    Can these speakers connnect to a bluetooth radio?
    Jamie M on Jun 23, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes. The speakers hook up to the Bluetooth device like a Bluetooth ready receiver like normal. Then you can use Bluetooth to play a device like an iPod.
    Can the faceplate be removed to paint it? I want to use these as ceiling speakers in a brown ceiling, and I would like to paint to match.
    Erin D on Nov 27, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: These Marine Speakers do not have detachable grills. You may want to consider the Aria Ceiling Speakers. They are on sale right now for $10 cheaper than the 8555s.

    Can the faceplate be removed for painting it? I would like to use these in a porch ceiling, but the white would not match the ceiling color.
    Erin D on Nov 27, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: No. The speaker grill was not removable on the ones I received.
    Do these need a box to get bass response or can I just install them in the paneling?
    Ryan S on Sep 7, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I installed them in my boat without a box and the bass sound is ok.
    I have installed speakers before, but the wire hookups on these speakers seem odd. How/where do you connect the wires to the speaker? Do you just put the wire thru the hole in the metal piece or do these speakers require a fancier hookup of sometype? Speakers I have hooked up before just have a red & black space similar to the back of a receiver. Both wires on the speaker are black -- which is white/red and which is black?

    Randy V on Mar 18, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. It would be best to use push on Female Spade Terminals. This type of connector is fairly common in marine/car audio. The Positive will be the larger connector and the Negative will be the slimmer connector. Be sure to use the correct size Spade Terminal. The positive side will require 0.25" width and the Negative will require 0.187" width.

    Another great Monoprice product
    I've found myself looking on Monoprice now before I buy any type of electronics to see if they offer it. Theses speakers are great! Sound unreal, was going to add a sub to combo with these and the 4 6x9s bought with them, but they sound so great I'm not even going to bother. Buddy has JL audios that are 5 times the price, and these sound better than those! Super satisfied as usual with another Monoprice product. Now if only we can get Monoprice to keep creating and offering more products!

    PROS: Nice look, well sealed, sound unreal, cheap price but not cheap quality or sound!

    CONS: Nothing major, mounting hardware would be nice

    Absolutely Amazing
    I recently needed to replace the factory speakers in my boat (2005 Yamaha AR230). I have never really been satisfied with the stock speakers so we didn't use the sound system much on the lake. I've thought about installing an expensive systems for some time, but in the end I just decided that we would stick with the stock JVC head unit and add a Bluetooth dongle to get some modern connectivity. In the end I just changed wanted to cheaply change the worn speakers to have the system functional. I was not expecting what I heard on the lake today...these got very loud and had absolutely no distortion from the stock head unit...no matter how loud I drove them. The bass response was enough to make the fiberglass shake and my wife actually had to ask me to turn it down for the first time. :-) If you are looking at these as a factory replacement, I do not believe you will be disappointed. Once in awhile you get something for a good price and it far exceeds your expectations...Monoprice seems to make a habit of making goods that fit this category. This is one good deal!

    PROS: Amazing sound and price. Surprising amount of bass.

    CONS: None.

    Great speaker (even more so with the great price)
    This is a really good set of speakers for the money. I needed to replace a set of 10 year old speakers on my fish & ski and was just about to pull the trigger on a set of Polks when I saw these speakers. Was I ever glad that I did, construction looks solid, they sound great and I saved ~$75

    PROS: Great price, really good sound

    CONS: Grills attached to speaker (unable to remove and paint)

    Replacement Speakers For Boat
    Well worth the money to purchase. I gave it an 8 only because I haven't run them long enough, but that's not a knock on the speakers, their overall sound, or the build quality.

    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.

    Great Sound
    Put two of these in my 17" Runabout connected to a Sony head unit. They sounds very clear at pretty much any volume. A friend of mine heard them and put a pair in his 23' center console Mako. He was blown away by the Bass response, especially in such an open craft. The only reason they didn't get a 5 star rating was that after a year the speaker grilles had yellowed from the sunlight.

    PROS: Sounds great
    Great bang for your buck
    looks good

    CONS: Speaker grilles yellow from UV exposure

    6 1/2â??Marine Speakers
    Mono price did it again! fantastic sound quality for the price! you canâ??t beat it Iâ??ve tried JBLâ??s before but had to return them. The speakers sound really good the trebles a really high, the bass could be deeper. The sound is really clear it does not sound like itâ??s coming out of the bucket. itâ??s very good quality for a marine speakers. Thank you, Mono Price, will be back soon !

    Did not expect the sound coming out of these little speakers, good bass and sound clarity. Very pleased with these speakers.

    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.

    Great value outdoor speakers
    I'll keep this short. You will not be disappointed with these speakers for the price. I bought a pair and I am so satisfied that I came back to buy 2 more pairs. They are already out-of-stock. I guess that I'm not the only one who thinks they are well worth the money.

    Now lets give them a year or two and see how they handle the hot, humid Florida weather. But for now.... Nice job Monoprice and thanks.

    Good luck finding anything comparable for less than $100!
    Putting these in 2nd boat because they lasted years in the first one. 8/10 sound - comparable to anything in the $100 range. Marine audio is notoriously over-priced. I also had 6x9's in my old boat but see they're not available anymore. Please replace these with something comparable! (and add powered sub) Please Monoprice you're my only hope!
