JL Audio MX650-CCX-CG-WH

Made for marine use

These rugged speakers deliver powerful output that'll cut through the combination of wind, water, and engine noise. The weatherproof cone is suspended in a durable synthetic rubber surround for great sound and long life, and the UV-resistant polymer basket surrounds and protects the entire structure.

The 3/4" treated silk dome tweeters render brilliant highs, and they're mounted directly to the grilles for optimal sound radiation. You'll hear all the details of your music, even when the throttle is forward and you're skimming over the waves.

Outstanding product, has changed the entire sound of the boat. Easy to install

Hands-on research

Product Research


Marine Tested: JL Audio's marine speakers are built to exceed industry standards for Salt-Fog and UV exposure. They are exposed to ultraviolet testing chambers to simulate years of sun exposure, and salt fog chambers to simulate years of exposure to salt-water environments. Corrosion and UV-resistant materials are used throughout.

Woofers: The MX650-CCX-CG-WH speakers feature injection-molded, mica-filled polypropylene cone woofers with UV inhibitors, synthetic rubber surrounds, and precisely engineered dust cap profiles for smooth upper-end response. The woofers also use marine-grade synthetic fiber spiders with a progressive roll design to withstand high humidity.

DMA (Dynamic Motor Analysis): DMA is JL Audio's proprietary method of improving dynamic motor behavior. The DMA optimized, long-excursion design enhances output, bass extension, and power handling of the speaker.

Tweeters: The speakers feature 3/4" silk dome tweeters with a specially formulated treatment to withstand UV and salt-spray exposure. The dome tweeter uses a neodymium magnet for higher efficiency levels and is Ferrofluid-cooled and damped for improved response and power handling capabilities.

Crossover: The tweeters use 2nd order (12 dB/oct) crossovers with solid-state tweeter protection to prevent tweeter failure.

Polymer Basket And Grille: The specifically engineered polymer baskets are corrosion and UV-resistant and encapsulate the woofer's motor system to prevent corrosion.

Infinite-Baffle Operation: The speakers are designed for infinite-baffle operation and can be installed in a variety of locations, without the need for a dedicated enclosure. The woofer is optimized to operate with a large volume of air behind it (at least 2 cubic feet); operating in less space will compromise low frequency performance.

4 questions already asked

The grills are not made to accept paint, no. They are made of a corrosion/UV resistant polymer material. You can get them with the Sport grills: Or the "Titanium Sport Grills": While I know this isn't the answer you were looking for, I hope the information helps. [ Ryan  Jan 05, 2017 ]  Staff
This item is too deep for most Radar Arches, you need to use an extension mounting rings between the arch and the speaker mounting surface. I fabricated a pair from MDF then coated them with resin then painted white, they look and work great. Plastic rings are also available from Crutchfield.. BTW.. these speakers sound great.. [ DOUGLAS A  Jun 18, 2015 ]
Yes! But not here that I know of. The Mfg # MX650-CCX-CG-TB (I have seen them at another place) [ Paul  Oct 13, 2015 ]
No. Not that I'm aware of. [ Bob  Jun 12, 2015 ]
They are available in white and dark grey. You would have to purchase the grey from JL audio directly. I wanted to buy the grey from Crutchfield but they do not sell that color any longer. Excellent speakers btw. [ KIRBY  Jun 12, 2015 ]
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: Unfortunately, we don't have any research on a 2011 Harley Davidson Ultra Limited fairing, we just have research on the fairing of the 2011 Road Glide and Street Glide. Only speakers that can be bottom mounted fit into the 2011 Steet Glide and Road Glide fairing, so if the Ultra Limited's faring is similar then the JL Audio MX650-CCX wouldn't work, because the MX650-CCX can only be top mounted. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy  Aug 20, 2014 ]  Staff
