Skimboarding champion and Clarion brand ambassador,  Austin Keen , now has a dedicated page on our Marine website! In addition to featuring a short bio and a few memorable quotes from Austin, you can also access the latest photos and videos featuring the legend.

By the way, have you wondered why Austin is the perfect fit to champion Clarion as a brand? Here is why, straight from the source:
 
" Spending so much of my time on boats, I have grown to notice and appreciate great music and quality audio. Having been an audiophile for a long time, I have been hooked on the quality and performance of Clarion marine audio systems. Out there during my wakesurfing sessions, or when I'm spending time on the water with friends, I know the experience is made even better with great music cranking out of Clarion marine radios and speakers. Clarion has been in the marine space for a very long time, and their commitment to developing the best marine audio systems, components and accessories makes them a stand out brand in the market. "

A Sneak Peek at New Clarion Marine 
Source Units Unveiling at IBEX 2017


The new 1.8 DIN M608      

For over two decades, Clarion marine source units have come in different sizes and shapes to fit your boat's needs and styling requirements. This September at the IBEX show in Tampa, Florida, Clarion will be unveiling three exciting new models, the M508, M608, and CMS20 Marine Source Units. 
Sporting a 1 DIN and 1.8 DIN form factor respectively, the new M508 and M608 models are replacements for the M505 and M606 Marine Source Units. The M508 and M608 Marine Source Units feature high-end new designs and multiple enhancements to improve the user experience of the already great M505 and M606 units. The new CMS20 is a marine-specific black box source unit and is the successor to the best-selling CMS2.
The new 1-DIN M508     
All three models feature sleek, brushed black finishes, designed as such to mesh perfectly with modern boat dashes, providing an eloquent and seamless integration.When paired with Clarion's MW6 NMEA 2000 module, all three new models support the NMEA 2000 network, allowing for controlling audio using a boat's MFD (Multi-Function Display).
Unlike most competitor products, all Clarion source units are purpose-built for marine applications and rigorously tested against ASTM B117 Salt Fog exposure and ASTM D4329 UV exposure.
