Just bought these exact speakers for my boat. Crutchfield has them for $50 a pair SHIPPED until like middle of september or whatever. I have pictures of these installed on my 05 if you want to see what it looks like. Do you still have the complete stock system installed? You can "aim" the little tweeters in the center, but its just a gimmick. All the cabin speakers are kind of a PITA because you have to take off those blue/white/gray arm rails to get at the screws that hold the stock speakers in.

Try looking at Visions as they HAD some that i believe they may have picked up in spring like a lot of us on here did. They had them at about 79.00 a pair i believe if they still do or see if one of our Moomba friends will help you out as Al Cab did for me and buy them ,have them sent to a US address then send by mail from them to you. Still much cheaper if you get the speakers at a decent price.

if your not in a hurry crutchfield seems to run them for $49 a pair several times throughout the year.

Just an FYI. This is what I think may be happening but its not confirmed. The Polk dB651 is discontinued but there is a fair amount of inventory in the pipeline currently. The direct replacement is in select retailers now. However, the new unit has a metal mesh grill. I see two concerns with this. Eventual rust in the marine environment. If a board or other object lighty bumps into the mesh grill it will be permanently dented and this is difficult to fully straighten out. The new and basic grill has lost the edgy look and cosmetic appeal of the dB651 IMO.
