    I also checked the prices for av cables on monoprice.com and was encouraged. I almost ordered some today but decided to wait till after Christmas. I'm sure I'll order a few new cables, etc. after I figure out what else I need.

    I dont know about yours but on our 2010 LSV the cables go under the floor in the ski locker area and up to the amp, literally 1 min per cable run, super easy

    How long of cables did you need to order? The 10 or 12 foot premium ones look pretty reasonable here:

    I have one of these and I don't have any background noise. It shouldn't have any background noise if it's tuned right. If you crank it up, you will hear some hizzing, but the directions specifically say not to over power the outputs in the directions of tuning. IMO its a nice cheap investment, built a little on the cheap side, but the $79 its worth it. I've gotten my money's worth out of mine. The microphone option is nice and being able to quiet you towers or in-boats is nice too. My first unit fried for some odd reason but Krypt replaced it at no additional cost.

    I have one in my boat, and for $79 bucks I am halfway considering buying a backup for just in case! I absolutely love it. One of the most utilized pieces on my boat.

    the kicker volume controls that run 2 zones look appealing.
    This unit controls all 3 zones in one package. Plus has a microphone.

    Cab, I have heard some people say the EQ creates noise but always heard it was fixed by grounding directly to battery. I ran mine last year grounded at the posts under the drivers helm. I didn't have any noise issues.

    I've been thrilled with the functionality of mine and for that price its a great mod.

    Alright, you guys talked me into it. Just ordered one.

    Kane, I am running those cables from monoprice and they work just fine. Not sure how long you will need but I suggest you make your own measurements rather than relying on someone else's data. How you route your cable and where the amps are located will make a difference.

    I just picked one up for that price. My clarion eq was starting to give me problems due to moisture ect. For that price I couldn't pass it up.

    Al, I thought you had the JL line drivers controlling the tower and in boats?
