    Do you have pictures of the speaker/sub placement? Did you remove the old ones? Was it difficult to wire?

    I will look for pictures...I have them somewhere but I sold the boat today and no chance to get more now. But...I left the existing in and hooked up, these were in addition to what was there. The sub is under and centered in the jump seat opposite the helm. The amp was put in the salon cabinet that is high next to the electrical panel in salon.

    I did not do the job myself...all told it was 2K but worth every penny. The existing amp...the tech said he had never seen a smaller one, left it to power the 2 salon speakers.

    Hi, member for a while 1st time post.
    I’m in Australia and the 290’s are renamed 325’s for some reason. Love the boat 1st cruiser I’ve owned and have been slowly bring back up to spec over last 3 years. My question is at low cruising speed with both engines around 1300 revs I get slight harmonic vibrations. Being mechanically sympathetic I was wondering if this is normal or I may have a balance/ alignment issue. Probs are clean as recently out of water for summer preparations. Thanks in advance

    325 is probly because the actual length is 32.5’
    I. Believe if there was an issue it would be at various speeds

    Welcome.

    I also have a few weird vibrations at lower speeds that seem to smooth out higher in the RPM range. I know I have one slightly bent prop and a transom that is worn out and wobbly so I've just been dealing with it until I can get scheduled for a pull out and repair.

    If it doesn't get any worse, on your next major out of water service have it looked into. You can check props to see if they have been nicked pretty easy while still in the water. Calm waters and put the outdrives in trailer mode and lay on the swim platform. The props should be pretty close to the top of the water.

    Thank you for your suggestions I'll certainly look at the Transom next time out of the water. I recently had out of the water for summer preparations and anti-fouled and re-prop speed the legs and props. I inspected the props and looked fine from my observations,
    Cheers
