I had easy access to the bottom of the boat (underskin was removed for Sea Leg install) and wanted to guarantee full power to the head unit and sub (have the 10” RF) so I ran the dedicated wiring. Good to know it works off the factory wire as well.
I believe I ran 12 gauge back to the deep cycle. Don’t remember specifically how I wired it but can shut it off with the ACC switch and still preserve the head unit memory so I didn’t have to redo Bluetooth settings, etc. every time.
I cut off a set of short Veve guides and put covers on them. I mounted them immediately in front of the trailer axle. (The vertical lines in the side view pic). They are tall enough to limit the movement but not so tall I can’t float over them.
Picked my boat up at the dealer (serviced & wrapped) on Saturday and they had this QX in the showroom. First time I've ever seen one in person...Holy Crap what a beautiful boat! However, my wife does not have the new boat itch....not that I could afford this one.
I’ve done quite a bit of wiring on our boat over the last couple of years and have found it easiest to work in the console. Also highly recommend you get your hands on the schematic for your boat. Very helpful in understanding how the boat was originally wired.
This one is a 2017 MXZ X 850 Etec which will be paired with my old sled which is a 2012 MXZ X 600 Etec. Love the Doo’s!! Agreed on the 900 ACE turbo but they are crazy spendy right now. It’s what my buddy calls “tweener” season where it’s too cold to boat and too warm to sled. I’m excited to...
