Aquatic AV AQ-WR-5F
Wired remote control for select Aquatic AV marine stereos
Our take on the Aquatic AV AQ-WR-5F by Crutchfield's Dave Delamere
Get remote access to your Aquatic AV marine stereo
Depending on your application, you may not always have direct access to the controls on your marine stereo when you need them. That's where Aquatic AV's AQ-WR-5F wired remote control comes in handy. It provides total control over your music, even when your stereo isn't easy to get to. This remote has an IP65 rating, which means it's waterproof and dustproof, so it can endure exposure to some harsh environments.
Control where you need it
You can mount the AQ-WR-5F onto a flat panel or console that's convenient for you. Its 2-way communication not only controls your stereo functions, but you'll also see song and system information on the backlit LCD display. This remote is compatible with the Aquatic AV AQ-MP-5UBT and AQ-MP-5BT stereos.
Note: This remote doesn't include wiring, so you'll need to select one of Aquatic AV's extension cables to complete the installation. If you're using more than one extension cable, you'll also want to consider Aquatic AV's AQ-RB-3 wired remote cable bracket to secure the connection.
