JL Audio M10IB5-CG-WH
M Series 10" marine subwoofer with white "Classic Grille" — designed for free-air applications
Our take on the JL Audio M10IB5-CG-WH by Crutchfield's Ken Nail
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.
All JL marine subwoofers are made in the USA
Nice sound but no template for install! replaced one that was on the boat.

1 question already asked
1 answer What would be the best 10" JL Marine sub woofer to use in a 35 Marlago Center Console Boat if mounting on the side where it is not fully enclosed but somewhat enclosed between the space between the hull and the innershell? The one rated for Free Air/Enclosed or the Free air only? [ Raymond Sigwart Feb 02, 2017 ]
