    Monsoon 450 Horsepower

    I always thought the numbers on the modern version of engines were indicative of torque and not HP. There's a quite lengthy thread about this (and I'm sure this one is also about to get dogpiled on.) https://www.themalibucrew.com/index.php?/forums/topic/59426-2016-indmar-raptormonsoon-engine-hp-torque-ratings-with-answer-from-malibu-factory-rep /

    Monsoon 450 Horsepower

    Think the 450 moniker on the 6.2 is a misprint, isn't it? That motor is marketed as the M6DI and is the Malibu in-house engine. The 410 and 450 are the PCM motors.

    M235 and towing with 2019 Raptor

    2019 LSV 23, full fuel, double axle trailer. 7,200 lbs was the loaded trailer weight. Truck was weighed empty on a different day at a different scale, both CAT branded. It's pushing the limits of what your Raptor is rated to tow, but more importantly, the 760 lbs of tongue weight would already be pushing your limits of payload. Each time this was weighed with just me as a passenger and no gear in the truck. Throw in a cooler, a second adult, a couple kids and you'll be over your payload limit quickly for sure. I can only imagine an M235 is heavier than my boat. These dual axle Malibu trailers clock in around 1,700 lbs or so.
  6. I don't know why, but this has been incredibly elusive and misinformed. I bought a 2019 23 LSV with the 450 Monsoon 6.0L. Dealer claimed 450 horsepower, then one dude claimed 450 displacement. I've come to realize the 450 means nothing except a general guide to the model showing it's comparable to a Raptor 440, slightly more powerful than a Monsoon 410 and that the number is basically meaningless. I couldn't believe it, but in the end the answer was right on my purchase agreement. The engine is listed as: Engine: Monsoon 450 6.0L HO CAT, 374 HP So there you have it, a $6,667 upgrade for only a 374 HP motor. If I had ordered this boat and got to pick my options, I definitely wouldn't have spent that extra money on such a small upgrade. For reference, other engine horsepower ratings on other purchase agreements I was sent while shopping include... 24MXZ Engine: Monsoon 6.2L 450 HO, 398 HP A24 Engine: Monsoon 410 6.0L CAT, 363 HP So if any of you know, why the hell are there different displacement Monsoon 450s? Malibu is doing a crap job differentiating their engine lineup and informing customers of the differences of the upgraded engines.

    Looking for a good 2 channel amp

    Oh I didn't realize that there was another Arc amp with those specs... but I don't keep up as closely as I used to. Have they come out with another option that will do 400 @ 4 / 600 @ 2 x two channels?

    suction wake maker advice for '05 23 lsv

    I've got a 2005 21LSV with plumbed in rear, center, and front ballast with reversible pumps and DIY surf gates (WakeLogic). Pretty nice wave If you have a center ski locker there is room in there for a 650 lb bag and @300 up front under the seats. Total capacity is about 3000 lbs of ballast but I never use that much. Actually some lead/shot in the front if we're doing a lot of surfing. If you haven't changed your prop yet consider that first. I have a 1235. Everyone has an opinion on props. The WakeLogic system works pretty much like stock. Key is to get your gates built right. Bottom line, my 2005 has close to or equal 2015 surfing capabilities.

    Yes, that amp does 400W x 2 at 4 ohm and 600W x 2 at 2 ohm. I did not want to assume any amp he was going with as he did not initially state it was a 2 chnl he went with, just 400 x 2. Could have been a 4 chnl, or that 400W x 2 could have been at 2 ohm, Thus my question.

    LiquidForce bought them and they are now $400+ Haven't seen this one but it looks good and the price is right! I've had great luck with the Nauticurl. Looks like it's gone but a bit in price but the new one also floats. I've got the same setup as you (although I have 1100s in the back even though I know they don't fill all the way.) I weight 50% on non-surf side and 100% on surf side. I do have the front and mid MLS tanks (which I run full) in my 2004 as well.

    He said he COULD add a second pair (incorrectly saying “bridged” When he meant parallel) and get 600w x 2. That’s true right? Two pair or a ks600.2 = 600w x 2 @ 2 ohms?

    Board Talk

    I appreciate the post and would like to jump in on it - I am in a similar situation where I have a Phase 5 hammerhead for my skim. Love it. It is stable but still can spin quick. I am now looking for a surf style - I bought a 58" Phase 5 Swell but at 210lbs - it was too big and was like riding a raft. Anyone have suggestions on a good surf style board? I like Phase 5 but am not tied to them. I see they now have a 55" swell...suggestions?
  13. I bought a 2002 Malibu Response LX last summer, it came with an Eagle trailer but it's in pretty rough shape. I am looking for a replacement trailer that is in good shape, preferably black. I live in the Madison, WI area but am willing to travel. I have also been contemplating refurbishing the current one, would require welding, sandblasting, and painting (I could do everything else - electrical, brakes, bunks, tires, accessories, etc.), so not sure if anyone knows of a shop or someone in the area they would recommend for the work? I have done some research and looked at new trailers, sounds like I'd be looking at around $5K which is more than I am looking to spend. Thanks in advance!

    suction wake maker advice for '05 23 lsv

    I’ve had really good luck with Wakesurf Edge Mega Wave Shapers. both on my 247, a friends 23 LSV and my brother’s 2006 Nautique. these things have insanely powerful suction cups. They have never once come off by accident. set up takes a bit of time for each new boat to identify the optimum spot for the device. You get good wakes right away but with a little experimentation you can make great wakes. Some boats like it a little more forward than others or a slight downward angle. Took us abou my an hour per boat to know exactly how to place the gate on both sides to get the cleanest, longest, biggest wake possible. i like this design as it’s a ramp not a brake. It floats without anything on it. And bases on my experience with my surfgates on my 247... having a larger gate made a huge difference in wake shale and quality. Everybody will have their preferences but I would definitely recommend you look at the Wakesurf Edge Line.

    13.5 inch JL W7 SubWoofer Grille?

    I’d try contacting JL directly. They might need the serial number off the sub.

    Um, no! I simply asked at what impedance was this "400 x 2" amp the OP was getting to power his SINGLE pair of speakers. Then he started talking about bridging and you started talking about parallel.

    2019 Axis A20 stereo upgrades

    You can definitely order the auto set wedge with or without surf pipe. That was an option on axis even before power wedge 2 or 3 were available.
  19. Hi all - I recently purchased a 2012 -21-v-ride. It has the JL W7 anniversary edition subwoofer under the dash area. I'm a bit concerned that it does not have a grill/protection cover, I've searched through the net however can't find anything on a cover or grill, any suggestions? Many thanks!

    are you confusing series and parallel?

    2019 Axis A20 stereo upgrades

    I didn’t think surf pipe came separate with out power wedge, they are a combined option for ‘19 luv my a20’but have you actually seen your surfpipe , or was this FAE added to your auto set wedge

    I’ve used Flipsurf. The best part about it is that it collapses to the size of a small pizza box. If you are interested shoot me a pm. We have an 08 lsv

    You can waste a ton of time making one, or a bunch of money buying the newest trendy suction gate, or just buy this because it is cheap and it works: https://www.shapethewake.com/products/wakemate
