Bluetooth Marine Soundbar Sets New Standard
Awesome music can be as much a part of boating as sunshine. With the new Infinity by Harman® Kappa 4100MSB Amplified Marine Soundbar from Prospec Electronics, crystal clear audio performance is now available in a super flexible, compact, separable speaker system.
Weather and splash proof, the Kappa Marine Soundbar features four 4” excursion woofers and two 2” edge-driven dome tweeters, and can be separated into two tower sections to optimize sound quality. With two channel, full-range left and right outputs, the device can be expanded with additional components. Matched with the integrated 120W x 2 Class-D Amplifier, it produces audio that rivals premium home and automotive systems.
The quick-release, shockproof mounting system isn’t the only adaptable feature of the Kappa Marine Soundbar. It comes with Bluetooth, 3.5mm and RCA inputs, and includes intelligent priority switching that eliminates manual source selection. On Party Mode, three Bluetooth devices can connect to the Soundbar simultaneously, streaming one AVRCP profile at a time while pausing the others. And, when it’s time to capture the action, there’s a built-in GoPro shoe.
The Kappa Marine Soundbar comes with a detachable RF remote – perfect for a boat, it doesn’t need to be aimed at the device, and functions even in bright sunlight. It also features a glowing red LED display that flashes in tempo with the music. A dual-level LED down light adds functionality, and a power protection LED alerts to problems such as overcurrent, overvoltage, overtemp, and DC offset. A micro USB connection future-proofs the device for software updates.
The Infinity Kappa 4100MSB Amplified Marine Soundbar measures 31.5”L x 6.1”W x 5”H, weighs 22.7 lbs., and retails for $900.00. The optional Separation Kit runs $89.95. For more information visit www.prospecelectronics.com

Link-6 VHF Radio Provides Safety And Economy
Lorance®, a world-wide leader in fishing electronics since 1957, recently introduced their new Link-6, rugged and dependable Class-D digital selective calling (DSC) marine VHF radio. The low-profile, fixed mount Link-6 is ideal for a variety of boats from small RIBs to larger sportfishing vessels, and is economically priced.
“Effective communication on the water is the foundation of prudent seamanship,” said Navico CEO, Leif Ottosson. “Our customers have come to expect all Lorance products to include intuitive control, reliable operation, and rugged dependability.”
The Link-6 gives boaters the ability to go anywhere with peace of mind with its easy and intuitive operation, designed into a stylish and affordable package. Nighttime visibility has been optimized with an inverted white-on-black night mode to reduce light emission from the display and preserve night vision, and the day mode, high-contrast black-on-white display is clearly visible in bright sunlight. A rotary dial makes channel selection easy, while large amply-spaced buttons provide quick access to all key functions, even with gloves on. A dedicated Channel 16 key is included on both the radio front panel and its four-button mic, giving boaters instant access to the emergency channel. An integrated Distress button provides automated DSC distress calling also.
Table-top, overhead, or bulkhead installation is easy with an included gimbal bracket, and flush-mount installation is also supported with an easy front-mount solution.
The Lorance Link-6 VHF Marine Radio is available in black or white at a suggested retail price of $189.00. For more information go online at www.lorance.com
