Lets put this in perspective a little. The recording equipment isn't going to come close to capturing the full dynamic range up close. On the other hand the recording device increases the gain and increases the compression with distance as the sound source is farther away. So the whole recording thing is by no means a representation of what you would hear in person. Try it again with someone talking loudly right next to the mic and see how that impacts the stereo sound at a distance. That would be far more authentic.
Now sound travels forever on a quiet lake at night when the water is glass. You can hear the details of a conversation out on the lake for a great distance. On a choppy day the turbulance and the numerous boat exhausts plus with the waves defracting the sound, a loud stereo gets lost to a great degree. So as much as I hate to be a buzz kill, it just isn't as big of a deal as the video suggests.

I agree on this one. It's great if your music is loud and clear. What *** is when you and your family is taking a break and listing to your own music and some other guy comes by and drowns your music out and the kids hear some vulgur crap.

curtious and respect for others on the water, kinda like lake lice.....

Thumbs up

I bet if you played a different genre of music the video would have been better recieved. Some examples: AC/DC-> Hells Bells, Highway to Hell, Beastie Boys->Paul Revere, Lowrider, Metallica -> One, A Perfect Circle-> Judith

Nice boat and system

I'll have the music on, you'll be able to hear it and still carry on a conversation at the same time
Can I wakeboard or will you lecture me on that too =D

I've got an older 4 channel Sound Stream TRA960.4 that does a good job. I just haven't been able to justify buying a couple of Arc KS300.2 to match the Arc KS 900.6 that run the JL inboats and the sub. Still running the stock sub and it's not good at all.

Loved those sound stream amps. That is one huge amp though haha...

What boat is that?

I have a couple higher end subs as well as the dimensions for the bow filler box if you are interested.
