We spent 28 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top options for this wiki. For many, the tailgate party is more fun than the actual game, so it is important to let them rock out hard with some great speakers. All of the items on this list are built tough to withstand the harsh elements outdoor parties are often subjected to, as well as getting knocked over by drunken merrymakers. We've made sure to include models of various sizes and capabilities for any budget. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work.

Editor's Notes

January 25, 2019:

When selection the best tailgating speakers we strived to find the best balance of a lot of different features. While sound quality always takes center stage when choosing speakers, we also felt it was important to consider things like durability, battery life, portability, and the ability to withstand constant exposure to the elements.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
