2007 Nautique 236
Hydrotunes performed a full audio system update in this 07 Nautique Boats 236. We replaced the OEM headunit and helm remote with a Clarion marine setup, to add Bluetooth & USB capability, while maintaining control from the driver’s helm location. We also flush-installed a Wet Sounds equalizer in the interior hull panel below the throttle, to provide zone volume control & PA mic over tower speakers functionality. The original tower speakers and housings were removed and replaced with Wet Sounds ICON8’s in White. All cockpit speakers were also upgraded to matching Wet Sounds XS-65i-series marine coaxial component speakers. We removed the OEM plastic “sub enclosure” and subwoofer, and custom-built a ported subwoofer enclosure in the port helm compartment for a JL Audio12W3, trimmed-out in black vinyl and paneled-off in OEM-matching carpet, for a seamless appearance. We also removed the trashcan door that opens into the walkway between the helms and replaced with a custom-built bass exit vent piece, to improve subwoofer performance in the cockpit with the port helm compartment closed. The vent piece is trimmed-out in white vinyl and features a black steel mesh insert, to allow the sub bass to escape the compartment. And full functionality of wind-break door between the cockpit & bow is maintained! 3 JL Audio M-series marine amplifiers power the 2 tower speakers, 6 cockpit speakers, and single 12” subwoofer. All new power & ground wires were ran for the 3 amps, with a custom-built fuse holder mounting panel added in the starboard rear compartment, making the system easily serviceable and cosmetically appealing. Finally we added an onboard smart battery charger & power port, for easy access to plugging-in, charging, and maintaining the dual-AGM battery setup, to ensure hours of reliable stereo play time on the water, every time the boat goes out.
