Installation of IC-802

I have a question for a ICOM 802 setup. What is the length of the speaker cord from the transceiver unit? Can the transmitter go next to the antenna tuner in the lazerett next to the back stay with the head unit and speaker at the nav station about 20' away? I have a 37' Beneteau.
I plan on a GAP backstay antenna on the port stay with the nav table on the starboard side in front of the large head space.
The boat has a slight list to starboard so any weight on the port side is good.
Thanks for any help.

The main unit of the M802 isn't all that heavy, I wouldn't worry too much about the weight issue on a boat the size of yours. I would suggest you put it someplace that will be dry and easy to access, preferably not far from the nav station. As for the original question, I don't know how long that control cable between the M802 head and main unit is. If the info isn't on the Icom website, you can post a question about it to their techs.

if I remember right; they sell an extension cord. I wouldn't put the black box out in the weather. It has too many connections to corrode.

The standard separation cable between transceiver and remote head is 16.4' The transceiver weighs 10 pounds and is not water resistant at all so must be mounted in a well protected area.
