Conclusion: Sound quality was excellent with these speakers installed in the bow of my 1998 Maxum 23 ft Bowrider. Sony speakers were the exact size for my existing cutouts which made installation easy. Especially enjoyed music quality while fishing and even underway.
Conclusion: I replaced my boat speakers with these and have never heard such great sound with a great mix of treble and bass; definitely worth the money! Only complaint is the screw covers that keep falling out.
Conclusion: Installed in my boat, they sound great! A couple of times I played the stereo in the boat while in garage rather than the radio in my garage while out there working! I have not been out on the water with them, I'm from Wisconsin and I just installed them this last fall, I can't wait for summer!
Conclusion: The speakers have a very good sound range. I use them non-amplified. I got a little better performance than my stock speakers, but look a lot sharper. The only problem were the mounting holes. They had a smaller diameter than my old 6.5" speakers. The mounting cover on these speakers just barely covered the old holes. Satisfied overall.
Summary: [...] Straight forward to install, only hard part is the white "buttons" that cover the screw heads. The finished look is well worth the effort. The sound is remarkably full, even at low volumes.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Install, Reliable, Waterproof
Summary: [...].As to the speakers, I was replacing the identical speakers..do to the fact the rubber surrounds on the cones had completely deteriorated after 2 years, the reason I used the exact same speakers is the mounting holes on the boat couldn't be changed. I will remove the speakers after the boating season, since the speakers can't seem hold up in changing weather.
