What are you looking for, performance?, I put 3 sets of seperates and 3 12" subs all JL audio, ppi amps, and 4 2 way marine(alpine) down below, this system rocks and is super clean whether its jazz or some serious rock.

Depending on what you want out of your system. I have sold Babbs for over 18 years. They are a great speaker. I do not like the 10 though it is a full range speaker and not a sub. I can sell them cheaper than the online store.

I am looking for some crisp sound while I'm in the water next to the boat. Some good bass and as little distortion as possibe.

Victory32,
What vintage PPI amps are you running? I had a PPI bi-amp setup in my old Formula and loved it. Super clean and really good on the batteries. Was going to go with them again for my next system, but I have talked to a couple people that said they had some quality issues a couple years ago. I can't remember if it was last year, but one dealer told me they had a high warranty return rate on them. How are your's holding up?

I would echo Troutly, Audiofn really likes to put the Babb's in boats.

And Forest will set you up right!!
