Clarion’s powerful and stylish 8”x12” marine tower speakers and 8.8 ”coaxial speakers with LED illumination deliver incredible sound with deep bass inside and outside of the boat
Cypress, Calif. October 4, 2016 – Clarion Corporation of America, a leader in consumer and commercial mobile electronics, today announced two new additions to their robust product line of high-performance marine-grade speakers. Clarion's marine speakers are specifically engineered to withstand the harsh marine environment without compromising the high-quality sound that OEM boat builders and boat owners expect from Clarion, while offering an aesthetic design quality a cut above the competition.
The new CM7123T is an impressive all-new 8”x12” wakeboard tower speaker set featuring a lightweight aluminum swivel mounting bracket with a 360-degree turning radius for added installation and application flexibility. The unique elliptical shape of the speakers offer a slimmer profile than competing round tower speakers, yet with a surface area larger than a 10-inch subwoofer, the speakers are capable of impressive deep bass that lets those inside the boat, and those on the other end of the ski rope, hear the music loud and clear.
The new CM2223RL is an LED-equipped marine-grade 8.8-inch diameter coaxial speaker set. The massive size of the CM2223RL’s full-range cone allows these speakers to clearly reproduce the full range of music, complete with crisp highs and thumping bass. The blue LED backlighting adds a cool ambiance to the interior of any boat.
“Whether you’re out deep sea fishing, or taking your friends and family out wakeboarding, our powerful marine speakers let you hear your music loudly, with impressive clarity and fidelity,” said Allen H. Gharapetian, Vice President of Marketing and Product Planning at Clarion Corporation of America. “Today’s boaters demand big, high quality sound while on water, and that has fueled a huge increase in market demand for powerful tower speakers and high fidelity marine-grade interior speakers. So, in true Clarion fashion, we addressed this demand by bringing to market new speakers that not only offer best-in-class durability against the elements, but incredible power handling, premium full-range sound quality, stylish design and unique features too.”
Recognized by the industry for their benchmark durability and reliability, every Clarion marine and powersports system, and accessory endures a battery of character defining tests. By replicating prolonged UV exposure, simulating the humid saltwater environment and rigorously testing for thermal shock to imitate quick changes in temperature, Clarion ensures that its marine line-up can withstand the rigors of the harshest environments season after season.
The CM7123R marine tower speakers are shipping now to boat builders and powersports manufacturers directly from Clarion, while a retail boxed version will be available through authorized national distributors and retailers. The CM2223RL is expected to ship in Q1 of 2017.
