- The best "Short" soundbar on the market
The Wet Sounds Stealth 6 Ultra HD is the most feature packed, "short" sound bar that we offer. There are two general sizes of soundbars, those 28" and longer and those under 28". This sound bar measures 20.70" long and comes with 6 speakers, (4) 3" drivers and (2) 1" titanium tweeters. The speakers are powered by an internal, 200 watt amplifier that has a built-in DSP to deliver crystal clear highs and better-than-you-expect bass performance. In addition to having a built-in 200 watt amplifier, the Wet Sounds Stealth 10 Ultra HD also has Bluetooth built-in and a full controller that is located in the center of the sound bar. You can adjust volume, change tracks, change sources, and you power the soundbar on and off via the controller in the center.
For mounting, the Wet Sounds Stealth 6 Ultra HD comes with both "L" brackets and top mount brackets. The top, back, and bottom of the soundbar are slotted to accept the Wet Sounds slider mounts if you want to mount it to select sizes of round or square tubing. The Stealth 10 Ultra HD includes a remote control so that you can control the soundbar when it is not directly within reach, but the remote does not turn the sound bar on and off. In addition to Bluetooth, the Stealth 10 Ultra HD has an 3.5mm auxiliary input and a 3.5mm output that allows you to connect to a Wet Sounds Stealth AS subwoofer, an external amplifier, or another Wet Sounds soundbar such as the Surge or Core.
Wet Sounds has a patent on their sound bar design and they were the first to come up with this idea for both powersports and marine applications. This product is IP67 rated and can withstand anything mother nature throws at is. If you want to add a stereo or speakers to your boat, but you don't want to cut holes in your hull, a Wet Sounds soundbar is the best option. Keep your hull intact. We sell speakers so we love when people do cut holes in a boat, but if you don't have to, and you don't want to, DON'T DO IT. You can still get great sound from a sound bar. You can buy Wet Sounds products from MarineStereo.com with confidence. We are one of only a handful of companies that are authorized to sell Wet Sounds online. If you don't buy authorized, you don't have a warranty!
How do I know which one to get?
The most important factor when purchasing a marine soundbar is the length. You want to buy the longest sound bar you can fit for your ideal mounting location. There are a ton of variables that impact the mounting location so there is not absolute answer, but measure the distances you have and compare those with the lengths of the soundbar to find the ideal length for your boat or UTV.
How does the soundbar mount?
The sound bar includes "L" brackets and top mount brackets with the soundbar. This will allow you to easily mount it to a flat surface. In addition, the top, back, and bottom of the sound bar
are slotted to accept the Wet Sounds slider brackets. When you combine the slider brackets and the tube clamps, you can easily mount your Wet Sounds sound bar to select sizes of round and square tubing. The slider brackets move in and out so that you can be sure to clear and angled support tubes.
How do you wire the soundbar?
The soundbar uses 3 wires for power. The thick, red wire goes to the positive terminal on your battery. The large black wire goes to negative on your battery. There is also a blue remote wire that is used for switched, 12v power. This allows you turn the sound bar on and off with a switch or with the radio. When wired to the remote wire on your head unit, the Surge or Core soundbar will turn on and off when the radio turns on and off.
Is the soundbar going to be loud enough when out on the water?
The soundbar will play loud enough for those on the boat while at speed, out on the water. Both the 6 speaker and 10 speaker models will play much louder than you probably expect. The 10 speaker is obviously going to play louder than the 6 speaker because it has more power and more speakers.
Do I need to add a subwoofer?
Adding a Wet Sounds Stealth AS powered subwoofer to your soundbar will fill out the bottom end of your music. Bass is difficult in an open air environment that you get on both boats and UTVs. While the soundbars deliver much better bass output than you would expect, you can't substitute the output you get from a subwoofer. Adding a Stealth AS-10, AS-8, or AS-6 subwoofer will improve both the sub-bass and mid-bass response of your soundbar stereo system.
