Author Topic:   Best Marine Stereo to Replace Old

I am about to replace my old Jensen Marine stereo for the third time on my 2008 190 Outrage. Fortunately, I was able to utilize the warranty for each replacement. The warranty is out this time and I am not buying another Jensen.

Does anyone have a recommendation on a moderately priced reliable MARINE AM/FM Stereo?

Thanks

The iPod with ear buds is an excellent marine stereo. Waterproof cases are available.

Joe this is why I never liked cut into my boat for a radio, I always carried a sony box type, I can put it in different places in the boat or take it with me when I land on an island, and toss it when it does not work anymore, however with todays electronics I agree with Jefecinco

I have a Jensen msr2007 now. It is ok, had to repair it myself once,. If it dies i will probably get a unit from fusion. People seem to like their marine headunits.

I agree with jefecinco with a little addition. iPod with waterproof Bluetooth speaker. There are lots of good ones from about $50 to $200. Plus you can use it on the patio, too.

I have a Dual Marine Stereo unit on my 1989 22' Outrage, and one on my 1998 Polar 1780 Saltwater Series flats boat. Both units perform very nicely. I believe the following link provides what you are looking for in the Dual line. Good luck with your purchase.

Thanks for the info fellas.

Does anyone have any experience with Poly-Planar stereos? They have been making marine speakers for years and I see they also have a few stereo models out.

iPhone/Smart Phone and portable Bluetooth speakers is not a bad way to go - simple.

I do what Whatknot does, works great - iPod whatever. Got a simple JBL Flip speaker and put it on console or up front where folk lay on bow cushion. Works great, no holes to drill. I'd like to set up a charging or power system for iPhones, iPods - not sure how to do it.
