I am going to check with Roswell on this, but I thought I would see if anyone else was seeing this.

I just bought a used 2014 G21 with less the 300 hours on it. Everything on the boat is perfect condition except the original equipment nautique installed roswell speakers. See pictures.

If I just saw the speakers without the boat I would think the boat had spent significant time in saltwater. But that's the thing. It hasn't. I have examined the boat and everything is like new in the whole boat EXCEPT these speakers.

They were really OEM installed...weird.

I will check with Roswell customer service, but I was curious if anyone else on the forum has seen this?

Did the boat come locally or is it from a humid/salty climate?

Even if it wasn't in salt water, if ithe boat was stored in that environment it could result in this kind of thing

Yep, florida boat...for sure humid...but boats are stored in humid lifts all the old boat - like many many others is tucked in a humid lift - for 8 years with 0 problems like that on anything in the boat.

Not sure what they would say, but I don't think that would be a reasonable excuse from Roswell do you?

Yea. But if it was stored humid and near the gulf I could see that happening, that salty air ruins things. Another thought- was the boat shipped to you during this winter? Were the speakers exposed to the elements? Salty roads?

I would suspect that your boat is still under bow to stern, I would think nautique would replace. I would suspect Roswell will respond in a similar way but who knows. Excuse? No excuse for that. I'm assuming this is an outcome of cost cutting from nautique and/or Roswell for oem equipment which is a shame.

I am just shocked that they would use a casing that could corrode. All our Roswell stuff is aluminium/pvd or stainless.

I want to recall I had a friend who works in marine audio tell me those model Roswell's had that issue. They made the Neptunes so they wouldn't have that issue. One of the reasons Nautique switched to JL too.

Man, that is a bummer but glad that the rest of the boat is perfect. I would pull them and have them powder coated and have a perfect boat!
