For anyone with a limited amount of dash area, but a desire for high-quality sound, it's hard to beat the JBL PRV-275 from Prospec Electronics. The fully weatherproof Bluetooth-enabled stereo receiver has a 2-3/4" color LCD display and built-in amplifier, yet only takes up 4-1/8" of space—the same size as a standard small gauge. The cutout requires a 3-1/2" hole.
The round JBL PRV-275 offers a wide range of listening possibilities. Aside from AM/FM and weather band, it has a USB port, and aux and video feed inputs. The receiver features versatile Bluetooth® audio streaming with straightforward pairing as well as wired remote capability.
Built for extreme weather, the faceplate and controls of the JBL PRV-275 from Prospec Electronics are thunderstorm-rated and UV-stable for a long, trouble-free service life. The easy-to-use non-slip buttons and rotary encoder are engineered for intuitive use while in motion.
Belying its diminutive size, the JBL PRV-275 produces massive sound. Rated at 4 x 45W peak @ 4 ohms and 2-ohm stable, the stereo receiver delivers clean, accurate reproduction, even at top-end volume when paired with JBL marine speakers. It has three pairs of RCA pre-outs for amplifier and/or subwoofer expandability. Available from Prospec Electronics, it costs $299.95.
