waterproof/resistant speakers

So I have been looking around for a set of waterproof/resistant speakers to mount in the back of my TJ, and I came across these speakers.

http://www.starmarinedepot.com/Boss+...r+Speaker.html


Was wondering if anyone has attempted to put something like this on their roll bars, or if anyone has any recommendations that would be fine too.


Thanks all

I have used Bose marine speakers and bolted them directly to the tire wells in the back and Have water proof pioneer ones right now in my YJ and I have had a soundbar, just make sure the housing is water proof and sealed and you shouldnt have any issues

You don't really need "marine" speakers for your speakers to be water resistant. All you need is a speaker whose cone is made from polyurethane, mylar, etc. with a butyl rubber edge around it and you'll be fine. It is really only speakers that have a paper cone that are suceptible to water damage. Most aftermarket car speaker cones seem to be made from polyurethane or mylar so you shouldn't have any trouble finding speakers that will be fine if they accidentally get wet.

I installed these Polk Audio DB651 6.5-Inch Coaxial Speakers into my sound bar. They are marine certified and sound great, cost me about $60 new. I should have ordered the 5.25 instead of the 6.5, but all I had to do was drill a couple extra holes. If you have a soundbar already you might as well skip that whole boat set up it's just a waste of money.

I dont have a sound bar or anything specific at this point. I just have a couple enclosed speakers mounted right above the wheel wells. Prior owner did it, it was like the only mod done on this jeep when I bought it. I am just looking to do an upgrade of some sort.

Jerry, thanks for the info on "not really needing marine speakers". I figured I needed some kind of water proof speaker. I was picturing myself caught in a heavy florida rain storm and ruining a couple hundred dollars in speakers......
