Sound System for 2001 Ski Sanger V210 Any Advice?

Post by Bruce D. Broadwate » Sun, 15 Oct 2000 11:16:01


I have a Sanger V210 (open bow) and will be puttng several thousand into

sound system and need advice.

I have a tower but do not want to hang speakers on it. My listening
goals are for inside the boat not for the rest of the lake.
So far, components are going to be:
Cassette unit with CD changer control, remote control (wired preferred),

technology to accomodate bumps without too much skipping, mounted  ???
One 12" woofer mounted in box and installed under drivers side dash,
One 4 channel amp, one 2 channel amp, mounted in passenger side storage,

Four speakers in***pit, mounted ????

Any and all suggestions on install, types of components, experiences
welcome.

Bruce

It is nice to see that someone is more interested in sound quality then
being cool.  I agree that you need something to combat skipping, have you
looked at MD.  Not only is it much more convenient everywhere, but it will
not skip in the boat, and you don't have to worry about scratching your CD's
when the water gets rough.  I have a Sony MD reciever with a 10 disc Cd
changer, and that is what I would recommend.  You can get a wired remote for
Sonys for about 20 dollars.  As far as speakers and amps go, stick with a
reputable manufacture and you should be fine.  The most important thing is
to mount the amps where they will be safe from equipment, and from water.
For speakers you will want to mount them where they are protected, but also
where they have the best chance of recreating a lifelike sound stage.  Maybe
on the dash, and somewhere else in the***pit?  Also, do you want the
people in the bow to be able to hear the tunes?  Let me know if you have
anymore questions.

I currently have a 1999 MC SportStar open bow with a sound system i
picked out and had installed.

I have a Pioneer DEHP-4100 single disk changer with multiple cd
controls. It came with a slim remote(wireless) which works wonders.
With the wireless remote i can change the volume without even looking
at the cd player from anywhere in the boat. the cd player rarely skips.
only in extreme rough water will it skip once.

I also have an 8" Bazooka tube mounted with and amp and a crossover all
under the passengers seat. The cd player has the capability to change
the power distribution from the highs-mids-lows. For speakers i have 4
6.5" Pioneer marine speakers that were 2 for $75. Pioneer also has the
next step up speakers for $150 for 2 with twice the power.The whole
system sounds great inside the boat but from the water you really don't
hear it.

I would recommend looking at any of the components i have mentioned. of
course there are many good products out there.

Go with Sony, Clarion or one of the others with a wired
remote.  There is also an IR extender that you can use.

Thanks for comments. Sanger plans for decks to go into glove box and build
a slanted back wall inside to tilt face to a viewable position. Nice
thought, but creates some limits. One is, wireless remotes don't work well.
Second, Sanger left out any places for speakers. Installing requires
cutting vinyl or fiberglass.
One suggestion given for front speaker location was in the walk-through to
the bow. I thought they would cancel each other because of the face to face
mounting and closeness. Where are your fronts?

Thanks for the comments. It looks like Sony is coming up with most
recommendations because of anti shock and remote.
MD is interesting but I know very little about availability of disks. Do I have
to record my own?

The best place for the front speakers is on top of the dash, both
sides, for optimal sound while driving. The sound bounces off the
windshield directly into you. Only problem is that you don't have pre-
drilled holes from the manufacturer. Most new boats that I've seen have
the front speakers mounted this way. If you have to install, you
probably have to remove the windshield to drill the holes or be really
good at guessing!

In terms of stereo placement, I agree with Tom, you can buy an infra-
red extender cheap. You can find them on the net, any search engine. I
found a few that had up to 20 foot wire extender with eye that can be
mounted anywhere. Get creative and you can wire it up to the top of the
windshield or up a tower if you have one and be able to use the remote
from anywhere in the boat at any position/angle. Great for when you're
floating.

Word of advise on amps/cd changers, make sure you mount them off the
floor by at least 4-6 inches. I had a buddy who didn't and someone
driving did a bow wash and soaked the floor, even into the storage area
and ruined his equipment.

Think about adding a second battery and a perko switch if you get into
amps and a sub.

If you're looking for quality sound, think about 3 way speakers. If
your glove box does not lock, look at detachable face decks.

I've got JVC deck, speakers and changer in mine and they sound very
good and are plenty loud. 45 watt x4.

In terms of amps and a sub, Rockford Fosgate makes premium quality
stuff and is reasonably priced (Best Buy type stores). I did a 12 inch
sub and a 250 watt amp for just under $200 and made a speaker box for
around $20 that fits nicely under the driver dash (assuming you have no
heater)

Bruce, you can buy prerecorded discs off websites.  Check out
http://SportToday.org/ you will find everything you want to know there.
While you can buy discs, when was the last time you bought a CD and liked
every song on it?  That is what is so great about MD: copy the CD, and
listen to it a few times, then if you don't like some of the songs erase
them and replace them with songs from other discs you do like.  You can even
rearange the order of the tracks whenever you want.  I guarentee that if you
try MD you will want it for everything (car, house, portable to workout
with)  Check out the link and then email me if you have any questions.
