    Made the three hour drive tonight with the wife and kids from Portland to Seattle and got checked into a hotel thats on the parade route----GO SEAHAWKS!!!! Parade is tomorrow

    @ Woody If I remember right, I joined you on the dock and hopped a ride through the cut? You had your wife and child with you... The way I see things is, if you go with 4 SXT9 you end up with a LOT of sound on the tower that is dynamic and pleasurable and family (read wife) approved. If you go with 4 XM9, you end up with a tower sound that offers more projection out to the rider. However its got more of a live sound. Guys like Langston are going to prefer this setup because its a bit more sharper. If you think thats the ticket - don't forget that you can flip the internal switch on the XM9's and dampen down the horn a bit. It's pretty easy to do. Balancing either of these two setups is important with a good cabin / sub upgrade.

    Default XM9 or SXT9

    No kids with us, but all the rest is correct. I'll give you a call next month and we'll get it set up. At least by then we should start to be a little warmer, and I'd be able to get started on the install. No sense in having the stuff here in boxes now... taunting me.

    Mike, what exactly does the switch on the XM9's do? Thanks.

    I think the fancy term is attenuate the Horn Driver.

    In reality what it sounds like is the horn doesn't start projecting for a few feet.

    With the Switch on +3 <if i recall> and on a tower that is over the center of the cabin or the windshield like mine is, then the Horn is full power by the back seat, and the people in the back seat are getting blasted with the horn.

    On -3 <if i recall> the horn is much tamer and seems to get really loud once its past the rear seats. This allows it to not over power your cabin as much and yet still project to your riders.

    I know this isn't as technical as MLA or AudoDave but this is my best real world explanation LOL.

    Thanks for the explanation. I originally thought the switch shut the horn off.
