Sportsman Boats has extended an agreement with JL Audio for three years as the company’s exclusive audio partner for model years 2019 through 2021.

Models included in the contract expansion will include Open and Heritage Series of offshore center consoles and Masters and Tournament Series inshore bay boats.

This expanded partnership will now feature two distinct audio packages: the standard package, included as part of Sportsman’s SportLink Electronics Integration System, and an optional Ultra-Premium M6 upgrade package.

Components in the standard system include the recently-released JL Audio MediaMaster 50, a weatherproof marine source unit with an integrated amplifier capable of generating 100 watts of output, and up to eight MX-Series 6.5-inch speakers with white sport grilles.

The optional Ultra-Premium upgrade package is anchored by the MediaMaster 100, along with M-Series amplifiers and will feature new M6 speakers and subwoofers. All JL Audio components will receive a 3-years product warranty.

“The team at JL Audio is thrilled to continue our working relationship with Sportsman Boats and their impressive team of professionals,” said JL Audio national sales manager Ora Freeman in a statement. “We are very proud that our products have been so well-received by their customers. For 2019, we have developed outstanding systems that will produce some of the best sounding audio available on the water.”

Sportsman Boats sales and marketing director Richie Rogers said that audio plays a big part in improving the customer’s experience on the water. “As a leader and innovator, JL Audio delivers superior performance and sound quality that will exceed our customer’s expectations,” he said. “Our exclusive partnership with JL Audio will support our goal of bringing even more value and feature-rich content to our customers.”
