Default What type of stereo system do you have in your boat??

When partying in the boat, I think you must have the bumpin system to liven up the parlay!!
Who else thinks this to be true?? What are you guys running for stereos??

I myself am running a moderate system for the boat. 600 watts 12 speakers...two 12" subs (PPI), two amps (PPI), two sets of seperates (MB Quart), two stock speakers (for the cabin), Clarion deck. Going to do some upgrades here shortly

Default Sony CDX-CA700X

I have a Sony CDX-CA700X with four round speakers and an X-Plod woofer.

It's not "the life of the party", but it works for me!

What does a guy who has been in the audio business for over 25 years do in his boat?
Here's mine:

1:Sony CDX-MP70 Am/Fm/CD
2:XM satellite radio
3riginal (back when they were really good sounding) Soundstream 4 ch Amp running 4 McIntosh componet speakers w/ external X-Overs.
4: Original Soundstream (D200) amp running a pair of Kicker 10" free air subs X-over at 84Hz
5: MA audio speakers in cabin. Soon to be swapped out w/ new ones.

All the speaker levels we calibrated with a DB meter. X-over freq were swept with spectrum analizer (sp?).

The system doesn't have that "ethnic" sound which I intensely dislike, but is more of an accurate sound.

'02 Cigarette Top Gun TS
'02 PQ 340
'00 PQ 280
'98 Scarab 22
'97 Baja Outlaw 20
