What to Know Before Buying Wakeboard Tower Speakers
Monster Tower proudly aligns with the most trusted brands in the marine audio industry. Wet Sounds, Kicker, and Polk all have decades of experience crafting the best speakers in the business. Whether you are looking for single or double barrel speakers, you will get quality sound with our wakeboard tower speaker collection.
All of our speakers are designed to get wet. Even though they mount to the wakeboard tower, they will be inhabiting a high moisture environment around the clock. Monster Tower wakeboard tower speakers come with anodized cans and feature rust-proof components.
Cans are the housing for the speakers. They help protect them from marine environments, so it is important that the aluminum is anodized. Without an anodized finish, aluminum can become vulnerable to oxidation, eventually leading to corrosion. Another way to protect wakeboard tower speakers are with speaker covers. Made with an outdoor poly fabric, these speaker covers are three times thicker than most fabric used. Monster Tower cans have a 5 year warranty.
Single or Double Barrel Speakers?
Single and double barrel speakers share the same quality components and anodized cans, but there are a few differences to note. The double barrel speakers come with a swivel mount and have two speakers instead of one. The swivel mount feature allows the speakers to face two different directions, which can create a more surround sound experience. Wet Sounds, Polk, and Kicker are all available in single or double barreled options.
Polk, Kicker, or Wet Sounds: A Brand Off
Each brand has notoriety in the marine speaker business. For decades, they have had a reputation of manufacturing high quality speakers, complete with a 1 year warranty. Available with the universal insert option, each of these wake speakers will mount to any tubing that falls between 1 5/8” to 2 ½”. Match any of these speakers to your tower, by choosing between polished or black. Even though they all share highly customizable options, take these few things into account before investing in speakers.
