    Default Kamberra FINALLY upgraded!!!

    So, Drew hooked me up with some 6.5" Polk DB675 cabin speakers for a price I couldn't turn down, so I finally upgraded the stock 6" Kenwoods that are 13 years old. Took some work to expand the holes, but well worth the effort. What better to do on a rainy July 4th?

    So here's a pic of the old rear speaker

    Remove the housing from the boat

    Put the form over the opening and mark it for where it needs to be cut out

    Then use the Dremel to open up the hole

    Use the sanding drum to clean up the hole

    Install the new speaker

    Looks great! Cutting that bow fiberglass must have been a pain! Are your arms itchy?!

    In advance, coat your arms with baby powder.

    It was actually SUPER simple with that tool shown on my dremel. I don't know what it is, kinda like an end mill. It came with it. It was easier doing the fiberglass than it was the plastic, as the plastic cut so easy it wanted to walk or vibrate and then really walk. No itching whatsoever, just lots of fine powder everywhere. Shoulda been running the vacuum while I was doing it, but it wasn't that bad. Much much better than I thought it was going to be.

    Also, wash off with cold water first when cleaning up. A hot shower will open up your pores and the fibers will get in your skin and itch for days.
