Long story short, I won a grand prize giveaway at the annual WWS Tige Owners Reunion last July and it was $2,500 to "Pimp Your Tige" or $4,000 off of a new boat. I thought I was going to be able to swing a new boat this year so I held off and held off and then realized I couldn't do it this year so I needed to spend the money on my old boat. I've always wanted a little more sound, the Kicker ZX700.5 and 10" CVR sounded ok but I wanted a little more.
Thanks to Tige and Wakeboard and Waterski Specialty in Denver, I was able to upgrade the stereo in my 2007 Tige RZ2 a little bit and got some other non-stereo equipment as well.
Here's what I picked up for new equipment:
  • 12" Kicker L7
  • Kicker KX1200.1 (1,200 Watts RMS)
  • Wetsounds Syn 4 for the cabin

I built a new sub box (2.6 cu ft ported) and coated it before using truck bed liner on the whole thing:

I had to cut the helm wall out and secured the box to it and then recarpeted it (I am not very good at cutting the carpet).

As you can see, I still have some room for the heater and a couple of fenders...barely!

Overall, the upgrades exceeded my expectations! I can't believe how hard this L7 hits with the KX1200.1, way more than I was expecting. Special thanks to Phil White for guiding me in the sub and amp upgrade, I would have gone a different way than may not have met my expectations if it weren't for him.

Where did you place your battery?

My batteries are at the transom. I will need to add a 2nd stereo battery at some point. Right now I am running a single VMAX CT-2000 battery for the stereo that is charged by the alternator when the engine is running and then I charge it when I come home from the lake.
