Default Upgrading stereo- Fusion AV750?

I'm looking to upgrade the stereo on my new to me 36' Tiara
and need some THT help on my best option. Right now I have a JVC DV5500 head unit just inside the cabin. It works fine with the TV for watching DVD's, but I need more zone control, NMEA 2000 connectivity, bluetooth, etc.

I'd like to have 4 zones and have independent control of each. I'm thinking the Fusion AV750 is the way to go. Bluray would be nice, but then I'd have to use a home dvd player and would probably go with a UV750 instead. Does JL MM100 compare to these Fusions?
Zones:
1. Cabin -6.5"x2 speakers hooked to TV (powered by head unit)
2. Tower -not sure on speakers yet (powered by head unit)
3. Helm - 6.5'x4 (Wetsounds HT-4, wired in parallel)
4. Cockpit - 8"x2 (Wetsounds HT-4)

If I use both pairs of RCA inputs on the HT-4 will I be able to control them as zones 3&4 via the AV750?
Can I control the zones with the Fusion Link app on my phone?

Thanks!

I havn't used that exact amp but if it has 4 RCA in plugs each wil be its own channel so yes you will have split zone 3 and 4. It probably also has a parellel switch to make all 4 channels off 2 rcas. Which needs to be left off to work.

Though if you are running 6 big speakers off a 4 channel? may be best to get a 2nd amp anyways. Depends on power of that amp

The 750 is great with 4 zones. You can change volumes from deck, app, chart plotter, and the fusion remotes

The uni docks are nice too mount below if you get the DVD one. The adapter ones suck.

You would be better off running one of the sets of 6.5in off the head unit rather than the tower speakers. Better to get established one side or the other then build s you need to properly accommodate

Not sure exactly what you meant in the last sentence above. My thought was to try and power all of the deck speakers (helm + cockpit) off the Ht-4 if possible. Do you mean I may need more power than head unit for the tower for wind noise, etc? If that's the case I have another Ht-4 or a JL MXH280 I can add if needed.

Do you agree the UV750 is the best choice for a head unit out there for me?

Thanks

Yes I do agree with the MSUD750 as being the way to go for you. What I meant was to determine either what speakers or what amps you will have and select the products to best match.


I would suggest running both of the HT4 Wet Sounds amps for your application. You can give me a call tomorrow if you would like 410-443-8555

Fusion AV750 it is then. Brian, I'll call later for speaker/amp thoughts, etc. later, appreciate it.

Do you think bluetooth will still work ok if installed just inside cabin entryway?
