    Default Installed a new sound system in the boat

    Alpine deck with wireless remote
    2 pdx amps (ran 1/0 wire)
    4 jl 7.7 speakers
    2 mb quarts (the older German made quality ones)
    2 10 inch sub
    New Dana battery box 27
    Battery switch

    Big job but turned out pretty nice. Not a big stereo like rollbar boats but sounds clean and loud. Will post pics soon.

    Ready for a run.

    Thanks. Need to get it in the water as the sound will change. Then I can do some fine tuning. The marine JL 7.7's are amazing. Highly reccomend them.

    The 24's aren't enough because you run big power. Yes, I am running 2 27's. The boat originally had a 24 in a 27 box. I replaced the 24 with an Interstate 27 and added a second 27 series and Dana battery box. Intertstate carries 2 types of RV/Deep cycle 27's. I chose the one with higher capacity. Both batteries are run through Blue Sea battery switch. It was originally run with #2 battery cables. I upgraded to 1/0 battery cables and 1/0 amp kit to a distribution block and then #4 to the amps. Overkill but a nice platform for upgrades later.

    Next I am going to build/run a set of leads fix mounted on the boat with a forklift style plug that will attach to a set up jumper cables. I built a set on the 22 Daytona and served me well.

    Making me laugh but I thought the same thing. Probably added 110 lbs with new stereo and battery. However, I changed my lifestyle and have lost 57 lbs. since Dec. 1, 2010 with many more to go. Hope to see you and the family soon.

    Charlie,

    Thanks for the kind words. Feel great. Can't wait for the next 57. Building a better me.

    We bailed on St. Patricks Day due to weather. Maybe we could get a weekend run together? Take care.
