Hey, I'm a baby boomer born in the early 60's. I like my music LOUD and Full of real low BASS.
But no, I am considerate to others. Plus noise
on a boat comes at an expense of power.
However, to go back to the topic K started this thread on. There are many companies out there that are producing sound equipment with the word "marine" on it. Be very careful what you buy. Much of what is available isn't so good in a wet environment
. A great number of companies produce speakers with polypropelyne cones, because a poly cone is cheap
to make. And then say it is "marine". But often the lead in wires and the magnet assembly is not "marine" environment friendly. So look for speakers that has all the relevant area's sealed up from salt
The other important points are, how did the company make the amplifier or head
proof? You can get some basic grade equipment that has had a soft seal sprayed over the components. But you really need a unit that is sealed in some way. The head
units are another major area. The insides of a lot of equipment simply can't be protected. One make does use SST for all the tape carrage. But I have no idea waht they did about the CD unit they have now. Then there are all the terminal connections. So there is a lot to look at in regards to "how long is this thing going to perform in a marine enironment"?? And , JUST because someone say's they have equimpment for the marine industry, doens't always mean it is Marine proof. It could just look cool for boats and that's it.
