Can you use a regular amp on a boat?
They cause problems like corrosion, oxidation, and potentially can damage electronic parts inside an amplifier. While it’s possible to use a car amp in a boat it’s really not a great idea because of this. This helps prevent corrosion and damage both to the amp’s parts but also electronic conductors and solder points.
Can I use car audio in a boat?
You are right you could put a car stereo in a boat and would generally be fine if you know that you would be careful to not get it wet (or touch it with wet hands/fingers).
Do you need a marine amplifier?
Most marine stereos have an amplifier built in and some of them are surprisingly powerful. Human bodies can really dampen sound, so the more people, the more power you will need from your amp. If you want a lot of thump and you plan on using a subwoofer, then you absolutely need an amplifier for it.
