Purchased these for a 36 foot sailboat that is raced hard regularly. These replaced a very old set of 6.5" marine speakers that were completely blown out. The install was straight forward, though a little more complicated for us since we had to make modifications because the old speakers were nearly the same size. This only involved cutting an additional half inch of material away from the hole and rotating the speakers 45 degrees because the screw holes were too close to each other. Once they were wired and mounted they sounded great, I got them on sale which means I'm even happier with the purchase. Very nice bass response and the mids and highs were very accurate, overall a nice clean sound. They are being driven by a marine head unit only, no amp is installed and there is no stand alone sub woofer. A LOT rides on how you have you head unit set up to deliver power and equalizer settings to ANY speaker. I gave 4 stars instead of five for a few reasons. First of all they are brand new so I'm not sure about their longevity, however we are in fresh water so I'm optimistic. Secondly, it remains to be seen how "weather resistant" they actually are. We get everything here from 90+ degrees and high humidity to -10 and dry, time will tell. Third, I'm disappointed in the gauge of wire supplied, I did run a heavier gauge from the wiring harness to the speakers and then spliced in the supplied pigtail at only a few inches so I'd have the supplied ends and the heaviest gauge wire possible for as long as possible in the run. I'm VERY happy with these speakers, after only one week however we will see if the possibility of frequent replacement is worth the savings over alleged higher quality speakers, which I doubt are worth another 100+ dollars in the long run.

        Bought these to replace other speakers that were more expensive, and have worked exceptionally well, was surprised by the base. I have 2 pairs and in my 32' boat for a year and a half and I'm very happy with them.

          It's just too hard to not get these. The price is great and they regularly go on sale. My first set is going on 2 years with no special treatment(washed with hose, soap). They have not degraded at all. I bought another pair after considering other brands. The warranty is great, but hopefully that won't be necessary.

              Great speakers!!! We have 2 pair in our Sea Hunt, they sound amazing. Best speaker for the price and actually sound better than a lot of the more expensive speakers. Pleased that they are lasting in the saltwater and salt air our boat stays on the lift year around. No problems.

                My career as an audio engineer (35 years, 7 Emmys) qualifies me to provide a good evaluation. I went to the W Haverstraw store and spent a lot of time with Tom, the manager, evaluating many speakers and chose these. The reproduction and frequency range is great, a nice tight bass and good highs. For use aboard a boat, I think you would have to search a long time to find anything better for the price!
