Amplifier Kit

Just spotted this on the Force 4 site and wondered, given the past discussion on this topic, whether this was of interest to anyone.

Andrew,

Looks a good buy for those in the market for a MP3 player on their boat.

Ooo Good-Oh. Be interested to hear your comments. If it gets a good review I might have to write a letter to Santa

TIA

Don't want to worry you, but 50W isn't a lot.

I built a similar system with a 100W amp and bigger speakers that is only just loud enough at speed.

Nasher,

I agree with you. But first I'd like to hear a field report from Jon.

Its the speakers I'm having trouble sourcing. Big boat speakers are horrendously expensive. A half decent amp can probably be sourced from a ICE outlet. But waterproof high wattage speakers seem to be only available as wakeboard speakers.

Nick

These are Marine grade two piece 100W jobbies, the larger part being 6inch, that I found on the bay for not a lot of cash.
Made the surrounds myself.
All the connectors on my std car Amp are covered in silicone grease, and I've sealed up all the holes/gaps in the case with the same stuff.
It all survived last Winter and I've no reason to suspect it wouldn't last a few years. The jack plug for the MP3 lives in the glove compartment.

I'm also looking at a cheap source of some bigger speakers, as I have a choice of two more Amps sat in the garage now.
1 x 500W/C and 1 x 800W/C.

Nasher,

I would dearly love a pair of wakeboard speakers. But they are very dear. And I want to be certain I get the right bit of kit.

When I was at the SBS I talked to the lads on the Marine AV stand but unfortunately as nice as they were, they were about as much use as a chocolate fireguard when it came to talking about the wakeboard speakers. They had a few fitted really high on their stand so I couldn't get a look at the bit I am concerned with. Seems the speakers are made with a view to being removed quickly. Therefore the wires just plug in and are open to the elements. Its something I wanted to check out. But so far haven't been able to. I don't mind replacing a 50 quid amp every couple of years but a 300 quid set of speakers has got to last a lot longer.

With regards the Amp I'm going to get a cheap two channel 200 Amp one from Maplins. Thats my plan but until I actually do it I'd like to hear other peoples experiences with different speaker packages and ampages etc so I can get the correct bit of kit.

Nick.
