I'll start off by introducing myself. I'm Paul and I'm president of the Wakeboard Club over at the University of West Florida and we just got 08 X-1.

We are looking to order some speakers for our X-1. I would like some that mounted in the mounts that are already on the tower. I was wondering how I go about doing that. All the speakers I've seen seem to clamp on instead of using the mounts.

Appreciate the advice in advance.

As far as I know your either going MasterCraft factory cans, or Wetsounds Pro-80/60's with the MasterCraft adapter. PM me if your interested in Wetsounds.

Another question is. Will I be better off going with cans? Or if I get speakers not in cans will they work good? Anyone have any not in cans they like/will recommend?

You have several options.

You can get cans and stick in whatever speaker you want (make sure you get the correct cans!). I added some JLs in third party cans versus buying the MC speakers as it was less expensive for the same sound.

Contact Tom at LiquidAudioSounds. He helped me.

Forgot to mention that I mounted mine using the MC mounts not clamps. It does look cleaner.

i also have a 08-X1
JL cans (http://marine.jlaudio.com/products_enclosuers.php?prod_id=450) with JL MC tower (http://marine.jlaudio.com/products_enclosures_pages.php?page_id=78) mounts. i love mine and like how i have never seen them on another boat. plus they sound absolutely awesome, not cheap but definitely worth it:guitar::headbang::woohoo:

Pierce07,

The following aftermarket products will direct mount without collars:

1.) WetSounds per a specific MC model.

2.) Exile with an available MC adapter.

3.) Bullet HollowPoint without any extra parts or specialized model.

4.) JL Audio with an available MC adapter.

We carry all the above.

Just put a pair of Exile XM7's on my 02 X Star and love them. Give Exile a call.

Just got my xm7's and put them onto a test bench. The sound is incredible. The mounting that comes with the speakers is for clamping and that can be removed to mount onto the casting.
