I know a bunch of you are running the Boss tower speakers out there and I am currently looking at some. Do they not have a quick release bracket? I read on an older post someone got their's stolen from their boat? If not what are you guys doing to protect your investment. Also has Anyone heard the B-69's? What do you think of them.. Personally I have never heard any of the boss speakers.

...No quick release brackets, I store the boat in my shop so she is safe. (I Hope)

Cans were odered empty through a buddy that has a stereo shop

Ken, ryno-gear is making a quick release bracket for the Boss speakers - and speakers too.

http://www.ryno-gear.com/

The quick release brackets might not be listed on the website yet, if not just drop ryan an email: ryan@ryno-gear.com

The Boss speakers ROCK! I have the B-60's, if you get them I would line the inside with Dynamat or some kind of insulation, they will sound 10 times better. You will need a separate amp to power them.

Like Bill said check with http://www.ryno-gear.com/ he is coming out with a quick release bracket for the Boss speakers.

...Yo Gramps, good call, I forgot to add that all my cans are lined with Dyna-Mat before I loaded the speakers. Make sure ya all do that, even if ya order with stock speakers - it will make a big differance.

ROCK ON

What amp are you pusing the B-60's with and can you hear them at 70' clearly? I'm getting ready to buy either the B-69's or B-530's and need to justify the extra $400-500 for the 530's if I think I might have problems hearing the B-69's at 70' clearly.

Ken,

With the right amp you should be able to hear one pair of B60's at 70 feet easily. You don't need two sets of speakers on your tower if all you want to do is hear the music. You only need two sets if you want to spend a lot of money and make sure everyone on the lake hears you.

We were running a pair of my new speakers a few weeks ago and we could hear it clearly at 300ft. The real key is dynamat in the canisters and a decent amp. You can see some pics at http://www.ryno-gear.com/testpics/

Email me at ryan@ryno-gear.com with any questions, including how much cheaper they are than what you are currently going to spend and they come with the dynamat and the quick-release brackets that Boss doesn't even make. If you do end up going with Boss, email me anyways because I have a bracket that will make your Boss speakers quick-release so they don't get stolen.

I'm a little late on this but maybe someone could give me some advice. My 98 prostar has factory 6x9 Kenwood marine speakers. I want to upgrade but I can't decide which way to go. I think that I would rather upgrade in the boat and stay away from the tower right now (cost reasons!) Here's what I've been thinking about.

Replace the 6x9 Kenwoods with a non marine speaker. Will this be o.k as long as I don't get them soaked? Someone mentioned Memphis Audio because they have a pretty good warranty. I would like to get a sub as well. What are suggestions on the 6x9's as well as a amp that would be adequate. Remember, I'm a poor state employee that doesn't want to spend a mint. HELP

Okay, so what is this dynamat? I just ordered some B-60's and I'm wondering what else I need. I need a 9-pin Boss wiring harness, correct? Thanks for any help.

Blake,

Dynamat is an acoustical dampener. It basically absorbs any vibrations that would normally affect the quality of the sound your speakers are putting out, so that they sound better. You can read more about it http://www.dynamat.com

As far as what else you need, you don't NEED the Boss 9-pin wiring harness, that just makes it a little more convenient to wire up your speakers for A LOT of extra money. You only need one set of speaker wire to run from each speaker down to your amp.

Hope that helps.

Ryan,

Thanks for the help. I'm still a bit confused on to what it actually is? Is it easy to install/apply?

Blake,

Dynamat is peel and stick, both the original and the extreme.

You can read up on all of it at http://www.dynamat.com
