Blaupunkt for your boat

Blaupunkt's Capri 220 marine digital media receiver lets you enjoy top quality sound while you're living it up on the water. Designed for life on the high seas, this high-performance receiver makes a great command center for your marine audio system.

A rugged, versatile receiver

The Capri 220 packs a lot of features into a compact, durable design. You can kick back and enjoy AM/FM radio, or plug a music player or portable satellite radio into the two rear auxiliary inputs. Load up a thumb drive with your favorite cruising music and keep it plugged into the rear USB port. You can check out artist and song info with a quick glance at the brightly-lit display. The weather-resistant, UV-stable face and rubber control buttons are designed to withstand the sun, salt, and spray that come along with a day on the water.

Cant beat this for the price $55. I put this in my RZR and seems great so far. I wish you could play an Ipod through the USB port but my thumbdrive works great and my Ipod does work through Aux. This is definitely worth the money. I'm giving 5 stars because of bang for the buck.

Product Research


Marine Certified: The Blaupunkt Capri 220 marine receiver has been engineered and tested for use in the harsh marine environment. The receiver meets Waterproof level IP66 standards, ASTM117 salt/fog standards, and ASTM D 4329 UV exposure standards.

LCD Screen w/ Front-Panel Controls: The Capri 220 marine receiver features a single-line LCD screen with a white background and black text. The marine head unit also features rubberized control buttons on the front-panel.

Audio Section: The Blaupunkt marine receiver is equipped with a 25 Watts (RMS) x 4ch amplifier. The marine head unit also offers independent Bass & Treble control, plus Balance & Fade adjustment.

USB Port: The marine receiver is equipped with a rear-panel USB (type-A) port attached to the chassis by a 7" pigtail. The USB port allows you to connect a USB thumbdrive. The unit supports audio playback & control of MP3/WMA (32-320 kbps) music files stored on a compatible USB thumbdrive. The unit offers Play/Pause, Fast Forward/Reverse, Previous/Next Track, and Random/Repeat playback functions. The Intro Scan feature allows you to locate and play the first 10 seconds of each MP3/WMA track on a USB stick. This unit will also display song/artist information.

Note: Media devices, such as smartphones and MP3 players, should be connected to the Marine receiver via Aux input or optional Bluetooth.

AM/FM Tuner: The Capri 220 features a built-in AM/FM tuner with manual, seek, and preset tuning. You can select either US or European tuning. The marine unit provides 3 FM banks and 2 AM banks. Each AM/FM bank can hold up to 4 station presets, proving you with 12 FM station presets and 8 AM station presets. Stations can be stored manually or automatically.

Dual Aux Inputs: This unit features two rear-mounted, stereo RCA auxiliary inputs on a 7" pigtail so you can connect up to two external audio sources. An RCA-to-Minijack cable (sold separately) will be required for the connection of a portable audio player with a headphone jack output.

Optional Bluetooth: The marine head unit supports wireless music playback of a Bluetooth enabled audio player or smartphone via Blaupunkt's add-on Bluetooth receiver (023BTUP, sold separately). You'll be able to wirelessly stream stored music and music apps on your Bluetooth-enabled device to the receiver. Music navigation and song/artist information will still be done through your Bluetooth device.

Note: This unit does not support Bluetooth hands-free communication for making and answering phone calls.

Mounting Options:  The Blaupunkt Capri 220 marine receiver requires a rectangular cutout in the bulkhead for inserting the chassis. The integrated protective gasket, supplied mounting bracket, and integrated hardware secure the unit in place against the mounting surface. Receiver dimensions:

  • Chassis: 5.255" (w) x 3.305" (h) x 2.3125" (d)
  • Face-Plate: 6.085" (w) x 4.105" (h) x 0.605" (d)
  • Cutout: 5.495" (w) x 3.555" (h) x 2.3125" (d)
Note: The receiver does not include a mounting sleeve or ISO-mount screw holes to accommodate standard automotive installation.

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

Bought for my harley. [ DAVID  May 13, 2017 ]
I needed a reliable Stereo for an Ice Chest Stereo for the river. This unit had what I needed. [ John  May 01, 2017 ]
Adding to the fairing on my 2011 HD Roadking. [ Don  Mar 19, 2017 ]
Price, and function [ Kenneth  Apr 26, 2016 ]

4 questions already asked

Doubtful. It's a pretty basic unit. [ franke  Dec 28, 2016 ]
You can get an rca to headphone jack cable and input your music that way. The USB is only for the use of a thumb drive full of music. When using the thumb drive the head units acts like a normal cd player would. You can go forward or backwards on your play list. [ Brigham  Dec 27, 2016 ]
The cutout to fit this radio is: 5 5/8" wide 3 5/8" high [ MIKE  Jul 10, 2016 ]
Check product info the measurements are accurate [ chad  Jul 09, 2016 ]
There is no connection for a wired remote. [ jim  Apr 16, 2016 ]
Only has provision for two separate wired auxiliary inputs and a blue tooth adaptor purchased separately. [ Michael  Apr 11, 2016 ]
It would depend on your application. Normal boat speakers work great. 5 to 45 watt speakers will sound good. Find a good quality 2 way speaker set. You can run 4 speakers from the internal amp. [ Brigham  Dec 27, 2016 ]
We have too many compatible speakers to list here. I recommend calling an advisor on 1-800-324-9695 for help with choosing the best set for you. [ Paul  Nov 23, 2015 ]  Staff
