are there any brands that do decent 6x9s still? the problem i have is that the holes in the cockpit are already cut so to change to another speaker size means filling, painting etc. so at this stage i replace with cheap marine 6x9s out of the states as they are the only option i can find but i know that they will only last a coupe of years max and then i will have to do something

I believe that fusion do 8.8" speakers. That could be an option if they fit? 0.2" is only 5mm so most likely would be a straightforward swap as long as you had the room for the extra height. They would crank too!

You might like to read this page https://www.marinestereo.com/Fusion-Speakers-vs-JL-Audio.html

"Fusion is a Lambo, JL Audio is a Rolls"

The top end JL Audio is hands down the best stereo I've ever heard, but it's spendy!

The article on the linked page is terrible! Supposedly Fusion vs JL yet it's mainly Wet Sounds vs JL!

Have you checked that the polarity is right for the speakers? 

 

Yeah - its all fine except that the two speakers face each other across the cockpit.  If you sit exactly between them its like headphones.  Anywhere outside that sweetspot its either silence or some degree of frequency cancellation.

Angle them so they are not facing each other.  When i get some time I'm going to either make a louvered front for them, or make a box for the existing holes that points the speaker's down the cockpit.  Louvres take up less space, box will be more effective.

No offense, but that's not how it works. When both speakers push out = high pressure, when both speakers suck in= low pressure. If one pushes out when the other pulls in = no pressure. Swap the polarity to one of the speakers and I'll bet you will get your bass back.

 

Plenty of boats have speakers facing each other and sound ok (mine included).
