Well, that looks like the plan. Just another question. That MTX TC4004 amplifier won't put a really heavy load on my battery or charging system will it? I've got a deep cycle battery, not sure on what size, but its a pretty good size battery.
If thats the only amp youre running, your battery will be fine.
do you have an alternator in that boat?
If not, then you really shouldn't be running anything besides a 15 watt headunit. If you've got at least a 60 amp alternator, then you should be perfectly fine.
im pretty sure i've got a 65 amp alternator on the boat. Well thats good to know, thanks.
Most boats have either an alternator or generator and a full charging system just like cars. Otherwise, your fuel would outlast your battery charge and it would suck to be stuck on the water with no power. The only time I haven't seen a boat with a charging system of some sort in the recent past was on a little, Johnson outboard that was freaking ancient and needed a gigantic Deka deep-cycle marine battery to get 4 hours of operation out of the engine. Thankfully he replaced it with a Mercury 9 I think it is and that has an electrical system.
Well I just picked up the MTX TC4004 amplifier along with the Infinity Reference 1050w subwoofer. It's pretty sweet, got a decent deal on it too, lol. Hopefully I can start building the box tomorrow and start wiring the amplifier.
As for the wiring of the amplifier, is there any thing specific that I should do? There is not much mentioned in the owner's manual. Fuses? Anything else? I want to make sure I have this wired the right way.
What about the box? First time building a sub box, any pointers?
Well, all the equipment is installed and running. It sounds awesome. I will try to post some pics later if you guys are interested.
Sorry I didn't reply to your last post, but as far as installing and such, the only thing that is really 'essential' is that you have a fuse on the + power cable within 18 inches of the battery. For what you're running, I would say a 60 amp should be about right...
I'd love to see some pics... haven't seen a boat install in a long time. :)
It would be rougly 50 watts for each of the 4 speakers and 200 watts to a single SVC 4 ohm sub.
Do you know if I could do this with a Kicker DX200.4?
50watts x 4 channels
Bridged 100watts x 2 channels
