    Default Tower speaker setup?

    Anyone running the The KICKERŪ KM6500.2 HLCD Tower Component System would like some feedback on how these compare to wetsounds or Exiles? Liquid Audio has a nice 4 pod setup for sale on ebay that looks good and I would like to have a 4 pod setup without breaking the bank.

    A friend of mine has those on his boat. They can be heard nicely at 70ft. For my thoughts they are a little too bright when you sit in his boat but as long as you have a tower volume control i think you will be happy with the purchase.

    I don't think i would compare them to WS or Exile mainly because you add your own can, or pod for them. Depending on the type and how you do it can change there sound.

    WS and Exile both come in pre-designed enclosures.

    While i am one of Exiles biggest supporters, i don't think the SXTQ line is going to work for this situation. A single pair wont be herd at wake board distance like a true HLCD would. The XM7 would be a better comparison for this.

    I'm not going to compare speaker brands though, not my forte

    Trever, I have the Kicker tower speakers on my 07. They are good but I have never heard the exile or others so I have nothing to compare them to. I found a company that does refurbished Kickers for cheap so thats why I bought them. This year I am adding a separate amp for just the tower with a volume control. Right now they are on the same amp as the inside so its not the best. I will say that they are 10 times better then just regular marine grade speakers.

    One of my friend ordered Kicker 11KM6500 Kicker speakers. Those are not Tower speakers but cabin speakers. I'm not sure what did he compare with but he owns the home theater business. I'm sure those should sounds good. I'll be going to his place within few days to install LED rings on those dang thing for FREE since he does home theater programming FREE for me.. HAHAHA

    can't wait to hear those and put against my Exile SX65M cabin speakers..
