Product Overview

These low magnetic field three-way speakers have a unique dual woofer design that handles up to 280 watts/pair.

The MA5500 has slim-line design, state-of-the-art sound, ultra-low magnetic interference, and it fits in the cutout of your old MA505 styrofoam speakers. It's everything you want in a reliable marine speaker: waterproof, corrosion-proof, flush-mounted, and you don't have to struggle to mount it 5' from the compass as you would another system because its magnets are shielded. UV-stabilized plastic case. Sold in pairs.

  • Home-quality sound: Platinum Series speakers are high-powered performers that offer superior sound for discriminating listeners who demand the very best quality audio. They are the first truly waterproof, full-range marine speakers to offer the performance of a home stereo system.
  • Waterproof: Constructed to withstand the most severe effects of sun and saltwater, Platinum speakers are ideal replacement or upgrade speakers for those who want increased audio power, smooth response and minimum distortion.
  • Sleek and modern: With a sleek, contemporary style that is beautifully proportioned and meticulously finished, Platinum Series speakers complement any salon, stateroom or above-deck mounting. Aluminum grills, coated internal wires, polypropylene cones and mylar tweeters assure you of long-lasting performance and good looks.
  • Magnetic shielding: Until now, installing speakers within five feet of compasses, autopilots or other navigation gear was a problem; Low magnetic field technology uses a canceling magnet and a shielded enclosure to reduce the magnetic flux caused by the speaker
