Safe & Sane upgrade - install


Recommended Posts

I finally got time to get started on my install. It's been awhile, so I started easy:

Then I had to fab some brackets for the bow speakers:

And then the amp:

This weekend is finishing up the sub box (fiberglass, carpet, wire & mount), final wiring & all the details of putting the boat back together, then tune the amp. Getting close.....

Here are a few pics of my sub box prior to fiberglass:

Had to work around the heater, the hull & the permanent foot rest. P.I.T.A., but hopefully it will be worth it. I should finish the sub and the install this weekend. Very anxious to hear it.....

Exile 12" dvc is going in the box. Internal volume is 1.06 cubic feet as best I can determine. I'll put some stuffing in there & see what happens.

Didn't get as far as I wanted this weekend, but that's ok. Chased a few gremlins (thanks Brian for the poolside help on a Sunday no lees). Back at the sub today.

Well, due to some unforseen issues I had to hold off on wrapping up the install. However, I did temporarily hook up the sub and listen for a while. Wow. This Exile stuff is bad a**. Clear for as loud as my son (20) & I could stand it in the garage. Can't wait to hear it when it is buttoned up & on the water. Even got my wife to smile because her Miranda Lambert sounded awesome.....

Finally finished up the sub. I think I'm going to like this. Still have a few issues/gremlins to chase but all in all it's going to be pretty cool.
