Well, IMO, the Kicker KMT60 is a better choice, but is not ideal to be run bridged on an 4 chnl amp due to its below 4 ohm nominal impedance. Under load at higher volume levels, it can put a 4 chnl amp into protect mode. Output wise, the ZX350.4 would be ideal power for the 8" Bazooka HLCD's. Cross them over high, as they do not like the mid-bass that other 8" HLCD's do. If you wanted to make an amp change, the Kicker IX500.2 would be ideal for a pair of KMT60

Thanks MLA. I also have a Punch 500aII amp. If I were to use this amp instead would it be the best option with the KMT60?

Not much out there and that amp, but if I am finding the right specs, then the 500a2 does 125W x 2 @ 4 and 250W x 2 @ 2. Power wise, this amp will be good, but can it be switched to Hi-Pass with variable cross-over filter.

The punch does have High pass, full and Low pass. I'm down with other speakers on the tower as long as I can keep the price down.

If I get the 6500.2's what do I put them in? I think they are pretty long.

I would keep the Polk MM series in mind. had some on my 205V and they were LOUD! 4 polks hooked up to a 475 watt clarion amp.

I had 4 polk's on my last boat that were in fiberglass cans. They sounded awesome. They do not sell those cans that have 2 speakers each anymore. Wish I could afford HLCD. I could put some KRYPT in some cans all from e-bay for about $400. Sorry to hyjack this thread.

These are made just for them http://kicker.com/KM_Empty_Enclosures

The KMTE-D's (a pair of doubles) are the best value, but if your tower has a lot of arch to it, 2 pair the KMTE-S (a pair of singles) is a better arrangement.

They fit in my dual aerial cans fine. By fine I mean by like a 1/4". If you have stock cans and they barely touch you can always put a speaker ring in to give you the room needed.
