Finished up amp board


Recommended Posts

I decided to remove the Rockford Fosgate amps that came with my 2012 23LSV. I added four Rev10's on the tower and kept the interior speakers and sub stock. I plan on adding a new sub box and sub next year cause the factory one in not too good. I installed everything and because they were replacing my motor (another post) I decided to add fans and an on off switch for the fans. I also soldered all the ends so when I tightened down on the connectors I had a solid connection. I also cleaned up the mess under the board a bit. I have two HD600.4's bridged to push the four Rev's and the 900.5 runs the interior and sub. The amps were getting very hot but not enough to ever go into thermal protection mode prior to the fans. I am curious to see if the fans help at all.

Has anyone every installed fans for their JL HD amps?

Nice - I looked at that JL amp but went with the single Sinister instead. My 4xRev10 have clipped once when I was running the tower for a few hours in a row, but I opened the seat bolster and let the amp cool for a few minutes and it ran great the rest of the day. It was about 100 that day on the Delta.

The boat is a 2012 Wakesetter 23LSV and in the compartment behind the observers seat on the outer side the factory provides this board that is made out of Starboard. I moved the head unit up a bit removed the amplifiers that came with the boat and installed what you see above.

Looks great and great equipment choice. You did not need to add those fans but I guess it can't hurt.

Audiocontrol Matrix is the bomb!!!!!!!!

What does that Matrix do exactly?

It is a line driver and takes the rca voltage from the deck and bumps it to about 13volts. This provides a strong signal to the amplifiers and allows them to run more efficiently. Most decks only supply 1.5 or so volts out of the rca's.
