  • 2004 xstar stereo Replacing everything.

    Ok i made a post a while back about replacing the whole sounds system. Its just fallen apart over years and was weak from the start. I took the advise on here and ordered everything today. Everything should be here friday and the fun begins. Any advise on the install would be appreciated, amp wiring or battery setup. Im looking to have the stereo on a switch completely seperate from the boats electrical. Right now i have a 3 battery setup but might get a few more. Along with what i bought i will be keeping my JL 13.5 W7.

            Hes protecting my new stuff for me! Plenty of picture will be taken. Im trying to figure out how im mounting all 5 amps and where. The 13.5 sub takes up so much room on the passenger side. I was thinking about in front of the drivers area. Any thoughts?

                Sorry should be 4 amps. JL 1000/1 v2 , Wetsound SD6, And two JL 750/1. iv been looking at other installs and amp racks. Some pretty impressive work done. This is gonna take a little time to do right.

                  I run a 2 battery setup for the stereo and 1 cranking battery. Running 2 amps right now, 1 for the 2 Kicker 12" subs and 1 for the 2 towers and cabins. The 2battery bankhandles it well.

                      Isn't it funny how a cat immediately jumps on or lays on anything that is new to the house.

                          So everything is here and the install has started. We are removing everything to clean it all up, cut out bigger holes, and to actually install the interior like it should be.... With washers and nuts and bolts... Don't really need to get into that little bit of disappointment.

                            Removal of the interior pieces and the speaker boxes, also mounting the Rev10s. Big thanks to my friend Kevin for helping me. And a few other pictures showing size difference in new vs old.
