    Default Stereo Upgrade

    I am done screwing around with trying to make this kenwood sound good.

    Anybody put together a nice system for their craft? Not looking to break any windows. just good tight sound for evening cruises and enough power to show the kids on the lake that this old man has a little something.

    I completely removed everything from the boat. I found everything on ebay. First I ask what you are asking and got the answer you are looking for.
    1. First I purchased a new Kenwood HU The new one that I have has 3 RCA Outputs. It also works with the existing remotes I have.
    2. I Removed all the kenwood speakers. I replaced them with Polk Audio DB651 speakers
    3. I purchased a 10" Boston Acoustic G3 Sub and an encloser for www.audioformz.com
    4. I purchased a kicker MX700.5 for the cabin speakers and the sub.

    Let me tell you. I get lots of compliments on the sound. I also have tower speakers 4 MB Quart 6.5" They are powered by a Kicker MX350.4 amp. I have pictures of the install in my profile. Also, I ran all new speaker wire to the speakers.

    p.s. Sometimes www.crutchfield.com has the Polk audio on sale. Buy one at full price and get the second one at half price.
    Tazz 07' Moomba LSV --Kicker Marine Amps (MX700.5 & MX350.4) 6 polk DB651 speakers, 4 MB Quartz Marine Speakers, 10" Boston Acoustic Sub, Z-5 Cargo Rack, Custom Speaker/Light Bar, modified ballast system, Custom LED Rings

    For the budget minded:

    This one is very reasonable and has great inputs and three pairs of preamp outs. I replaced the 9 year old Kenwood with it. Very happy. Don't know anything about the speakers that came with it but you can get the unit without them.

    I also ran a tube from the cupholder drain to the fresh-air tubing to keep my amps from getting wet, since SC put that open cupholder over the top of the amps when they built the boat.
    interested to see where you put all of those amps... any pics?
