    kicker stereo install on my vx

    my kicker pxi50.2 Ipod/mp3 controller with 4 speakers and 36 amp hour battery for a separate electrical system. only draws 5 amps average and 10 amps max at vol. all the way up. 5-7 hours listening time. battery tender on the battery when parked in the garage. 2 speakers mounted under steering column in fiberglass enclosures i made, under the glove box with 2 factory bolts. 2 in front in the access panel. in a perfect world id like to hear it around 35 mph, but if not great for the sand bar on the river where i always go. no more busting out the boom box.

    36 amp hour battery...
    What is the total added weight of all that stuff to your ski...
    I'll bet it sounds good though.

    Looks good, i had a bad experience with my one and only kicker amp, its was the 850.4 in my truck. Burnt it up, but it was always power hungry and shut down for heat. Switched to an alpine mrp f600 that plays cleaner, cooler and uses substantially more power. Might be something to consider with the limited charging systems we work with.

    That's not bad at all; that battery looks like it would be way more than that.

    Could you throw up a better pic of where the speakers are on the ski? It's hard to tell on that photo.
