Marine Audio - Boats on a Lake

Audio equipment for powersports is made specifically to stand up to an outdoor environment and needs to be a lot more durable than equipment not exposed to the elements. The main features of marine and powersports audio gear that sets it apart are:

  • Durability - Speakers, radios, amplifiers, and other electronics in your boat need to be water, sun, and rust resistant.
  • High Power Sound - Listening to music outside, especially while moving at high speeds, means that you need a system loud enough that you can still hear it.  There's nothing quite like having a soundtrack you can hear while skiing or wakeboarding behind a boat!
  • Size and Fit - Marine audio equipment is made specifically to fit in the unique watercraft environment so that it fits seamlessly into your boat.
  • Features - Many boaters choose to add a marine receiver that is satellite radio ready so they never lose a signal. It's also important to make sure there are plenty of options for inputs that support playing music from multiple devices to keep the party going!
  • Remote Control -  Being able to control your radio from around the boat means less getting up unnecessarily and adds some crucial convenience to your system. 
  • Marine Wires and Installation Accessories - Installing marine equipment requires special installation techniques and accessories designed for the marine environment, so we don't recommend you try to DIY it. 

From a basic radio and a few speakers to a major sound improvement, we've got the answers. Sound systems that rival any you'll find in homes or cars. Whether you are looking for 1500-watts-of-sound on your party boat, satellite radio that never fades, an LED spread for that perfect night cruise, or flat screen TVs with a tracking satellite, Freeman's can design a marine audio video system especially for you. Tricked out or buttoned down, nobody does it like Freeman's!

We have so many options when it comes to upgrading your boat that we don't have them all listed here. For more information: Contact the Freeman's location nearest you or ask a pro.

Better Sound = More Fun

There's nothing quite like the combination of good music and riding your favorite powersport vehicle. But trying to listen to music at high speeds with the wind whipping through your ears requires special audio gear made specifically for your motorcycle, UTV, ATV, golf cart, or any other specialty vehicle.

If you own a motorcycle or UTV you understand that thanks to factors like being open to the elements, listening to music in your powersports vehicle isn't the same as listening music in the car. Motorcycles, UTVs, and other toys have a lot in common with your boat as far as stereo systems are concerned:

  • they all need protection from the elements
  • they need to be audible at high speeds in the open air
  • there is specialized durable gear made to last through all of your adventures


In the world of aftermarket stereo systems, we talk about these lines of product as powersports audio. Included in this category are amplifiers, subwoofers, speakers, and receivers (head units/radios) that have special features specific to the high intensity powersports environment. These products are designed to be heard over the extreme road (or mud, or dirt!) noise and some of these products are sized specifically to fit these smaller vehicles. Powersports systems need to stand up to water, mud, dirt, and sun in a way that car systems do not. As a result, these products are built to be both waterproof and durable enough to keep your music pumping throughout your whole ride.

Whether you're on the open road, in the woods, on the green, or on the track, getting a specialized sound system for your motorcycle, utility or sports vehicle can sound a whole lot better.  Freeman's proudly offers the highest quality powersports audio systems from JL Audio, Kenwood, and Pioneer.
