The sun’s shining, the water is sparkling, and your favorite summer tunes are wafting in the air. That’s the life, isn’t it? With an audio system built into your boat, you can easily set the mood with high-fidelity sound.
Marine stereo systems are built to deliver powerful audio that can be heard above the wind and roar at sea. Whether you’re listening to yacht rock or pop, you can easily select songs and enjoy music without worrying about losing connection or malfunctioning devices.

You can’t expect any old speakers to perform well on the ocean. The water, salt, and extreme temperatures can wreak havoc on audio technology, and if your audio gear isn’t built for the sea, it won’t last long.
Marine-grade speakers deliver extra-powerful sound so you can hear the music above the roaring wind. Their speaker enclosures are also waterproof and weatherproof to withstand even the gnarliest weather and waves.
When we install marine audio systems on our customers' boats, we trust high-end audio brands like JBL and Bowers & Wilkins for durable hardware and high-fidelity sound. Even if salt water sprays right into the speaker, you can still hear The Beach Boys with crystal-clear sound.
The marine audio system isn’t complete with only speakers. You’ll need a marine-grade amplifier to deliver power to them, and a marine receiver to send audio signals to the system. Your speakers will play in unison across the boat, connected by marine-rated wiring that is tinned to protect against corrosion. Want to add extra ‘oomph’ to your music? Include a marine subwoofer for rich bass notes.
To select and play downloaded music or streaming playlists, you’ll also need a control system that connects to all audio components. With a tap on your phone, tablet, or remote, you can choose speakers, pick which media you’d like to listen to, and press “Play.” The same system can connect to any TVs or lighting on board, too.
If you don’t have Wi-Fi, a media storage system will hold all your music in a digital library. You can also install a satellite communication system so that you can access the internet and stream while at sea.
