Summary: I was terribly disappointed. The sound was originally very good. They had been installed in the cockpit of my sailboat, completely out of the weather, within a hard-top enclosure. They were "dead" in one year. So much for the Sony name as any kind of assurance!
Summary: My husband bought these speakers to match some he had for our boat. They worked perfectly and the boat was already set up for this size so a little tweaking and he was very happy. Me I like the quiet when boating but maybe some soft music will lure the fish to our boat(?) He recommends these Sony speakers and they came well packaged and on time.
