The only thing better than spending a day on the lake or ocean wakeboarding and waterskiing is doing it while listening to your favorite tunes. That’s where these tower speakers can help. Despite the name, the music they pump can be equally enjoyed by passengers on the vessel as those getting towed behind it.
There is no difference between standard boat speakers and tower speakers, however, you can’t just go out and buy any old boat speakers and put them on your wakeboard tower. This is because dedicated tower speakers come with waterproof enclosures that keep the speaker protected, will provide an easy method for mounting and feature waterproof terminals for connecting your tower speakers to your head unit. Without this enclosure, or at the very least a homemade one of some kind, the speaker wouldn’t be able to stand up to the elements for an extended period.
Whether you want a dual or individual enclosure or an eye-catching illuminated model, there are tower speakers that work well for all kinds of boating.
Many manufacturers do sell empty enclosures. If you already have a pair of boat speakers you like, you may be able to use them by simply buying an enclosure. They come in different sizes, usually ranging from 4 to 8 inches, as well as in a 6 x 9-inch option, so make sure to measure your speaker to ensure it will fit in the enclosure you are considering.
With a 6 x 9-inch poly injection cone, two 1-inch mylar tweeters, and a 2.5-inch midrange cone, the MRWT69 produces a balanced sound, making it well-suited to many genres of music. It is powerful too, capable of taking up to 550 watts of peak power.
Crafted with a durable, marinized metal enclosure and featuring titanium tweeters, these tower speakers can stand up to years of exposure to the elements and will sound great while doing so. They come as a pair and each one can handle 300 watts of peak power.
This versatile package comes with separate speakers and enclosures, both of which are waterproof and rust-proof, so you can install them in your boat or on your tower as needed. The set also includes 16.4 feet of wire and mounting hardware.
While these 4-inch speakers won’t blow your ears off, they are reasonably priced, easy to install and made to withstand extreme conditions. They feature quick-fit terminals and come with a 3-year warranty to give you peace of mind.
