JL Audio recently announced its new M6 line, featuring a variety of full-range speakers, subwoofers and tower speakers.
"With M6, we have pulled out all the stops to deliver our best sounding, best looking marine loudspeakers ever," said Andy Oxenhorn, President of JL Audio. "Years of research and development have led us to this launch event, and we know that our customers will be excited to experience the incredible performance and design of M6."
M6 is acoustically engineered to reproduce powerful, low-distortion bass and evenly disperse smooth sound in an open-air boat environment. The new line also features JL Audio's stringently tested marine-grade materials withstand intense UV and saltwater exposure, along with new styling and JL Audio's patent-pending Transflective LED illumination.
The M6 series is designed to match the multitude of boat styles, ranging from luxury yachts to high-performance tow boats. Two grille designs are available: "Classic," featuring an all-white slat grille design and "Sport," which features a split-spoke grille design. The latter comes in two color schemes: Gloss White, or a beautiful, Gunmetal/Titanium dual metallic finish. JL Audio's Transflective LED illumination technology is available as an option on most models, providing a lighting effect, with no hot spots or reflections on the cone surface.
JL Audio also offers an RGB controller (Model MLC-RW) that features a mount-anywhere form factor and an easy-to-use, rotary knob for adjusting the speakers' illumination color and intensity.
Every M6 coaxial loudspeaker starts with a long-excursion woofer designed with JL Audio's proprietary motor, suspension and cone modeling systems to yield superior frequency response, smooth mid-range dispersion and linear performance at all listening levels. Offered in three different sizes (6.5-inch, 7.7-inch and 8.8-inch), M6 coaxial speakers feature silk dome tweeters, appropriately sized (0.8-inch, 1-inch and 1.25-inch) to complement the varying frequency response limits of their respective woofers.
Ideal for wakeboard towers or other tubular structures, M6 Enclosed Coaxial Speaker Systems can also be mounted to decks and other flat surfaces. The 7.7 and 8.8-inch enclosures are precision-molded from JL Audio's special marine-grade polymer and feature a decorative, aluminum JL Audio logo cap on the end opposite the speaker. Each is designed to install with JL Audio's precision-machined clamp systems. M6 Enclosed Coaxials are available in Gloss White or Satin Black enclosure finishes, with complementary speaker grilles.
Offered in 8-inch and 10-inch diameters, M6 subwoofers feature an FEA-optimized motor and suspension designs, optimized for infinite-baffle installation (IB models), or for installation into small enclosures (W models).
The complete M6 series will be sold by JL Audio's car audio and marine dealers, and will also be incorporated into select new boats as original equipment by the following boat brands: Barker Boatworks, Berkshire, Blackwater, Boston Whaler, Chaparral, Cigarette, Contender, Deep Impact, Iconic, Manitou, MTI, Mystic, Nautique, Nortech, Premier, Sea Vee, Sportsman, Southbay, and Trifecta.
