byerman posted a topic in Centurion Boat Accessories, Electronics and ModificationsI am looking to upgrade my sound. When I bought the boat, I wasn't too concerned. I bought the stock stereo etc. Now the kids want some tunes while they surf. There are no dedicated marine audio centers but a few RV audio centers that dabble in marine here in Northern Utah. I wouldn't mind doing it myself or getting help from a car audio place. My dealer no longer carries Centurion. Centurion dealer 1.5 hours away has a great reputation but has not communicated well on the few repairs they have done. They have done a nice job but there seems to be wall that stops communication between the front end and the service center (maybe unfair criticism on my part). My data: 2014 Centurion SV233, Gladiator Tower, stock Clarion M303 stereo (usb and bluetooth work well), 4-stock speakers (possibly 6 inch?) Questions: 1. Can an amp simply be plugged into the back of my stereo, mounted, and then run to new tower speakers? What Amp? Where would the power come from? Would my stock speakers still run off of the stereo. 2. People are raving about "Rev 10's" on this site. The videos and comments are fantastic. They look HUGE. They seem so wide. I was hoping to have some that are a bit less physically intrusive (more head room). How would a pair of Rev-8's be on underside, laterally, on the gladiator tower? Would they fit on this mounting area? Would they have acceptable fidelity? Any other suggestions?
I have a 2008 Enzo SV230 with the skylon double up tower. Boat came with the Sony head unit with built in amp powering the in boat speakers and a remote mounted on the driver console. My first issue, whenever I hit a wave or small bounce (I am not slamming into wakes), everything turns off and comes back on. I am assuming loose connection somewhere but has anyone had this issue and solved it? #2 Just got a great deal on Roswell Vamp Pro Spin speakers and a Rockford Fosgate 5 Channel M600 Amp. Speakers have LED lights in them. My first thought was to install them to the sub channel but I have been thinking that might become very annoying. My second thought was to add a switch somewhere so I could choose always on or powered by sub. I will also be installing a secondary battery with Perko switch. I have been reading as much as I can on this set up but am a little confused on a few points. I would like to have volume control over in-boat and tower separately. I am on a very tight budget but I also don't want to waste money by buying cheap quality and having to replace in the next year or two. I got the 5 channel amp so that I could add a sub next year and hope to continue adding to the boat each year. Can anyone walk me through (treat me like an infant on this one) how to set this up? If there is a thread that already covers this, direction to that thread would work as well. Thank you in advance for all your help.
