Also in the case of waketowers, Boss Marine presents new and original solutions. The new BM40AMPBT and BM650AMPBT models are equipped with their own amplifier and Bluetooth connection. Virtually every pair of waketowers in this series can be considered a complete stereo system that does not require any additional components.
Just connect your mobile phone via Bluetooth, maybe using apps like Spotify, Pandora etc. The waketower will take care of amplifying the audio signal and emitting excellent music with its own acoustic system. If you prefer a cable connection, these waketowers still offer an AUX socket for connecting even older devices.
We think it's a really interesting idea, especially for sports boats, to be able to postpone the purchase of the classic marine stereo, choosing instead a pair of these waketowers that will take care not only of the diffusion, but also of the amplification and the connection with the smartphone. Without forgetting that these waketowers, thanks to their excellent acoustic insulation, spread a powerful music, wide and of excellent quality.
They are sold in pairs, the first element "master" operates as an amplifier, the other has "slave" functionality, or behaves like a simple speaker that reproduces the amplified sound sent by the master.
The Bluetooth connection is made by a special controller that connects to the Mini-DIN socket of the waketower master. The controller not only turns the unit on and off, but also allows you to advance tracks, adjust the volume, connect to AUX and pair with your smartphone.
To keep the power consumption low, they use a class "D" amplifier, do not absorb anything in the stand-by position and disconnect from the battery if it is not well charged. The construction is protected for the marine environment according to the IPx5 standard.
The 2 models differ in size and power. The BM40AMPBT is contained in a diameter of 102mm and offers 500W (peak), while the BM650AMPBT with a diameter of 165mm releases as much as 750W (peak).
They are already available in our warehouses and can be purchased from the best nautical retailers.
