Our take on the JL Audio M650-CCX

by Ken Nail
JL Audio

For outstanding sound in your boat

Get more out of your maritime music experience with high-performance JL Audio marine speakers. The M650-CCX 6-1/2" marine speakers combine durable, marine-ready design with outstanding sound reproduction. You can mount them in your boat's cockpit or bulkhead walls, either as stand-alones or in conjunction with a subwoofer.

Sizing info

Built for marine conditions

speaker parts

These rugged speakers deliver powerful output that'll cut through the combination of wind, water, and engine noise. Super-light neodymium magnets drive the woofer motor, moving a weatherproof cone suspended in a durable synthetic rubber surround.

The UV-resistant polymer basket encases and protects the entire structure, and as an added bonus the UV protection ensures the grilles will stay white and look factory-fresh, even after years of sun exposure.


No compromises on sound quality

Rear view of speaker

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.

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 aimed at improving dynamic motor behavior. The DMA-optimized long-excursion design enhances output, bass extension and power handling of the speaker.

Tweeters: The Marine Cockpit Coaxial speaker features 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-WH  is optimized for infinite-baffle operation so that it can be installed in a variety of locations, without the need for a dedicated enclosure.

worth every dime

Written By George, Alexandria, Ky on Thursday, 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.
