JL Audio: now standard

All 2022 Harris Luxury Pontoon Boats including the All-New Grand Mariner

JL Audio, a manufacturer of premium marine audio solutions, today announced that their audio solutions will be standard on all 2022 model Harris pontoon boat and luxury pontoon boat models, including the newly redesigned Grand Mariner. Three audio packages will be available for the Grand Mariner: standard, diamond, and platinum. Each package is made entirely from JL Audio products.

JL Audio works closely with Harris during the design phase to assess the boat’s area and determine the best place for audio components. JL Audio and Harris collaborated to create an elevated soundstage that was perfectly suited for the use of Pontoons in the Grand Mariner 2022 model year. The full-range speakers were moved to the entertainment area and placed in the seatback. The subtle changes resulted in sound immersion for all passengers on the boat.

Ora Freeman, Director OEM sales, North America, JL Audio, stated that audio systems can be integrated into boats and designed by audio experts to produce an amazing listening experience. “We worked with Harris’s design team to develop the Grand Mariner. We used our team’s deep understanding of open-air Acoustics to engineer an audio system that elevates music enjoyment on the water.

Platinum – This package combines Standard and Diamond audio packages and upgrades the components to Marine Amplifiers (MVi) reference-grade marine amplifiers with integrated DSP, M6 marine coaxial speakers and Transflective(tm), RGB lighting. Two subwoofers are also included in custom enclosures

“Harris’s Grand Mariner launch is yet another example of Harris and JL Audio’s historic partnership in delivering exceptional audio experiences for our customers.

Our premium Harris models include A system. This system provides superior sound quality, richness and user customization. Harris has a wide range of audio packages that will enhance any boater’s experience on the water. We are grateful to JL for their partnership and the collaboration between our teams throughout each phase of the design process to deliver exceptional customer experiences.” Rusty Kucher is Category Director, Pontoons, Brunswick Corporation.

JL Audio unveils a premium audio system for new Sea-Doo Switch Pontoons

A manufacturer of premium marine audio solutions, announced that it has created a premium audio upgrade for all-new Sea-Doo Switch pontoon boat models in collaboration with BRP.

JL Audio has fine-tuned this marine-grade audio solution to produce powerful, clear sound while blasting through water at high speed. It does not compromise the modularity and flexibility of the pontoon. JL Audio created their audio solution to seamlessly fit into the Sea-Doo Switch modular deck that ties into the Sea-Doo Switch corner tables with LinQ quick-attach tiles. You can charge all your devices with the 4 cup holders and 4 USB ports.

Our engineering team is skilled at working with boat builders in order to create balanced marine audio systems that provide the best soundstage in open air environments. We worked closely with BRP to create a system that provides optimal performance for a pontoon, while not compromising the Sea-Doo Switch’s modular floor plan,” Ora Freeman (Director OEM Sales, North America). The JL Audio sound system, accent lighting, and USB ports are packed into the same space as side tables to provide more functionality and enjoyment on the water.

Four 6.5-inch Coaxial M3 speakers are included in the solution. They are powered by a 4-channel MX amplifier of 280-watts and a TW3 enclosed subwoofer with 500-watt mono MX amplifier. The Premium Audio System for Sea-Doo Switch has been fine-tuned to provide maximum open-air performance with powerful, deep bass. The Sea-Doo Switch’ M3 coaxial speakers are equipped with RGB illumination. This is connected to the pontoon’s app-based RGB controller.

The Premium Audio System for Sea-Doo Switch is made of high-quality, durable materials that resist corrosion. They can withstand years of harsh marine elements. The  Premium Audio System Sea-Doo Switch is available in full detail.
