The Old Stereo Enclosure
I had been meaning to address the issue of our boats stereo for a while and figured while doing the full Monty re-wire was as good a time as any.
The old stereo box bugged me because the PO (previous owner) had stained mahogany to match the teak. Most boat owners could live with this and never even notice, but the mismatch had me noticing it.
The major issue was the PO did not allow any room for air circulation in the old stereo enclosure. The stereo sat directly on the wood and scraped the edges as it slid in. It was so tight there was not even room for the face plate adapter which the stereo slides into.
To make a long story shorter the stereo would heat up, distort and eventually shut down due to over heating. Something needed to be done.
