Is there a web site or previous post that explains the installation in a step by step process?

Yes, and the best way to feed the wire down the tower.

I bought a tower wiring harness from bulletlines.com (http://www.bulletlines.com/servlet/the-14/Wakeboard-Boat-Tower-Speaker/Detail) and drilled 2 holes in the tower ran it up one of the front tower legs with a long piece of metal wire nd I wired up 3 lights and 2 speakers with it . . . If you want I'll post some pics of the install

Use a fish tape, drill some holes in your tower and get lucky hitting the hole.

I drilled the holes then used fishing line and a nut tied to the end of the line. Next I used the magnet on the back of my sub to drag it through the tower. It only took about 3 min.

Another way is to drill the two holes & push a piece of sting in the top hole, then suck it out the lower hole with a shop vac. No luck involved at all.

the magnet idea is pretty neat

The shop vac sounds pretty nice and easy too. I've also heard you can use some string and compressed air and just blow it through then fish out the string at the bottom.

The shop vac really works, by far the easiest way to get the fishing line through and then pull the wire.

The string/shop vac trick usually works unless there is a lot of oil inside your tower. I ended using a fish tape and worked great.

coat hangers work well too and are usually easy to get.

take a piece of string and put some tape on the end so the shop vac will have something easier to suck thru.

If you use any other method you are just making things hard on yourself.
