High-output horn tweeters for high-volume fun

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 Punch Series PM282HW wakeboard tower speakers combine high-output horn tweeters, marine-grade enclosures, and innovative technology for powerful marine audio performance.

Tough, marine-ready enclosures

Each rugged UV-, moisture-, and salt-resistant speaker is housed in a high-density polyethylene enclosure with a sturdy stainless steel grille. These enclosures meet tough UV and Salt-Fog industry standards so they'll hold up for many seasons on the water. A quick-release design makes it easy to remove them for cleaning or storage.

To install your Rockford Fosgate speakers on a tubular wakeboard tower, you'll need cast-aluminum, variable diameter (1-1/2" to 2-3/4") C-clamps (sold separately). With the clamps in place, you can rotate the speakers up to 359 degrees, sending the sound in the direction you want.

Perfect addition

Crutchfield customer from Newaygo, MI on 8/23/2019

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

We love them, they aren't too heavy or hard to install and they almost match what came on our boat

Pros: Lightweight, easy to install, great sound

Cons: Base didn't match the boat tower so we had to buy the clamps

Make sure you add some silicone sealant to the area where the electrical hook up is. After 1 year one of mine quit working only to find the the speaker can was about 1/3 full of water. Too late, one of my expensive speakers was ruined. Not a happy person right now.

Pros: Fantastic sound quality at high volume.

Cons: Not sealed very well where connection is. Great other than that.

PM282HW

I already had tower speakers (Infinity 6000m) for my boat, but the speaker would not perform to my standards and were more trouble then what its was worth. When pulling riders they and myself had a hard time hearing the tunes. I began looking for a pair of HLCD (Horn Loaded Compression Drivers). I really wanted something that could project my music and really liked the look of Rockford Fosgate's PM282HW. After installing them and actively listening to them I'm super pleased. If I could I would buy all of my Friends a pair for their boat, so they too would quit wasting hard earned money.

Product Research

Features

Overview: The Rockford Fosgate Punch M2 PM282HW wakeboard tower speakers contain two sealed enclosures made of white high density poly-ethylene, each housing one 8" woofer and one 1" high output horn tweeter. The enclosure is capped off by a stainless steel sport grille. The speakers 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 8" 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 lightweight and rigid for decreased distortion and improved bass response. The super-efficient 1" horn tweeters deliver extended high frequencies for clean, loud audio that can be heard and enjoyed by everyone.

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.

Mounting: The PM282HW speakers use adjustable cast aluminum mounts and stainless steel hardware, designed for mounting each speaker on a flat surface. A steel wire safety lanyard is included for securing the speakers. When mounted, the speaker can swivel 359°, and locked in place using the supplied Security Torx bolt. Optional matching tower speaker clamps can be added for mounting the speakers to 1.5" to 2.75" diameter tubing. When not in use, you can cover the speakers with the optional PM28-SPF neoprene covers.
