    Newbie here! Sound system question

    No No No! Speakers and amp turn-on are not the same wire. Turn-on is blue or blue/white and no other color. Speakers are Gray, White, green and Purple, no other color. You need to correct this before you blow something in the head,like its internal amp if it is indeed a speaker lead you are connected to. Head unit wire colors have been standardized for a couple decades. Just google head unit wire harness colors and you will get a layout.

    Newbie here! Sound system question

    Where you buy something should actually be your first line of support. Like when buying a new Chaparral, would you call the factory for questions? Factory support can be a bonus. With that said, you would want to know the coil configuration of the two woofers, prior to choosing an amp. Fusion's (or anyone's) factory support wont be much help, if you go with the wrong replacement amp and then have an issue upon installation.

    Kicker KM654 in-boat speakers. Add an "L" if you want the LED lighting Kicker KM10 woofer if there is a good spot for a woofer in an enclosure or KMA10 if not. Get the 2 ohm version either way Kicker KMXA8005 amp to drive it all. Comes with ShocWave wireless sub level controller. A more premium system would be the Wet Sounds Revo-6 in-boats. 8 grill choices and LEDs are included Revo-10 HP for an enclosure or FA version for no enclosure Syn-DX6 amp.

    PSA: Buy the correct batteries for your boat!

    going from a 24 to a 31 could be around 60% more battery storage capacity. That IS more load on a charger and alternator any way you slice. I would not worry about the alternator charging an AGM, it does not know the difference.

    A larger battery requires a larger box or tray they a group 24

    I would not rotate a 2 bank, 3 battery setup, where 2 make up the house bank and one is the main cranking, heres why. Once you wire two together in one bank, they become one. They discharge and recharge as one unit. They will share a similar internal resistance. Now take that one single battery thats been used by itself in a completely different manor, with completely different discharge and recharge cycles. Swap it with one of the paired batteries and you now have 2 batteries at vastly different stages of their life, different internal resistance, trying to work as one. Depending on how your house bank gets used, moving one of them to a cranking battery seems to me, to open you up to a failed cranking battery that more likely to happen then with retaining the battery that started its life as that main cranking.

    Wet Sounds feedback from Electric Steering Pump

    It depends on where and how the noise is getting into the signal path. IF ifs getting through the RCA, it might require installing a better quality RCA. Regardless of whether its a coax or twisted type, I would expect there to be some shielding. Single ended coax type naturally have that copper woven shield, but even the higher grade double ended twisted pair, have a 3rd wire for shielding anyway. This is why isolating the noise first, and then dropping in a test patch cable or speaker wire, before trying a "fix".

    Wet Sounds feedback from Electric Steering Pump

    I would first look at the amp settings for the in-boats. If set to hi-pass, switch them to full-pass or off, depending on the amp's nomenclature. What I would be looking for here is if I can get the unwanted noise out of all the amp driven speakers. This tells us the noise is coming in pre-amp. If we can only get the noise from the woofer, then its coming in on the output wire between the amp and woofer, or its leaking in on the woofer's RCA (if its fed with a dedicated pair of RCA). If its system wide, id look closer at the head and amp B+ and B- power cables. if its leaking in on the RCA, you may need to reroute them. If it seems to leak into the woofer's speaker cable post amp, reroute that. You can do a test reroute by simply dropping an RCA or speaker wire right from the head to the amp or from the amp to the speaker, rather then fully installed.

    Advice on Battery Charger for winter trickling?

    I would not pull them. Make use of the charger. Turn everything off that does not need to be on, and relax through the off season.

    Correct battery switch position.

    With no other info regarding use of the boat, ill answer with the context of the charger. OFF is the best position for the main switch when charging, as the charger leads should be connected to the battery side of the switch.

    Advice on Battery Charger for winter trickling?

    if its pulled and stored in moderate temps with a full charge, then no, you will not need to charge them over the layup. Just recharge them prior to returning to service. Will it hurt to give them a little refresh during the off season? No.

    dont know about his expert status, but he's correct. No worries with a modern battery sitting on a concrete floor.

    Advice on Battery Charger for winter trickling?

    Honestly, a little topping off once or twice during your layup is fine, if they are stored fully charged, they will not need any maintaining. they will survive just fine in a basement. For a small device, I like the CTek chargers. Just dont charge next to a gas hot water heater, etc.

    Adding speakers to tower

    Since most amps are 2 ohm stable and 4 ohm marine speakers are the norm, I would not expect to find an impedance issue. However, my concern with pairing tower speakers with other speakers somewhere in the boat, is more about being user friendly. When paired on amps chnl with another pair of speakers, those other speakers are going to be playing at the same volume setting as you are wanting to play the towers. Not good when you want to hear the tower speakers while floating behind the boat and the baby is napping down in the salon, for example. Having the tower speakers on their own dedicated amp chnls, can give you some flexibility in how its used.
