well, up until now, I was using a single JLAudio 12W3 in a sealed box, installed in the passenger seat compartment... running (1) amp bridged at 380 watts... Now, I just purchased a pair of Wolfenhag 12" competition subs, which can handle 500w rms... I have just ordered a another amp which is a 2 channel amp, 280w per channel, 650w bridged into 4 ohms, 980w into 2 ohms... I am installing the new subs under the driverside dash in the carpeted panel, which will allow the entire front of the boat to act as the enclosure. It should kick major ass. Oh, don't forget to run the proper gage wiring to your amps. I am using 4g battery cable going to the connector blocks, then 8g going to each amp. My system will now have 3 amps, 2x12" subs, 4 x 6.5" 3-way speakers all running from a Sony Xplod CD deck. Tower speakers possibly before next summer. Oh, and one new 200amp alternator to charge the dual batteries.

Thanks in advance for the photos. Do you think i'll need another battery for just one sub? I'm also adding two more speakers in the back. Can i run them off my 45x5 deck or do i need an amp?

Grant, Are the photo's of the sub's from a Toyota Epic? If so did the owner recently move to the San Diego area? I'm pretty sure I saw and heard a similar set up at San V a few weeks ago and it was thumping!

Gramp's Yes the sub's were in a Toyota "Epic", I thought the guy was from San Rafel? But who know's where he is now. I wouldn't think there would be to meny of thoes things floating around in that setup so you proably saw the same one. It was pretty crazy? But in "LA" everyone has a boat like that J/K. If I was a "Rap Star" or somthing That would be my boat "Crib's"

It's not a bad idea to get an extra battery. Just make sure to keep them separated from each other by adding a switch or you'll be draining them both. Also make a box for your sub, because most subís sound better enclosed I have two Ampís: a ARC 2500-CXL pushing over 1000 watts @ 4 ohms to my 13Ē JL Audio W7 (this needs at least 500 Watts to even run) & a ARC 4150-CXL pushing over 100 watts (ea) for 4 channels of clean crisp sound to my 6 Boston Acrosticís in the cabin and 6 tower speakers in a custom box built by Sounds Unlimited of Modesto CA. All being controlled by an Alpine CDA-7995 CD receiver which plays MP3 files, has AM/FM/XM and which controls a 12 CD Alpine Changer.

I have posted pictures on this http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/3183/43864.html?1035875253

Grant, That had to be one of if not the loudest set-ups I have ever heard. We were on the ramp pulling the boat out of the water, and they were about 150 yards away. I could hear it loud and clear, they pulled the boat out of the water and we all just tripped out on how many subs and speakers the guy had. The step to get to the back of the boat was pretty custom.

Remember if you decide to add a battery (which you probably should if you are adding an AMP and woofer) to upgrade or recoil your alternator. My MC came with a 50-amp alternator, which I have had recoiled into 100-amp alternator.

ive been running for the last year on stock alternator (65 amp) and 1 battery (optima red top),2 amps without any problems but i do carry a spare battery and jumper cables -just in case (not wired in)--running 300 w to the sub, 300 to the tower and 200 to the boat speakers, no tower lights

thanks for the advice guys. Grant, that system is insane dude. Do u have any idea of the power he has pushing those things? That thing would shake fish to the top of the lake. As cool as it might be, i think it would interfere with the wakeboardability of the boat. but whatever, it looks pretty sweet

Wakeman" Iím not sure of what he had as far as Power,Amp's, I think it had to be over 3000 watts other wise your just playing with matches "Wakeboard ability" Yea Iím sure thatís NOT what they had in mind when he built it. The "Owner" said every time they (he and his friend's) go out they have more boat's than people, and they end up riding in some ones else's boat for weight and or a 3rd so one boat is usually sitting any way's, They needed a Party boat, They Got it. I think this Boat will be at the 2003 "Boat Show" in Pleasanton Ca, this Jan. My friend Mike, knows the shop where this thing was made, He said the total cost was Much higher than the $25 thousand I said in my earlier post, It would be cool to put together a list and photo's of other Extreme Boat's Like this. I have heard of other boat's Like this one with "Monster Stereo system's" and DVD players 10,000 watt's ect. I know they are out there, Post them up. Ill try to get more info about this and more crazy set up boats

A friend told us about the thread talking about the Epic that we built. What is not seen is the 9th 12" sub under the drivers dash. The grills for the woofers were machined for us out of 6061 aluminum 1.5" thick and nickle plated. We used a 180 amp alternator and three optimas . The tower consists of 4 MB Quart 8" co-axes bi-amped by a Xtant 604. The boat interior system 3 pair MB Quart RKC 116 6.5 " co-ax and 1 pair MB Quart PSD 213 5" separates cut into the dash, all run by another Xtant 604. The 8 Image Dynamics ID max 12' Subs in tne rear are powered by 2 Xtant 1001,the 9th 12" sub is powered by a Rockford BD500. This boat is REAL, and was fun to build. Any Questions please call Kustom Kar Audio 1.707.527.5000 Thanks Scott}
