View Full Version : Tower Speaker/Light Wiring
06-04-2010, 10:53 AM
I'm curious how most transition the speak wires from the hull (gunwale?) to the tower without making it look like Sanford & Son did the install? :-)
Anyone got any professional tricks (pictures would be great).
I have to lay my tower down on my 02 Launch SSV to get it in the storage building.
I'm really looking for some good looking installation pictures so I can duplicate it for my Wet Sound 3Some tower speakers I'm going to order soon.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Here is what we did. In retrospect I would not use the quick connector again. There is not really any reason to imho. It also gets corroded and it not that high-quality of a product (yes it is Neutron or whatever brand). I would just run the wires through the hull with plenty of slack. Then use grommets on the holes and conduit-style over the wires which I did too.

Ours is a connector similar to 87's. (Installed prior to us buying the boat so not sure what connector it is).
However, it is mounted on the side which I think would prevent water from sitting in it and corroding.
You can see it in the added pic. (black coil on left of the pic by the tower mount.
The one for the anchor light on the top of the tower runs the same way but on the starboard side.
To drop the tower, it doesn't need to be unplugged as it just folds into the bow with enough slack. (drill the hole into the tower on the bottom again so water doesn't get in the hole and sit).

Do what Mikey did. You'll need 3 sets of wires ran for the 3-some, so you'll need a connector with 6 pins.
