What is Included?
This package includes the following:
- (6) 7.7" JL Audio M3 marine grade speakers
- (1) 10" JL Audio M3 Subwoofer
- JL Audio Marine Amplifier Setup (Choose from Drop Downs Above)
- 1 4 AWG Marine Amp 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.
Are the 7.7" speakers worth the extra money?
Yes. If you have the space and you can fit the 7.7" speakers, go with the 7.7". The larger speakers have more surface area, they handle more power, and they have better sub and mid-bass response. The 7.7" will simply play louder and sound better than the 6.5".
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?
Yes. We include 1 4 AWG marine amplifier wiring kit per amplifier selected. If you select 1 amplifier, you get 1 4 AWG amp wiring kit. If you select 2 amplifier, we include 2 kits.
What about the RCAs?
The RCA cables are not included.
Is speaker wire included?
Speaker wire is not included. Once again, we don't know the exact length you might need.
The Bottom Line
If you prefer sound quality over just sheer volume, but you want an affordable this package is perfect.

If you want something that is going to sound great
