    I have alpine unit and 2 Bluetooth remotes. Wanting something I don’t have to plug IPad or phones in for music. What’s good choice ? I know some fiberglass work has to be done. Looks like most other Bt remotes are smaller .

    What head unit model do you have? All you need is a rear AUX RCA input and you can add a universal blue tooth receiver to stream music. Wet Sounds offers 3 models https://wetsounds.com/, Kicker offers one https://wetsounds.com/ just to name a few quality models.

    What wireless remotes are you looking at? I dont know if any that are wireless since Alpine got out of the marine source unit biz about 4 years ago.

    Check out the fusion 700 series. It is an amazing unit.

    The head unit takes a separate Bt module to work. It is very unreliable! I’ve had it going to yank out
