watts per speaker handling
smallest of all three so doesn't look bulky
great looking too
do not have built-in amp, so have to find a place for it
no switch on/off, no volume control
#3 choice: Rumble Road Ultra Amplified 4" Speakers chrome-191 $317.95
approximately 70W continuous; 100W peak; into 4 OHM at 13.6 VDC with high-gain input( most detail info of speakers)
largest speakers of all three and bulky
highest out put of all three
does not have power switch
come with little cheapy in-line controller to 3.5mm
no on/off switch
that's pretty much all i know for now.
for me i think kuryakyn are the best looking speaker, also mounting hardware.
a big plus with volume control and also act as on/off switch.
I mostly go with kuryakyn. but they are out of stock now from phat.
I was looking at leatherup.com and they are cheaper, but i found a lot of bad reviews from them not shipping on time and shipped wrong product.
they are also hard to deal with credit card and customer service.
so I'm not too comfortable order from them after my experience with shark audio from NY.
I read some reviews that saying kuryakyn speaker looks good but doesn't sound as good as the look, for sound, rumble road is the best out of the reviews i found...but they are big.
cycle sound's speaker looks pretty nice and basically fits anywhere, but i have to get a volume controller and on/off switch, that's not fun and also extra money right there, and i have to find a place to mount the amp which i really don't want to. but at the end, they are small and i like how it fits with the bike.
rumble road i would say the most powerful out of all three and longest in industry for motorcycle speaker, biggest speakers and highest output wattage, come with a little cheappy controller that i think may not last for too long. no on/off switch so i have to buy one. good thing it mounts low profile and built-in amp.
what do you guys think ? maybe I'm not seeing what you are seeing ?
maybe I'm wrong about something ?
It is not cheap and i have talked to my wife for like an hour for her to let me buy it and she can also enjoy it.
we both wear open face helmet so it should all sound good to us.
mostly 90% local or beach ride, 10% of freeway ride.
help me decide if I'm wrong with the product.
THANKS GUYS !!!!

Check out shark audio. I jus put a set on my brothers shadow and they sound, and look great. Thinking go getting myself a set. You can pick them on Amazon or EBay for about $100.00
