Installation Details You’ll Admire
We know many common disappointments from an underperforming marine audio system can ruin your whole trip. We try to plan in advance around all of those known issues.
- Secondary battery power – we advocate for accessory power on a second battery (or auxiliary bank of batteries) so that even if you play the audio system until there is no battery power left, you can still start the boat’s engine and get charged. This is important because in the fun of boating, you often play music for extended periods of time without checking the battery levels.
- Stainless steel hardware – everything we mount in your boat is done with stainless steel hardware. This minimizes any probability of rust or corrosion that can inhibit the serviceability of your equipment.
- Soldered connections – wire-to-wire connections are soldered and insulated with marine-grade heat shrink tubing. This further minimizes the probability of corrosion in the wire connection which can be the cause of intermittent electronic operation. Soldering is much more reliable than crimped wire-to-wire connections, particularly in a marine environment.
- Thoughtful system design – we scrutinize every detail so your audio system is easy to operate and plays distortion free throughout the time in use. Careful placement of speakers allows us to distribute the sound evenly throughout the boat instead of concentrating it in one main location. This adds to the efficiency of the system’s audio output and, ultimately, the reliability. We also select marine-specific products that are IPX rated for water intrusion protection with sealed buttons, epoxy coated circuit boards and more. After all, if we’re offering you our lifetime installation warranty, you should know we design your installation so you can enjoy it and not worry.
