    Default 2018 Fusion RA70N zones

    On the water this weekend I realized that the four cabin speakers in the boat are wired to separate zones, and they're completely non-intuitive. Zone 1 is the left front and right rear, and Zone 2 is the left rear and right front plus Tower speakers. I think the crossover is a mistake, but I would love to have a better division - Like all four cabin speakers on Zone one, and the tower on Zone 2. After looking at the manual for the radio, it doesn't seem like you can get all four channels powered by the head unit on the same zone. Am I interpreting this correctly? Looks like it's time for an amp!

    Does anyone know what these Factory speakers are?

    If ALL speakers are powered on external amp, you can have 1 zone for tower and 1 zone for in-boats.

    Interpreted correctly, you need an amp for the in boats, get your amp and may as well get some bow speakers at the same time, then you can do zone 1 cabins and sub , if you have or want, and towers zone 2

    I had the same issue in my Max. Literally just finished residing it all about an hour ago. 4 in cabins and the sub and zone 1 and the towers on zone 2. Don’t think I have it the best way right now as all 4 in cabins are running off of the head unit and towers and amp are off of amp.

    Almost forgot, they had my towers running from sub out and not my subwoofer.

    so, did you just re-wire the four in-cabins? Like cut and splice, or was there somewhere easier to make the changes?

    Install another amp, run rcas, may need a converter from speaker wire to rca, problem solved and it will sound better.

    Did your boats not come with 2 amps? I have 6 cabin speakers and the sub running from the fusion amp. That is zone 1. Zone 2 is the (2ea) Rev 10s on the tower which is powered by a Wetsounds amp. The zone controller works great for that set up. If you are buying a new amp, I would suggest one that would power all the in boat speakers and sub. Then power the tower speakers separately. Also, I put my fusion amp on the “all” setting instead of the hi pass setting to allow base to come through the boat speakers also. From there I set the gain on each channel so that I can turn all speakers all the way up without distortion. It sounds good, but I am not impressed with the Kicker 6.5’s. They are on my list to replace some day. Just my two cents.

    Yes, but technically, you have two amps, one driving the woofer and one driving the tower speakers. So you need to be using the woofer output to the amp's woofer inputs and then the full-range outputs to the tower speaker amp inputs. Then theres a few setting son the amp(s) to get set correctly.

    Ok yes that’s how it’s wired now. Probably need to get the settings right on the amp then. I’ll mess with it some more.
