New for 2014
I hope the Admins do not see this as an advertisement, since Kicker has been and I think, still is the OEM in-boat and amp choice of Moomba. I just wanted to share the sneak of what Kicker has coming out new for 2014.
Ive heard a little through the grapevine as to what was revealed at IBEX and SEMA , but no hard details. Hope to see in person @ CES next month
KM8 with white grill and RGB LEDs
The entire marine speaker line is getting a new look, which includes RGB options.
It seems that there is a larger in-boat coaxial with a 1" tweeter, that might be phasing out the 6.5" components
Some options will include both a charcoal and white grill in the box.
The mid level KM6200 and the price-point KM6000 have both received some acoustic tweaks and will be released as a new model with all new sound and look.
Looks like there is a new 4" speaker geared towards the power sports. There is also a 4" tower pod for it as well.
Looks like the 2 ohm options have been expanded. This makes it easier to get the most out of your amp.
Cant wait for CES, to get more details and actual pics
New KM65 with charcoal grill and RGB LEDs
KMS67 Component HLCD to replace the KM6500.2
KMX line of full-range Class-D marine amps released this spring
New for 2014
Looks like Kicker really stepped up their marine game.
Do you know what's new in this new HLCD over the 6500.2?
The preliminary info I have is that the KMT60 gets a new grill and becomes the KMT674 and the KM6500.2 gets the new grill also and becomes the KMS674. So no real internal changes to the tower setups, other then a more competitive retail price on the pods.

RGB controller with RF remote
We were able to get the new marine gear in in time for the boat show, and all I can say about the new KM8 is WOW. We are running them bridged on the KXM400.4 for 200W to each. Running hi-pass and tuned to 50Hz and the mid-bass is impressive. They will easily consume the output of the 6.5" next to them.
I really want to get a set of these in some tower pods and see how they sound.
The tweeter mounted RGB LEDs are well done. They illuminate the cone nicely and the controller is small, simple to wire and easy to use. Its no bigger then my index finger.
