  • I can hardly stand it, the waiting! Hopefully early next week. I think these look fantastic and the matte finish is going to match the new OEM badging perfectly. So stoked.

            Those are the mythical "bazooka" racks. They were only on the 2003's I believe. I have a set that will be up for sale soon, but I would not recommend them. They really only fit wakeboards. I fyou need racks, I would recommend the Roswell's.

              Can I get first right of refusal on those racks LD? What type of shape are they in? Mine still work great, but would love to have a spare set, depending what you're looking to get for them.

                  • Looks nice, I have a concept in my head of replacing my old tweeters with USB ports and 12V outlets in a future project. One in the glovebox is a good idea.

                      • @brucemac - Nice, ever thought of creating a true 'remote' IE, attaching the Fusion to something that floats so you can take it with you out in the lake when swimming ? They're waterproof or water resistant aren't they ? I have one right now by the throttle, thinking of getting another.

                          Thanks. Yeah, thought about it and I am going to buy a spare. They are IPX6 and IPX7 rated, but not sure if they float yet. Will play around with it this weekend and see what the range is.

                            What is the Raspberry Pi 4B + HiFiBerry DAC + ADC Pro and what do they do? I've never heard of them.

                              What is the Raspberry Pi 4B + HiFiBerry DAC + ADC Pro and what do they do? I've never heard of them.
                              The Raspberry Pi is an ARM-based computer that can run off 5V ~3A. You load OS images to Micro SD cards and it runs from that. Think DIY streamer.
                              https://www.raspberrypi.com/products...-pi-4-model-b/

                              The HiFiBerry HAT sits on top of the Pi and connects via the GPIO connector. It's designed for high-quality audio playback and has a dedicated Burr Brown DAC that supports sample rates up to 192kHz/24-bit.
                              https://www.hifiberry.com/shop/board...y-dac-adc-pro/

                              I have two SD cards with two different images that I can swap between:
                              1. Shareport-sync image
                              Pi boots up, turns the WiFi adapter into a wireless access point with an SSID of "MasterCraft" and then runs Shareport-Sync, which turns the Pi into an AirPlay speaker/target. I connect my iPhone to the MasterCraft WiFi network, turn the Fusion to Aux and can stream audio via Apple Music, Spotify, etc. via WiFi with less compression than Bluetooth. Better sound and higher resolution. Anybody with a phone can connect to the SSID and stream over WiFi versus having to futz with Bluetooth. You can still use your phone's cellular data even though you're connected to the MasterCraft WiFi. Pretty freaking cool.

                              2. Volumio image
                              Volumio is slick. Volumio is similar to number 1 above, but requires an Internet connection, which is provided by tethering the iPhone's personal hotspot via USB cable. It supports SpotifyConnect, AirPlay, Internet Radio, Tidal, FLAC, Pandora, local music libraries, etc. You use your phone and connect to the localhost IP of the Pi and you get a nice clean GUI for controls. It's matured a lot in the last year and I really like it, but wish I didn't have to tether. Will ultimately look to get some sort of 4G/5G hotspot and use a micro travel router that can be powered by the Pi's USB port. That's why I had them leave some room to the left of the Pi.
