    Default Standard Speakers or Marine Speakers?

    Hello everyone,

    Just registered here and this is my first post. I Just bought a 2005 Shockwave Tremor 25', took her out for the first time last week and she ran like a champ! I currently have six 6X9 speakers all around the boat and 2 of them just dead on me, so I plan on buying all new speakers. My question is this, should i go with Marine grade speakers or standard name brand speakers? The speakers that I currently have don't appear to be marine type speakers....

    Same here. Never had a problem until my 2 year old Granddaughter thought you turned them on by pushing the little button in the middle of the tweeter.

    I use Pioneer 4-ways. The extra tweeter works extremely well for getting sound out into an open environment. Inside a car, they would be too much. Pioneer currently builds one of the best 6X9s you can get for the money.

    You can find the "R" models for $60-80 a pair, depending on where and when.

    Regular car speakers will sound a bit better and by the time they finally whither from the moist/open exposure - you will be ready for newer models/upgrades anyway.

    Due yourself a favor and by JL Marine. I bought other speakers that were good and in the end I broke down and bought JL and I could have saved myself a lot of money if I just bought good Marine speakers in the first place. They are the best and they are made for that environment.
