Built for marine conditions

These rugged speakers deliver powerful output that'll cut through the combination of wind, water, and engine noise. The weatherproof cone is suspended in a durable synthetic rubber surround for great sound and long life, and the UV-resistant polymer basket protects the entire structure.

No compromises on sound quality

The 1" treated silk dome tweeters render brilliant highs, and they're mounted directly to the grilles for optimal sound radiation. You'll hear all the details of your music, even when the throttle is forward and you're skimming over the waves. High-quality 2-way crossovers make the woofer and tweeter work in perfect concert. You don't have to worry about mounting the crossovers — they're attached directly to the woofer basket.

Bought 8 of these for replacement in our boat. Such an upgrade from the stock Clarions the boat came with. Much clearer and deeper sound.

Amazing speakers

Written by: Expat from Mississippi on November 12, 2015

I have ran 2 pairs of these babies in my boat for 7 years now and they are still rocking just as good as day one. Pushing them with the JL M6600 amp and I can't tell you how pleased I am with them. Crisp, clean and loud sound at any volume. I would not consider any other replacement if I ever have to replace these.

Pros: Awesome sound. Can take lots of power no problem. Amazing weather and conditions resistance. You can't imagine how many times these have has a soapy scrub brush followed by a water hose rinse done to them, they do not care!

Cons: None, zero, nada, zilch!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used four of these to replace the Sony XS MP62 that came with my boat. They are being powered by a nice four channel amp (also Sony), and when I fired them up for the first time the difference was like night and day. Great sound and surprising bass and they can be run loud. I like them so much now I'm trying to figure out if I can jam the 7.7" versions in the place of two of them (I think that's called a left handed compliment). Really outstanding speakers.

Pros: Great sound and much better bass than you would expect

Cons: A little pricey perhaps but worth it

worth every dime

Written by: George from Alexandria, Ky on August 26, 2010

These are the best marine speakers I have ever heard. Even with the stock Sony head unit the results are out standing. I would highly reccomend these speakers to anyone. Especially those who really enjoy thier music. At first I thought they were a little expensive, but after the fact I must say they are worth every penny.

Features

Marine Tested: JL Audio's marine speakers go through ultraviolet testing chambers (to simulate years of sun exposure) and salt fog chambers (to simulate years of exposure to salt-water environments.

Woofers: The JL Audio Marine Cockpit Coaxial speaker features an injection-molded, mica-filled polypropylene cone woofer with UV inhibitors, a rubber surround and a precisely engineered dust cap profile for smooth upper-end response. The woofer uses a 1" voice coil, a marine-grade synthetic fiber spider with a progressive roll design and a vented motor structure with a marine grade stainless steel rear diffuser plate.

DMA (Dynamic Motor Analysis): DMA is JL Audio's proprietary method of improving dynamic motor behavior. The DMA-optimized long-excursion design enhances output, bass extension and power handling of the speaker.

Tweeters: The M650s feature a 1" treated silk dome tweeter with a specially formulated treatment to withstand UV and salt-spray exposure. The dome tweeter uses an oversized neodymium magnet for higher efficiency levels and is Ferrofluid-cooled and damped for improved response and power handling capabilities.

Crossover: The JL audio marine speakers utilize a true 2-way crossover network with 1st order low-pass and 2nd order high-pass circuits. The crossover network also features a polyswitch solid-state tweeter protection which prevents tweeter failures due to abuse and resets automatically. The crossover mounts directly to the polymer woofer basket, requiring no additional mounting provision.

Polymer Basket And Grille: The Centrex, UV-resistant polymer basket and grille protects the speaker's woofer, tweeter, crossover and motor structure from the marine environment.

Infinite-Baffle Operation: The JL Audio M650-CCX-CG is optimized for infinite-baffle operation so that it can be installed in a variety of locations, without the need for a dedicated enclosure.

Power Handling: JL Audio recommends two RMS power figures for this model; 75 watts continuous power handling and 25-150 recommended amplifier power. We've listed the more conservative 75 watts RMS in the specs table.

It looks like we currently carry only the White version. However, I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to see if it may be something we can get. [ Jeff  Dec 14, 2015 ]  Staff
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: JL says that the minimum power is 25 watts. Most any receiver will do the job. More power will deliver better performance, whether that's the receiver or a separate amplifier. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy  May 26, 2014 ]  Staff
