As far as the Treble goes, thats just a matter tuning to your desire-I use the 420 Pre-Amp Eq on mine- As far as bass goes, you'll get it, but dont expect the bass from the Rev to be like the bass outta a Sub enclosure. I can say on my boat, I have no complaints on the sound

Yeah agarabaghi those pics look good! I'm not expecting bass like out of a sub, but my wet sounds are getting their bass butts kicked by the JL speakers that came in the boat. The JL speakers are pretty much carrying the sound on their back because they're producing 3 times more bass

I would bet its a matter of getting it uned right now that you are getting the power to them. I have 2 Rev10's and they produce great bass and a really well rounded sound for a hlcd.

The 7" JL speakers in the boat put out 3 times more bass than the wet sounds. I even hooked up one of the rev 8's and bridged it across the 300/2 and it didn't sound much better. I wish that I could hear someone else's speakers with my own ears. The cones look to be in really good condition, but they just had no bass thump. Are they looking for way more power? Are they only designed to be used with a huge sub to provide all the bass?

Any thoughts?

Is the 300/4 in high pass mode? Crossover set too high? Set the front and rear filter controls to freq range x1, 12db slope, HP filter around 80..somewhere between the 75 and 95.

That should give you a starting point

I tried all the suggestions that involved me using what I already have.

I tried hooking of the rev 8's to 2 of the channels on my JL300/4. Did not sound very good
I tried hooking up the pro 485 to the JL 300/4. No change
I tried rev 8's to each channel on the JL 300/2. No change
I tried the pro 485 on each channel of the JL 300/2. No change
I tried bridge in the Pro 485 on the 300/2. No change

The best sound I heard (still did not compete with the in ship JL speakers) was when I bridged one rev 8 across the 300/2 amp. But still very little bass. And I do not consider myself a bass whore at all fyi! haha

i hate to burst your bubble, but those arent rev8's on your tower, those are the older pro 80's it looks like. the pro80's will have less midbass than the revs, but i'm sure some amp tweaking can help. David at earmark will be around shortly i'm guessing, but with the amps you have, you're not powering them sufficiently in any configuration.
