When it comes to designing and installing a marine audio stereo system that will stand the test of time, nobody in Abbotsford, Maple Ridge or Chilliwack does it better than Certified Autosound and Security. With several centuries of combined experience under our belts, our team uses products, processes and materials that will ensure your marine audio system sounds amazing and will perform reliably for years and years.
Premium Marine-Grade Audio Products
We still see consumers using car audio equipment on their boats. Sure, products designed for cars and trucks cost a little less, but they simply aren’t designed to endure the environmental challenges of marine applications.
Marine Electronics — Source units and amplifiers designed for marine applications differ in their features and the construction. The circuit boards in a marine amp or radio feature a corrosion-resistant coating that protects the components from the high humidity levels found near the water. The chassis of these units use corrosion-resistant materials like aluminum alloy or stainless steel. Even the screws used to assemble marine-grade products resist corrosion.
Marine Speakers and Subwoofers — Marine loudspeakers have a tough life. They need to withstand getting wet, prolonged exposure to the sun and extended operation at high volume levels. The marine products from JL Audio and Rockford Fosgate that we use are designed using materials that can handle sun exposure without chalking, cracking, fading or yellowing. The physical designs of these speakers create a watertight fit against the hull of your boat. Water can’t penetrate the motor structure of a genuine marine speaker, ensuring they continue to operate reliably for decades.
Marine Installation Practices
In addition to using great products, the team at Certified Autosound and Security uses an installation process that promotes longevity and reliability. Speakers are always mounted on flat surfaces for a watertight seal against the hull. We use water-resistant materials like Sintra or Starboard instead of wood for equipment mounting racks. Any adapters or mounting brackets are made of acrylic plastic to endure even the harshest weather conditions. We route our wiring in a manner that ensures reliability. Even the wire we use is specific to marine applications.
Marine System Design
When we design a marine audio system, we take into account how you use your boat. Do you want some background music for a sailboat while having a quiet dinner with friends, or are you looking to have a wakeboarder on the end of the tow rope feel the beat of his or her favorite music? We’ll design your system with enough speakers and enough amplifier power to ensure it sounds great at all volume levels and won’t over-work any single component.
Where we mount the source unit and how many remotes we add are also important considerations in marine audio stereo system designs. We want to be sure you can use the stereo easily from anywhere on board — or even at the end of the tow rope!
