Finally picked up my "slightly used" Mini X today; thanks Frank and Bunny for picking it up and babysitting it for a month!!!!!

Not sure what is in store for this boat, but "hopefully" I don't plan on going too overboard with it.... want to keep it as light as possible.

But a 22" flat screen would go really nice in that center hatch  :smt044

Most likely just a couple of rod holders up front, a couple of Hobie style hatches front & rear; and my Garmin Sounder....

Stay tune for updates!

Since I will be working on a good friend's 4.3 today, I thought I would work on my Mini X while waiting....

Do you think I should install 1 subwoofer or 2?

Bad location for the speaker!  If water got in there then you can't hear music  :smt005

Glen's been that guy.....you must have missed his tandem.  His stereo install was cleaner than the one in the video.

EEK- an 8" hole at the water line!
I'm pretty sure that indent is for the bait bucket.

Do you think I should install 1 subwoofer or 2?

A subwoofer does not generate sound, it just creates air pressure; it will push any water in it right out! :smt005

That is the bait bucket if the bait starts lookin bad you just turn up the bass It's like a difribillator.
