There is one version for the tower, bow, cockpit, and helm zones. Type 2 is for the subwoofer zone. Send me a PM if interested.


Do they automatically drop voltage to 4V or keep it higher up to 8V?

Apologies for my meatheaded brain, but do those allow one to connect the Klipsch DSP > JL or any amp > any speaker or sub?
Yes, thatís exactly right. Klipsch DSP ó> aftermarket amp ó> speakers

Is the blue wire the switched power signal to the amp from the DSP?
Yes, it will control power to the aftermarket amp.

If so, please count me in for one Type 1 for speakers and one Type 2 for subs. Thanks again.

They drop the voltage to maximize amplifier compatibility

^Tremendous! Thanks EEC.

Nice to be excited again for a new boat, which I'm now naming TOM, or Top of Market.

Additional dumb questions as I have yet to take delivery of the new boat with Klipsch.

Presume the MC Klipsch system is dual or single screen controller/receiver > Klipsch DSP > Klipsch Amps > Klipsch speakers?

EEC, in using your new wiring harnesses, presume if one wants higher powered amps then you would simply replace the Klipsch Amps with the EEC wiring loom and a new amp? If so it would be screen controller/receiver > Klipsch DSP > EEC Wiring Loom > Aftermarket Amp > any speakers?

Seems like others have either gone the above route, or used a line-out converter downstream from the Klipsch DSP?

Thanks again EEC, apologies for the redundant questions but wanted to post them here for others. Much appreciate your knowledge and equipment sharing for these new systems. It not only provides us with a roadmap of upgrade options, but helps reduce the pucker factor and preserves the MC Klipsch system controls.

Yes you can either use a line out converter from klipsch amp on desired speaker wire or get the adapter which goes straight from dsp output to rca for any amp.

Your diagrams are 100% correct. You can either use my DSP to RCA adapter or a line-out converter.

Also when I replaced my Klipsch amps with aftermarket amps I found it useful to buy the 12-pin, 8-pin, and 2-pin Deutsch connectors to make my own harnesses to plug into factory wiring. This greatly reduced my pucker factor because I didn't have to cut any of the factory wire harnesses.

eecyclone,

I sent you the Venmo for the connector and pm'ed you my address.

I'm looking at adding the all new JL MV400/4i w/DSP to power just 2 Tower speakers (or possible the MV600/2i). At first I will test current Klipsch tower speakers, then I may just throw them in the trash and get one pair of the JL M6-880.

-Is the all new MVi series worth it or should I just stick with the M400/4?
-Does the Klipsch DSP already work with your plug adapter so just go with the M400/4?
-will the MVi just sound way better with less interference and less distortion?
-Where is the best place to purchase JL products?

-Have you checked out the JL TuN Express app that works with the JL DSP amps? looks purity cool.
