Even the most efficient amp won't put out the full rated output continuously.
If you going to use an amp then yeah you can spend some big bucks on fancy speakers.

The thing about Polk is they have a high sensitivity making them a very good swap in upgrade for a system without an amp.

I personally see no need for an amp in my setup. I have it running I think 1/4 volume and it's loud and clear. Mileage may vary I suppose depending on your helmet, pipes, any hearing loss, etc.
I'm past the point of fighting pipes for my tunes as I have done on my other bike.

That witch doctor site has some high end speakers that might be what you looking for. They should at least fit the fairing. Shop around because they tend to run high on prices but the part numbers are there.

i had them hooked up without an amp and couldnt tell a big diff from them and the stock kicker up grades. i guess i didnt want to chance blowing the speakers or killing the amp. i am trying to learn some stuff.

I doubt they would be better than the kicker speakers. 100% better than stock cheapo speakers but kicker is already a step up so that isn't really an upgrade imo.

There is a post somewhere on this site where someone (can’t remember where) mentioned a set of speakers but I can’t recall the brand. They were about $200 a pair and the guy swore by them...

They look like a great pair of speakers.
