ran into a small problem with my bimini not being able to be opened and put down in place with the new speakers now there and in the way..ive ran over every scenario of trying to move the bimini or speakers left to right and cant make it work without cutting and redoing the bimini or buying a new custom one..

so the easiest solution is moving the speaker to above the tower but not sure how they would look as well as would they be to high and hit bridges or low lights etc...

anybody have pics of their speakers above the tower and how did that work out..


any suggestions??

My speakers interfere with my bimini as well. I just undo one of the sides of the bimini when opening it. I unfold the front portion of the bimini past the speakers and then place the bimini back into place. Not a big problem. Better than cutting down the height of my bimini.

I am 6'4" and I put the speakers on top of the bar because I wanted the head room. I had a few looks, but no problems.

I had to put mine above as well because of head room. I am not that tall but the tower is not that high so I put them up to save my head. Here is a pic not the best one but the only one I have of the boat with the speakers on it.

I haven't had any problems with the low bridges in my area, even at high tide.

Has anyone had an issue with the rope catching on the speakers or mounts? I am setting up a new pair of cans on my boat, but I assumed they had to hang down to avoid rope snags.

Speakers should not be a problem above or below the tower, wakeboard racks are much more likely to grab a rope in a pickup turns.

I'm with Monster, racks catch the rope, speakers dont.
