Ian, what were your thoughts on the exile vs the NVS speakers you had in the past. I've heard exile around here but never the NVS speakers.

well, the Samson set up I had only had 2 S7HD's whereas the NVS Deviants were 4 x 10" HLCDs. The Deviants I had on the 08 Tomcat was by far the loudest set up I've heard yet. The 2nd set of NVS were never set up properly and I could never get that much out of them (it was the amp/power setup) and the Samson was amazing too for all around. But they weren't as loud behind the boat as the NVS. Maybe if I had 4 x S9HD's that would be a more fair comparison though.

I had noticed that that was a tower we manufacture, in looking closely I noticed that your spinner racks are mounted backwards, swap the port side spinner with the starboard and you good to go.. Any questions feel free to give me a call..

Is the Bimini modified on that MB to be able to flip the speakers up like that?

Nice looking couple of boats!

Yes we took the Bimini in and had it reworked so that it would wrap around the speaker mounts.
Thank for the compliment.

Tim the funny thing is out of all those setups the best one is that White Tige tower wiht the 4. Plenty of sound and great asthetics, people who put a bunch of speakers everywhere kill the asthetics of these beautiful boats.
Old    Tim White (wetsounds1)      Join Date: Jan 2006       03-16-2012, 4:33 PM Reply   
Chris, yeah some like the clean and simple for sure, our demo Tige has two pairs of REV 10's on the tower as I wanted the clean and simple and to demo just how loud 2 pairs with the right power can be. But there are others who love the loaded up look! But it is fun to see just how crazy and over the top these systems are. Pretty wild.

I did not tint the windows on the '10 black 230. I'm not a huge fan of tinted windshields. I drive a lot at night and it makes it too hard to see. The do look cool, though. Can't wait to see how my '12 Axis A22 turns out.

Why don't you see more over the tower set ups. Seems like most don't care for it? Is it just because its just different than the norm?

It's bc (in my opinion) it doesn't blend. Same as too many speakers, it takes away from an otherwise beautiful boat. I think it just looks kinda trashy honestly. 6 would be my max and they would all be under the tower. Some of those WetSounds boats I find myself being embarrassed for whoever the owners are.

But hey, everyone has different tastes and I definitely am not going to sit here and say everyone should see things the way I do. I just tend to be of the belief that "less is more" when it comes to boats. Chatt's last Nautique may very well be the most beautiful boat I have ever seen. Very nice and CLEAN!

I don't know if I would go as far to say that it is trashy looking. But like you said to each there own. For me I really didn't have an option my tower comes back far enough that if I would have put the speakers under the tower you would have had to duck down every time to get in and out of the boat from the sun pad. I have enough people hit the light bar let alone 10'' of speakers hanging down.
