Marine Speakers or Regular Door Speakers for the Sound Bar?

I found a pair of marine speakers that will fit in the sound bar but I'm not too sure if its a good idea or not. It makes sense to put water-resistent speakers on the sound bar or is it a better idea to go with regular ones?

Marine speakers are weather resistant because they use polypropylene speaker cones, which would be good in a Jeep that may occasionally get left open to the elements. However, polypropylene speaker cones are very common and are sold right along side paper cone speakers in just about any audio store. They can sound great too. I would go that way over paper cone speakers, and did so in my TJ.

I agree with Jerry, The marine speakers are a great idea for jeeps. The nice thing is that they are finally making a wider variety of sizes along with quality brand names. I personally plan to use marine speakers once I get around to upgrading my audio system and will use them in my sound bar along with my dash. You could probably get away with regular speakers in the sound bar since they face down and have some sort of cover, however I will still use marine speakers.

I had some $40 Pioneers regular speakers from best buy. Leave my top off all summer. Speakers are still there and doing fine. My head unit is a whole nother story though...

If you are upgrading go with the marine just for the added insurance. I had my speakers in my civic before I had the jeep so I transfered them over for free...

I am running Polk/Momo speakers from Crutchfield in my soundbar, and left my top off for quite a few rainstorms. Not once did they ever get wet....They are also made from carbon fiber to help resist moisture, so that might help as well.
