|Hi we just got a new boat and i installed my subs which included 2 10 W6v2's on a Orion 1200d. the only location to put them was under the passenger seats but when the seats are closed the sound is not loud at all. |
i am thinking of just using one of the w6's and putting it in a box under the bow filler cushion firing down the walk through into the cockpit area.
even though it is only 1 10 would it be louder than the 2 10's that are very muffled in the storage area?
When i would lift the passenger seat up i could feel a big change in the sound quality and loudness and i knew i wasn't getting the performance from the w6's i exspected so i want to do something different that will atleast give good sound quality.
|William get with Andrew, he just got done putting a (1) 12 kicker L7 in his storage area, that thing soudns awesome, and they have the gain turned way down.|
What kind of watts ( RMS ) are going to that speaker?
I have a 10" with 240 watts and the gain is up all the way.
|Mike, it's a friends boat, I'll email him to post on how many watts but I think he's using a memphis audio amp (class d) pushing 500x1 RMS, btu like I said the gain is nto up to far. I was very impressed with the sound. |
|You'll have to ask dustin on the stereo specs. I dont know em. |
I was going to put the speaker under the helm facing the driver but the spotters storage compartment worked out very well and looks awesome. I am gettng a custom grill made too and Ill post it when it is done.
|hey andrew the stereo looks awesome. |
my subs were facing the hull unlike yours which are facing the under side of the passenger seat. Maybe that is why i didn't get the performance i wanted.
but instead i made a new box for just 1 w6 and it fits underneath the bow filler cushion and fires toward the main seating area.
until i find a location for the 2nd sub i am just going to keep the 1 sub in the boat.
|Wiliam, regardles of postion of that w6 you should get some really good sound out of it. Here's a few pics of my 10w6. Mine is behind the false wall and fires up. |
|adam i got really good sound out of it but i just knew that it could be better. When i lifted the passenger seat up you could immediately feel a differnce in the sound quality and loudness. i was happy with the sound but knowing i can get more sound out of them i wanted to try something different. |
I made thee box that goes under the bow filler cushion and fits in there very nicely and i am going to make another box that will go under the passenger seat and fire like Andrews Kicker.
|William - |
I have made (or dustin has) some other mods that you may be interested in too. A light above the rear cup holders and a light in the main storage area (near sub). I am trying to post pics as we get stuff done at my wakeside site.
I am also having a custom grill made for the sub, but I bet it isn't ready for two or three weeks.
You'll have to post some more pics of yours....
|adam, what's that gray box left bottom corner?|
|yeah Andrew i did led lights on top of the cup holders as well|
|Bruce, it's a cd changer, it came with the boat. I was going to remove it but if I try and play cd's in the cd player they will skip b/c of the sub.|
