New system making waves
Sundown sa 12 making ripples on a glassy day on the water

Nice!! I just put in 2 SA15's with AQ 2200 watt amp on them.

+8 points for making the water dance
-10 points for playing Flo Rider. LOL

But on a serious note that's pretty cool for a Single 12 that's not even pointed at the side of the boat.

DISCLAMER: Making water Dance has NOTHING to do weather your boat is hitting hard or Not.
Some boat's have lots of flex in some areas and that Aid's or enhance's this effect.
also how your box is tuned can also have a effect,

Boat's that have lots of freeboard and span a distance between the floor and the top of the gunnal tend to have more flex. This can work like a Drum head.

My Nautique has a very Short distance "or span" between the floor and the gunnal and its built like a Tank. try pushing on the side and you get little to no flex. Trying to get that boat to do a "water show" is pretty hard.

Other boat's you push on the side of the hull and its like a trampoline!

Have you ever tried putting a sundown SA 12 with a 2000 watt amp in your boat to see if your Nautique will make water dance you might be surprised most people that hear sundown in the proper box are

This X-Star has 4 JL W6's in the Passenger compartment

Grant, do you have any canceling issues with the passenger side firing into the hull and the other two firing directly into the cabin?

grant_west 03-20-2013 3:48 PM

Dan: No Issues. I have found it's tricky to predict weather your going to have them or not. Some installs have canceling issues written all over them right from the start. I had done another system that was close to this system and it had issues. We had to tune one box to a diffrent freq to sort the issues out. But now with Digital EQ's like the DSP and the New ARC EQ you can Time Delay and do alot of tweaking.

Dang grant your to rich for my blood I went with sundown because I couldn't afford a w7 much less 4 of them.
