Why is it right after you buy something you wish you had something else? :D Just ran across the new JL Audio Marine speakers. I think they are the same performers, just cosmetic changes. But man these things "look" awesome now! Love those grills, got get some!

Sorry for a reply to my own post. :D But these should give Alpine's PDX amps a run for the money. Look pretty nice as well.

Working on that at the moment. :D

Not sure the exact release date of these products, but I will find out. As far as these being installed into 2008 MC, I doubt it. Most boat manufactures buy a "lot" of audio products form the stereo manufacture for that upcoming year. (Probably months ago.) That always struck me as humorous. Excluding Mastercraft, a lot of manufactures buy those audio products form manufactures that have discontinued those products and they get a good deal on them. So you buy a brand new Brand X boat, that has a cd player or whatever in it that was discontinued over a year ago! Nice! All about money usually.

Man.. I told myself. If JL would change the lame grill design...... I always liked the metal grills but not because of cost and how the white edges still showed... But know that they have BLACK... GRRR And a cool design..

anything is better than those 40th grills, they looked good online, and I know MC put some money into getting em machined, but we put together our 197 and X-Star a couple weeks back, and I'm really not a fan of the grills!!

Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, I think it's wired backwards! Needle should be bouncing on the low side!
Maybe they are intended to match the trailer wheels somewhat!

They look cool, but it looks like they won't protect the cones very well...even if you're being careful, you KNOW something's going to poke in there and ruin a speaker.

Is there some protection behind the grille you can't see in the pics?

I was thinking the same thing. I have little ones and I can see them "accidentally" poking there fingers in there at some point. For that reason alone I would not get them unless they had extra protection not visible in pic?

i have twin 8 year olds, one 6 year old, and one 3 year old and i can never imagine they would do something like that. i guess cause they know the consequences!!

Just got off the phone with JL-they say that they have not planed to sell the grilles individually and were not speced on the new price sheet. I did mention I hope they do and that it seems funny not to.

I said that to them..."whats happens if a foot goes through a speaker or something". "Well we would send them out a grille off a warranty speaker". Seems dumb to me.

MYMC
01-10-2008, 12:50 PM
I just received an email from our contact at JL.

I will have the grills available separately, I do not know cost or delivery date but will have all the information this coming Monday.

Stay tuned and I'll do a "group buy" when I have the details.

I would love to have the new design too, but look at these last words on the site:
Because not all boats are styled the same way, the JL Audio marine speaker lineup will now be available in two distinct styles, each available in two different color schemes. The new looks will be available in 2008 on all marine coaxials, component systems and subwoofer drivers, except the MX650-CCX.

Which means all the older boat with the 6,5" holes can't have 'm....:mad:

I wonder what the MSRP will be for those Tower Cans. Nice of them to make it so that you can swivel it around if you wanted to shoot the sound forward or back. Anybody know the MSRP on those cans for the tower?

The db Series Polk's I had in my previous boat took several licks from people, rope handles, and board corners. The Polk and JL grills share similar designs. If your worried about them taking abuse or things poking through them, don't. Aside from their obvious aesthetic qualities they should be strong. I say order up!

Latest update (cut from the email):

We're still working on the grilles. I know this sounds simple, but it's not. Currently, we have just enough stock to keep up with production. The individual parts are coming in slowly. I hope to have an answer by the end

took about 1 1/2 hours to install 3 pairs along with the sub. 13 total with tweeters.
