love some price wars! WMT and AMZN have been battling it out this year. <BR> <BR>thanks for the heads up.

wakevb 12-01-2009 9:26 AM

Those speakers sound great in my boat just on the head unit. I just asked for two more sets and I am going to buy a few more for xmas presents for my parents ponty. Good lookin out man.

dirwoody 12-01-2009 9:31 AM

HOLY ISH (yes I was yelling!) <BR>That is sick, I have no need for them right now though....may have to pick them up just in case though, that's too good of a deal.

wakecumberland 12-01-2009 9:32 AM

how do these compare to the stock JL speakers in my 06 MC?

acurtis_ttu 12-01-2009 9:53 AM

^^^ Stock JL are better.

polarbill 12-01-2009 10:11 AM

Adam, the JL's are far better but if I remember correctly they are grossly underpowered by the stock JL amp. Find an amp that will put out 125-150 watts to each component and see if they sound better.

pnichols 12-01-2009 10:40 AM

Just bought a set....thanks for the heads up.

I wonder if the original poster is an Amazon Associate or not. Smart move if they are, I think they could have paid for their speakers just through the 15% referral fee...<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/biggrin.gif" border=0>

brainrinse 12-01-2009 11:07 AM

Wait, there is a referral bonus?!?! EVERYONE THAT ORDERED SPEAKERS PLEASE SEND ME $5! <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0> <BR> <BR>No, I'm not an Amazon associate, just found this deal and thought I'd share with my fellow boaters. Merry Christmas!

wakeboardsam 12-01-2009 11:15 AM

I know... I was just having fun. I bought three pairs. I'll probably get blasted for "Accusing" you of such... I also didn't get this post approved prior to posting it...

wakebrdr38 12-01-2009 11:27 AM

I bought a pair for my jeep. Hope they are as good as everyone claims. I have focals up front and need some decent speakers in the back to just back them up.

tailgate 12-01-2009 11:32 AM

how do these sound compared to the kicker km613 that are stock on the Moomba LSV?

skongolf 12-01-2009 11:45 AM

Well I just bought 2 pairs to replace the pioneers I had. Slowly trying to piece together a system for my boat. So far so good. Just wish they had tower speakers for sale.

brainrinse 12-01-2009 12:11 PM

Tailgate - I bought these to replace the stock Kickers on my LSV. At full price it probably wasn't worth the upgrade, but for $100 it is well worth it. Based on specs and reviews I expect a very noticeable difference. I like the look better as well. You could probably sell your 6 Kickers and make your net cost close to nothing.

bjeremi 12-01-2009 5:18 PM

Damn that is a good deal!

99_slaunch 12-01-2009 5:37 PM

RMS is only 60 though 180 peak.

wakeboardsam 12-02-2009 10:44 PM

Well my three sets came today... The amazon warehouse is in Phoenix!! I got three sets for my brothers SAN that I gave him, it's only a signature series and came without any stereo... <BR> <BR>Grant, don't you have an ancient Nautique speaker install thread on here somewhere? If I remember correctly the holes are cut at the factory, but you installed rings around your speakers...

skongolf 12-03-2009 8:00 AM

Ordered at 11:00 Tuesday, Received at 4:00 yesterday. Wayyyy Fast!! Probly got mine out of PHX too.

wakeboardsam 12-03-2009 8:22 AM

Here mine are... <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/3183/749874.jpg" alt="Upload">

crghou 12-03-2009 10:40 AM

ahhh! why didnt i see this last night. I just ordered them from crutchfield for 115 for 2. And now they are only 70 from amazon. Good thing crutchfield let me cancel my order.

smitty1258 12-04-2009 11:48 AM

I wonder if these would sound better than my stock skylon?

you_da_man 12-04-2009 2:01 PM

Looks like one pair per user account on Amazon on these. I ordered 3 pair, got 1 (was only charged for 1). Tried to order 2 more pair, went to checkout and Amazon automatically "updated" my shopping cart to "0" and gave a message stating "limited quantities"

you_da_man 12-04-2009 2:35 PM

Great news, I was shopping around for the other 2 pair of Polk db651 and see that Earmark Marine has priced their Polk db651 at $99 for TWO PAIR. Just placed my order. I have already visited Earmark Marine in person a couple months ago when Bullet Speakers had the sale on the Hollow Point HLCD, great guys and an impressive shop to say the least.

wakeboardsam 12-04-2009 2:37 PM

AJ, <BR>Something is wrong here. I ordered three pairs as you can see in the above photo... I would suggest that you try again.

you_da_man 12-04-2009 2:45 PM

Sam, <BR> <BR>I tried several times and different methods to add the speakers to the shopping cart. They added just find but when going to pay, that's where I kept getting the "limited quantities" message and it would update my cart to "0". Oh well, I went with Earmark Marine for a little more money but with the added security of being an authorized dealer IF something happens to the speaker. Here's the message I got "We're sorry. This item has limited purchase quantity. We have changed your purchase quantity to the maximum allowable." <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR>(Message edited by you_da_man on December 04, 2009) <BR> <BR>(Message edited by you_da_man on December 04, 2009)

Google polk db651 and there are a bunch of places selling them at that price. Well they were when this thread first started duno about now.

burban89 12-04-2009 6:26 PM

I purchased 3 pair on Wed and got them today. Not installing till Feb or march though. Getting a new floor installed <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>>

tylers 12-06-2009 6:46 PM

I ordered two pair on Tuesday night late when I saw this. Had them at my door on Thursday. Installed and sound great. Hope to get out next weekend and give them a real test. Thanks d powers for the post! Also picked up a Sony HU cheap from Amazon.

12-06-2009 8:24 PM

I think it is only 1 pair per Amazon account user. I think I was able to order 2 pairs because I didn't sign up for an Amazon account I clicked skip when it came to that part and went straight to check out

wakeboardsam 12-06-2009 8:32 PM

Nope, I bought three more pairs for the Malibu yesterday after hearing them in my brothers SAN...

pnichols 12-07-2009 8:10 AM

I originally purchased one set last week and went back on today to buy three more and it would only let me buy two. I ended up having a guy I work with buy the a set for me from his account. I received the same message as AJ about being limited quantities. I will be installing mine in the spring. Bought an extra set for my sons car, as a Christmas present. Does anyone have these speakers running in their car?

tailgate 12-07-2009 8:19 PM

Got my 3 sets in today, great price

delmage171 12-09-2009 10:28 AM

Just ordered 2 pair! Stoked Hopefully these sound good running off the Alpine 9886M

rkinsell 12-09-2009 10:32 AM
