Wet Sounds RECON 6-BG
6-1/2" 2-way marine speakers (Black with Open Grille)
Our take on the Wet Sounds RECON 6-BG by Crutchfield's Jon Paul
Excellent sound in the outdoors
These powerful RECON 6-1/2" marine speakers from Wet Sounds will bring big sound and bold style to your boat or off-road vehicle. Performance is no problem, thanks to injection-molded composite cones and 3/4" aluminum tweeters. The open grille design is UV-resistant and built tough, so you'll enjoy great performance for seasons to come.
Built for boating
When it comes to outdoor-friendly gear, you'd expect a company with "Wet" in its name to know a thing or two. And these speakers are further proof that Wet Sounds really knows marine audio. Their exclusive Nylas™ (a combination of nylon and fiberglass) speaker frames and grilles are tough enough to withstand the elements, while durable rubber spiders and surrounds provide long-lasting protection.

Nylas Basket and Grille: Both the speaker frame and grille are made of Nylas, a composite mix of Nylon and Fiberglass, providing strength and stability. The grilles are held in place by four screws, accessible under the mounting gasket, but the tweeter is mounted to the grille, so it should not be removed.
Rubber Spider: Durability is further improved by the rubber spider Wet Sounds developed for their marine speakers.
Tweeters: The tweeters are mounted to the grilles, rather than to a pole piece, thus there is no chance of water leaking through the woofer cone.
Speaker Terminals: A male 2-pin waterproof SuperSeal plug is on the signal input wire, which connects to the included female SuperSeal harnesses. The red wire is positive and the black wire is negative.
Size: These speakers fit into the openings for standard 6½ and 6¾ speakers (standard car speaker sizes). Because the frame is bigger than a typical car speaker and the grille is not designed to be removed, they won't fit in most car applications.

1 question already asked
While these can be mounted in an open air environment, they don't have an enclosure behind them and won't sound like they should. It's recommended to surface mount them into a spot that seals off the back side. That can be in a small enclosure or one big enough to be called a free air enclosure.
