Win a Cool Kyosho RC Surfer 
Signed by Austin Keen 
 


Building off our totally popular GoPro Giveaway, we unveiled our latest contest just a day after announcing our GoPro winners! Our friends at Kyosho America, who you might remember from our Clarion Builds Acura NSX Track Day in Willow Springs, were very excited to join forces with Clarion Marine and Austin Keen to promote one of their "marine" endeavors.
 
The latest Clarion Marine contest will giveaway Kyosho's latest RC Surfer 3, made exclusively with Lost Surfboards, to one lucky fan. This awesome surfer can crush waves just like you've seen Austin do in our videos and his  Instagram  page. Better yet, this amazing prize is autographed by Austin himself! Three runner ups will each receive Kyosho's QuattroX Mini Quad, the world's smallest quadcopter. The winner will be announced on August 11th!

BOLD & BEAUTIFUL!
A Sneak Peek at the New CM Series Speakers


The CM Series, Clarion's flagship line of Marine speakers, is getting some incredible updates.
 
Great products need to look great. But, beauty is not just skin deep with the new CM Series! We always listen to what our customers tell us so we know how important it is to design and build products that are easy to install and uninstall. Distinct to this new line of speakers in the CM Series, we are introducing waterproof connectors that are built into the basket for extremely quick installation. These waterproof female connectors allow for quick and easy connection of both speaker and lighting wires. They also eliminate the worry about the impact of elements on the connections after months and years of use.
 
It's hard to ignore our beautifully redesigned speaker grills. With silver and black options, all of our new speakers in the CM series feature a carbon fiber style bridge inspired by the shape of a propeller! To us, it's important that our product lives and breathes the marine lifestyle, and we are ecstatic with how great this new design delivers in that category! Stay tuned for the official launch of the product line at IBEX 2017 in Tampa, FL.
Clarion Marine Facebook Page 
Hits Impressive  New Milestone!



While our Facebook page likes have steadily increased since the beginning of Spring when we launched the exclusive Clarion Marine Facebook page, this week we reached a huge milestone! We hit the 25,000 mark just today so we want to carve out some room in this issue of the Mariner to thank you and all our fans out there!
 
Not long ago, we spun off the Clarion Marine Facebook page from our main and very popular Clarion USA page. Building the fan base for the new Marine page began from scratch, and we gradually developed our audience with great, marine-themed content over the last few months. In July, things seriously took off with the launch of our Austin Keen sponsorship. Your likes, comments, and shares drew enough attention to our page to boost us beyond the 25,000 fan mark in record time! Be sure to keep checking our Clarion Marine Facebook page for our exciting future events and fresh content featuring Austin Keen and our amazing marine audio products.
 
We've got exciting new content on Facebook this month as we are gearing up to attended America's largest technical trade event for marine industry professionals, aka IBEX 2017, from September 19 to the 21, in Tampa, FL. There we'll feature a custom 20' x 20' exhibit indoors, in addition to our exclusive dock space right at the front of the exhibit hall. If you're in the area, come check us out at booth #3101. If not, check our page at facebook.com/clarionmarine for regular IBEX updates.
