    Let us know the details, I'm currently doing my stereo install right now. I'm trying to figure out how to secure my sub.

    I did a stereo in a mid 90s yamaha waverunner. Simple 2 speakers in mirrors and marine cassette player under the seat with a wired remote. I used car speakers and they lasted a few years even getting wet.


    Goals for ultra stereo:

    long run time w/engine off

    able to hear at speed

    plays ipod and sat radio

    cheap (use parts I have here), simple, minimal drilling in ultra, removable

    I'll get some pics up in the next few days.

    What I know for sure is the mirrors are going to be replaced with 3 1/2" speakers

    XM Satellite System Installed....

    Monster... Would like to see pics of your system when completed. I installed my XM Satellite Stereo system on my ski back in May. My speakers were too big and heavy to mount in my mirror casings. I do enjoying my stereo system very much.

    Kristy, you install got me thinking about putting a system on mine

    2 day river run test results:

    Hours and hours of music w/engine off (have to check current draw but the deep cycle is good for at least 4-5 hrs)
    Wireless control (iJet) is slick, very slick (up to 100 feet from boat) http://www.abtech2.com/
    Battery didn't fly out jumping wakes
    Easy to hear all lyrics up to 40 mph. Above that I can just hear the beat.
    Docked at full volume (no distortion) you can hear it from at least 150 feet away from behind the boat.


    Improvements:

    Mount 12V cigar lighter inside storage area (ipod charging)
    Install switch so I can charge second battery from charging system
    Install a few tie downs in storage compartment
    Wire it so I can use dedicated battery or just factory battery
    Better speakers (two ways)
    More amp power and/or more sensitive gain settings (ipod volume max, amp gain max)
    ziplock bag or cell phone waterproof pouch so when ijet goes overboard it doesn't sink

    I just used stuff I had laying around. 35Wx2 channel pioneer amp, grey starboard, silicon, ipod, battery, tray, 1/8 jack to rca adapter, ijet RF ipod remote, electrical terminals and stuff, etc. I had to buy some 3.5 inch speakers from walmart. $12 for two. Didn't want to spend too much just on testing.

    Here was the hard part... cutting a speaker plate to mount the speakers in. The material is starboard 1/2" thick. Easy to work with and durable. It's held in the mirror housing with silicon and 3 ss screws.

    test speakers. I'm going to get some infinity 2 ways for better sound. they won't last as long but should still provide a couple years of service.

    Walmart speakers
