    Default Jet boat Stereos

    I just bought all of the components for my stereo (2-12" subs, 2 amps, 6x9's, and some 5.5"s). I have a 20 Carrera Eclipse and if any of you know about these...there's not much room to play with. I was hoping to get some pics and some advise on how and where you all are setting your stereo systems up.

    Sounds like a lot of pricey equipment, not to much room in a 20ft I have a standard Cd deck 2 6" speakers its plenty but its hardly ever on. My advice take all that crap back put that money in your motor, because at the sand bar the wake board boats will have their music on so loud you will never hear yours.

    There are some pretty healthy 6X9's available these days, you might wanna check out Kenwood's line, I am almost positive it was Kenwood. i will check...i was thinking about adding another batt. and a Sirius dock to the boat this year...i am liking floating more these days vs. trying to go fast, comparing the float time vs. driving time, there is much more time spent floating with the family that ive noticed in the past season, vs. driving, so i would rather play the Johnas brothers with my daughter vs. nothing! lol
    Im laughing as im typing and can hardly get it out! lol
    later!

    If you have the room I would recomend upgrading the 5.5s to 6.5s in a boat the bigger the speaker the better. its not like a car where you are filling an enclosed room with sound. Post up some pics of your interior and I can give you some advice on locations. I wouldnt listen to all the naysayers as you have a pretty common setup and if installed correctly will be very enjoyable.

    You can also check out the Al&eds section on riverdavesplace.com for ideas, they ahve posted a bunch of pictures there

    I have a cheap 10" sub in a box with a 4 channel amp mounted to it under the bow and 2 6x9 MB Quart Marine speakers in boxes along the side of the front seats. I use an ipod through the RCA input of the amp, instead of a actual headunit. There's enough slack in the wires to lift the boxes up and put them on top on the boat when parked. I also added a second battery. System sounds decent, fairly inexpensive, and easily removable for extra security. Sorry no pics. Boats in pieces and in storage, plus its raining. Good luck with the install.

    I've contemplated a stereo, I have a pioneer cd player laying around. I can't figure out where to put it. Anyone have any pics of where/how they mounted there decks? I guess I may have to join the 21st century and invest in an ipod.

    That is a very true statement. I have only one 10" sub w/600w in my truck and it sounds great. I bought the two 10's and put 800w to them and wasn't really impressed. The sound has nothing to resonate (sp?) from.

    My boat came with this billet stereo cover with a oring sealed cover, I think CP sells them. I upgraded the receiver to a high end Sony with an Ipod hookup
    I have 2 10" subs mounted the the bulkhead just forward of the dash, the way the bulkheads are in my 21
    it makes a box on each side so I get great bass.
    I have a 400W alpine amp powering the 10's
    and I have a 200W amp powering 2 6X9's and 2 6" Sonys mounted in the gunnel covers.

    High End and Sony are 2 words that don't go together in HU's.

    What most people forget or don't know. Its not all in the Eqt. You have or Buy. It's the install. If you buy a Sub go with the Recommendations on Cu ft for Ported or Sealed. The common term is "Oh it will be OK" Your $300 Sub will get beat out by a $100 dollar sub that is tuned.

    Back when i was in Car audio I saw Horrific installs. Subs that were in boxes to big or subs that were Wired wrong. 80% of a good system is in the install the other 20% is the eqt.

    Actually the mobile ES decks were pretty good I knew quite a few people competing on them and did pretty well. The older Sony stuff was pretty good too. Xplod....now thats a different story

    Ok the higher $$ Sony, its in a boat that might get WET
    and I'm not trying to win a sound Competition
    Just some good tunes while I'm floating.
    and I agree I've seen some horrific installs with some
    high dollar equipment that sounded like CHIT.
