Looking for an "inexpensive" set of tower speakers and amp to drive them.
Current system in my pro air is:
JL900/5
Alpine sps-600 x4
JL 10w3

Id like to add a couple tower speakers and probably an amp to push them. We will probably upgrade boats next year or the following so I don't want to spend a fortune. Doable under $1000?

Wake range HLCD or near filed SQ coaxial?

Don't really care to hear it wakeboarding. Mostly for the wife and friends floating around. Wouldn't hurt to hear it surfing not that we surf all that often (or well) in a direct drive pro air.

From the product listed you already have. I would stay with that caliber and do a pair of WetSounds Icon8 or the JL 8's in their cans. 6.5" will be a bit cheaper BUT I would still do the 8's...

Kicker KM8, KMTES8 pods and KXM400.4

or

KMT67 and KXM400.2

Both easily under a $1000. Solid setups. Marine built rather than car door speakers cobbled into cheap aluminum pods.

I have a set of DB Drive APT6.0pro on my tower. They are the least expensive Horn Loaded Compression Driver speakers that I found. I wanted a budget stereo and I am very happy with them. I have a pp p900.4 bridged to the two speakers and you can hear them from over 100 yards away.. You can find the 6.5 inch speakers online for around $200 and the 8 inch for $275. My stereo is clear and loud for under $500.

Buy my Kicker 6500.2 6 pack, and then spend $125 and get a PPI P600.2 amp to power it. You'll be in it to win it for WELL under your budget. They crank great for a midpriced option at both surf and wakeboard.

Good Suggestions alll.

I like the Kicker KMT67s and the DB stuff has me curious because it's cheap and I'm cheap.

I had the KMT67 and they worked great. Nothing wrong with them at all. I sold them and bought two pair of KM8's in the KMTES Pods that chpthril also mentioned.

I mainly went the KM8's for the LEDs and I like the look of 4 separate pods. They sound better to me but it could all be in my head. chpthril likely has a more informed opinion on which one should sound better between the two (if at all).
