I have not heard anything about the 8 inch ,they just came out ,My distributor doesent even have them yet.

If got room for the Babbs there about the same price as the 8 inch Pioneers.The hole for the Babb 10 inch is a lot smaller than a 10 inch but still has a 10 cone surface area.

Stay away from infinity 6x9 marine speakers.

They do not like water at all. So marine speakers are they not!

I had 3 pairs in my boat last summer. They all start to make a ugly sound due to the glue that hold the basselement dissolve when the element gets wet.

I have got new from the store I bougth them from every time. But it is very irritating.

The Babb are good speakers,but they take some decent power to get good sound out of them. If your not going to use an amp, I would use something else. Depending on what you want to spend... Bazooka makes marine speakers... I have had good luck with them. They are mid range priced.

Give me a holler on the 6.5 MBQ's.
I bought some Boss speakers cause they were cheap and I'm not all that impressed with em.
Been considering the MBQ's. Shoot me a price if they're not already spoken for (which ones are they? the NKA116?)

I just installed 4 JL AUDIO 6x9 3-way speakers in my dads sea ray coustic 240 and a pioneer premier deh-900p ?head unit (I think thats the model number) those speakers kick azz. speakers and amp were about $500 very loud and still some good bass. we were at put in bay and a guy in a newer sea ray was mad at us because we were drowning out his BOSE system.
