Default Box stereo speakers

Any recommendations out there for a very good box speaker? Don't know if I have any back space room for a regular speaker to install.

Is there anything else besides polyplanar? I've had these before but just wondering if there was anything else really good or better. I would love to put in a pair of JL's 6.5's but I don't think I have enough back space to mount these flush mount speakers.

That might be a possibility of making my own box. The ready made one looks great but $2500 for a pair is a little too steep for my budget.

If you would consider going Bluetooth then take a look at these.

You are right except since they are not wired I simply remove them from my overhead electronics box and leave them in my car. Depends on the application and how hardcore you want your tunes. I find that these speakers paired with my iPod provides all the music I need.

Glen please give me your expert opinion on the polyplanar speakers. The area I boat gets quite rough and we take on lots of saltwater over the boat so need to be a pretty good set of speakers that can hold up to the environment.

Most of what poly makes is crap but their box speakers are a good value. Played with a pair of MA7500 box speakers for sand bar work and I liked them. Grilles rust long term but speakers are robust

Thinking about putting the poly box speakers outside of the cab and making a box for the jl's for the inside of the cab.

PP went with a soild plastic bracket & switched over to aluminium painted grill on the MA9060's. So rust shouldn't be an issue now. Funny...This is a 2-way speaker yet their own website doesn't even mention it. Go figure.
