I have been using these 8" speakers for around a year now and they are amazing! I wish i could swap the other 4 speakers in my boat to these 8" versions but had to settle for the 6.5" version of these JBL's (also great). The sound is fantastic!. The bass is STRONG! If you are debating on adding a subwoofer or updating the speakers, these may give you enough bass without needing the sub. I get plenty of deep bass and strong hitting lows with these. I have them run off of the rear channel of a JBL marine amp MA704 and I believe I could put even more power to these and push more bass if I wanted. I have one installed in an area of my boat that gets heavy traffic and the speaker gets kicked and dripped on and I have had no issues. It takes a beating and keeps pounding. My only knock is that they send Allen head screws for installation and not Stainless phillips heads but that's just me personal preference for simplicity. These speakers look great, sound even better and are priced at a great value!
Pros: Great Bass, great sound, sleek design, clean look, customization with orange or grey JBL badges, very durable
Cons: Installation with allen screw heads not phillips head
