About the JL Audio M880-ETXv3-SG-WHLD-B
Hot sound, cool LED lights
Hot sound, cool LED lights
When you're tearing a lake around at full throttle, you want powerful speakers that can be heard over wind and engine noise. But when you're relaxing at the dock, high fidelity and high style are more important than high volume. JL Audio designed their M880-ETXv3 tower speakers to give you the best of both worlds, with high-quality marine grade components and built-in blue LED lighting.
Big sound and style
These massive 8.8" speakers feature oversized woofer voice coils and silk dome tweeters, so they'll give you spectacular performance, whether you're at the marina or miles offshore. These long-throw speakers will look great on any boat, and they'll fit on any boat, too, because they're designed to work with JL Audio clamp systems (sold separately). The clamps are available in a range of sizes to fit a variety of pipe diameters or surface-mount applications. The wire exits through the center of the mount, so it stays high, dry, and out of sight.
Made for life on the water
Tower speakers lead a rough life, so JL Audio engineered these LED speakers to exceed marine industry standards for salt water, salt, fog, and ultraviolet exposure. The rugged enclosures are precision-molded from marine-grade polymer and the speaker connections are hidden safely away, so your speakers will stand up to the rigors of the marine environment. With water-resistant internal works and durable rubber surrounds, these speakers won't let a little moisture throw a wet blanket on your fun.
For maximum performance, JL Audio recommends that you power these speakers with an amp that delivers between 125 and 250 watts RMS per speaker.

Marine Tested Design: Building serious marine products requires a real commitment to environmental testing and materials specification. To this end, JL Audio has invested in Ultraviolet testing chambers (to simulate years of sun exposure) and Salt Fog chambers (to simulate years of exposure to salt-water environments). This testing is critical to building products that will not only sound great in your boat, but will also sound great for many, many years.
Coaxial Tower Speaker: Enclosed in these injection-molded enclosures are JL Audio's M-Series 8.8" coaxial tower speakers. Specifically tuned for tower enclosure applications, these coaxial drivers deliver clean, loud audio that can be heard well beyond the boat when mounted up high. Like all JL Audio marine speakers, this system is built to withstand a real saltwater marine environment and deliver years of listening enjoyment.
- Tweeter: The 1.2" silk dome tweeter is specially designed to withstand UV and salt-spray exposure. The dome tweeter uses a neodymium magnet for higher efficiency levels and is Ferrofluid-cooled and damped for improved response and power handling capabilities.
- Woofer: The woofer consists of an injection-molded, mica-filled polypropylene cone with UV inhibitors, synthetic rubber surrounds, and precisely engineered dust cap profiles for smooth upper-end response. The woofers also use marine-grade synthetic fiber spiders with a progressive roll design to withstand high humidity.
Polymer Enclosure: The specifically engineered, injection-molded, marine-grade polymer enclosures and grilles are corrosion and UV-resistant to protect the tower speakers from the harsh marine environment. The enclosures feature a decorative, aluminum logo cap on the end opposite the speaker, which can be oriented to match any custom mounting application.
Mounting Hardware (Sold Separately): Each enclosure is designed to mate with one of JL Audio mounting fixtures (sold separately, and available to fit a wide range of applications). These mounting fixtures are marine-grade stainless steel and will hold up to marine life. Check the accessory list for available mounting fixtures.
Note: If you need help determining the correct pipe-mounting clamp for your installation, then download JL Audio's Pipe-Mounting Clamp Ruler.
Blue LEDs: Integrated into the grille's frame, the internal LED lighting assembly was meticulously designed to uniformly illuminate the woofer's cone area with a lively blue glow, adding a dramatic visual experience to your high seas journey.
Wiring: The wiring cable exit through the center of the mounting fixtures, staying high and dry, and out of sight. The wiring cable consists of two 16AWG wire (Red & Black) and four 20AWG wires (Red, Green, Blue, and Yellow). The 16AWG Red and Black wires are positive and negative for connecting the speaker. The 20AWG Blue and Yellow wires are used to hook-up the LED lightning. The 20AWG Red and Green wires are not used.
Power Recommendation: For best results, JL Audio recommend powering this system with an amplifier in the 50 to 250 watt per channel range.
Installation Note: Professional installation is strongly recommended.
