Wow. First JL had the 7.7 and now they have the 8.8". Did anyone on here get to CES and get a listen to these? I have been impressed with the sound of the 7.7" speakers that are in my friends Epic and I can only imagine how good these sound.
Miramar, FL — Many were puzzled when JL Audio introduced their 7.7-inch marine speakers a few years ago. However, as soon as people heard them, they quickly realized that quite simply, a bigger speaker delivers better efficiency and bass extension at high output levels, leading to louder, cleaner output.
Following that logic, JL Audio's engineers set out to create an even more powerful marine coaxial. The result is this 8.8-inch diameter monster, which offers a significant performance advantage over the previous 7.7-inch models, and a huge advantage over conventional 6.5 inch marine coaxials (twice the cone area will do that for you).
The bass is so impressive that the M880-CCX can be used without a subwoofer while still packing a serious low-frequency punch. When used with a subwoofer, they offer vastly better dynamics and mid-bass impact than smaller speakers.
