Dual Zone Audio with Fixed Output

With this function, it is possible to split your boat into two discrete zones to enjoy different volume levels of entertainment.
For instance, the bow can be tuned-in to a higher volume level for enjoyment in the wind while the stern can enjoy the music at a lower volume to accommodate conversations.
Volume levels from the fixed zone are controlled by an optional external volume control device. This is ideal for separate areas such as salons, wakeboard towers, and open bows.

Enjoy Interactive Pandora® internet radio Anytime Anywhere

Pandora internet radio is at home in your boat. The source unit’s Pandora feature works together with the Pandora app on your smart device. Play songs while you feedback a “thumbs up” or “thumbs down” which is reflected in future selections. The Pandora app lets you bookmark Artists/Songs or even create your own station to customize your marine music experience.

Global Radio Tuner with Weather Band

The built-in multi-band tuner supports reception of radio stations just about anywhere in the world — which is nice when you’re sailing around the globe or just across the gulf. And with Weather Band you’ll always have the latest weather updates, including automatic reception of emergency weather information to keep your voyage as smooth as possible.

Front AUX Input for Convenient Connection

With AUX input connectors right on the front of the unit, it’s extremely easy to hookup an external audio source for enjoyment through your boat’s audio system.

3-Band EQ For Customizable Sound

In addition to providing 3 preset equalization patterns — BASS BOOST, IMPACT, and EXCITE — Clarion’s 3-Band EQ even lets you freely customize the level and range of the bass, midrange and treble portions of each pattern. You can tune the sound to your liking, depending on the category of music, for a more personalized and fulfilling listening experience.

Low Pass Filter for Subwoofer

Switching on the Low Pass Filter (LPF) will send only the low frequency range through specified outputs to ensure superb performance when connected to a subwoofer.

6-Channel 4-Volt RCA Outputs Make It Easy to Expand and Upgrade

Equipped with 6-channel line outputs, you have independent controls over each channel for amplification. Front and rear speakers will retain fader and balance control while the subwoofer levels can be adjusted from the source unit for on the fly adjustments.
