The Best Aftermarket Accessories For Your Boat Stereo System in 2022

Upgrade Your Boat Stereo System this Summer at Stereo Depot

The weather is warming up, the sun is shining, and another California summer is on its way. There’s truly nothing better than cruising on the water while blasting your favorite tunes.

However, with a boat ride comes a lot of extra noise that sometimes makes it hard to hear your music even when the volume is turned all the way up.

Upgrading your marine audio system can give you the necessary aftermarket accessories to pump up your tunes and get your boat ready to hit the water just in time for summer.

Begin Upgrading Your Boat Stereo System

Many people are familiar with upgrading a car stereo system, but did you know you can also install a brand new marine audio system into your boat? Upgrading your marine audio system with aftermarket accessories can take your boating experience to the next level. It all starts with your boat stereo.

There are a few things to keep in mind when deciding which aftermarket accessories you want to install into your boat stereo system.

  • The environment. First, it’s important to note what kind of environment your boat mainly operates in. If you typically boat in high seas, your equipment should be durable enough to withstand wind, rain, sunlight, chop, and salt.

  • Water-resistance. You should also consider whether you want your aftermarket accessories to be water-resistant or waterproof. You may be asking yourself, “what’s the difference?” Accessories that are water-resistant are still functional after being splashed on or caught in a short rainfall. However, a full submersion would result in failure. Waterproof accessories can face submersion and should be installed if you want to play it safe.

  • UV-Resistant. The sun can really damage your boat stereo system if you don’t take proper precautions. When deciding on your marine audio equipment, make sure to purchase aftermarket accessories that resist harmful UV rays. Not only can UV-resistant accessories hold out against the California sun and its heat, but they will also prevent peeling and discoloration, so your boat stereo system will stay looking brand new.

  • Anti-corrosive. As you boat down the coast, salt is inevitable, and it can be damaging to your boat stereo system if you aren’t careful. It’s smart to invest in marine audio accessories that will last and hold up against the salt. To ensure that your marine audio system remains in good condition, select aftermarket accessories that are made with anti-corrosive materials. And when we install them for you, we’ll ensure everything, down to the wiring, will withstand salt.

  • Additional power. It’s easy for your sound to get lost in the open water, boat engine, and water splashing. Most aftermarket accessories can help your boat stereo system overpower these other noises, providing you with an uninterrupted crisp, clear sound.

Aftermarket Accessories For Your Boat Stereo

Whether you decide to upgrade your entire boat stereo system at once or little by little, it’s beneficial to know what kind of aftermarket accessories can be added to your boat. In fact, making just one or two swaps can completely change how you hear your music while aboard. Ask the pros at Stereo Depot how to get the biggest boom for your buck.

  • Speakers. To begin transforming your boat stereo system, start by upgrading your speakers. You’ll want to prioritize high-quality speakers that can encounter any conditions that your boat may face. Investing in good speakers will save you more time and money in the long run, as you won’t need to constantly fix or replace them.

  • Amplifiers. Just like you can in a vehicle, you can also add an amplifier into your boat stereo system. An amplifier will allow you to hear your music clearly over all the extra noises that could potentially drain out your sound. Its purpose is to play your music louder without damaging your speakers or distorting the music.

  • Subwoofers. Subwoofers are the cherry on top to any marine audio system. Their purpose is to boost the low-end bass, bringing your music to life, and allowing you to hear a full spectrum of tones.

  • Receivers. Stay connected by installing a receiver into your boat stereo system. Many receivers feature bluetooth connectivity, auxiliary inputs, and satellite radio, giving you the ability to play your favorite tunes directly from your smartphone.
