JBL has been bringing music to life with their sound systems for more than 70 years – from delivering powerful sounds to more than half a million people at Woodstock to receiving Scientific and Technical awards from the Motion Picture Academy in recent years. If you’ve ever been to a Yankee game, you’ve heard JBL speakers. Obama and Trump’s inaugurals were heard through JBL speakers, and 70% of theaters use JBL sound!
If in the market for a new sound system for your boat, JBL Marine sound systems are built to withstand the harsh elements out at sea, with enough power to fully deliver the JBL sound experience the brand is known for.

Top JBL Marine Sound System Components – Stereos, Speakers and Amplifiers
JBL PRV-175 Marine Digital Stereo with Built-In Bluetooth

While the JBL PRV-175 features a built-in amp (20 watts x 4 RMS/45 peak x 4 channels), it includes a set of rear-mounted preamp outputs so you can expand your system with a more powerful marine amp in the future should you wish.

JBL PRV-275 Marine Digital Stereo with Built-In Bluetooth
The JBL PRV-275 Marine Stereo is similar to the PRV-175, but has some advantages over the 175. The PRV-275 has 6 preamp outputs for adding amps for speakers in different locations to allow fading between them, and another set for adding subwoofers so that the bass can be controlled from the radio. Because of the extra audio control the 275 has, it also was given a 3 band EQ. The 175 has no EQ. The JBL PRV-275 has a more advanced color display, allowing for better graphics / visuals.
