Overview

Our take on the Rockford Fosgate M282-WAKE

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 M282-WAKE wakeboard tower speakers employ high-quality 8" drivers, marine-grade enclosures, and innovative technologies to make sound everyone can enjoy — whether they're in the boat or at the end of the tow rope.

Sound that will conquer the open water

Built-tough enclosures

Each rugged UV-, moisture-, and salt-resistant speaker in this system is housed in a high-density polyethylene enclosure sporting a stylish stainless steel grille. For unlimited mounting flexibility, each enclosure features a variable diameter, cast-aluminum C-Clamp that you can rotate 360 degrees, directing the sound in the direction you want. Your speaker wire is routed through the mounting tube and bracket for a clean, "no wires" look. And these enclosures meet tough UV and Salt-Fog industry standards so they'll hold up for many seasons on the water.

Innovative technology for better bass

Rockford Fosgate employs their Vertical Attach Surround Technique (VAST) to significantly increase the woofers' effective cone area. The bridge-mounted aluminum dome tweeter allows the oversized woofer to travel freely, so you'll enjoy bigger sound and better bass than comparably sized wakeboard tower speakers.

I installed these in my MB B52. It has great sound, very crisp, riders can hear music while out wake boarding or tubing

Features

Overview: The Rockford Fosgate M282-Wake wakeboard tower speaker system contains two sealed enclosures made of high density poly-ethylene, each housing one 8" woofer and one 1" tweeter. They 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 light weight and rigid for decreased distortion and improved bass response. The 1" aluminum dome tweeters are bridge mounted, useful in a marine speaker because no opening through the middle of the woofer for the mounting post is needed.

Mounting: The M282-Wake speakers use adjustable cast aluminum mounting clamps, designed to fit wakeboard tower tubes from 1-1/2" to 2-3/4" diameter. Once the speakers are in place, but before the brackets are tightened, you can adjust the mounting angle. After mounting, the speakers can still swivel almost 360°.

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.

What size amp [ Adam  Jul 18, 2014 ]
We don't show a listing for the weight of each speaker individually. However, the package of the two speakers weighs in at 21.9 lbs. I'd estimate from that, that each speaker is around 10 pounds. [ Jeff  May 21, 2014 ]  Staff
