    All good stuff and I appreciate all the info. I definitely want it musical for in and around the boat, not across the lake. I could hear my old boat coming in from several hundred yards and it sounded awesome with Samsom Kilpsch speakers and a sub next to the engine on an I/O. The cabin speakers were never in play. Sounds like I can't go wrong with Exile or WS. Just have to get a box built to specs under the helm, that seems to be the tricky part.

    Hopefully I can start this back up without a new thread...Might be tricky to fit a 2.0cf box under the helm of the Max. Box builder will be out in a week to take a look. IF I can't get a ported box for a 12, should I go sealed (was thinking the Wetsounds Revo 12xxx instead of Exile Xi12 if I need sealed, 2x the RMS) or do a 10" in a ported box since that will probably fit? Was checking out the Kicker L7S subs for 10".

    A higher power handling woofer, and amp to drive it, will certainly help offset the lost output potential difference between a ported and sealed. A ported 10" would give back some on output, but you do lose a little bass extension.

    Id get those gross dimensions, then work from there.

    I added a kicker 12Ē L7S to my max in a 1.25 sealed box, which was the minimum recommended. Iím sure a professional box builder could get creative, but I could not figure out how to get a bigger box in there. You really are limited on space.

    Ugh, and I want a 2.0...how do you like that Kicker? That's one of my options also.

    All is good now, box builder can fit the required box for the Big12. Should be a fish killer. Thanks for all the input.

    Absolutely! how do you like the xs65's in the cabin? I was hoping to add another pair but the Wetsounds amp that comes with the boat (HTX-4) is perfect for 4 interior and I would have to get a new amp (like the HTX-6) to run an additional set I think. I've already spent enough money and the wife really wants some interior lighting.

    They freakin scream! I was considering adding another pair off the get go but once I installed everything and tuned the amp itís really not necessary.
