  1. Hi Ben, on a powerboat it probably wouldn’t matter as much, but if sailors mount these kind of speakers in a cockpit they must be aware that the only thing keeping water from pouring into the boat is the thin diaphragm of the speaker cone. Especially if the boat is heading offshore. It would be great if these manufacturers would create a cover box for the back side of the speaker that would help seal it…

      there are some options in the market. You must also be careful or you will loose all the bass

      Many offshore boats I’ve seen with open cockpits, or other areas where a penetration through fiberglass might lead to a bad result, will use box speakers mounted on a rail. The sound quality of these speakers frequently leave a lot to be desired but there are now some much better options. For example, Fusion and JL both sell their high-end speakers in enclosures for wake boarding boats. These could be a good fit if you’re after better sound quality.
