Best onboard audio entertainment equipment for 2021
8/2/2021

Whether you enjoy listening to classic 60s music while swinging on the hook or blasting out reggae at high decibels while wake riding, you’ve got lots of choices. Which audio system or speakers to buy? Reading through the promotion for various brands and models and understanding the specs can be a bit intimidating. We’re here to help.

Below is equipment that seven manufacturers singled out as their Best & Brightest—not necessarily the latest model or the one with the most features, but audio electronics that may be their most popular or technologically advanced or the workhorse of the line. This list is part of an exercise that Marine Electronics Journal does every year in which we report on 17 categories of electronics. We call it the Best & Brightest Boating Electronics. Last week we looked at top-rated autopilots. Next week The Mic will roll out the Best & Brightest radars.



Fusion Apollo RA770

The Apollo RA770 is the world’s most awarded marine stereo. Featuring many industry firsts including Fusion’s Digital Signal Processing technology (DSP), PartyBus-Network capabilities, built-in Wi-Fi with Apple AirPlay 2 and a large color touchscreen display, the Apollo RA770 redefines audio excellence with its revolutionary technology and innovative design to deliver an unprecedented marine audio entertainment experience.

Clarion CMSP
 
Offered in 6.5- and 7.7-inch options, the new CMSP coaxial, full-range speakers and matching 10-inch subwoofers benefit from Clarion’s decades of experience in marine audio design. The premium marine coaxial speakers feature a bridge-mounted, edge-driven, silk dome tweeter with neodymium magnet and ferrofluid cooling for outstanding high-frequency detail. Integrated within the woofer basket, away from the elements, is a second-order, high-pass tweeter filter. Woofer assembly is sealed from the front to eliminate a common failure point of typical coaxial speakers and creates more woofer cone surface area for better efficiency and output. Available in 6.5-inch with or without optional built-in RGB (red, green, blue) LED lighting or 7.7-inch with built-in RGB LED lighting. The CMSP series also includes a powerful 10-inch subwoofer optimized for infinite-baffle applications.
