My wiring to my tower is a pain. I had hard wired everything when i found my aunt/uncle had a barn to store the boat with tower on every winter. A few years and all was good. Now they sold the place and i have to remove the tower to get it in my garage. So looking for a plug solution that is decent.
Came across these: SZJELEN SP13 2pin/3pin/4pin/5pin/6pin/7pin/ 9pin Aviation Cable Connector,IP67 Waterproof Plug Socket,LED Light Equipment Connector (2pin, Pair-Plug(Male)&Socket(Female)) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DGVWQDR/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_I9fhEbKM7QXEZ
Hope the amazon link works how i posted it.
Thoughts? Need two speakers and a light so 6 pin variant of the plug.

The reviews seem like they might be of questionable quality.

I think the professional installs use Neutrik type/brand connectors. I know they're robust and well regarded. Also have a lot of options, eg, female coupling with mounting flange to mount to hull... just like you see on pro installs.

These are Mil spec IP67 connectors, should be weatherproof and high quality. There are many other types, but Deutsch connectors are the same type Yamaha uses on the boat.

Deutsch connectors and perhaps TE also have an option for a flange mount which may be more better depending on a few factors. I am assuming with 6 wires one pair is for a light and the other two are for speakers. In this case I recommend separate connectors for the lights and speakers especially if the lights are led. I also recommend running separate shielded wire packs for both if running up the same leg of the tower. This will reduce the chances you get EMI noise in your speakers or that your speakers cause your led lights to flicker.
