About a year ago, when we did some work for Jesse, we discussed upgrading the audio system in his Yeti Extreme ice fishing house. We jotted down some notes and when Jesse came in over a recent holiday weekend, we reviewed the plans and scheduled a time to move forward with the project.
This unit previously had a radio in it, but it sounded really bad, both inside and outside the house. Some of the problems had to do with the lower-grade equipment and some had to do with the wiring, so we planned to upgrade the radio and rewire parts of the audio system to allow him to enjoy the audio system to its fullest, both inside and outside the house. The radio of choice is a Sony MEX-M100BT, which we highlighted in a great article HERE.
We needed a few critical things from the new radio.
1) A marine-grade unit. The marine-grade protection is always recommended in these situations.
2) More power – and not just any power: We wanted clean, distortion-free power so he could get more volume out of his speakers.
3) A wireless remote.
4) Streaming Bluetooth so he could play music from his smartphone.
5) The ability to play the audio from the TV system through the stereo.
The Sony was the obvious choice. We rewired the system so the client can run all the inside or outside speakers independently – separately or concurrently – and they all sound great. With the built-in crossovers, the music is now crisp and clear.
