    My 212x is a 2013 - it didn't come with any amps. I added everything.

    I'm sure your Polk 5000.5 is fine - your system just needs to be tuned properly.

    That was certainly my experience. I couldn't believe how bad the amp settings were.

    Anyone have a wiring schematic for the 2017 X? I'm trying to figure out how a 5-channel amp is running 7 speakers? Bow x2, Stern x2, tower (2 channel), Sub.
    I want to add a second sub, helm speakers, and possibly another set of towers, but I'm thinking maybe properly driving what I have and only adding helm and a second sub (with another 5000.5) could work.
    Thanks!

    Are you sure you only have 7? Mine has 2 bow, 2 beside the rear seats, 2 swim platform, plus the tower bar and sub. When I was tuning my amp, I figured out that the 2 bow and 2 rear seats where on the front two channels of the amp and the swim platform and tower bar speakers were on the 2 rear channels.

    Don't have a wiring schematic (although that would be great to see), just figured this out by moving the fader and balance sliders in Connext.

    You are correct - I missed the rear seat speakers. So each set of 4 speakers is splitting 70 watts RMS? Seems low.

    Sorry, how do you get 70? I thought the HU was 200 watts and the amp was as well

    I got that info here: https://www.polkaudio.com/products/pa-d50005
    From what I see our units are not wired bridged so that would be 70 watts RMS.

    I know enough to be dangerous so if I've got what you're saying is that even though the HU is 200 watts, since all the speakers are being driven by the amp, we're not getting any power from the HU?

    I guess I need to see the wiring diagram. I thought all our speakers were being driven by the amp. I didn't even think about the head unit (Connext).
    Anyone know?

    Anybody have a wiring diagram for the stereo? Google has failed me and I have another 5000.5 on the way. Thanks!
