    Default tower control

    What are you guys using ???

    my sub amp has a cord and dial so I can turn it down when needed I really would like to be able to do the same with the tower speakers also

    Are the pac lc1's the only one out there

    I know kicker has the dual zone but don't really need dual since the sub already has one built in

    Dual control is nice for controlling both the cabin and the tower independently. The Pac LC1's like you mentioned are one option. An EQ works nicely for me and gives ipod connectivity/control from the helm. Kicker and JL both have controllers as well.

    Exactly!!! If you want a great system you should give yourself the tools to easily control it. Plus I actually use the PA the WS420 has that no other offers.

    I hope the next generation ws420 allows for independent sub control. That's what kept me away.

    I just installed the JL audio CL-RLC. Unlike the lc1 which is passive, the JL boosts the preamp signal to a healthy 7.5V. It has better specs than the kicker dual control as well.

    I'll second that. The current WS420 allows plenty of control over the sub unless you're a basshead that wants to only thump on your boat

    Man if I ever heard someone playing bass only I'd laugh so hard!

    No, what I'm talking about is running tower speakers and sub with no cabin speakers. When I was looking at EQs this was something the WS420 couldn't handle without some creative use of PAC controllers.

    Hmmm, when would you need tower and sub with no cabins? Just asking.
