(PHOENIX, AZ, USA)— MTX, the leader in high performance car, home, and marine audio, announces a new black wakeboard tower speaker to complement the white version in its Thunder Marine category. Thunder Marine speakers, amplifiers, and subwoofers have been very well received by the aftermarket audio industry, boat manufacturers, and boating enthusiasts. This new gloss black version of the wakeboard tower speakers further exhibits MTX’s commitment to this audio category. Thunder Marine products are not the usual inferior car audio product that is sold as marine. They are not the typical impersonation of car audio products without the performance. Thunder Marine speakers, amps, and subwoofers are engineered specifically for the marine environment and are built to be the most reliable and best performing audio products in the marine industry.

“Boat owners are passionate about performance and fun. The only thing better than cruising down the lake at 60 miles per hour is cruising at 60 miles per hour while listening to your favorite music on a great sounding stereo system,” said John Ivey, Director of Mobile Audio at MTX. “We recognized that boat owners don’t want the lower quality generic marine audio equipment that came with the boat or that other audio companies are putting on the market. They want a product that is worthy of being in a competition caliber car audio system but will stand up to the harsh environments experienced in their boat. Our Thunder Marine line is definitely worthy and very capable of improving your boating experience. This isn’t just a car audio product painted a different color, but it definitely performs like it!”
