This package is perfect for you if...
- You are want to upgrade the system in your boat that currently has (4), 8" speakers in the hull and you want to add or upgrade (4) tower speakers
- Your boat does not currently have a stereo system in it, but you have room for (4) 8" speakers and you want to add (4) tower speakers
- When out on the water, you want to make sure your music is loud enough and clear enough that both you and the people you are towing you can hear your music clearly and without distortion over the engine, wind, and water noise, even 50-100 yards behind the boat
What is Included?This package includes the following:
- (4) Kicker 8" KM84L Marine Speakers w/ RGB LEDs
- (4) Kicker 9" Marine Horn Tower Speakers w/ RGB LEDs
- (1) Kicker KXM 400W 4 Channel Amplifier
- (1) KXM 1200W 2 Channel Amplifier
- (2) 4 AWG Marine Amplifier Wiring Kits
The package combines with great value you get with Kicker coaxial speakers in the hull with ridiculous volume, loudness, distance, and clarity from the massive Kicker horn tower speakers. The Kicker coaxial hull speakers come with both white and charcoal grilles and feature titanium dome tweeters that will play both loud and clear. The Kicker horn tower speakers are insane. The horn tweeter blows away coaxial tower speakers and they include RGB LEDs. The horn tweeters are going to ensure that you get maximum distance and volume for the people that you are towing behind the boat. If you aren't towing, the horn tower speakers will give you the ability to ensure that everyone within a close proximity can hear your music, if you really want them to. The large size of the horn speakers can usually provide enough low-frequency response that you don't need to worry about adding a subwoofer. The Kicker KXM amps are both powerful and reliable. You can run these amps all day long, as loud as you want, and you don't have to worry about them overheating and cutting out. If you are looking for great sound quality at an affordable price, you can get it from one of the most trusted brands in all of marine and car audio. You can't go wrong with this Kicker tower speaker package

How do I wire the hull speakers?
Powering the speakers for audio is straightforward with this package. For each channel, connect positive on the amplifier to positive on the speaker and negative on the amp to negative on the speaker. Do this for all 4 speakers and you should be good to go.
How do I wire the tower speakers?
The tower speaker wiring is slightly more complicated, but still pretty straightforward. You want to wire your speakers in parallel. Wire the tower speakers off of the KXM 1200 watt, 2 channel amplifier. The amp will see a two ohm load. Wire the left positive terminal on the amp to positive on BOTH of the left tower speakers. You can also wire to positive to left on one of the tower speakers and then daisy chain over to the other positive terminal to save the amount of speaker wire you need. Do the same thing for the left side but for the negative terminals. Now repeat what you did on the left side to the right side. Please see the wiring diagram for a better visual explanation. If your tower has been pre-drilled to run wire, you can run wire through the tower, you can choose to drill into your tower, or you can run the wire along the tower. If you run wire along the tower, we recommend using zip ties every couple of inches for a clean install that is not going to flap in the wind.
How do I wire LEDs in the speakers?
The LEDs in the speakers require 6 conductor speaker wire, or some refer to it as multi-function cable, or RGB speaker wire. This wire is jacketed cabled with 2 larger 16 AWG conductors for the audio signal and power, and then 4 smaller conductors to power the LEDs. The LEDs will illuminate as a single static color when powered on. The black wire is for 12V power. Whichever colors you connect to ground will be the colors that will illuminate. If you connect, splice, and ground only the red wires, you will get red. The same is true for both blue and for green. You can also combine colors for more options. Red/Green make lime green, Red/Blue make magenta, Blue/Green make aquamarine, and Red/Blue/Green make blue-white. See the owner's manual for more details.
Are clamps included with the tower speakers?
Yes, the Kicker horn tweeter tower speakers include a dual clamp design for each speaker and they swivel 359-degrees so that you can aim them exactly where you want to, depending on whether you are towing someone behind the boat, or on dry land with the boat docked.
Is the amp wiring kit included?
No. We do not include the amp wiring kit because every boat ends up being different. Depending on the location of your amps and the battery location, the power wire might need to be 20+ feet long for one boat and only 9 feet long for the next. The way to solve for this would be to include a 20 foot long amp wiring kit in with every package. This would then force the customer than only needs 9 feet to overpay for something he or she doesn't need.
What about the RCAs?
Similar to the amp wiring kit situation, we also don't include the RCAs because we don't know the length you need and it varies from boat to boat.
Is speaker wire included?
Speaker wire is not included. Once again, we don't know the exact length you might need. If we include it, we have to make sure we err on the side of including too much as opposed to too little.
