Sweet Sounds in Mankato is your destination for the ultimate in ice fishing house upgrades. Whether you call it an ice fishing shanty, a fish shack, fish house or an ice house, we have functionality, security and entertainment upgrades available for all of them.
Sound System Upgrades
When it comes to your ice fishing house, sound system upgrades follow the same path as a car, truck or even an RV. A client recently dropped off his Mille Lacs Ice Castle RV Edition for a stereo upgrade. We started the installation with four Memphis MXA62 coaxial speakers in the ceiling. We added the LXALEDSP2 20-color LED accents to the grilles. We had to remove several trim panels to wire the speakers and the lighting system properly, but it was well worth the effort. To complement the speakers and bring the system to life, we added an MXA10D4 subwoofer, also with LED lighting. The sub takes care of reproducing bass, so the small speakers don’t have to work as hard, and everything sounds better.
A Sony MEX-GS610BT head unit with CD, Bluetooth and USB serves as the source for the entertainment system. We mounted a Memphis MXA5750 amplifier at the back corner of a storage locker. As you can see, all of the wiring has been loomed carefully and routed neatly. The options for upgrading your audio system in your ice house are almost limitless. We cover it all.
Video & Camera System Upgrade Options
Another option is a multimedia receiver so that you can watch a movie while waiting for the fish to bite. We can add external cameras so you can keep an eye on what is going on outside without having to venture out into the cold. These same high-quality cameras are available for your tow vehicle as well. A backup camera system makes it much easier to hook up a trailer and adds safety when maneuvering into a parking space. We can even mount a camera on the back of your ice fishing house that will display an image in the tow vehicle. Our installation team uses weather-resistant quick-connectors with dummy plugs to ensure reliable operation, even when exposed to the road salt used during the winter.
LED Lighting Upgrades
LED lighting is another of our popular ice house upgrades. LEDs are very efficient and provide more than ample illumination without taxing the battery or generator. We can install soft white lighting or amp things up with RGB (multi color) lighting like the system we used in the Ice Castle. Interior and exterior solution are available.
Protect Your Belongings with a Security System
You can use your smartphone to control our ice house alarm systems. Even if you are 100 miles away, you’ll always know what’s going on. We custom design each system with the right sensors and switches to ensure we protect every access point. In addition, low battery alerts can be sent to your phone to inform you when your batteries need a charge.
Taking the smart phone system to the next level, several clients have asked us to configure the system to start their generator automatically to keep the batteries charged. We can also add the ability for you to fire up the heater or furnace remotely so the house will be warmed up when you arrive.
