Our take on the Rockford Fosgate M282 by Crutchfield's Ken Nail
Better sound quality on your boat
If you want to rock your boat with high-performance sound, install a pair of these Rockford Fosgate M282 8" speakers into your system. These marine speakers are equipped with sharp-looking stainless steel grilles that'll add a touch of style to the interior. And you won't have to worry about how long they'll last these rugged speakers feature UV-, moisture-, and salt-resistant components so you'll be enjoying them for years.
Each aluminum alloy tweeter provides crystal-clear highs so you'll hear all the musical details. The bridge-mounted tweeter allows the woofer's big mineral-filled polypropylene cone to move freely, so these speakers kick out extra-strong bass.
Put these in my 305 Sunbridge. Have a 100 watt amp pushing these and they sound GREAT even without a sub. They are a big speaker so make sure you have the room for them.$$$$$ but worth the $. Highly recommended.

Marine Tested: Rockford Fosgate uses industry standard tests (ASTM B117 salt/fog and ASTM D4329 sunlight, moisture, and heat) to ensure the M282 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.
TPE Surrounds: The TPE surrounds (Thermo-Plastic Elastomer, a synthetic rubber) are UV and salt/fog resistant.
Tweeters: The speakers feature 1" aluminum alloy dome tweeters. 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. The tweeter features a stainless steel grille and is UV and moisture resistant.
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 12 dB/octave high pass, 6 dB/octave low pass, and has an integrated tweeter protection circuit.
Polymer Basket: The Centrex, UV-resistant polymer baskets protect the speakers' internal components from the marine environment.
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.
FlexFit Basket: The Flex Fit frame utilizes slots (where possible) instead of single screw sized holes; allowing slight adjustment of the speaker when mounted.
Speaker Terminals: These speaker terminals are gold plated for corrosion resistance. There is a spare set of terminals for easily adding a second pair of speakers (optional, sold separately).
Magnetic Shielding: The motor structure is fully shielded to minimize their effect on your boat's compass and autopilot functions.
Stainless Steel: The grille and mounting hardware are stainless steel to resist corrosion.
