    I left them at the factory preset. maybe i nee to tone them down.
    Yes, You cant really tell the difference unless you crank them up and hit the switch. It not a HUGE difference but a significant one. The XM7s have this as well but its inside the case if i recall.

    It also makes the speaker sound a little warmer to me, this was designed in for the towers that sit farther up in the boat.
    "...starts its throw later..." That is an interesting concept and I would like to know more about this. Any further description of what is being done here beyond a basic attentuation circuit would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

    Ian - Looking good on the install. Let me know if you want some tuning help. I cant remember - is there a sub going into this boat also? I vaguely remember something about and XI12D. Maybe I got that mistaken with another boat. In any case, whatever tuning help you'd like. I'm "hear" for ya. haha!

    Yep, starting on the box in a few minutes actually. Got whatever 12 you recommended and a Xi1500.1

    I also think I've got Chase convinced to have the XM9's painted lime green Another one brought over to the dark side, errr well bright side I guess!

    Got into the box building tonight.

    Because I'm using a lot of the air space behind the "hump" I figured it would be easier to get the box in and mounted if I took that piece out. Much to my surprise it is only held in with 2 screws.

    Fiberglass floor and hump removed;


    The box, before;


    During - inside coated with truck bed liner;


    A mockup with the floor section;

    In the previous picture you can see what I'm going for, which is a 2.2 cubic foot ported box elevated off the floor, and butted up straight to the back of the hump, giving the appearance of the factory install, with better than free-air performance.

    Got the hole cut;


    Outside coated;




    I haven't decided in the placement of the port yet, as I need to mock it up in the boat to be certain where I want it; I think it will be on the right.

    I'm veto-ing the factory carpet on the baffle and going to wrap it in either white or grey vinyl.

    Just plain old birch. Someone told me that the acoustic properties of Starboard aren't good (no idea if its true or not) so I use birch and then coat it with truck bed liner. This box is far off the floor so I didn't use any fiberglass.

    LOL! I can tell you one thing; it's way more fun spending someone else's money than my own!
