You just put Tim White's children through college....

dhcomp 04-23-2009 9:25 PM

2 questions. <BR> <BR>1. Why? You can get crazy loud with just a pair or 2 of wetsounds. <BR> <BR>2. I think your tower speakers are going to be under powered. That is a badass zapco, but not enough for THAT MANY high powered speakers. <BR> <BR>Hope you have a nice battery bank and high output alt. And friendly ppl on your lake.

05mobiuslsv 04-23-2009 9:30 PM

^^^You must have missed how many zapco's he has powering those speakers.

chucktronics 04-23-2009 9:31 PM

dh- <BR>Sorry if i was unclear in my post, but there is 5500 watts going to the tower if needed,1100 watts to the interior, and 4400 to the subs

ponte_06_x2 04-23-2009 9:35 PM

holy crap.

ponte_06_x2 04-23-2009 9:36 PM

dh. the question is not why so much. the question is " what in the hell do you do for a living?" good god. good for the owner. that will pay the shop bills for a little while. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by ponte_06_x2 on April 23, 2009)

clayton191 04-23-2009 10:09 PM

Are you competiting in the sound off at spring ride?!?!?

yubasanger 04-23-2009 10:19 PM

That boat owner must be the founder of the more money than brains club. Glad to see some people are still spending money like it's growing on trees. For any one wondering why lakes are enforcing sound ordnance, just look at this guy’s tower. Guess the only up side is that Wet Sounds and Chucktronics will be alive for a while longer.

doubleup720 04-23-2009 10:27 PM

Why all the hate, if the guy wants to spend his money on a trick azz system let him. Stop with all the hate........

family_deckhand 04-23-2009 10:28 PM

Really? Cmon now. To each his own and i guess in a way its cool. What is the point other than to prepare yourself for hearing aids and p*** off everyone else on the lake. I know, I know if it's to loud you're to old. I guess I'm to old!

dhcomp 04-23-2009 10:28 PM

Ok, you win. I didnt' see it was 5 mono block amps. How clean do the Zapco mono's play, are they class D? <BR> <BR>And really, everyone assuming he is a <font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font> and drives around with it blasting is kinda jumping to conclusions. Good chance he is, but still.

clayton191 04-23-2009 10:30 PM

I, personally, think its kind of cool.... so the hate has officially stopped.

soundbox 04-23-2009 10:46 PM

Looks like a great project. Can't wait to see the amp rack (or racks) and what charging system you have worked up. I'm glad to see another shop full of boats. Scott has been raving about that Zapco processor.

ryand121 04-23-2009 10:51 PM

That's pretty impressive! Plus, if you run out of gas, those should at least push you back to the dock...

jp1 04-23-2009 11:11 PM

hahahahahahahaha...completely retarded I wouldn't want to be anywhere near this yahoo even at low volumes and i thought N......s was the local wetsounds dealer, thats where i got mine, i guess someone missed out on a big pay day...<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/lol.gif" border=0>

shawnk 04-24-2009 5:29 AM

Did I miss it? Where are the subs going?

jonyb 04-24-2009 5:32 AM

I'm interested in seeing the finished results. <BR> <BR>F^ck the haters... You guys probably do stupid stuff too.

gti2lo 04-24-2009 5:40 AM

No need for fat sacs in the boat.. you have enough magnets for wieght.... <BR> <BR> <BR>Going for a sound competition? Looks a little odd with that many tower speakers... now time to hire a band to play though the concert sound system!

wake77 04-24-2009 5:40 AM

The rider behind that boat is going to have the feeling they are riding into a constant 25mph wind.

highrock 04-24-2009 5:47 AM

How sturdy can that tower be with all that weight on there? I mean boards and few speakers are one thing but all that stuff is on the top putting more leverage for it to move around. <BR> <BR>The guy whos boat it is has more money than sense for sure.

formfunction 04-24-2009 6:05 AM

Thats one of the dumbest things ive ever seen,well other than the dumb crap I pull.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/lol.gif" border=0>

wakedoctor 04-24-2009 6:10 AM

The ownership of tower speakers isn't what gives wakeboarding a bad name, is thinking you need to show them off 24/7 when in reality 99% of other people don't want to hear what you are listening to. ******s(meaning ignorant people) are getting wakeboarding banned. Rant over.

stanfield 04-24-2009 6:20 AM


curtisco24 04-24-2009 6:21 AM

little jealously on here. lol That tower will never support all that. It is a weak tower to begin with. The gel will have cracks all over those tower mounts.

bboozer 04-24-2009 6:31 AM

I agree that it looks like the rope will be affected by those speaker mounts on the top. But, I am going to go out on a limb and say that riding is probably not going to be the owners main focus. I guess it is cool if you are into that thing.. I mean being able to get it all in there and look clean, but really not necessary. I can appreciate the fact that it can be done and all but really "WHY"... I guess it is like the guys with the Fountains and other go fast boats where every one of them is trying to out do the other by having a longer or faster boat... But, everyone has their own vises and ways to have fun...

wetsounds1 04-24-2009 6:45 AM

Wow! Ryan, looks unreal. Has to sound insane! I may have to make a trip out there just so I can hear this boat <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/biggrin.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>Tim <BR>Wet Sounds <BR> <BR>(Message edited by wetsounds1 on April 24, 2009)

hatepain 04-24-2009 7:12 AM

I'd love to hear this thing going off. I'm no fan of the speakers on top and throwing in some Pro 60's is kinda funny with all those 80's up there. The subs look sick and the boxes are pretty damn good looking too. <BR> <BR>What's going in the interior speakers wise? <BR> <BR>dhcomp, its a class A/B amp

timmyb 04-24-2009 7:23 AM

Wow! I would love to hear this thing! Of course when you turn it up, I may be able to hear it here in Colorado! <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/lol.gif" border=0>

themxercr85 04-24-2009 7:41 AM

"Isn't the rope going to rub on the two middle speaks when the rider cuts out wide?" <BR> <BR> <BR>Haha I dont think he cares! <BR> <BR> <BR>Thats nuts though man! I just blew a load in my pants you have to put a youtube video up or something I CANNOT imagine how loud that is gonna be. <BR> <BR> <BR>And the haters need to stop hatin, If you dont like it, then click the back button. Cuz you know if you had the money you would for sure be spending it right now, jealousy brings out the worst in people.

roverjohn 04-24-2009 7:51 AM

When he gets kicked off whatever lake he hangs out at he can rent the boat out to GWAR for live shows. <BR> <BR>/thank God he's half a country away

wetsounds1 04-24-2009 8:07 AM

I would say that it looks like an insane party cove system. He may just tie up and supply music for all his strippers!<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/biggrin.gif" border=0> Boat Audio and big systems are now like the old school days or car audio. Some guys it is a hobby for them. <BR> <BR>You also have to remember that everyone uses their boats completely different. Some are core riders, some are families, some are wakesurfers, some do a bit of everything, some just drive to cove and party. Who knows. <BR> <BR>The whole thing about big systems is respect. I have always had the loudest boat on the lake. But we use it with respect. Rider falls, hit pause. Rider is up. Back on again. Pull into the ramp, music is off. People and families around, music is off. I can tell you I have seen disrespect on both ends. Guys with cheap systems and guys with big systems. But, It always seems like the guy with the cheap system that is all distorted is the one blaring it all the way to the ramp, and while the boat is on the trailer play F this and F that etc.. And guys with big systems, know how much power they have. And don't need to show it off on the ramp or at 5 am. <BR> <BR>Like the guy with a Ferrari. He knows he has the best and the fastest. He doesn’t have to go around everywhere peeling out and revving his engine. But the kid in the fast and furious car, revs engine at the light, peels out every chance he gets. Has to try to show off that his car is fast etc… <BR> <BR>But it is not really fair to categorizes either. As I know everyone can have disrespect whether they have a system this big or not. But just because they have a big system does not automatically make them “that guy”!! <BR> <BR>Tim <BR>Wet Sounds

chucktronics 04-24-2009 8:15 AM

Tim- Rumor has it my customer just put your kids through college!....lol <BR> <BR>Hate- The customer was originally going with just the 80's on bottom,until he looked at WS gallery( therefore this is Tim's fault<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/rofl.gif" border=0>).He then came in for a change order and went bigger.I am not a fan of speakers above the tower like yourself,but if he's willing to pay for all the machining and bracing to make this possible ,why not. <BR>The interior is going to be done with lighted rings and Wetsounds 650's <BR> <BR>pics of batt enclosures before interior resin and lids <BR> <BR>2 banks of (6) 6 volts for 1394 ah <BR>the system draws a mean of about 175 amps with spikes to 275amps(anywhere from 5-8 hrs of continuous play at full volume before clipping). <BR> <BR>2 batt cap 2000 are located at the amps and distro blocks <BR> <BR>Xantrex 40 amp charger with thermal sensors on all three banks <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/690069.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/690070.jpg" alt="Upload">

that's ridiculous, and not in a good way. <BR> <BR>nice job on the install though.

wakescene 04-24-2009 10:41 AM

I got a $1.00 that says those top tower speakers get moved in less than a week due to the fact that they will interfere with the riders rope! <BR> <BR>Impressive install?...YES (Great Job, Would like to see the amp rack too). <BR>Overkill???...HUGE YES <BR>To each his own???...Absolutely!

radikal 04-24-2009 10:44 AM

well honestly i just think its way CRAZY but in the good side, if i could afford that i would but i think id put another pair on that tower it look empty for my taste ! <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/rofl.gif" border=0>

wakeboardsam 04-24-2009 11:16 AM

NO IT IS NOT!! <BR> <BR>No one is that stupid. They are a dealer and they had the inventory so they decided to put all the inventory on one tower and take pictures. <BR> <BR>I just can't wait until it is on craigslist for $1,500.

magic 04-24-2009 11:17 AM

That's Chuck Norris' boat... It'll kick YOU off the lake.

tailgate 04-24-2009 11:24 AM

I thought that as well, let's take our inventory and put it all on one boat just to get kicks out of wakeworld... <BR> <BR>I would be scared to ride in that thing, hit your first d up and the support posts of that tower are going to snap.

wetsounds1 04-24-2009 11:24 AM

HAHA. Yes it is!!!! Ryan has been telling me about the boat as he has been working on it. I dont think any dealer has enough time to install all that for a picture. And dress out the speaker connectors too! <BR> <BR>Sean, that is classic. <BR> <BR>Tim <BR>Wet Sounds

sp0tts 04-24-2009 11:54 AM

I'm curious, how many watts are being run to each Pro 80 on that tower? 400?

kikitlo 04-24-2009 12:19 PM

Saw that boat out on the Delta 4-18-09, at least I think it was that boat. I mean how many other people are running 12 Wetsounds? Volume was low at the time so could not tell the potential but I could imagine.

wake77 04-24-2009 12:25 PM

That boat reminds me of this one that someone posted on another thread. <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/690123.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR> <BR>The notations were added by someone else.

hatepain 04-24-2009 12:57 PM

I can't stand all the hate it's stupid to sit and rip on somebody for their taste. Like it was said before to each his own. Tim's right we don't know this guy he may be great about playing his music when the time is right. G, good job you got it right. <BR> <BR>Ryan, I feel ya if someone's throwin' more cash at ya you take it. This is gotta be somewhere around a $35k system...crazy.

ryanbush11 04-24-2009 1:32 PM

where are the rest of the pics?

chucktronics 04-24-2009 3:08 PM

Too Funny!^^^^^^^ <BR> <BR>I agree that what's on the tower is excessive and not to my taste <BR> <BR>The customer approached me and wanted to be the loudest on the water(delta).My over the top design only consisted of having 4 pr. of pro 80's on the under side and nothing on top.Remember my job is to install and customize, and if the customer wants to pay for all the necc. additional bracing for that tower(mounts as well) and more product why would i deny the job to let someone else benefit from that. <BR> <BR>I find it humorous that people are judging the system based on the equipment solely on the tower. If the customer would have stuck with 6 or 8 pro 80's(still retarded),there would have been more attention to other details and things that can be learned. Instead, all focus is on the tower, How crazy is 4400 watts to (2) 10" subs ,where's the attention to that? <BR> <BR>Never the less, chucktronics is here to support and do a job ,not to judge. <BR> <BR>Ultimately the only person that has control of how annoying this boat can be is the owner and not chucktronics,we all know taste in music can ruin anything.

clayton191 04-24-2009 3:09 PM

are those speakers connected to each other --- maybe this is an elaborate hoax after all...

<font color="ff0000"> WOW</font>That is one heck of a system. It is not my taste but if they make you happy then heck it is your choice. Me I will run-away from the sound while I still have 97% of my hearing left. <BR> <BR>One question I do have is with all that weight on tower will it collapse when you inadvertently slam into a couple of killer waves at 25-35mph or what happens if you land up towing will rack withstand that weight on our super smooth highways and US Routes? <BR> <BR>Second question is since you have made the tower so top heavy has it affected handling? will the boat rollover? How much weight is on that tower. Forgive me if this has already been answered but who is the tower manufactured by?

benjaminp 04-24-2009 7:48 PM

In reference to the rope hitting speaker brackets, I dont know how far out you guys cut, but my rope is never in line with my tower, so its probably not a problem. Definately not my style, but my money is that you could knock a rider over with that cranked. Nice clean install job too.

cprfab 04-24-2009 8:34 PM

first off let me say this boat is completely real(Sam you're a jackass) and incredibly loud. The bass is ludicrous and sounds nothing like any two 10's i've heard before. The install is super clean and should not be set aside because no one can get passed the tower. I doubt there's an installer that could pull off this system in the short time span and make it sound this badass. My ears still hurt...thanks Ryan
