What Speakers do you think are the best of these three? I am looking just to get the basic models.

I sell both Mako and Roswell Speakers. You can't go wrong with either. If you get the Roswell, definitely upgrade to the focals. Probably the best speaker I have ever heard. Then again, you can't beat Mako's 4 speaker/light bar combo. The basics are great spakers too.

I sell Fluid Concepts, one of the best speakers I have ever seen, www.fluidconcepts.net.

the are smaller than Boss or Mako. they have taken up a slightly different approach to building tower speakers than most of the competition. It is fluids philosophy that tower speakers should be loud, clean, and as small a possible. they go through great lengths to make sure that the speakers don't sound like speakers stuffed into a metal can. Just open one up and you can see the difference! they have custom gaskets and custom sound dampeners etc. Also don't believe that tower speakers (of this size 6"-6.5") should reproduce bass since the since that is not what the speakers are designed for and rider will never hear it!! they leave the bass up to the subwoofers inside the boat.

Hey Jon a- What are the retail price differences between the basic Rosewell and Mako speakers. I will probably go with the ones that I like the look of the most. Do the Rosewell Speakers need continuous cleaning as they look like Billet Aluminum? What do you think are the best speakers if I have them hanging out in the rain? Are you supposed to cover these speakers when not in use or are they water resistant? What do you think is the best light system between Mako and Rosewell. I am not using them for night boarding just to see where I am going. Does anyone no how low these speakers hang down as well?

The Makos are $460 for a pair, black or silver. The Roswell's are $765 for a pair of Clarions, they are painted any color you want. The Roswell cleaning is just like any other speaker out there, no harder. All of the speakers are water resistant. Both companies have good lighting systems. The Combo that I was talking about is on the Gravity Games Supra this year. It is pimp

Fluid Concepts has (as well as Mako and Roswell) great stuff, definately worth a look. Not a huge name, but very impressive product! They are a blast to party with as well if you ever get the chance :-)

Wakeside.com has a full lineup of speaker options including Mako, Boss, Fluid and Titan to name a few.
You can pick up a pair of the basic Mako's for $470pair. They also offer them as enclosure only for a mere $350pair.
Stuff them with whatever 6 1/2 you choose.

That's what I was looking at the Wakedesigns MB 3ways. They look sweet and I can only imagine what they sound like, I know MB makes great speakers. I just have to find about 1200 bones somewhere. I would go with the WD 3 ways IMO.
