Nylas Basket and Grille: Both the speaker frame and grille are made of Nylas, a composite mix of Nylon and Fiberglass, providing strength and stability. The grilles are held in place by three screws, accessible under the mounting gasket, but the tweeter is mounted to the grille, so it should not be removed.
Rubber Spider: Durability is further improved by the rubber spider Wet Sounds developed for their marine speakers.
Tweeters: The tweeters are mounted to the grilles, rather than to a pole piece, thus there is no chance of water leaking through the woofer cone.
LEDs: There are red, green, and blue LEDs in the back of the tweeter casing to create a glow on the woofer cone. The LEDs can be powered individually, or in any combination you like. A 12 volt power supply is needed to turn the LEDs on and a 2-amp fuse should be added in-line (fuse not included). Depending on what combination of LED wires is connected, they light red, green, blue, yellow, purple, aquamarine, or white. The LEDs can also be controlled using Wet Sounds' wireless RGB Music Controller remote (item number 867RFRGBMC, sold separately). A male 4-pin waterproof SuperSeal plug is on the wire connected to the LED housing, which connects to the included female SuperSeal harnesses. (The black wire is +12 volts, the red, green and blue wires are ground.)
Speaker Terminals: Similar to the LED wiring, a male 2-pin waterproof SuperSeal plug is on the signal input wire, which connects to the included female SuperSeal harnesses. The red wire is positive and the black wire is negative.
