What is Included?This package includes the following:
- (6) 6.5" JL Audio M3 marine grade speakers
- JL Audio Marine Amplifier Setup
- (1) 10" JL Audio M3 Subwoofer
- A 4 AWG Marine Amplifier Wiring Kit Per Amplifier
- The Option to Add a 2nd Subwoofer
JL Audio M3 speakers and subwoofers give you the superior sound quality you expect from JL marine speakers, but at an affordable price point. These speakers sound better than the other similar priced 6.5" speakers. The M3 might be just slightly more expensive, but you do get what you pay for. In terms of the subwoofer, JL is known for their subwoofers. They do subs better than anyone else and you don't have to worry about putting the subwoofer in an enclosure. The subwoofer is designed for free-air applications and you can install it directly into the hull of the boat. The M series amps offer unrivaled, power, signal processing and thermal management. This means your stereo sounds better and you can run it as loud as you want, for as long as you want, and you don't have to worry about the amps cutting out or overheating.
How do I wire the speakers?The M700/5, 5 channel amplifier has 4 speaker outputs and 1 subwoofer output. In order to wire 6 speakers to 4 outputs, one of the outputs will have 4 speakers wired to it. These speakers will run at 2 ohms instead of 4. The 4 speakers at 2 ohms will technically get less power than the 2 at 4 ohms, but you can use the fader in your head unit to correct the difference and make sure that all 6 speakers are playing at the same volume. The clarity difference from the difference in power in a noisy, outdoor environment like a boat will not be noticable.
How do I wire the subwoofer?The subwoofer wiring is straightforward, it is a single 4 ohm subwoofer and you just connect positive on the amp to positive on the speaker. Repeat and do the same thing with the negative terminal. Please refer to the wiring diagram if you have any further questions.
Is a subwoofer grille included?Yes, the JL Audio M3 10" subwoofer comes with the same color and style grille of the speakers. Everything will match nicely
Is the amp wiring kit included?No. We do not include the amp wiring kit because every boat ends up being different. Depending on the location of your amps and the battery location, the power wire might need to be 20+ feet long for one boat and only 9 feet long for the next. The way to solve for this would be to include a 20 foot long amp wiring kit in with every package. This would then force the customer than only needs 9 feet to overpay for something he or she doesn't need.
What about the RCAs?Similar to the amp wiring kit situation, we also don't include the RCAs because we don't know the length you need and it varies from boat to boat.
Is speaker wire included?Speaker wire is not included. Once again, we don't know the exact length you might need. If we include it, we have to make sure we err on the side of including too much as opposed to too little.
The Bottom LineIf you prefer sound quality over just sheer volume, but you want an affordable this package is perfect. With the speakers and amplifiers in this package, your system will get as loud as your ears can handle, inside your boat. If you want to be the loudest guy on the water and make sure that everyone else can hear your music, there are probably better options from Rockford or Wet Sounds. If you want something that is going to sound great and you don't care about others hearing your music, you just want to be able to hear your music, as loud as YOU want to hear it, and you want it to sound fantastic, the JL Audio M3's are perfect.
