Has anyone on here mixed there tower speakers? Basically has anyone used 2-6.5's and 2-6x9's? I've got two polk db650's and can't decide if I want to get two more 6.5's or if getting the 6x9's would even be a good idea. I am about to order a new sub and amp and figured I might as well do this while I am at it.

Just let me know what your experiences and thoughts are.

Should be just fine.
I personally would stick to the 6.5's But that's just me.

I did some research and it says that 6x9's were made for enclosed spaces and have lots of acoustics. I was just wondering if anyone had installed them with just 2 of each. I have seen a few with mixing 4 of each, which I don't imagine that you would be able to notice much difference.
Thanks for the input though.

Are you doing cans or a box? I would not take the time to build a box in that configuration. If you already have the 6.5's in cans on the tower and just want to add a pair of 6x9 cans that would probably be work fine. The 6x9s are 93db efficient vs 92db on the 6.5s. The 6x9s take 100 watts vs only 60 watts for the 6.5s.

I have done db675's in cans on a friends boat. They are fine for listening while hanging out but you can't really hear them while boarding. In my opinion they are really too weak for the tower.

You have a nice boat, it deserves a decent system on the tower too.

Thanks for the input guys. I'll prolly just stick with the 6.5's, now I just need to figure out the configuration I want amp wise. I have a 6 channel right now that pushes 75 Watts to all my speakers. I am wanting to get a sub and two more 6.5's for the tower. Which amp should I get and how should I wire everything? Should I keep the sub separate, should I put the tower speakers on the same amp and the interior and the sub on another? Just kinda curious as to what would work a little better
