Frequently Asked Questions
A marine speaker is a type of speaker specifically designed for use in boats and other watercraft. Good quality Marine speakers are specifically built to withstand the harsh marine environment, including exposure to saltwater, moisture, extreme temperatures, and the sun’s ultraviolet rays.
Marine speakers are built to withstand the elements that can damage regular speakers and cause them to deteriorate and rust in a marine environment exposed to saltwater, moisture, and UV rays. Marine speakers are typically designed to be waterproof and feature rust-proof hardware, making them ideal for use in boats and other watercraft.
The best size of marine speaker to install in a boat will depend on the size of the boat and the desired sound quality. Typically, 6.5-inch or 8-inch speakers are popular options for most boats.
Yes, marine speakers can be used for other outdoor activities, such as camping, tailgating, or outdoor parties. Since marine speakers are specifically designed to resist exposure to the outdoor elements such as moisture, dust and UV rays, they will perform nicely in other outdoor environments as well.
The power handling capability of a marine speaker are typically measured in Watts RMS and Watts peak. The RMS power handling is the continuous power a speaker can handle, while the peak power handling is the same power rating, expressed as instantaneous power a speaker can handle for a short period of time. It is important to match the power handling capability of the speakers to the power output of your boat's amplifier system. We always suggest using the continuous power (Watts RMS) ratings when matching speakers to amplifiers.
