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.

Available in Black or Silver.

Loud and clear!

Crutchfield customer from Lafayette, LA on 8/13/2019

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Great speakers. Fit in the cutout replacing factory 5.25" components. Running 4 on a 70w RMS capable JBL amp and Jensen head unit and these speakers are LOUD AND CLEAR! Decent bass response as well, but will be adding a sub soon.

Great sound at an acceptable price

Crutchfield customer from Wilmington, NC on 6/19/2019

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Installed these in the rear of a 23' CC Sea Hunt used in a salt environment. They replaced a pair of 6.5" JBL speakers that were rotted through. The sound is excellent and fills the rear of the boat with good highs and acceptable lows. The tweeter appears to be sealed and the wire runs across from one of the grate spokes. Came with a pigtail connector and a rubber gasket to seal against a flat surface, should be durable. I did heat shrink and used marine liquid glue on the connectors to seal out salt and water. Big thanks to Jess at Crutchfield for helping me select these, have not disappointed and hope to have them last many boating seasons!

Awesome speakers

Crutchfield customer from Royse City, TX on 5/12/2019

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

These speakers sound great. Super clear sound and look fantastic.

Pros: Sound quality, looks, huge improvement from stock speakers

Cons: Didn't fit the original holes of old speakers so I had to drill new ones. Not a big deal just unnerving drilling holes in a new boat

Product Research

Features

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.

Q
With wet sound 6 1/2 recon 6-b6 can it be mounted in open air like the jl audio ones?
[ Ken  Oct 19, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
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.
