I've been looking for some tower speakers and think I have narrowed it down to the Kicker KM 6.5's. I'll be putting 4 of them in DIY cans. I was looking at the KM620, but I'm needing to stay as low budget as I can. The difference I see between the 620 and 613 is the tweeter size (3/4,2 for 620's and 1/2,1.3 on 613's) and the Frequency R. (35-21 for 620's and 35-20 on 613's). My question is how much difference would that really be while riding? The 613's are about half the cost, so wondering if it's worth the tradeoff. Also thought about maybe 2 of each since the grills look the same. Had also been looking at the polk's since they're pretty common on this message board. Has anyone compared the two? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

you won't even be able to tell the difference, you should really spend a few more $$$ and buy some Wetsounds Pro60s. It won't cost much more and will blow away the setup you are wanting to do. Not trying to be rude, just offering my experience. I've done the cheap route, I used them once and pulled them off.

I cant find a price for the PRO 60 anywhere. Anyone know the latest retail price?

I did something like that with my first boat. Used Kicker 6X9's in DIY cans. They sounded alright but just couldn't get back to the rider. My current setup has two Pro 60's and they blow the kickers away.

Nevermind, I just saw them for $800.00 a pair at wakeside. I think Brandon is looking for a much more budget minded set-up than the wetsounds.

I'm currently running 4 Kickers and with the correct amp, they are clean sounding and audible back at the rider.

By design, they are an apple to orange comparison to the Wet Sounds.

Check for "Kicker Outlaw" setup...its 4 kickers, 2 pods all for like 450 or so... they sounds awesome, crisp and clear, no problem hearing them at 80ft. and cheap

Thanks guys. I would love to be running the Wet Sounds, and will be next year. My wife and I have a baby on the way (Doctor said if he's not here in 2 weeks from today he'd be shocked) and the budget is very tight right now. Planning on a V-Drive by this time next year and Wet Sounds will def be on. I just have a little I/O now that has to last this one last year and don't want to drop much $ on it. I found the Kicker 620's for $89/pr and the 613's for $35/pr. Was wanting to know how much difference there would be in the two and if was worth the extra for the 620's. I still haven't ruled out the Polk's. As far as I could find the DX60's were discontinued.

You could try the Kicker KMT6 as well Brandon. They come in pairs....4 speakers total. They are budget tower speakers but I have heard good things about them. You can get them on ebay for $240-$270.
