Here is a video of my 2009 Mastercraft X-Star taking at Lake Tulloch last weekend. Grant had originally got me interested in these lights, and I decided to have Ben @ ACME Tops and Tunes do the install for me. I have 15 Cup holders and 6 Speakers lit up. Thank you again Ben @ ACME. I had a wonderful time on Lake Tulloch and had a great time hanging out with Grant and his wife, they were very kind and fun as well!

That looks impressive even on my monochrome monitor.

I stopped by Ben's shop when he was putting this together. I'm not sure how other guys do their LED's but Ben has one of the neatest production methods I have seen. His guys are both fast and meticulous and he gets very reliable and repeatable results.

Infact I was just talking to Ben about making me some rings for a non speaker project I am starting.

Lance- Congrats on a cool system....

Wow. Thanks Lance for putting up a great video! I've been so busy that another customer had to tell me about it being up on WakeWorld. I'm glad that we were able to accommodate the tight schedule to get it done in time for your trip to Tulloch. It took 2 techs plus myself some long hours to get it done but it was worth your reaction when seeing it the first time. Thanks for bringing it to Sacramento.

Yes both Dustin's and Lance's boats looked awesome. We linked up in a cove late at night all the boats had Blue Underwater lights we lit the hell out of the water.
When I was rolling out to hook up with them it was Dark, Dark, Dark, They were deep in a cove. We were not sure they were there. As we got closer I could see very high up in the Trees that they were lit up Blue. The underwater lights reflected the blue light 50 feet up into the trees. Im not sure you would get the effect standing right there on the boat but from a distance it was very clear.

To Answer Dave H's question IMO driving with RGB's going is a joke. So for surfing @ night they are not going to help you at all. In fact IMO any other color becides red is almost makes it worse. The under water light's could deffinatly add to your Night time surfing.
The RGB's or any after market lighting becides your nav light's should only be used for when your parked. With that said Yes the lights can bring your boat to life and open up a whole new time for you to play with your boat.
Many times I wanna go out at night just to party under the lights. For me the light's are a no Brainer and worth the cost I don't leave home with out them LOL. To you it might be a complete waste of money. I have yet to hear some one say they are Sorry they spent money on lights

Lights look sick Ben!!!

I have to agree with Grant about the RGB LED's. It is deff one of the coolest things I have spent my money on. When you are on the water @ night with them going it is a huge satisfaction. Like I said one of the things in my life that I'm still stoked I bought. It was deff on my top5 for being worth it. The only other forum I'm on is Pictures of my truck end up everywhere.
