I would like to put a new entertainment system in my boat and was wondering if any of you had any suggestions including type of equipment, placement, controls etc. In addition, please comment on placement of speakers in the cockpit and on deck.
 
Thanks for all your help.

Hi

I installed a Fusion 600 with separate iPod dock. This is a flexible system that can drive up to 4 separate zones (zones 3 & 4 will require external amplifiers), plus a bass 'woofer' if required. It is (or was) the chosen Hanse option in 2012.

Installation was considerably simplified by the pre-installed (by Hanse) wiring on my 415. This included power (both permanent (for station pre-set retention) and switched) supplies plus 2 sets of speaker wires (cockpit and saloon). The wiring loom was hidden beneath the distribution board near the switch panel, with the speaker wires terminating near the (Hanse) chosen locations for the speakers. 

In the saloon, there were partial cut-outs already prepared for the Fusion speakers in 2 of the seat bases, with the speaker wires terminating (but hidden) nearby. In the cockpit, I had difficulty finding the hidden speaker wires but they were there behind the locker panels. I had to cut the speaker holes first to find them, though!

The positions for the Fusion head unit and the speakers may well be different on the 630. It may also not be pre-wired like the 415, although I suspect it will be and maybe even have speaker wires leading to additional cabins. If possible, before proceeding, find a 630 with an installed Fusion system and check where the head unit and speakers are mounted. Take a look at the wiring, if you can. You could also ask your dealer, although they may deny the existence of the pre-installed wiring and direct you towards their installation service!

I also installed a TV/DVD on the forward bulkhead. This needs a mast mounted antenna and associated signal booster. I had the antenna installed before the mast was stepped.

If you are looking for a PC based multi-media system, or equivalent (probably the way to go if funds are not limited) then someone better qualified than I on such systems may reply shortly.

Good luck - nice problem to have!
Roger

If you have a b&g zeus (or other chartplotter from Navico) installed you just need the sonic hub plus some marine speakers.

Another very good solution is what I did.
I changed the car stereo system which Hanse build in to a better one, with bluetooth connection. I can play all my music directly from the smartphone from any place I am on the boat. As well I can control the volume from anywhere via the smartphone.
When a call is coming the music fades out and starts again when a call is finished. The ringing is heard through all speakers. Very practical when it is windy and noisy.
The car stereo has a connection to a sub woofer as well.
Only the 2 zones, cockpit and saloon needs to be controlled at the car stereo itself. If you need more zones than it is not the right solution.
Cost: around 180 Euro.
Installation: Take out the old one and plug in the new one.


Cheers HanaFe
