Equipping your sport boat with wakeboard tower speakers vs. standard marine boat speakers for better wakeboarding music enjoyment
If you’re an avid wakeboarder, you’ve likely already chosen a great board and invested in a tower. What more do you need?
Well, if you have been relying on your boat speakers, it’s time to consider wakeboard tower speakers. Boat speakers just don’t cut it when it comes to listening to your favorite tunes while trailing behind the boat. They can barely exceed the engine noise even in top volume and don’t stand a chance of being heard at a distance from the boat. They were designed for the enjoyment of onboard occupants.
Tower speakers, on the other hand, are designed to give you smooth and balanced sound while gliding along on the water, sometimes far behind the boat. No matter which configuration of tower speakers you choose, they are sure to leave boat speakers in the dust.
Here are some top choices to increase your wakeboarding listening pleasure.

All wakeboard speakers are designed to boost the audio performance in your boat, and send your tunes back to the wakeboarder. This is something that a boat’s speakers simply cannot do. The choice of how many speakers or the size of the speakers is largely a matter of personal taste, the size of the boat, and how far back you want the sound to travel.
In summary, adding a set of wakeboard speakers to your boat’s wakeboard tower will allow you to enjoy the full wakeboard experience. No matter which configuration you choose, each of the featured selections is sure to increase your enjoyment on the water and bring the party to you while you are practicing your moves.
