Well one of the upgrades this year was a sound system. The old one has toggle switches broke for the zones and the sound sucked. So off I went to do research.
I settled on the Fusion AV750. I saw it at WM and liked the options such as 4 zone control, CD/DVD, Bluetooth, able to tie it into my MFD on the bridge with NEMA 2000. But I didn't like WM price at over $700.
I also wanted to upgrade the sundeck and bridge speakers. I also added a sub-woofer.
I found the AV750 online for $550, Sub-woofer from Best Buy and 2 5 channel amplifiers from Amazon, the Kenwood marine speakers from Wal-Mart.
What I didn't know was in order to run this unit for all 4 zones, it requires an amplifier. Now room was an issue. These amps are the Boss 1950.
Took me a day to clean up the existing wires. A friend who is a cabinet maker made me the mounting panel to replace the door. He did a really nice job. Then $150 later for wire, clamps etc.
It took me 5 days total but wow what a difference. I can Bluetooth iHeart radio, play DVDs and have it pop up on my tv while the sound comes from the new system, and an app to control the system from my phone.
When I was adjusting all the input and outputs, I actually popped the circuit breaker when I was over driving the system. We will not be playing it that loud. Now I have a rock'n system.....
