Bring big sound to your outdoor adventures

If you're serious about building a rockin' audio system for your boat, ATV, or golf cart, top-quality speakers are an absolute must. Rockford Fosgate's RM1652 marine speakers are built to sound great outdoors, with True Marine Grade components and the performance you need to get the sound you want.

Designed for all-weather use

These marine speakers feature rugged grilles that look great and stand up to blistering sunlight and damaging moisture. Underneath, you'll find a UV-treated polypropylene cone, durable Santoprene rubber surround, and a rugged Aramid fiber spider. The 1" volcano dome tweeter is built into the grille for enhanced performance and durability. The end result is a speaker that's tough enough to endure the pounding of big wakes and rough terrain without losing its power or performance. You and your crew will enjoy these speakers for seasons to come.

They sound crisp and clear at low or high volumes. Sound great with Jensen head unit and no amp. Way louder than the Jensen component system my boat came with.

Product Research

Features

Marine Tested: Rockford Fosgate uses industry standard tests (ASTM B117 salt/fog and ASTM D4329 sunlight, moisture, and heat) to ensure the RM1652 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.

Tweeters: The 1" dome tweeters are made of LCP (liquid crystal polymer), a high strength/light weight material, die cast into a volcano design. 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.

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 6 dB/octave high pass.

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.

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 Rockford Fosgate optimize the speaker's motor structure, voice coil alignment, and suspension to yield the best possible performance.

Stainless Steel: The mounting hardware is stainless steel to resist corrosion.

Thanks for your question. The grille dimensions are as follows: Height = 1.058" Length = 6.763" Width = 6.763" Hope this helps. [ Kenny  May 16, 2017 ]  Staff
The grills on these RM1652 marine speakers are fixed to the basket an cannot be removed so, no, you would not be able to use factory grill covers with these speakers. I hope that helps. My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=5 [ Ryan  Sep 24, 2016 ]  Staff
