    FYI, none of them do. Im a member of a dozen or so forums, and they all experience spammers from time to time. Most forum Mods do this as a hobby/part time gig, as they have real jobs. So monitoring the site at every single moment, is hard. So spammers are going to get in, and make posts.
  2. Remove the speaker. Odds are the brand and model are on a sticker on the back. Then, remove another speaker and swap them over to each other spot. If the speaker is bad, it wont play on the other speaker's wires. If the issue upstream, then the previously working speaker wont play in the suspect spot. Ive found that 2019, 2020 and 2021 are still using the Panasonic speaker with the white/black grill with the chaparral logo.
  3. What size it too small and too big?
  4. Yeah, $450 sound like just a transom remote.
  5. Its called Fresh Air Exhaust and is available aftermarket as well as OEM on many tow boats. It works at surf speeds, like 10+, but not at no-wake/idle or sitting still.
  6. 26W rms x 4 @ 4 ohm. Peak numbers are unrealistic. Good for a salon speaker, but a but light for my liking with an open cabin speaker.
  7. Based on this, you would want a decent pair of horn loaded compression driver tower speakers in the 8" or larger size and able to handle some decent wattage. So get that wattage with the selected amp, you'd want to bridge each speaker across 2 chnls each. So right there, you taken up half the amp. For the woofer, you'd again want to bridge it across 2 chnls, using the proper impedance woofer of course. This leaves you 2 chnl for one or two pair of cabin speakers. With only one pair of cabin speakers, 3/4 of the amp chnls are running ta their minimum impedance. Add in a 2nd pair of cabin speakers and now all 8 chnls are at their minimum impedance. This means the amp is running pedal to the metal. This is why 2 second amp would be a suggestion to consider. Split the load across 2 amps. If sticking with the Fusion Signature series, id suggest the 5 chnl and the 4 chnl.
  8. This is a peak number used by the marketing dept. Reality, the RMS is 1120 with all 8 chnls @ 2 ohm. If this was the case, first thing id do is add another amp and split the load up. As to the current draw, I doubt you would see this amp spike above 60A. IMO, Id rather build a solid 2-bank setup and use shore-charging for the house bank once the boat is back in its home. You'll get more mileage then upgrading the alternator. With that said, whats the age and hours on the alternator?
  9. If the bluetooth plugged into the AUX is not cutting it for you, then yes, your options is to place the head unit and remotes. Clarion I believe, still produces a rectangle remote for OEM applications, and will be compatible with the current Clarion units such as the M608 or M508. Requires updating the remote extension cable as well.
  10. Thats a wired slave remote. The main stereo media head unit is where the integrated bluetooth receiver is. With that said, if you upgrade the head unit, you would want to also upgrade the remotes.
  11. If you have wet cell batteries, I highly suggest a proper size battery tray or box in order to contain any spillage or boil over.
  12. If the Wet Sounds TC3-SXM fits, then the "X" mount pods should also. Just note, those only fit Wet Sounds Rev and Icon series pods. Cant be used with any other models or brands
  13. Can you post a pic of the spot, with some scale? There are some speakers that may be designed to bolt right up to the spot.
  14. You have a lack of wattage and lack of tuning flexibility issue. You have a speaker with a rating (thermal power handling of 160W. This likely puts their RMS in the 80W range. You have a head unit rated at 20W rms and 50W peak. IMO, you need a quality external amp.
