We are thankful for any client we have. We are most thankful for the clients that have used us, and had such a good experience that they continue to come to us for their audio needs. One such client owns this beautiful 24 foot Sportsman Masters bay boat. We worked on the boat when the client first got it, adding an amplifier and some subwoofers. This time the client wanted to come in for a Sportsman speaker upgrade, moving up to the M6 series of marine speakers by JL Audio.
Previous Sportsman Work
When the client first got this boat he immediately noticed the lack of bass it had. He made an appointment and dropped the boat off for a bass upgrade. We added two JL Audio M3 10″ subwoofers at the stern of the boat. To give us the clearance needed, we made a plate out of 1/2″ HDPE (also known as Starboard). To integrate the plate with the color scheme of the boat, we added a 1/4″ black acrylic plate below the HDPE plate. This white a black combination looked right at home on this Sportsman.
Sportsman Speaker Upgrade
At the time we were upgrading the bass, the client expressed the interest in also upgrading the speakers from the M3 series to M6 series. This was in the middle of the Covid pandemic and products were challenging to acquire. We placed the order with JL Audio for the speakers and began to wait. Many, many months later the speakers finally arrived and we scheduled the appointment to upgrade the speakers. The speaker upgrade went smoothly, as the JL speakers share the same basket size cutout. With the speakers replaced, we re-tuned the amplifiers to take advantage of the new speakers. The update for the boat was an improvement and the client was pleased with the work.
