Overkill yes of course but it is exactly what the customer wanted. I personally would not want it on my boat but we definitely would not tell a customer no unless we knew it was going to cause harm to someone or something. This customer came to us asking us to do a job that would make his system the biggest on the water and as for the tower it is. To each his own.
As for the question on the tower and if it can Handel it yes it can. We started with a brand new tower thanks to Malibu. We took the whole tower apart found the parts that were going to cause problems and fixed the issues before the tower was even mounted to the boat. Along with tower being reinforced the boat was as well. So yes this tower and the boat can Handel it and at least 12 more rev10's..........
Oh and we did not create new access points for wire entering the tower we machined the Malibu parts to fit all of are new 12 12gauge wires for the tower speakers.
Here is a quick breakdown of what is in the boat for gear.
11 pairs of wetsounds rev10
3 pair of wetsounds xs650
2 kicker L7 15's
6 arc audio ks600.2
1 arc audio ks300.4
1 arc audio ks2500.1
2 audio control matrix units for tower
1 arc audio xeq
1 alpine 149bt
12 dc115 full river batteries
160 amp balmar alternator
2 geniuses battery chargers
As for the installation everything in the boat besides the sub box has been built using 1/2" plastic sheet and factory Malibu carpet and everything has been mounted using nothing but stainless. For the sub box it is built to last to not only from the speakers but the elements too. For the wiring if you know me or any of my prior installs you know that we do not cheap out on anything. The wiring in this boat is just as much overkill as the tower. We want are installs to last and be able Handel the conditions of being out on the water. We want the customer to be able to use this boat and if he chooses to be hard on it well than it can take the abuse.
Oh and the customer is all ready planning on more both bass and tower and more lights than we have ever put in a boat.
Big Thanks to the guys that helped make this job come together in 7 days.
