Thread: Speaker question - '14 RZ2

    Speaker question - '14 RZ2

    For the past 2-3 years I've had speaker issues but not being a audio guru (and 5 hours away from a dealer) I'm hoping for some help on a few things I might be able to do myself ('14 RZ2 w/2 larger tower speakers + sub and 4 speakers in back and 2 in front).

    1 - Every time I start the boat and start playing music (using bluetooth and my phone for songs), the 2 front speakers are extremely fuzzy and make listening to the music unbearable so what I've found that works is; I crank the music to almost max volume and eventually (within a a couple seconds) the fuzz goes away and I can turn the volume down and everything is good to go. I turn the master batteries switch off after each time we use the boat (too many battery issues over the years)

    2 - people who sit at the back of the boat always say the music is too loud but myself driving and anyone sitting opposite of me think its not loud at all, is there a way to put a little less out of the tower speakers and more out of the lower speakers

    3 - I only use bluetooth but the audio input never starts in the AUX1 (where Bluetooth works) and I have to press on the button to get it to AUX1 but its frustrating as that touch button rarely works and I end up pressing it 12-15 times to get it to move to the right input which is only 3-4 presses away from the preset input. Anyway of changing it so it always come up in the correct input that I use?

    Appreciate the help!

    1) is this only on BT or CD and tuner as well?

    2) try fade at the dead unit. Crude, but can work if the RCA are configured right. Next best option is a simple marine daul zone like the Kicker ZXM-RLC. Next up from that would the Wet Sounds WS-420SQ 3-zone volume controller or the WS-220 4-zone controller.

    3) Likely due to that being the default mode after battery is disconnected then restored. Sounds like the snap button is getting weak. Try going right to the head in the glove box and hitting the source button there.

    1 - I've only ever used Bluetooth audio (no radio where I am and whats a CD? lol)
    2 - are these easy to self install? Not looking to drive my boat on rock roads to bring it in for an audio issue if I don't have to and I've lived with my issue until now so highly doubt I'll ever make a specific trip for these issues but maybe a DIY if its some what easy.
    3 - never thought of using the head unit to switch input, thanks I'll try that next time!

    Easy way to fix your tower speakers, take ‘em off. That’s what I did. Works great.
    You'll get your chance, smart guy.
