Default Alpine or Fusion Speakers

I went with a Alpine Type-S 6.5", one speaker went out. Lasted maybe lil over a year, than went with a Alpine Type-R 7". Night and day difference. Well one speaker went out maybe lasted 6-8 months.
Anyone listen to a type-r to a fusion speaker, comparison?
Don't have the $ for wetsounds/jl. So that is out the question.
Amazon has the fusions 7" for about $100. Right in the price range for me. Nothing fancy.

I have 6 Fusion speakers and love them, especially since they were made for boating. I've had mine on the boat (in a salt environment) for over a year and a half without any issues. Awesome warranty too. I do know this, Sony makes complete and utter junk for marine speakers, mine only lasted 12 months before they completely disintegrated!

JL Audio. Nothing compares aside from Wetsounds for tower speakers. For cockpit speakers, JL is by far the best available.

Save up for JL. You won't have to replace them. Going on 6 years on one of my JL systems in a salt water boat and all original equipment.
