    Wave Chopper's Audio System (Preview and Tested)

    So here is a preview of my version of Wave Chopper Audio System.

    Time spent:
    Around 4 hours installing this. (Cos space is limited for tightening the bolts)

    Parts:
    I have a pair of waterproof speakers, mini amp controller and a 4Ah 12V Lead Battery (I don't want to drain the main battery)

    Initial Setup:
    Right now the speakers are fix mounted and is very rigid. The cables are not yet done because I wanted to test the speakers at sea first before i do the rest of install (in case the speakers are worthless at speed). So I just put the batteries and amp in a water bag. They are not in the way of my legs and the mirrors are totally unblocked at all bow angles!

    Test results:
    Yesterday rough off shore test shows that the speakers at maximum volume (max level without cracking) are well audible at speeds of 50+. I have not gone faster yet. After a full day of wave chopping, the speakers are still very rigidly mounted.

    Sorry I don't have many pictures of the install yet but I will take the boat apart again to do the rest of the install. I am planning to mount the battery and amp at the rear battery compartment.

    Please share some experience with me if you have any! More pictures to come!
