Garmin releases SS3i marine speakers
Garmin has released details of its new Fusion Signature Series 3i marine speakers, which feature speakers, subwoofers and wake tower speakers designed for use on boats.
The leading marine electronics manufacturer says its Signature Series 3i features new water-resistant connectors that protect against water ingress and simplify the installation process.
Delivering new grille colour options and added protection against the marine environment, the series includes LED-illuminated sport, non-illuminated sport, and classic styles that offer customisation options for boat owners.
“The Signature Series 3i combines the modern style and superior sound boaters want with the added layers of marine protection they need,” says Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “From centre consoles and yachts to wake boats and pontoons, this new range is built for life on the water. Whether a factory installation or aftermarket retrofit, the new connector solutions make installation a breeze so our customers can enjoy an unmatched entertainment experience without the hassle.”
The series adds a new metallic ‘Sports Gray’ grille option, designed to complement a variety of boat types and preferences. The ‘Sports Gray’ model also features durable materials that Garmin says are engineered to endure season after season onboard.
For even greater sound definition and higher power output, the series includes CURV cone technology. This woven fibre composite contributes to a lighter and stronger speaker design that helps the Signature Series 3i project high-quality audio over engine noise, even while cutting through the waves.
When fully integrated with a Fusion DSP-enabled stereo, Garmin says these speakers maximise performance and enhance ease-of-use for Fusion products by delivering optimised sound reproduction to each individual zone.
With a full Fusion audio system on board, boaters can enjoy the benefit of both premium onboard entertainment and a seamless, tune-free setup and installation thanks to the Fusion-Link app.
Offered in illuminated and non-illuminated Sport Grey and Sport White styles – along with classic white styles – the Signature Series 3i includes a variety of size options, including: 6.5-, 7.7- and 8.8-inch speakers; 10- and 12-inch subwoofers; and 6.5-inch wake tower speakers.
Signature Series 3i is water-rated to IP65 with ISO12216 compliance and engineered to withstand harsh marine elements such as salt fog, water, dust and UV. The full range also includes a 3-year consumer warranty.
Signature Series 3i speakers, subwoofers and wake tower speakers are available for purchase with prices ranging from £299 to £599.
