Just wanted to show everyone considering tower speakers or upgrading from car tower speakers what the Wet Sounds look like on a Illusion Tower.
I was one of the first speaker box Companys back in 1999. ( the days of the aluminum box with car 6X9,s) All I have to say is Tower speakers have come a long way and Wet Sounds is out there in the front leading the way.
Don't make fun of my reg. #, new ones are on order.

I'm making the switch as well :-). Gotta get rid of my fusions first. How's the sound at your platform?

I'll be using a line driver w/ a volume control as per Tim's recommendations, so that I can adjust the volume of the tower speakers seperately.

I had issues running my (4) Pro 80's thru my eq (Clarion 5500). The Pro 80's sounded alot better (warmer and not as bright, and louder) w/o the eq. With the eq I have to turn the high and mid high almost all the way down to reproduce a "similar" sound as w/o. It's strange but unless I run them thru my eq I get quite a bit of engine noise, I would think the opposite woudl hold true. But at the end of the day they still sound great though.

and yes the volume on the eq is turned almost all the way up.

adam... i noticed the pro 80's were a tad on the bright side.. it seems if a 3-6 db off the top would not be a bad thing (they are too bright for people in the boat imo)

I love these threads that constantly re-appear - but every time they do I feel very confident in saying that I have been SUPER happy with my wetsounds!

Get some speakersox covers for them as well! I heart mine!

clubmyke, that's one of the reasons I still run them thru the eq/linedriver. I've heard rumors of wetsounds ading some sort of atenuation circuit on them (3db). As of now I don't think there is any attenuation on them???? I'm still waiting to hear the (2) pro 80's with a single 485. I just really like the look of 4 cans on a tower. Upload

I heard they sound awesome how much for a set?
Old    Jim (massattitude)      Join Date: Mar 2003       07-14-2006, 11:20 AM Reply   
I'm running a JL 300x2 to the pro 80.
another 300x4 to the JLs in the boat.
500x1 to a 10 W-7.
Sounds clean.
Won't make your ears bleed though.

IMO 150 RMS is not enough for a single PRO 80. I run approx 200 RMS to each of mine. I've run close to 400 RMS to each pod as a test.....they held up fine and freakin screamed, but the amp shut down (protection...I had it bridged in 2ohms.) Anyone running 250-300 RMS to each one?

Adam-Im running 150x2 thru a JL Slash amp as well to a set of 80's and honestly have the gain way down. These things go louder then I want to ever take them with just the measly 150w. I have no doubt they can handle much more but my ears ring at the end of the day as it is.

I'm running a bridged 4 channel rockford fosgate 450.4 which produces 225rms to each pro 80. I'm pretty happy but I have nothing inwhich to compare.
