Lol, you know we bust ***** with the best of them.

I voted for the Polks because I think they're the best performance for the price.

pretty much decided on the BRT rockford amp..either the 4 channel or if i can hold out the new 2 channel that comes out next month

source is a new jvc deck with front and rear usb doing a flush mount usb input in my glove box so my iphone can sit in there and charge and i can run my music off of it..

front usb is a 16 gig micro usb stick that looks like a bluetooth chip with music on it..

Are we limited to those choices???? Of those choices probably the Hertz although I don't know if their impedance will work with the RF amp.. Polk MM651's aren't bad. Focal CVX's aren't bad, a little bright sounding for my taste but a solid speaker for the money.

There are some others I would check out...

Hybrid Audio Technology Imagine I61-2
Rainbow SL 165 NG
JL Audio C5-650X
Image Dynamics XS065


Also note Arc Audio has the new moto series speakers out, I can hook you up with a guy that'll get you a set for $200... They are designed for the Harley fairing. I haven't heard them yet but I am buying two pairs to try them out in my bike's fairing / lowers pretty soon...
