I have a system being installed as we speak. It will consist of the following:

3 sets of 6x9
2 10" subs
2 1000watt amps
Clarion Head Unit am/fm/cd
XM Satelite Radio

Should be awsome. Thanks to Main Street Stereo on Long Island this summer is going to be rockin......

Big, there is way more crap in here than I could list, but it will drown out most bad bands at the bars.

Has anyone listened to the new JL Audio marine speakers? I was wondering how they sounded.

I have a Sony head unit with Alpine marine speakers and Im putting in two 1200w Audiobahns with a 1200w amp. It was loud in my Navigator it should sound pretty good in the boat I hope.

2 12" TREO TSX Subs/sealed boxes under driver & passenger seats
2 Optima yellow tops/ need two more and beefed up alternators since sub amp is slowly draining a battery.

Gets the job done for me. 2001 Eliminator Daytona 28

Picture is before I added the subs under seats, but the Diamond Audio's are all clearly visible.
I also went with component systems (small woofs, good tweets) and subs. Works great.... no big honking speakers anywhere.

I would never put a huge stereo in a boat, the water, the pounding, the weather, they just don't hold up. A good stereo is too expensive to be disposable. I go with the simple $150 Clarion CD 4 channel, still sounds great.
