Just heard of this brand a couple weeks ago. Reviews were good, and price point is really good, so I went with it. Purchased two pair of the SK65M.
I installed these on My Sea Ray 270 SD over the weekend. Paired them with a clarion APX480M I had sitting around from a upgrade I did on a customers boat. I used a Bluetooth adapter on the amp, skipped the head unit. They sound great,... at low and high volumes they are clean, clear, and rich bass from a small speaker. They look great too. Next project will be adding a sub under the starboard rear speaker, maybe one on each side. Skar doesn't have a marine sub so we gotta talk about that. I've got a dry location forward of the batteries for an enclosure. It would make for a pretty painless install. Just not sure if that's how I want to go.
I put 1ea 12" SDR sealed in my Chaparral 256SSI and 6ea of SK65M's powered with a RP800.1 and a RP600.5 and it kicked my last JL systems ass hands down at 1/2 the price. I'll never go back. Thanks Skar for producing such nice quality products for a decent price.
We put four of the SK65Ms on our Can Am X3 and they outperform SxS with fosgate and jl audio all day.. Friends of ours are now about to order them for there’s... Great quality.. They sound is clear all the way through the volume settings.. We are about to put a shallow mount sub on next that we just received from Skar...
Just finished installing them. They are way more robust than the JBLs they replaced. The sound is night and day better. A must buy for those that want JL sound without the JL price.
In my opinion, I find these to be on par with the sound quality of JL audio’s high end speakers. I’ve now owned both, these speakers produce an excellent full range sound all the way through the volume range, they are loud as heck
