I'd personally want at least a 1/2 ton for that boat or a big 1/2 ton based SUV.
I had the acme 1235 on my 15 LSV. I changed to the OJ 945 (15x13) last year. Loved it. Then I tried the OJ 948 (15x14) even better. I run about 800 feet msl. With the higher elevation the 945 may work well for you. The diameter difference between the Acme 1235 and the OJ 945 is 1/2 inch. That means it’s only 1/4 inch closer to the hull.

Should you really have to do this? If new options become available before your spray date shouldn't Malibu and/or your dealer notify you?
Well I agree.. they should. But sadly that’s a risk I wasn’t willing to take. In my case it was busy boat show season and I know they were pretty swamped with orders, deliveries and test rides so i don’t really blame them for not calling me every time a new option/color showed up in the order form. I think it is going to come down to the dealer and your relationship with them. Some people might be offended if the dealer calls up after you placed and order for a boat and said “hey, there is a new motor avail for $7k, want me to add that to your order?”... some people might think it’s an upscale tactic vs. and honest question trying to make sure you get the best boat possible.
You mentioned the GC... a GC with the air suspension would be great (they tow very well.) I have a GC and Durango.. both were awesome pulling my 2008 23LSV. For the 2019 we only use the Durango (high tow rating.) There are also a bunch of German SUVs you could pick up used that tow 7700, Touareg, Q7, X5, Cayenne, etc. Not cheap to drive/maintain but if you can get one with some mile on it to get the price down along with a warranty then you would be set.
In process of doing audio on axis a22.. Building custom box under dash for L7 12" q series, mounting 4 kicker kmtc8ls on tower, and replacing the 6.5 alpines with 4 kicker 45km84l.. I got a wet sounds rf music controller for a decent price, and figured use this to run the led on speakers.. Question is where is best place to mount it? I was thinking of putting it on the amp rack I'm making and piggy backing the subwoofer rcas and run the 3.5 straight to the controller.. My head unit has a dedicated lp sub out, so by doing this would it then work only with the bass? Would mounting in the ob compartment be OK? Any ideas would be great. It says to avoid high spl so figured should keep it away from the sub..
