New boat, pics, questions and general bs

Good evening all. 

my name is Matt and this is our 23 supreme s220. I’ve attached some pictures here as well if the boat, she’s beautiful! I’m not new to boats but I’m no expert either, we are coming from a 99 crownline 192br and the difference on the amount of room and storage we have is insane! My wife and I have 2 kids, 6 and 3 both boys and we are itching to get to use this thing. 
I’ve recently completed a ceramic coating on the boat within the last few days and have been playing around with the settings and audio system. 

a couple questions I’ve gathered 

I’m not overly impressed with the champ audio package, it gets loud but lacks quality sound. Im thinking of swapping out the dsp amps for non dsp wetsounds models so I have tuning capability’s and possibly adding a enclosure for the sub or adding a second sub in a stand alone enclosure by the amps. Has anyone messed with their systems slightly to sound better on these s series boats ? 

also are all boats from factory pre wired for lighting packages ? We didn’t get rgb lighting or transom lighting and I have loose wire connections in places 

is there a way to adjust the surge breaks on the boat mate trailer ? I’m getting a good slap after taking off from a red light after stopping

is there any specific things during the lake test and initial break in I should specify look for or ask our dealer regarding the boat you have possibly ran into ? 

thank you all for your replies ! Super stoked for lake season

Welcome Matt!

Congrats on the boat! Love the black and tan interior.

Is the champ package the 12” sun and pair of Rev 8’s? If so, that’s the package I have too. I’m not a huge audiophile but I also thought it was lackluster at first, but it seems to sound better on the water than sitting on the trailer for some reason. You could certainly make the changes you mentioned, but you might want to start with an equalizer? Just a thought.

I believe they do have one wiring harness per model, so you would be pre-wired for lights etc. 

Im not sure on the surge adjustment, I just take off very slowly from a stop to avoid the yank.

In terms of the lake test, just check all of the function. Make sure that all of your ballast pumps run until they pump water out of the overflow. The ballast is on timers, and mine did not fill all the way first time out. I had to end up adjusting the times.

Does anyone know where to get a 2003 avalanche owners manual, I recently purchased one and can’t seem to find one online?

Congratulations on the new boat.

As far as surge brakes I just take off slow.  And I have welded a shim on the ball mount so it doesnt have slop in the receiver.
