Jim I have a customer of ours that is interested in the bar that you posted. They are salt water wake borders and very active. What is the warranty on the bar and are there any fine print exclusions to the warranty? I will have the call you to order if they decide to go for it.

Wet Sounds stands behind their products better than any brand we carry. No fine print in their warranty. Luckily we rarely have to test it.

It is a one year written warranty, but if something turns out to be defective they will stand by it for longer than that. In fact, you might be seeing some news soon about their warranty. Wet Sounds warrantees their OEM installations for 3 years. You normally are never at a loss for words about Wet Sounds warranty. Alzheimer's setting in?

Ok I will let him know it is a 1 year unrestricted warranty and send him your way. Is that the same for all wet sounds products? I am glad that they stepped up.

can you post some pictures of the soundbar installed and how its attached to the t-top and how you guys ran the wire?

in terms of how the bar sounds how would the stealth 10 compare to a typical 6.5 speaker? i guess what im asking is how many 6.5 speakers would equal the output of the stealth 10?

The boat has already gone so i can't take any close-ups. But we mounted this using the included brackets which go on the end of the soundbar. These are notched out to fit a rail. We drilled a hole through the t-top rail and attached these brackets. The brackets allow the sound bar to be raised or lowered a few inches and to rotate up or down, or even all the way forward.

The power cable runs out of the end of the sound bar and directly into a T-Top leg. So only a few inches of cable is visible. It basically plugs into 12V and you are done. This customer will connect to it via Bluetooth and play Pandora or whatever.

Hard to gauge the sound output since it is all blasting in one direction. But if I had to compare I'd say it is about the same as a pair of high quality unamplified speakers. Like 2 JL MX650's or 2 Wet Sounds SW-65's. The Stealth10 puts out a little more sound. Somewhere between the Stealth6 and an amplified pair of speakers.
