MasterCraft signs speaker deal with Klipsch Audio


MasterCraft Boat Co. has partnered with Klipsch Audio to bring what it calls “concert-level sound” to its new boats.

Klipsch Audio has created its first-ever marine speakers that are exclusively offered on MasterCraft boats.

“We’re dedicated to providing the best experiences on the water for our customers, and our partnership with Klipsch enables MasterCraft to create an exclusive, first-ever audio experience on the water that will truly blow people away,” MasterCraft president and CEO Terry McNew said in a statement.

“We spend a lot of time focused on customizing boats to our owners’ needs — from the look and style of the boat to the wake behind it. Digitally controlled custom, concert-level sound is an incredibly exciting new on-board entertainment option that we know people of all ages will enjoy.”

MasterCraft said Klipsch speakers, working with Klipsch amplification systems, use less power while adding more volume with minimal distortion, even at peak levels. Beyond its power (as much as 120 dB), the new sound system is tuned for accurate sound across a broad frequency range.

“We are excited to bring the power, detail and emotion of the live music experience that only Klipsch speakers deliver to the world of boating with our strategic partner Mastercraft. Klipsch speakers have stood the test of time, and we are thrilled to bring this unparalleled audio experience to MasterCraft consumers,” Klipsch Group COO Oscar Bernardo said.
