Hey y'all,

Any suggestions for good wakeboard tower speakers?

Would like good sound (for the kids) without breaking the bank (for me)!!

If ya know what I mean??

It's DIY project. Have the radio/CD player, now for the speakers and amp.


thx!!

IN my opionion wetsounds is the best way to go, depending on how you classify breaking the bank they may not be the right fit for this project. They will run you around 650-850 per pair depending on the size etc... they will also need a good solid amp to power them. You only need a pair and you will hear them clearly while you are boarding.

If you do go wetsounds,make sure you get the new revolution model - 10" driver. The amp to power these will be $400+ dollars

I have had good luck with the Monster Tower Speakers (http://shop.monstertower.com/c-5-tower-speakers.aspx)

I really like my Samson speakers. Easy on and off with neoprene covers when trailering (no bugs) and the slip on and off easily. Check them out at samsonsports.com

That's a no brainer, Wet Sounds for sure!

Kicker HLCD's are the bomb... I have had a lot of success with these and Earmark Marine can get you a great price on them... For the money they are the best in my opinion.

If you are paying $1200 for the speakers, the $400 becomes insignificant I think. :-)

With something like this though what do you do with the "stock" speaker mounts on the ZFT towers? The Pro80 will at least mount direct to the tower right?

Yea the Pro 80 mounts straight to the tower. I would think for what the OP is looking for the Pro 80's or the Pro 60's would more than do the job.

Monster Tower has the best of all worlds. You can get Polk, Kicker, or Wet Sound drivers:)
