Default Small stereo for CC

Hello all, this is my first post on here. I have a Pursuit 2470 and want to add some music to the boat this year. I've filled the console with two simrad and one garmin MFD, so I don't have a ton of space.

I was thinking of the Fusion MA205, but don't know much about it.

Any suggestions for a stereo (that can do sat radio) for a not much space left center console?

Thanks,

Tom

I have the Fusion 205 and have been happy with it. I like it because it didn't take up a lot of real estate in the console.

Portable Blutooth speakers and a smart phone.

X2 on the Fusion RA 205. Great unit, sounds awesome with my JL Audio 6.5" speakers. Best thing is that it's waterproof out of the box, no need to install it inside ugly cases. I've been very happy with it.

I have one also an love it. I didn't want to take up the space with a bigger unit. It will do everything you need it to.

And fusion has great customer service. I did have to return mine once, they amp itself went out in it, and another was a software update that they worked with me on. Had no trouble with either transaction. Now i have an amp for my speakers.

Thanks everyone. Defender will be getting my $ for this unit at their warehouse sale this weekend. I think I'm going with the 7" fusion speakers. No extra amp for now-i will see how it sounds and add later if needed. I'm not planning on being able to hear it at cruising speed, but drifting for sharks or at dock I want some entertainment.

Thanks for the thoughts.
