Best Marine Stereo Receivers in 2020



BOSS Audio Systems MGR350B Marine Gauge Receiver - Bluetooth, Digital Media MP3 Player, no CD Player, USB Port, AM FM Radio, Weatherproof Review:


Well I am not much of a reviewer but this time I wanted to write something about this radio. I got it very fast and since I couldn't install it immediately I decided I was going to test it at home with a speaker box I had and an external power supply. The speakers used in this test where 2 pioneer 6x9 4 way 350W speakers, and the power supply provides 13.8V at 22 amps (it doesn't draw that much current for sure). Well let me tell you that this little radio can move the speakers very well, and it is loud. I measured the sound pressure originated at 3ft with a white noise file and it measured 88db, if I put a sound track on the peak was at 90db at 3ft. Now for me that is more than enough power. Now the units gets hot in very little time when you push it near the max volume, and since the back is all sealed up, and the cover is plastic, I hope that overheating doesn't start to be a problem. Operation is very easy and BT pairing is as easy as it gets. I hope to install it on the boat soon enough and if it works as good as it did home I am sure that this is a winner.

Water Resistant Marine Stereo Cover - Smoke Colored Heavy Duty Boat Radio Protector Shield with Flip-up Door & Spring Loaded Release - Mounting Gasket Included - Pyle PLMRCB1 Review:


We purchased this to install on a box to cover our new stereo we placed in a 2017 Odes Dominator UTV. We wanted the feature of the water resistant, dirt resistant cover to keep the stereo clean and safe. This was most definitely worth the money! It was a bit larger than we had expected however this came in handy in the long run of installation and further use. We are able to put the remote and a USB/MP3 player inside the cover with the stereo for safety. The stereo remote works through the smoked glass. Very happy with this purchase. Would definitely recommend!

Marine Receiver & Speaker Kit - In-Dash LCD Digital Stereo Built-in Bluetooth & Microphone w/ AM FM Radio System 5.25’’ Waterproof Speakers (2) MP3/USB/SD Readers & Remote Control - Pyle PLMRKT36WT Review:


Received earlier than expected and extremely happy with it thank you except for one speaker is defective they want me to send it all back but I don't want to because I'm so pleased with the stereo I might just have to replace on my own but they are more than helpfully about everything thank you



Pyle Marine Bluetooth Stereo Radio - 12v Single DIN Style Boat in Dash Radio Receiver System with Built-in Mic, Digital LCD, RCA, MP3, USB, SD, AM FM Radio - Remote Control - PLMRB29B (Black) Review:


I have had a PYLE radio on my boat for 10 years. I choose the model without a cd player due to the rough water conditions I am usually in. The last Pyle radio I had lasted 10 years and Is actually still working. I replaced it with a BT model so I wouldn’t have to continue to deal with a wire getting tangled trying to play music from my phone while driving the boat. I have not used this new radio that much yet but so far it’s perfect. The BT connection was very user friendly, simply scroll through the menu to BT and it’s immediately pairs with your phone. The 300w amp is plenty of power to play the music loud enough while at cruising speeds! Love Love Love this company and the amazing products they offer and the best prices you will find! Keep up the great work PYLE USA! Thank You



JVC KD-X35MBS Single DIN SiriusXM Bluetooth in-Dash Digital Media Marine Stereo Receiver w/Pandora Control Review:


I probably need to read the manual in more depth. This is installed on my boat and I didn't want it tied to the ignition switch. Negatives involve getting multiple phones to switch back and forth. Yes - this may be because I've not read the manual. However, this is consumer electronics. Why should I have to read a manual ;-)

Otherwise, this exceeds my expectations.
