Dont be a stranger if questions come up on the install. Every one of the guys on here is a good source and I'd be happy to take a call over the weekend if you need help on the final tune, or just want to run something by me.

You do know... your about to become your own worst enemy dont you? Maybe one of the guys can elaborate. chuckles!

Admitting that we're powerless over the "3 zones"—that our boats had become unmanageable with out quality sound.
Orrr something like that.:p

Hello my name is Mike and I'm an Exile addict.

I knew i had a problem in November 09 when I got my first taste of Exile.

It was a sudden rush of sound, and then followed by a pounding in my chest. All my thoughts were gone and all i herd was perfect sounding Boom Boom Pow!!

At this point I thought i could control myself but i found myself second guessing all my other equipment in my truck, my house, and my boat.

I thought if i just added a little to the boat i would be ok, i really thought i could handle this. I'm a strong individual and i can not get addicted to this.

As the months passed i would sit in the boat in the garage with a jacket just to get my Exile fix. Saturday would roll around and i would get the gitters, shakes, and nervous itch. I had been 5 days clean with no Exile and i couldn't resist. Pop in the Ipod and sit back while the track started. Boom Boom Pow..

As the months passed on it seemed like everything was ok. Then i fell deeper into my addiction as i needed more BOOM in my Pow.

I realized i was now Second stage of this wicked 3 stage addiction.

I fought it as long as i could but eventually the addiction was too much. I had to go deeper and i scraped and sold everything in my boat i could to pay for the second stage of my addiction and then i had it BOOM BOOM WOW.

This stage i was sure i was content in my addiction as i was now broke, neighbors now aware of my addition as there car alarms would suddenly go off at werd times of the day and night as i would get my fix. Now i was having to get this fix several times a week. My electric bill was rising as the charger for the boat was running constantly.

Random days Claudia would come home and fine me sitting back with a beer buzzed look in my eye and the garage shaking, neighbors cursing my existence, hatting the fact I was THAT GUY in the culd-esac. Little did they know what i was addicted to but they knew i was an addict of something.

When summer of 2010 came buy i thought i was finally in control, it had been 4 months and i hadn't had to spend any more money on my addition. Then Exile upped the anti with Coaxial cabins. OMG up till this point i was ok with stage 1 and stage 2 addiction but now i suddenly wasn't content any-longer. I had to have the Stage 3 fix now. It burned in my mind, it was all i could think about. No longer where my cabins worthy of my other equipment.

I had to have them in my world, in my little hands that were quivering. I would make stops at the Exile shop weekly and try to get my fix of the 3rd Stage be means of there displays. It wasn't enough, i left each time feeling cheated.

June 27th on my birthday my 3rd stage fix became a reality as i opened my gifts, only 3 of them but it was all i needed. 3 pairs of SXT65s oh how my addition jumped, it was like a first time fix again i was on top of the world. I thought ok now i admit im an addict and im ok with this. I can do this what more is there now. I have Stage 3 and there is nothing more.

March 2011 update i have entered Stage 4 of my addiction. Yes there is truly more stages to this problem. I have now realized my Boom Boom WOW is not enough. I must have more to it. I need a larger dose because as any addict knows you have to increase it as your tolerances builds up. I have had to upgrade my WOW to BANG!! 2500 pure 1ohm wattage to kick that Boom into another realm of pleasure.

Then the real kicker came into play. The Dealer, the puppet master himself saw my starting to slow down on my addiction. He though i must not lose one of my pawns, i must make him stronger in this addiction.

The introduction of what he calls the Hybrid Set up.

This has to be Stage 5 of the addiction as i have lost all control. I just hand him my Platinum card and say do what you will. I am your slave now.

Everything in my Stage 1 addiction is gone, as i wait for the new Hybrid set up to be built so i can install it and get my next fix.

Will it ever end? I doubt it.

I have admitted im an Exile addicted and i understand there is no known cure at this time.

There is only a partial cure. You cannot defeat the addiction but you can learn to control it somewhat. All a good man has to do is utter these words:

"I DO."

"I DO."

and thats not all it will end or cure!

Hey is "I DO" any thing like pull the trigger? That's the question Brian asked when he gave me the info :)

It went something like " Hey Rob if you want to pull the trigger just let me know".

I respopnded with "PULL"

BTW, Brian can you get me a quote to upgrade my 6 in boat speakers and a killer sub with amps and make my tower a 6 pack with HLCD's?

I keep telling my wife that as far as addictions go, this is one that the whole family enjoys. I could be at the bar & casino drinking it and gambling it away. At least I have something to show for it :)

She kinda gets it :D

I'm in stage one, however my stage one was so huge that I am surprised that I did not OD. Everytime I see that video on utube of mikes XM7s i feel a little stage two coming on.

I must fight this off for at least a year! May have some SXT65Qs for sale in the classifieds sections if I give in.

you want quick disconnects now?

yep, bad back and the xtra 40lbs on the tower doesnt help matters much--thats the only reason

Im not 100% on this but I think for me doing an upgrade to the XM7 consist of opening the box and putting the XM7 on my quick disconnect clamps that I already have installed. Should be an easy swap!

Yes that should be it because as i understand it the quick disconnects are the exact same clamps as the XM7s have. This is why when you place an order for SXTQs you have to wait because they actually installed the quick release clamps in the shop right then.

Well the motor and locker covers are in for new skins (warranty).
The plastic indmar cover is off to help chase wires fo davinci.
Carpet is out... well for new carpet.
I always take the seats out when I work on my boat. I don't need any accidents ie. razor blade left open etc.
measuring for new sub boxes, from 10"s to 12"s.
Remounting amps/distro block (making room for bigger box).

Thats all I can think of for now.:p

omg you guys are funny.

I think there is like 6 conversations going on in this thread. See what you started Ryan?

Everyone operates at their own level and own pace. But I wasnt kidding about being your own worst enemies. Sometimes its me the audio guy that has to slow some people down... I've had more than 1 conversation where I said, "whats your wife think about that..." no joke!

@Mandley, god that post of yours is hilarious. I think you'r boat is going to rock when done. I actually sent some youtube video's this morning to Dusty showing him the hybrid setup on a few other boats. I'll let him chime in on what he thought.

@ Seanthings; No problem. I'll put something together and shoot you a pm.

@ Newty; Dude! get that boat put back together theres sun out!

@ RD; mike had it right on the swaps. The dealer I sent you to probably has XM7's he could loan you for a weekend for a trial if you wanted to do the swap. Everything fits on the same post.

Have fun guys!

Brian, what exactly is this so called hybrid set up? and that would be awesome to demo xm7s. I would be really cool to get a pull with the sxt65s, then swap to the xm7s and get a pull i could really tell what the difference was.

Hey Brian I want the blame for this one :) I look forward to the pricing quote...can someone please say STOP not slow down!

If it isn't possible and you have to send 'em back in a swap you'll only have to ship one pair back. I'll take the other one.
