Speaker advice and help
I accidentally posted this in the help forum so please ignore that one. So I don't own a wakeboard boat per say, but I'm hoping I've come to the right place anyway. I have a '96 Godfrey Hurricane 25' deck boat that I love. It's perfect for the family. I do a lot of cove parking and we even have some small islands that have beaches here. I like to drop the kids off on the beach and listen to music. Right now I only have 4 coaxals near the floor of my deck, which does not project the sound outside the boat. I met someone last week who has a pontoon and he brought out a 12" portable PA speaker running off an amp. It turned into a party on the island, and it was a lot of fun. I'd like to hang some speakers so I can do something similar when this person isn't around. I'm looking at a pair of Krypt HLCD 7.7's. I'm going to fabricate some custom mounts because I want to be able to move the speakers depending if I'm parking on the beach or floating besides the boat. I also don't have a tower, and have 7/8 rail around the boat.
Anyway I guess my question is, if I'm floating 10-30 feet from the boat, or the same distance on the island, am I looking into the right speakers? I want to have the ability to get loud if I want to How is the bass with the 7.7's? I've never heard HLCD's in person so I'm hoping yall can fill me in. .
I'll end up adding a sub later.
Here is a picture of my model boat. I'm going to get a 7/8 rail mount and adapt it to hold those speaker pods. That way I can move them around the boat and aim them off the size/front/back etc.
