Stereo Tuner Upgrade on 2009 Malibu LSV


Recommended Posts

Hey there everyone,

I am considering taking out my old stock Malibu stereo tuner and replacing it with a newer, bluetooth capable tuner, to be able to connect to my phone while on the water. 

However, I am concerned that this change will require me to change something else in my marine audio compartment.

If I upgrade the tuner, do I need to upgrade anything else? (amps, black box, wires?) I have two RF amps and a JBL audio black box. My old tuner is also 5.5 inches by 2.75 inches.

Also, if anyone has any recommendations about which bluetooth tuner I should upgrade to, I'd appreciate the help very much!

Fusion and Infinity make similar units.  Depending on the space available, one of them may fit with a similar footprint.  WHY do mfgs. not use standard sizes?

These are one in the same. The interface on the helm is just a wired remote.
