I’ve been reading tons of reviews online for the money I’m btw these two name brands. I’d love JL Audio but out of my budget. I want a decent sound that’s gonna last in salt. I loved my polks but we all know they won’t hold up. Thanks.

Fusion makes some great marine headunits so it is feasible that fusion speakers will also hold up well in a Marine environment.

I just ordered 6 kickers. Anything will be a huge improvement over stock.
My buddy has kickers in his Bennington tri-toon and they sound really good. One thing to remember is boat stereos are in the open. All you need is a good speaker that has the ability to get loud/take power, IMO. The kickers will do just that.

I replaced my stock speakers with four 7 inch fusions and a fusion head unit and a small Kenwood amp. Had it for a few years and it sounds great. The speakers even came with 3 different grills if you want to change the look.
