Need some stereo advise from the experts

Recommended Posts

wheelman

My new boat came with 6 Roswell ri series cabin speakers, I really wanted the 8" but could only get them with ordering the tower speakers which I did not want. My stereo is going to consist of 3 12" subs, 4 exile surf 9's and the 6 6.5" cabins. Question is is it worth if for me to still switch out my cabins to a 8" speaker? Was thinking of going to the kicker km8's. Will be powering the inboards with 100w each. How much more quality or volume  am I going to get?

Yes, there is a noticeable difference between a 6.5" and 8" speaker, with even making an upgrade in amp wattage output. With two 12" woofers, the added output of a speaker upgrade. With the KM8, you also get the added benefits of included RGB LEDs and two grill color options to choose from.

I was fortunate enough to listen to the R1 speakers from Roswell when they launched them.  I am on my second boat with R1 6.5s and I am really happy with them.  The 8s are INSANELY good, and had other brands on hand for comparison.  Really helps with the mid-low handoff.  I would put the 8s in my Axis if they fit without significantly modifying the interior, but i think I'm limited to the 6.5s

 

What boat did you get that came with the R1s?
