Conclusion: Good radio, bought primarily for the AUX port so I could use an iPod and get rid of all the CD's in my boat. No problems and it was a direct replacement for the Clarion that was in the boat.

Conclusion: This product was ordered for my 17.5 fibergalss boat. There was no stereo installed at the time. I had odered this stereo based on reviews i had read online. So far the stereo is awesome! No problems whatsoever. Easy to use and nice to be able to play my Ipod on the water blasting through the stereo! I also have a waterproof case that was purchased separately, just in case. I would recommend this stereo unit to anyone on the water that enjoys qualitly sound!
Conclusion: Installed this receiver in my boat 07/22/2010 and enjoyed the rest of the boating season. Works well great sounds. I hooked my TV and Play Station to the Clarion M109 with a switch over to produce a realistic sound for my boat entertainment system. Easy to control with the remote.
Conclusion: The Clarion M109 deck that I bought from Sonic is a great deck and a great buy! It is primarily designed for a marine environment and so has extra protection for the circuitry. I work in construction so even though there's no salt air I don't think so that extra protection can hurt. I wanted a Clarion, because our trucks at work are prewired for Clarion, and I wanted the deck to be plug-and-play. This one was and it's an awesome deck, at an awesome price!
