these marine speakers sound incredible. I was happily surprised with the deep bass notes these 8's put off. I paired them with the Skar marine 6.5 and they blend very well. I opted for an amp with the 8s and deck power for the 6.5..
I like these speakers, they play loud and are in a difficult situation, being on a boat. The highs are very crisp but they speakers themselves are cold and sterile sounding. I would prefer a little warmth from them but hey, for the price and for their performance, I am giving them two thumbs up. They are seeming to sound better, the more I play them but I haven't had them long enough to call them 'broken in', time will tell, but I am overall happy with my purchase.
Great looks. Haven't installed yet. Boat in storage for winter.
