The MS2013BTR waterproof stereo from Jensen has a unique design and offers some great features that will work well on any open vehicle as well as a boat. The face is only slightly larger than a typical DIN sized stereo and it has a rubber gasket around it to seal it to the dash or wherever you decide to install it. That keeps the water from getting behind the unit.
As a waterproof stereo the face can be rained on and splashed with no problem. The chassis in back can handle some exposure to water too. But don’t plan on tossing this thing in the lake and expect it to survive. rocktheboatmarinestereo.com It isn’t built to handle any kind of depth at all.
The face is permanently attached to the chassis which means no security removal is available. That is due to the fact that it is waterproof. Any kind of connection like that is likely to be an avenue for water to penetrate so Jensen avoids it altogether by simply making it permanent.
This marine stereo has a rear USB port for connectivity to iPhones, iPods, MP3 players and pretty much anything else you can think of. It’s on the rear to keep the unit sealed and waterproof.
If you want to keep your phone in your pocket, you can stream your music right to the MS2013BTR via Bluetooth. You phone won’t get recharged that way, obviously, but it is a nice feature to have.
