Yeah I had thought about that but after feeling the 1 inch pvc I didn't think it would be strong enough to hold both speakers. I thought about using some pipe, but because I don't use my boat all that much and I am a college student I didn't feel like I was up to the task of drilling out a pipe and I didn't know how it would look. I might try that later on down the road though so I can make it the pipe smaller. Thanks for the input though. I'm not for sure if there is another post about some one doing this or not so hopefully we can all discuss ideas for a ski pylon and speakers. I am open to any suggestions.
