Also has anyone place a speakerbox in their cabin? I have often wondered why you dont see more of this . I understand the concept of having the mids and highs outside for the clarity , but would think the bass coming from the cabin would do well ,especially since it is bouncing off all the walls. I have a 12" Kicker solabaric in a decent box ,that i can cover in white,and think it would do great with big power . .. . Thoughts???

Here is the link of my install I told you about http://www.offshoreonly.com/forums/g...ound-pics.html The total install...cutting holes, speakers, wire, amps, everything was $2500 and it screams. The water is absolutely worthless without a killer stereo (unless your a gay guy and don;t like to have girls dancing on your boat) so make sure and not short cut it! As far as sound in the cuddy goes. I think most people just have to much junk to feel there cuddy and you want to be able to feel the bass in your seat while you are riding.

Thats what I had in the NT..Loved them...Nice tight deep base, good mids, and highs were perfect not screaching when cranked up. I even had a set made for when rafting up. I also added a remote by the swim platform.

JL does make a 6x9, just not in a marine version

The amps I have ... have been flawless. Plenty of clean power. I would buy Polk's again.

My portable sub in the cabin is nice...quite boom'y if you sit in there but when it is time to let er rip, we bring the speaker box out in the open...amazing how the boom is when you place the speaker where you want it. I also like the idea of being able to completely remove the speaker from the boat.

COol , i think that i am going to cover the box with some white vinyl , and put some big power behind it. The box is just big and cumbersome , and wont really want to move it much. I am just not ready to give up my under seat storage .
But..... how do the subs do under your seats.??? Are you building sealed enclosures under there?

Just wanted to thank everybody with their speaker knowledge! Ended up going with the Polk MM series. Steve
