Wetsounds xs-65 in stock 2003 x-2 tower cans
So my buddy us having trouble with putting the xs65 coaxial speakers in his stock tower speaker cans. The boat is a 2002 x2. They work fine but when we put them in the can they ground and cut out. We tried taping the posts on the speaker but that isn't working. Any other ideas that we can try in order to make the speakers stop grounding. I was thinking about buying a thin rubber sheet and lining the inside of the can with it then putting the speakers in. Any help is much appreciated and I hope someone has come up with a solution for this!

I would get out a machinist flat file or power Dremmel to place a concealed flat indentation in the pod mounting plate to provide space for the terminals and braided leads to clear.

When i put them in mine i notched out the cans as David mentioned, plus i bent down the terminals flat, used insulated connectors, and put a few layers of electrical tape on the inside of the can. Never had an issue.
