How do you like the speakers? What kind of power are you running through them? I thought about going with the 6 x 9's but didn't want to mess with cutting new openings.

I purchased both the Polk MMC650 and the MMC690 6x9's
with two Polk MM2084 Sub's. I have the 650's and the 690's on a RockfordFosgate 425.4channel amp. The subs I have on a RockfordFosgate 325.2channel amp. They sound great !

I mounted the 6.5 and had to cut my panels...took a bit of patience and ultimately I place them on small panel mad out of starboard and then placed the starboard on top of my cutout. Made the mounting much easier for me. As for the 6x9's I was going to place them on the side panels next to the rear bench but didn't want to go thru the hassel of cuting my panels again so instead I built two small boxes that house both the 6x9 and my sub seperately in each one and placed them under the rear bench.

Mount them by the speakers to the side of the hull....Use two part epoxy to mount them on the inside of hull.....they won't ever move

Carpet snake?! Never heard of that.

Just mount the crossover to the wood with sheet metal screws that have a socket head and as close to the speaker hole so you can reach in there.

Carpet snake, carpet fish, fish tape......all the same thing. I run all my wires through the original factory wiring tube using it. They work great. I got mine at Menards. Here's a link to what they look like. http://search.harborfreight.com/cpis...tape&Submit=Go

They sound perfect...I built two small boxes, each box has a divider inside to keep the sub and the 6x9 apart. The MM2084 is an 8 inch sub and only needs I think like .35 cubic ft interior volume for the box. So it's very compact but sounds real nice...I'm still breaking them in so I haven't really cranked them all the way but so far they sound awesome.
