    Default Budget Audio Upgrade

    For others that may be looking at a budget upgrade...boat came with the stock 6 speaker MB Quart set up, no tower speakers and I was ready to upgrade to something I can hear while surfing and swimming with a little bass. I know I spent 5x,xxx on a boat, why cheap out on audio. Its a family boat and my kids are very young, I only wakeboard 15 minutes a week, so it is mainly a surf and swim boat. This set up should be perfect for me.

    4 Tower Cans Aluminum Black Powder Coated - 139.98
    4 Kicker 6200 - 144.95
    1 Kicker ZXM700.5(refurb) - 297.50
    1 Kicker SKM10 - 160.00
    1 amp install kit - 27.95


    Total $770.38

    When you get this system set up i'd be curious on your take of the SKM10 sub in particular.I've been contemplating changes ,but have delayed twice,building/upgrading my system. I had that sub in particular in mind Due mostly to the simplicity of the Box,Sub combo ,but have not had a chance to see/hear this product. Its still in the plans ,probably Next year.

    I'm not into serious pounding ,just looking for overall sound quality as tunes usually are for floating /rest time between Ski sets.

    Nothing at all wrong with your choice of equipment. Im guessing you have an amp to drive the tower speakers?

    Mikey,
    The Kicker KM10 is a very nice woofer. Very musical and has some good bump with 200-250 watts rms to it. If the SMK10 doesn't fit your intended location, then go with the KM10 woofer and build a custom enclosure to fit the space.

    Just got back from the first test run, I am actually fairly impressed with the sub. It hits harder than I thought it would, I couldn't be happier for the price.

    Yes the zxm700.5 above is a kicker 5 channel amp to drive the tower speakers and sub.
