Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these speakers to replace Kenwood 6.5 inch speakers on my Grady White. I picked these because of the 91 db sensitivity since I don't have an external amplifier. I believe the Kenwoods were 84 db. These play louder and clearer and can handle a bump in bass. Even my wife noticed the difference. Replacement was easy and took only 15 minutes. They use the same mounting holes as the previous speakers. Very satisfied with this purchase.

Features

UV- and Water-Resistant: These marine speakers feature UV- and water-resistant white grilles, composite speaker baskets, injection-molded polypropylene cones, rubber woofer surrounds, PEI semi-dome tweeters, and stainless steel mounting hardware.

Injection-molded Polypropylene (IMPP) Woofers: Each woofer is constructed from injection-molded polypropylene. This process of cone molding assures a uniform cone thickness for superior linearity and clarity. In addition, the cones are lightweight and rigid for decreased distortion and superior bass response. For a smoother response and increased durability, each woofer uses a rubber surround.

Tweeters: Each speaker uses a 1" PEI semi-dome tweeter. PEI (Poly-Ether Imide) is a polymer that has ideal sound characteristics, making it perfect for use as a tweeter. A PEI semi-dome tweeter produces a wide soundstage for superior imaging.

Why did you buy this?

I have a pair already. [ JOEL J  Jul 15, 2016 ]
Marine grade at a moderate price [ tom  Jun 09, 2016 ]

3 questions already asked

I have my speakers mounted on the outside of my trailer. I would think it depends on how wide your center console is. The specs for those speakers should be here on this page. [ SCOTT  Jan 18, 2015 ]
More than likely they will. I used them to replace speakers on my Hewes Maverick and they fit fine. Other brands 6 1/2" would not fit. It really depends on original brand size. Trial and error with ability to return is your best shot. [ William  Jan 18, 2015 ]
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: The Pioneer TSMR164 will fit nicely in place of the Kenwood speakers. Everything will be an easy replacement. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy  Jul 01, 2014 ]  Staff
Thanks guys [ Jesse  Mar 19, 2014 ]
I ran into a similar problem, the hole also was too shallow, l used aluminum plate and cut out a ring over sized ,fastened the speaker to the ring and the ring to the surrounding hole and painted the speaker grill to match. It worked for my application. [ JAY  Mar 18, 2014 ]
Hey Jesse, The best thing I can tell you is dremel the holes out a little larger with a cutting bit. It really doesn't take that long. Good luck. [ DAVID R  Mar 18, 2014 ]
