-   -   Lowest Profile Good Sounding Tower Speaker? (http://www.wakeworld.com/forum/showthread.php?t=775711)

This will probably start a war, but what good sounding tower speaker out there has the lowest profile when mounted on the tower? I have a 2008 SAN 210 with the titan tower and it sits kind of low. And no, I don't want to mount them above the tower as I'm not a big fan of that look. Also, when I say good sounding, I mean I want them to be clear riding at 80'+...I'm not so concerned about the sound inside the boat. <BR> <BR>I've heard of NVS, Wetsounds and Exile. Which of these have the lowest profile? Are there any other brands out there you would recommend? Thanks a lot!

I think one of the NVS versions is a 10" speaker with like an 8" footprint or something. Where the housing literally wraps around the tower mounting point. I think its the Modus and Prodigy.

The New Kicker KM6500.2 are a 4-can setup that will fit most enclosures that accept a 6.5 speaker. <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.kicker.com/km65002" target="_blank">http://www.kicker.com/km65002</a> <BR> <BR>I'm hoping they will be shipping in the next few weeks.

You can always mount them on top of the tower.

JKW - no, this thread shouldn't start a war. Your asking for pretty straight forward information. On the Titan tower, you'd use our universal clamp and the total hang height is just under 9 inches and you can spin the speakers (literally)in 360 degrees and have a 100% pass through audio connection - no flying wires of any kind. <BR> <BR>For guys that can go with our direct fit clamp, it chops the hang height down to 7.1 inches. Just to be clear, that would not work on your tower setup. <BR> <BR>Have a good weekend, <BR> <BR>-Brian <BR> Exile Audio

Here is what M-Dizzle was talking about. 8.6" hang from a true 10" speaker. <BR> <BR> <a href="http://www.nvs1.net/prodigy.html" target="_blank">http://www.nvs1.net/prodigy.html</a> <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.nvs1.net/modus.html" target="_blank">http://www.nvs1.net/modus.html</a> <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.nvs1.net/deviant.html" target="_blank">http://www.nvs1.net/deviant.html</a>

JKW, <BR> <BR>If minimum hang height is your primary goal, the Bullet HollowPoint 770 HLCD has a maximum hang height of only 8 3/4". And, you'll get a 7.7-inch midbass driver which means good midbass, in this low profile package. Typcially the hang height of 6 1/2-inch HLCDs is around 9 1/2" with a universal collar on a 1 7/8" thick tower. <BR> <BR>The NVS is truely a shallow mount too. <BR> <BR>Keep in mind that the power requirements of a 10" NVS is going to be completely different than those of a smaller driver. So, don't select a speaker without considering this also. The midbass on a Prodigy will crack you like a whip (and that's a good thing) but they want 500 watts a side to reach their potential. Just make an informed decision. <BR> <BR>David <BR>Earmark Marine

might want to look into the 6x9s that wetsounds are coming out with in April?
