They are clear as a bell wayyy beyond boarding distances. I tested mine and they are loud and clear beyond 150'. Trust me on this.
Make yourself a carpeted board or something for the tower to rest on. I did that and never take the speakers off and it doesn't hit the cover.2007 Mobius LSV

Not doubting you at all but I believe you tested them with the boat stationary and you walking 150' behind it on land. This is very different than wakeboarding 75'-80' behind the boat at wakeboarding speed, with all the wind and engine noise.
I tested two pairs of SXT65's and XM7's on the same day, powered by the Exile Harpoon. I surfed and wakeboarded with each setup to compare them in the intended conditions. My conclusion is that the XM7's are a bit louder at wakeboard speed, for sure, but the SXT65's sounded much smoother (less harsh) at surfing speed and for the boat occupants. Plus they are much cheaper (for the non quick release version) so I ended up going with the SXT65's. I tend to surf longer than I wakeboard since surfing is fairly effortless so my priority was surfing and for that, the SXT65's win hands down. If my priority was hearing music loud and clear while wakeboarding, then I would have gone with the XM7's.
