I am generally content with factory car audio so the expense of high performance is normally a waste on me.

Can I get some thoughts on my needs?

I'll be replacing the tower speakers also. I'll probably go with the same speakers in the cabin and the tower. unless there is a compelling reason to go with something else in the same price range. Wetsounds and the like would be under utilized in my boat.

I have the 651s in the front and the 6501s in the rear (previous owner already made cutouts for components in the rear). As far as my ears are concerned, the 6501s sound quite a bit better. But if I didn't already have the cutouts for them, I'd probably put some coaxials in there and be done with it.

I love the look of the MM651's but If the 6501's sound better and are cheaper than that looks like the way to go. A previous post mentioned that the 6501's only lasted one season. Kind of a concern for me but who knows how loud or what they went through.

What radio are you guys using to push the Polk DB651.

I would have to check model number later this week but ours is a marine grade Clarion CD/radio/mp3. Nothing fancy.
