Best Marine Tower Speakers


Need help deciding which tower speakers are best for your boat?

We have broken down the best tower speakers by size and tweeter so that you can ensure that you get the best products for your boat. Here are some helpful reminders before we start.
  • If you have a brand preference, go with it. If you are a Rockford person, we recommend Rockford Fosgate. If you have Wet Sounds speakers in your boat now, you should probably get Wet Sounds tower speakers. The same holds true for JL Audio, Fusion, Kicker, Memphis, etc..
  • Make sure you have the right amount of power for your tower speakers. If you only have 100 watts per channel, Wet Sounds REV 10's with 300W RMS power handling are probably not a good idea unless you are planning on upgrading your amplifier.

Best Tower Speaker for Sound Quality

JL Audio M6 ETXv3 Tower Speakers

The JL Audio M6 ETXv3 tower speakers will be the best tower speakers for sounnd quality. The M6 ETXv3 enclosures come in both 7.7" and 8.8" sizes, with three color/grill options, and each grill option is available with or without RGB LEDs. The JL Audio M6 speakers have large, silk dome tweeters that are specially treated to withstand the marine environment. These speakers just sound better. The M6 is considered by many to be the best sounding speaker JL Audio makes. Now when you put that speaker in an enclosure, it is going to sound even better with improved low end output. The M6 speakers will still get plenty loud but, they are not going to give you the volume and distance you get from a horn tweeter.

The JL Audio M6 ETXv3 speakers are perfect if you use your boat's stereo system while it is docked or if you want to ensure that the people in-tow have great sound quality, and you don't necessarily need it to be crazy loud for that person.

The mounting hardware although shown in the pictures is not included with any of the ETXv3 enclosures. Both fixed and swivel clamps are available as well as surface mount and tower specific hardware.

JL Audio M6 ETXv3 are the best sounding marine tower speakers



6.5" Tower Speakers
Best 6.5" Coaxial Tower Speakers
JL Audio M3 VeX Pods

I swear this will not just be JL Audio products, but early on it does feel that way. The JL Audio M3 VeX pods are the best 6.5" speaker pods in our opinion. For the price, the sound quality, and the style I do not think there is anything better. The JL M3 speakers are solid and simply sound amazing. There are other options that may be within $30 of the VeX once you add the clamps, but for what you get, you can't beat these. The 6.5" JL Audio VeX pods come in satin black with the gunmetal sport grills or in gloss white with the white sport grills.

The mounting hardware although shown in the pictures is not included with any of the VeX pods.

Best 6.5" Horn Tweeter Tower Speakers
Memphis MXA62T

The Memphis MXA62T speakers win the award for the best 6.5" horn tweeter tower speakers because they are the only ones that make a 6.5" horn tweeter tower speaker. So while there isn't much to compare them to, the good news is that they are competitively priced when you compare them to most other 6.5" tower speakers. The main advantage with these Memphis pods is that they come with the horn tweeter while the others have dome tweeters. Apples to apples, these will just play WAY louder. The Memphis MXA62T speakers come with LEDs built in and include clamps. You can choose between gloss white and titanium for the enclosure/grill color.

8" Tower Speakers
Best 8" Coaxial Tower Speakers
Kicker KMTC8 & KMFM8

When it comes to the 8" coaxial tower speakers, Kicker is our favorite. There are two different models and each comes in either charcoal or white. The KMTC8 comes with a stainless steel swivel clamp and is designed to mount to a bar. The KMFM8 is a flat or surface mounted enclosure that is designed to mount to a flat surface. The 8" Kicker coaxial speakers have 1" titanium tweeters that will play bright and loud without sound harsh like an aluminum tweeter might. These enclosures come with RGB LEDs built into the grille and these can handle plenty of power to get loud. WHen you look at the power handling, the fact that RGB LEDs come standard, the titanium tweeter, and the price point, the Kicker 8" coaxial tower speakers are tough to beat.

Kicker KMTC8 Best 8

Best 8" Horn Tweeter Tower Speakers
Rockford Fosgate PM282H

The Rockford Fosgate 8" horn tower speakers are probably the best value among all of the tower speakers despite being 8's instead of 9's, 10's, or 11's like the Kicker and Wet Sounds speakers. In the 8" size, it comes down to the Rockford horn tower speakers or the Wet Sounds REV 8. Given the performance of the Rockford 8" and the price point, they are not only better than the REV 8 but they also cost less.

The Rockford Punch 8" horn tower spekaers are offered in either gloss black or gloss white with stainless steel grills. The mounting clamps are not included with the speakers but if you purchase the clamps, the speakers will swivel 359 degrees. The will not spin freely, but you can set them at any angle you would like.

Best 9"+ Horn Tweeter Tower Speakers
Wet Sounds REV 10

Wet Sounds invented the horn loaded tower speaker and the continue to dominate this market. The REV 10 speakers come with beautiful, swivel clamps that allow you to aim the speaker in any direction you want. The speakers can swivel a full 360 degrees and lock in place without requiring you to disconnect. These speakers handle 300 watts of RMS power and are designed to project the sound to extreme distances to ensure that the people you are towing can hear the music crystal clear. The horn loaded compression drivers in these speakers are insane. You can't compare the output of these REV 10's with anything else available. Wet Sounds continues to push the envelope in marine audio by listening to customers and constantly improving their already, top of the line products.
