Marine Speakers

Recommended Posts

Someone mentioned JBL speakers before. I just spied these on trademe if anyone is interedted.

Hmm, pity I couldn't get a commision from trademe seeing as I keep posting links to auctions :wink:

Err.. Have we got to the part where the sound engineers can recommend a good set of speakers.

Sound engineers can say words like cheap, good quality and sounds awesome. But never in the same sentance or refering to the same item :wink:

I have access to some awesome speakers that I use to use in wet environments like indoor swimming pools, but they are all really expensive and too big and powerful for the average boat.

The ones that do 80% of perfect for 20% of the price?

 

You want a boat that floats 80% of the time for 20% of the price? :D

 

You get what you pay for. And JBL's ( for example ) are more expensive. But if you were contemplating a circumnavigation, would you want a Bendytoe first 45 or an Amel Maramu 54, for example. Specially in hurricane with 100knot winds..... Cheap speakers will do an ok job for a while, but after a while, the bulkheads come unglued and things turn pear shaped. Same as a bendytoe will get rusty voice coils. The Amel will just keep on keeping on.

What I mean is that the last 20% of quality will cost one 80% more. There must be speakers (like JBL) that can suffice. Any speaker will get trashed in a cockpit, it's just a matter of time, so why pay heaps more for an indiscernible improvement in sound and perhaps a year or two more for the hardware.

So buy twice as many as you need and have a spare pair for planned replacement. KISS principle is it knot :?:
