21 MLX Sub Modification

Recommended Posts

TexasTurner

If you saw my previous post, I said that I was going to have Scream Marine move my sub that was mounted on the wall into a ported box behind the wall. I was having a problem with the wall mounted sub rattling everything around it, including the dash. With this modification the rattling is completely gone! Scream Marines solution is to replace the wall with this nice fiberglass LED backlit cutout. It is hooked directly up to the shadow caster LED controller which is controlled by the stock screen. I have all the same options such as solid, pulse, music, etc. It looks and sounds exponentially better! Not the best picture but it's a screenshot from a video. Hope it gives y'all some ideas.

Looks phenomenal!  The sub on my 21vlx drove me crazy with how much it rattled.  I’m sure it sounds better too.

I’m interested in hearing more about the LED controller.  How did you get that to hook up to and be controlled by the factory screen?  Do you have a write up on that project you can share?

Unfortunately I do not. I bought it from the same place (Scream Marine) and had him install it. I have been told by multiple people that the wire from the black box that controls the Shadow Caster is very difficult to locate and honestly I didn't even look. The Shadow Caster box is the box you will need though if you want to keep with the factory parts.

No worries, that Mod is lower on the priority list for me anyways.  I might even have a different boat by then 😳
