Marine Audio

Whether you’re building a brand new marine audio system, or replacing an old marine stereo, you’ll want to purchase a receiver that has all the features you need to listen to your music out on the water – as well as a design that protects it from the harsh marine environment. Specially made marine stereo systems have completely water resistant designs, are UV resistant, are designed with anti-corrosive components, and most feature large buttons so that they are easy to control in a moving boat. In addition, marine audio receivers come with a wide variety of ways to listen to your music – including auxiliary inputs, Satellite Radio, and Bluetooth to listen wirelessly. So, without further hesitation, here are the top three marine audio receivers with Bluetooth technology!

Bluetooth Amps

RE Audio BT900.4

As the Sonic Electronix team walked around the International CES show in Las Vegas this year, one improvement in the car audio industry that stood out to us was the large amount of Bluetooth Car Amplifiers. In 2014, there were a couple Bluetooth Amps, such as the Kicker PXiBT amp and RE Audio’s BT900.4 amplifier. However, this year there were a lot more Bluetooth amps out on the show floor. Cerwin Vega, Infinity, JBL, as well as Kicker all released new Bluetooth Amps that are sure to change the way you listen to music in your vehicle! Each of these Bluetooth amps features cutting-edge technology which will improve your system.

1Seamless Connectivity

Bringing Bluetooth technology to car amplifiers enables an extreme ease of connectivity. Even if your car stereo does not have Bluetooth, these car amplifiers make it extremely easy to connect your device via Bluetooth. In addition, to make things even easier, most models feature one touch pairing technology.

2Even More Features

In addition to Bluetooth, most of these newly released Bluetooth amplifiers that came out this year, come with other features that you wouldn’t be able to find in a non-Bluetooth amplifier. For example, the Infinity & JBL Bluetooth car amplifiers include “party mode,” which allows the user to share DJ control with up to three devices. Kicker‘s new bluetooth IQ Series amplifiers feature compatibility with their IQI interface, which allows connecting Bluetooth with a microphone to up to four IQ amplifiers.

Best Buys – Car Speakers Under $150

NVX V Series Speakers

A common question here at Sonic Electronix is, “What are some good car speakers that aren’t too expensive?” We all know that the answer to this is subjective. Now I’m going to give you my opinion as the Copyeditor and Product Specialist for this category. And as we all know, opinions are like a*******. Everyone has one. So, here is mine.

For a price point we’re going to set the maximum at $150 per pair. This seems like a reasonable place to start. I will also be focusing on coaxial speakers this time as this is what most people buy.

MB Quart Premium Series

The Premium Series is MB Quarts finest and top of the line speakers. Using the 40mm inverted dome Titanium WideSphere, top quality resonant basket and Composite Cone, the Premium line of speakers are a perfect choice for anyone looking to upgrade their speakers.

They come in a variety of sizes to suit everyone’s needs. They will definitely be on the brighter side of the sound spectrum due to the textile (titanium) tweeter and their WideSphere technology provides a wider high frequency soundstage for predictable high-end performance in nearly any mounting location. These are great for people who like to listen to their music loud or with the windows down. They do have a full sound and they are definitely the best MB Quart has to offer as far as coaxial speakers are concerned.

NVX V-Series

NVX V Series SpeakersThe V-Series from NVX are truly amazing. Naturally the bar was set high for these speakers as I have been thoroughly impressed with the X & N-Series offerings which preceded them, but the V’s blew away my expectations. With just the power from a standard head unit, these speakers lit up the interior of our demo car with brilliant highs and rich, powerful mids which really brought the music to life. The V-Series are available in a complete range of shapes and sizes to fit any application, and their highly efficient design ensures premium performance with nearly any power source.

Infinity Kappa Series

Infinity’s Kappa Series feature proprietary Injected Carbon Glass Matrix (iCGM) frames and patented formed-glass-fiber Plus One woofer cones. Each speaker’s coaxially mounted UniPivot tweeter is a soft-dome, edge-driven fabric diaphragm for improved power handling and wide high-frequency dispersion. The 2-ohm nominal impedance of the Infinity Kappa coaxial speakers allows compensation for any added resistance in thin factory-installed speaker wiring and provides more output than factory speakers in its class.

The high sensitivity of the Kappa Series makes it ideal for upgrading a factory-installed system’s existing speakers with very noticeable fidelity improvements. The beautiful chrome inserts on the grille match modern interiors, and thereInfinity Kappa Speakers are no visible mounting screws. With a modern look, articulate highs and strong lows, the Kappa series speakers are perfect for any factory or aftermarket sound system.
