    Post Show your DIY exhaust snouts

    Looking for some inspiration to make my regular mid to look and sound like a offshore mid.
    Im searching for people who welded on custom made snouts. NOT the bobs machine snouts, i think they look weird, although it is the simple solution

    This is my test piece made from cardboard

    There are some posts on here about the perils of doing that... everything from the cardboard down will probably end up on the bottom of tbe lake.

    Yea i heared those stories, but since i dont have very high performance boat and will not go faster then 90kmh i doubt that will happen. You mean because of the strenght the mid loses if you drill in it right?
    Lots of people drilled their mid and put a bobs exhaust over it. (im sorry im immune to good advise :P )

    So i want to see how some people made their own exhaust.

    From an aesthetics point of view, make the sharp corners of your cardboard assembly into radii that are the same radius as the other features on the mid. That way it looks original. Right now, the radius is 1/16" or so, shoot for 1/4" or 1/2" until it looks right. This may be an obvious statement but it's all I have to add so I said it.

    Out of curiosity, does this help performance enough to justify? I have a the skill, and means to do this, just wondering if it will make a difference, or just more noise. My wife likes it quiet, but I'd like it faster ��

    No performance difference like fuji said , also. With a modified bass can with snout , is prob 50% louder than a offshore mid

    The offshore mid has lots more metal /thicker , so all sound actually comes out of the snout which sounds great , but a bass mid is thin and with can removed alone is loud, and add a snout it's really loud , and the noise kinda comes out everywhere if that makes any sense. Offshore mid , sound comes out of rear (snout ) and is actually quiter when the snout is buried under water until it surfaces , the 2 sound nothin alike. Just fyi

    It does not add H.P. correct it an exhaust relief and yes for hole shots it does make a difference. I'm jacked up 1-1/4'' above the pad with a D.A.H. 27p chopper heavy cupped. No hydraulic jack and 4 people I get up on step. Before the exhaust relief 2 people in the boat no way I go up.
