A client from here in Metairie, LA, contacted us about upgrading the audio system in his 2016 Pathfinder 1600 HPS boat. We talked to the client about where and how he uses the boat, and what his goals were for the audio system. With a grasp of his needs, we designed an audio system that would sound amazing. With the client’s approval, we scheduled an appointment to start the installation.
We started by installing a JL Audio Media Master MM100s source unit at the helm. We ran audio signals from the JL Audio source unit to a pair of JL Audio marine amplifiers. We installed an MX280/4 and an MX500/4 amplifier near the boat’s power inverter. We wired the MX280/4 in a two-channel configuration to a pair of JL Audio M770CCXSGWH 7.7 inch speakers in the overhead console. The M500/4 amp was also wired in a bridged configuration to power a set of JL Audio M880CCXSGWHs. We installed the 8.8-inch JL speakers in the front of the boat. The significant size of all the speakers provides amazing efficiency and solid bass output.
