speaker can adapters
 
Can you buy adapters so you can fit other brand speaker cans to the mounting points on a mastercraft tower, or do you have to use mastercraft speaker cans.
thanks

I know Exile sells a mount for their speakers so you can bolt them right to the 07+ towers.

A Bullet HollowPoint 770NEO 7.7" HLCD will mount right up to the 07 & up tower pads with the existing flange and no need for an adapter. These are in really nice domestic spun aluminum pods.
Exile has an adapter that will facilitate their own speakers which includes a 6.5" surf coaxial, 6.5" HLCD and an 8" HLCD.
Wetsounds has an adapter that will facilitate their own speakers which includes an 8" surf coaxial, 8" HLCD and 10" HLCD.
Either the Exile or Wetsounds will provide a swivel mount that quick-disconnects.
There's seven speaker choices.

swivel slarification
 
David, just to clarify from the above posts, Exile and Wetsounds both have MC mounts that swivel and quick connect, but JL and Bullet have MC mounts that do NOT swivel or disconnect. Am I correct?

Also, Bullet says something about being able to angle the driver within the can. How is that accomplished? I can't image there'd be anything more than a few degrees tilt. Or maybe I misunderstand.

A Bullet HollowPoint will allow the pod angle to adjust to any angle in the context of a fixed mount. This is very helpful if the speakers are mounted to the vertical portion of the tower or you want to fan out the speakers in a horizontal array. This really doesn't apply to an '07 & up MC tower if using the existing mointing pads.
A Bullet HollowPoint allows the speaker to rotate in its own pod mounting to adjust for any tower arc so that all speaker grill patterns correspond to ground level.
