Get the lighting look you want

You can access twenty color options as well as 19 dynamic modes using the optional Kicker KMLC remote. The KMLC gives you multi-function control of the LED lighting by managing color and dynamic mode functions, including adjustable brightness, fade, speed/strobe, and auto save. Whether you're on fresh water or salt, these speakers will give you years of audio and visual enjoyment.

Point your sound where you want it

These rugged 8" wakeboard tower speakers are tough enough for marine duty, but they're very easy on the ears. The durable poly woofers and balanced dome titanium tweeters cut through wind, waves, and engine roar to deliver big-time sound without annoying harshness. The swiveling clamp system is easy to install and lets you rotate the speakers to suit your situation, Point them aft for waterskiiing or wakeboarding, or spin them in to enjoy your music when you're anchored out. Whatever you're doing, these Kickers will make your day on the water just a little bit better than it was already.

Built for boating and built to last

Designed for life on the water, these powerful 4-ohm speakers feature sealed motors, rubber cone surrounds, and locking terminal covers to keep spray away from the internal componentry. They'll also stand up to harsh sunlight, thanks to special UV treatments on the cones, surrounds, baskets, and grilles. The durable stainless steel/ABS clamps will fit tubing from 1-1/2" to 3-1/4", so these speakers will work on a wide variety of vessels.

Features

Overview: The Kicker KMTC8 wake tower speakers provide great looks and next-level sound quality for your boat. These 4 ohm, 2-way speaker pods include a 8" polypropylene woofer with a santoprene surround and a 1" titanium dome tweeter, all housed in a UV-resistant polymer enclosure that meets or exceeds ASTM standards for UV and salt/fog exposure. These include a 200 hour salt/fog test and a 400 hour accelerated UV test. The KMTC8 speakers can handle 150 watts of RMS power and 300 watts Peak power.

LEDs: The 2 included speaker grills have a built-in 7 color LED lighting system on the back of them that will light up the speaker cone when activated. Each speaker pod includes a 6" pigtail of 6 pre-attached wires. The Black wire gets +12 volts while the Red, Green, and Blue wires are used to activate that color of LED when a ground is applied, giving you a total of 7 choices of colors. The 2 remaining wires from the speaker are the signal wires; Transparent Blue for positive and Transparent Gray for negative. The optional Kicker KMLC Lighting Remote Control (sold separately) can provide up to 20 colors and 19 lighting modes.

Mounting: The KMTC8 kit includes all the hardware necessary for mounting the speakers to your wake tower. Each speaker uses a stainless steel/ABS clamp that can mount to tubing ranging from 1.5" to 3.25" in diameter. The clamps feature a tool-free locking cam/toggle system that allow the speakers to quickly and easily be swiveled up to 359˚, while their "through-clamp" design allows all wiring from the speaker to be routed through an internal conduit, for a cleaner looking installation.

Q
Can you buy just the mounts?

A
The Kicker 45KMTC8 speakers come with the mounting clamps included Michael, and we do not sell them separately sadly. If you need a replacement set, I advise reaching out to Kicker directly to see if they can source them. If you need a whole new pair, we can certainly help!

Q
Can I mount these on a flat surface? I have a fiberglass radar arch/tower.

A
No, mounts are for tube framed tower.
richard  Apr 20, 2021
A
If you only use the bottom half of the clamp and don't mind the space it will work because you need the clamp to attach speaker

Q
Can the wires be routed externally thru the clamps (not thru the rail?). If yes, is a wire seal grommet provided for that?
dave i.  Jun 29, 2023
1 answer
A
The wires are not intended to be externally routed. No hardware is provided for this purpose.
zachary  Jun 30, 2023 (Staff)
Q
Can these be wired externally to the clamp (not thru the rail)?
dave i.  Jun 29, 2023
1 answer
A
Greetings David, and thank you for your question. The Kicker clamps have a predrilled hole to pull the speaker, and lighting wires thru so they would be un-seen after the install. You would need to cut a 5/8ths inch hole in the mounting bar to do this. Install directions are below. https://pdf.crutchfieldonline.com/ImageBank/v20180629134600/Manuals/206/206KMTC65.PDF

Can these be mounted sideways instead of up and down. How sturdy would they be?
kurt  May 19, 2022

A
Absolutely! That's how I have mine mounted on my TTop on a Wellcraft 182. Saves room for my outriggers.
