Front and Rear speakers

Postby groundhog79 » Fri Jul 17, 2015 9:48 am



It's time to replace the current speakers on my trike, they sound horrible. Have been reading thru-out the site forums and researching on my own. What i have found is that most riders do not like the stock speakers because of life of the speakers. One topic mentioned and boasted on the Polk DB501 and DB401 marine speakers. Would like to know if any of you are using these or are there better speakers for near the same cost?

Those are the speakers that nearly everyone ends up using, and the feedback is almost universally positive on them.

Thanks ghostdawg1520. Received them about a week ago, installed sound good without an amp, but where did you pick up your diamond micro 4 amplifier?
