About the Roswell R1 Series 8" x 6.5" Vamp Spin Towers
On the boat and in the water
On the boat and in the water
Roswell has built a speaker system bound to make everybody on and off the boat happy. These R1 Series "vamp spin" tower speakers use an adjustable twin-speaker design that lets you angle one speaker into the boat and one toward your hot-dogger in the water — or pivot them to point in the same direction for double impact. And these don't just look tough, they are tough — with a brushed anodized finish that stands up to the elements.
Roswell includes four weather-sealed enclosures — each 6-1/2" speaker is paired with each 8" speaker. In each enclosure, you'll find a durable woofer and 1" silk dome tweeter mounted in a smart-looking grille. Roswell conceals an integrated crossover network in each speaker for absolute clarity. Handling up to 160 watts RMS, these tower speakers cut through the crash of your wake, the whip of the wind, and the thunder of your motor, serving up vibrant, detailed audio for everyone. Roswell's swiveling clamp system is easy to install and lets you rotate the speakers to suit your situation.
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 Series speakers from doing what they do best for seasons to come.
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.

Enclosure & Drivers: The Roswell R1 8"x6.5" Vamp Spin Tower Speakers feature an all-weather 8" 2-way marine speaker with a side-mounted 6-1/2" (6.5") 2-way marine speaker that can be rotated up to 180˚, providing a wide coverage area. Both speakers feature polypropylene woofer cones with a coaxially mounted 1" silk dome tweeter, and are housed in durable Centrex plastic enclosures designed to withstand the harsh marine environment.
Marine Tested: The R1 Series marine speakers are tested using ASTM standards, 500 hours UV exposure and 500 hours salt fog spray.
RGB LEDs: The R1 8"x6.5" Vamp Spin Tower Speakers include built-in RGB LEDs around the speaker rim on both 2-way drivers, creating a glow on the speaker cones. The rear section of the 8" speaker enclosure is translucent with internally mounted LEDs, allowing the rear housing to glow as well. Depending on what combination of LED wires is connected, they can light red, green, blue, yellow, magenta, 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 tower speaker includes a 30" 6-pin wiring harness that hold both the signal wires and LED power wires. The harnesses include a water tight Deutsch plug, for connecting to the tower speaker, with bare-ended 18 ga. wire on the other end. Both harnesses are encased in a heavy-duty rubber sheath for added protection.
Mounting: The R1 8"x6.5" Vamp Spin Tower Speakers include an attached machine-billet, 360˚ Universal Clamp for attaching the speakers to wakeboard towers and rails. Three sets of clamp inserts are provided for attaching to 1.90", 2.375", and 3.0" diameter tubing.
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.
