Hey all. Figured now that I actually own the boat I'll make a thread of what I am doing to it. After buffing it and giving it a good scrub down its time to get my fall/winter project going.
First up: Finish the stereo. Nice to have some good tunes going while I do everything else this winter right??
I've got the speaker wires now and the amp should be here any minute from UPS. Here's a question for you guys: Does it really matter if you mount the speakers on the front or rear bar of the tower? I went to mark where I was going to drill and inspected the inside of the gunwale and its kinda narrow if i were to drill near the rear attachment and go up that tube but it may be doable. Just wonder if the angle would be too sharp for the wires and maybe cause a short later down the road. Here's a pic of the inside of the gunwale by the rear base of the tower
Has anyone ever had the speaker wire go up the front tube and then transition to the rear tube via the crossbars at the top? Or would it be fine to just install the speakers on the front of the tower?
Here's what im talking about. Orange is the last option i mentioned
Kind of a dumb question but oh well. Just don't wanna be the tard who installed the speakers all funky :-P Amp just arrived, gotta go do some inspection now!!
