Old    Is it summer yet? (trentj6930)      Join Date: Oct 2007       10-22-2007, 11:34 AM Reply   
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

You can buy them on ebay, I paid 300.00 on ebay for a black one and painted it to match the boat and put the rest together.
like this one:

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

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

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

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

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

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.
