The Humidity, Salt Air, & UV Sunlight can create numerous problems for a Marine Audio System aboard a boat. This is why it’s important to select a Marine Audio System that is designed & engineered to withstand the harsh marine environment. Some single – DIN Marine Radio Receivers are typically 2 in. tall, in size and can be stored inside a specifically designed protective housing, along with a weather – proof access lid, to minimize the effects of the harsh marine environment. A better option is to purchase a Marine Audio System that features Wireless Remote capability. You can then install your Marine Radio Receiver & Amplifier below decks and control all functions of the marine audio system with the Wireless Remote. Also, bear in mind that quality Marine Speakers typically have quite heavy magnets and should not be located anywhere near a Magnetic or Electronic Compass.
If you’re looking to boost your sound out on the water, then you’ll want to purchase & install a Subwoofer and Marine Amplifier, that will interface with the Marine Radio Receiver. Audio Options abound today & include Sirius, Bluetooth, Wireless Remote, USB Ports, CD, along with iPod connectivity. In addition, be sure to use the correct marine patch cables & AWG marine – grade tinned copper wire for all power & speaker wire connections.
Installation of a Marine Audio System is a relatively easy project for the Mariner to undertake with numerous videos available to help you work through the installation process. If your replacing existing components & speakers the project should be pretty straightforward. If it’s a new installation take the time to lay out where on the boat you will install the Marine Radio Receiver, Amplifier, & Speakers.
