Thanks to all you guys for the tips and to Sound Innovations for their great work. I wanted to replace my titan tower speakers with a wetsounds 485, add the harmon kardon ipod unit, and replace my failed PPI amp with two separate amps for the boat speakers and the 485.

hk1
cosmetic cover removed and drilled for HK face/wire


hk2
cover slotted to accept HK face/wire


hk3
HK face installed. I asked for it to be off to the right like that to minimize the chance of people accidentally kicking or hitting it since it's slightly exposed


hk4
view from below the face


hk5
side view. in the bottom right of the pic you can see the round black stock Clarion head unit control (which I never really ever used)


hk6
replaced clarion control unit with HK ipod controller


485
wetsounds 485 ready to replace titans


485tower


cooler
during my original install the under-the-seat cooler was modified into an amplifier storage area


noamps
cooler/seat removed


2amps
jl 300/2 for the tower and stock kicker ix404 amp for the stock boat kicker speakers


3amps
amps attached to risers and jl 1000/1 attached above the other two (drives jl 12w7 under the clamshell)


final
everything buttoned back up

Wes,
Do you like the look of just the single 485 in the center of the tower? I had one in the center of my tower and felt it looked a lil funny, so I added a second one. I thought it looked funny but then that is just personal preference. I was gonna add the Pro 80's to it but wetsounds has been back ordered forever on them

yikes, is it only me or does that look like a heat problem waiting to happen?

surpisingly heat hasn't been an issue (i had the 1000/1 on top of the PPI for 3.5 years). i think this setup may be even better since the amps are now slightly raised off the floor and have a little more spacing. hard to see in the pics but there is also an exhaust fan in the side of the enclosure, in addition to the opening on the back side...

i am OK with the look of the single 485. we almost always have the bimini up too which will change the look...

Didn't the PPI amp fail?

-- As Adam said, very nice install, very clean and looks great!
