Excellent upgrade for my 22' Hurricane Sundeck

Crutchfield customer from N Ft Myers, FL on 5/7/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

My 22' Hurricane Sundeck came with a 4 Sony speaker system. Sounded okay when anchored but completely washed out sound when underway. I started looking into replacement speakers and checked out the research and user reviews on Crutchfield and determined that the JL Audio MX-650 best met my requirements and price point. Also bumped up my head unit to a more powerful (50 Watt RMS per channel) unit with bluetooth, installed it all a couple of days ago, and man what a difference! Much cleaner sound, crisp lows, highs, and mids, and very little tweaking required on the head unit. I'll sea test it some more over the next few weeks to determine whether I want to add a JL Audio amp as well!

I was replacing a couple nearly two year old camper speakers that weren't up to the job. After searching, these looked to be the best pick but I knew they'd take too much depth-room and I'd have to make a space ring out of some old plastic sheeting. After a major hassle the rings were made, everything fit and the speakers sounded great AFTER they were in place. But those homemade trim ring need more love because they weren't a perfect circle. And then while cleaning up, I found the template needed in the box the speakers were shipped in. Oh well, I'll make proper rings soon. Thanks Crutchfield!

6.5" JL Audio Speakers Rock!

Brian from Evanston, IL on 8/23/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

After extensive research, I decided to go with these JL Audio speakers. I had purchased some lower end Sony speakers and plugged them in to test them out. I then connected the JL Audio speakers and the difference was astonishing. I had to add a 1/2" spacer on the port speaker to allow the massive magnets to fit in next to the manual bilge pump. I'm glad I upgraded and am confident I will get years of enjoyment out of these speakers n

Pros: Ease of installation, quality construction. Good looking and great sounding.

AWESOME SOUND

John from Orange, CT on 8/3/2018

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

These speakers are top notch, so much better than my Wet Sounds that they replaced. You can't go wrong, I couldn't justify the extra $ for the "M" series but I couldn't be happier with these in a Marine Environment.

Pros: Top Notch, simply outstanding. The quality and build for the marine environment is A+ Sound quality when backed up by the JL AMPS was exceptional

Cons: No Cons just that I didn't get to experience the M series but at twice the cost I don't think I'm missing anything.

Replaced original speakers with JL

Bob from Jackson, NH on 6/26/2017

I replaced the original speakers on my sailing sloop Endurance with the JL. During the installation I needed to drill new set screw locations and solder new wire tabs. On 1st power-up I noticed a cleaner hi end response, the low end was the same. The SPL for these speakers was the same as original but required less power. Time will tell on the durability but great looking and sounding speakers that are made in the USA.

Probably the best 6.5" marine speakers you can buy. JL never fails with quality equipment. Replaced my old Sony speakers and these blow them out of the water. Powered by a small Marine Fusion amp with a BT Fusion Receiver and they have plenty of sound for the boat! You can always add a larger amplifier but I can hear my music even at wide open throttle with a 2 stroke 60 hp. Buy them and don't look back!

Pros: Great speakers Clean sound Good range Handle a lot of power

Cons: None

Love these speakers! Replaced stock marine speakers on my pontoon and what a difference even with the 17 rms watt head unit. Swapped that out too with the new Sony MEX 40 rms watt/channel receiver because I didn't want to mess with an external amp and all the battery those things draw. I am not disappointed, all the volume and clarity I need. Here's my opinion.... If you have room and extra money/per speaker, go with the 770's. I had read that they had a fuller sound and better bass and they were right! Those speakers rock. I'm glad I bought at least 2 of them. I imagine the M series are even better, but at half the price these MX series do everything I'll ever need.

Pros: Loud and clear. Great reputation.

Cons: None

Easy Install, Great Sound

G C I from Ft. Myers, Florida on 5/1/2015

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

After reading a bunch of other reviews, I decided to give these a try. By using the rewards program, I got them shipped for under $100 and installed them this afternoon. We just bought a Sun Tracker 20' pontoon boat outfitted for saltwater fishing in the backwaters of the Gulf of Mexico, and while the OEM speakers were adequate, the JL Audio MX-650 was a huge improvement. For me, there were no holes to drill as everything lined up nicely with the existing holes - old speaker came out, new speaker went in. I used a bit driver, but went slowly and carefully to insure a tight fit, using the provided screws and washers. The install was easy enough - if you're reasonably handy with a screwdriver or bit driver, you Can do this yourself. Read the directions, then hook 'em up. I took the old speakers out, noting that one speaker wire terminal was smaller than the other. This worked out great for me as the JL Audio speakers use different sized "spade" connections, so there was no guess-work involved when it came time to reconnect the OEM speaker wiring......small spade goes to the tweeter, big spade goes to the woofer......Bam! I connected the iPod and put some Jimmy Buffet tunes through these, and the difference in sound quality was immediate and gratifying. These speakers like to have a bit of power behind them to really bring out the rich flavor of the music that I'd been missing with the cheap, paper-coned speakers of yesterday, so crank 'em up !

Pros: Excellent price, super fast shipping, two year warranty, and easy install.

Cons: Haven't discovered any yet.

I installed 4 of these on a 20' boat open fisherman and it's sounds awesome. I had 4 fusions with stock radio sounded ok. I installed 4 JL's with a sony 600 watt amp and I can't ask for better quality. I play it all day with never worrying about amp heating up or speakers going bad.

Pretty Good But Not Blown Away

GlenC from Dameron, MD on 10/2/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

These speakers replaced the junk OEM, no name, outside speakers in my 3-year-old Lagoon catamaran. The MX650's were installed in the OEM locations which provide more than enough air space behind them and they are driven by a new, high-end Fusion marine stereo. They sound pretty good but they didn't blow me away as I had expected from the rave reviews - in fact they sound kind of flat. By comparison, the 5-inch OEM no name speakers inside the salon have a fuller sound with better highs at all volume levels. The Fusion audio is set to max for bass and treble, half for mid-range, and I can independently control the volume to each of the two speaker zones. For further comparison, the 5-inch Polk speakers I recently installed in my GMC Sierra C3 sound MUCH better with deeper bass, better highs, and overall fuller and more accurate sound with only the factory radio.

Pros: Should be weather resistant and hopefully last longer than the OEM speakers.

Cons: I'm a little disappointed in the sound quality.

I purchased these speakers for my boat after hearing a pair on a buddy's boat. Mine are mounted in the radar arch and it isn't deep enough for the speakers. I called one of the Crutchfield advisors and explained the problem to him and asked if I could make a spacer to hold the speaker out a half inch and he said it would work just fine. He was super helpful and I will recommend the team to anyone. The only thing I did differently was to use a cutting board to make the spacer . It worked great.

Pros: Great sound next to my house and I hope to try them out going across the water soon.

Cons: Only time will tell.

These are great! They live up to the JL name. I replaced the stock speakers on my Starcraft RT tent trailer and they sound amazing in comparison. I will be replacing the two 5 1/2" on the inside soon and I will be using JL's as well.

Pros: Great clear sound

Excellent Speaers

Big Kahuna from Philadelphia, PA on 6/14/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

We are weekend boaters and decided to upgrade the original Sony sound system we've had for several years. I read reviews on the JLMX650 speakers which convinced me to purchase them. Overall, excellent buy as I could not be more pleased with the sound and quality you get in JL. The speakers fit into the existing speaker holes but I had to drill new holes to secure as well as replace a couple of clips but all very easy to do. Turned on the music and the sound was everything I expected and then some. Clear distinct and powerful is the best way I can describe my initial reaction. I was considering adding an amp and subwoofer but not necessary as the clarity & depth is that good. Also, another feature worth mentioning is the construction is solid. The fact they're made in the USA was another selling feature. Also, JL comes with a two year warranty versus the normal one year. You might find less expensive speakers but you won't find better quality for the money.

Pros: Excellent Sound, Solid Construction,

Cons: Wish holes to secure speakers were universal but can't put this on JL..

I replaced my stock Clarion speakers with the JL Audio MX650 after I tested a pair on display at a local marine store. they fit right in to the existing holes in my boat. As soon as I turned the stereo on, I could hear an immediate difference. They sound so much better than the stock Clarions; I need another pair now!

Pros: Perfect stock replacement/upgrade. Much cleaner, louder sound. Sound even better with an amplifier pushing them.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Ordered at 4:30 on Monday, arrived on Tuesday's UPS truck. Great Service. Very easy 6 1/2 inch replacement of 10 year old worn out Sony speakers in boat's arch. 5 inch existing mounting hole was perfect to fit new speakers; only had to drill 4 new screw holes -- easy and straight forward.

Pros: Excellent sound -- surprisingly crisp sound with very good bass response. Radio "loudness" on and slight bass bias on tone control seemed good for my taste. (Using a Pioneer DEH-P5200HD 50watt/channel receiver)

Cons: Slightly larger lug on speaker for existing wire connectors. No problem removing old connectors and crimping new ones of correct size with marine hardware from my tool kit.

Very good speakers! Not as good as I think the M650-CCX would be... but couldn't part with double the money. I hooked a powerful MTX amp to it and am running four of the MX-650's on a 19 foot center console. Had to adjust the amp down so I don't blow the JL's but it's a loud as it reasonably needs to be. Hope to add a Bazooka sub soon.

Pros: Loud, clear, good bass. American made. Two year warranty.

Cons: Will top out pretty quickly.

Full sound from a small package

NickH from Lake of the Ozarks on 5/4/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Crutchfield rep told me these would be a significant upgrade over the Sony marine speakers that were installed on my boat. They fit the same cutout, but the holes were slightly different - no problem - simple drilling. The clips where the speaker wire attached were larger than those on my boat, so I did have to install new ends on the speaker wire before they would connect to these speakers. After I installed the first pair, I turned on the stereo. Already, I could listen to the JL Audio pair versus the Sony's and hear the difference. Finished up the 2nd and 3rd pair installation and then fired it up. The sound is crisp, the base deep, and I would describe it as a Full Sound. I was not out running full speed, but there is clearly an upgrade from my previous speakers. I would say they are well worth the money. And they look great!

Pros: Sound is full, base deep, tone super. Fit in the same cutouts as my other 6 1/2 speakers. Not deep, so no worries about hitting the gunwale. Look sharp.

Cons: Have larger connection posts, so I had to clip and reattach new clips on the speaker wires before I could connect them.

Great Speakers for Jeep Wrangler

Matt from Tampa, FL on 4/21/2014

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought 2 pairs of these for my 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. 2 in the dash and two in the overhead bar and paired with JL Audio M400/4 and the stock head unit. The speakers sound great. The marine speakers are designed for open air sound, so they're great for the jeep with the top down. Time will tell how they stand up to the elements, but I'd highly recommend.

Pros: Great sound, loud and clear, sounds great with the top down

Cons: Lack on the lower end when installed without a lot of room/air behind the speaker (as in the Jeep). Still sound great, but not a lot of low or mid-low power.

Great sounding speakers. Haven't had much time to use them since mounting 2 weeks ago but great so far. I have only 2 complaints. I replaced a pair of PolyPlanar 6.5" speakers, that didn't last, with these 6.5" speakers. The 4 mounting screw holes were advertised to fit the same holes on standard 6.5" marine speakers. They didn't. I drilled new ones. The wire tabs were larger than the connectors on the existing speaker wire so I had to replace those on the wire with the new size. No big deal since I already had several sizes at home. The warranty is 2 years, which is one reason I spent a little more money for these hoping they'll last longer.

Pros: Great Sound! Look good. Appear more durable.

Cons: Mounting holes not as advertised. Wire connector tabs larger than standard.

Used the JL MX650 to replace the stock speakers in the arch of my cruiser. This is a quality product right out of the box. Fit and finish is excellent. The power handling and superior sound quality is without question. A nice start to a total rebuild of a stock marine system.

Pros: Grille design is classy, blends well with cruiser scheme. Excellent sound quality.

Cons: mounting depth was an issue with my installation, but I knew that going in. I fabricated a set of spacers and all is well.

Recently replaced the two rear Alpine marine speakers with the JL Audio speakers and I had no idea how much I was missing. I'm not one of your techno audiophiles, I just know what sounds good to me and what I like, and I love these speakers. A week later, I ordered a second pair for the front of the boat. So, if you see some old guy rock'n in a pontoon with the music cranked up, that's me and my new JL Audio speakers. Just an FYI, the new Polk amp and sub helped a lot too!

Pros: Great value, takes unbelievable power, sound range/tone just blows you away

Cons: None. Wish I had installed this years ago. Just don't let your wife see the credit card bill....

Have a pair hooked up in a 28ft cruiser in the radar arch. They are connected to a DB Drive amp getting close to 120 watts each and they sound great. They look like they will stand up to the elements because of their design. The JL speakers are replacing Memphis which sounded good but fell apart after two years because of the exposure to uv, etc. The JL fit great in the OEM holes.

my first JL Audio speakers...but not my last!!!

Jesse C. from Clear Lake Shores, TX on 5/25/2013

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

It took me a long time to decide on which speakers to put in my boat, which didn't have a stereo or speakers before this, but thanks to a few guys there at Crutchfield and a lot of reviews and input from assorted audiophiles I went with these. As everyone has said, they are awesome. I don't think I have ever had auto speakers that sounded this good. These speakers are designed for centerconsole space and sound great. It was recommended that I get another set and an amp because the speakers wouldn't sound good without them but I can tell you they sound great without it. Not that I am not going to get an amp and another set of speakers, maybe the next size up in this series, but until then I am happy as hell with them. The first day we took the boat out with the new stereo/speakers we listened for six hours with no problem, even going 40 mph in the wind with my wife sitting in the front of the console she could hear them loud and clear. I positioned them so that they hit the sides, gunwales I think they are called and bounce the sound to the front and back of the boat. I paired them with an Alpine CDE-134HD which I put in a Polyplanar box on the dash and it works great and sounds even better. My next add-ons will be the JL Audio MX770-CCX-CG-WH and a Kicker ZXM350.4 with the speakers positioned to the back of the boat.

Pros: The great help from the guys at Crutchfield. Ease of installation. Sound Sound Sound.

More details on the JL Audio MX650-CCX-CG-WH

Product Research

Features

Marine Tested: JL Audio's marine speakers are built to exceed industry standards for Salt-Fog and UV exposure. They are exposed to ultraviolet testing chambers to simulate years of sun exposure, and salt fog chambers to simulate years of exposure to salt-water environments. Corrosion and UV-resistant materials are used throughout.

Woofers: The MX650-CCX-CG-WH speakers feature injection-molded, mica-filled polypropylene cone woofers with UV inhibitors, synthetic rubber surrounds, and precisely engineered dust cap profiles for smooth upper-end response. The woofers also use marine-grade synthetic fiber spiders with a progressive roll design to withstand high humidity.

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 speakers feature 3/4" silk dome tweeters with a specially formulated treatment to withstand UV and salt-spray exposure. The dome tweeter uses a neodymium magnet for higher efficiency levels and is Ferrofluid-cooled and damped for improved response and power handling capabilities.

Crossover: The tweeters use 2nd order (12 dB/oct) crossovers with solid-state tweeter protection to prevent tweeter failure.

Polymer Basket And Grille: The specifically engineered polymer baskets are corrosion and UV-resistant and encapsulate the woofer's motor system to prevent corrosion.

Infinite-Baffle Operation: The speakers are designed for infinite-baffle operation and can be installed in a variety of locations, without the need for a dedicated enclosure. The woofer is optimized to operate with a large volume of air behind it (at least 2 cubic feet); operating in less space will compromise low frequency performance.

Q
I have a 07 Silverado quad cab with the typical door seal problem that causes water to enter. I was wondering if it would be feasible to put these in place of the door speakers?
[ Kevin  Jun 18, 2019 ]

Thank you for your question, Keyin. The JL Audio MX650-CCX-CG-WH marine speakers are designed for boats that have a large mounting depth space available. Since there are mounting depth restrictions for your Silverado, there will likely be some sizing problems there. We do have other marine grade speakers that could be beneficial to you. We also carry speaker baffles that will give you some added protection your speakers. Chat with an Advisor online, or give us a call at 1-800-324-9695, they will be able to find the best set of speakers for your application, as well as get you set up with some added protection just in case you were to need it.

they are ment for boats that always have water issues so I believe they would be fine. they have great sound. just check the diameter of your opening to make sure they'll fit
[ David  Jun 20, 2019 ]
A
I would say yes. I have 8 of these speakers on my pontoon boat and even after getting caught in the rain multiple times, they still work perfectly

Q
Can the grilles be painted. White to tan?
[ Paul  Dec 28, 2016 ]
1 answer
A
The grills are not made to accept paint, no. They are made of a corrosion/UV resistant polymer material. You can get them with the Sport grills: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_136MX650SW/item.html Or the "Titanium Sport Grills": http://www.crutchfield.com/p_13691939/item.html While I know this isn't the answer you were looking for, I hope the information helps.

Q
Will these fit in a radar arch I have a 26.8 four winns vista?
[ Fourwinns  Jun 18, 2015 ]
1 answer
A
This item is too deep for most Radar Arches, you need to use an extension mounting rings between the arch and the speaker mounting surface. I fabricated a pair from MDF then coated them with resin then painted white, they look and work great. Plastic rings are also available from Crutchfield.. BTW.. these speakers sound great..

Q
Are these speakers available with black grilles?
[ Steve  Jun 11, 2015 ]
3 answers
A
Yes! But not here that I know of. The Mfg # MX650-CCX-CG-TB (I have seen them at another place)
[ Paul  Oct 13, 2015 ]
A
No. Not that I'm aware of.
[ Bob  Jun 12, 2015 ]
A
They are available in white and dark grey. You would have to purchase the grey from JL audio directly. I wanted to buy the grey from Crutchfield but they do not sell that color any longer. Excellent speakers btw.

Q
Greetings, will these speakers fit 2011 harley davidson ultra limiteds bat wing fairing and rear speaker pods on the tour pack?
[ Mark McBride  Aug 17, 2014 ]
1 answer
A
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: Unfortunately, we don't have any research on a 2011 Harley Davidson Ultra Limited fairing, we just have research on the fairing of the 2011 Road Glide and Street Glide. Only speakers that can be bottom mounted fit into the 2011 Steet Glide and Road Glide fairing, so if the Ultra Limited's faring is similar then the JL Audio MX650-CCX wouldn't work, because the MX650-CCX can only be top mounted. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
