    2011 Sea Doo RXT 260 IS Battery Access

    So I am looking to install the following items into the ski. The only problem I'm seeing is I can't figure out how to get access to the battery from the front of the ski.I tried fishing a test cable from the front to the back and vise verse, but it seems like the top and bottom decks of the ski are sealed off from eachother. I must be missing something here. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Here is what I am looking to replicate.






    I will probably go with the non bluetooth version of the kicker amp just due to some of the issues I have been reading about it. That is if I can find an iphone 5 cable for the older model.

    So the video is showing a Wake Pro 215, but your asking about a RXT Is????

    I know a lot of people put stereos in Sea-Doos but I say stay away.....The charging system really cant handle it!!!!!

    Besides, install a cold air intake and a big SC wheel and hear some real music to the ears while riding!!!!!

    The suspension system base and the air intake are in the way on the right side of the ski. The left side has very little room since the suspension base is there as well, but you might be able to get it there...

    Again be careful with the stereo and the charging system!!!!!!!!!!

    Looks like the only option is running your wiring through the steering or harness rubber boot

    Here is underside of upper deck, not sure how your going to mount the speakers in footwells but back side of speakers will be exposed to the elements unlike the non suspension ski's, let me know if you need any more pics

    I have my aS in two halves right now and I have a cable conduit running up following steering cable, to the side of the coil spring (this is because I need all my data & acc power cables in my glovebox). I have sucessfully run additional fuel hoses from my RRFPR (living in my engine bay) back through to the bow fuel tank. They sit nicely on the starboard side of the hull. Either route is only safely accessible with the top deck off as you MUST secure all cables, hoses ect away from moving suspension parts. I threaded all mine through a tough, flexible conduit hose to provide a high security level against abrasion and tugging forces.

    As for speaker placement, they will not last five minutes in that location without some seriously watertight back boxes on (even marine grade speakers) and the clearance is super tight, if at all available.

    Have you thought of using in ear moulded reference earpieces? The kind they use on stage. The sound is awesome and fit is watertight and comfy. Killer bass. Unless of course, you're wanting to blast your tunes for everyone to look at you and be impressed?
