    Volume and mute are controlled by the JDAB bus. The mini DIN is a constant level signal. This can be tested by unplugging the JDAB plus and pressing the volume control or mute.

        I take it the JDAB bus is sending a digital signal to the DSP for volume/mute?

          Yes. It also tells the DSP which “mode” the boat is in- chill/drive/wake/ski/surf as well as adjusting the volume of each zone and the main volume & mute

            Haha. I have no clue how the klipsch interface works. Hence why I had to pay some one to do it.

              MC’s decision to partner with Klipsch was a terrible mistake in my opinion. Reading this thread makes my head spin and makes me not want to buy a MasterCraft again unless it’s pre-Klipsch era. You have to be an engineer to understand these new complex systems and god forbid anything goes wrong after the factory warranty expires. It is excessive and ridiculous. Give me old school JL or Wet Sounds!

                Eecyclone has got it down. I do all my own stereo work, and this was wayyy over my head. Cost me good $$$$ to have it done correctly.

                  Eecyclone do you know if and how to add the 4 channel klipsch amp to advanced audio package? I would like to add the dash speakers and additional sub to the interior of my boat. Klipsch said it can’t be done. I believe it could be tied into the stock 8 channel I have now.

                    I’m not even sure how you could add the dash speaker on the drivers side without it looking odd, unless the cutout is there?

                      Not hard. Just pull dash and remove vinyl. Cut out plastic for speaker and recess in place with vinyl back on. Other option is just cut dash hole and place on top similar to passenger side not frenched in the fiberglass.

                        Adding the amp isn’t hard but your DSP won’t have the extra output for the dash zone. All you could really do is add the dash speakers to the cockpit zone.
                        Are you sure you have the stock 8 channel and not a 5 channel? What do you have for factory tower speakers?
                        It makes a difference for adding a second sub to the advanced package.

                          What about more power to the cabin speakers?

                            I got the advanced audio package which is four 8.5s in the cockpit and bow, 10.5 sub at drivers seat, two S80 on tower. Confirmed it is an 8 channel amp. 6 channel used for interior and tower speakers. 2 channel bridged for sub. I’m thinking the 4 channel amp setup the same way with 2 channel tied to dash speakers either 7s or 8.5s and other 2 channel bridges to sub. I would prefer to tie the dash speakers to cockpit zone and sub to sub but also fine if it’s tied to cockpit zone. Do you think it could be done?

                              Rather than add a 4 channel amp you should purchase a Klipsch mono amp. This would allow you to move the existing subwoofer over and add an additional subwoofer and have 650 watts for the subs. Then you would have 2 channels free to add another pair of speakers in the cockpit area. You would just use the "feed-through" connection from the 8 channel amp for these additional speakers.

                                That’s actually a great idea! I didn’t even think of using that amp. Should be able to splice the cockpit zone control wires for the dash speakers and move the sub wires over to mono amp. I wonder if I can get a wiring schematic for the boat...
