OLATHE, Kan./January 24, 2023 – Garmin (NYSE: GRMN), the world’s most innovative and recognized marine electronics manufacturer, today announced updates to the EL Series 6.5-inch Marine Speakers from Fusion® Entertainment, a Garmin brand. Engineered to deliver a high-quality audio experience at an entry-level price, these speakers now feature a water-resistant, injection-molded polypropylene (IMPP) cone for clean, clear audio reproduction. The IMPP cone comes standard on all EL Series models.
Combining both function and style, the series also adds a sports gray grille option, which was previously only available in an RGB illumination model. All three grilles in this series are easily interchangeable and provide a unique touch to enhance the aesthetics of any boating experience. The EL Series is ideal for installations where mounting depth is limited, with a mounting depth requirement of only 1.69” (43 mm), but still manages to unleash impressive sound quality in a 6.5” speaker.
Keep the beat going year after year
Built to withstand the rigors of a harsh marine environment, the rugged EL Series Marine Speakers are constructed to an IP65 rating for water and dust ingress protection, with a salt fog and UV stable design. Tested to international standards for pressure and water ingress, these speakers are manufactured with superior materials and acoustic engineering to ensure they look and sound great on the water.
