JL Audio M880-CCX-SG-TLD-B # 91103 M-Series 8.8-inch Marine Cockpit Coaxial System
The JL Audio M880-CCX-SG-TLD-B eccentric 8.8″ diameter provides 36% more surface area, almost double the excursion capability and +6 dB greater low frequency output than M880-CCX’s little brother, the M770-CCX 7.7″ coaxial systems. This huge upgraded provided a far larger increase in efficiency as well as the ability to play much louder and cleaner at high volumes. Although these speakers require a larger mounting hole, they are well worth the modification for the amount of sound they can produce.
CCX (aka Cockpit Coaxial) models have woofers specifically designed for infinite-baffle (“free-air”) applications. In plain english, 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. / 57 l). The bass response of the speaker will suffer significantly if placed in a small enclosure, so make sure your system is planned accordingly. The M-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 M880-CCX Coaxial Systems can be used with as little as 50 Watts per channel, for best audio performance JL Audio recommends amplifiers capable of between 50 – 250 Watts of continuous power per channel
High Performance Highs
An oversized 1.20-inch pure silk dome tweeter handles the high-frequency duties. Silk has been chosen for its lightness, excellent damping properties and smooth response characteristics that ultimately result in extremely transparent crisp audio. You will appreciate the clean, articulate high-frequency response of the M-Series dome tweeter, especially at higher volume levels. The tweeter is specially treated to withstand the harsh marine environment, and is optimized to provide sound that will cut through even the most demanding of those marine environments.
True Marine Tested Design
Specifically engineered polymer baskets are corrosion and UV-resistant and encapsulate the woofer’s motor system to prevent corrosion. The system’s true 2-way passive crossover network is sealed within the protective capsule and mounted to the woofer’s frame so that it does not require additional mounting provisions and is protected from the harmful elements. JL Audio utilizes Ultraviolet testing chambers (to simulate years of sun exposure) and Salt Fog chambers (to simulate years of exposure to salt-water environments to ensure that the M-Series not only sound great in your boat, but will also sound great for many, many years.
