    Somehow our one speaker on our 2007 Cobalt boat got broken. I searched for a replacement and they are not made anymore. These are the new ones that Sony makes so we bought them. We had been to a couple boat stores and looked at different ones and even bought a different make and installed them but the sound was not great and was much more expensive. My husband returned those and ordered these off Amazon. They are the perfect fit for replacing the old ones and were much easier to install than the other brand. The sound is excellent and they look really nice. Since they are slightly different than the old version, we installed these two in the bow of the boat and kept the others in the back. We do spend a lot of time on our boat in the summer and it is nice to have music. I do think this new version will be stronger especially with the thick plastic across the center of each speaker.

    After 72hrs of continuous cranked music they sound great! Great buy and it is a exact fit replacement for XP-MS1610. Same mounting holes and same inner and outer dimensions. It has a replaceable grill which is also a plus. The cone appears to be made of a better material than the 1610, but time will tell if they stand up to the elements. Photos show a comparison between the new and old speakers, if your old speakers are crackled or the cones are brittle, do yourself a favor and upgrade.
