Well finished the newest project yesterday. Neighbors tower speaker canisters. I have to take them to get Powder coated today. Nice tucked up and out of the way. They are about 6' 2" from the floor of the boat. After they are coated then I have to line the inside with sound deadning material. He will run four 5 1/4" Focals in them.

Nice work on the canisters. But, what’s up with powder coating?? I expected polished aluminum!
So will you be adding something like that to your product mix on your web site?
Can we take a vote on color… more purple?

Jeff Polishing is not an option. I don't think canisters will be an item. Even though I am making about 6 sets right now. They are all for friends of mine.

Craig it was 27 degrees out when I took that picture. It was 3 degrees this morning. Brrr.

How come you don't paint them? Look alot like mine. I will post pics tommorrow. We prime with etching primer - shoot any color base coat - then 3 coats clear. Looks like the shine on your car. Add a decal or two and shoot another clear to seal. You shoot bedliner material inside? or what other material?
Mine are finished and sound great - can't even hear the four speakers in the boat anymore.

P.S. How much?

Scott I painted my set on the Phat-Boy. I opted not to paint these because i'm not footen the bill. It was easier for me to take it to the powder coater and let them deal with it. I line the inside with V-Max from http://www.cascadeaudio.com/
I currently only make them for friends of mine.


Grant that is not my boat. You really should have known. Our Pro-V will have B-60's B-530's and B-50's. That should make you happy.

Scott it looks like the flange is out of 1/4" A little over kill don't you think?

Its 3/8" plate - speakers need to resinate. Most home speakers are built with 1" wood for the mounts. I use something different for sound deadening.
Dane - thanks and I know its not the prettiest tower - its strong as h*ll and built to go around the winter top that hooks to the windsheild.
see next post.

Scott, I was referring to the cans and tower on the barney boat. I would say the same for your speaker cans and not knock your tower.

Phaeton,those are sweet if you decide to make them you could make a killing I would think

Phaeton, could you make them for 6.5" speakers?

BTW, does anyone know if 4 6.5" speakers are better than 4 5.25" speakers for sending sound to the rider? (the cockpit is surely getting enough sound either way).

Dane I can make the tubes any diameter. All I have to do it roll them like I did on the Phat-Boy.

However on the Barney boat I opted to purchase 6" irrigation pipe. You can also get it in 7".

The best way is to find what speakers you want to run and then build the canisters to match.

For them the 5 1/4" will be fine. It depends on who you are and what you can tolerate.

Jeff like I said before I am not interested in making canisters for a living. There are a number of company's out there that do that. For the time that is involved and what I would need to sell them for the profit margin is not there. I am just helping out some friends of mine.

Travis,
I second that and would like to add. They are custom made to fit the tower they are designed for. What I saw of yours and what I know is in mine can't be made to compete against store bought. I personally think that they add more to boat,sound every bit as good if not better. Custom costs unless you can build them yourself or have a great friend like you.

Phaeton I understand.I think the way you angled those look alot better then some of the high end units.Very nice custom look.
