Leading Manufacturer Announces Weather Proof Plug-and-Play Solution with Bluetooth Streaming

Auckland, New Zealand – FUSION®, a worldwide leader in marine audio entertainment, announced today the release of a weather-proof version of all-in-one marine entertainment system – the Panel-Stereo Outdoor. Purpose-built for outdoor installations in marine environment, the Panel-Stereo is an ultimate all-weather audio entertainment solution. Combining all the elements required for excellent audio reproduction - Class D amplification, Digital Signal Processing (DSP), dual 3-inch speakers, a passive base radiator all inside a perfectly tuned enclosure. Offering AM/FM, USB, AUX and Bluetooth streaming source options, the freedom of control via the Free FUSION-Link App and new ARX wirless remote, exceptional sound reproduction from a single product and even more flexibility in installation options, FUSION Entertainment has created another incredible audio solution.

“When we launched the Panel-Stereo in May of this year it was very well received,” said Chris Baird, managing director of FUSION Entertainment. “We took the same top-quality components and compact form-factor and encased them in a weather-proof package. Now the incredibly versatile Panel-Stereo can be installed in outdoor and open-air environments adding even more options for our customers.”

Panel-Stereo allows boaters to enjoy the flexibility of audio control from anywhere in or on an vessel via Bluetooth from compatible Apple or Android devices running the free FUSION-Link™ app. Users can also enable stereo control from a compatible Garmin watch and the new FUSION ARX wireless remote via ANT™ Technology, providing the freedom to choose how and where to control audio entertainment on board. Audio control is also possible directly from the front face of the Panel-Stereo, using audible feedback, to guide the user through changing stations, music sources and saving pre-sets. Multi-language voice prompts include English, French, German, Dutch, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin and Spanish settings.

Offering three mounting options to suit the requirements of any installation, the Panel-Stereo is a seriously versatile product. Designed for surface mounting with the optional 43mm surface mounting spacer, Panel-Stereo can be installed directly onto any flat surface with no mounting cut-out required. Minimal depth also makes it ideal for installation in shallow wall cavities, with only a single cut-out, where standard speakers will not fit. Both flush and flat options are available with a premium finish.

FUSION’s Digital Signal Processing (DSP) optimizes audio to produce a technically superior listening experience. The stereo’s two 3-inch speakers and large-surface bass radiator inside the perfectly tuned enclosure, consistently deliver efficient Hi-Fi audio reproduction with an incredibly smooth frequency response.

Requiring only 12V DC power, ground and AM/FM connections, the Panel-Stereo is designed for quick and easy setup to provide a true plug-and-play audio entertainment solution.
