Berg - that water is glass and they are hanging out. underway that 1.58 turns into a spaghetti noodle. Trust me, weight is an issue. Just think what happens when they cross a few wakes?
(god I think I watched this video 5 times) hehe

hehe - love the slow mo in that vid.
I'm more concerned about a mounting bolt getting sheered off (mine are horizontal) than the 1.58 noodling. My kids regularly treat the tower like a jungle gym in the driveway when I turn my back so I figure if it can hold up to them then a few sets of speakers can't be heavier. Of course the kids are not usually hanging back there when we cut across any wakes.
Yeah - it was one of those glass all day days. Had to stop and jump off the big observation tower thing out in the middle a few times.
You think this may be getting too heavy for the 1.58? Maybe after you load the racks up with boards...

Tower Speakers & Subwoofer upgrade
I'm sure the towers have a certain amount of flex built into them. He'll my LSV tower which is 2 3/8 flexes some when pulling the boat on the trailer with nothing hanging from it. Even sky scrapers sway...
