'Decent' marine (waterproof) speakers

The current speakers on my boat are total pants. The idea is to get an amp, and then some 'decent' speakers.

I guess im going to go for the 'waterproof' ones, eventhough the speakers are nearly always covered by a canopy.

The problem is that all the eBay ones are selling for about £20, and I presume theyre the same rubbish ones that are currently in my boat.

Does anyone know where I can get a decent, good quality (possibly 3 way) 6" waterproof speakers online?

You could try these:- Boss Wakeboard tower speakers on Ebay

I've been thinking about a set of these myself but decided that I don't want that much wiring in an A-frame.

The price of the 800w marine amp isn't too bad either.

The other option I'm looking at is getting a pair of these -I think the cases would look rather good flo-coated to colour match a boat.

Matt,

Thanks for the link. I'm seriously considering buying some of the wakeboard speakers. But the price had been putting me off till now. They seem a bargain though. So time to start thinking about it again.
