So you’re looking for the best wakeboard tower speakers?
Whether entertaining friends at the dock or at anchor or simply having a blast while towing your buddies on a wakeboard, other than haul-out and winter work, your boat is only about having as much fun as you can with your clothes on (okay, sometimes with your clothes off as well!!!).
Music is core to that pleasure.
There are a large number of wakeboard tower speakers on the market today that you can buy.
So many indeed you may struggle to work out what set is right for you.

Let’s first look at what you should be looking for and then give three ideas as to what speakers you should choose.
What to look for in the best wakeboard tower speaker?
There’s four essential criteria you should compare when you are looking for the best wakeboard tower speakers:
- Your budget: You may be surprised but you will find decent speakers for as little $75, that will last a few seasons without being replaced. Yes, you can spend ten times that on speakers too and you get what you pay for there!
- Wattage: The higher the power output the louder the music.
- This is linked to frequency range – the better the range the more detail you will hear in your music.
- Durability: The marine environment is a tough one. Even at the dock the salt air and humidity will destroy almost everything manmade eventually. That means you should be looking for something that isn’t only rated for marine use as a minimum but will take a lot of abuse.
With these criteria in mind, let’s now look at the three best wakeboard speakers we think are on the market today.
#1 Best wakeboard tower speakers
DS18 CF6TPBNEO 6.5″ High Performance, Marine Grade IP65 Rated Wakeboard Tower Speakers
The first thing to note about these speakers is the power.
At 550 Watts they will make themselves heard loud and clear over the engine even at high revs!
That will keep you in the party vibe even while you are going at 25 knots plus with a a cheese eating grin on your face.
The DS18 CF6TPBNEO 6.5” high performance speakers have a frequency response of 60Hz to 221kHz, allowing for a lot of detail to the music.
Get the high and low notes of your favourite tunes as you are out on the water.
As to durability? These speakers are designed to shake off whatever old Neptune throws at them with their UV-compliant high gloss, high polymer with resin and fiberglass Composite casing.
They are designed to be taken from boat to boat too, should you wish to upgrade your waterborne toy…
#2 – Best budget wakeboard tower speakers
Lanzar AQWB65W Two-way Marine Wakeboard Tower Speaker
Coming in at around a tenth of the price of the DS18s above, you will still get a lot of bang for your buck with these speakers!
They will be heard loud and proud even at higher revs with their 500W of output too.
With their 0.5″ superior dome tweeter and sub-tweeter, as well as a 6.5″ high-quality polypropylene cone and a 1″ high-temperature Kapton voice coil, you will get high quality surround sound from the Lanzar speakers.
They are designed to take a bit of abuse too – the heavy duty plastic cabinet and butyl rubber surround will survive a fair few seasons while looking and sounding box-fresh.
#3 Best wakeboard tower speakers for the money
BOSS Audio Systems MRWT40 Marine Waketower Speaker System
Though definitely not as powerful as the other two speakers (at 400W) we look at above, the BOSS Audio Systems MRWT40 speakers produce the quality sound you’d expect from a marine and road audio brand like BOSS.
The tweeter dome on these speakers is designed to radiate higher frequency sound to a wider field, meaning that more people aboard can hear more detail of the music as you blast along the waves or enjoy a beer or three at anchor.
As ever with a top audio brand like BOSS Audio, the MRWT40s are designed to take all sorts of punishment yet still perform to the high quality they were made with.
The rubber and polyurethane case will ensure that you keep on rocking with some of the best looking speakers on the market today for many seasons to come!
To add to this these come with a three year online dealer warranty, meaning that BOSS Audio are very confident of the promises they make.
Has this helped you?
Given the hundreds of wakeboard tower speakers on offer today you could be a little confused as to what to buy.
With our suggestions in mind that should be a thing of the past. Happy boating!
