Our take on the Rockford Fosgate M262-WAKE

by Ken Nail
Rockford Fosgate

Sound that will conquer the open water

There's a lot more to building a great wakeboard tower speaker than slapping a woofer and a tweeter into a can. Rockford Fosgate's M262-WAKE wakeboard tower speakers employ high-quality 6-1/2" drivers, marine-grade enclosures, and innovative technologies to make sound everyone can enjoy — whether they're in the boat or at the end of the tow rope.

Built-tough enclosures

Each rugged UV-, moisture-, and salt-resistant speaker in this system is housed in a high-density polyethylene enclosure sporting a stylish stainless steel grille. For unlimited mounting flexibility, each enclosure features a variable diameter, cast-aluminum C-Clamp that can you can rotate 360 degrees, directing the sound in the direction you want. These enclosures meet tough UV and Salt-Fog industry standards so they'll hold up for many seasons on the water.

Innovative technology for better bass

Rockford Fosgate employs their Vertical Attach Surround Technique (VAST) to significantly increase the woofers' effective cone area. The bridge-mounted tweeter allows the oversized woofer to travel freely, so you'll enjoy bigger sound and better bass than comparably sized wakeboard tower speakers.

Overview: The Rockford Fosgate M262-Wake wakeboard tower speaker system contains two sealed enclosures made of high density poly-ethylene, each housing one 6-1/2" woofer and one 1" tweeter. They are designed to attach to your boat's wakeboard tower using the included hardware. Both the speakers and enclosures are treated with UV inhibitors and conform to UV and Salt-Fog industry standards.

Drivers: The 6-1/2" woofers use injection molded, mineral filled polypropylene cones and TPE (Thermo-Plastic Elastomer) surrounds. 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. The 1" aluminum dome tweeters are bridge mounted, useful in a marine speaker because no opening through the middle of the woofer for the mounting post is needed.

Mounting: The M262-Wake speakers use adjustable cast aluminum mounting clamps, designed to fit wakeboard tower tubes from 1-1/2" to 2-3/4" diameter. Once the speakers are in place, but before the brackets are tightened, you can adjust the mounting angle. After mounting, the speakers can still swivel almost 360°.

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