Anyone try mounting the tower speakers on the side of the tower to increase headroom under the tower on Axis T22?

Why not go Mickey Mouse and mount them above the tower rather than under?  Side of tower is going to interfere with board storage.

I have an older Bu with an XS tower...and the speakers mound on the side.  I'm tall so I appreciate not banging my head on tower speakers.  :-)  

For your boat, do you have one pair or two pair of speakers?  Do you have one pair of board racks?  I think if you have 1 pair of speakers and racks, this would be pretty easy to do.  The tube form on the leading edge of the axis tower seems to be consistent all the way around the tower from the pics I have seen.  And the board racks have two mounting locations so if you only have one pair of racks, use the lower mount point and that should keep everything clear of the relocated speakers.  The hardest part would be fishing the wire and drilling the tower, assuming you want to keep the speaker wire hidden for a factory look.  I assume the tube mount of the speaker can has some swivel/adjustment to keep them at the angle you want.  You might need to add a spacer or modify the angle between the can and the tower to get them to aim where you want them.  Good luck!
