Clarion Debuts Speaker Line

Publish date:

Clarion Marine and parent company JL Audio launched a new line of coaxial speakers and subwoofers. The CMSP speakers will be available in 6.5- and 7.7-inch sizes, and the subwoofers are 10 inches. RGB LED lighting will be standard with the larger speaker and subwoofer, and optional with the smaller speaker.

“This was a clean-sheet, premium speaker line initiative, and we refused to settle for anything less than truly exceptional,” Clarion Marine product line manager John Zimmerman said in a statement.


The speakers are “salt and sun certified,” and Clarion utilized marine-grade polymers for the grilles and chassis. They also exceed shock/vibration resistance and UV industry standards, according to the company.

“This line is also representative of a shift in direction for brand styling, which will be seen in many more products to come,” Zimmerman added.

All specs on the CMSP speakers can be seen here.

JL Audio’s exclusive agreement to license the marine division of the Clarion brand for the United States and key markets is set to expand later this year, with delivery scheduled for 2021.
