    I have one on my STV "cable operated" with a stainless marine dash indicator. Scott is working on a new system "with the guys from trim sync" that will go directly into a cam bus for NEMA and will also have a choice of preset heights that you can go directly to.

    The porta's operate so quick It may have to be slowed down to be done with an auto feature.

    Parker offers 3 sets of fluid flow gears on the pumps that they use. I agree, the big set backs get whipped up and down,- "fishing pole effect"- but the short ones are manageable.

    8” R-Series, I believe. That gives it an effective 12-13” setback. The AMS mid has 5” more setback then the standard mids.

    I’m glad to hear they make a great product and I would love to have one but I can’t bring myself to spend that kinda money on one.
