Summary: These speaker are some of the best you will ever hear on the water. I drive four sets on my 25' weekender. Two sets on the swim platform are driven with an 800/8v2 bridged to 4 channels and the other two sets are in the cockpit along with 2 jl audio 10" subs. They are driven with the 1000/5v2.
Pros: Handles power with no problem. Good clean sound. Attractive appearance
Summary: I bought a pair of JL 770 with the tweeter and installed in old speaker holes which had to be expanded. Had a pair of Alpines that came with the boat in the cockpit. Easy installation and a superior sound.
Pros: Easy to install and good sound improvement over most other options.
Summary: I have 4 pair of these in my 27' powerquest along with 4 - 10" subs. All powered by 4 amps, 2 MHD-750/1 and 2 MHD-600/4. This set up works GREAT. I do not know how you could get a better sounding system. REAL deep base, crystal clear mid's and awesome highs. All crystal clear, and PERFECT sounds.
Summary: The price of these speakers will make anyone consider the other options but these speakers are no exception to the old rule: "You get what you pay for." I've had these speakers on my boat for three years now and they sound as good as the day they were installed.

Conclusion: These are the best Marine speaker on he market. Just make sure you have a good sized amp, to really take advantage of them. A small head unit or underpowered amp will not make them 'sing' like they do with good clean power!
Conclusion: These are the most kick ass indestructible speakers that I know of. They work so well I was at a boating bar party last summer and the bar owner asked me to turn my stereo down so his customers could hear the band he paid for, and I was 80 yards from the band in the lake.
