|Please recommend a reputable operation in or around Sac that will complete a clean install including amps, subs, LEDís, extra betteries, etc. Cost is a factor but I am just looking for a nice look and clean crisp sound. If you have had negative experience with a particular shop please advise so I may steer clear and avoid a similar situation. |
Also if you have recently had a system installed I would love to see some pics and a ballpark dollar figure along with what was installed. (parts list)
FYI, my boat currently has the Clarion deck with the factory JL audio speakers.
I will treat this post as a grade school class election, i.e. you can nominate yourself to be president! In other words if you think I should do business with you feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
Much appreciated. I need this ting bumpin before the weather gets nice.
|Neptunes Marine Audio! They are in Stockton but it is worth the drive. They specialize in BOAT audio. Charles and Jim are great guys too. They have a booth @ the Sac boat show right now. Also here is there website: www.teamneptunes.com|
|Come on folks, I need some help!|
|I would make the drive to Redwood City and go see Grant and Clay at SoundIllusions. They have a long list of happy customers and they have provided us all guidance along the way. I am a customer, I am happy to sing their praises as are otheres.|
You can't seriously think a 2 hour (or less) drive is too much bother, can you?

|Anyone have sound illusions phone number? I could not find it on their website. What are some nice looking great sounding tower speakers other then Fusion and the MC standard JL audio tower speakers?|
|Dont take your boat to Sound Illusions. I had my system installed there and they fill my boat with Sub's LED's Amp's TV screen's and Battery's |
Now everytime I get in my boat it's like the Sat night live skit "Night at the Roxberry" and that "What is love" song keep playing
|Thanks for reminding me, I gotta load that song on my IPOD!|
|Sound Illusions is the ONLY way to go. |
Grant and Clay are good people that do good work.
|Lightning in Rancho Cordova does stereo's I beleive. HotH20 can set you up with them. |
|I for sure recomend Neptune Audio or Sound Illusions. Both do killer work. Neptune is only a short drive from ya. Check 'em out |

|Off subject, |
That is one of the tightest SANTE's I've seen!
Back to subject,
You aint "Bling Bling" until Grant's given your boat the "Ding A Ling".
That jingle is now patented and you can purchase it from me for a small fee.
|Cliff- Thanks for the compliment, check out the Caesars SAN install thread to see the bling transformation in progress.|
| Give Kustom Kar a look they have a awsome 210 amp Wrangler alternator set up with a custom built bracket by Scott that is worth checking out. |
|Joe, you have a system in your X2 yet?|
|If you are around the Modesto, CA. area, I'd highly recommend Liquid Trends. They did an outstanding job on my V215. |
|LT has a shop in San Jose as well.|
| The boxes are made the amps are done as well as the alt bracket it goes back Saturday for install . We put a pair of NVS's on the tower 5 ARC amps 2 flatline subs we added another pair of Clarion speakers and tweeters we used the stock deck and added a EQ .|
|Joe, how did you mount your eq? I'm trying to fnd/fabricate a moutn for mine adn was looking for options. I want it accesible by the driver but also hidden from the elements. Right now it's up under my dash but my mount isn't holding very well. I'm using a bracket I made and some industrial velcro....the velcro works great but the glue backing won't stick in the high humidity.|
| Scott made a enclosue that looks factory and its mounted on the right side of the dash down low but not underneath . There is a spot on the X2 dash that is perfect for placement both for looks and function .|
|do you have a picture of it?|
|AC I will take one for you on Saturday and post it .|
|Joe are you going to Tulloch on the second weekend of April? I reeaaly want to get a peep of your MC!|
| Yes we will be there . It will be here before you know it .|
