Default Need some bass from bags. 8ís or 10ís? Brands?

Would like to add some jefe rings either 8ís or 10ís. Trying to get an idea of speakers to use. I see the yellow basket ground zeros are popular. What about beyma or prv? Thanks

What frequencies are you trying to target that will complament the rest of your system?
How much power do you have available to push the 8s or 10s.

Are you looking for punchy midbass or some rattle finding lower freq bass?

What is in the rest of your system??

I'm running the GZCK's yellow basket 8's and they fit in with my system (not running horns and have 6,5;s in fairing, lowers and TP pods & 6x9 lids) the balance in sound is just right IMHO and 10's would have over powered my modest setup...plus I wanted to save some bag space! Depends on your end game as far as 8's or 10's go...good luck with you quest!

Defienety looking for more of a punchy midbass. Not necessarily subwoofer bass as Iíd like hear it when riding above 40 mph. Iíll use an amp based on power requirements of the speaker.

Speaker recommendation would depend on the rest of your system and speaker location

I am running a pair of PRV 6MR500-4's in a set of lowers, a pair of Cadence XPro69's in my lids with 150w going to each speaker. I added a set of PRV 8MB450's in the rear of my bags to start with and fed them 260w each. I got a nice midbass punch to them, but wanted more. So I decided on giving the GZ Yellow Baskets a shot since they were available in 4ohm vs the PRV 8MBB600ft's that only come in 8ohm. I am really glad I did ..... I can feel the bass hits when I am running down the road at 60mph when my volume is cranked to about 2/3rds max. I am running this setup on a 2009 RK. I also have a RF DSR1 for tuning .... which I would highly recommend a DSP unit if you don't already have one ..... makes tuning the system to sound good SO MUCH EASIER!!!!

Are you putting these in lids or inside the bags? Cause I personally don't think you are gonna necessarily "hear" them when riding above 40mph with them inside the bag facing the rim. That is how I have my GZ's placed and I certainly "feel" them, but I don't think I really "hear" them. If you're going lid route, then yeah ..... you're gonna hear those pretty well.

Definetly facing the rim as I didnít really want to do lids. Iíll probably go with the GZ yellow basket 10ís then and give them plenty of power!
