Klipsch T85 pods

Does anyone here have T85 pods on their 2018 boats? I haven't heard them myself and am curious if anyone could provide a review.

I'd be curious as well. Are the pods worth the extra $$?

I have them on my X46 and love them. The sound is clear and loud. A definite improvement over the JL's in my opinion. They are heavy however. Its a tug to raise the tower.

Do the T85 pods have the horn driver or are they the 8.5" speakers? I have ones with horn driver in center and I have to say they are loud as hell and I don't even have the new software update. They do lack the mid range bass that the full rack of JL speakers had (2 - 7.7" and 2 - 8.8") but they are louder and more clear imo.

The T85's have a horn in the center with two 7" (maybe 5.5") on each side.

Thanks guys. Still not sure the pods are worth the dollars...anyone have two 85's? How do they sound behind the boat? It seems the Klipsch software update may make a big difference.
