There are a few nice options to replace the oem 5.25" fairing speakers. Kicker being just one such option. In the end though, you'll likely need more power (an amp) to drive them with a more powerful and cleaner amp. I went with the factory Extreme Audio fairing kit and like it, a lot. Though I did choose to replace the factory 'extreme' 5.25" fairing speakers with a pair of Kickers. I also added the Extreme Saddlebag audio system and find it to be fine. I only did this because the prices were 'blowout' at the time.
There's a page on Facebook dedicated to Victory aftermarket audio options. Are there better options than what Polaris put together for the Victory line? Yes sir, you bet. Is it worth the extra money, time and expense? Not for me it wasn't. My factory system works fine up to about 80mph before it tends to get lost. That's good enough for me. Many of the Victory owners on the Facebook page seem to compete with their audio systems at various events. So the factory set up, for them, would be a waste of time, money and effort. I believe Witchdoctors also has a set up available on their website. In the end, you can spend as much or as little as you want depending upon your needs, wants and desires. I've seen entire saddlebags and trunks filled with high end audio equipment and 'speakers-a-plenty' all over the bikes. Some bikes are show ponies and some are go ponies. Very few offer both.
All the best,

Who turns Victory into defeat? Polaris Industries, that's who.
