Outstanding sound for the outdoors

JL Audio builds their M3 VEX tower speakers to deliver quality sound while you're tearing along your favorite stretch of water or patch of land. Whether you're out for a day of water skiing or navigating a challenging trail, you'll definitely hear your music over the roar of your boat or UTV.

Outstanding sound for the outdoors

Built for off-road use

These 6-1/2" tower speakers are ideal for marine or off-road use. The super-stiff mica-injected polypropylene cones feature durable synthetic-rubber surrounds, while the 3/4" treated silk dome tweeters are mounted directly to the grilles for optimal sound dispersion. Lightweight neodymium magnets deliver heavy sound, but won't mess with your boat's center of gravity.

Tough enough for rough water

Specially tuned for maximum performance, these sleek, sharp-looking VEX speakers use marine-grade stainless steel, synthetic fibers, and UV-resistant polymer baskets to protect their inner workings against humidity and salt. They look terrific, of course, but they're also durable enough to survive in harsh marine environments.

Don't forget the clamps

Each of the injection-molded VEX pods features a weatherproof Lexan™ logo applique on the end opposite the speaker. The rotating clamp receiver is designed to mate with a JL Audio clamp system (sold separately) and allows you to aim the speakers for optimal performance.

Product Research

Features

Overview: JL Audio's M3-650VeX marine speakers feature their M3 6.5-inch marine woofer and 3/4" dome tweeter, coaxially mounted in attractive injection-molded enclosures designed to withstand the harsh marine environment. Each enclosure includes a decorative logo cap that can be attached in any orientation to match the mounting application.

Materials Testing: All of JL Audio's marine products endure rigorous materials testing to achieve reliability and longevity. This includes ultraviolet testing chambers, simulating years of sun exposure, along with salt/fog chambers, simulating years of exposure to salt water. This level of testing allows JL Audio to build products that not only sound great, but will endure the marine environment for a long time.

Power Handling: The 4Ω JL Audio marine speakers can handle 60 watts RMS with a peak power rating of 225 watts. For best results, each speaker should be powered by a marine amplifier in the 20-120 watt RMS range.

Mounting: The M3-650VeX's do NOT include mounting clamps or hardware. Various size clamps, both fixed and swiveling, are available here for mounting the marine speakers to a large variety of wake-towers and rails. JL Audio provides a Pipe Mounting Fixture Ruler that can be downloaded here for determining the proper pipe diameter.

Wiring: Each speaker includes 117" of speaker bare-ended speaker wire extending from the bottom of the enclosure. Both strands of speaker wire are white with the positive side having "+" markings along it.

Nope. Mount not included

I haven't installed them yet but it looks like you can position them anyway you want too.
paul  Oct 17, 2020
A
If you order the JL mounts made by Axia Alloy they do swivel, but at set increments. The mounts are excellent and should give you great flexibility in your mounting options.

They're a speaker. You WILL blow them out if you don't utilize a subwoofer with these in conjunction with this speaker.
anthony  May 28, 2020

Yes they do, I am very impressed with the range on these speakers.
