What kind of tower speakers would be the preferred choice? If I add the factory tower speakers from Moomba does anyone know how good they sound?

Factory tower speakers suck, I think they still put kenwood coax in them. For the same money you could get way better...

The 08's come with all kicker throught the boat and the tower. It is still pretty pricey though.

Even the kicker will not sound to good on the tower. They just can't handle enough power..

What amp would be recommended of I canceled the tower speakers and went with the wetsounds 3 some? Would the prewired tower wiring be good enough?

My 06 I whent with the 4 -Polk 6X9's and 1 -4 channel 800w amp for the 6x9's, got some connectors just like the factory for my harness, used 8 wires 14 awg wire, It rocks great with the factory speakers in the boat <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/513274.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/513275.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/513276.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/513277.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/513278.jpg" alt="Upload">

Ken, <BR> <BR>Where did you get that quick connect?

05mobiuslsv 10-22-2007 12:47 PM

Get a neutrix connector if you're doing tower speakers. They are weatherproof and waterproof. Best place I've found is partsexpress.com.

kenteck 10-22-2007 1:05 PM

Deutsch connectors from Ladd, the best in the industry, <BR><a href="http://www.laddinc.com/search_submit.aspx?partnum=dt04-08pa&amp;type=contains" target="_blank">http://www.laddinc.com/search_submit.aspx?partnum=dt04-08pa&amp;type=contains</a>

trentj6930 10-22-2007 1:13 PM

Ken, those are the connectors that Moomba is already using aren't they?

kenteck 10-22-2007 1:29 PM

Ladd does supply Skiers choice with the connectors, If you notice you see these things are everywhere from cars to trucks, Its a nice factory look, also it matches the other side that came with the boat<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>(Message edited by kenteck on October 22, 2007)

Neutrik connectors look better and are more durable, but both will do the same job.

trentj6930 10-22-2007 3:00 PM

Is there anyone out there that has kicker speakers on their towers? I think you could get them on the Supra's last year?

trentj6930 10-22-2007 5:45 PM

Still looking for a few ideas!

Nubu, the Duestch connectors are alot mroe durable and weatherproff than the neutrix connectors. Leave the neutrix outside for a few months and the terminals will rust.
