I think that with any of the above brands your 1k budget will get blown away in no time. Do you want the cans to swivel or just shoot strait back?
    I can go up to 1000$ but ill prefer from 500-800 for everything

    I want 1 amp 2 cans

    They don't need to swivel shooting straight back is perfect

    This is my first tower kit so I don't have any clue right now

    Thank you

    I missed enash deal on kicker amp and wetsounds cans

    Based on what you've said so far I'd say save the cash and go 650 over the icon 8s. Give Brian at Exile a shout too and see if he has any of the SXTs with fixed clamps for less cash.

    I have fixed clamps and have no complaints. The swivels make it nice for removal if that is important to you.

    Not important at all

    And is wiring the tower a pain in the a**?

    Would you use this kit using a second battery or only the boat one I'm good?

    You have to drill a few holes in the tower and fish the wires through. It's not too bad of a project.

    I would think there is going to be some musicality (if thats the right word) difference when you go from a 6.5" speaker to an 8" speaker. The Icons might be out of the budget after you add the amp but maybe not. The other two are smaller speakers.

    I'd be interested to hear from someone who has heard the JL 7.7's you mentioned. That's a larger speaker at a pretty good price. Also consider whether or not you are going to want to upgrade to additional speakers in the next couple years, if so, consider getting some you would like to have 4 of so you can keep these.

    I don't mind my speakers not swiveling.

    The JL sound great at surf distance and ok at wake distance. heard then on an x45 up close and personal.
    Try exile as brainrinse states surf speakers and harpoon.

    Hate to say it but when i was on a budget in the old boat krypt audio fit the bill for the budget. JL amp and krypt 6.5 hlcd pods ebay

    I know OP "best quality" so krypt would be a notch down

    On my old boat we had the Kicker KMT6s. They sounded good at surf length...couldn't really hear them well at wakeboard length though.
