I thought asked a similar question a while ago, but couldnt find it with a quick search.
Anyways, I felt the same way... electronics + water = BAD !!
But for the last 6 months or so, I have been washing out the inside of my jeep after every wheeling or camping trip.
I dont sit and spray water onto my speakers, deck, or any where on the front dash for that matter, but I do give it a quick once over. Im sure someone on here is gonna say "keep that water away from that dash!!" yes you should, but all I am saying is that when I wash the inside of my jeep, everything sees some kinda water. I have not had any sort of problems.
So the long round about way to answer your question... youre not being paranoid, just being cautious. thats good. but i think as long as youre careful, stock or aftermarket components will be fine, and no need for marine grade.
