I saw these speakers on the Axis site, and I thought they were a great idea. The clamping portion is made into the can so they sit 3 inches higher than they would if hung from a standard clamp. Being tall, this is awesome, of course the Axis tower is so tall, I don't think it is an issue. I do wish my speakers were higher.

That's pretty clever. Better hope they are the right size. Wonder how they sound?

I think they are by MTX, but they are not shown on their website. I think they may be done specifically for Axis.

I thought the word "Axis" was banned from this forum.

According to a local boat dealer, the speakers are not very good. The design is still clever, though.

I wouldn't say they "are not very good". Actually better than what most boat manufacturers offer as stock tower speakers and can be heard a little at wakeboarding distance...although they are bright to the people inside the boat due to no zone controlling EQ. The tower on the boat mentioned above :p is not taller than my previous XLV because even with the incorporated clamp design into the speaker housing...I'm only an inch away from hitting my head on the speakers and I'm only 6'00". When I install the Bullet 770's I will definitely be hitting my head on those. The XLV tower is plenty tall even with large HLCD speakers mounted.
