    Default Need Help with Tower Speaker Selection 18 Craz

    Put a deposit on a 18 Craz. Has bow speakers with amp and amp & wired for tower (no speakers) from factory. Have speakers from dealer built in to deal. Down to 2 choices: Roswell R1 8" or Wet Sounds Rev 10. Want it to sound good, but do not need to be centerpiece of lake by any means. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

    You are comparing an 8" to a 10". Thats like comparing a 20ft boat to a 24ft boat in regards to interior room. Larger speaker always has the advantage. More surface area yields greater output and deeper mid-bass then a smaller speaker. I have not yet demo'd the R1 8 in a tower pod. Placing an infinite-baffle in-boat speaker on a small pod typically reduces the mid-bass a little.

    The Rev 10 is where I was 1st going but not in stock. They have the R1 8" in stock and ready. Good looking speaker, but sound is more important. I guess I should ask if anybody has an opinion on the Roswell R1 8" Tower and not necessarily a comparison. Thanks

    Iíd wait for the rev10ís to be back in stock as itís pretty much the King and HLCD.
    the R1 8Ē is just ok like the rest of the line by Roswell in my opinion. Itís like a Exile or Kicker in a pod. The JL 8.8 is designed for the pod if you really want a coax. The WetSounds Icon8 is another top contender in the coaxial tower speaker world, over Roswell..
    My opinion of course.

    Unless JL built a new 8.8 recently, it wa not a T version like the 7.7 tower pod version. Its the same 8.8 as the in-boat and it shows. The 1.25" tweeter is a little dominant.

    Rev10 without question! If it is not in stock it is definitely worth the wait. You can also look at other websites to order it from if your local dealer is out of stock. I got my stuff from earmark audio in Plano, TX, super helpful bunch.

    Rev10. Wait is worth it. Easy.

    Don't second guess this. Rev10 is right answer.

    Are you going with 2 or 4 speakers on the tower? Would love to see where you mount them especially if you are going with 4.

    I mounted two in the stock location and the other two where the stock hole is for the speaker wire.
