I have a 1989 ski nautique 2001. I have 4 ws pro80s running off a syn2. I used it all last summer and it worked perfect! I have a 1000A cranking battery and a 6mnth old optima d34 running off a Perko switch.

I just bought 4 Polk db651s for the inboat speakers and would like to power them with a syn6 so I can also run a ws XS-12..

My boat has a 60amp alternator and I'm just wondering if I should be thinking about another battery or larger alternator with this set up!!

As a matter of safety, every boat IMO should have two batteries. It's cheap insurance. Me personally, on your setup I woudln't run a third unless you run the stero ALOt with the motor off. FYI...running a wet battery and an AGM ( Optima) thru the same switch is not recommended.

Yes, I would upgrade to at least a 90/105 amp alt. If that 60 amp is original, it's not gonna last much longer with 2 decent size amps pulling on it. And to be honest, 60 amps seems high for a boat of that year...I would have guessed 35 amp. did you have it bench tested?

I barely ever run my boat with the engine off and the tunes on and if it is, it will only be real quiet just listening ton tunes on the dock.

I am only going by what my manual says, saying 55 or 60amp alternator, can't quite remember cause it's in storage. I have never had it bench tested though and last summer was kinda the trial to see if my alt would crap out and it never did..

What's the issue running those 2 different batteries

I was also wondering if anyone has had good luck with the Frequency Remotes from Alpine? I was looking at the hardwired MC10 but this might be a better option instead of drilling holes into my boat

If I am thinking of the same remote, I know someone that has a RF remote. He absolutely loves his. It is a waterproof remote and he has it on a floating keychain.

He will jump in the water with it and just float around the boat to change songs and the volume.

I think he just had to learn how to swim with a beer in one hand and the remote in the other
