Zone Control now available for model year 2018 boats with Klipsch Advanced Audio

For model year 2018 MasterCraft boats equipped with the Klipsch Advanced Audio package*, you can now add Zone Control functionality with an optional dealer installed retrofit kit.

With this upgrade, you will have independent volume control for the different zones in the boat directly from the Klipsch head unit (Bow, Cockpit, Tower & Sub). This retrofit kit is a combination of software updates to the Klipsch head unit, a new DSP profile and a special interface cable.

This retrofit kit is available now through the MasterCraft dealer network. Contact your dealer for pricing and installation.

*Klipsch Advanced Audio packages consist of both the Klipsch head unit and DSP. Zone Control cannot be added to base audio packages.

Im trying to run all interior speakers(cockpit and bow) on one zone and my towers on the other.
Getting zone bleed through as we currently have it wired but looking for a simple explanation /wiring chart as Im not a big stereo wiring guy. Have a 200w amp wired to interiors and a 400 w amp to the 4 tower speakers.
Heres my head unit I have.

Questions and comments not specific to the Klipsch system should be placed in other threads, or new threads.
Even your XT series did not have Zone Control?
I thought it was an NXT series limitation?
Did any 2018 Models have full Zone Control?

Premium Audio package (touch screen systems) had Zone Control for 2018 at launch. Zone Control was included with Advanced Audio package beginning with model year 2019. This retrofit adds it to Advanced Audio package for model year 2018.
