WS-220-BT install location

Recommended Posts

Can someone please send some photos of their installed WS-420 or 220 BT.  I am getting one installed on my 16VLX and want to get some ideas.

Thanks!  I like the look with the trim plate.  Didn't see a trim plate for the 220 on WS site.

I copied this idea from someone.  I know I would  be constantly battling kids monkeying with the knobs if it was exposed.

I fiddle with the knobs too much between sets to want them completely tucked away like that.  It would stay protected there though.

They offer an under dash billet mount for the 220 and 420BT, similar to the 420SQ but without the hole for the BT-VC. With the larger face and mounting screw holes, the 220 and 420 BT do not need the flush mount trim plate that the SQ does.

Looking at adding a 420 myself... This is super clean. well done!

I can't see hanging it under the dash like a CB in an old F-150 ;)

I hung my under the dash if you look at that thread I linked.   Different strokes for different folks, but I think the install came out clean using the WS mount.    I personally mess with the zone knobs too much and although I like the look of it in the glovebox, I'd find it more difficult to operate while underway.   Also, my wife will often reach over from the passenger seat and turn the sport knob up or down while I'm focused on driving.  I could see her doing the same on the WS-420 as she acts as the DJ.  The glove box wouldn't allow that option either.   No right or wrong way here - I'm just pointing out the considerations I took in my install.

Same here (Exile not WS though).

Mine is in the glove box, wouldn't recommend putting it there. I didn't realize I would be adjusting it so much when I decided to put it there.

Sorry didn't mean to offend. A couple of clean looking installs here. I have seen some that are not to that level that I was joking about.

For reference NCSurfing's pic is on a newer boat where that panel is at the drivers right hand, replacing the drybox, not in the traditional glovebox.

No offense taken.  I was just giving my rationale for locating where I did.
