Every boat needs a great head unit. The headunit that we were really impressed with is Infinity’s PRV250.

Speakers on your boat are critical for that high quality sound y’all are looking for! The new Kicker 8″ KM84LCW and 6.5″ KM654LCW light up speakers are some amazing speakers that we highly recommend.

In addition, they can put out 130 watts of RMS power per pair and come with a 1″ titanium dome tweeter for higher frequencies. However, their most impressive feature are the multi-color LED lights which light up right behind the protective grills and are adjustable by remote.


Kicker also released the KM Series subwoofers to really give you the high quality sound you desire this summer.  These 10″ marine subwoofers feature the same great LED technology as the KM Series speakers! They also feature an injection molded cone, tough Santoprene surround, and come in a Single 2-Ohm model and Single 4-Ohm model with a rated RMS power of 150 watts. Along with the subwoofer, you also get a matching basket with a protective, bolt-through grille which includes a smart, integrated moisture-draining system, making them perfect for marine weather conditions!

They feature platinum 5-way binding posts, waterproof mid ranges and tweeters and an automotive-grade paint finish. These tower speakers are perfect for any summer activity out on the water being that they are also salt, fog, and UV certified!

MTX’s Wet Series Marine Amplifiers are some amazing amplifiers to really power the sound system on your boat! They were compactly designed in a small chassis, making them easily installed on any marine vehicle. In addition, they feature stainless steel harware, surface mount technology, plastic splash guard over control-adjustments, and a conformal coated circuit board – which makes these amps ideal for powering your sound system while protecting it at the same time!

At the show, one of our favorite headphone companies, Audio Technica, showed off their four brand new models of M-Series professional monitor headphones to add to their product line. They are all set to be released this February. The top of the line model is the ATH-M50x and has the added feature of detachable cables. The contoured earcups seal tight for excellent sound isolation and the pro-grade materials are durable, yet comfortable.


The other three models are the ATH-M40x, ATH-M30x, and the ATH-M20x. The ATHM40x also features the detachable cables and are tuned flat for incredibly accurate audio monitoring across an extended frequency range. The ATH-M30x and ATH-M20x headphones are tuned for highly detailed audio, with strong mid-range definition, and are highly versatile monitoring headphones which are ideal for studio tracking and mixing.
