I run commercial charters on a RAIV (basically a zodiac) in Hawaii. It's an open boat and we charge into waves every day and take heavy spray all the time and these speakers hold up very well. On average they last me 6-10 months which is impressive to me. I have never had a bracket break and frequently just install a new speaker without a problem. To maximize protection I recommend installing screws then coating shrink wrapped ends of wiring and the screws with liquid electric tape. Prevents corrosion very well.

Mounting brackets do not hold up

Speakers are great, but metal mounting brackets are inadequate. I had my first set for about 10 mounts when both brackets broke. I contacted West who sent me a new set of speakers...Read complete review

Speakers are great, but metal mounting brackets are inadequate. I had my first set for about 10 mounts when both brackets broke. I contacted West who sent me a new set of speakers and brackets. These lasted about 1 1/2 half years bfore the brackets broke on these. I am now looking for flush mount speakers. BTW. The speakers are holding up fine. My only complaint is with the brackets

          Bought 4 of these 3 years ago an installed them inside my sailboat tied into a fusion head unit with sub. I Choose them b/c of the price and sound quality (using the sound station at the WM). I also wanted some sealed units that I could pivot to direct the sound. Simply put they work great, sound great, zero issues.

                In mvoing these from one place to another, we lost a face plate off one speaker. Good news is: the speaker still works great! However, it looks pretty unattractive. Anyone know how to get a new face for one speaker?

                    I had these speakers on my boat for 8 years. No failures after 10 trips across the Gulf. Decided I needed another pair for the deck at home.
