A client from Abbotsford approached Driven Audio with a request to turn his 2016 21′ Sylvan Pontoon boat into a party machine! We discussed how he would use the boat to quantify just how loudly he needed it to play.
Since the boat was brand-new, we were able to use the factory source unit for the project. The radio included all the features the client needed and allowed us to free up some budget for more speakers and more power.
We started with a JL Audio M800/8v2 eight-channel amplifier as the heart of the system. JL Audio treats this amplifier to a powder-coated finish and includes a water-resistant cover for the controls and stainless steel mounting hardware. We mounted the amp to a panel made from Starboard to ensure resistance to moisture.
We installed three pairs of JL Audio MX650 coaxial speakers, distributing the speakers around the boat to make sure that everyone had a speaker nearby. We added a 10″ JL Audio subwoofer to enhance the bass on the boat.
The client loves how loud the system plays and that his friends and family enjoy it.
