About the JL Audio M3-650X-C-GW
Classic marine sound
Classic marine sound
Having toured JL Audio myself, I can tell you these guys take two things very seriously — great sound and life on the water. These M3-650X-C-Gw 6-1/2" marine speakers make both possible, thanks to excellent design and the most durable materials. You can mount them in your boat's cockpit or bulkhead walls, either as stand-alones or in conjunction with a subwoofer.
Supplied with plenty of power, these speakers can overcome that wicked combination of wind, water, and engine noise. The weatherproof mica-filled polypropylene cone is suspended in a durable synthetic rubber surround for long excursion and impactful sound. The UV-resistant polymer basket surrounds and protects the entire structure.
The 3/4" treated silk dome tweeters deliver brilliant highs, and they're mounted directly to the classic-style grilles for optimal sound radiation. Even in the roughest waters, you'll be able to enjoy the fine detail of your favourite tunes.

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.
Woofers: The woofer cones are injection-molded, mica-filled polypropylene with UV inhibitors, synthetic rubber surrounds, and marine-grade synthetic fiber spiders.
DMA (Dynamic Motor Analysis): DMA is JL Audio's proprietary method of improving dynamic motor behavior. The DMA-optimized long-excursion design enhances output, bass extension and power handling of the speaker.
Tweeters: Each speaker features a grille mounted ¾" treated silk dome tweeter with a specially formulated treatment to withstand the marine environment. The tweeters use neodymium magnets for higher efficiency levels and are Ferrofluid-cooled and damped for improved response and power handling capabilities.
Crossover: The woofers use a natural roll-off and the tweeter crossovers are 12 dB/octave. The crossover also features a polyswitch solid-state tweeter protection circuit.
Polymer Basket And Grille: The baskets and grilles are UV-resistant polymer. The baskets encapsulate the woofers' motor systems to prevent corrosion.
Infinite-Baffle Operation: The speakers are optimized for infinite-baffle operation so they can be installed in a variety of locations, without the need for a dedicated enclosure.
Power Handling: JL Audio recommends two RMS power figures for this model; 60 watts RMS continuous power handling and 20-120 recommended amplifier power. We've listed the more conservative 60 watts RMS in the specs table.
