supposedly there is an update to the 2018 boats that will allow you to use aftermarket amps and retain zone control through the screen. My dealer is also saying that with this update you will now have full control of the zones through the transom remote as well. Anybody else hearing anything like this?

Only thing I can guess, is that they kept the DSP, and specifically used the JL VX series amps because they have a broad range for acceptable analog input signal.

Would be nice to get the specific details from hydrotunes....
In my experience, unless youíre buying from them, they donít care.

In RE to the polk amp question. My point was that just because the polk label falls under ASA as Klipsch does, it has no better or worse chance or working, as any other amp.
Why would they process the sound in the amps AND the DSP? That usually leads to all kinds of problems. Maybe they have a mini-USB port inside.

Is there any way that you can share any kind of info for those of us who are too far away to use your services?

We could really use your help here........

If there is a setup that we can use to improve the factory system, and retain full touchscreen control, there would be quite a lot of us that would be very thankful for your help......

I now have aftermarket JL amps for my Rev 10 tower speakers working really well. I still need to find an ignition controlled wire for the remote circuit though. I didnít want to use the one out of the dsp for fear of overloading the circuit. I also re-powered the factory Klipsch subs with a JL HD750/1 I had laying around to hear how they sounded with more power. My initial impression was louder and more full.
