Stamford, CT – HARMAN International, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., focused on connected technologies and solutions for marine, automotive, consumer, professional and enterprise markets, announced its JBL CLUB Marine Speakers were selected as an Innovation Award Honoree in the In-Vehicle Entertainment category. CES will be held January 9 through 12, 2024, in Las Vegas, Nevada. The speakers will also be displayed at the Harman Explore event, January 8 through 11 at the Virgin Resort.
“We’re thrilled by this recognition from CES of the power and versatility of our CLUB Marine Speakers,” said Kent Jopling, Senior Global Sales Manager, Special Markets. “We’re very proud of the innovation we have achieved in the audio sector of the marine industry, and our team will keep working to provide the highest quality sound on the water for consumers and boatbuilders alike.”
Owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)®, CES features every aspect of the tech sector. The CES Innovation Awards program is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in consumer technology products. The program recognizes honorees in a multitude of consumer technology product categories and distinguishes the highest rated in each. A panel of industry expert judges reviewed applications in each product category based on specific criteria.
Built to OEM special markets standards and priced for the aftermarket, the CLUB Marine Speakers make JBL’s professional sound accessible for more vessels, with a compact design and outstanding performance along with an efficient and modest power structure. The speakers are offered in four different sizes: 6.5- and 8-inch full-range speakers and 10- and 12-inch subwoofers. The one-piece polymer basket is designed to stand the test of time, even after long exposure to sun and salt. Rubber surrounds and polypropylene cones offer superior protection and are much more reliable than foam or treated paper. The IPX5 rating and JBL’s extensive UV testing ensures the CLUB Marine Speakers and Subwoofers can handle the harshest conditions and look brand new for years to come. All feature JBL’s 75 plus years of sound heritage and cutting-edge design at affordable prices for any boat.
