Sound Advice: Replacing Your Boat’s Speakers
In this new video series presented by KICKER Marine Audio, Randy Vance offers sound advice on what to look for when upgrading the audio systems on your boat.
In the first installment (watch it here), Randy Vance explores why you should consider upgrading your boat’s head unit and what to look for when considering options. Now that you’ve upgraded your source unit, chances are your current speaker setup might be a little out of whack. In this second installment of Sound Advice, Randy reviews key things to consider when upgrading your boat’s speaker system, including:
- Do you want to hear your speakers over the noise of your engine?
- Will you need to adjust speaker volume throughout different areas of your boat?
- Do you need a subwoofer and/or an amplifier?
- How much customization do you want with LEDs?
Randy uses the KICKER KM654L coaxial speakers for demonstration. UV treatments on injection-molded cones, Santoprene® surrounds, baskets and grilles all help maintain top-shelf performance. KM speakers will endure almost any weather conditions with splash-and-spray-resistant sealed motors, cones and Locking/Sealed Terminal Covers. Speaker hardware is forged from rustproof, 316L stainless-steel. Check out KICKER’s website to learn more and start shopping: kicker.com.
Stay tuned for the next episode of Sound Advice with Randy Vance presented by KICKER Marine Audio where Randy explores choosing tower speakers for your boat.
