The company that started the motorcycle audio upgrade market is back with its latest speakers – the new ARC Audio MOTO CX6. This set of 6.5-inch speakers is explicitly designed as an upgrade to the fairing or lower speakers on your Harley-Davidson Road Glide, Street Glide or Electra Glide motorcycle. Developed to provide an excellent balance of efficiency and midbass performance, these sound great while playing loud!
ARC Audio MOTO CX6
The new MOTO CX6 speakers are based around a four-spoke stamped steel frame that will bolt right into the fairing location on your bike. ARC Audio includes a thick gasket to ensure that these speakers seal perfectly when installed. In addition, the basket features eight large vents under the spider mounting plateau to allow air to flow around the voice coil. These vents, along with the large 1.25-inch fiberglass voice coil former, are part of why these speakers can handle a much as 110 watts of power.
The woofers are created from carbon-doped polypropylene and feature an inverted dust cap covering the driver’s center. An inverted rubber surround provides compliance and damping at the outer edge. The woofer features a ceramic magnet, but the ARC Audio speaker design team has added a high-strength neodymium magnet slug on the top of the T-yoke to increase efficiency.
The polyetherimide and Norseal PVC mesh 1-inch tweeters are suspended above the woofer by a three-spoke steel bridge. Not using a post that extends up through the center of the woofer increases the effective cone area and speakers’ efficiency.
Most importantly of all, the new CX6 speakers have been designed to offer smooth midrange with detailed highs that sound great at cruising speeds on the freeway. In terms of midbass, the high-excursion woofer design produces significantly more midbass than typical motorcycle speakers, so your music sounds warmer and more realistic.
