    Looks awesome! I'm particularly interested in your lighting setup as I'm trying to do something similar in my 2001 prostar 209. Did you install the lights yourself? if so how difficult was is to install the horizontal light underneath the swimboard? I'm a little worried about drilling through the hull. Where did you get the other lights from? cupholder lights? what about the controller? Sorry for the barrage of questions but I'm impressed and want to replicate something similar. Great job man!

        This was the controller that was used https://www.shadow-caster.com/produc...it-scm-zc-kit/

        This place also sells the rear underwater light as well that was installed. As for the cup holder LED lights and the strip lighting most of the lighting was all ordered off amazon. With the 4 zone control you can do some pretty cool things light speakers one color and floor lighting another and under water lighting another. one of the coolest features i think is the lighting will change with the beat of the music.

            just some abs plastic was used to cute to fill the hole and then cut outs were made for the stereo and lighting controller. then it was just screwed in to the dash using black screws so you cant really see them. Also the plastic was wrapped in a vinyl wrap to to match the the rest of the panels.

              This looks amazing.

              Need more details on the JL gear. Which model speakers did you go with and how are you powering everything?

              Here is a list with links below. we havent got out and lake tuned it but in the garage i feel like my ears are going to bleed if i have more than half way up for a extended period of seconds


              Head Unit - JL MM50 https://www.jlaudio.com/products/med...ce-units-99911

              Bow speakers x2 8.8" - M6-880X-S-GmTi - https://www.jlaudio.com/products/m6-...speakers-93827

              Rear Floor Speakers x2 7.7" - M6-770X-A-GmTi its worth mentioning these were originally 6x9 cut outs factory so abs covers were made and screwed to the fiberglass then speakers were installed to that. https://www.jlaudio.com/products/m6-...speakers-93604

              Dash speakers x2 6.5" - M6-650X-S-GmTi-i https://www.jlaudio.com/products/m6-...speakers-93715

              Tower speakers x4 8.8" - M6-880RTXv3-SB-S-GmTi-i https://www.jlaudio.com/products/m6-...r-system-93663

              Subwoofers x2 M7-12IB-S-GmTi-i-4 Its worth mentioning that these haven't showed up yet but are supposed to be the best thing on the market. The plan is to put one in an enclosed box under the helm and then the second sub will be mounted in the passenger side walk way and used as a free air sub. https://www.jlaudio.com/products/m7-...bwoofers-93674


              Amps that were used are as follows

              M600/6 for the bow, floor and dash speakers https://www.jlaudio.com/products/m60...plifiers-98272

              M400/4 for the tower speakers https://www.jlaudio.com/products/m40...plifiers-98271

              M1000/1V2 will be used for the two M7 subs https://www.jlaudio.com/products/m10...plifiers-98357

              All RGB lights in the speakers as well as self installed RGBs on the floors, storage compartments, and side storage/cup holder areas are ran through 1 central unit.

                Excellent write up. Really appreciate the detail.

                It will be interesting to see what you think once you're out on the water. If I am reading the JL website correctly, those tower speakers are 4 ohms which means that amp is "only" putting out 75 watts with the engine running and 60 while floating.

                You have the luxury of being able to fairly easily experiment with 4 speakers vs 2 in bridge mode and compare the differences.

                  Were honestly not sure how the tower speakers will go but there is definitely room to grow since we will be at 75rms. We do camping trips where we have the music on at the sand bar for 6-8 continuous hours so were hoping the amp will stay cool and not get hot. This amp we already had running our Boston acoustic b52 tower speakers from 1999 and they always sounded amazing and were 20+ years old. We primarily surf so being 20-25 back from the boat at most we didn't think we really needed something extreme out of the tower speakers just clear and crisp but things may change haha

                  A cool feature from the jl head unit is the ability to set where you want your tower speakers as far as volume in regards to total volume with the other speakers. this is nice since we don't need the whole lake listening to our music.

                    After putting some more thought into the amp situation for the tower speakers and most jl products being on back order it was decided that a Wet Sounds Class D 2 channel 600w amp is what is going to be used since it s readily available and shows up Monday

                    This should get us to that 150w rms per speaker we need to be at.

                      Wow, that looks great. I did the same thing with the sun deck on my '99 Maristar, but have not had a chance to put on the gas shocks and latches yet.

                      I am interested in the ballast setup. I have fat sacks and a portable pump. Would love to put in the pumps and switches that you did. Can you help me out with sources? Also wondering if I can convert my existing fat sacks to use the hardwired pumps?

                      Thanks.

                          Almost everything was ordered off wakemakers.com that switch panel and although this was wired at home they sell prewired labeled kits for each pump and it makes it dummy proof and pretty much plug and play.

                          The hardest part about this installation was adding 2 more inlets on the bottom of the boat
                          which we used these. https://www.wakemakers.com/bronze-mu...ll-intake.html paired with these for emergency's https://www.wakemakers.com/bronze-ball-valve.html

                          Drilling holes in the boat is never fun. The second biggest thing is we wanted to plumb the bags in using a series of check valves that allowed us to know when the bags are full by it spitting out the side of the boat when the bag is full but also we wanted it to spit out the side when they empty so we know when all the bags were empty.

                          Last year it would take us roughly 20 minutes to be surf ready with the two 450s in each rear locker as well as the center ski locker ballast being filled with one pump. as well as 2 additional 350lb bags we would put in the walk way and on the floor in front of the seat.

                          This year we added 900lbs of lead to get rid of the bags we use to run on the floor. 300lbs in each rear locker under the 450# fatsac and an additional 300 up in the bow. This will be like us running 750s in the rear locker with out using all the storage since it is a 21 foot boat storage is hard to come by. Were hoping for 5-6 minute fill times using one of these pumps for each bag https://www.wakemakers.com/johnson-u...last-pump.html

                            Great write up! I’m in the middle of the same ballast upgrade and tabs. Very interested to see how the underwater lighting performs. Excited for your crew and the saved time and waves you’ll be surfing
