Marine Audio

Whether you’re looking to overhaul your boat’s sound system with new tower speakers and subs, or just need weather resistant replacements, we’re here to help.

There are a variety of options to achieve a great sound on the water, and special considerations when installing electronics in a water prone environment.

Marine rated audio systems are intensely tested against the elements, making sure they hold up against sun, rain, heat and salt.

With the abundance of Lakes and waterways, it’s not surprising that Michiganders spend a huge amount of free time on the water.

Upgrade your favorite toys with led lighting, GPS navigation, and a banging sound system!

Boats are full of curves, and space is limited.  This makes the use of prefab speaker boxes less than ideal. 

Our techs can fabricate custom boxes for a seamless look without wasted space.

Head Units

What to look for in a Marine Head Unit

A marine stereo must be able to stand up to much harsher elements than in the typical automotive install. Wind, rain, sun, salt, and extreme temperatures can wreak havoc on sensitive electronics. Finding a tested unit from a reliable brand is imperative.

Some of the same considerations go into choosing stereo for a car or a boat:

  • What size is the unit you plan to replace? Single din units can be replaced with a larger unit, but will require more customization.
  • What type of music input do you need? (CDs, USB, DVD, Aux in, etc.)
  • What type of power will the head unit require? Some units would benefit from an external amplifier.
