New Trailer/Audio setup for Summer 2014

Recommended Posts

I promised so many of you pictures, so here are a few. Boat is a 2004 Malibu 23' XTI

New for 2014 is a California Trailer Works custom painted "Malibu Red" trailer with full LED lighting package and 15" wheels

I also added 2 additional double can speakers and rear facing "flood" lights for nighttime picnics etc. I took the existing 2 double cans and flipped them upside down, facing to the rear for a total of 4 double cans, or 8 speakers.

Also added a new sony head unit with integrated bluetooth, and Sirius XM as up here we don't get a lot of cell service for Pandora on boats.

Welcome all feedback, and i will be taking more pictures tomorrow.

Everything looks nice. Only concern I might have is will the rope hit the top speakers?

Looks great! You should be able to drown out all the Backstreet Boys playing on all the other boats without a problem.

The orange tie downs have since been replaced with retractable Black clips. Also we had to add a ton of additional lighting to the side of the trailer as I have a Range Rover and it wasn't "recognizing" a trailer since the LED's pull such low wattage. Its all good now, the last picture you can see some incandescence on the side rails to add power load.

That could have been corrected by simply adding a resistor into the wiring.

Why didn't you just go with 1 or two pair of higher end speakers (Wet Sounds, Exile, JL, etc.) vs so many of those speakers?

We had no idea about the resistor option until it was too late. It actually look pretty cool at night so no complaints here.

As far as the speakers go, I actually really like the look of all of them. I think it's just on the Good side of the overkill border :)
