    Default 2000 Mobius tower add-on's budget friendly0

    Gent's,


    The boat didn't come with tower speakers, and I'd like to install a set. I don't want to spend a grip of cash, though, cause the boat doesn't get used that much. That said, we only wake surf 99% of the time, so I'm not really looking for a tower set-up that I can hear 80ft behind the boat.

    I just want a decently loud set of tower speakers in addition to the 4 interior speakers. I am totally ignorant to this audio jarg, so bear with me.

    Could I get away with picking up two tower cans (ebay), a set of pioneer car speakers, and an amp from wal-mart or something of that nature?


    Any thoughts on these:

    I appreciate the insight, fellas.

    I'd say no, unless you're wanting to have crap in your boat that you'll have to replace later anyway when you figure out you're dissatisfied. That said, there's a couple kicker amps for sale on this forum for $100 each that would do you good for boat and tower speakers. I went the 'budget' route and got some bazooka compression horn tubbies for my tower. I wanted the compression horn technology that projects the sound out over the water more.

    i got a sweet deal on my 8" compression horn tubbies when I stole them for $160 new. But I can't find any deals like that. All I'm finding is the 6.6" ones for around $240. Then you have to get clamps.

    I'd stick with brand names (or at least mid tier brand names) when it comes to tower speakers...

    Had this setup on my Stingray before I sold it. Had 2 8" and 2 6.5". sound was decent for the price. But like trayson said, you will probably replace in a year or two.

    all four speakers we're powered through a cheap Pyle amp

    like I said, decent sound for the price, comparable to my buddies system on his Mastercraft that he paid three times as much.

    Give Brian at Exile a call. I went with just 2 of the SXT65 (have 4 now) for a season. Love them.

    I'm selling the tower speakers, tower amp and cabin amp out of my '13 Mojo. Would suit you pretty well at $500 total. Check out my thread in the moomba classifieds.

    With that said, +1 for Exile if you are willing to invest. I'm not afraid to say I want one of the best stereos on the lake... That's why I'm upgrading.
