About the Wet Sounds XS-808-S

Versatile mounting options

Wet Sounds' 808 Series speakers give you powerful sound and remarkable versatility. Designed for larger boats with plenty of space for speakers, this convertible component speaker system lets you choose the best spot on your boat for its 1" titanium dome tweeters. You can mount the tweeter in the center of the 8" speaker's UV-resistant grille, or go for the classic component installation by using the included flush- or surface-mount cups. Either way, you'll get terrific sound and outstanding details, thanks to the crossover network that's integrated into the woofer's frame.

Ready for fun in the sun

Like all Wet Sounds gear, 808 Series speakers are designed to survive and thrive on the water. The woofer's frame and grille are made from Nylas, a seriously rugged nylon/fiberglass blend that can take the pounding of a long day of wake-hopping. Each speaker features a rubber spider, surround, and magnet boot for long-lasting water resistance you can count on when the weather gets rough or the spray gets high.

Features

Overview: The Wet Sounds XS-808-S marine speaker is a convertible component speaker system. The speaker has an 8" cone woofer and a 1" titanium tweeter that can be mounted coaxially, or removed and mounted as a separate component.

Nylas Frame/Grille: The speaker frames and grills are made of a composite mix of Nylon and fiberglass called Nylas, that improves the strength and durability of the speaker in the marine environment.

Tweeter: Each speaker has a 1" titanium tweeter mounted in a sealed chassis. It has a attached 6" speaker wire with a 2-pin plug. Out of the box, the tweeter is mounted coaxially to the center of the woofer grille. The tweeter is protected by its own mesh grille.

Convertibility: The tweeter can be removed from the woofer's grille and mounted separately as a component tweeter. The woofer grille is held in place by three screws under the rubber gasket, and must be removed to unplug the tweeter from the internal wiring. Flush-mount and surface mount cups are provided for mounting the tweeter. A 32" extension wire plugs into the tweeter's 6" pigtail to allow you to separate the tweeter from the woofer.

Mounting Specifications: When the tweeter is mounted separately, the mounting dimensions are as follows:

  Frame Diameter Cutout Diameter Mounting Height Mounting Depth
Flush Mount 2.4" 1.885" 0.5" 1.05"
Surface Mount 2.47" N/A 1.23" 0.33"
(screw depth)

Customer Q&A

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
Google price for great quality. [ Paul  Nov 22, 2017 ]
A
Wet Sounds is the speaker of choice on the lakes around here for serious audio. I will mount these under cabin roof outside to complement a set of Icon 8s. [ Keith  Sep 21, 2017 ]

Q
Do you need these in a box or can they be open air?
[ JoTom  Apr 16, 2018 ]

A
Mounted them in place of some 6.5 polk in a boat. Yes, open air. They are power hungry, don't bother with them unless you put 200 watts per channel to them. Great price! Great service!
[ CALE  Apr 17, 2018 ]
A
I installed 4 of these in a Bennington pontoon, all open air and they work great!!!
[ Bennie  Apr 16, 2018 ]
A
Open air is fine.
