    I’m doing literally the same thing to my 2004 Xstar right now. Did you need spacer rings behind the 7.7”s in the cabin? I know the driver speaker you had to modify, but how about the others?

    Sounds good! The changes you hear would be expected as the speaker axis changes.

    Only comment I have is on the power wiring at the battery.
    Ideally, the positive and ground connections should be on the opposite ends of a parallel battery setup. This will pull current evenly across the whole bank. Same for the charging wires.

    I found my old red powder coated Dana Marine billet battery boxes from one of my Donzi's and figured they would look better in Dan's XStar than sitting in my hanger collecting dust. Still need to find bigger spacers and longer bolts for the third battery since the distribution post clamps are taller. Also to compensate on all the weight being on the port side, I moved the two starting batteries to the strbd side. Also put my Fluke amp clamp on the stereo batteries and got 251 amps peak

    Ok seriously though, we were out testing the sound on the water and my God is it loud. What was weird though is I got on the dock to get some videos of the boat driving away and it kind of sounded like some of the frequencies were being missed. I'm assuming this is just the sound of the engine and waves canceling them out? It sounds amazing in the boat. Here are the videos I got which is pretty much exactly what I was hearing in real time...

    I've gotten really good on the installing of speakers, amps, etc but tuning is still a bit new to me. What's the best way to get these dialed in perfectly? Especially the JL cockpit speakers since the amp is rated at 185w rms per channel and the speakers are 100w rms. we want these to last

    That's a very nice boat with a very nice stereo. You must be very wealthy, especially mentioning Geist!!
