Good morning.

I am in the market of purchasing two tower cans that would match my current cans on my 2008 X-15. I have attached a picture below. I have decided that I want to undertake the project of adding 2 more speakers to my tower and I want all the spears to look identical.

Is anyone selling or know of a place where I can by 2 cans that are the same as my current cans (w/the tweeter and front-ward facing lights)?

I appreciate any help.

Those look like the same cans that are sold on the MasterCraftByDesign.com site. Of course be prepared to shell out $1,500 for them.

GEEZ! And that is NOT including the speaker? I am hoping someone has some used ones for sale that are in good condition before I shell out that sort of $ for cans w/out speakers!

Thanks for the post, however.

Those speaker covers are off an '07, are they not? I have an '08, and mine are different than yours. I can't post up pics of them right now, but did the cans change as well?

Just as an FYI, you could check with the guys at MBD (1-888-460-6186) and see if them have any blem cans available. The blems are usually not noticable, and it would save you some dough.

I agree. I have an 08 x-15 and i have differnt speaker covers. Mine are the 5 spoke or 6, not the mesh grill type.

Interesting about what MC X-15 and scott023 say! I am not sure if they came with the boat or not as I bought it used from the dealership!

Thanks for the advice scott023, I may give that # a call and see what they can do for me

I know I have an 08 because of the LCD dash with the down arrows, etc. I don't think they started making those until 2008?

Yeah, keep looking. They pop up from time to time on here or craigslist, ebay. Usually people that are putting in an even higher dollar setup.
They aren't cheap. I was lucky to score a great pkg deal on 4 of them (only needed 2) and sold the 2 I didn't need for more than the price of all 4!
If you can find them for $500 or less a piece with good working speakers, that's a deal.
Retail on a complete speaker/can/light is over $1000 I believe.
Talk to the guy a couple threads up. He's thinking about swapping out speakers on his 08 X14 for some Wetsounds.

Thanks for the info. I believe you're talking about ScottS. I just sent him a PM, actually. I got a PM from a guy who is willing to sell me a pair for $1900 (speakers and lights included). That just seems like so much money. I am not in a HUGE rush so I guess I may just wait around to see if something pops up.........

I am going to call texas MC today, actually. Maybe that have some list I can get on. You have a good looking boat as well! My plan is to buy 2 more tower speakers, and replace current amp with a 4 ch amp for just the 4 tower speakers. I already have a 6 ch bridged running the 4 interior speakers and a mono block running subs

For 1900 you could buy a pro 485 + a syn 1 to power it, and have money left over. Remove your old speakers and sell them. You missing out on a whole world without HLCD

Are the Pro 80's a big improvement over the Stock JL speakers? You could get four Pro 80's for $2k, you would lose the lights on the front but possibly gain superior sound? I don't know but that is what I have though about doing.

$1900 is a rip off. I got $1100 for a pair I sold incl shippng and thought I made out.

I am going to BUMP this.

I am still looking for a pair of speakers and cans (w/lights) to match the pair that I already have. I have a 2008 X-15

Has anyone seen any around or know of anyone looking to sell??

Thank you!

I have a pair for sale but they came off an 06. I think the mount is different. Not sure if they would work for you.
