If you suspect that there is a chance of water damage then I would take a look inside the amplifier myself. This would save you the cost of shipping and a diagnostic fee on something so obvious to...
I hate to see an amplifier replaced without knowing exactly what is wrong. Sometimes it is a $10 transistor and a flat rate of $125 total to fix. Other times it's not worth repairing.
At this point take the same process-of-elimination approach with the 700 amp as you did with the 250 amp.
I'm not sure, but because the 700 is a hybrid with a Class D mono-channel and a Class AB...
Disconnect all speakers wires and speakers plus both RCAs. Use a temporary speaker and wire substitute of proven origin on one channel only.

Any chance of water damage?
Consult your amplifier owners manuals.
But I am guessing that any flashing light is a sign of a problem. A red light or flashing red light could indicate a protection...
So if the HU is powering up, lit up, and responding to commands per the display read-out, then it would appear at first glance that the HU is fully functional.
Since you have two amplifiers with...

Actually I was leading up to the multiple benefits of a strobe light.

I was absolutely certain that you would know. I'm glad I asked.

So Phil, if I wire two AC light bulbs with one in reverse polarity will I have total darkness if I am standing an equal distance from both light bulbs?
You can do it 'all' for $1000 but IMO the results would be disappointing and there is a good chance much of that gear would end up in the classifieds next season. You could easily spend $1000, or...

No. It is not at all common for that amplifier to have an issue. While a failed amplifier is possible, usually when an amplifier is fried it goes into protect mode. So back to the diagnostic steps to...

You have to begin the process of isolating exactly where in the signal path the problem is originating from.
So begin by reversing the EQ in-boat and tower zones via the RCAs.
Check the secureness...

Marine motors, versus automotive engines, typically have a lot thicker paint on them to combat corrosion. Kind of odd since automotive engines seem to be more exposed than an inboard. But I guess...
That would be a cover fašade that conceals the sub enclosure.
You can't have just a flat panel because a) that type of woofer is dependent on the air spring of the sealed enclosure for damping and...
I don't see an issue. Certainly not with the interior contacts.
There is lots of shock and vibration in a towboat beyond the subwoofer.
The Perko should have no more than three HD terminations on...
It's not a marine subwoofer and I wouldn't run it in a ported box in a coastal situation. Beyond that, the exterior materials used (poly, butyl) are extremely rugged and fine for a long-term...

A manufacturer cannot void a warranty merely because the vehicle/craft was customized or accessories were added. Read the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act enacted in 1975. Now if they can prove exactly why...

Another part of this, and maybe not a major issue, is that the subwoofer cannot project out of the boat and at surf range. The fullness that low bass adds does contribute to your sense of volume.
06-30-2015, 10:11 AM
I'm confident you already have plenty of power and plenty of speaker for surfing. Yes, you can add more speakers but that would also mean adding a second amplifier.
This is either an...

When stored outdoors or even in the end slip of a boathouse, water from a very hard wind driven horizontal rain has been known to get under a cover and go everywhere.

Even conformal-coated marine electronics are not waterproof. They are resistant to salt air. They are not potted and most above-the-board components are not protected.
You can do a lot of damage to...
Makes you wonder if it is coincidence that the boat is parked in front of a place that does welding.
Not exactly accurate. Wetsounds did that particular Tige' boat in-house. An installer or two that helped may have worked at Mobile Innovations for a period. Mobile Innovations may be very capable but...
There was a long and in-depth discussion about that speaker review on another forum. It's totally bogus. They arrived at their conclusions by no more than the printed and on-line info available from...
I agree with the above statement that Odin with Earmark Marine is a great source as an authorized on-line Wetsounds dealer. His knowledge of audio, fabrication and system tuning is incredible and...
