    Default Brian adds another to the Exile family

    well, i've been snooping and reading... and reading.... and reading a lot this winter!! I wasn't happy with the quality of sound of my current speaker set-up so after debating back and forth for a while with myself i pulled the trigger and ordered 2 sets of SXT65's and a harpoon amp to run them. I also have purchased 3 sets of the SX65C in cabin speakers from Futureshop (gotta love gift cards) to replace the stock Kenwood speakers. I have a Kenwood amp to run them. I'm happy with the JL audio 12" sub and amp set up so i'm leaving that alone. I also managed to sell the current tower speakers which were a roswell 4 can setup to my little brother for his boat, so i was able to recoup some of my cost as well. The only thing that sucks right now is my boat is buried in our quoncet at the farm with the high clearance sprayer and a couple of combines in front of it. And there is about 6 feet of snow in front of the door as well. At least i know that it can't be stolen lol!! I probably won't be able to get it out until the very end of april and that is right when work gets stupid busy for me

    I also have to:
    Install my PP Stargazer
    install underwater LED light
    install all the LED's i bought for the cupholders and such

    Stereo goes in first so i can at least listen to tunes while i'm working on stuff!!

    Very nice, Geoff. Looking forward to some pictures of the install. I don't think you should add the new gear to your signature until you get it installed though. It's some additional motivation to get it all completed.

    Geoff -

    Welcome to the family. If you need any help with the install, drop me a line or email. Especially for the tuning setup. Ed's comments about the angles / on the water alignment are accurate. Although you should have a pretty wide field of sound right out of the box.

    I think your going to be VERY surprised how much of an upgrade this new configuration will be over the past setup.

    Send me some finished pics and I'll have my guy put them up in our gallery. Same goes for you Ed. We've got a new website launching here shortly.

    Cheers!

    -Brian

    I think Ed's comments are related to the height. When the speakers are parallel to the ground when sitting on the trailer it looks appropriate. But when you're loaded down, pulling and the boat is seriously squatted the speakers can be directed down to the water rather than out to the rider. Depending on the amount of ballast and surfing versus boarding, it can be a little different with each boat.
