    Amplifier info

    I actually have four of these speakers installed with 2 JL amps on my boat, they are not the loudest but the sound quality is really nice. It depends what you are looking for.

    Advice for enlarging speaker hole

    Dremel with a cutting bit (similar to drywall cutting bit) works really well. As suggested use a vaccum while cutting.

    2 questions re: 2008 signature 290

    I also added to a small piece of pex tubing into the storage drain to stop the water from draining into the engine compartment. Those 2 drain, drain directly in there very bad design. I know not the best solution but it works, with the silicone and that my engine bay is almost totally dry.

    The water goes in where the electrical cord goes in. Clean the hole and put a small bead of clear silicone caulking on the inside lip in order to form a small dam. it will stop most of the water from going in.

    2006 Signature 310, forward bilge access and odors...

    Check behind the ledge behind the shower sump pump it goes pretty far and there is no drain hole back there. If your shower/sink sump overflowed the water went there for sure. It happened to me. the cavity is about four feet deep, I had to use a shop vac to get all the water out.

    Cabin door cracked...can it be repaired?

    I believe the door is made by Spartech Marine (mine is.. 2009 Chap 310), and made using acrylic. http://www.teakisle.com/products_sliding_cabin_entry_doors.asp http://www.yellowpages.com/rockledge-fl/mip/spartech-marine-13360530

    Head ceiling light bulb change

    if its like mine... you just need to turn counter clock wise 1/2 inch or so and the cover will pop out. Some of them are pretty hard to turn if they never have been remove. No its not LED unless it has been change already. I have changed all my ceiling lights to LED keeping the same fixtures.

    Lost Power to Cabin TV, AMP and Subwoofer

    My 310 has a breaker marked TV if its off the tvs do not work... the breaker is located on the main breaker panel in the cabin. Sounds simple but who knows. You might also want to unplug your tv and plug it in a plug that you know works. Those tvs are plugged in the same as home tvs. As for the amp if you having done so try putting the volt meter to it to see if it has power. cheers.

    If water is not staying into the bowl, its a gasket problem.. change those. If not the leak is further down the pipe.

    Try a household plugger. Turn off the vacuum, add some water to the bowl, use the plugger as per normal and try to turn on the vacuum. That works most of the time.

    2011 Signature Series 310

    Not sure but check if the floor of your hanging cedar closet lifts up like in previous years it might be hidden in there.
