    I have been loking to replace my radio in my 1997 sea ray 190 bowrider. The radio is installed in the dash. I was wondering if I need to go with the "marine grade" or can I INSTALL a quality car grade radio? What is the differnce? Also on the 6.5" speakers should I go marine grade or reg non paper speakers? any help is appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Brian
