Cutting the hull...I'm such a chicken SH$T
So I bought this kick A$$ Jensen stereo system for my ski. Mounts remote down in the front hold, with a long commander cable that goes up to a Command module on the glove lid. Controls the ipod and everything from there....
and I picked up some REALLY nice 6" Sony waterproof black speakers. Yes, 6" is a LITTLE bigger than you would expect to see...but there is ample space on the sides in front of your legs....
But I just can't MAKE THE FIRST CUT. I get EVERYTHING ready to go...and I just can't do it, man. I can't cut through the ski....
I gotta make a move tomorrow and get it done.

Dude! That is a NICE JOB! Until I seen the pics from behind I wouldn't have noticed the speakers.

LOL. I was REALLY expecting all the messages to be "dude, you $us#@, cut the hole"..."what are you waiting for...."....."man, grow some balls..."
Ok, so maybe I won't cut the hole today. I just didn't want something that was added to the outside of the ski as something I could hit, bang, trip on, or accidentally rip off with a ski rope or a nice tumble.

I dont know how much "Boom" or sound your looking for but if your just looking for something to listen to while your riding get a couple of tweeters and put them where the mirrors go..They should be loud enough for you to hear while riding..Unless you want to entertain while on the beach then you might want to go bigger somewhere else...

Dude, you $us#@, cut the holes"..." what are you waiting for..."....man, grow some balls! Pussy That was fun Been where your at. It is tough to bring yourself to cut those holes. A pair of 4"s and a pair of 5-1/4"s. The speakers are submersible and I have them sealed at their edges with weather stripping so no water can get in the hull from around their edges. It sounds great and I get a ton of attention, and compliments at the beach. I have zero regrets Just do it!

That's a good idea too. If you're thinking of putting tweeters in place of the mirrors but also want some good bass, if there's enough room in the hull you could put in an Infinity Bass Link. It has everything in one little box. The sub is well protected and carries it's own amp all in one. I doubt it's waterproof but it will def. make a big boom when the bass kicks I have one behind the seat of my truck and it really rumbles it up nicely in there.

If you want to listen while your riding, get some water proof earbuds. Sound quality sucks while underway no matter what you ride or how big your stereo is, even in a boat. Others will probably chime in here and disagree, but between engine/exhaust and wind, the quality of the music is just sucked out of the boat. My 2 cents, and I'm sure that's all It's worth.
