2007 24TE JL 8.8 fit?

Recommended Posts

Thanks Miss Jazzy. I figured the console would be easy but didnt want to purchase them if couldnt fit them in both locations.  8.8s it is!

Oh and in case you didn’t know... they will blow your hat off!!! You will not be disappointed as long as you hook them up to plenty of power.  The more the better.

They fit there on my 2018 HPS.....No spacer. And as Jazzy said, they're louder than you want to stand in front of if you put some power to them.

I'm running an 800/8 bridged down to 4 channels at 200w/ch. Yes, the 400/4 will work well. Good luck! Just read "older TE" sorry I missed that part. I don't remember, but I think mounting depth is just over 5". I really hope you can make them work as they're night and day over the 7.7's.

Yea I'm running a m400 bridged to 200/2 on two 8.8's. So would go with the 800 like Brad to run 4. Running 4 off the m400 isn't going to be enough power in my opinion.

How do you like just two 8.8's?  Enough sound or do you wish you had gone with 4 (2 forward and 2 aft)?  Thanks!

The 2 8.8's are plenty. I also have two 7.7's on the sides of the console and can't hear them over the 8.8's. But I don't have any power on them, they are running off my Fusion stereo. One day I'll replace the m400 for a m600 and power up the 7.7's. But to honest you'll be happy with just one pair of 8.8's. They are way more then I ever expected.

I can't speak to running two 8.8's, but I know having four all firing inside the cockpit is louder than I want to stand between at full tilt, and I like clean, loud systems on a boat. You almost can't turn the highs down enough while at volume...they're clear and about take your head off.

That's crazy but that's why I had to use spacers. I needed another 1/2". Both sides were different. One would've fit without spacer but the other wouldn't. There was also a bunch of foam that I had to remove too. Guess every boat is different. The 7.7's are excellent speakers and you'll be happy with them but the 8.8's are night and day different.

Here is a thread I done on the subject: 

 

I didn't pull the speaker off and look behind the 7.7 but i stuck my finger through the hole where the rod butts go and i didn't feel any foam behind it on the port rod locker.  However, the insert where the rod butts go stuck out behind the back of the rod locker 1/4" or 1/2".  I think that's what the issue was on mine.

 

The system with a pair of 8.8s and 7.7s is ridiculously loud when running so I am definitely happy with it.  Can't imagine how loud it would be with 4 8.8s.
