I'm no audio specialist and my brother has asked me about speaker options for his boat. Figured you guys could help. He has a 21ft bass boat and the previous owner had cut out 6.5'"s in the seating area but the speakers were non waterproof Sonys that are destroyed. The previous owner also took out the head unit prior to him buying it. So essentially he has only two 6.5" spots to put a pair of speakers and no head unit at this point. He looked at this kit at West Marine today and liked the sound of them: http://www.westmarine.com/webapp/wcs...2#.UCvtEESlDtE
He doesn't mind spending a decent amount of $ on the system, he just wants it loud, crisp and clear when running down the lake. He wants something that performs well on low end as well since he does not have room for a subwoofer. I told him he may do better with WetSounds since they are all the rage with audio specialists and are waterproof. I haven't heard any Wet Sounds interior speakers though, just the tower speakers.
Also, he isn't interested in CD, USB or AM/FM radio. Basically he'll be running his iPhone for his iTunes music and Pandora, Slacker, etc. internet radio. I told him he may not even need a "head unit" of sorts, just an amplifier with direct input of iPhone audio. He said that sounded good, but wants a volume controller so he doesn't have to control volume with his phone all the time. He would mount amp in passenger side console and keep iPhone cord and iPhone in the glove box passenger side. Needs volume control at driver's dash area. Could you guys provide your recommendations preferably with links to good buys on this equipment?
