    Default WTB: Thru-hull Wire Connector 6 pin or more

    I need a connector to get my light & speaker wires from the tower into the hull. It currently has a 2 pin connector, but I have at least 6 wires I need to get thru.

    I'm open to suggestions on where to buy it from too. Thanks for any help, Ryan

    (Although I prefer the 90-degree version that holds up tight to the hull.

    That doesn't look too waterproof? Never any problems with it?
    Any cheaper options out there y'all like?

    The Neutrik connectors have been used in prosound forever and is as solid of a connector as you will find.
    If you want something more streamlined with considerably less bulk then look at the Deutsch connectors. They also have chassis mount versions and pins for up to 12-gauge.
    But if you want heavy gauge for high current, like halogens for example, in more than four poles you may have to run connectors down both sides.

    David, good point on the Deutsch connectors. I used these for my ballast mod in old boat and they worked great, even with my limited soldering skills. I believe you can buy thm pre assembled as well.
    I believe razz or newty turned me on to this site. Quick and easy to work with.

    Never a problem with water. Only problem I had was a 1am arrival at home and forgetting to disconnect it before attempting to lower the tower and park the boat. That's when I went from the straight connector to the 90.

    Thanks Joe. That's what I was looking for. That's what is on my boat now. I'm going to look into these this weekend.

    Berg, I'm realizing the price on what you sent isn't too bad afterall... Still in mind. thanks for the feedback!
