Reminds me of the TV series Ozark with the preacher on the water

Re: Rock concert on a sailboat!! Possible?

Sorry peep's. I saw this thread and had to add.. When doing the sound system for my yacht I wanted something nice and crisp and not stupid boat prices. After a lot of searching and researching, I came to this.



100W's of nice clear audio and the battery lasts for ages.. (easily charged with a small inverter) It's so good I haven't managed to get it to 100% yet.

Re: Rock concert on a sailboat!! Possible?

Really, what sort of yacht do you have this installed on and were have you anchored with this thing blasting out music?

Do you have a picture of it on board we can see or are you just advertising?

First investment would be armor plate. Torpedoes go thru fiberglass like butter.

Re: Rock concert on a sailboat!! Possible?

So if you plan to go so far offshore as not to bother anyone, would would actually attend the concert?

Don't want to spoil your fun, but please give a thought as well to the underwater creatures as well, noise pollution is already a big issue for them.
Dolphins and whales as others have very sensitive sound sensors and will suffer likely damage from the sound of your band being carried under water through the hull.

It's not that I do not love music, but I'm still ashamed that I cranked up my radio once on a beautiful evening to have Pavarotti as a background.
Not everybody loves the same music and I may have spoilt this beautiful evening for others by doing the above.

Re: Rock concert on a sailboat!! Possible?

OK, I rent out sound systems. I have 4 systems ranging from a small one that I use for beach weddings and talking heads up to my large array system that can fill an average high school football field.

My smallest system is a 150-watt amplifier driving two speakers. Front of house has a small rack with the mixer built into the top, 6 wireless mics, a CD/MP3 player, and a little rack-mounted cue amp/speaker. That entire system requires 9.6 amps (measured) at 120 VAC. That means 1150 watts give or take. I use a large Harbor Freight inverter and two 8D batteries for beach weddings on a pretty regular basis.

First, I would check and see if the band in question's statement of "600 watts" is how much line voltage they use or that's how much amplification they use. For a small 3-person acoustic folk group on a bar's corner stage you can figure 300 watts minimum just for the stage amplifiers. Add another 150-ish watts for the mixer and outboard processing.

For a 5-person group, assuming NO micing of the drum kit or instruments, and no elaborate floor monitoring, you can figure on that 500-watts plus 180-watts per instrument amp, maybe an additional 100 watts for the keyboard. My absolute minimum estimation for a band as you described would total 1200-watts (rounded upwards to closest 100-watts). That's 10 amps at 120 VAC. (It would actually take LESS line power to run the instruments through the main PA instead of using individual amplifiers.)

Just giving some real-world numbers for ya!

Could you do that on a boat's (inverted) DC system? Yeah, but for how long, and WHY?! And are you going to do the concert ONLY in the daytime? Even if you use all LED lighting plus a (very) small controller, you can figure on adding another couple to few hundred watts.

My largest system, by the way, is driven with a -minimum- feeder of 5-wire, 200-amp, 120/208 3-phase. That's just for the audio. Lighting and misc power is someone else's problem...

Rock on!

Completely possible. Waikiki Yacht Club did it at Keehi. 11th Hour played on the deck. Boats and yachts anchored around danced on deck it was amazing! WYC called it Summer Sailstoce.
