Have you tried Texas MasterCraft since they're close. Perhaps they know of someone who has gone from factory to WetSounds for instance and may still have these pods.
With a dealer locator maybe you can email a few others.

I just bought some off ebay without lights or speakers, for my 2006. From Rambo Marine in Hazel Green AL. Took me a lot of looking to find them. I even asked David from Earmark.

If you are looking to buy new ones you could always try MC by design.

If I could ever get back to the US I will probably be putting mine up for sale I think..

If you want factory cans, it may take time, but they will come. I wanted OEM cans, and it took me about 4-5 months until I found them at the price I wanted, here in Market Place. I was also continually checking ebay as well. It was worth the wait for me. Once I got mine it seemed like 3 or 4 sets showed up the next month!

Good luck.

Generally speaking 600 per pair has been the going used rate I've seen online.

If you find 05-06 cans, they will fit on the newer towers with adapters. Not sure if they'll hang at the exact same height or not if combining with 07-up cans.
I sold a pair of the adapters to MCVOLS for his boat and for some reason they did not work in his application. He may still have them. I have another pair somewhere as well.
Maybe MCVOLS will chime in as to the issue with the adapters.

Yeah, keep an eye out. I scored 2 pair of 05-06 speakers/cans for a screamin deal last year, but they had only been posted for a few hrs and the guy had several calls already. They still command a good price as I had no trouble selling the extra two that I had.

Excuse my ignorance, but what is the difference between the 05,06 cans to the 07?

Do they use smaller speakers or is it simply how they mount? I've been looking for sets for an 07' as well but have the added problem of having to get them shipped to Australia.

I contacted someone on the market here but unfortunately no reply from them as of yet.

If anyone here decides to upgrade their speakers and want to sell their JL's please don't hesitate to contact me. I may want up to 3 pairs.

The enclosures are the same size. The 2005 & 2006 speakers mounted directly to the towers. The enclosures have a groove in the top that lets them mount flush to the tower tubing. The speakers are attached with allen bolts that drop down inside the tower tubing through a hole drilled through the top of the tower.

Hmmm, I wonder how hard it would be to modify them for the 07' mounting system.

Cheers for that.

Pretty sure that MastercraftByDesign makes adapters to do just that.

Good stuff, I'll have a look at that. There is a HUGE price difference between the 05', 06' cans and the 07's.

You're on the right path, the '05-'06 cans look exactly like the '07 and up cans except for at the mount, as mentioned above. I did get adaptors from Thrall to allow '05'-'06 cans to connect to my '08 tower, unfortunatley (or fortunatley), the cans I got were '07-'10 cans. I simply ordered new mounting hardware from MBD, and recently sold the adaptors. MBD may have them.

Contact Craig Davis at 972-263-6633, I was at his store last week and he had a set of the Black M/C cans, with the new grills
