I just installed the MM691's and the and the MM651's in my Maristar. I put the 6 x 9's in the front and the 6 1/2's in the rear. I am driving them with a Rockford Fosgate "Old School" amp. Crazy thing is for the first few hours of playing them the day I installed them I wasn't happy with their sound. As I waxed the boat the next day however I left the stereo on and as the hours went by they sounded awesome. I actually found them on Ebay for around $240.00 for both pair. The 6 x 9's are really fantastic! They almost drown out the sub in the back of the boat. I also have a pair of their 6" MOMO's on my tower with a RF amp. I would not hesitate to put these great looking speakers in your boat! And remember about the break in period, after a few hours you won't be disappointed.

overkill imo unless you're boating on salt. the baskets and the rest of the motor structure are identical i'm pretty sure and i know the surface material on the midbass is the same carbon/glass fiber.

you are also no doubt paying a bit more for the certification they received from testing.
Pretty much correct. Install depth is very close to standard db. The cross over housing, does take up alittle room, but adds some protection to woofer cone. As to improve highs, we sometimes hear what we want too.

Plus, I think they look, more BUTCH!

I have got some Polk db650's gathering dust in my garage if anyone wants them. I have 2 pair. I think they were great, but replaced them with Wetsounds and thought the Wetsounds were better.

I think something that has been stated but not directly, is that it is really important to get enough power to your speakers. I think that is not likely to be the case with your clarions, but if you find the new speakers to be lacking, make sure you have a powerful enough amp to push them.

Thanks for the advice. I also just pm'd you about them.

Polk for certain. Best speaker for the money, hands down.
