    Take a piece of paper and wrap it around the point where you want the clamp to go. Mark where it touches itself and then flatten it back out and measure (for circumference), then divide by 3.14. That gives you the diameter or clamp size. (Don't forget to convert the decimal to a fraction.)

    well the problem with that is that's I’m in Iraq and the boat is in Tx in my mom's garage and there's no way my mom would be able to do that for me, or would I ask her too even try... she would be like "now wtf you want me to do again...???" hahaha

    What are you trying to add to your tower? I have an 02 LSV and have added a light bar and speakers, check my signature links for the tower speaker install. The 1 5/8 sounds correct, I will check for you when I get home. I had to use the rubber spacers with all of the tower clamps I used.

    Well, crap. If I was a little closer I'd go over there and measure it for you. Keep your head down.

    JesseC, your tower looks the same as mine! btw I like your install with your wires in the tower, nice! So you think its 1 5/8 but you said you had to use rubber spacers with all you tower clamps??

    I’m trying to add a light bar and 2 speakers... maybe 4 speakers I’m not sure yet... how does yours sound with just the two 6 /12 Polk’s up there?

    kaneboats, thanks! lol Iraqi elections this weekend, defiantly keeping my head down!!! lol

    For me the two tower speakers were plenty, I can hear the music at 80' just fine. Is it the loudest boat on the lake....no. It just depends on what you are looking for. I was looking for something that blended in with the boat so I went with the white fiberglass to match the deck of the boat and knew I wanted a light bar and only had enough room for the two of them, but you know what they say "Bigger is better"!! Add four if you would like to, it would not hurt!! I walked downstairs and confirmed that the tower is 1 5/8" with a set of micrometers. Here are a few pis of my custom light bar I built and the pics of the spacers. When I ordered the clamps the come with rubber inserts that you use to fit them to your tower. Here is the link to crutchfield where I got mine. I would assume that your light bar and speakers will come with the clamps, but you can look at these to get the idea.

    Here are a few pics of mine to further illistrate:
