Some of our favorite boat system speakers are the JL Audio M6-880 speakers. We love their high output, impressive bass response and superb sound quality. So, when this Blazer Bay owner came to us wanting some of the best for his boat, we knew they were the perfect speakers to recommend. After speaking with the client a little more, we determined where we would be installing the two pair of M6-880-S-GwGwi coaxials.
JL Audio Speaker Upgrades
To make sure the captain had great sound while at the helm, we added one speaker on each side of the console. We placed those speakers up higher, to make sure the client retained the use of his rod holders. For those who would be riding in the front of the boat, we added another set of M6-880’s closer to the bow. As with all our marine speaker installations, we made sure that the locations we chose would not interfere with any storage or live wells.
Rockford Fosgate Marine Amplifiers
Over the many M6-880 installations we have done, we have found that they love lots of power. To make sure we gave the speakers plenty of clean power we used 2 Rockford Fosgate M2-300×4 marine amplifiers. Each of these amplifiers were bridged to a pair of speakers to provide them with up to 230 watts of power per speaker.
JL Audio Marine Radio
The final piece of the puzzle for this marine audio system was the source unit. The client wanted a rugged, reliable radio that would allow him to stream music from his phone. The JL Audio MM50 fit the bill perfectly for this installation. The large, easy to read, screen and multiple zone outputs are features that help make this radio stand out.
Great Sounding Boat System
Once all of the gear was installed, we set the gains and crossovers on the amplifiers to provide the client with the maximum performance from his new audio system. After showing the client how to use the new radio, we got to one of our favorite parts of the sale, cranking it up and seeing the smile on our client’s face!
