Does anyone know if the 2012 audio speakers are the same as earlier models '06 up to '10? Just wondering if Honda changed the speakers on the 2012 models! My 2012 audio sounds pretty good, but just wondering also if there might be a better alternative. I replaced my '08 speakers with J&M's and the sound was better!

Have no details, but I do believe the speakers were upgraded along with the audio system. I haven't used the headsets in my helmet since riding my 2012, the sound system is awesome!:thumbup:

Personally, I wouldn't change the speakers unless you had some trouble.

I think they work/sound great.

I haven't found a 2012 parts site yet, but I suspect that the actual speakers are the same as the '06 to '10 models. The only thing that has changed is the way the audio unit handles the speakers on the '12 models, i.e., SRS vs AMB.

Rode a 12 Friday... speakers seems to distort way before my 07's.

As a pro DJ by trade sound is something I am pretty in tune with. Get it, in tune. :wrong:

I thought the same thing! I had put in the J&M's on my '08 and they seemed to sound better that the ones on my 2012 the best I can remember! I could turn up the volume more with the J&M's over the 2012's before distortion came in to play!!!
