Eric - Good speaking with you today. As I mentioned on the phone, it's not all about the brand. My take is both Exile and WS make great gear. We do a little better warranty than they, but then again they've been doing it longer than us. Don't think you can go wrong either route. If you choose the Exile route, we'll design your equipment selection so it's tailored to YOUR riding style and with your future stereo needs in mind.
But if you do come down the Exile path, I'll wanna hear it with my own ears next time I'm in town!
Pertaining to the comments made by CAB11367 and LSVBOOMBOX, with the new Wetsounds REV speakers you can have both swivel and quick release. Release one locking bolt only and you don't have to remove the speaker to rotate it. So Exile does not hold that lone distinction anymore. Wetsounds gives you the option now of both fixed or swivel/quick-release collars where all wiring is concealed within the collar. And Wetsounds provides the ability to also run concealed LED light wires including 4-conductors for RGB lights. All that changed some months ago.
Wetsounds has two new REV models including a Rev8 8-inch HLCD and the Rev10 10-inch HLCD. These are much smoother speakers that have the power to project at wake range but are also very pleasing to listen to at near proximity...yes, from one speaker that does both jobs very well. You should read the Wetsounds REV reviews on Wakeworld. And you should definitely audition the new REVs.
Exile makes a great product also, particularly the new XM9 8-inch HLCD.
Thanks for all the feedback. I have some thinking to do.
another vote for Exile... Brian was great in helping me out and i've got 4 sxt65's on the tower and sx65's in cabin. love the sound!!
Morgan - aint this your boat all blinged out?
And I came across this video of your secret shopping on a boat two doors down. (he's the guy all tatted)
Where are all the pictures from Lake Sammamish Brian?

Two of them riding at 80 feet are incredibly nice, they rock the water and will make your ears bleed..... incredible speaker.
Have not heard the Exiles, but from the posts on here they seem to be popular.
I can say the Rev10s sound amazing. I was in Earmark last friday and listened to the Rev8s and Rev10s and you wouldnt believe the SQ of the Rev series. I went in to listen to the Kicker 6500.2 setup that Earmark has setup in their showroom. The Kickers sounded good, but when they turned on the Rev8s and Rev10s I was completely blown away by the midbass and the clarity of the HLCDs. I made up my mind and will be getting a set of the Rev10s. If anybody is on the fence about what type of tower speakers to get and you live in the DFW area, take a trip to Earmark in Lewisville and listen to the setup.
