Speaker Sox

Recommended Posts

Just wondering everyone's thoughts on Speaker Sox.  For those that have them, worth it?

I have them...used them over the winter mainly.  They faded pretty quickly.  However, speakers looked great when I took them off in the spring.

I've had several pairs on different boats, they keep the rain out and the bugs off your tower speakers. Not super heavy duty like the wetsound covers. If you keep your boat inside like I do, there fine. If you keep it outside, I would get something a little more bullit proof. Incidentally, I bought their extra tough model this time. They seem the same as the base model.

I've had them shipped to Australia on both Malibus - very happy but they fade rediculously fast if you have them out in the sun.  I should have ponied up for the UV protection they offer - would have solved the problem ?

Dang, didn't see UV protection as an option.  I paid for the waterproofing, but didn't see UV.  Rat farts.

Worth every penny. Less time cleaning bugs off the speakers = more time on the water

Keep the speakers clean and bugs away.  Mine faded a bit, but I rotate them to keep it even.

Don't forget the TMC discount!

 

I ordered mine in gray thinking they would not fade as much and they match the cover.   I received them in 2 days. Excellent customer service! Got some for the racks too

I like gray idea.  I was thinking black but I think you are onto something with matching them to the cover.  Never thought about the racks?

have had them for years, on 2nd set.  They are really faded, but like others have said, keep the bugs off.  That said, I freshened up my cans with some plastidip, knocking the chrome down a bit, and now will only use them for transport behind the vehicle.

When they fade buy a $5 can of black vinyl spray paint, cheap way to freshen them up and it will hold up for a season.  They really need to start making them out of sunbrella material, they would hold up so much better.

The racks are mainly to keep spiders off while in my slip and then bug protection for the times I do tow,. Same as the speakers really, since my lift is covered and sun exposure is minimized by that.
