how much power is everyone running to tower boxes with 6X9's and please just tell me how much power your running/getting away with as i know what my speakers are rated to and i know about setting crossovers. The speakers i just got are rated to 100 rms but i know for a fact many people are getting away with alot more CLEAN watts then that.

I'm running 6.5"s not 6x9"s but I am running a clean 200Watts rms to them with a Diamond Audio amp.

BTW - don't need the loudest stereo on the water, just one loud enough to hear while you ride.

Phaeton, I've got a 450/4 powering my hull speakers and I don't think it's putting out that much power. Are you happy with your 450?

Tom it is all in how it is wired and what load you are running the amp at. I have 4 6 1/2"s running off two channels and the 8" subs running off the other. One side of the amp puts out more power than the other side. Don't remember how mine is configured but it cranks.

In the boat I have eight 6 1/2"s running off of one 300/4 and it works awesome.

The 450/4 should power your boat no problem.

Hey Ryan,
You say you have an X-80, but in your profile you have a pic of a X-2. How do you afford that at age 18?
Let me know, cause I want a new super air.

the 02 X Star was my first tournament boat, I traded it in last year on the x 80, I just left the picture on on my profile because it has some centimental value
Actually I'm 19 and i don't afford it, I'm a college student but I a father who can afford it. he understands that one day i will be supporting him!!!
here's a picture of my x80

I'm running six 6.5 Pioneer's that are rated 65w nominal, and 100w peak. I power them with a Kicker 800.4, and they sound really good behind the boat.

looks like the x-80 beside that house might be worth more than the house! Is that your house?

the boat is at my house at college, and you're right I've proably got 40 grand more in the x80 than the neighbors do in their house!!

Hi Ryan, sorry for the hijack, how does the X80 wake compare to the X-2?

To my tower I have one half of a Crunch V4300 to the rear speakers 225w x2 @ 2 ohm & the other half to the downspeakers 150w x2 @ 4 ohm. Crunch gets slagged far & wide but I'm very happy with there amps & the are excellent value.

Ryan, let our Dad know that I'm up for adoption That ride is over the top.
Old     (ryanbush11)      Join Date: May 2003       04-30-2005, 10:20 PM Reply   
The wake on the x80 is proably 1.5 - 2.0 times the size of the x2 with just the stock ballast full on both boats, it at 75 feet it's proably 1.5 times as wide also. Hitting it is like running into a 2 and a half foot concrete wall, I would say the the x2 is by far the best of the two, for overall shape, and we ran close to 4000lbs of ballast in it and the size got pretty close.

Thanks Ryan. The X-2 is my second favourite wake, it just needs a lot of weight to get it narly sized.

Hows the riding in New Zealand, I was susposed to come over there for a week over christmas but ended up spending an extra week in australia instead, didn't do any riding but got to do quite a bit of surfing and diving. In australia they have a big problem with jelly fish(stingers as they call them) in the rivers, and on the coast. alot of places they won't let people in the water near the beach I was just wondering if you guys had the same problem?

I have a aunt that has a house about 10 minutes from Ouachita in HSV, but i mostly ride on tenkiller, and beaver. I assume that you go to UA. I enrolled there for this fall. You wouldn't happen to know JJ or Clay Bauman would you, there a couple guys that I ride with up there every now and then.
Old     (jnewcom)      Join Date: Mar 2003       05-01-2005, 12:41 PM Reply   
I know both of them very well. JJ works at the malibu place, I have a VLX. When we go to ouchita we go with Joseph Meadows. Yell at me next time you come up and go to beaver.

NZ riding is good, some places are reputedly the best in the world. No we don't have any problems with nasty creepy crawlies, no snakes, crocs, spiders or jellyfish. If your heading this way again drop me a line, we love entertaining overseas guests.

yea, Joseph used to come over to tenkiller and ride, he's rode a behind my x star, and rode once behind my x80.

My email is
and my cell phone is 479 414 0152
if you're ever going to be on tenkiller hola at me and we'll ride, or if you're going to be in Fort Smith let me know and we'll go do something
