    Safety Recall on Portable Audio System

    BRP News released today on twitter a safety recall on portable audio mounting systems for the sea doo spark. I checked the website but its not up yet. Contact your dealer to find out if your are affected.

    I'm glad they are looking into this, I've had the speaker come off more lately at speed when landing a little hard (I ride in the ocean). It gets easier to come off with time. Last Sunday, it hit just above my right leg lower part (tibia area) cut me too. The mounting system is a bad design, you pull down to get the speaker off, so if you land hard of course the shock will make the latch go down as well.

    Worldwide, group facepalm for BRP in 3, 2, 1. ....

    I can hear the “design engineers” now: “Bbbbbbut, it works fabulously on our CAD computer screens, darlinks!”

    Yeap,

    But I give credit to BRP, I replied to their tweeter tweet (on the safety recall), and they contacted be directly via email right away. I just need to go to my dealer so they can order the part for me.

    I love the speaker, its very loud and clear, and I use it out of the water as well. But just 2 points were it's held for such a heavy item was not a great design. I'll post images of the new revised mounting system when it comes in.

    Thanks.

    Gotta give credit where it’s due.

    And, in the “the glass is half full, not half empty” vein of things:

    I guess all the people employed in BRP customer service as a result of this DO have this to thank the “design team” for!

    Still, smh and a reminder to me go try and avoid buying ANYTHING “new” from BRP, until it’s been out at least 2, preferably, 3 full years!

    All,

    I received the revised mounting system for the bluetooth speaker for the Sea Doo Spark. I haven't mounted it yet, just a unboxing of what's in the box:







    I'll be showing pictures of the old mounting system side by side with the revised version so changes are documented.

    After testing, I'll report if I have any issues.

    Thanks.

    All,

    Update, I was able to swap out the previous mounting system for the new revised one (recall). As you all know, the speaker would detach itself on hard landings (wake/wave jumping).

    I was able to fully test the new mounting system today along with my Spark Trixx and I had no issues so far, and it was by far one of the most extreme days for me on a ski. The waves were crazy, here is what was the marine forecast (I looked it up afterwards when I got back): Seas 4 to 6 feet with occasional seas to 8 feet. I never check the marine forecast, only regular weather, next time I will. I went from Dania Beach, FL to Haulover, FL (Sandbar), its about 14 miles each way on water, and again I had no issues except my the toll it took on me, lol.

    I have attached pics of the old mounting system with the new one so you can see the differences in them, I also pointed it out in the pictures.

    Thanks.
