Default marine speakers

I am wanting to install a couple of 6.5 speakers in my arch. I am looking at kenwood, clarion or memphis. If you have any knowledge about any of these or would recommend anything else.

MB quart make's a real nice 6.5 but they are pricey. I think the top ones are 500 a pair.

How deep is the arch? that will be the biggest problem with how good of a speaker you can put in, unless you want to use spacers.

Lapse of reason is right most of the time you have to have a spacer as there is not enough mounting depth for the speaker.

Babb does not make a 6.5" speaker. I wish they would. Every time I place a order I ask them to do that. Maybe someday they will. So he is back to clarion, Mb quart and all of the others that are mentioned.

I have 6 of the MTX pro series 6.5's (cockpit) and 4 reg MTX 6.5 (cabin) in my Sonic, they retailed for 270 a pair I got them on close out for 80 a pair. I looked at a lot of speakers and could not pass up the deal. I also got 2 MTX amps 1 1200 watt 5 ch. and 1 1000 watt sub amp. I was never a fan of the MTX stuff back in the 80's and 90's in my cars but I picked up about 3k retail for 800 on close out and it sounds great and has for 2 1/2 years.

I use MTX amps they have a good warranty and sound good enough for boats.
