I have a 88 prostar and got one of these: http://www.aerialwakeboarding.com/v/vspfiles/wakeboard-towers/aerial-wakeboarding-airborne-pa.asp

Can you show me how you wired the speakers, what's the trick in getting them through the poles. And how did you get into the hull? Thanks. Pics would be awesome.

your going to have to drill the tower pipe and fish the wires through and go around the welds, and you will drill the top deck to get the wires into the hull, just remember you need slack at the pivot point or make an electrical quick disconnect at the hull point...

I'm looking how you got it into the hull.

Drilled a hole in the boat right below the plug we installed, which is right below the hole in the tower..

Insert some twine in one hole and then use a shop vac to pull the twine to the other hole. Then you can use the twine to pull the speaker wire thru the tower.

When using the shop vac, tie a piece of plastic grocery bag to the string, the vac will suck it up quite well. The larger the piece the better it works, as long as its not to big.

You should be able to drill up through the tower backing plate and base to get the wires up into the tower leg. Drill a hole in the side of the tower leg at any "dead end" tower disconnects or pivot points and then back into the tower to run up to the top to the speakers.
Use some wire loom on continuous exposed areas like at a pivot point and Deutsch connectors at disconnect points.
If you're running 4 speakers and can't fit 4 pr of wire, if you have an amp that is 2 ohm stable and rated to push all the speakers, you can run 2 pr of wire to the tower an parallel the wires to 4 speakers up top in the speakers (4ohm speakers).
