8" subs


Recommended Posts

Morning folks,

tossing around the idea of installing two (2) 8" subs in the gunnel? (side pockets on a response) as the one I have below the drives feet is too loud for me but the rest of the boat is fine (yes I know, old man comment). is this even possible?

If you have a subwoofer that is too dominant, that's a good problem to have, because you can easily resolve it with the amplifier input gain control. Also, you should look into the subwoofer crossover setting to make sure that it isn't running fullrange or lowpass at too high of a frequency. For the most musical system, in the ideal scenario, the subwoofer is making a great contribution but you are not able to localize the source. So you may have some work to do with the existing subwoofer, but adding a couple of 8" subs to the gunnels is definitely not a valid solution.
