Marine audio manufacturer Aquatic AV appointed AE Distributing to carry and distribute its product range in California.

Based in Van Nuys, Calif., AE Distributing serves more than 250 dealers of mobile electronics products.

“We are pleased to be distributing the Aquatic AV line,” AE general manager John Haynes said in a statement. “Other audio products sold to boaters are basically automotive-grade products adapted for marine use and typically do not meet water intrusion standards. Aquatic AV products are designed and manufactured to withstand the harsh conditions of the marine environment, using stainless steel and other specially coated metals and gaskets, silicone and other materials to fill in air gaps to prevent water from damaging or destroying audio components.”
