Nolan N104 speakers

I have the Scala G4 and the speakers are pretty cheap sounding. After emailing J&M and getting no help regarding upgrading to their speakers, I'm looking at the Tork Xpro speakers.

anyone have experience with these?

Re: Nolan N104 speakers

My G4 speakers sound pretty darn good. Have to have them right up against my ears, though. I'd be interested in hearing how a speaker upgrade sounds in comparison.

Here's a link to a review on the Tork Xpro speakers: http://www.webbikeworld.com/r4/tork-speaker-review/

2013 BMW K1600GLT (I love this bike!)...
2005 BMW K1200LT, a/k/a "Fat Bottomed Girl" (traded for 2013 K1600GLT)...
1998 Honda VFR800, the finest sport/tourer ever created...
1978 Yamaha DT400E, because I just can't leave the sound of a two-stroke behind...

Re: Nolan N104 speakers

I bought the Xpro speakers and find they are quite good. I couldnt find earphones that i liked for use in helmet, especially for hours at a time. Xpro's have resolved my helmet wind noise to a satisfactory degree. Now the real secret to the helmet speaker issue was connecting them to the rear speaker wires from BMW audio. Factory system has the power to drive the headphone speakers. I seriously doubt Sena, Cardo or other intercom can deliver enough sound to overcome wind/road noise. YMMV.

One of these days i'll tackle the bluetooth intercom project but for now i'm just a riding fool happily listening to his tunes. Thats me stopped at traffic light, head bobbin and boots tapping til the light turns green.
