I heard a tale... Mrs. Gates was asked if there was any problem being married to the richest man in America. She replied, "All my friends have iPhones and Bill won't let me get one."
I don't know what Mrs. White would say.

Who's Tim White?

I'm assuming the Tim White you guys are talking about is Tim White from Wetsounds, correct? And I also assume that Wetsounds is going public, correct?

It's a joke and I'm assuming/guessing that Pro 60/80's are now the most oft ordered speaker sox.

Ok, you got me. Not going public, but you are right hate, I'm sure they are up there in terms of how much product they move. Just got a chance to test out my 3-some for the first time yesterday-with a syn 6 amp-UNREAL! The guys could hear everything clearly. They make a great product, no doubt.

I don't think anyone would want to see Wetsounds go public - it might make the owner rich - but you would likely loose all that make the company great - once you are public - it's all about profit. Right now - it seems that Tim is running the company with a passion for a great product and 1st class customer service - how many public companies do that? Too many good companies sell too many shares - and eventually loose control of the company.

Hate, it is stupid loud, like almost obnoxious. I don't crank it unless I have a wide berth on the lake.

Yeah I just got to test out my pro 80's I hope to add the 485 in a month or so. I must have had 15 people come ask me about my system at the sand bar. Crazy loud and clear thanks Tim

AMO, how about pics?
Old     (amo)      Join Date: Jan 2009       05-25-2009, 7:24 PM Reply   
Michael, I would love to, but I am completely retarded when it comes to loading that stuff on the computer. Where can I find instructions on posting pics?

I will say this for the setup, very light for how big they are, and ZERO tower sway.

Michael, haven't heard back yet from the guys at intracoastal products on the over the tower whole boat cover. He still has to build the template for the pickle fork X-Star last I heard.}

Here you go. They put in a capacitor instead of a third battery.

The boys at Midwest MC do great work. If you get this setup get the speaker socks. Keeps them clean and there is no difference in sound quality, at least to my ear.

Amo, just a heads up. A Capacitor is only a band-aid. It's not meant to help w/ long term playing. Only short term music spikes, and even then, only b/c something isn't set-up correctly. If your stereo is set-up correctly you shouldn't need one, nor should you want one. Just size your batteries and wiring accordingly, and you'll be much happier.

I love my Pro 80's! The WS-420 on the other hand, I am very disappointed with. After 2.5 weeks of use it was completely shot. Now its been about a 2 week process between my dealer checking internal fuses and now finally sending it down to Texas.

Amo, thats a sick setup! Congrats man.

Nick, be patient as everyone has a bad one every once in a while. I have had mine for a while and love it. You will to when they get a you a good one.....
Old     (amo)      Join Date: Jan 2009       05-26-2009, 7:14 AM Reply   
Tanner, thank you, that's what they told me as well. I don't do party coves so the third battery was not needed. I just wanted something to protect the amps from surges and the weird occasional power issues.

Thanks Nick, thanks Michael.

Nick, I wanted the WS-420 as well but was told it was unnecessary for what I use the boat for. I have a base control under dash mounted and a speaker dial; I can select all speakers or just the tower.

I'm sure you just got the one bad one out of a hundred. If I've learned anything on this site, it's that Tim White is "johnny on the spot" with issues like this.

wow, base control and speaker dial under dash is brilliant. my x-star is an 04 so i am storing these ideas for a new boat next year!!! i just wonder if there is anybody in the NY/NJ area that understands boats to do the work.

I too have helped Tim buy a house on some exotic island somewhere:
12 pro 80's
2 ws 420's
syn 2 amp
Worth ever penny!

AMO - Killer install. Who did the work and kept it that clean and out of the way? I'm impressed. Makes my DIY rats-nest look really embarrassing.
Old     (amo)      Join Date: Jan 2009       05-27-2009, 6:09 AM Reply   
Thanks Robert. The boys at Midwest Mastercraft in Crystal, Minnesota did the work. They make everything look like you got it from the factory that way. No way in hell I could do that!

Awesome. I know the guys up there but had no clue they did stereo install in-house at that level. Good to know!

AMO - wish you'd get more handy posting pics. Nice. And the boat's sweet too. What other cool accessories or add-ons you got on that? Show us some more.

is wetsounds a great audio system? ive had a crappy upgraded clarion system with 2 amps and a 10 inch sub but my speakers crack everytime i turn the base up and im looking to replace my system what do you guys recommend
Old     (amo)      Join Date: Jan 2009       05-27-2009, 4:25 PM Reply   
Mike, there are lots of different ways to go stereo wise. Do you have a price point? What are you looking to accomplish with the system? I am partial to wetsounds, but there are other brands out there that are awesome. NVS, polk, Kicker, JL, just to name a few.

Thanks jb, haha, that was my first time posting pics, wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be. I really don't have anything else stereo wise other than what you guys see in the pics. I have an xtra JL 10" free air sub as well. I love the system, very clear at low volume levels as well as high levels.
