    Default Murder Max Mods

    Now that itís here Iíve already started modding the max, so I figured a thread to document everything was appropriate. If anyone has questions about anything donít hesitate to ask.

    #1: Adjustable height seat riser. I did this immediately, and itís a direct bolt in. The 12-17Ē is perfect for me to look over the tinted windshield without having to sit on the seat riser, and itís easy to lower down if we are just hanging out on the boat.

    #2 STEREO!!!

    I ordered the boat without any stereo options other than the transom remote. I worked out a pair of rev10ís from the dealer, and ordered the following from exile audio. I got a great deal and excellent service from Brian and Donovan at exile!

    Xi12D 12Ē sub
    6.5Ē speakers x4
    Javelin 5ch amp (interiors and sub)
    XM30.2 2ch amp (for towers)
    ZLD zone controller kit
    Miscellaneous wires/fuses/distribution blocks for install

    Last night I figured I might as well start with the most intimidating part, cutting an 11Ē hole in my brand new boat....



    I didnít get any during pics but here is the end result:



    ^you can see the adjustable seat riser in that pic as well

    Next up is building the amp rack...

    Oh yea, I used a premade box to seal in the back of the sub. I used an aerosol lacquer to coat it inside and out to hopefully help with moisture resistance.

    I used a window seal to help seal it to the back of the helm



    I used 2Ē #10 stainless screws going from the front of the sub, through the helm, and into the box

    Iíll get some pics of it mounted from inside the helm later

    Sweet! I'll probably do that pedal stool too! I feel like my 260lb physique is abusing the flip up riser...

    Amp rack layout done, just need to drill some holes, throw some carpet down and wire it. Iím going to add a single blue LED under each amp and the charger to give them a little backlighting.



    I also went ahead and added a rgb LED to each 6.5Ē speaker grill to shine on the woofer. https://www.oznium.com/led-bolts-pre...face-mount-led

    Great progress. some insight (that probably won't matter since you've already bought some stuff...

    1) Nothing wrong with a premade box. I'm kinda surprised you didn't go with the premade box with the bedliner coating on it. did you not find one of those that would fit in the space you had to work with? I would have recommended this one if you're going for sealed to save space, but it has the bedliner coating... I have one of these for a 10" sub I added and the bedliner coating they did is TOUGH and I was impressed:

    2) For the LED's to light up the cabin speakers, I would have probably went with a round LED Angel eye sized to match the bottom of that tweeter. But yours will probably look the same.

    3) Glad to see I'm not the only person that doesn't sweat it mixing exile and WS! LOL. I have the exile BT controller and REV410s. Brian just rolls his eyes at me.

    4) Love that max and your enthusiasm for modding it.

    5) if you go LED cupholders, I strongly recommend the ones that have the translucent barrels and the whole inside of the cupholder glows. They're premade and actually surprisingly affordable and definitely some of the most professional looking ones around.

    Thanks yíall. I did see that box when looking for one but it is slightly larger than what I ended up with. Space was a major concern and I ended up having to grind some fiberglass from inside the helm for this one to fit (if I had mounted the sub 1Ē lower then I would have been good, but the hole was cut at that point so no going back lol)

    Do you happen to have a link to those cup holders? I was thinking about making my own rings with some led strips and plastic water line for a refrigerator.
