2010 Chattwake Super Air Nautique 230 Team Edition
6 Attachment(s)
Here's the new www.chattwake.com boat.
2010 Super Air Nautique 230 Team Edition
Basically every option except for full throttle
6 wetsounds xs-650 interior speakers
2 wetsounds Pro 485's
1 wetsounds XXX 12'' sub
1 wetsounds ws420 eq
2 wetsounds syn 2 amps
1 wetsounds syn 1 amp
2 XS Power Batteries 3100 series AGM batteries (fits in factory 230 footprint)
z5 rack
Tandem Boatmate trailer w/ 18'' KMC Rockstars
2 1000lb fly high ultimate surf sacs (fill up the rear hatches over factory ballast)
1 fly high triangle bow sac (I didn't want to lose the storage in the front with the integrated sac)

Tell me what you guys think! I'm stoked with how it turned out. Thanks to the guys at TRC Yachtsales in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Wetsounds, XS Power Batteries, and Boatmate for hooking it up fat once again.

I know that there are folks with some pretty crazy stereos out there, with alot more amps and speakers than I've got, but I couldn't be any happier with the way this particular wetsounds setup sounds both in the boat and while riding.

Realy, really nice looking set up. Those towers have officially grown on me.

crosenhahn 05-24-2010 11:28 AM

Man, I really want one of those boats!!! Lookin Awesome!

l_b 05-24-2010 11:37 AM

Sweet. Not a better lookin boat out there.

migs 05-24-2010 11:37 AM

Soooo tight!!!! congrats Chattwake - I think thats the best one soo far...
What motor you runnin under the hood?
I like that steering wheel - is that your own wheel you swapped with the MOMO?

chattwake 05-24-2010 11:44 AM

I've got the ZR409.

The wheel is something I saw on a 210 at www.n3boatworks.com. It's made by Nardi - some hand crafted italian job. The bolt holes match the factory holes on the steering hub. I wanted a black windshield (you get a polished windshield with the full throttle package), but I wanted something other than the base steering wheel so I picked up a bushed finish nardi wheel. I love the look and it's great for driving because it's skinnier than the oem wheels. I can see the gps much better.

migs 05-24-2010 11:48 AM

agreed on the black windshield - i noticed that - pops out with the all white - nice touch.
sick man - real sick!!! cant wait to see that thing on the water.

bruizza 05-24-2010 12:04 PM

That thing is so sick on so many levels!!

slipknot 05-24-2010 12:20 PM

SIC SIC SIC Tom, will it be at the Party Cove next weekend?

jeff_mn 05-24-2010 12:20 PM

I couldn't love that anymore than I do.

mvanhove 05-24-2010 12:20 PM

Love the look of the two WS 485's. Everything else is real nice too!

silvermustang35 05-24-2010 12:22 PM

Looks slick man!

chattwake 05-24-2010 12:28 PM

Thanks guys!

Hairbandude - unfortuntately, (or fortunately - depends on how you look at it), I'm going to be in Cancun for a week with my wife's family from Saturday to Saturday, so I won't be out locally for Memorial Day. :(

Chat, sick sick sick. I love the white boat with blacked out rims. Thanks for the support of Wet Sounds. If you are on facebook, jump on our page and post the pics. I am sure others would love to see it.

The 485 pair looks like they were made for that tower. They flow so well with the lines and the shape

Nicely done! The black trailer really lets the boat "pop" out.

dizzy8085 05-24-2010 2:40 PM

thats sick.

jonyb 05-24-2010 2:41 PM


Looks good though Chad.

mendo247 05-24-2010 3:23 PM

Dude... Thats nice..

chattwake 05-24-2010 4:59 PM


I'll tell you one thing, the install was not bad at all for everything I put in. The xs-650's dropped right in the factory holes with no cutting, drilling, etc. It's so funny that one xs650 weighs more than four of the stock polks. The interior speakers absolutely slam in the cabin. Also, I simply cannot believe how much bass that XXX produces when driven by that syn1. Sitting in the spotter's seat with Throw It Up playing makes your damned teeth rattle.

I can't wait to get some pics of the boat early one morning sitting on some glass with the friggin water rippling around the hull from the bass. Guys, I've been a car audio freak as long as I can remember, and for one 12 in an open air environment, the XXX sub really surprised me with its performance. It's like comparing a set of 485's to factory tower speakers.

The ws420 is an absolute must have too in order to controll speaker levels and crossover settings on the fly.

Getting the 485's to fit with a z5 on the FCT3 is a bit tricky, but you can obviously do it. If anyone needs to know what I did to make them work, just pm me.

Thanks for all the compliments guys, I'm just stoked to have a boat again!

bjeremi 05-24-2010 5:07 PM

Always jealous of the new chattwake ride

elc 05-24-2010 5:15 PM

wow... awesome setup.

wakecumberland 05-25-2010 7:44 AM

Beautiful boat! I am partial to all white! I think tinting the windows would really set it off.

Looks like you could use a hitch that didn't have quite as much drop to it. From the angle of the picture hooked to the rig, its sittiin pretty low at the tounge.

wakereviews 05-25-2010 7:48 AM

Very sweet setup! Congrats!!

chattwake 05-25-2010 7:55 AM

I agree, I need a 3'' drop instead of a 5''

dellagucci 05-25-2010 11:06 AM

dude that is freakn beautiful. i envy your boat.

mastercraf 05-25-2010 11:42 AM

White tower is sick! Nice setup you got!

mc_x15 05-25-2010 1:06 PM

Very classy. Really like it.

wetsounds1 05-25-2010 3:34 PM


I hear you on the XXX. I wish everyone could hear the new demo boat and what dual XXX sound like. We metered the boat and it hits 150dB. This is louder than competetion car spl systems with walls of woofers in a sealed car. All in an open air boat!!

Got to do the video. I am going to take some this weekend. The RZ2 will make the water look like it's boiling becuase of the bass.

jonyb 05-25-2010 5:44 PM

I've got the 2 XXX and Syn1 combo in my boat. Anyone in the Western KY area is welcome to stop by and hear it. They're unbelievable....

loudontn 05-25-2010 8:54 PM

Sick as always Tom, well played.

on_board_wakeboarding 05-25-2010 10:18 PM

What a strange mirror is there on the windshield? New brand?

loudontn 05-26-2010 3:59 AM

Is that a wood grain steering wheel? Fantastic.

bmr82 05-26-2010 4:06 AM

Geeze, talk about ruining a guys day. I finally get to leave the desert today and all my clothes are packed. I see this pick and bam! Pants are ruined.

Just kidding, but that is a sweet looking ride.

chattwake 05-26-2010 5:36 AM

Thanks guys! I appreciate all the comments. I thought the white/white combo was a bit risky, but it turned out great. This is my favorite boat so far. I just hope I can keep it clean!

wakecumberland 05-26-2010 6:10 AM

If you were able to keep the black clean, you'll have no problem with white!

chris4x4gill2 05-26-2010 8:18 AM

Great looking setup. Very slick.

crfdude86 05-27-2010 5:24 PM

Very nice!! Love the rockstars on the trailer. Ever consider tinting your windshield?

tdc_worm 05-27-2010 6:12 PM


quick question...is an SPL measurement in a boat really comparable to those measured in SPL comps, at certain burst frequencies, w/ the db mic set on the car's dash or driver's seat? just seams like no an analogous anecdote...
