I have a similar solution for sound on my boat. I use a Klipsch KMC 3 Bluetooth speaker system which is very powerful and delivers high quality sound. It is A/C powered, but runs for hours on batteries too. In my small boat, I leave it on a shelf in the main cabin, or when solo, in the pilothouse. It is also easily used in the cockpit or even on the dock during docktails. I normally use my iPhone or iPad for music, but sometimes even my Grundig Yachtboy AM/FM/SW using a patch cord. No holes or wiring . . . it works for me. On a larger boat, I would certainly have an 'installed' system like others have described in this post.

+1

Last year someone a few slips over had their tunes blasting away and then left to go up to the marina restaurant. Then the cd or player "stuck" and played the same few seconds over and over and over at high volume. This went on for more than an hour

Uncool.

I will further endorse the Fusion stuff. Very well thought out for the marine environment. I spent some time talking with them at CES a few years ago and was very impressed, both as a long time CE and mobile electronics veteran, but also as a boater.

Greetings,
Port Lucaya. About 5 years ago during spring break of all times. Shenanigans galore Saturday evening (buy a beer get a free shooter) by seemingly underage "students". Sunday AM.... "Do it to me one more time" on a loop playing for 5 hours at high volume in Lois Armstrong square until the previous evening's DJ could be located to turn the damn thing off.

I added the same set up this year and love it! I also have a wireless router on the boat with the fusion plugged into it. This allows me to control everything from an app on my iPhone (but I'm a bit of a geek). I have the 700 head unit in the lower helm with the wired remote on the FB but I seem to use the app more than the remote.

I too had the problem with the unit turning itself back on and gave them a call. Seems you just need to push the power button very briefly to shut the unit off, a long push puts it in "sleep" mode for a bit before it comes back on. Drove me crazy for a while when I would come back to the boat after a few days and the music was on!

Mr RT, that was hilarious! I fold. But perhaps for the next hand we could focus on the classics?

Yes a thousand times!

And don't play it loud in anchorages or other places where other people are around. Somehow it seems for some people, owning a boat turns them into ********!

A bunch at our marina played music until 4:00 AM on a recent Saturday night/Sunday morning. A bunch of people complained to management about it. Now the guy thinks it's OK until 2:00 AM. Fortunately the party season is over for the year but if he does it again next year the police will be called.

Although I mentioned above how I installed a stereo that reads music on SD cards, the reality is I seldom listen to music on my boat. I listen to the wind and waves and wildlife. And the VHF,

Greetings,
Mr. E. Bollywood aside, a couple of years ago I witnessed a performance of an older Chinese musician on stage, alone with his urhu (2 stringed instrument featured in post #31) and have been a fan ever since. Haunting and deep.

Actually I don't mind music (even if it's music i don't like) as much as ball games. That's the worst. They play it like you're desperate to hear it.

What I hate are the twenty some people who walk down my pier while I'm watching the game, just to stand at my rail and ask me:
"What's the score?"
"What quarter are they in?"
"How many minutes are left?"
"What channel is the game on?"
"Gee that's a great picture!"
"Do you have cable?"
"How do you get the game out here?"
"Do you lose the picture when the boat moves?"
"Do you mind if I stand here and watch it for a minute?"


I don't even understand how they know I'm watching the game???

I went with the Clarion 303 above the lower helm and the MW 1 wired remote on the bridge. I cut in my old Polk Audio 6/9s for the main salon. On the bridge are a pair of Bose 151 with wire outlets in the FB and in the Sundeck. This way I can live with one pair of outdoor speakers and move them for parties or driver entertainment as required. Thes four all run off a pioneer 400x4 amp. I'll wife in another pair, probably 4-1/2 inch rounds in the act cabin for those Barry White moments and power them directly from the deck.
