    This is not the case with a Mondo since there is no center locker. You have to go around the bow or drop down the hole where the battery cables are, come across in front of the gas tank, then up on the driver side. You can lift up the center floor and see how they ran wires across from the factory. I run my sub power wires this route and the WS420 wires around the bow.

    XTP drills it prior to welding so they can run the tower light wire.... Why in the heck they dont do it on the port is very frustating...

    Congrats on the Stereo - Looks very nice. From the pictures, I'm guessing King Pin installed? Looks like their install area. I might have missed it someplace if it was mentioned.

    In anycase, hopefully I'll see you on the water.

    Cheers!

    Well I guess it will be easier to go around the bow...that's how I did it on my outback 2006..

    How bad would an open air sub sound on the panel under the helm? My wife keeps giving me strange looks when I talk about spending more money on the new boat. Looking to go with a Kicker 11KM10 between this and an amp I'm under a few hundred.

    That's a decent sub that is kind of a quasi infinite baffle. It will definitely work as a free-air woofer with a slight reduction in power handling. So normally I would say go ahead with it. However, an infinite baffle (IB, free-air) woofer still needs an enclosure just like all woofers do. The difference is that an IB woofer likes an expansive enclosure, even an infinite enclosure. This makes taking advantage of existing boat compartments such as seating or helm consoles convenient and inexpensive. But you must have total front to rear acoustic isolation for at least a distance of 5.5 feet away from the woofer in all directions. Your kickpanel/façade (if that description fits your particular boat) under the dash is wide open over the top and provides little to zero isolation. This means no deep bass, no damping (control) and extremely poor power handling. If you have a floor hump to install the subwoofer into this is an improvement but still less than ideal. I would wait and do it right with an enclosure. The right 10" correctly matched with the enclosure and power can do a really good job.

    Thats an excellent marine sub, one of the best sounding IMO. But I would seriously consider putting it in an enclosure, as opposed to IB. Feed it a solid 250W rms.

    Sampp1963 -

    Sorry for the late response. It appears the wiring goes two different directions. Under the center walkway and up around the bow.
