MB Quart NH1-116LB
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Great speakers at a real good price.
MB Quart's NH1-116LB marine speakers bring an awful lot to the party. The compression horn design means massive sound, the built-in LED lights add style, and the marine-rated design ensures that the party will go on and on. Designed for boating or powersports applications, these powerful full-range 6-1/2" speakers combine outstanding audio performance with outdoor-ready reliability.
Compression horn designs dramatically improve speaker efficiency. And this is the fun kind of efficiency – it means it takes less amp power to produce more usable volume throughout the frequency spectrum. In other words, you can crank these speakers up and hear it all – highs, lows, and mids.
LED lights are just cool, and these speakers give you practically limitless color choices. Enjoy steady light, a strobe effect, or programmed "light shows" – the choice is yours. You'll need MB Quart's N1-RC remote (sold separately) to control the lighting system and to sync multiple LED speakers.
The 1" titanium dome tweeters, polypropylene cones, and built-in compression horns give you smooth response and seriously impressive volume. The voice coil is made from high temperature copper and wound on a Kapton former, so it's light, powerful, and durable.
These speakers are vented front and rear, so air passes through the spider and the back plate to exchange air over the voice coil. As a result, they stay cool when they're being pushed hard. There's also a built-in crossover, so you'll hear a smooth transition between high and low frequencies – not irritating distortion.
The UV-resistant cones are attached to the frame with durable butyl rubber surrounds and stabilized with woven fiber composite spiders that resist weather-and temperature related degradation.
These MB Quart speakers will perform in extreme conditions, with water-resistant components and super-strong composite baskets, magnet covers and grilles. The exterior surfaces are coated with special UV-resistant paint that stands up to broiling sunlight. Inside, the crossover network is conformal-coated to protect against fresh and salt water spray, not to mention dust and sand. In fact, your MB Quart speakers are IPX67-rated, which means they meet the highest standards of weather resistance.
Three decades of marine and powersports audio expertise goes into MB Quart audio gear. These rugged, high-quality receivers, speakers, amps, and subs provide great sound and rugged, all-weather reliability. The MB Quart "Life Shield" badge means your gear has been designed and tested to stand up to the toughest conditions on the water or off the beaten path.

Coincident Mounted Compression Horn: In addition to increasing efficiency, the coincidentally mounted woofer and tweeter create a single point source with a unified magnetic structure, allowing all musical energy across the frequency band to come from a single focal point within the transducer. This improves the directionality of the speaker system.
Wavelength Transparent Acoustic Lens: The size and spacing of the perforations in the waveguide (part of the grille) are engineered to allow midrange frequencies to pass through, while remaining firm to guide the high frequency waves from the compression driver, to improve SPL and the sound stage. This technology also eliminates shadowing, which can occur with high SPL standard cones.
LED Illumination: Integrated into the back of each grille is an LED light assembly, to create a glow on the woofer cone. A 12 volt power supply is needed to turn the LEDs on and they are controlled using MB Quart's wireless N1-RC remote (item number 049N1RC, sold separately).
Grilles: Each grille is held in place by two screws, and while they can be removed, the LEDs and acoustic lens are removed at the same time, deleting the light feature and altering the sound output. Thus the grilles should not be removed.
