Made for your boat, car, or powersports vehicle

Impressive sound doesn't have to cost a ton of money. If you're looking to upgrade the audio on your boat, ATV, side-by-side, or golf cart, PowerBass speakers have the performance you want and the toughness you need, all at a price you'll like.

Small speakers, big sound

These 4" speakers feature oversized 1" Mylar dome tweeters with a special diffuser, so they deliver clear, crisp highs. A unique "trampoline" gasket hugs the tweeter pole and protects the voice coil from the elements, The woofer cones are made from durable polypropylene that handles the lows and the weather with equal aplomb, while the powder-coated steel baskets, gold-plated input terminals and durable mounting gaskets ensure that these speakers will give you season after season of rockin' performance. The 3-ohm impedance safely gives you a little extra punch from these speakers, whether your powering them with a radio or an amp.

Tough enough for outdoor fun

The folks at PowerBass know that the great outdoors is a tough environment for speakers. Enjoying an "adult toy" can get very noisy, so the speakers have to perform. They also need to withstand moisture, dirt, heat, cold, and blazing sunlight. That's why PowerBass designs their speakers to stand up to whatever you're going to get into.

Two sets of grilles to suit your style

The package also includes both black and white aluminum mesh grilles, so you can get the look you like on any boat or powersports vehicle.

Product Research

Features

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. If mounted in an enclosure, from 0.2 ft³ to 0.5 ft³ is recommended.

Mounting Location: These speakers must be installed at least 3 feet (1-meter) away from any electromagnetic nautical equipment (compass, sonar, etc).

Grilles: Two pair of grilles are included; choose black or white.

4/2 Hole Compatibility: Most 4" factory speakers use four mounting screws, however, in some vehicles, only two are used. The XL-42SS's mounting tabs can be removed, allowing installation in 4-hole or 2-hole applications. Care should be taken handling the speaker after any tabs are removed because the broken edges may be sharp. While these speakers will fit in some cars, the tweeter is taller than most speakers designed for car use, therefore they don't fit behind the factory grille in most car installations. Please enter your vehicle information to confirm fit.
