  1. +2, but technically speaking, you are 10,517 posts behind him.
  2. I have the rockford fosgate pmx 5 can (not the shape / design you are looking at). I would not buy it again. the first one quit working on season 2. To their credit, they did honor warranty and replace it no questions asked. I think the Fusion would be a more rock solid option.
  3. not sure what all you are trying to do, but if you would be happy with a bluetooth connection to your phone, JL makes a nice (cheap) discrete unit that you can wire into your existing set up.
  4. follow up post in case someone else experiences the same in the future; a new distributor cap and new spark plugs fixed the issue.
  5. My son likes to argue with Amazon Alexa. I don't get it, but it seems to keep him entertained. To each their own.
  6. wakeboard with the rope on top. I don't think you will find that it rubs that much when under tension.
  7. Dennis. Realize that any project you do can be part of a longer term journey. You don't have to do it all at once. I do think if you just replace the speakers on your existing head unit, you are going to be disappointed in the results after what you are going to shell out for those M6 speakers. If you are buying JL. go to their website and look at the cutout dimensions. they are posted there. I think I had the same Panasonic's you have and even though they are both 6.5" speakers, they are not identical cutouts. The JL 6.5 worked for me without any fiberglass cutting. The bo
  8. In follow up on WWT's opinion, I would point out that I had these "cheap" Boss 6x9 speakers that I thought were total trash. I was planning to swap them out with other JL products to match the JL MX 650's (now the M3's you referenced) in boat speakers that I previously added. However, once I installed a JL 600/6 amp, it really cleaned up the Boss speakers. They sound much better than they did with a cheap Boss amp. It you are looking for quality sound, don't skimp on the amp. You might be surprised as it may bring your old speakers to life. JL 600/6 is my vote (de
  9. highly recommend Makers Mark "Private Select" if you can find it. limited batches out there. about $70 for 750 ml, but worth it imo. It's not your grandpa's Makers. ice +1
  10. Welcome to the forum Jeff. Sorry to hear of your initial Chappy experience. I would try to anchor it back at the dealership and ask for your money back if that was my initial experience. My '16 Chappy has been pretty good overall. Some small fit and finish issues that I just accepted. Never had the steering wheel come off in my hands. Now an annoying motor issue that I am trying to trouble shoot.
  11. thanks for input. just weird that it gets better after a few runs. I am fuel injected, but I will research the other two suggestions.
  12. IF I am reading your question correctly (?), I would not think that the Aux "IN" L/R have anything to do with setting up a new pair of speakers. I doubt you are "pre-wired" for a tower set of speakers and if you were it would be speaker wire as opposed to RCA cables. The Aux "in" would be sending a signal TO your stereo - not the other way around. What is attached to the other end of the Aux in cables at present? any system that is sending input to your stereo (just guessing, but is GPS/ nav / other electronic systems sending input?, was there another option you did not elect?). I suppos
  13. Mechanical question. Not sure where to start with this (aside from another call to the mechanic). Boat starts fine this season, but when initially accelerating it bogs down. It idles fine with normal cadence. Never stranded. Not throwing any audible codes. After doing some 0 - 30 ? runs repeatedly it will shake out and then be fine. I have burned a full tank of gas and 2 cans of seafoam. Reluctant to call the mechanic b/c after running the boat for 15 minutes it seems to clear up and accelerate well. any thoughts? Input appreciated. '16 Chappy h20. 4.3 merc.
  14. as a 2013 you probably have the cmd5 clarion? If you don't like it and don't care about the remotes, just replace it with a new head unit. get a new unit that has blue tooth and control the music with your phone. swapping out for a new one is not that involved if you are up for a small project. couple hundred dollars. More in time and research.
  15. just a thought. Not sure what kind of set up you have, but is the blinking a pattern? It could be a code trying to tell you what the problem is. might be worth a quick google search to check.
