Default Massively revamped boat stereo… :D

Got tired of going to “party cove” and getting outdone. So the girlfriend and I spent the weekend doing a little stereo overhaul
2-3 way Bazooka 6x9 rated at 80 watts RMS
2-2 way Bazooka 6.5 rated at 80 watts RMS
2- Audiobahn Immortal 12’s rated at 2000 watts RMS each
1-DB Drive PLATNIUM SERIES CLASS AB AMPLIFIER (PA475) 4 channel @ 75 conservative watts per 4 channels.. for the 6x9 & 6.5’s
1- DB DRIVE PD2000.1 PLATINUM SERIES CLASS D 2000 WATT MONO with remote gain for the 2 -12’s
2- Caterpillar D4 Battery - DES 12 Volt rated at 200 amp hours each. I'm told by reliable sources they are the equivalent of about 3 yellow tops EACH

Guess the pics tell the rest…. Just thought I’d share. The wood and fiberglass reinforced wells in the foot area are about 2.5/3 cubic feet each and I never used them because they suck to get at. After the 12’s are fully installed the removable covers will be sealed.

I Still have 1 more 12 to install and the covers to protect….then to wire the mess up.





Before shot, look at the walk through....

Darren did you say something? I can't hear a bloody thing, someone is blasting music

Nice install but aren't the speakers shown in the last few shots in a kick zone? i.e. folks can accidently kick then when moving around the boat.

Good observation and good question…. Yes they are and I considered that.



Please reference the extremely heavy duty billet aluminum cover with rounded edges, to be easier on the toes
If I got a completely vertical shot of that area you wouldn’t be able to see the 12’s at all, the padding in that area just above deflects your leg away from the sub, but in case that’s not enough the ¼ inch thick aluminum cover should do the rest . The smaller 4 inch black thing is just a port; they can kick that as much as they want

Nice, hope it works out as you planned.

BTY: where are you mounting that massive battery? Hope you can find a spot that won't through off your trim.

I considered that as well.. that battery is a monster.
The subs weigh 70 lbs each = 140 in the front
The battery weighs 151 in the starboard rear….. I also have (and have had) 2 group 29 deep cycles on the port side. The entire boat may sit a little lower but I’m hoping it’ll come on plane about the same.

Sounds like you have balanced out the weight distribution pretty well, just remember to deduct this from you total weight carrying capacity when inviting friends aboard and their gear.
Don't let those subs go to your head or he next project you'll be posting is how to reinforce the boats elements, windshield , seats, ... ;-)

The fish below might not like it either.

Maybe you can use the low frequency sounds waves to break ice ;-)

"The fish below might not like it either."

Funny you say that.. I fish the Missouri river often and I can't tell you how many times we have gone an hour or more with no bites, being absolutely quiet and and trying to get some hard core fishing done.

After a while we say the heck with it and crack open some beers and turn up the tunes... It NEVER fails, fish ON!
