Hertz HMX 8
8" 2-way marine speakers
Our take on the Hertz HMX 8 by Crutchfield's Jon Paul
Hertz designed these 8" marine speakers to bring high-quality audio to any boat. They'll handle up to 100 watts RMS, so they'll be able to cut through the noise from your engine and the wind. They're made for max volume, with a big magnet, a polypropylene cone, and a tweeter lens that optimizes off-axis dispersion. And, because they don't require an enclosure, you can install them in just about any suitable location.
Built to last
The speaker basket and grille are made from a rugged, UV-resistant polymer that stands up to water, dust, and mud, while the stainless-steel mesh grille protects the tweeter from both dirt and damage. The Aramid fiber spider, silicone-insulated leads, and Santoprene rubber surround will help keep these durable speakers performing at a high level for years to come.
When you think of Italian cars, you think of style, performance, and awesome sound. Same goes for Italian audio gear. Hertz speakers, subs, and amps have made car systems sound super since 1998. Known for great sound and technological innovation, high-end gear from Hertz will bring powerful performance audio to any vessel.
