    Hey Greg....what is up? I have my sub box done....well...about 91%. I still need to either paint it, gel coat it, or cover it in Herculiner to match the Rhino lining already in the interior. I will solve that soon. Oh yea, I also just bought a new (used) boat - <a target="_blank" href=http://www.geocities.com/keywestk5/Boat.html>http://www.geocities.com/keywestk5/Boat.html</a>. I have ALOT of fiberglass repair to do here. I found some water damage in the transom and other areas - it should be great fun!

    This post was to ask you a question - I am a little strapped for funds after the boat buy and the potential future cost of repairs so my door speaker selection has gone down a notch or two. I am now looking at Kenwood KFC-XR50p 5 1/4" Componet speakers (I was going to go with 6 1/2"). Should these give enough sound for the front passengers? I am getting these for a GREAT price and do not want to pass them up if they are powerful enough. Any input from you or other is welcome!

    Thanks

    Chris,

    Congrats on that boat! I was admiring it on your other post a few minutes ago. I'll bet that my hardtop still needs more fiberglass work than your boat does though..... /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    With the 8" subs, I would think a 5-1/4" coax would be fine.....you're not going to overpower the fronts with those subs, so I think that would be a good compromise. I never listened to that particular model of speaker.....but the "audition" should be your job anyway!

    You know......most boats I know of use a 12V electrical system just like K5's......that means that all the same stereo expertise you are getting can be applied to the boat too!!! /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Hey prembird, it doesn't make it any harder, it makes it more expensive. LOL. It is true what they say about boats "just a big hole you sink money into"

    I got bored with my boat and this is what happened to it <a target="_blank" href=http://207.212.78.115\k5krawlers\boat_system.htm>207.212.78.115\k5krawlers\boat_system.htm</a>
    Those are 2 crunch 15" subs on the side of the engine housing, two fozgate 8"subs Infinity seperates, two bazooka bass tubes under the driver and passanger dash area, 2 kenwood 1000w amps 1 4ch 600w, kenwood head unit, jensen disc changer. o yea yellow top optima battery. It lasted for about two years, but got thrashed over the winter time, plus it got in the way when we go fishin. What a waste but it was fun.
