The Z-5 is actually off a Supra 22 Worlds Edition. Swivel racks are of course a new option for 2010 and are made by Roswell. Thanks to David (owner), Shane, and Vic of Earmark Marine for my stereo system. The system is made up of: 4 Bullet Hollow Point 770, 2 JL Audio G1300 monoblock amps for the tower, 1 JL Audio G6600 for cabin and sub, JL Audio 10" sub in custom enclosure (no free air for me), 6 Bullet Hollow Point 6.5" cabin speakers, HSE Revolution volume control, Wetsounds 420 EQ, ProMariner dual bank charger, Deka group 31 batteries, ipod adaptor/holder. The system is super clean and attention to detail on the install exceeded my expectations. Before the install, David wrote up the entire build/install on paper down to the foot of wire and every connector. After I left my boat they said they would call if any increase in price was needed. When I picked up my boat it was the exact price as quoted. They even pre-wired the tower for LED light rings for only the cost of the wire since they would be doing the tower speakers anyways. I thought this was a great suggestion by David considering labor cost later if I decided to add lights.

This is probably a dumb question. But what is the point of the proMariner dule bank charger?

It's just an onboard 20amp charger that's wire to the batteries. All you have to do is just plug an extension cord to an outlet mounted in the boat. I chose the v-drive locker since it's easy to access from the side. Alot of people just use Battery Tenders. I personally don't think they have the ability to really charge a drained battery but they can maintain a topped off battery.

System Looks realy nice man. I like the additions you chose. Are the interiors HLCDs also? You said they were hollow points so are they regular hollow point speakers?

Anyhow looks great bet tyou cant wait to get on the water. I have been in El Paso Since Friday visiting some of Claudias side of the family and the weather has been super nice, no boat and no water though LOL.

Realy jonzing to hit the water after going out with Stretch. Cant wait to get home and dust off my surf board LOL. Besides i need to lose a few lbs more after vacation living, you know eat all the bad foods and drink beer everynight LOL.

The cabin speakers are just regular speakers. I can't believe how much bass comes out of them. I love the Wetsounds EQ. So easy to turn up or down the tower speakers.

Exactly. I've only turned it up to just over half and can barely stand it. The tower speakers are crazy loud but with the 420 it's easy to set them where you want. The inside speakers are most impressive with how much bass they produce. I initially bought the Polk db651 but the Hollow Points went on sale and I sold the Polks to a buddy of mine. I like the sub volume on the 420 as well. I can't say enough how impressed I am with Earmark Marine with David's advice/explanation on equipment selection. Vic, the installer, did an incredible job and gave me a detailed explanation on the system when I arrived. Thanks to Shane for emailing me pictures as the install was taking place since I live 3hrs away. If anyone lives within half a days drive of Dallas, it's worth the drive to have Earmark do your system. Next season I plan on getting stupid with some LED lights.

I believe they are 14ft cables around the bow.
