    Default Stereo Install... Installing speakers in mirrors

    Hi Everyone,

    Just bought a few skis for the summer and first time poster.The first thing I thought of after buying the 3 seat GTX was "where the hell am I going fit my tunes".. Over the last few weeks Ive searched and looked into all water proof speakers, amp and deck options. I almost went with the PWC $ystem, but there speakers wouldn't fit my mirrors and I don't want to cut into my ski to mount the speakers. So this is what I came up with and I snapped some pictures along the way, maybe give others some ideas... Feel free to chime in anytime.

    Components I chose for this install..


    3" Waterproof speakers used in Mirrors.. $50

    http://www.westmarine.com/webapp/wcs...110944&ci_sku=

    The MA-3013 3 round flush-mount speakers are great for installations where mounting space is limited. The waterproof MA-3013 feature a powder coated aluminum grill, low Magnetic Field and include mounting hardware and speaker wire.


    Clarion waterproof Head unit and amp... $190

    ** The reason I chose this unit is the usb option. I can fill a mini flash drive with thousands of sounds and plug it in, done. Am/FM too!

    Default Spotters?....

    Laws differ from State to State. Here, I thought I was good towing my tube with my spotter turned around backward, on the GTX. It has a foot hold built into the hull, just for this purpose. Last year, I got stopped because of my spotter. Here, it is illegal for a spotter to sit backward on the ski. The only way you can pull a tube with a ski is to have fixed mirrors with a total viewing area of 10 square inches. Seadoo must have researched this info because all their mirrors are over the required minimum (as far as I"ve seen anyway).

    I suggest anyone who is riding, pulling a tuber or wake, to pull up your local State laws on your computer. I was lucky, the dude let me go with a warning and a brochure of our local PWC laws. It wasn't even a month after I had bought it.....
    Looking for tips and advice, researched articles on carbs, spark plugs and general maintenance can be found at Snipes Korner. You can also follow me on "Twitter".

    Quality parts at low prices, visit Seadoowarehouse right here in our own forum. Please PM me if you are having a problem finding what you need!

    Is your jet ski fast? Do you want your XP or RXP to stand out? I know a place that has what you need to make it faster. Make your jetsksi a muscle craft, not just the ordinary, standard stock ski.

    Seen my GTX?... Those awesome graphics can be purchased from JetSki Detailing. Tell them Seadooforum sent you.

    Ever wonder what the inside of your 787cc engine looks like. Want to identify the parts, check out my thread on the 787. I'm sure there is something for everyone who want to learn about the internal parts.

    What would be there reasoning for tubing w/ earlier style seadoos, with no mirrors?

    It's plenty loud out front of the house but no lake run yet. I only have the one battery now, but am looking into adding a 2nd. Yes I did get the Ipod cable just came yesterday..

    very nice looking install!


    and in MD AFAIK the tubing law says we have to have someone facing backwards, and must be a 3seater, doesnt say anything about the mirrors.
