It doesn't look bad in this shot, but close up it is far worse.

brucemac, did you consider the Wetsounds 650's and if so why did you choose the Polk MM6501's.

My 2001 X-5 looks almost identical in, except for the curved seat in the back. I've got the same things going on with that seat. Did you get new MC skins or did you have to have them custom made? I guess I can't get replacement MC skins for mine as it is too old.

BriEOD, you think you could pm Jim's contact info so I can hang on to it? That would be great. Thank you.

X-5 Driver, like these?

Really need to find out what drivers are inside the cans so you can match up the amp specs to the recommended RMS ratings for the speakers.

bxroads, yeah I struggled with that decision for consistency sake, but decided against the XS-650's for a few reasons. 1. I would have had to cut-out larger holes for the XS-650's. 2. I would have had to probably use a spacer up in the bow because of the deep mounting depth of the mid-bass driver(large magnet). 3. They're coaxials so I'd be left with a lame tweeter off to the side of each of my components. 4. I really like the looks of the new Polk MM6501's and I had the older MOMO's in my last boat and they sounded great and held up really well on the water. Wet Sounds has a component set coming out, but last I heard it isn't going to be announced until later this year or early next. I didn't want to wait. They are coming out with a shallow mount version of the XS-650 soon though.

I'm confused. I thought coaxial = tweeter over cone (on the grill).

I currently have components, seperates. The XS-650's are coaxials.

The MM6501's are components, same cut-out, etc.

So they're Rockford Fosgate component speakers then. I highly doubt anybody's running 300W to each of those like that ad claims they're capable of. That's marketing flub.

Everything I see spec wise online for all the Rockford Fosgate Punch series components says 60W RMS or 120W Peak. Which means if you had an amplifer that put out some where in the neighborhood of 60W-100W RMS x 2 @ 4 ohms (just for those speakers) you'd be set.

hope this helps a little
