I have skylon tower speakers and would like replace the 8" kicker sub speakers. Has anyone replaced them with a better louder speaker? It would be nice to have one that bolts right in.

a sub wont work... its frequency response will be too low.

you need to match the impedence and bolt circular diameter.

I realize that this is my question. I have a 8" sub that it came with and need to replace it with a loud speaker.

It's not a sub... that is part of clubmyke's point.

My favorite for a midbass 8" is the Boston Acoustics G108. It is intended to be a sub but is able to play the higher frequencies. I am currently building a system in my personal vehicle with these as mid bass drivers in the front doors.

Another one that is going to be midbass specific and should rock is the JL Auido ZR800. It is not available yet but will be soon.

Boat- What do you feel you are lacking? Volume, midrange, bass, clarity...?

I feel I am lacking volume at the end of the rope for the rider. I have bass in the boat and 6 -6 1/2 two way speakers in the boat. the tower has skylon tower speakers with one 6 1/6 that works good and a 8" bass (or what ever it is) speaker that I can't hear very well. I would like to find something that I could hear at the end of the rope. I was hoping to find a speaker that would be very easy to put in with very little mod if at all.

OK- Do you feel you are lacking volume in the lower midrange - mid bass area (kick drums or lower end of a males voice)? This is the only area that is going to be affected by changing the 8". What Skylon model do you have and how many? What amp are you using to power them? Lets see if can narrow down the results you are looking for before you replace the kicker.

I feel the mid bass area may be missing. I think I have a JL 500 amp. for the sub and a JL 300 for the 6 1/2 speakers.
