Clarion's 6-1/2" CM1624T marine tower speakers will bring serious audio performance to your boat, plus they'll add a cool look to your tower. Like all Clarion marine gear, these speakers are built tough for life on the water. High-impact grilles and Clarion's exceptional waterproofing will ensure years of great sound.

Serious sound for your wakeboard tower

If you're going to invest in a set of marine speakers, you want to know that your new speakers can be heard over engine noise and wind roar. These powerful Clarions will do exactly that, and you'll also be impressed with the depth and detail they bring to your tunes.

These full-range speakers will handle up to 80 watts RMS (200 watts peak) and they're tough enough to handle high volume all day long. With mica-injected polypropylene woofer cones, 1" PEI dome tweeters, and big, brawny magnets, these speakers have heft and quality that you'll notice the moment you take them out of the box.

Design your own light show

LED lighting adds an undeniable cool factor to any vessel. You can wire the built-in RGB LEDs to provide a permanent color scheme, or integrate them into your existing LED controller for a customizable look. The red, green, and blue lights can generate over 16 million color combos, so you can create the look you like

Made for marine use

Clarion designs their marine gear to stand up to broiling sun, driving rain, salt, spray, and the other realities of life on the water. With rugged, high-impact plastic baskets and waterproof audio and light connectors, these speakers are ready for anything. Clarion includes two sets of grilles – black and silver – inspired by the propeller design found on Virginia-class submarines! All Clarion marine speakers are designed to meet or exceed industry standards for UV-ray, salt, fog, and moisture resistance.

Use the lightweight aluminum 360° swivel to point your tunes where you want them to go, or get the speakers out of the way.

Mounting gear included

These compact, powerful speakers come with all the hardware you need to install them on your wakeboard tower. The package includes both bar and surface mounting brackets, plus 1.5", 1.75", 2", 2.5", and 2.75" spacers. Clarion also offers storage covers for these speakers.

Features

Overview: The Clarion CM1624T 2-way marine tower speakers feature a 6-1/2" injection-molded polypropylene woofer and 1" PEI dome tweeter, capable of handling up to 80 watts RMS/200 watts peak power, housed in weather-resistant enclosures that meet or exceed ASTM D4329 for UV exposure, ASTM B117 for salt and fog exposure, and IP55 Water Ingress Protection. An optional all-weather protective neoprene cover (sold separately) can add even more weather protection.

Mounting: The CM1624T marine speakers include built-in stainless steel brackets and multiple spacers, for both bar and surface mounting, with lightweight aluminum mounts that allow the speakers to swivel 360˚ for flexible mounting options.

RGB Lighting: Both of the CM1624Ts feature built-in RGB (Red, Green, Blue) LEDs for adding colored illumination to the speakers. Individual wires for each color allow the speakers to be wired for either a static color (no additional hardware necessary) or can be used with an optional RGB LED controller (sold separately) letting you create over 16 million combinations of colors.

Customer Q&A

13 questions already asked

Q
can you link your phone to 2 pairs of the same speakers at the same time?
[ Reagan  Apr 23, 2022 ]
1 answer
A
The speakers are not Bluetooth, they hook up to your amp or head unit the same way any standard mount speaker would. These are just marine speakers mounted in pods that can then mount to your tower.
[ ANTHONY  Apr 24, 2022 ]
Q
Can these be used on a Can-Am spyder or Ryker?
[ chino  Mar 10, 2022 ]
1 answer
A
Yes provided you modify the mount for a flush surface install (just like any other tower speaker).
[ Glenn  Mar 10, 2022 ]
Q
Do they swivel on the clamp so you can adjust the angle of the speaker?
[ JWood  Aug 09, 2021 ]
2 answers
A
This is George :-) Also would like to emphasis a power amp and noise suppression device to avoid noise interference generated from boat motor.
[ Joe  Aug 09, 2021 ]
A
Yes,,, they come with an Allan wrench (for the slot) to allow the movement.
[ Joe  Aug 09, 2021 ]
Q
do these need an amplifier? and do they come with any wires?
[ Jovani  Oct 18, 2020 ]
3 answers
A
Yes they come with wires 18" or so. Yes on a amp. I installed with out an Amp. They have big magnets that need a amp. I contacted customer support and they concurred. Boating season ended so I have not yet added a amp.
[ Roger  Oct 18, 2020 ]
A
Yes, you need either an amplifier or enough watts off of your head unit (stereo receiver) to drive them. They come with just a few inches of wire that need to be spliced to longer lengths of wire you'll need to buy to reach your amp or head unit.
[ BRIAN C.  Oct 18, 2020 ]
A
I'm not the greatest person to answer this in great technical detail. But they'll need at bare min a head unit with some power to get them driving. I've got an amp pushing them and they work great. And you'll need wire. Either normal speaker wire if you don't want the led color. Or a cable w the led wire if you do.
[ Brian  Oct 18, 2020 ]
Q
My waketower has 2" tubing. Will the mounts fit this diameter?

[ DENNIS  Sep 16, 2020 ]

Q
Can I use these as just normal tower speakers by not wiring the RGB, or will that somehow make them not work? Thanks!
[ Brian  Jun 15, 2020 ]
1 answer
A
You do not need to wire the LED lights. They will sound the same with those wires left disconnected
[ Paul  Jun 30, 2020 ]  Staff
Q

[ meccabucks  Apr 08, 2022 ]

[ prince  Apr 16, 2022 ]

[ Rodolfo Estrada  Apr 09, 2022 ]

[ Mike  Feb 25, 2021 ]

Q
any way to mount these to a flat surface? I have a radar arch I don't have any tubes to mount too. can I buy brackets for these speakers?
[ Chris  Jun 10, 2020 ]
2 answers
A
If you took the top half of the circle mount off you could mount to flat. Don't think it's designed that way but it would work
[ Gordon  Aug 05, 2020 ]
A
i mounted on tubes, i don't know if they can be mounted on a flat surface. the experts at crutchfield would know
