There is nothing like cruising through the waters, beneath a brilliant summer sun, listening to music and hanging out with your friends and family as your boat cuts through the waves. The thing is, unless you have the proper marine audio, you might be missing out big time on what kind of experience you could be having with your boat stereo system.
Boat stereo systems, and marine stereo packages in general, are built a little bit differently than your typical stereo system you might find in your car or the ones you have set up in your house. The big difference is that these speakers have to be waterproof. There is no question about it. A boat riding through the waves, whether lake or ocean, or through rain or sun, needs to have speakers that are hardy and can resist water damage 100% of the time. Sometimes, this built in water resistance that marine speakers employ, can cause a bit of a trade off with the sound quality.
