    Default Exile in the 2012 LSV

    On my list of winter projects was to give the boat an upper augmentation (Exile) and a tramp stamp (FAE). After 2 Saturdays, 1 Sunday, about 5 Amazon orders, countless trips to Lowes, and a case of beer (by my best guess), the audio portion is now 90% complete. Still outstanding are the sub enclosure, the ZLD install, amp tuning, and rotating my speaker grills. ZLD should be easy; sub work will be a little more involved, but all in all not bad. I thought I would post pictures of my install journey.


    All the electrical goodies on the bench:



    Here I'm measuring the gap of the supports so I know how much room I have on the back of my amp rack:



    Once I have my measurements, I sketch out my amp rack layout:



    Dry fitting the amp rack to make sure it will fit properly:

    Back of the board with wiring. Yes it will suck if I ever blow a fuse, but it's all out of the way:



    Amp rack installed running off of 2 GC Batteries. I had to flip the order of the ACR and the switch to better fit the existing wire runs:



    Tower wires run. There are wires going up both sides of the tower. The port side is only feeding the lower speaker. On the starboard side, the main 4 conductor feed line comes up and out of the pre-existing grommet. At that point a line is run to each of the remaining 3 speakers (1 port, 2 starboard). Everything on the starboard side terminates using the larger pre-existing hole.



    And here is the final completed view from the rear:



    Maybe next weekend I'll get to tackle the FAE. Itís been sitting by the front door for about 3 weeks.

    Overall it sounds great, although I wasn't going to put the system through its paces at 7pm on a Sunday night in front of my house

    The neighbors were only part of it. The other part was my wife telling me I'd spent enough time working on the boat for the weekend and we needed to get the kids to bed. Although I don't think she said it that nice.
