About the Roswell R1 8
The Roswell experience
The Roswell experience
What began as a homespun start-up out of a family garage in Canada has now become a go-to name in marine audio worldwide. Over two decades later, the folks at Roswell are just as passionate about audio solutions for boating and watersports as when they began. Choosing Roswell audio gear for your boat ensures you'll enjoy innovative sound, contemporary design, and superior build quality every time you venture onto the water.
Immersive sound and soothing lights
These R1 Series speakers use a 1" silk dome tweeter coaxially mounted on a 8" woofer, and Roswell conceals a 2-way crossover network in each speaker for absolute clarity. Winning sound isn't the only thing these marine speakers have going for them — built-in, multi-color LED lighting will transform the deck, according to your mood. Use Roswell's RGB controller (not included) to access pre-programmed colors and patterns for a serious light show.
Built for the outdoors
Roswell designed these superior speakers to endure the extremes of life on the water. Salt, dust, fog, and UV rays can't stop the R1 speakers from doing what they do best for seasons to come.

Marine Tested: The R1 Series marine speakers are tested using ASTM standards, 500 hours UV exposure and 500 hours salt fog spray.
LEDs: There are multi-color LEDs in the back of the tweeter casing, to create a glow on the woofer cone. Depending on what combination of LED wires is connected, they can light red, green, blue, yellow, purple, cyan, or white. A 12 volt power supply is needed to turn the LEDs on. The LEDs can also be controlled using Roswell's RGB Remote Control (sold separately).
Wire Terminal: Each speaker's signal wires and LED power wires are integrated into a 6-pin water tight Deutsch plug. If a Deutsch harness system isn't being used, the plug can be cut off and hard wired.
Klippel Verified: The Klippel distortion analyzer, a device that uses a laser and sophisticated software to do large-scale analysis of drivers in motion, lets Roswell optimize the speaker's motor structure, voice coil alignment, and suspension to yield the best possible performance.
Basket And Grille: The baskets and grilles are Centrex plastic and enclose the woofers' motor systems and 12 dB/octave crossovers to prevent corrosion.
