right now i have a '02 xstar with a pair of b530's already hooked up. i just bought a set of B60's and was wondering the best way to run more wire through the tower. <BR> <BR>this is gonna be hard to explain, but i will try. this is what i was thinking i might do..... <BR> <BR>1. make the existing hole on the top of the tower (where the wire comes out) a little bit bigger so that i could run another wire through the same hole. <BR>2. take some new speaker wire (with a very long string attached to it) and tie it to the end of the existing speaker wire (unhook it from the B530's). <BR>3. pull the existing wire from the bottom of the tower until the new wire gets through the bottom also . <BR>4. at that point, tie the two wire together at the same ends (the string is currently running all the way through the tower) and pull both wires back to the top. <BR> <BR>think that will work? also, has anyone taken the tower of of a '02 mastercraft and actually seen how the wire runs into the hull? will there be room to run more wire? <BR> <BR>or there was another post showing how somebody hooked the tower speakers up to each other. will that work? here is the post? http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/3183/50176.html <BR> <BR>any opinions or other helpful hints would be great <BR> <BR>(Message edited by mossy44 on March 31, 2003)

Very carefully. JK. Hit me up sometime and maybe I can help you. It is really just a patience thing. I ended paying someone for mine.

...or you could remove the existing wire, drill the holes bigger as needed, put masking tape over any openings, feed a string in one of the top openings, and use a shop vac to suck the string through the bottom opening. Then you can pull both wires through at the same time.

Steve's right. It sounds dumb, but it works great.

what actually works better than string is dental floss. Just tie a little piece of plastic (from a grocery bag) to one end. This acts like a parachute and helps the dental floss travel through the tower better. Once you have it fed through, tie a piece of string to the dental floss and feed it through, then attach the string the speaker wire. <BR> <BR>String works ok but it has to be really light. It took me about a 1/2 hour to try and feed some twine through and it just wouldn't work. Used dental floss and it took about 1 second.

yeah that sounds good, we didnt have any wires so we fed a stiffer wire up the tower leg and fished it out the top with a pair of long nose pliers. At the bottom we had to drill a bigger hole through the base plate and hull for every thing to fit <BR>

I used kite string. It took about 15 seconds and it was through.
