JL Audio MX10IB3-CG-WH

Built for life on the water

Built from the ground up for the marine environment, the MX10IB3-CG-WH sports a corrosion-resistant Centrex® polymer basket that surrounds the sub's internal structure for extra protection. The marine-grade synthetic fiber spider, injection-molded polypropylene cone, and synthetic rubber surround provide top performance, while shrugging off the corrosive effects of sun, salt, and moisture. The UV-resistant polymer basket encases and protects the entire structure, plus UV protection ensures that the grilles will stay white, looking factory-fresh even after years of sun exposure.

Designed for a variety of enclosures

This subwoofer's motor structure allows extended cone movement, so you'll hear bass that's loud and low, yet precise and smooth. The versatile MX10IB3-CG-WH works in sealed enclosures, but it also works well in free-air applications, so you can mount it directly into a bulkhead if there's no space for a box.

Product Highlights:

  • 10" 4-ohm marine subwoofer
  • injection-molded mica-filled polypropylene woofer with synthetic rubber surround
  • Centrex polymer basket and grille, with stainless steel back plate
  • gold-plated, marine-grade brass binding posts
  • marine-grade synthetic fiber spider
  • works in sealed boxes and free air applications
  • power range: 50-175 watts RMS (350 watts peak power)

  • warranty: 2 years
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The sub sounds OK, not much better than the Clarion it replaced. It rattles when cranked up at times and the screws are tight. It seems to be the grille but I can't say for sure. It would be nice if the speaker had a thin rubber seal mounted between the speaker and the boat fiberglass to provide dampening. Wanted the 250W sub but it was too deep. Also the sub did not include a template which I had to make. The 4 MX 650 speakers I purchased earlier came with a template.



MX10IB3 subwoofer

MX10IB3 subwoofer from Summerville, SC on 5/29/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This sub rocks, handles the hits I give it with 0 distortion and great response times for the lows, as in ruuuumbles, wake ripples, etc. You get the idea. Running 6 MX 650 CCX speakers hooked up to the JL AUDIO M600/6 amp, The MX10IB3 subwoofer is hooked up to the JL AUDIO M200/2 amp, all backed by the Clarion M505 head unit. This complete system ROCKS clarity, highs, mids, lows, and outstanding vocals. Put this in and you will be the envy of anyone listening.

Pros: Quality built product, lives up to the name for marine use.

Cons: Zero, none, if you have one it will be you pay for what you get. Quality

Sea Ray Sub

Todd from Holland, MI on 5/3/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought this sub to replace a blown no name sub. Sounds great but need to be careful with the volume on tunes with heavy bass. If a tune has too much bass the sub "drowns out" and won't recover until the volume is turned down and the woofer stops moving.

Pros: Sounds great. Great price.

Cons: Can't really handle loud volume heavy bass.

BowRider from Louisiana on 5/20/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Was hesitant to go with the IB3 instead of the IB5 but the JL700/5 amp I am running puts out 180 at 4ohms> not enough to really push the IB5 so I went with this one. Have to say I am very pleased. I got alot more punch than I was expecting. This is very nice sub and definetly add some much needed bass to my system.

Pros: Clean Look, Rugged Build


Marine Installation.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Mounted topside in a bulkhead wall. Quality appears excellent - would be nice to have the opportunity for a review in 12mo. But for now, very happy. Driving with a JBLM200/2 amp mounted inside main cabin.

Good; but i thought the bass could be a little crisper.




Hands-on research

Product Research


Marine Tested: JL Audio's marine subwoofers go through ultraviolet testing chambers (to simulate years of sun exposure) and salt fog chambers (to simulate years of exposure to salt-water environments) and are built to withstand the rigors of marine use.

Woofer: The subwoofer features an injection-molded, mica-filled polypropylene cone woofer with a synthetic rubber surround specifically formulated for marine use.

DMA (Dynamic Motor Analysis): JL Audio's proprietary Dynamic Motor Analysis (DMA) technology results in ultra-linear motor force over a long range of excursion and a wide range of power inputs to reduce distortion and improve sound quality.

Infinite-Baffle Operation: The M10IB3 is optimized for infinite-baffle operation so that it can be installed in a variety of locations, without the need for a dedicated enclosure.

Polymer Basket And Grille: The polymer basket and grille are corrosion and UV-resistant, and the basket encapsulates the motor assembly to prevent corrosion.

Connections: The speaker terminals are 0.25" wide gold-plated, marine-grade brass, male quick slide connections.

Mounting Hardware: Marine-grade stainless-steel mounting screws and washers are included.

Box Type: If mounting in an enclosure, JL Audio recommends a 2.5 ft³ sealed box (2.0 ft³ minimum). The M10IB3 should not be mounted in a ported enclosure.

Grille: The woofer is shipped with the grille attached (using three screws). The grille can be removed, but the woofer can be installed without removing the grille. If the woofer is mounted without the grille, several measurements are different:

  • Mounting Height: changes from 1.469" to 0.791"
  • Flange Height: changes from 1.065" to 0.5"
  • Frame Diameter: changes from 10.734" to 10.382"
