Alpine Head unit/ wireless remote
4 channel Xplod 200 watt
2 channel 250 watt

2 Pionneer tweeters
2 JL tweeters
4 6 1/2 Sonys
2 8 inch Bazooka Tubes

Sounds really good in the boat, but sound does not carry more than 2 or 3 boats when rafting.

Where and how are you guys mounting your subs? I have a couple of 10" kickers I need to mount and I have heard to many different stories on how to mount them from car stereo guys. I need input fom boat people.

I also will be installing:
2 Channel 350W Kenwood Amp
4 Channel 500W Rockford Fosgate Amp
Already in the boat:
Clairion Marine CD Player
6 - 5 1/2" 100W Clarion Speakers

Any advice on how to hook up and mount this would be helpful!

Thanks to reading ALLOT of posts on the subjet here at OSO and some help from FWK (Forrest), I am really happy with my system:

Sony CD unit (somthin' -660 me thinks)
Access Technologies wireless remote
4 - Babbs 6X9s
2 - Infinity Perfect 10s in sealed boxes built into my back seat
Sony Xplode 4 channel XM475 running the Babbs
MTX Thunder 6500D running the Infinities

Here's a shot of my back seat before upholstery. The subs have sealed boxes (glassed on the inside) and face out the sides and the 6X9s face out the front. I lost some storage room, but I also changed out my 20 gallon freshwater tank for a 6 gallon.

If you can hear the stereo you aint runnin hard enough! If you want to sit and listen to the music you should buy a pontoon boat and have a generator and a home stereo, that kicks the **** out of 12 volt crap any day!!!!

I never saw the stereo in Kangaroo Rat but the shop taht did the install posted some of their invoices for it.
They had 1,396.5 hours (not dollars but labor hours) of labor in it.
I can't imagine what the whole system cost was.

I dont have anything in my Wellcraft yet. But I had 1 Boston Pro sub glased into the bow of my Mastercraft the big ADS 6 chanel amp Audio Control electronic X-over and 2 sets of Hart 6 1/2 componet mids and 4 tweeters to match. It was loud enoph to hear it clearly over the exhaust at 22mph and at the end of a 35' rope. Charlie

For me indy and dyno sum it up perfectly
If I want sounds other than that of a happy motor I take along
a small Sony third world briefcase.Environment's too harsh on even a nice sound system and I like to keep the boat on a diet.. some of those systems must weigh as much as another small block !
ps I can always just listen to the sounds emanating from all the grasshopper's Sea Rays in the distance.. not that it's my kind of music
