Tower Speakers 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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
Butyl Rubber
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.
400 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.
200 watts
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
Tower Mounting Brackets
This will indicate whether the item is compatible with mounting brackets and whether they are included in the initial purchase. Mounting brackets are typically used in attaching the speaker to a tower, however some mounting brackets allow the speaker to be attached to the deck of the boat.
Yes (Included)
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.

I recently bought the Rockford fosgate wake speakers and they turned out great. Very easy to install and they sound terrific. The full 360 motion is extremely awesome so can aim the sound to where you are at. Woukd buy again. Great choice.

Great amp for the price

July 21, 2014

I installed this 4 channel amp in my boat to replace the blown out Precision Power amp that only lasted a couple seasons. I am powering 12 Polk Audio speakers with the Fosgate and it plays much louder with greater punch than the old one. So far no problems. I would recommend this amp

Verified Purchase
Bought for my Odes UTV

July 6, 2015

My wife wanted a loud stereo to combat the music coming from boats in our cove. After looking all over the internet I settled on the RF M282B-Wake. They were the biggest, baddest weather resident speakers I could find for a reasonable price. They mounted easily on the roll bars and look great. Installed with a Lanzar amp and my wife loves them. They are loud and have great sound at high levels. I back my UTV down near the water and crank it up. You can hear the music all through our cove, several hundred feet away. Sonic had the best price with shipping for my entire order of RF speakers, Sony marine radio, installation kit, and Lanzar amp. The last two items I found on Sonic's open box closeout deals, great buy. I am not an aficionado but these speakers sound great. I would definitely recommend these speakers.

Will i need an amp for this or can I plug and play?
Cfischer1 on Feb 14, 2015
Best Answer: You could plug and play but you won't get the proper performance from the speakers , especially mounted on a tower. I am likely going to be getting two more for my tower , due to the background noise drowning, just two speaker out.

I can find specifics. the manual states '1 set'. Does the Rockford Fosgate M282B come with two woofer/tweeter drivers or is this a single driver?
