After going back and forth with POLK, JL and exile. I've settled with SX65-M and thanks to Supra, Moomba and Malibu forum members. I'm still waiting on my Cabin speakers and Led Strip Lights. But here's the picture of Acrylic Speaker Rings.

I took the pix in hurry since my dad just dropped the rings after he got it done for me.

sgoyal,
Nice rings. looks like those where laser cut or cut with a CNC.
I noticed this to be your first post ever on three different forums.
Since you happen to mention two other brands, I'm curious as to whether you ever actually listened to the Polk MM UMs or the JL Audio MXs before making your decision?
Also, how was the speaker decision unanimous per the three mentioned forums when you just joined with no prior discussions?
What kind of boat do you have?
Please post photos when you get the installation finished.

I'm curious why any of this matters? Please keep your Exile vs. Earnark drama off our site - I think it's unanimously unwanted.

I agree 1000%

I think what should be said,

Welcome to the Moomba Forum.

Congratz on your new speaker purchase,

Look forward to seeing some pics of your install of LED rings, i know quite a few are thinking about doing this but would love some pics of the process.

Those should really make your Supra glow like crazy! What color are you going with? As much as like blue, the green boat we did last summer was sick! 8 speakers, a sub ring and 18 cup-holders plus green underwater LEDs and it was over the top.

Any pictures of this green glowing beast you speak of?

Green Lantern would be proud! That looks incredible. I'm sure Ian is getting ideas.

lol - looks just like Chase's LSV that I did this summer.

My OBV will be similar, but with RGBs - I just finished up soldering all of the strips, and picked up the acrylic this afternoon. Cutting to begin shortly...

Ian post up some pics in the how to section.

How are the led strips attached to the acrylic rings, I can't picture it.

For the cup holders I don't attach the strips to the ring, I attach to the cup holder.

Speaker rings I just use glue to affix the strip to the ring.

I'll post a how to soon!

My boat needs some blue led love but I'm just afraid that all blue lights at night in south east Texas will attract every insect/mosquito on the lake...

Just keep driving!

I think I'd rather attract those than the water lizards. Are they attracted to light too?

Where'd the rings come from?

My dad created for me since he works in acrylic company and cuts tons of sheet everyday.

He offered me 1/4", 6mm or 9mm.. I went with 9mm and if I don't like it then he's going to cut new one for me LOL..
