    Default Oz tower speaker wiring

    Hello,

    How are you guys running speaker wire in your Oz towers? Upon first glance it seemed really easy, using the stock 2 holes drilled from the factory, run down the front side of the tower into the mounting bracket - but I just pulled the grommet and realized the place that is drilled does not connect to the front tower pole. Are you drilling through the front all the way through to the other side and then plugging it?

    Thanks,

    Dev

    Yes, drill through the first hole into the front tube. I used a fish tape and pushed the wires up from the bottom, and had someone watching through the hole to watch and pull them through. The trick is that the tower needs to be held up a little, just above windshield height.

    Ian,

    I was going run a separate 14ga to each speaker, were you able to pull yours all the way from the bottom up around the bend to the driver side of the boat? Are there any tricks to doing this?

    I pulled 12awg down each side, not up and over.

    Oh you've got to be kidding me.

    I just finished fishing the wire up both sides, soldered and heat shrunk the connections, and found out the Exile speaker clamp does not fit on the starboard side. WTF? Of course when I test fit, I only put the port side speaker on. I wasn't aware the tower was not identical on the sides.

    Suggestions?
