i have a 96 supersport with real bad sound. I was just going to do one thing at a time, so for the moment i thought i could get by with just four good 6 inch speakers. its a cheap upgrade i can do by the weekend. I've got that cloth cover built into the vinyl for speaker grills, so i never knew what i had in there and assumed they were stock 5" because everything sounded so weak. turns out they were replaced, and some clarion 6 1/2 were back mounted in there. they look kinda new and for 100W i thought they would sound better.
so my question is how schit are these speakers? if you are driving the boat, you can barely hear them. are four 6 inch speakers running off of a deck just that weak in a boat because of the open air (compared to having the same thing in a car)?
if so, i better start learning about amps and subs. one other thing - the original 5" setup has a plastic tube built into the panels. the clarions are of course larger than this tube, and when backmounted, are kind of restricted. i don't know how much this would muffle the sound.
would i be wasting $$$ upgrading these? would the improvement be small, medium, or large?

thanks for any help

get an amp first. Like 50 or 75 rms. Will be an amazing difference.

X2 on the amp. You won't believe it's the same speakers.
