Thanks,
The only thing you can really see is that everybody in the boat kind of glows blue when you're pretty close to the boat... otherwise the reflection is lost in the darkness... The Nav lights still are the main thing you can see as far as lighting goes.

I have been approached about my blue tower speaker lights on one occasion however... which is why i put them on a spearate switch initially... I told him i'd be happy to turn them off. after a brief tounge lashing and quoting the rule book about blue lights above the "rubrail"... he complimented the setup and said he thought it was smart to have as many lights on as possible to make yourself visible as long as it didn't disrupt others visibility on the water.

I agree with wakeX2wake. I was docking my boat on Lake Lanier, GA. The sheriif was waiting for Jet Ski guy since he had 9-10 years old kid on tube at 9:30pm (on top of that NO STERN LIGHT). He was like what is this Blue underwater and around your speaker in the boat. I said it's called Bling Bling LOL.. My wife was staring at me and thinking that I'm looking for trouble. He told me that he has no issue as long as DNR doesn't care. plus, he mentioned that he's seeing so many on Lake Lanier lately and looks really cool.

Sorry to bump up this old thread.
But trying to do the leds in the speaker. Wich size of hex key do you juse for the speakers? Tried metric size and english sizes. But didn't find one that fitted :s.

Did you need to make a hole in the speaker to run the wire?

I totally used the OP's idea and ran with it. He may have pics of his install

The JL doesn't have hex screws. Has 2 Phillips holding on the grill. If you have coax then you must unwire the connection at the xover and let the grill pull out the wire when you separate. The wire stays with the grill basically.

If you have components then you just take the 2 Phillips out on back side of the grill and separate.

Note that you must drill holes on the opposite side as the mounting holes. This means you drill through the speaker case right and left of every mounting hole.

Zoom in on my above install and you will see the 3 holes per mounting area. This is to run the led wire through the speaker.

I will also say that lighting up the inside is a pita. Rings are much faster and easier. I have both. If you are a impatient person and rush things then lighting up the insides will be very stressful to you. It takes a lot of steady hands drilling through the speaker and lots of tedious work gluing the led on and routing all of the wires.

I will take the time to do the inside, looks cleaner in my opinion.
But I will take youre way less drilling and we have the coax
What do you mean with xover? And the phillips screw isn't that to take the speaker out and not to take the grill of?

You've lost me. Read my thread that is linked above my pictures in last post. In that thread it has a lot of how to.

Take the 6 screws out that mount the speaker to the boat.

Turn the speaker on its face so the magnet is up. 2 Phillips screws are on the rubber outer ring that secure the grill to the speaker.

If you have components the grill will come off now. If you have coax the the tweeter is built into the grill. Look at my pics in my thread. The tweeter power wires are snaked through the outer speaker through the back casing and into the factory crossover. You must disconnect and pull the tweeter wires from the crossover. Then once you get the wires pulled out from the speaker case you can slide the grill off and the wires will pull through the speaker.

You must drill 10 holes per speaker. Idk what you mean about less drilling?

I think we both mean different screws.
I searched for a picture.
This are the screws I referred and are hex by our boat.
