Default Best Speakers for a Center Console?

What have others had luck with?

Do I need to spend the money on JL Audio--is it worth it?

Infinity, Clarion, Pioneer, Bose, West MArine.

Any help appreciated!

easiest and best are two diff things...but not much....on the sides of the console firing against th walls is easy and neat...and works very well...mounted in the sides of the boat firing at you hips is optimum but a bit more work...
easy...


best:

Up in the gunnels in the bow blasting back, especially good when you are running.

I just replaced 2 speakers with the Infinity 602m's and they sound great.

I have 2 more that I am going to add to this system when I figure out where to mount them.

I also added a Clarion 475 also so that may be why the speakers sound so good but for all the research and I did and threads on THT which were VERY helpfull

SORRY, I was thinking about that this weekend.

Admiral had her camera on the water but left the battery on kitchen counter charging and one thing I found out you can not operate a camera without a battery.

I will put that on my list when I get home from the office today as long as it is not raining, boat will be in my driveway quite a bit now so I can get some pics for you
