Lets put this in perspective, you are in a 200K??? boat you don't need speakers you need a F$%^ing system. I suggest MBquart mids and highs, JL audio subs, PPI amps, Claron or Sony head unit. Suck it up and have a custom shop design it for you or maybe Audiofn and Forest will chime in to help.

Hate to steal a post, but has anybody used the new 8" Bazooka full range marine speaker? Im thinking of using 4 pairs of those in leu of a typical high, mid, sub set up.

By the way these make a 6 and a half too.

Try the new JL Audio marine speakers. They sound great and don't require a lot of power. The grills are all plastic, so they wont rust. They sound better than the MB Quarts. I have had both.

The Infinity Kappa Marine 6.5s sound good. I have a pair. More bass than I ever expected (I didn't care because I run a sub) so I run them full range instead of cutting off the low end. They aren't the only speakers in the cockpit, but they do a heck of a job. I was amazed. Wanted fair. (just wanted something water resistant, because they are in the back seat.) But they're great .

I paid about 150. But they are on sale.
99 bucks from Crutchfield.

Spend more if you want.

I have their eight inch sub. Dual voice coil.
I am more than satisfied with it.

Haven't tried the full range.
But...
I would think that you could get just as loud with less power need if you do a sub and some smaller drivers, (the "typical" you describe).

4 pairs of those full ranges are gonna need a bunch of juice.
