A marine receiver has to do more than just look good and sound great. It also has to stand up to salt, spray, sunlight, and rough weather. Kenwood designed their 2013 marine receivers and remotes to withstand the rigors of boating life, with a conformal-coated circuit board that helps prevents moisture from seeping in and causing damage.
When Doug, Crutchfield's Operations Manager, started talking about doing some work on his fishing boat, a Grady-White Journey 258, we took advantage of the opportunity to watch the installation. Some folks from Poly-Planar, the marine audio specialists, offered to help with the work and even provided some of the gear.
Warm weather is just around the corner for us, and our photographer, J, decided to put a new stereo system in his Moomba Outback boat, which he named Honey Badger. We jumped on the chance to lend a hand and get some great footage!
