Will Not Disappoint!
THESE SPEAKERS ARE AS ADVERTISED AND WILL NOT DISAPPOINT!
Installed a pair of these M2s in my radar arch and a pair of M1s in front lower cockpit speaker location of my Sea Ray 340 with a 4x75W amp and run them full-range. These speakers sound great and are very loud and have great mid bass. Even with wind noise while driving these cut thru and sound good. I added the fosgate PM2104 10" sub under helm seat, no enclosure, with JL 3x600 amp (may add another pair of M2s) and its now a party. Rafted with my friend with a Sea Ray 400 who has the JL set up and bragged about how much smoother the JLs were going to sound compared to these Rockfords. I BLEW him out of the water. Even at low volume the mid bass on these 8's fill better than the JLs. Unfortunately, the Color Optix lights are are dissapointing. The Bluetooth disconnects constantly. They are not that bright, but you do have good control options thru the Bluetooth by cell phone. For the price these speakers are worth it. I'd have given 5 stars if the LEDs were brighter.
