Our take on the Polk MM651UM

by Buck Pomerantz
Polk Audio

Polk Audio continues its tradition of making brilliant-sounding speakers in stylishly designed packages — their Mobile Monitor (MM) Series Ultra Marine speakers look great and sound even better while meeting the challenges of sun and water to bring you superior sound on your boat.

The Polk MM651UM 6-3/4" marine speakers feature honeycomb-textured woven glass fiber composite woofer cones that resist and suppress unwanted resonances yet respond very quickly for a crisp and powerful sound. Large voice coils — over an inch in diameter — give the speaker high-power handling capability and extended reliability.

These sealed speakers resist damage from UV rays and salt water, so they'll provide great sound on your vessel for years to come. Each speaker utilizes an extra-small neodymium magnet that saves space and weight, while still delivering a full sound with lots of kick. Their lightweight carbon composite frames provide strong, flex-free support for the speakers' motor assemblies.

The 1" soft dome tweeters add a sweet high end that blends perfectly with the low notes so your music stays in harmonic balance, from the electric bass all the way on up to the cymbals. Stainless steel terminal posts will not corrode or rust, keeping your speaker wires reliably connected.

Note: Polk describes this model as a 6-1/2" speaker. Most manufacturers designate this same frame size as a 6-3/4" speaker. For simplicity's sake, we list it as a 6-3/4" speaker.

Our Product Research Team

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.

We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.

Features

Marine Certified: This Polk MM Series speaker is built to withstand exposure to moisture, salt water, high humidity, UV rays, and a wide temperature range so they work well in a marine environment; such as a boat. The speaker has passed rigorous hours of salt fog and UV testing. The speaker also features a completely sealed front design to prevent water intrusion. In addition, they include stainless mounting hardware for corrosion and rust resistance.

Klippel Optimized Components: Using a state-of-the-art Klippel Distortion Analysis, Polk engineers were able to optimize the woofer's motor structure, voice coil alignment and suspension for the best possible performance, even at extreme listening levels.

Woofer Cones: Woven glass composite cones feature tremendous stiffness-to-mass ratio. Lower mass means faster transients and finer detail.

Butyl Rubber Surrounds: For a smoother response and improved durability, the woofers use butyl rubber surrounds. The airtight rubber surrounds stand up to moisture, sunlight and extreme temperatures while allowing long excursion linear motion and years of reliable use.

Silk/Polymer Composite Tweeters: The 1" liquid-cooled, silk/polymer composite tweeters provide clear, detailed highs.

Neodymium Magnets: The speaker's neodymium magnets offer exceptional strength to performance ratio and is extremely lightweight.

Large Diameter Voice Coils: Large diameter, 30mm voice coils increase the speaker's reliability and power handling capacity.

Carbon Composite Basket: The speaker's carbon composite basket is lightweight and will not flex during music audio peaks.

Built-In Crossovers: A sealed crossover assembly is built into the back of the speaker cover; no need to find room to hide an extra box.

Built-On Grilles: The speaker's built-on grille includes the tweeter mount which eliminates the traditional tweeter stalk.

Great speakers

Written By Jesse T, Raleigh, NC on Saturday, October 20, 2012
 
These are some great marine speakers. Picked these up, along with their sister model that are split mids and tweets, and they are great in my boat. Big sound upgrade over the stock speakers. Can't go wrong with Polk.

They do the job.

Written By Dan O'Donnell, Newtown, CT on Saturday, July 28, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I like the speakers. They sound great. Not cheap, but for a pontoon boat you need 4 x 100W so you can hear it with the engine running. These sound pretty crisp. I paired mine with a Rockford Fosgate 4 x 100w marine amp. One thing I am very impressed with is how much base this setup produces (with Rockford's base booster on the amp). I don't need to add a sub.
Pros:
Crisp highs. Strong base.
Cons:
Not cheap.

These speakers and this company rocks.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
After reading all the reviews I decided to try these speakers and I must say they freakin rock. I wished I had more room for two more. The lows are great for a 6 1/2 mid speaker, outstanding! Put them on the boat and got rave reviews. As for as Crutchfield's, what can I say other than outstanding service, ordered on a Tuesday and was installing them Wednesday evening.
Pros:
everything!
Cons:
Wished it had a better grille to cover the speaker against damage, but the cone seems pretty stout so I don't think i will have any problems.
