What speakers to buy.

Recommended Posts

In need of some new marine speakers. I like the jl audios but not the price . Is there anything out there that is close to quality for budget price. What are y'all running!?

To be honest, none of the cheaper speakers really compare to JL.  If it were me, I would save up till I had enough for JL's.  If anything get "MX" series instead of "M" series.

So I went back and forth on JL or other. I ended up with a pair of Sony. 

They are plenty loud to hear while driving around and at the sandbar while by the boat. I got them and an amp for just over $100 and with most of my listening coming over a screaming 2 stroke sound quality isn't a priority.

I have Rockford fosgates becuase I wouldn't bring myself to pony up for the JLs. When I replace it will either be the same or same size JLs. These have really surprised me and everyone else who has heard them.

I initially installed just JL's without an amp.  Foolish decision if you want to listen while running.  Came back with the 400/4 amp.  Great sound that easily overcomes the motor while running.

Sounds like I need to save up then for jl speakers. Another thing . Do I have to run an amp or would head unit push them?

You need a good amp. JL's need and want power!!

Fusion Signature....  Great sound quality, less expensive than JL Audio and the clarity is great.  AMP them up and they're hard to beat, even by JL...
