  1. No offense, but that's not how it works. When both speakers push out = high pressure, when both speakers suck in= low pressure. If one pushes out when the other pulls in = no pressure. Swap the polarity to one of the speakers and I'll bet you will get your bass back. Plenty of boats have speakers facing each other and sound ok (mine included).
  2. I believe that fusion do 8.8" speakers. That could be an option if they fit? 0.2" is only 5mm so most likely would be a straightforward swap as long as you had the room for the extra height. They would crank too!
  3. Have you checked that the polarity is right for the speakers? Also +1 for the signature range fusion. I installed 2x7.7" and 2x6.5" with amp and new bt remote into mates fizz boat the other day. It cranked hard enough that he decided not to buy a sub
  4. We love our manson supremes. Had one on Jetstream and one currently on pork chop. Digs into sand like crazy and resets quick as. We bought a new one last year (35lb with 20m chain) and when sussing options the boys at CRA reckoned the rocna wasn't as good as it used to be. Oh and you couldn't pay me enough to put a plow on my bow!
  5. Anyone keen to join? Im looking for a dive buddy. Plan is 2x dives on air to max 30m. This is a rec dive with minimum penetration (if any). We will be anchored nearby and will cruise over in the dinghy. Suitable for reasonably experienced/qualified divers only due to depth. Cheers
  6. I reckon that's how it should be - freedive only, and then the deeper beds seed the shallower beds. For now banning dredging is a good start. We could say the same thing about paua, is it fair that the only divers who can get them are the ones who can hold their breath? If you can afford a boat you can afford to buy some scallops. Seafood gathering is a privilege and one that needs to be enjoyed sustainably. That at least as valid for the commercial crews/customary fishers too IMO.
  7. Good to see some action being taken on the lack of scallops. There is some real pressure on banning dredges and now this. https://legasea.co.nz/2020/12/17/coromandel-locals-restoration-plan-for-scallops/
  8. Ill just leave this here. What an amazing experience .
  9. Done. There ain't gonna be anything left for the next generation at this rate
  10. We had a 2 stroke 15hp yammy on jetstream. Great motor imo.
  11. Hey all. We are starting to plan a trip to the 3 kings next summer. Do you have any advice about this? When is the most settled weather? The plan is for some fishing/spearfishing/diving. I need to shoot me a 30+kg kinghy TIA
  12. That's a good idea The link i shared showed a snake that won't bend, they are designed to go through large diameter duct and physically couldn't double over itself in the mast. They have a large bend radius and would need a big force to snap. Can you not take the sheave out and then push the rod in from the top?
  13. You could use that, but those have a tendency to wrap around while being pushed down a large diameter tube, YMMV. A vac can work really well if there aren't any significant holes between vac and entry point. Failing that you could try a fibreglass snake, eg https://firstchoicecomms.com.au/product/fibreglass-snake-100m-reel-4mm/. if you know a linesman they might be able to loan you one for some beers. Years ago I used to hire them from the likes of hirepool, but nowdays I use a vac + bag + stringline for long pulls through big ducts. If I was you I would try the vac option first.
  14. Hey guys. Just checking in. We are chilling out, anchored outside russell. There are going to be fireworks and the kids are stoked as. This has been our first boi trip and we love the place. How are your new years?
