Check out the 6.5's from Kicker. They have a marine series of speakers which I got in my boat and they not only crank, but are clear also. Dont remember the price off hand, got them installed last year. Just call around some of the local audio shops to get prices.

When I set up my Sonic I wanted to go with the best then I found the MTX deal and went with it. I'm glad I did because the way mine is set up it has 2200 watts and kills both battery's in about 1 1/2 cd's. So I have to run the gen. if I'm going to turn it up so the little noise I get from the gen would still be there even if I had the best speaker.

Plus with all the time I spend sitting on a DYNO doing runs my hearing aint what it used to be so I don't need the best. And it would only be the best for about a week.

Rockford fosgate has a new marine line / I would look in to that. Buy the way Rockford owns M.B. quart. Look at there marine radios and you will see.

You may need to check what kind of amperage your pulling with those amps. I had 2800 watts in my last boat and it would last a good 6 hours at full volume on two battery's. MTX amps are not known for being very efficient.

I sell and stock the new MBQuart marine radio with 30 second anti skip memory, low battery shutdown, and many other marine related advantages including wired remote option. I also stock their MBQuart marine speakers, BABB speakers, and many others.

Feel free to call me at 813-882-8477 for assistance in making the right choice.

Infinity Kappas 6.5 inch with separate tweeters. Have 6 in my arch. They are not marine and are holdingup well. I'm not sure you can see them well in this pic.
