    Default Underwater & REV 10 Lighting

    I am hoping to change the colour my existing stock underwater lights, REVO cabin speakers and Sub to red along with adding LED rings to my REV 10's.

    I found a thread explaining how to change the cabin speakers, but I was wondering the following:

    1. How would I go about changing the stock underwater lights to red?
    2. Is changing the colour of the sub the same as the REVO's?
    3. My REV 10's have the swivel/quick disconnect mounts, how difficult is it to add LED rings?
    4. Is the tower prewired to the mounts for LED's?
    5. If yes, would the LED's be wired to an accessory switch or would the LED's power up and down with the head unit?


    Thanks in advance!

    1) Gut says you need new lights that are either red, or multi-color. Theres a significant cost difference between single color and multi-color LEDs, so I would not expect Moomba to install an RGB underwater LED and not make use of them. There are 2 basic types of multi-color underwater LEDs. Those that require and external RGB controller to use. These would either be controlled through the touch screen or there would be a wireless remote in the glove box. Second type uses TTP (times toggle protocol) to change colors. By turning the underwater lights off and back on rapidly, cycles the colors.

    2) The LED woofer cone "glow kit" is not included on the woofer grill for those buying the woofer and grill on a consumer level. SO I would doubt moomba included it and not made use of it. If its there, you will easily feel and see opaque lens if the light is there. If its not, you just need to source the glow kit and install and wire it.
    3) Difficult is relevant, so its hard for me to answer it, for you. It will require gutting the pod in order to complete the wiring and ring installation.
    4) if the tower is not pre-wired (I do not think it is), you will have to remove the clamps and wire the tower with the appropriate cabling and connectors.
    5) the speaker and woofer LEDs require their own switched power source. They are not powered by the speaker circuit. I would also not use the head unit to turn them on. In this scenario, they would be on the entire time the stereo is on. You may not want this.

    If it were me, I would go ahead make use if the RGB capabilities of the Wet Sounds and wire all 3 color up and go with an RGB controller. You want red, leave them on red. But you have the option of other colors and modes as well. If the in-boats are wired for single color now, it would more work then to just change them to a different single color, but greater function in the end.
