JL Audio 7.7″ MX-Series Marine Cockpit Coaxial System
MX-Series coaxial systems deliver excellent performance at a more affordable price than JL Audio’s maximum-performance M-Series models. The unique 7.7″ diameter provides 20% more surface area, than the typical 6.5″, therefore providing an increase in efficiency as well as the ability to play louder and cleaner at high volumes. Although these speakers require a slightly larger mounting hole, they are well worth the small modification for the amount of sound they can produce.
CCX (Cockpit Coaxial) models have woofers specifically designed for infinite-baffle applications. This means that they are designed to operate without an enclosure. More specifically, the woofer design is optimized to operate with a large volume of air behind it (at least 2 cu. ft.). The bass response of the speaker will suffer significantly if placed in a small enclosure, so make sure your system is planned accordingly. The MX-Series is purpose-engineered and built for real marine duty and has been specifically designed to deliver maximum audio performance in any open-air boating environment. Although MX770-CCX Coaxial Systems can be used with as little as 20 W per channel, for best audio performance JL Audio recommends amplifiers capable of between 75 – 100 Watts of continuous power per channel, like the JL Audio M400/4.
