    Newbie - battery / start up issue

    A failing cable connection or starter can emulate a dead battery.

    H20 Wake Tower Speakers ??

    Tower speakers will project music for your swimmers behind the boat and add to the interior volume. A quality speaker with good power and a proper tune, will add to the sound quality. Id consider some form of zone volume control. This will allow you to adjust the level of the tower and in-boats, independently. Now, this will require that the in-boats and tower speakers are externally amped and on on different chnls. Say you have 2 pair in-boats and add a pair of tower, a 4 chnl amp is the perfect. 3 pair of in-boats and add towers, 6 chnl is the way to go. Now, if you really want to increase sound quality, consider adding a mild 10" woofer. Lots of missing program material below the range of small speakers.

    H20 Wake Tower Speakers ??

    For party-cove type listening, I would suggest at least a single pair of 8" coaxial. Good volume, and better then sound quality over any number of smaller pods. For the primary goal of wake range projection for a rider in tow, at least an 8" or 9" Horn Loaded Compression Driver. A quality 8" or 9" HLCD can still sound good near field though. For the best of both worlds, max volume, projection and near field sound quality. Look to one of the 10" or 11" HLCD offerings. The added mid-bass surface area balances out the dominant compression tweeter for better sound quality. Great offering from both Kicker and Wet Sounds. Once the speaker option is chosen, then the best amp pairing can be made.

    Thanks for the add! Couple questions

    This is usually addressed with more speakers and more wattage. If there is no external amplifier, adding one can make a significant different in not only volume but clarity, especially at higher volumes. More speakers = more volume.

    Yep, Sony used to make solid stuff and JBL of the present is mostly trading on their name.

    More about a modern JBL v's old school sony then marine v's car amp.

    Add a battery: Update 3/11/19

    If 2ga was the proper gauge for the load at that length of cable, then yes, 4ga will be an issue. What was the estimated potential load of that cable?

    Any head unit upgrade, will likely force a transom remote and cable upgrade as well. Manufactures have a habit of changing the protocol, rendering older version obsolete. Evaluate the existing system. What works, whats inoperative. What features is the system lacking? Does the sound quality and volume meet your needs? System upgrades can be done in stages, but you need to have the vision, and lay the foundation first. Makes the future upgrades co easier and less time consuming.

    Experience with Surf Package?

    My 22ft v-drive wake boat would run low 40's and it had a mildly aggressive surf prop. 30+ is barefootin speed. Just note though, the hulls are way less efficient at those speeds compared to a planing hull, so full consumption will be more then a traditional bow rider.

    Marine Battery Sale

    No battery stand up to over charging. A we cell will boil down, expose the plates, and game over.

    Marine Battery Sale

    In an AGM, we really dont see a construction difference like we do between a wet cell cranking and deep cycle. Its actual a good thing to go up in CA. If going up in group-size, it only matters if the larger battery physically fits.

    Experience with Surf Package?

    Its all about the compromises. Do you want a boat that surfs ok and has a grill and a pooper, or do you want a surf machine that is big, seats 10+ comfortably, handles big lakes pretty good, tows tubes, wake boards and skis?

    @Water Dawg 6 While that is true with a traditional 1/2/BOTH switch, the switch/ACR the OP would be going with, would take care of that passively.

    Add a battery: Update 3/11/19

    During engine run time, and having the alternator supplying to one time of battery and into another type through an ACR/VSR, is not a concern, heres why? An alternator is not really "charging" the battery(s). Its job is to really just keep up with normal loads drawing on the system. These two different types of battery are not directly wired in parallel, just electrically in parallel through an ACR only when their is alternator voltage. Not enough time for one to effect the other, in any negative way. Actual shore charging is a different animal. We do not want to combine, or parallel a main and house bank, even if both are the same type. Why? Because they have been used in a manor that each has developed and little different internal resistance due to their different discharge/charge cycles. A group-29/31 deep cycle is not going to want to charge at the same rate as what a main cranking group-24, which is likely never cycled deep. I would not argue with this at all. Id even go with both wet cell. If the existing battery is 3+ years old or the age is unknown, id consider starting the new season with 2 fresh batteries of the same type. Although some of the promariners cannot accommodate a different profile on each bank, some of their chargers can handle both AGM and wet cell on the standard profile. You have to read close, but a standard size AGM will do just fine on the same profile of a wet cell. So a group-24 cranking wet cell on one bank and a group-24 AGM on the house bank, will charge just fine on the standard profile.If you have large output AGM, then change to the AGM profile. This would be a case where you would want AGM on both banks.
