Overview

Our take on the JL Audio M10IB5-CG-WH

Built from the ground up for the marine environment, the M10IB5-CG-WH features a corrosion-resistant polymer basket that seals off 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.

JL Audio Built In USA Great bass on your boat

The M10IB5-CG-WH 10" marine subwoofer reflects JL Audio's commitment to top-quality engineering and sound quality. Its sparkling white finish and "Classic Grille" design make it a perfect match for many boat interiors.

Built for life on the water

Built from the ground up for the marine environment, the M10IB5-CG-WH features a corrosion-resistant polymer basket that seals off 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, and as an added bonus the UV protection ensures the grilles will stay white, looking factory-fresh even after years of sun exposure.

Mount it almost anywhere

The subwoofer's motor structure allows extended cone movement, so you'll hear bass that's loud and low, yet precise and smooth. JL Audio designed the M10IB5-CG-WH for "free-air" applications, so you don't have to put it in a box to enjoy great-sounding bass. You can mount the M10IB5-CG-WH in a bulkhead, storage compartment, or wherever you have the space for it.

Features

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 JL Audio Marine 10" subwoofer features an injection-molded, mica-filled polypropylene cone woofer with a synthetic rubber surround specifically formulated for marine duty. The woofer uses a vented motor design with a marine-grade stainless steel rear diffuser plate and a marine-grade synthetic fiber spider with a progressive roll design.

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 JL Audio M10IB5-CG-WH 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 Centrex, UV-resistant polymer basket and grille are corrosion and UV-resistant which help protect the woofer and encapsulates the motor assembly to prevent corrosion.

Connections: The 10" marine woofer is equipped with gold-plated, marine-grade brass connection terminals.

Mounting Hardware: The woofer comes supplied with marine-grade, stainless-steel mounting screws and washers.
