    Yea, send or post a pic!

    Thanks!

    Heres a pic of how I did mine. You can not see it unless you are right on top of it looking for it. It is hid behind the leg of the tower, from the side you can not see it at all.

    That's pretty well hidden. Very subtle.

    I just ran my wires lst night - what a PITA! The left side was a cake walk, but the right took about 2 hours! The existing wires made it very difficult to feed out the bottom. I didn't have any string, otherwise I would have done the string & vacuum trick. I'll post pics in a few.

    Ian im concerned you ran the speaker line to the left and right. Why not run both lines down one side? You should only have 1 pair of wires, if your running 4 speakers then you wire them together to drop the ohm down and get more power to the amp.

    Im also concerned as now you have to run the line around the bow, or threw the ski locker of the boat. You speaker wires on any high power system should be the same length so the signal is the same per speaker. Other wise you can actually have a speaker louder then another as its getting a stronger signal.

    On a side note i was going to post pictures of the install i just did at Exile with a OB style tower but it seems the boat went home with the owner before Pics were taken...Brian....Brian... LOL
