Our take on the Rockford Fosgate M262

by Ken Nail
Rockford Fosgate

Better sound quality on your boat

If you want to rock your boat with high-performance sound, install a pair of these Rockford Fosgate M262 6-1/2" speakers in your system. These marine speakers are equipped with sharp-looking stainless steel grilles that'll add a touch of style to the interior. And you won't have to worry about how long they'll last — these rugged speakers feature UV-, moisture-, and salt-resistant components so you'll be enjoying them for years.

Rockford Fosgate M262

Each aluminum alloy tweeter provides crystal-clear highs so you'll hear all the musical details. The bridge-mounted tweeter allows the woofer's mineral-filled polypropylene cone to move freely, so these speakers kick out extra-strong bass.

Highlights:

  • 2-way 6-1/2" marine speakers (pair)
  • injection-molded mineral-filled polypropylene woofer with TPE surround
  • UV-stable Centrex® injection molded plastic parts and gold-plated input terminals
  • 1" bridge-mounted aluminum alloy tweeter
  • power handling: 75 watts RMS (150 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 53-22,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 88 dB
  • top-mount depth: 2-7/8"
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Our Product Research Team

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box, verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.

Features

Marine Tested: Rockford Fosgate uses industry standard tests (ASTM B117 salt/fog and ASTM D4329 sunlight, moisture, and heat) to ensure the M262 speakers will provide optimum performance in the difficult marine environment.

Woofers: The woofer cones are injection molded, mineral filled polypropylene with UV inhibitors. This molding process assures a uniform cone thickness for superior linearity and clarity. It is also light weight and rigid for decreased distortion and improved bass response.

TPE Surrounds: The TPE surrounds (Thermo-Plastic Elastomer, a synthetic rubber) are UV and salt/fog resistant.

Tweeters: The speakers feature 1" aluminum alloy dome tweeters. The tweeters are bridge mounted, useful in a marine speaker because no opening through the middle of the woofer for the mounting post is needed. The tweeter features a stainless steel grille and is UV and moisture resistant.

ICC Crossover: The ICC (Integrated Concealed Crossover) simplifies installation and protects the crossover by concealing it inside the basket, creating a cleaner look and easier installation. The crossover is 12 dB/octave high pass, 6 dB/octave low pass, and has an integrated tweeter protection circuit.

Polymer Basket: The Centrex, UV-resistant polymer baskets protect the speakers' internal components from the marine environment.

Infinite-Baffle Operation: The speakers are designed for infinite-baffle operation and can be installed in a variety of locations, without the need for a dedicated enclosure.

VAST Surround: The Vertical Attach Surround Technique (VAST) increases a speaker's effective radiating cone area without increasing the size of the basket.

FlexFit Basket: The Flex Fit frame utilizes slots (where possible) instead of single screw sized holes; allowing slight adjustment of the speaker when mounted.

Speaker Terminals: These speaker terminals are gold plated for corrosion resistance. There is a spare set of terminals for easily adding a second pair of speakers (optional, sold separately).

Magnetic Shielding: The motor structure is fully shielded to minimize their effect on your boat's compass and autopilot functions.

Stainless Steel: The grille and mounting hardware are stainless steel to resist corrosion.
