There are many company that say they make marine certified audio for the marine/boat industry… But they just don’t get it .. still making radios for marine application with the ability to play cds …a true marine radio doesn’t play cd’s they stream music using bluetooth from any bluetooth device … Such as tablets,cellphones,computers.
When a company puts a warning that says …Do not install the unit in a spot exposed to direct sunlight or excessive heat or humidity. Also avoid places with too much dust or the possibility of water splashing. The manufacture just doesn’t get marine audio …
We are a kenwood dealer …and sell a lot of kenwood radio for marine application …Because they are high end quality products.They just don’t get it either.
There are a few brands we sale that make a m2 certified marine radio
