Product Description

The MS-RA50 is Fusion’s most compact marine stereo ever, with a shallow mounting depth of 2 1/8", perfect for space-conscious installations on small boats and personal watercraft. It includes iPod® or iPhone® music playback and Fusion’s innovative easy to use music interface. A “True Marine” alternative to the standard car stereos you find installed on many small boats, MS-RA50 is built specifically for use on the water, meeting IPX5 water-resistant standards. The MS-RA50 is equipped with a rugged electrically-isolated die-cast aluminum chassis, to maintain isolation between battery negative and the hull of your metal boat. The chassis acts as a heat sink for the entire stereo, removing the need for an external cooling fan.

    Comments about Fusion MS-RA50 Marine Stereo:

    I have had several old radios that had decent radio reception of many channels. This one only receives 1-2 channels clearly. If I press scan it mostly only comes up with one station. I took out an older radio because I wanted to use my ipod. The older radio had a much better receiver.

      Comments about Fusion MS-RA50 Marine Stereo:

      Was in the market for a stereo for my 2013 Crestliner Kodiak 16sc. After some trial and error, some research and speaking with John from the Dedham Ma store I found this model. Great performance, perfect size and only having space for 2 speakers in my boat this 2 channel head unit is perfect, not wasting 2 channels on a 4 channel head unit. This unit is amazing- Fusion makes a whole line of great products for any size application! John also got me the gimbal mount and aux in connector for a clean- professional install. Thanks again John and West Marine Crew!

        Comments about Fusion MS-RA50 Marine Stereo:

        I liked the RA50 so much, in my boat, that I purchased this one for my classic 1983 Jeep CJ7 Laredo. This little radio beats all the other radios I had previously in my Jeep. Better sound and I know the radio will continue to work even if a little rain gets on it, not like the other ones I had in the past. Sounds really great with lots of power and was less than half the price of the others I had. I also used two boat speakers and could not be happier.
