If those are the same 2 pieces that you've reworked; WOW! Seriously can't tell they are even the same! I can't wait for my new skylon to show up so I can start fresh and do something like yours.

So I got my end caps today, but the speaker almost falls completely inside it. Should I glue the speaker in or get a piece of 6" to slide inside it and screw to that?

The Infinity speaker grills I used were the same diameter as the caps and had a mounting flange inside the grill. So, all I have to do is glue the grills to the caps. You could also glue a piece of 6" pipe inside and mount to that as you mentioned. Are your grills going to fit OK?

The grills hold the speaker up a little further than without a grill, I think I'm going to glue a piece of 6" inside the cap and screw to it. If my speaker set 1/16" taller the grill would fit fine. But with the speaker in the cap with no grill the grill cannot go on the speaker without pulling the speaker back out

Found a scrap piece of 6" I think, so that should solve mounting problems..

Made some progress on mounting the caps to the "cross fitting"

Tph, you did use a 3" cross right? Want to make sure before I start glassing.. My skylon isn't here yet, should be tomorrow though

Make some spacers and throw 4 up top.


If they can fit a JL 7.7 then I'd be willing to trade you a cup holder

Keep it going.


I would carbon dip that set up for sure. Look extra pimp

Carbon fiber dip would be sweet!! But it'd be the best looking thing On the boat!

Kyle did you see my question in your cup holder thread?

Yes, I used a long sweep double Sani Tee fixture for 3" abs pipe. It fits very nicely over my "Ten Foot Pole" extended pylon. I'm not sure what the diameter of a Skylon system is. It's probably the same. I used the long sweep instead of a standard cross so that I could cut the hubs off and still have a reasonable distance between the speakers. Great progress. Thanks for keeping us updated.
