Default must be a texas thing.....

I was driving from Orange, TX to Houston today and I saw this car, what really intrigued me was the use of hailers for the rear speakers.......

Is this something new or am I just out of the loop on the latest stereo upgrades

Not sure what a "hailer" is ~ but if it's loud, gawdy and/or BIG then it's probably a "Texas thang"!

I had a set of those behind the seat of a pickup in H.S. They were on 6' coiled cable with magnetic bases, when we'd have a "pull-over-and-party-here-party" they'd be fed through the sliding back glass and stuck up on the roof. My truck was the juke box. That was waaaay before the mega-watt bass thumping boomers of today. Of course, I also had my washer fluid reservoir filled with Jack Daniels and the hose sticking out through a dash vent. Hit the washer pump and take a shot.

Drifter,
and that technology is alive and well on our 38' Tolly. separate pumps for vodka, gin and canadian. The pumps tolerate alcohol well because of the washer fluid makeup.
Yes we used NEW pumps!

yeah, ya' gotta' go with all new pumps, reserviors, and hoses for this conversion. Otherwise it's just plain dangerous! That's a great idea, I hadn't thought about applying that to anything else. My boat's not big enough to warrant such a conversion, but my motor-coach sure as heck is!

Well, I am curious about the temp tag in the window more than the oversized speakers.
