I got my boat in the end of the summer, a 2004 x-star. I got it shiped from the US to sweden. Great boat, but when i got it i noticed that all the toer speakers, the original Clarion ones were busted. Guess from sun and water, almost all the rubber around the cones is gone :( So i need to replace them, what should i get? What fits in the original cans? Should i just get new Clarions, they're quite cheap or should i get something else? All suggestions are appreciated

Some of it depends on your goals and your budget.

Do you want to hear the sound loud and clear while wakeboarding? This will require much more power (likely a new amp, too) and will be enough that people will hear you a long ways away. If your lake has homes around it, they may not like the noise. This all comes with a price. Check out www.Wetsounds.com or www.nvs1.net for something like that.

If you just relax in a cove and would like to have some music to swim around the boat with, and to hear when the boat is parked, the Clarions or a similar style will be fine. You can also get some more expensive ones that will get some sound to the rider, but not like wetsounds or NVS.

I put a pair of the WetSounds Pro 80's on my boat last year and these things are amazing! A bit on the high dollar side but well worth it IMHO.

Did you think 2 was plenty or would you go 4 on the tower?? I guess what I mean is will the 2 put out as much as 4 of the stock stuff.
