I've seen lots of different tower speakers on Ebay for sale. The ones I'm looking at are liquid audio speaker pods, they come with sonys, kickers, kenwood.. etc. Are these any good or total crap? Just looking for something simple.. thinking about getting the ones with kicker K60s in them. Let me know what you think

I have 4 of LA speaker cans with the Kicker (K60s I think) & they sound good for the money.Not as good as others, but alot cheaper.If you are interested contact Liquid Audio and ask for a discount. They did for me since I bought two pair & a lightbar at once.

I think the cans are injection molded or extruded plastic and with the clamps you need to protect the tower finish with rubber. Never heard anything bad and nobody can touch their prices.

Wakeside has some closeout Skylon speakers at under $350 and lots of companies are bringing impressive, affordable speaker bling out for 2005. Everyone's new products for 2005 will be announced in the next 90 days. If you need to move quick go for the LA or Skylon Closeouts.

Scott... what did they end up charging you for the four pods and the lights? I'm glad to hear they sound decent.. I figured I could get four speakers AND a killer amp to run it for about the same as just a killer pair of pods/speakers.

Stuart, I had a set of those speakers on my tower I bought last year. On my way home from my last river trip one fell off the tower because the plastic broke loose around the clamp. I trashed them and bought a set of aluminum cans. Much better!

They say they are liquid audio brand. Here is the link:

The can is made out of aluminum, with aluminum clamps. I don't really like the look of the clamps, but I guess they will do or I can just make some new ones. They have good feedback on Ebay as well.. seems everybody likes them. Somebody else on ebay does sell the plastic cans for the same price.. but I just don't want plastic. Thanks for the info guys, I'll probably pick some up.

One other question... does having 4 cans instead of two make a huge difference, or is it not much difference?

If you have a pair of 6-1/2's vs two pair naturally you get twice the output but certainly not twice the dB/SPL at the rider. Two pair of Kicker KB600's definately is louder that one pair and same for tower speakers. Your adding more cone surface area.

Stuey, remember too that both the amount of sound output and quality is directly tied to the amount of power you put behind them. And hanging 4 instead of 2 is going to effect how much power gets to each speaker. So if you have a quality 4-cahnnel amp that puts out some decent power, you should be in business.

Stuey -

Get 4, I have 2 polished Aluminum cans with the Pioneer 6.5" speakers. They sound good in the boat, but behind the boat it is difficult to hear them 70' back. Make sure you run enough power to the speakers in your boat and on the tower. I am planning on adding 2 more cans and another amp to run the tower seperately from the cockpit speakers. You won't be dissapponted if you put in all of the needed parts now.
