Default HotVic Saddlebag Speakers

I was seeing if anyone has these yet and their experience with them. They are pricey, but look like a quality piece. Also curious if anyone has ran them with an amp since they don't require one (plug and play). I don't know much about speakers so I'll ask, how should these sound by just plug and play setup or should they be ran to with amp? Thanks.-Chris

No, HotVic has their own. Their lids include a ported enclosure, come with Polk 6.5's, are prewired, and are painted to match factory colors. The HMD's are just a primered fiberglass lid.

Check out the 2nd picture to see the most obvious difference between the two:

Thats correct. Sorry about the confusion. The HotVic kit is complete plug and play, painted, and ready for install. Wondering if anyone has them yet and their thoughts? And sound question, if you decided to run it with or without and amp? Should it still sound good without an amp? Thanks!

Also how are the speakers angled? Are they tilted away from the bike, towards, or just straight up? I assume they are fiberglass.

At that price I may buy a set.

The angle looks as though it angles out just a tad....I do like the look especially if i painted the grills black to match bike and blend in better
