Default t-t-tinkering

real nice temps right now, right on time, in the building for getting a few things done.

backseat base isn't tall enough for 10's so I'm doing four 8"s.
Actually it's the floor rise in the middle over the tank/senders that made me go this route.

Those 6.5" Infinity two-ways are now crossed-over at 100 Hz.

All the wiring is done just waiting for the subs.

a third wired remote added to compliment the one at the helm and the one on the transom.

I'm always wanting access when I'm chillin' in the back seat.

Done.

bad pic but this remote control for the sub amp that controls amount of bass-boost and at what Hz will be in that same vicinity.

That's what the "telephone cord" looking wire is to the left in the third pic.

amps...

still have to do some finish work tidying up wiring.

check out the old/new plastic thru-hull that worked perfectly to trim and grommet the hole I drilled for the sub amp wiring.

I noticed the block-off panel was loose when I was vaccuuming out the starboard gunnel storage.
It's looser now!

Removed in favor of another 2'+ of storage. It'a carpeted all the way to the bulkhead and there are just a couple voids at the bottom that I stuffed with leftover mega-LDL fun-pad foam (for Peter ) to keep anything from getting lost.

relocated the primary shorepower breaker to the backseat as the only other purpose of that panel was a location for that breaker.

While I was in those gunnels I tightened every locking nut and screw I could reach as well as added additional adel clamps and tie wraps to all that's up there on both sides.

once the subs arrive I'll install them before I put the panel back in the boat. Then route all the wiring under the top edge above the speakers with lotsa custom little clamps. There will also be a couple extra screws along the bottom.

....of course I'll be taking a toothbrush to all the crevises and doing a rediculous detail everywhere on everything, and then the whole interior before launch day.

I need to loom the wiring at the amps and put the cover back on the sub amp after I make some adjustments.

Install the tweets (cake)
put the CD changer back in (5 mins)

I have the door off that side and I will take a holesaw to it and add flat, slotted, stainless 7x3" vents at the top and bottom of the door before I put it back on to facilitate air movement in that compartment. I've used them before on these plastic doors.

the whole stereo thing is a combo of Kenwood stuff the boat came with...
additional Kenwood remotes I've installed...
Infinity speakers that I put in the boat two years ago to replace the stock 6x9"s and added the 6.5"s at that time to the backseat.
Infinitys have excellent smoooth natural sound with great range, aim-able tweeters, 93 db efficiency, heavy magnets, poly cones and santoprene rubber surrounds...
the little add-on tweeters I have had 3 new pair in stock bought 'em on a closeout a couple years ago...
the Kenwood 7252 I bought to put in the truck a year and a half ago and never did...
I bought '07 Kicker Comp subs 'cause I got a helluva deal on them. They are pretty basic, but for the money if I want to upgrade I can throw them away...
They are rated 200/100 so I got the 8 ohm models and will parallel 2 on each channel for a 4 ohm load. RMS is 170 x 2 @ 4 ohms. It's about all those little Kickers can handle. Plus at 4 instead of 2 ohms the amp will run cooler and draw less...not a bad thing.

If I want to bump up later the 7252 makes 250 RMS x 2 @ 2ohms, 500 bridged.


This hodge-podge isn't gonna knock any fish unconcious, but having piece-mealed like this before in previous boats...
I bet it's gonna sound pretty good for rock!
