501 - I personally would not have tried to use the db651 as tower speakers but how do you think they would do as cabin speakers?

You will not be disappointed in the Polks in the cabin, they are one of the best you can get. They are clear and can handle the power.2007 Mobius LSV

sounds like there is a lot of stereo projects going on this winter.
can't wait to compare notes as seems that everyone is going just a little different route. will be interesting to see what positives/negatives come out of each install...'06 Supra Launch 20SSV-gone but never forgotten

The Polk DB651's as tower speakers are ok. I can hear them at 70 feet , but they aren't amazingly loud or anything. But with that said, they would probably be pretty good in the cabin now that I think about it because they do go quite loud for a 6.5" speaker. I have a lot of power running to them on the tower which helps too.
I honestly never thought of replacing the kicker speakers in the boat till this thread. I always thought they sounded pretty decent and from behind they look like they are built well. I think adding the sub will make the biggest difference.
For my sub I have a plan to put an illuminated toggle switch by the driver that connects to the remote turn on, on the amp. This way I can turn the sub on or off with the flick of a switch and no playing with the deck or remotes or anything.
Why does it have to be winter now?

you guys with the factory kicker speakers I guess are lucky. I have what I think was the upgraded sound system for supra in '06 and it's all kenwood. 6.5's are ok for what I would consider a "factory" speaker, but they still suck. kind of like the bose system in my wifes murano. it's ok for an upgraded "factory" system, but still not very high quality.
interestingly enough, the 6.5's are bottom of the line kenwoods, but the sub that supra uses is actually a pretty nice kenwood sub. still getting jettisoned, but much further up the food chain than the 6.5's..
501-sub will make a HUGE difference in the overall sound of the system. you will be very happy with the end results.
I'd move the polks into the interior and jettison the kickers imo...'06 Supra Launch 20SSV-gone but never forgotten

hlcd are horn loaded compression drivers on the tweeter end. they project the sound a lot further back and typically play a wider frequency than normal tweeters.. what most concert systems use and some high end home speakers(klipsch). they take a ton of power though..'06 Supra Launch 20SSV-gone but never forgotten
