UV Resistant 5-1/4 Inches 2-Way Marine Speaker (Pair)
You'll be rocking the boat with these marine speakers from Monoprice!
These speakers are designed for use in marine and other outdoor applications. They are constructed with a polypropylene/mica speaker woofer cone and PEI tweeter, which are resistant to both water and ultraviolet rays, making them ideally suited to installation on the outside of a boat, by a pool, or just about anywhere outdoors.
The speaker cone has a rubber edge for both flexibility and water resistance. There is also a rubber seal inside the mounting holes, which helps keep the back of the speakers dry. They have thick, impact-resistant, white plastic face plate, which will withstand bumps and scrapes without breaking or scratching.
This model features a 5 1/4" woofer cone and a 13mm PEI dome tweeter. It has an impedance of 4 ohms and is suited for use with amplifiers rated for 70 watts per channel.

Understand that I have no previous experience with marine speakers, but I suspect that making speakers water and UV resistant results in at least some sound quality compromises. I am not completely satisfied with the resulting sound quality, but these are only 5.25"you can't expect too much. The water resistant construction includes non-removable grills that I suspect muffle the sound a bit.
These probably deserve a full 10 rating if the category is "water resistant 5.25 inch speakers". I rated them a 9 because of my general dissatisfaction with the sound quality, but they are very well constructed speakers and look very nice.
PROS: Very high quality, look great, water resistant
CONS: Not the best sound quality, but I suspect it is a compromise to be water resistant.
PROS: quality, sound, price
PROS: Great Quality Great Price
CONS: Not a fan of the permanent grills, but that's subjective
PROS: Decent sound quality for 5 1/4 speakers. Very well constructed. No logo on the grill, giving it a nice clean appearance
CONS: Grills aren't removable
Very good sound for speaker size. Better sound than original speakers.
Would purchase again. Would recommend to others.
PROS: Very Good Sound. Good Fit, Great Price
