I spent an hour on the phone with kenwood today trying to put to bed my 6 month nightmaier. I have thier newest lates greatest indash. it is white with a flip down face. well month 1=cd quit working month3=thing is dead, so I send it in... "it is MOISTURE(not water) resistant. " So I said I am just Fuc*ed? looks like it
So I will be recomending that everyone stay away from them. WILL NOT BACK THEIR WARRENTY. I will be adding all Clarion

I have a Sony CD w/wireless remote 4 6x9's, 2 tweeters in the dash and 2 12" Subs all are Audiobahn. Its powered by a huge fan cooled Audiobahn amp. It has a real good sound and the subs hit really hard, they dont drown out everything else though. My subs are made out of aluminum instead of paper. I've been out of touch with the stereo world for about four years and this new stereo shop in town sold me on this stuff and I really like it.

Definatly go wit the Clarion Marine head unit. Not only does it sound real good but you can dump 40 gallons of water on the face and it will be ok!!!! It is the ONLY TRUE built for boats radio. They did not just paint this thing white and call it marine.

They also have a wired remote that is kick ass. You can wire two of them off it if you want and have totall control. Put the thing on the swim platform if you want it will be fine

I like the sony equipment but I sent in my dealer agreement for clarion marine. I am not happy with my sony distributor so you have to change after 18 years. I can not answer on the JBL but I will ask. Forrest
Jon I have toi tell you what I did to one of the big retailers yesterday.
