Beowulf

The Beowulf Stubby works for me. It's been on my F798 since 2011 and sounds better every year. Add to that that it is very small, light, and inexpensive. I have received compliments over the...

I just replaced mine for the first time at 18,300 miles. Did it more for good measure as I wasn't having any problems and don't notice any difference with the new ones in. I stayed with stock.
