JL Audio Intros M6 Marine Speakers

JL-Audio-M6

 JL Audio announced an all-new flagship M6 series of premium marine loudspeakers that are now shipping.

The line has been redesigned from the ground up and is said to be the result of years of research, replacing the former M- Series introduced about three years ago.  The M6 now includes a new type of RGB lighting and a new sophisticated crossover system.

Where most marine speakers are lit from the trim ring or speaker grilles, the new JL Audio Transflective LED system illuminates from the back of the speaker onto a translucent cone to create a singular glow with no reflections on the surface.  The former M-Series offered only single-color lighting.

The Transflective LED feature is available as an option on most of the new speakers.

JL Audio is offering a controller for the RGB lighting. It includes a rotary knob and it can work with other RGB lighting options apart from the M6 speakers, said the company.

The line of full range, subwoofer and tower speakers includes an M6 coaxial with a long-excursion woofer that claims a superior frequency response, smooth mid-range dispersion and linear performance at all listening levels.

It comes in 6.5-, 7.7- and 8.8-inches and uses silk dome tweeters at 0.8-inch, 1-inch and 1.25-inch, respectively.

The company claims its crossovers are more sophisticated than those in typical marine speakers.  Each crossover network has an electronic tweeter protection circuit to minimize the possibility of tweeter failure. The crossover components are  laid out on a ring-shaped circuit board that is built into each speaker’s terminal assembly, for protection against the elements.

The wakeboard speakers are “built to withstand intense UV exposure and a real saltwater marine environment,” said JL Audio.   The 7.7- and 8.8-inch enclosures are precision-molded from special marine-grade polymer. Each works with a precision-machined clamp systems (sold separately). All models are available in Gloss White or Satin Black enclosure finishes, with complementary speaker grilles.

The M6 series will be sold by specialist dealers and will be included in select new boats from Barker Boatworks, Berkshire, Blackwater, Boston Whaler, Chaparral, Cigarette, Contender, Deep Impact, Iconic, Manitou, MTI, Mystic, Nautique, Nortech, Premier, Sea Vee, Sportsman, Southbay, and Trifecta.

The line offers cosmetic options to match boats from yachts to tow boats.  It comes with two grille designs- the Classic White slat-grille or the sport split spoke grille in Gloss White or Gunmetal/Titanium metallic finish.

The products are built at JL Audio’s Miramar, Florida factory.
