Wakeboarding is a fun sport that can be enjoyed by people that like to surf, water ski, or snow board. Wakeboarding uses a board that is towed behind a boat with the rider on the board. Riders surf through the wakes created by the boat as it moves through the water. The sport can be done on any open body of water, including river, lakes and the ocean. The main difference between wakeboarding and water skiing is the use of a wakeboard tower attached to the boat. The wakeboard tower provides the area that the towing cord is attached to, which raises the cord higher off the water's surface. Wakeboard towers come in different sizes and offer customizations using accessories such as mirrors, lights and tower speakers
. Wakeboard tower speakers
come in different sizes, colors and types so that a person can customize their wakeboard tower however they desire to create their own custom look. The speakers can be connected to any boat audio system and provide additional speaker output.
Speakers are typically added across the top of the rear horizontal part of the wakeboard bar. Tower speakers
are available in single barrel, double barrel, and can include custom packages that offer sets of three and four speakers. The speakers can be combined such that a person can have both single barrel and double barrel speakers on one wakeboard tower bar. Some speakers are permanently mounted, whereas others are available that can be quickly released without having to disassemble the wakeboard tower in order to remove them. Wiring wakeboard tower speakers
can be easily hidden by running the wiring through the inside of the wakeboard tower and makes for a more professional looking installation. The speaker wire from the bottom of the tower is then connected to the stereo. Electrical tape or duct tape should be used to wrap the exposed portions of the wiring to provide protection from water and comes in many different colors. There are different ways that a person can connect their wakeboard speakers to their stereo system. However, the most common approach is to connect the boat speakers to the front outputs and connect the wakeboard tower speakers
to the rear inputs.
When using an amp, the bass setting should be set to the lowest possible setting or turned off for the wakeboard speakers. The reason to shut off the bass on the tower speakers
is because the sounds coming out of the speaker will be drowned out by the noise of the boat's motor which will never reach the rider. The range of high frequency and mid-range bass sounds can reach the rider as far back as sixty-five to eight feet behind the boat. Wakeboard tower speakers
