3-10" JL subs under the seat and 3 sets of 6.5 JL highs, no complaints so far after the first month, never had it overheat or shutdown. Amps are really good, sound is better than anything else ive heard around here. My only real negative is I am really picky sound wise and would have loved to do sealed enclosures on the subs, just didnt have the room to waste. Not that they sound bad, really good for free air but I prefer the sound of a sealed enclosure. Also went with the 6.5 over the 770's because I acutally liked the sound a touch better, may just be my personal preference as well.

Nice.

I'm doing 2 pairs of 7.7s, 2 pairs of 6x9s, and 2 10 inch subs, all JL. For amps I'm using JL MHD 600/4, MHD 750/1 and M400/4.

I wanted to do 3 10inch subs, by my guy said it would be difficult to wire amp-wise abd wouldn't match up with the channels. Not sure if that is true, I see a lot of boats with 3 subs.

It is easy. Just wire them up with a fake 4 ohm load (resistor) and wire both pair in parrallel and two in then those in series and you wind up with a 4 ohm load.

You guys need to check out Wet Sounds. I'll put them up to any JL or Focal amp, any day.

Thanks for the input guys. The stereo in question is going in this boat. We have a new deck for it and a pair of 6 1/2"s & 4"s that have already been installed. You can see the old 10"s in the dash pic

For a center console, you may want to consider some DC Gold speakers. 100% waterproof and a 3 year warranty. They sound excellent as well. They make 10" speakers, but they are not actually a sub.

I just installed a JL 1000.1 , and a JL 6 channel model m6450 , I have 2 sets of component 7.7s and 1 set of 6.5 JL coaxes in the cockpit . Was planning on doing some type of free airs in the cockpit as well , but ended up throwing a box with 3 JL w3 12s on the cabin bed.It sounds so good I haven't taken it out yet.. . I am 38 and haven't had a decent stereo since i was 22. Everyone that steps on-board remarks on how clear and loud it is....... I'm sure there is better out there but with this set up I am amazed!!!

Call me the odd man out here, but I've always trusted Zapco. The amp most amps wished they were.
I've used them in my boats, and have overseen dozens of completions in jets with them.
I had Jon's approval of this choice years ago, and would imagine I still do......
