Big sound for the water or the woods

Outstanding 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.

Powerful performers

When it comes to big sound, it's the little things that make a difference. These XL-52SS 5-1/4" 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 durable polypropylene woofer cones handle 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.

Awesome in the outdoors

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.

Choose 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.

Q
Will these direct mount to replace old rv speakers that are 5.25 also?
[ Shane  Mar 11, 2018 ]

A
I replaced some exterior Jensen 5.25" speakers. They used the same 4 holes as the old speakers. Had to bend the wire posts to get to fit hole but other that that, was a direct replacement. Major problem now is the exterior speakers sound better than interior. Fix one problem to cause another. Crutchfield is and was only place to go-to for these speakers.
[ LEE  Mar 11, 2018 ]
Q
what is the bottom mounting depth of this speaker?
[ blake  Feb 25, 2018 ]

I was able to find a copy of the manual for these speakers where they list the bottom-mounting depth on these speakers as 2.06" My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101
