    FYI all, I decided to just go ahead with the factory stereo. My wife said she didn't want me drilling holes in our brand new boat, haha.

I want to say that on my buddies they have 75 watts to all the speakers but I am not sure. I think the system sounds pretty good for not breaking the bank.
    Thanks, I'll check those out!

    If you want a JL/Wetsounds system that will satisfy, (if you do it yourself) you'll probably come out somewhere around $2500, give or take $500. I think the advanced audio on the NXT like is something like $4k, so doing it after the fact is almost a no brainer.

    I think if you only go with a HU and 4 cabins you'll be disappointed...

    Yes, my dealer ran the cost sheet both ways for me. In fact, there's a couple of NXT's at Texas MC right now like that. I was browsing around looking for color references and noticed that last night. I'd have to drill holes for the speakers, but oh well.
    They order most of their NXTs without a stereo and mobile sound does them in various packages with JL components.

    Yeah, I'm not worried about that part at all. Thanks for the tips above, too. How would that bazooka mount?

    I noticed you edited your post... not sure I could keep the 209, haha. Why do you think I'd miss it? I admit a certain romanticism with not having a massive boat, but the family is starting to get cramped.

    I didnt know they would allow you to order without a stereo? I know it was an option on the Prostar, but thought the bigger boats required it. I would do the same. Order without and get better quality for the same or less money.

    I would not order one with a stereo personally as I feel you can get much greater value out of a system you either do yourself or have someone do for you.

    Yes and no.

    Yes - approaching with basic needs as you spoke. Nothing wrong with that.

    No - You will be much happier with the results by installing an amplifier for the cabins and a sub-woofer to compliment the cabins.

    Ordering a boat without a stereo?

    Trying to finalize an order for an NXT22, if they can secure me a build spot. One of the things I'm wondering about is ordering the boat without a stereo. Seems like the base Klipsch Commander system is pretty…..basic, especially for what they're charging for it. So, I'm wondering about options for a similar system because I figure I should be able to install something with similar capabilities for much, much less. I'll admit my requirements are pretty easy: no tower speakers, no subwoofers, and just 4-6 cabin speakers.

    It looks like a basic Wet Sounds system with MC5 head unit and four speakers would be like $750. Maybe that could get me started, and then a minor upgrade down the road could be another pair of cabin speakers and a small amp.

    Am I thinking about this right?
