Other Factors We Considered
A wakeboard tower speaker isn’t just about sound quality and price. There are other factors we considered such as look. While a speaker may be the right price and sound perfectly, it just may not necessarily fit with the look of your boat. The size of the speaker is also another factor to consider because if it’s too heavy, too big, or even too small than that’s like paddling across the water instead of gliding. We also really looked into setting up the wakeboard tower speakers since that can be an issue after your purchase and other features like wattage were something we considered as well.
After debating all those features and factors, our favorite wakeboard tower speakers are the Rockford Fosgate M282B-WAKE M2 Wakeboard 8-Inch Tower Speaker as our first and best choice. The MTX TM652WBB 6.5-Inch Wakeboard Speakers for our back-up selection and for our value pick we chose the MCM Custom Audio 60-10031 8″ Marine Wakeboard Two-Way Speaker Pair.
