POLY-PLANAR
Stereo Weather Enclosure

$67.99

Model # 548594 | Mfg # WC-400
In stock online.
The WC400 is waterproof housing that surrounds your stereo on all sides for maximum protection. A gasket-sealed, polycarbonate splash cover on the front of the rugged ABS enclosure prevents water from entering. The hinged cover lifts easily and remains out of the way in any of several positions. When open, it maintains partial splash protection while still allowing access to stereo controls. Wires and a rear connector let you hook up the stereo and antenna through the housing. A gimbal mounting bracket permits installation above or below the dash, under an electronic box or on any convenient horizontal surface.

Features:

  • Accommodates any dual post, removable and DIN-style stereos
  • High Impact ABS Housing
  • Stainless Steel Bracket
  • Dash or Overhead Mounting
  • Mounting Hardware Included
  • Available in Black (Part# WC400B) or White (Part# WC400) color

In order to remain waterproof the unit is "pre wired" which requires multiple splices on each wire to connect your stereo. While that is no problem for experienced installers it leaves plenty of room for error if you are a beginner. However, this would be a good feature if the unit was actually waterproof. After some rain the other day I went on the boat to check everything out and there was a ton of water inside the enclosure. This is a complete waste of money. My head unit is not ruined and I will be bringing both that and the enclosure back to WM tomorrow expecting a full refund.

        Comments about Poly-planar Stereo Weather Enclosure:

        Bought this because it said the mounting bracket was metal. Ends up it is not. Will see how long it lasts with the radio in it and bouncing on waves. Getting the radio wires connected and everything back in the case took some time. It's just plastic so I hope it holds up.

              Wow, I read the reviews and was hesitant to buy it based on some of the feedback. I found this product easy to install, the seal mentioned in some of the other feedbacks was not an issue at all. Well designed, looks great, love it! Would buy this again!

                  The rubber seal was a pain but after some fiddling it went together fine. Works well, but I would not mount this were it is directly exposed to the elements. I mounted mine inside my center console.
