My past system stock Malibu Speakers in my 2014 23 LSV but had the XM9 tower and Exile sub... Exile amp & EQ. I have a 2018 24 MXZ with basic interior speaker package and primarily a surfing family. Love the sound the of Exile system but have always been a big fan of JL Audio. Any feedback from folks on sound (EXILE SXT9Q versus JL Audio M880-ETX). Also on the JL what are the options for mounting? Really appreciate feedback. Also thoughts on one amp brand powering a different speaker? I am not a Wet Sounds fan, FYI. Thanks
Amps and speaker do not care. Anyone that tells you that their amps are built specifically to power their speakers or their speakers will only sound good when driven off their amps, is feeding you a cart full of bull droppings. Yes, there are difference in sound quality between brands, but there is absolutely no conflicts between mixing speaker and amp brands. Neither knows the other. The amp "sees" a speaker load, and the speaker reproduces the voltage signal it receives.
Out of those two, I feel the larger 1.25" tweeter is a little to dominate for me.
