Anybody catch the show on OLN last night called Rock the Boat. It was like an Overhaulin' or Rides show for boat stereo's. They built a custom boat for ARC Audio. It was an Ultra cigarette style boat, but it was pretty sweet when they finished with it. Grant needs to get in touch with them, and have them give Sound Illusions a shot at building a huge system in a wakeboarding boat. No budget, just go for it.

Joe U took this photo at the LA boat show.

I have seen the show. I dont know if that's how the installers realy are or the show makes them out to be a coupple of Joker's, If you watch the series they get fire'd later in the series. The quality of the work they show looks good and I respect them for that. I do wonder how they had that mess up with the ARC audio boat. For a company that builds custom boats for a living and knew about all the equipment and weight that was going into that boat BEFORE they started I wonderd why they were dumb founded when it wouldnt get on plain due to to much stereo equipment. And taking out the battery's to fix the problem didnt seem like the best soulition.
Just another thing you have to think about when taking your boat to get a big system installed. Where is all thins equipment going? How will it effect your boats performance/wake. We all know how sencitive a few hunderd pound's on one side of your boat can make it handle like crap.
In fact thats like the 5th boat I have seen that after a Install shop threw a monster stereo in the boat, It wouldnt get out of the water. LOL
Just think what a jack ass you would feel like. You get you boat back for the stereo shop and your system is PIMPED out you drop it in the water and try to take off but your boat's dragging butt in the water or leaning to one side because of un-balanced equipment. LAME.

DK makes a Bas As_ boat!! Well not totally functional but certainly over kill! The boat belongs to the owner of Arc Audio!!

Also ARC makes a marine line of speakers and their Amps are top notch!!

I APPRECIATE THE COMPLEMENTS, THANK YOU. GRANT, I CAN SEE YOUR CONCERNS. LET ME ME JUST SAY THAT CABE AND JASON ARE REAL COOL GUYS, BUT ACTUALLY DID NOT COMPLETE MUCH WORK ON THE BOAT. THERE WAS A TON OF MADE UP DRAMA AND B.S. IN THE SHOW. I wish the stereo system was played up more. There was a ton of thought put into equipment layout and placement. The boat stupid loud. If anyone gets a chance to see the boat, its worth looking at. Joe , thanks for the kind words and I look forward to working on your X2. Im sure that Jerry Ponte will soon be posting pics of his X2. Grant I wanted to say thanks for your comments about a boat that we did a few years back, Seans Toyota Epic. Thanks, Scott @ Kustom Kar Audio

Scott: Game Reconize Game

How is Kustom Kar related to "Rock the Boat".

Shawn's boat was a major inspration for me getting into boat audio. When I saw his boat I was pretty blown away, You guys did a awesome job on his system. To this day I dont think I have seen a system like his. I guess Shawn was about 5 years ahead of his time. Now everyone is stuffing subs into boats. I think Shawn should bring his old system out of retierment.LOL.
Shawn's old system

ARC audio is a local company they should bring that boat up to the Spring Ride Boat Show. Ill have the website up soon.
I would love to see and hear that thing.

Speaking of functionality,

How does one get in and out of that Yota without drenching the system?

there is a step in the middle of the box and usually keep a giant towel over the subs when they are not turned on.

my 0.02:

i thought that arc audio ultra 28 stealth was the stupidest thing on the water. even if i had funds like that i wouldn't do that. i'd rather them put a new MercRacing 1075SCi and No.6 drive on the stern than that atrocious stereo.

Mad Child: You are correct. That was stupid for a guy that own's a Moble Audio company to build a boat to showcase all his equipment and drum up intrest about his company. Yea I dont know what he was thinking.

He should have taken your advice and built another go fast boat, Im sure we would all be talking about it right now.

Nice workmanship but it looks totally GAY. How useless is that set up in a boat. So im guessing that boat seats 2-3 people huh.

i'm sure i'm going to get slapped upside the head for this, but what is OLN?

is rock the boat a one-off show, or a series?

Outdoor Life Network

i remember a thread a couple months ago where everyone was ripping on a malibu vlx that had a huge system in it(i believe it was skylons boat).. the rear trunks were filled with 15's it had about 8 amps mounted under the passenger seats.. when i walked into the pleasanton boat show that was the first thing i noticed.. i ran up to it all excitied.. only to find out they had removed all the subs(maybe it was a different boat but all the amps were the same).. all the amps were still there though..i was thinking they pulled half the system cause everyone was giving them so much crap.. i love it when people show off what they can do and take it to the extreme! even if its over the top and impractical there is always something you can take from it.. the world would be so boring if no one pushed these types of things to the limit!

Richard you need to look at it as a art form and enjoy it .
Old    mendo247            02-03-2006, 5:39 PM Reply   
joe- trust me i love it when people go off on projects like this, I was just trying to say i dont think its right to say anything negative about anyone elses projects.. we all have different tastes, if you like it praise it, if you dont keep it to yourself.. it just doesnt seem right to me to come on here and tell someone there setup is "GAY"! personally i think it looks bad a**! id sport that system in my boat anyday! I just dont like it when people hate on others peoples projects(read my profile quote)lol

Our X 2 is in Livermore getting the heater fixed and chrome exhaust ports installed , I called Udi today to see when I can pick it up and deliver it to Kustom Kar but didnt hear back. I got the tower speakers last week and picked up the mounts at the boat show . I wish it was here today because it would have been on .
