I don't know anything about the kicker setup but fwiw honestly two rev 10's is all you need. For the record I have two bullets which is more than I need and the rev 10's outperform the bullets. I think the mid bass of the larger driver is important to prevent the sound from being too obnoxious in the boat when the towers are cranked. The rev 10's will spread the sound just fine in the boat and for surfing.

Yeah, all you need is a pair of $1,100 speakers and a $900 amp I'm sure they sound fantastic but no matter how good it sounds/performs I just can't justify spending $2k on my whole system (let alone just the tower speakers).

To the OP I would probably ditch the other two amps but keep that Kicker amp to power your in boat speakers. There's obviously several ways you could set this up depending on your budget and preference. I'd probably just add a 5 channel to power the towers and sub and call it done. I have this 5 ch amp and it's fantastic:

I think I paid like $300 shipped on eBay though. It's tiny and class D so it barely gets warm at loud volumes and gives a decent amount of run-time on my single battery system. That would give you about 400 watts RMS to the tower speakers (Bridged on front 2 channels) and 200-500 watts to your sub depending on what impedance your voice coils are. I have a dual 2 ohm voice coil sub wired in parallel to mine so it's supposedly giving it 500 watts. If your sub is the more typical 4 ohms you'd only get about 200 watts RMS but you could eventually replace it with a dual 2 ohm woofer.

I just installed the kicker 6500.2 speakers in a set of aerial dbl cans with a bridged clarion 720w amp. They sound great. For 300 shipped I don't think you're beating them. Its easy for people to say get wetsounds but seriously for 700 bucks I'm not willing to jump right now.

I have seriously been considering adding these to my current set up in the outer stock cans but still leaving the 4 coaxials in the middle. I should have enough power from the 3 amps in the boat to power everything still (new to me boat havent poked around much at all)

What is starting to really sell me on these is this video from youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-pxJ2TM4uHg
