Its winter...let's talk marine audio. What's everyone's preference on marine speakers? JL is always excellent quality. Wetsounds? Bluave? Infinity kappa? The Fusion's are getting great reviews.

Ive had JL in the past and now Wetsounds. Both are a quality speaker.

My DC Golds are 10 years old and still sound the same as the day they were installed. They have gone up in price significantly.

Focal or Bluave, Both excellent, both a little pricey, but worth every penny or should I say $$

I run The Bluave subs that are in there own box and use Wet Sounds mids and highs because they are a little louder than the bluave's in the mids and highs. Also I run the Wet Sounds amps for all of my speakers, along with the Wet sounds head unit and wireless remote head unit. I also added one more pair of Revo 8's that weren't in this picture when it was taken

This summer I installed Rockford Fosgates new full range 8" marine speakers and 12" sub. Their full range speakers to compete with JL's 7.7's and 8.8's.
I'm quite impressed with them. I also added Power 6.5's up in the cabin. We can grab some beers and go boating up at Fort North and listen to them

I am a Memphis dealer so I use all their stuff....are they the best...no...are they better than some...yes...at the price point I get them at they are almost impossible to beat IMO

Out of curiosity I priced out some wet sounds stuff a little while back and there is no way in hell I would pay that much for their stuff....it is very high quality stuff don't get me wrong but WOW they are expensive.

The high end m6 JL's and the Wet Sounds seem to be on par with each other. I assume that the Bluave is priced about the same. I had Memphis in my last boat and it was exceptional for the money.

The Wet Sounds are top notch quality and if you buy from actual dealer instead of ebay,etc they are great on warranty claims. I'm sure you know this from being a Memphis audio dealer. Also my installer sells at cost, so that helps quite a bit on pricing.
