About the JL Audio M6-8IB-S-GwGw-i-4
Big bass performance and cool lights
Big bass performance and cool lights
This JL Audio M6 Series 8" marine subwoofer reflects JL Audio's commitment to awesome sound, cutting-edge styling, and quality engineering. The built-in LED lighting looks terrific and brightens any nighttime cruise, and you can choose the grille style and color that's right for your boat's interior.
Handles up to 200 watts RMS
This rugged sub can really rock, with a massive magnet and heavy-duty componentry that can handle up to 200 watts RMS. It's tough, too, with a sealed waterproof front and the stylish, UV-resistant grille of your choice. Add it to your existing system, or use it in conjunction with JL Audio's marine speakers to create a powerful sound system that will really rock the waves.
The motor structure allows for extended cone movement, so your bass will be loud and low, yet precise and smooth. This versatile sub works in sealed or ported enclosures, but it's optimized for infinite baffle (free air) operation, so you can mount it directly into a bulkhead if there's no space for a box.
The coolest cones around
Any sub with built-in lighting is cool enough, but JL Audio M6 models are something special. The unique Transflective™ cone is designed to glow evenly when the LEDs shine through) and reflect light (the cone looks silver when the lights aren't in use), so your sub will look awesome whether the lights are on or off.
The LEDs themselves are mounted to the speaker's frame and illuminate the cone from underneath. This very smart bit of engineering ensures smooth, vibrant light without the “hot spots” you'd notice on lesser LED speakers. It sounds like a subtle difference, but when you see them lit up, you'll understand what a huge improvement this is. You can choose from a variety of fixed lighting colors or control the color and intensity of the lighting with the MLC-RW RGB LED Controller (coming soon).
Built for life on the water
Built from the ground up for the marine environment, this rugged subwoofer sports a corrosion-resistant polymer basket that surrounds the internal structure for extra protection. The marine-grade synthetic fiber spider, injection-molded polypropylene cone, and synthetic rubber surround provide outstanding performance, while shrugging off the corrosive effects of sun, salt, and moisture. The UV-resistant grille will stay factory-fresh even after years of outdoor exposure. As an added bonus, you're protected by JL Audio's 2-year warranty.

More details on the JL Audio M6-8IB-S-GwGw-i-4
Marine Tested: JL Audio's marine speakers are tested in ultraviolet chambers to simulate years of sun exposure, and salt fog chambers to simulate years of exposure to salt-water environments.
LED Illumination: There are multi colored LEDs mounted behind the cone in the speaker frame, to create a glow on the cone. Depending on what combination of LED wires is connected, they can light red, green, blue, yellow, pink, aqua, or white. A 12 volt power supply is needed to turn the LEDs on. JL Audio recommends a 750 mA fuse on the LED power lead of each speaker. The LEDs can also be controlled using JL Audio's MLC-RC controller (item number 13699816, sold separately).
Materials: The woofer cone is mica-filled injection-molded polypropylene (IMPP) with UV inhibitors. The surrounds are synthetic rubber and the woofer uses a marine-grade synthetic fiber spider with a progressive roll design. The basket and grille are UV-resistant polymer; they encapsulate the woofer's motor system to prevent corrosion.
Infinite-Baffle Operation: The M6-8IB is optimized for infinite baffle operation so that it can be installed in a variety of locations, without the need for a dedicated enclosure. If an enclosure is used, 1.5 ft³ is the minimum recommended volume.
Enclosure: If mounting in an enclosure, JL Audio recommends a 2 ft³ sealed (1.5 ft³ minimum) or 1.5 ft³ ported enclosure.
