UV Resistant 6-1/2 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 6 1/2" woofer cone and a 13mm PEI dome tweeter. It has an impedance of 4 ohms and is suited for use with amplifiers rated for 80 watts per channel.
|Woofer Type||6 1/2" diameter polypropylene/mica with rubber edge|
|Voice Coil||25mm KSV|
|Tweeter Type||13mm PEI dome|
|Maximum Recommended Amplifier Power||80W|
PROS: Nice look, well sealed, sound unreal, cheap price but not cheap quality or sound!
CONS: Nothing major, mounting hardware would be nice
PROS: To begin with let me say that I haven't had a chance to run the speakers for a long period to discern the sound quality at peak levels. That being said, speakers showed up real quick! I beleive within a day! My boat's 4 speakers were crapped out with only one working. I wasn't sure if it was wiring related or the speakers, but for the price of these speakers I couldn't go wrong. Plus, the speakers in the boat were probably original or close to it and that would make them 20 years old. Needless to say I plugged them in and everything worked great. Sound was loud, clear, and deep. But, as I said, they haven't been used out on the water for an entire day, and competing against the sound of the motor and the wind.
CONS: None that I can think of. For the price you can't go wrong. EVEN if they don't sound great at peak levels, the stereo has no amp so that would probably help the sound. Head units can't push speakers well so I have no big illusions.
PROS: Sounds great
Great bang for your buck
CONS: Speaker grilles yellow from UV exposure
PROS: sound quality, price, performance, fit and finish
PROS: Excellent sound, built well, weather proof, salt air proof.
CONS: Not really an issue, you just have to remember to get crimp on connectors to attach to wires for installation to speakers.
PROS: Excellent quality and very efficient. Sound better than the Clarions I replaced and cost less than half as much.
CONS: One piece design without a removable grill cover. Just means the screws show which isn't a big deal. Don't come with wire in case you needed that.
PROS: Awesome, White, UV fade resistant (as of 2 months direct sunlight for 7-8 hours a day crisp white) and Sound great.
CONS: One (out of 6 total speakers) came with the trim/flange broke, little bit of glue fixed it.
PROS: Amazing sound and price. Surprising amount of bass.
Installation was easy, although that obviously depends on your use scenario. The included template was handy. It's worth pointing out that you will need spade connectors or (as I did) just solder directly to the tabs.
My only complaint about these speakers is the fact that the grille is non-removable. I intend to paint these at some point, and having a removable grille would make that process a heck of a lot easier. But given the price point and the sturdy construction of these speakers, that's a minor nitpick.
PROS: Good sound, easy installation, solid construction
CONS: Non-removable grille
Don't think twice, order these, and if you hate them - dude, they're so inexpensive you can put them on your patio like I did and spend 5x as much for the nice 'name brand' stuff.
Monoprice is the best!
PROS: Awesome, white, sound more than good enough for an outdoor setting. So far they haven't faded in color at all (two in direct sunlight for 3 months)
CONS: None really, for the price from monoprice, I vote go with these!
