Great sound

Replacing Clarions that lasted over 5 years. The Clarion tweeters dry rotted, but the boat stays uncovered on saltwater year round. The mx650's have slightly more thump in bass, but otherwise basically same sound as Clarions. Not an exact bolt pattern match, but good enough where I didn't need any patchwork. Hoping to get same or longer use out of JL's. JL's have best grill available for a high performance speaker that looks great on a saltwater boat while not looking like it belongs on a 15 year old's wakeboard tower. Grill and speaker housing are built rugged and have withstood kicks and cooler bumps. So far after 6 months into it, this is a clear case of you get what you pay for, and I would definitely buy again.

VS
MX650-CCX-CG-WH (White with Classic Grilles)

Speakers are at best OK, not as good as the older style Infinity 6.5 602M speakers I had before. The JL's are high for the money and need an amplifier for any volume at all. I have heard the OTHER 6.5" JL speaker is better (NON "X" in MX)--if spending the money I'd recommend them over these.

Replaced the factory Clarions with these as part of a complete stereo makeover on a SeaRay sport yacht. Couldn't be happier. Solid and well built, rugged and dependable. In an open deck environment, the nuances of highs and lows are often lost, and I'm not the best audiophile, but the sound quality is vastly improved. A bit pricier than some alternatives, but they also have a reputation as the "go to" high end speakers for upscale marine environments so there is a little bit of admittedly shallow pride of ownership attached as well...and I don't have to defend a "no name great game" product.

These speakers are of some of the best quality that I have ever owned. I work in the field as a marine tech and I have always known that jl audio are for the most part the best speakers around. Now that I own them I can personally confirm that!
