Marine Radios and Stereos

Marine radios and marine stereos are not the same as home systems or automotive radios.  They have to be designed to a higher level of environmental protection against humidity, temperature extremes, salt exposure if you're boating on or near the ocean and vibration from the severe hull pounding on choppy waters.

      

 

Marine electronics manufacturers of marine radios and marine stereos, along with any marine electronics including GPS and fish finders require special electronic components, special processing and design.  For example electronic circuit boards which are generally unprotected  against oxidation from exposure to humidity, dust and salt are coated with a conformal coating or poly coating, either in a silicon base coating or urethane coating.  This ensures the electronics against oxidation or corrosion.  So, in you're looking for great pontoon accessories, marine radios is a great pontoon accessory to add to your new or used pontoon boat.

In addition, the electronic components themselves need to be higher level quality grade that have tested against severe vibration standards.    Also,  connector designs are custom with integrated rubber seals or grommets to protect the electrical connections against corrosion.

Trying to save a little by buying a cheaper automotive style of radio or stereo can end up costing you alot more in the end.  In addition to premature component failure,  a shorted circuit due to salt exposure oxidation can even result in fire and destroy your boat altogether.
