Recently a Princecraft Pontoon owner trusted Epic Audio to get their boat summer-equipped and ready to turn some heads with a few custom upgrades to the audio system. We added a few REVO 6 XS-W-SS High Output Component Style 6.5″ Marine Coaxial Speakers from the good folks at Wet Sounds. We also equipped this Princecraft with Fusion Marine’s IPX7 NMEA 2000 Wired Remote for a nice low profile look that still delivers all the features you’re looking for.
One of the best performing marine coaxial speakers on the market, the REVO Series features a high power design to deliver incredible sound! Using a powerful 6.5″ mid driver with a full rubber santoprene spider & surround suspension system, heavy duty injection-molded composite frame, as well as a injection-molded composite cone and high output 1″ titanium dome tweeter to give you the ultimate sound experience. Not only that, like with all REVO series speakers, you can go even further with the included RGB backlighting, giving you the ability to add some accent light in any color using a Wet Sounds RGB Controller(not included). This unique combination makes the REVO Series a TRUE High Performance Marine Class family of speakers.
IPX7 NMEA 2000 Wired Remote is an out of the box solution for adding localized control of a compatible Fusion marine entertainment system to any vessel.
The IPX7 features a sleek new innovation: the glass helm flush mounting option. You can now choose either a flat mount for a stunning glass helm finish, or you can easily install with the conventional flush mount finish. Either way, the feature packed MS-NRX300 will provide everything you want from a wired remote and more.
Multi-Zone Technology: Install a remote in each independent audio zone, up to four zones depending on your Fusion marine entertainment system, to create localized volume control, as well as, global source control. Now you have even more control in creating a customized audio entertainment experience around your vessel.
IPX7 Water Resistant: Perfect for installation on a swim platform, deck or within the cabins, the MS-NRX300 is designed and engineered for the marine environment.
NMEA 2000 Certified: The MS-NRX300 is certified for connection to any NMEA 2000 network making for a quick and easy installation. Once connected, the wired remote will double as a NMEA repeater.
Optically Bonded 2.6” LCD Display: the MS-NRX300 sports a large, high contrast, daylight viewable display making it easy to navigate and stay in control of your audio entertainment experience.
NMEA 2000 Repeater: The MS-NRX300 remote control can be configured to display supported NMEA2000 network
