Just finished with the system install in my "2001". I used components laying around my garage, so please don't knock the quality. I pretty much had to start from scratch as this boat did not have any sort of stereo in it at all. I will probably end up redoing the entire thing later this year when I replace the carpet, but for the time being...it rocks hard. I plan to get a couple of cans for the pylon in the near future.
Overall, I am pleased and it only took a couple of days working a couple of hours at night with the help of my 3 year old. She was a champ at helping me pull the power wires through the cable tubes.
Jason...exactly. The baffle that the HU is mounted to is screwed to the face of the sub box. I should of known it would do that. There wasn't many places to mount the thing w/o cutting glass. The radio and mp3 player should work for the time being.
Now I just need to find the remote.
And semi-auto ballast next. I just picked up one of those Rule 2000 bilge pumps at Academy yesterday for $49. I need to find that thread where the guy converted it for use with the sacs.
Brandon, I am not too familar with the 2001s but it looks like you could make some brackets that would allow it to mount under the dash, again I don't know if thats a viable idea, but one worth considering if you haven't already
The dash is pretty thin. I thought about making some bracketry to cantilever it off of the support under the dash, but what I did was way easier and faster for the time being. I was trying to avoid drilling any unnecessary holes in the dash if I did not have to.
