Where can I get a good deal on Tower speakers for my x 15?

Need tower speakers for my 07 x-15- they are so pricey, any deals anywhere?

Yes, new Wetsounds Pro80s in white are on sale for $699 a pair....normally $1K. That's not exactly entry level but that's cheap for a new 8-inch HLCD.
Those who go with four automotive style coaxials at half the price are never satisfied and end up spending more with an upgrade and turning over their initial purchase.

David,

I'm thinking of upgrading as well. Do you guys offer good deals or sell at MSRP. What do I get or notice between pro80's and Rev8's. Why the dif in price?

AZX9,
Some manufacturers have advertised price guidelines that we respect. The actual purchase price may be different. Contact us privately.
As for the published price difference between the Pro80 and REV8?
The Pro80 was much higher but is now on a close-out special.
The Pro80 is limited to one finish.
The Pro80 is all about amplitude and projection.
The next generation of REV8 is the result of years of experience and development. It is more compact (same pod as the previous Pro60), has an entirely new clamping system and is a more linear (as in a smoother, more musical sounding) HLCD speaker. There is no additional sonic benefit at 80 feet but it is a great sounding speaker for near field listening.

David

I ordered all my equipment from David and then even eventually ended up driving my boat from Beaver Lake to Dallas to have them install everything. Great company to work with.

I would say that a good majority of listening will be sitting on the platform or near by. So maybe sucking it up for the Rev 8 would be the way to go if that is the case. I'll maybe pair it up with a Syn2 so if I want a second pair it will work in Parallel.

Nope. If and when I do something I'll go with wetsounds and offset the cost by selling my stock cans.

Take a look at the Wet Sounds Icon-8. 8" Coaxial surf speaker. 2 pair would be a perfect match for the Syn-2.

Yeah, but what about at the end of the rope?
