Ahh... Good point. I've got two sets of speaker wire from the PO that come out on the forward hoop. There's another hole where the factory cans were. (fishing for wire acces?) Maybe, just maybe I can fish the tips over the last 6-8"....

Its a little head scratcher/nerving to drill a hole, then spend the next however time 'hoping' we can get the wires to the location.

It would be pretty neat to use the factory spot on the tower, (the center cross bar w/ hole) in the pic above as the Rev can mounts look to be centered-ish

If those had been available when I installed my rev10s, that is probably the way I would have gone.

JRW.... I was looking at your album... Did you by chance temp mount them on the front, then permanently mount on the stern side pipe?

I had pro80s mounted on the rearmost tower bar. The wires ran from the front bar to the back of the speakers. I have always had the rev10s mounted on the front bar.

Pro 80s


Rev10s

Well, FINALLY fished the wires thru. Like others have said on other posts, wow.

So I used the existing tower wires to pull the new 14g thru (red arrows). Definitely a two person job, having one feed it in the hole at the observers side attachment/pivot, while the other gently pulls along on the tower to not stretch and pull it loose.

After searching around, the only place to go between the two hoops with a 'factory' hole is at the center cross member (blue arrows) . The other two (maroon lines) are solid thru. Figured they had to get a wire to the nav light somehow. Unfortunately we had to drill two holes to use tie wire to fish the lines to make the two 90* bends (orange lines). Since we need to plug a few other holes, I can either plug them with a flush grommet, or weld them up and grind.

Anyways, that 14g was a PITA, but hopefully worth it. I couldn't imagine 12g. I also imagine you'd have to enlarge the hole where the tower meets the deck up under the observers seat if anyone was going the 12g route. Also, if I did it over again, I'd use the 'round' style wire vs. the 'flat' stuff. The store only had flat in stock, so that's what we grabbed. After that route, I'd go round to assist the 'feeding' thru.

Appreciate all the help thus far.... You guys are awesome.

Now to install those amps and sub....

OK.... Sorry for not giving an update, but here's where we are at...

We had waited forever for the Alpine and apparently Alpine is not making the PDXV9 now...
Soooo, in trying to stay in budget this year we did this....

PPI 900.4 for the Rev 10's
PPI 900.4 for the In-boats (Polk DB 6501's x 4)
PPI 1000.1 for the Sub (Polk Momo 10 - 4 ohm, SVC
3 LC-1's to control Tower, Boat and Sub

(I wish we could spring for the upper end amps... but with house, family, etc I'm sure a lot of you can relate on budget. Figured if we wired it now, we could always upgrade later...)

So we built a quick sub box for this summer for a Polk Momo 10" that we picked up and installed the amps. Had to kinda haul butt in the evenings last week to put the boat back together for a day trip.

While we were up there, we turned on the stereo and I was NOT impressed. I am guessing that I am not running the speakers correctly. The REV 10's actually had no bass and sounded 'tinny'... When I got home I tried looking up what leads go to where on the terminals, and am having a hard time finding out how to run this amp in 2 channels, bridged to 4 ohms to get the 450W.... The manual has no description of what to where.

Below is what I've got and hoping ya'll can help a brother out before we leave in a few days for Eastern Wa for the family vacay week...

Clarion M309 --> 3 RCA's to the 3 LC-1's --> LC-1's back to the Amp inputs --> Out to the speakers
