External Loudspeakers

Post by Luis Sa » Sat Sep 16, 2017 11:03 pm

Hello,

Sooner or later you may need to replace the external loudspeakers as they suffer from accidental shocks, are subject to the weather and could suffer from water splashing when we wash the boat. I could not find the original ones. I bought a pair of Navsound Speakers that could fit in the 11,5 cm hole cutout but they started to "distort" just after 1 year of operation. Also they were not "loud" as the originals. I was not able to get direct replaceable speakers since all that I found needed a larger hole cutout. So I made a 12,5 cm hole and then I got a pair of Boss Audio MR50W 5-1/4" 2-Way Marine Speaker. The bigger model (MR60W) is too large and can not be mounted on the original location.

They are not expensive and sound good!
