    • Year: 2008 Brand: Malibu Model / Trim: VLX Cost: $3500+ DIY or Professional Install: I installed it / created it Installation Shop: We did it Sound Project Components: Upgraded Amps, Upgraded Cabin Speakers, Upgraded Tower Speakers, Upgraded Subwoofer / Box

    I had just bought a Rockford Fosgate setup but didn't like how hot the amps got or how limited the throw was behind the boat.  Switched over to a WetSound setup.  Came out awesome. I did a video on it.  Better than photos.  

    What I used I put on this boat:
    4 Rev 10 tower speakers.
    8 Rev 6 speakers around the boat with LED 
    WT420 EQ 
    Syn 6 - Boat
    Syn 2 - Subs
    Syn 4 - Tower 

    We were having a problem with the throw of our Rockford system behind the boat.  Inside the boat people were getting blasted and inside.  The amps would get super hot and the inside of the hull would get warm.  It sucked because I only had the RF system for a few runs.  I didn't think the Revs would fit on the tower but they do with the extension bracket.  The Revs are great but not the cheapest in the world.  The sound is crazy good.  I have another video that I'll put in the comments that shows the throw.  It's unedited.  

    LED: I was able to tie the LED lights from the speakers into the lights on the boat.  The LEDs are only on when the interior lights come on.  

    TUNING:  The amps are easy to tune but they need to be tuned on the lake.  What you tune in your garage doesn't translate to a boat with an engine running.  The amps don't get hot at all, regardless of how hard you push them.  This is the best of the best IMO.

    Thanks.  I wasn't sure if I wanted to do it because I just bought the RF system.  My wife thought I was crazy.  Now she digs it.  lol. That's her in the boat.
