Well I have decided to build the tower setup for the new boat. This is what it will consist of.

Two 8" subs Probably JL 8W3v2.
Four Kicker Resolution RS6 components. I had those on the last boat and they worked awesome.

Doug or anyone what 8" sub would you recomend up there? The Kickers on the last setup worked OK but the JL can be in a smaller inclosure and I assume they will hit harder. Suggestions.

Jeff a couple of factors played out for the change in plans. Our boat was suppose to be done in three weeks when we ordered it. Then there was a hold up for what ever reason which prolong the finish date. We were suppose to pick it up next weekend. They called us on Friday to inform us that they didn't realize that we ordered the bigger motor and that the boat would not be done until April 25th. Part two. After hearing of the B-530's breaking I definatly wanted the B-653's. Then I saw the price. So I decided to just build my own which I know will sound better any way's. The Dark side will get you, it's only a matter of time.

Mik I will build custom canisters for each speaker. This is the boat setup so far but nothing is written in stone yet.

Deck Sony CDX-CA810X
Changer Sony 10 disc
Sony wired remote.

Two Kicker RMB 8" Mids
Four Kicker RS6 components

One Kicker 12" Solo L7 in a bandpass box under the passenger dash.
One Kicker 12" Solo L7 in a sealed box under the drivers dash.
Six JL Audio VR 650-CXI Coaxials Two rear, Two dash, Two front

Amps I still have not decided on what to run yet. It will either be Kicker, JL Audio or Zapco. Leaning towards Four 500/1 JL's and One 300/2 JL to run everything. But still not sure.

Leaning towards a bigger alternator and three battery's to.

Travis, you can always buy the b-653 cans empty and buy the drivers from sound domain they are having a killer sale on MB Quart right now you should be able to build the same for less than half the price or less or just print out the ad on the internet and go to car toys they have a deal where they will beat anybody elses price by 110% that what I did.

Travis, I bought B 60 and B 50 cans from Stereo King in Portland ask for Dave they order all there Boss cans empty also its the store on 82nd ave. 503-653-8088. Car Toys link is
Look for the link on the page it's at the top that says Car toys advantage. Pick the speakers you want from print that page take it to car toys and they will sell them for that price - 10% it's a little work but you can save some bucks.

Sounds like a great set up Travis! We will have to have some stereo wars when we all hook. We are just finishing purchasing all of the equipment on the boat and will begin installing the ballast system and stereo set up. I can't wait to see your set up.
