Default Which Clarion speakers?

Should I go with the
CMCX7.1 160 Watt Marine 7" 2-Way Speakers or the
CM1625 6-½ Coaxial Marine Speakers?

If I have room for the 7" speakers should I go with them? What does the extra 1/2" give me? Price differnce is $10 so that's not an issue. Thanks!

NONE! Seriously, I have owned at least 6 sets of clarion speakers as they come on most new boats (3 new boats for me in 7 years) - they do not last and will go in as little as 6 months, AT NORMAL VOLUME.... try these instead:

1st Choice: JL Audio Coaxial - best speaker out there right now
2nd Choice: Infinity Coaxial
3rd Choice - Poly Planar

but get the JL's and do a search here for more opionons...

Just replaced my Clarions with JL's. I gotta agree with Glen. Contact Mike at SWFL and he will hook you up.

I would scrap clarion all together...they dont last...trust me. I used to have babb speakers (6 years on a saltwater boat) and when they needed to be replaced I found out babb went out of biz. A company called DC Gold bought the patents and are making the old babb speakers...they are better than my original babbs and are completly submergable, not just waterproof. Good luck!

If you're looking to stay in the same price range as the Clarion, but get a speaker just as good as the JL (or better depending on who you talk to) look at Polk. You can get good deals on Polks from authorized retailers online well below list price with full warranty and I can assure you they're just as good as the JLs.
