Budget build complete in 90's skier

Recommended Posts

Let me start by saying , I know I will not be wining any sound contest or be the loudest on the lake . That was not the goal , If the budget was bottomless then other products would have been used. 

Now with that out of the way , I am very pleased with the all around sound that has came from the build . Does everything I wanted and then some extra. When I bought the boat last Oct . There was a blown 12 in the bow with no amp , single battery and 6.5 30rms alpines that sounded horrible . The build included add a 2nd deep cycle group 29, 300x1 class d punch , 600x4 class d prime , kick 6.5 tower package , kicker 4-6.5 inboats and a 10" ported sub . There has also been a sub bass knob added that i do not have a photo of . The last piece needed is a new head unit ; I am open to suggestions on this . Not really wanting an 420 eq , Have the tower speakers ran to the rear port on the amp and the inboats ran to the front port so i can fade the towers with the wiring ran this way. 

With everything all said and done, build cost came in around $1,100.00

Nice little set up!  Since you mention the word budget, how much do you have into it?

any input on how important it is for the head unit to be "marine" if the HU is going into a water proof case with a cover? 

 

case installed on my dash is like this but without the built in wires

Like a marine amp, a marine head-unit will have a comformal coated PCB, a sealed top chassis or at least a protective shield for water run off. Some of the higher end units has stainless chassis and some are completely sealed like a fusion or aquatic AV head unit. A case or cover may help with splash contact but may not help with the humid conditions we find in boats.

Your mileage may vary but I have had two non marine hu's in my boat since new and they have not experienced any issues.  Mine is located under the armrest. I changed the original to gain usb inputs but it is still perfectly fine.  

Nice work on the installation.  I just upgraded my stereo as well ...three amps and some tower speakers.
