I have two pairs of stock JL tower speakers and cans from a 2006 Mastercraft X-Star in good to very good conditions that I'm considering selling. I'm trying to get a feel for what these things are worth. I know dealers charge an arm and a leg for just one new pair of these! I think I'm going to start with a price of $1400 + shipping for the four of them. You can reach me via email at nickpetterson AT u.boisestate DOT edu

I forgot to mentions, these DO NOT have the lights built in.

In just this short time I've had this posted, I've already had a bunch of interest. Can any non-biased person tell me what these are worth?

The price is the price. If you think they are worth $700 a pair then that's the price. When the dealer wants $1400 a pair who's to say what they are worth.

If it's with the JL's in the cans (depending on condition) anywhere from $500 - $700 is very fair.

I bought a new pair without speakers or lights for a 2006 yr for $500.00

might be a silly question but can the 06 cans go on an 07 tower ? If so, i would be interested in a pair.

There is an adaptor that can be used to mount these cans to the 07 tower. I haven't personally seen them, but have been told they look good and cost about $25 each. Let me know what you're thinking!

If the dealer really wants $1400 a pair this is a good price. Look at ebay under closed auctions also.

Just tying to find you a buyer. Tex has 02 or 03 197. Towers are prolly different. But I'm not up to speed on towers and cans.

I have read numerous times that these WILL fit with an adapter. I haven't seen one first had, but from what I've read, they look great. You might check your local Mastercraft dealer for the adapter, or I've also seen a couple numbers to call from looking around on this site.

Let me know what you're thinking!

Thanks

Yes, they will fit w/ an adapter. I bought '06 speakers that were on an 08 boat and took the adapters off to fit them on my 06.
I have one pair of adapters and MCVOLS (Ithink) has the other pair I sold him and he ended up not using them.
I'm in the process of moving my houshold right now, so if anyone is interested in them, hit me up after July 10 when I'm unpacked and can find them.
Also, MC by Design sells them I believe.
IMO, $700/pair is a good middle of the road price if the drivers are in good condition. Seen them go for more when I was looking a couple years ago and have seen a few for less, but most of them were dinged up or something.
FWIW, list price is about $1k each without lights and $1300-1400 ea with lights. If I was thinking about buying new ones, I'd go with an aftermarket speaker before shelling out that much.

Thanks for chiming in! If you're looking to buy a pair of these speakers for an 07-08 tower, hit this guy ^ up for the adapters!

I also want to say, our boat only has about 400 hours on it. That might help clear up how much (or how little) use these speakers have had.

Thrall is correct, I purchased two adapters from him that would make an '06 speaker can fit an '07 and newer tower (mine was '08). I ended up not using them, as I got correct speakers and got brackets from MCbyDesign. I sold them on here a few months back.

MCbyDesign may be the best place to check for brackets.

I have decided to sell a pair of 2006 cans without lights or OEM speakers. I do also have a pair of Bullet hollow point HLCD speakers that fit inside the cans. Both items are new, just decided its too much work to install them on the tower

Shipping looks to be about $70. So $1470 shipped to 30701.

Let me know if you're interested. They're already off the tower and ready to be shipped!

Were you wanting just two speakers...? That would make sense if my price seemed double what others sell them for since the $1400 is for four speakers.

If you're still saying I'm double the price, could you show me any for sale for $350 per pair?

Thanks,

Anybody able to find the brackets referenced above on the Mastercraft By Design site? I have an opportunity to buy a pre-1997 pair (did not realize they were pre-1997 when tentatively agreed on price) for $325, but may back out now since it sounds like mounting is a bear on an 09 tower and brackets may be hard to find.

MCVOLS
08-04-2011, 08:31 AM
I would call or email MB by Design (Jim or John I think?). I could not find the bracket on the site, but they had them and sent them right out. I purchased '07 and newer brackets, so they may not stock the '06 & prior, but may be able to make a few sets.

You asked very early in the thread what they are worth...If you still have them after a couple of months, then you either have them too high or not advertised well enough. With all of the looks at this thread, I think you are too high. $350 seems too low, but the market will dictate.

I think the used stuff market is very difficult right now. I sold a $575 prop after several tries for $120. Mint condition, never reworked.

2 + years ago, I sold some speakers for the newer tower for a little less than $700 per pair. But your speakers are 5 year old speakers...who knows how long they are going to last, then you have seen people bantering about whether or not they will fit on a newer tower. Someone needs to put up a pic of the adapter and show how it fits, and then I bet you get better bites.

Good luck with the sale, from the pics so far, they look to be in terrific condition.

I appreciate your comments. I have had a lot of interest, but those who were most interested needed adapters. I would love to find pictures of the adaptors and post them here, I just have yet to find any pictures of them. I've also had several decent offers. I feel like this is a pretty reasonable price and that they'll sell with the right buyer.
