This week Fusion Audio announced their all-new Signature Series 3 Wake Tower Speakers. The Signature Series 3 lineup brings the quality boaters expect from Fusion Audio, while also adding industry-first CRGBW LED lighting to create an audio and visual hybrid for on-water entertainment.
Industry-first CRGBW Illumination
The Signature Series 3 Wake Tower Speakers will come in three sizes -- 6.5" 230-watt, 7.7" 280-watt, and 8.8" 330-watt to suit a wide range of layouts. They will be available in either Sports White or Sports Chrome color schemes to support nearly any color pattern on a wake or watersports boat.
The all-new CRGBW LED lighting will also combine standard RGB with Cool White and Warm White to offer a heretofore unseen spectrum of colors. Riders can experience a full color spectrum from premium pastels to vibrant hues to match any music, as well as the ability to create a more ambient on-water entertainment experience.
Premium Audio Performance
The acoustic properties of the Signature Series 3 are specifically optimized for wake boats. With longer throw, greater cut through, and a calculated enclosure volume they will reproduce crystal clear audio at all volumes.
Lightweight CURV cone material has been used in the wake tower speakers for greater definition and output, while also providing increased protection against the marine environments. A large diameter voice coil also delivers increased power when matched with the silk dome tweeter, which altogether creates a signature sound exclusive to the Signature Series 3.
Built for the Marine Environment
Designed for real-world boating applications, the Signature Series 3 lineup is rated IP65 for water and dust protection. True-Marine™ accredited with a 3-year warranty, they are also tested for protection against salt-fog and UV, so boaters can expect their speakers to be built to last season after season.
According to Garmin Vice President of Global Consumer Sales Dan Bartel, "(t)he Signature Series 3 Wake Tower Speakers add a unique flair and innovative design coupled with Fusion's premium sound quality. With CRGBW LEDs, there are thousands of possibilities for customizing the speaker system color and effects, so whether you're in the boat or riding the wake in tow, you'll enjoy an unparalleled audio entertainment experience."
The Signature Series 3 are currently available, and will carry an MSRP ranging from USD $699.99 to $1449.99 per system depending on size. Available sizes include the original 8.8", as well as the all-new 7.7" and 6.5", and a range of accessory mounting brackets (each sold separately) for easy installation.
