Continuing to set the benchmark for marine audio entertainment, FUSION® Entertainment is showcasing its impressive new range of speakers that cater to every level of performance and price point at METSTRADE 2018.
Speakers from across the spectrum
Fusion’s premium Signature Series range has been expanded with the new Classic Black Grill design for the ultimate in luxury styling, a new Signature Tweeter, and the addition of the Tower Speakers specifically designed for performance and high-quality acoustic delivery for the wake boat market. The new XS Series features FUSION®‘s trademark quality audio reproduction, enhanced marine aesthetics and an LED lighting solution, all at a mid-range price point. And finally, for the lower price point there is the new EL Series, that offers superior sound in a compact design, and the revamped Panel Stereo now suitable for installation in an open air environment. All of the speakers in these ranges are rated IP65 for water and dust ingress protection and meets industry standards for UV and salt fog protection. This makes them perfect for either indoor or outdoor installation on any vessel.
Chris Baird, Managing Director of New-Zealand based FUSION® Entertainment, says, “We appreciate that every boat owner has a different audio performance requirement and budget, so we have invested heavily in a broad range of speakers that cater for every need. We’ve listened to our customers’ requests and we’re excited to present this comprehensive range of products that, no matter what the size and price point, deliver the performance and quality of sound that FUSION® is famous for.”
Signature Series Wake Tower Speakers and Tweeters
The superior acoustic design and engineering make FUSION® Entertainment’s Signature Series speakers the perfect choice for premium, purpose-built marine audio and entertainment systems. Delivering up to 330 watts of power with longer throw, greater cut through and precisely calculated enclosure parameters, the Signature Series Wake Tower Speakers are specifically designed for wake boats and deliver crystal clear audio at all volume levels. The speakers can be mounted on either fixed or swivel mounts, and offer LED lighting in either Striking Blue or Sparkling White. They are engineered with True Marine protection to withstand the harsh marine environment, so you can rest assured that no amount of sea spray can stop the fun.
Further adding to the Signature Series range, Fusion has introduced a Tweeter to address the chanlanges faced when balancing speaker placment and sound perfomance. The Signature Series Tweeter enables customers to monut the compact tweeter in an optimum listining position to deliver quality high frequncies for an enhanced entertainmnet experience. Each tweeter produces an impressive 330 watts peak power with a 1” voice coil, neodymium pot magnet system and aluminium tweeter dome for quality high frequency detail in your music.
The perfect complement for Fusion’s Signature Series speakers and DSP-enabled stereos, these tweeters are designed to enhance the audio reproduction for a truly spectacular musical experience on board.
The XS Series combine optimised speaker drivers with separate tweeters to produce a full range of audio reproduction that consistently delivers high quality audio at all volume levels. The XS Series features a range of 4”, 6.5” and 7.7” speakers making it easy to upgrade your tired speakers and giving customers versitility of instalation based on avalable space on board without sacraficing on quality. The sports style speakers throughout the series feature an innovative translucent cone to provide bright and even LED illumination on board in a range of colours, so you can choose a colour to match the mood, set the tone or complement your music.
The series also includes a new 10” subwoofer designed to add low frequencies to your audio system, which can be traditionally wired into your system through an amplifier. Alternatively, create a 2.1 audio zone by connecting two speakers and a subwoofer directly to a Fusion multi-zone stereo with DSP, without the need to use an external amplifier.
The low profile speaker grilles create a sleeker design which reduces the risk of damage from people and objects brushing past them due to their low protrusion from the wall. Two grille colours are supplied with both the Sports style and Classic style speakers – Sports White and Sports Grey, or Classic White and Classic Black, and the subwoofer is available in both Sports White and Sports Grey.
Ideal for installation where mounting depth is limited, the EL Series features a clever shallow basket design with a depth of just 43mm, which is perfect for incorporating into thin wall cavities and smaller spaces, without compromising on sound quality. The new EL Series range is available in two styles, Classic or Sports, with the Sports style speakers offering a multi-colour LED lighting option for a visually stimulating on-board audio experience. There are four different grille designs to complement the design of any vessel.
An optional Lighting control wireless remote is available for the XS and EL series to take full advantage of the LED’s, offering a colour wheel to select your favourite colour for static display, or select the dynamic feature and watch your speakers cycle through colour options enhancing the atmosphere. The remote can control up to three lighting zones and functions up to 33 feet from the speaker lighting control module.
Purpose-built for performance in the marine environment, the Panel-Stereo is the ultimate all-in-one audio entertainment solution, now built to withstand outdoor environments with a new design. The Panel-Stereo combines all the elements required for excellent audio reproduction – Class D amplification, Fusion Digital Signal Processing (DSP), dual 3-inch speakers and a passive base radiator all inside a single tuned enclosure. With AM/FM capabilities, USB, AUX and Bluetooth streaming source options, the freedom of control via the Free Fusion-Link App and the nw Fusion ARX wirless remote, and exceptional sound reproduction with flexible installation options, the Panel-Stereo is an ode to FUSION’s dedication to offering innovative solutions that enhance personal leisure time.
