Prestige Car Audio and Marine of Metairie knows just how important great sound is on the water. Whether it’s connecting your smartphone’s music library, delivering low bass or playing sound to entertain the party, we know how to design and install amazing marine audio systems.
All Types of Boats
We work on all types of boats from charter fishing boats, recreational ski boats and everything in between. We ensure our work meets all marine-grade standards of installation so that regardless of how many passengers you have, you have the peace-of-mind that the installation was done right. While we prefer to have the boats in our shop, we can travel to a marina or dock for those boats permanently in the water.
All of the marine electronics we offer are truly marine-grade products. They aren’t just painted white and stamped with “marine”; we take pride in the fact we do not compromise on substandard electronics for our clients’ boats. As the Louisiana coastal environment can be harsh, we simply don’t take any chances. We take pride in providing our clients the requisite information on the differences between standard car electronics and marine electronics so that they can make informed decisions.
Full Marine Audio Systems
We can install a complete marine audio system that is designed to overcome the noises of the water, wind and also takes into account the boat has (largely) open spaces that are an entirely different environment than a car interior. Typically we stagger the position of speakers to gain more even sound distribution and pair them with appropriately sized amplifiers that boost the sound levels to overcome ambient noises. We also pay attention to the added electrical requirements so that the boat’s primary and secondary battery banks do not get over taxed. Our expert marine installation technicians have years of experience in this area and there is no installation too big or too small.
Custom Subwoofer Enclosures
We can build custom subwoofer solutions into the boat where, many times, you need not even see the subwoofer(s). This retains more room for seating and storage and keeps the subwoofer cones out of harm’s way. While every boat solution is different, we have the requisite fabrication capacity to create just about any solution that can be upholstered or finished to look as if it was an original part of the boat.
Wakeboard or Ski Towers
We also install specialty speakers intended for wakeboard or ski towers. These are designed to project the sound well behind the boat so that the skier can hear the music. These also double as great party speakers when anchored around other boats. Their highly efficient design makes them very effective with moderately powered amplifiers, something again which our knowledgeable system designers always consider.
Come by and see us
The best way for us to recommend any marine audio system enhancements is to call us at (504) 833-2824 and schedule a no-cost consultation at our store in Metairie, just outside of New Orleans, or on site if your boat is ocean-going and in a marina. We can check out your boat and evaluate your existing audio system to make thoughtful and effective recommendations for upgrading. We enjoy educating our clients on what’s possible and we look forward to serving you.
