Speaker Specifications

Speaker Size
Refers to the size of the speaker measured in inches. Every vehicle has standard application sizes. Please use our vehicle fitment guide for your vehicle's specific speaker sizes if you do not know them.
8"
Design
The number of individual drivers in a car speaker. Speakers with 2 drivers are known as a 2-way, and 3 drivers are known as a 3-way. Component systems are often referred to as "separates" because the tweeter is not attached to the midwoofer (main speaker driver) and mounts separately in a location such as a door post. Component systems typically come with an external crossover so you can easily adjust the high and low frequencies sent to both the midwoofer and the tweeter. Center channel speakers are great for those looking to have surround sound in their vehicle.
2-way
Tweeter Composition
Materials such as polypropylene, silk, cloth, and paper are the most common, where as many more recent tweeters are now manufactured with composites such as Aluminum, Titanium, Mylar, and other materials.

PEI is an acronym for "Polyetherimide" which is an amorphous, amber transparent, high-performance thermoplastic.

Aluminum
Woofer Composition
Lightweight woofer cone materials are essential for efficient operation. Poly cones produce exceptional sound and are sturdy against various changes in temperature. Paper cones are very efficient, and when treated for moisture resistance, will perform at a high level. Poly refers to polypropylene, which is thermoplastic or fibers that are polymers of propylene. IMPP refers to injection molded polypropylene, a commonly used process and material in speakers.
Injection Molded Polypropylene (IMPP)
Woofer Surround
A speakers surround is part of the suspension system. The surround protects the cone and prevents it from being displaced as it flexes out from the basket. It is usually made of a durable material like treated foam or rubber in order to withstand the strenuous job of producing bass frequencies.
Thermo-Plastic Elastomer
Peak Power Handling
Peak power handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle during a brief musical burst. The RMS power range figure is a much more reliable rating for determining the speaker's power requirements. The Peak power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
200 watts
RMS Power Handling
The RMS power is the amount of power the speaker requires to operate safely and properly. RMS Power Handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle on a continuous basis. We recommend powering your speakers or subwoofer with 80%-120% of its recommended RMS rating. The RMS power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
100 watts
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
90 dB
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
48 - 22000 Hz
Impedance (Per Voice Coil)
The load value (in ohms) that the speakers present to the amplifier per voice coil - the amount of resistance to the current flow. This is a key specification as subs wired in parallel or low impedances can create problems with your amplifier and potentially void all warranties. We encourage you to ask our support department prior to purchase if you do not understand which impedance level will suit your application best.
4 ohms
Top-Mount Depth
The depth when installed on top of the mounting surface. Measured from the bottom of the speaker's magnet to the bottom of the mounting holes on the rim of the speaker.
3-1/2"
Cutout Dimensions
Refers to the dimensions of the hole, measured in inches or millimeters, required to contain the speaker.
7 x 7 
Speaker Grilles
A grating or screen of metal or plastic bars or wires, mounted in front of a speaker as protection. If yes, the speakers will include matching speaker grilles. If no, there are no grilles included.
Yes
Number of Speakers
This is the number of speaker that is included in the package. Each purchase will result in receiving the number of speakers indicated here. Please note that some items will have multiple woofers in the same enclosure. For sets of component speakers, this number will refer to the number of sets of speakers (For example, 2 would indicate the purchase includes 2 woofers and 2 tweeters).

Please refer to the product image and description for further details about the speaker.

On the fence? Don't be - Buy these speakers!

June 22, 2011

I had no idea of the sound these speakers would put out but the reviews I read were all great so I gave them a try. I have a high end MTX amp powering them with 100 watts a piece and my god do they sound great. The bass from these speakers is unbelievable. So unbelievable that it sounds like I have a nice sub in my system but really its just the pair of these speakers. For the money I've never heard better. I would go as fair as to say they sound as good as my Focal 165 KR component set in my truck (Plus these Rockfords produce bass that is at least twice as deep) and those speakers retail for $699

Stereo Cooler that Rocks

January 7, 2014

I started a project for some buddies and myself. We built a stereo cooler for floating the river and to go along on our canoeing trip. We wanted to use 8 inch speakers to achieve the bass response we desired. The M282 work better than expected. I am in a band and consider myself somewhat of an audiophile. I went to eq the system and well at this point have determined not to make any adjustments it sounds great. The speakers are being feed by a 70 watt per channel system and it is crystal clear at full volume. The covers really give the system a nice clean look and make me feel confident that nothing will get to the speakers. The speakers really seem well made.

October 12, 2012

I purchased a pair of the 282, and 2 pair of the 262's for my Formula 260BR. I powered them with the RF M600-4D amp. They sound great and provide plenty of sound for a family boat. If you want knock you off your feet base, you will need a sub, but these will rock any hip hop music with plenty of bass for the casual listener.

Awesome speaker

September 28, 2012

Bought 3 pair for my 25' pontoon boat. Powered by a 600 watt JL amp (100 watts per speaker). Didn't want a subwoofer to lessen the power demand on the batteries. The bass is outstanding, so no subwoofer is needed now. RF specifically made these for boats, thus they boosted the high end so it sounds crystal clear while under way. You would need to spend twice as much to get as good of sound.

Best I ever owned

June 7, 2012

I bought these speakers, a M400-4D amlifier and a RFX9700CD head unit. All from Rockford Fosgate (through Sonic Electronix of course).

It's the best system I ever had. I really enjoy these speakers. Terrific bass. Don't need a sub. Can have a really good sound with only these two speakers, even with the motor at full speed (Outboard two stroke).

Real good quality.

Amazing sound for my boat

March 13, 2012

I have 4 of these installed on my Mako 261 driven by a Soundstream 100x4 amp. The sound these speakers produce was above and beyond anything I had envisioned. The clarity of music throughout all frequencies including lower bass frequencies was superior to anything I've ever heard on any boat.

Great Sound

March 8, 2012

I'm running 6 of the m282 and 1 m212m4 on my 24 Sea Pro. I'll tell you they sound good. I'm running only 30 watts to each speaker and they have great bass. The 12 with 300 watts made the sound come alive but by themselves they still rock. Only problem i see is the tweeter is Aluminum and can crack or dent with heavy water. Spray grill is very nice and looks great. I'll see how they do after this fishing season in South Florida. I would also say they sound better than JL and half the price GOOD BUY 4 the buck!! Rockford came through with this line of speakers.

JL finally has serious competition!!

February 13, 2012

I never even thought of the RF M282's. I was set on two sets of JL M770 speakers until I saw a high end setup with RF M282's. The specs on the speakers made me wonder whether I was making a mistake. I hooked them up to a XN3410 amp and I was blown away. The specs don't do these speakers justice. I think it sounds better than most comparable jl systems.

These speakers ROCK

January 11, 2012

I installed 6 M282's in my Baja .38 Special and I am very satisfied with the sound quality these speakers create, I almost dont need subwoofers. They have great bass and highs. Its hard to get great sound from a boat system but these are some of the best marine speakers I have ever heard. I recommend these to anyone building a high end stereo for their boat.

Installed in a Sea Ray 260 Sundancer

December 9, 2011

Wow! These speakers have great base and high quality sound for a marine speaker! I installed two in the radar arch and two down low with a ten inch Rockford marine sub! They are awesome! I have received many compliments about how good the sound is with no distortion. Just give these babies the power and they will perform!!! I think they look better installed than any other brand as well!
