FAQs

How do I set up DSP profiles for my Apollo Series stereo with the Fusion-Link app?

How do I use PartyBus with the Fusion-Link app?

Can I control the volume of all Apollo stereos on a PartyBus network from the controlling stereo?

Unfortunately that feature is not supported by the PartyBus network, you can only control the volume of each stereo individually.

When playing music via Apple AirPlay on my Apollo RA770, my NRX300 remote shows 'unknown source' on the screen. How can I fix this?

Please update the software of your NRX300 remote. Simply turn on the remote and connected stereo and then go to Settings>Update>MS-NRX300 to allow the remote to update. We recommend that before doing this, you also ensure your stereo is running the latest software version.

How do I set up and use Apple AirPlay with my Apollo Series stereo?

How do I use over-the-air software updates with my Apollo Series stereo?

What is the current consumption of my FUSION stereo?

Current consumption of Fusion marine stereos:

Fusion stereos have a standard voltage rating of 10.8V to 16V DC unless otherwise stated.

All figures are for individual head units only, not a system. Numbers can be added together to calculate the system current consumption.

Amplifiers will contribute significantly higher current consumptions.

All marine stereos with 4 amplified speaker outputs have been tested with 4 speakers attached and no USB devices connected.

All measurements are average, so measurements on other production stereos may vary. Values are subject to change without notification.



The Fusion-Link app crashes when I select the volume control icon on the home screen. How can I fix this?

To resolve this issue, delete the Fusion-Link app from your device and then reinstall it.

Why can't I browse my phone's music library from the Fusion-Link app when I am streaming via Bluetooth on my Android device?

Sorry, only Apple devices have the capability to navigate media libraries over Bluetooth.

Why does the Fusion-Link app report "error" when I select "update" from the settings menu?

Over-the-air software updates are only available for the Apollo Series. All other Fusion stereos require a USB stick loaded with an update folder connected to the stereo to perform an update. "Error" will display if there is no USB device connected, the USB device is not formatted correctly, or if the file is not in a folder named "update".

My Fusion-Link wireless application displays "No Stereos Available"

The first thing to check is that you are connected to the correct wireless network for the stereo. Once you have confirmed this, close the app on the device and restart it (consult the manufacturer's website for instructions on restarting). If this fails, check that you have a valid IP address on the stereo and follow the instructions in the tech support item: "My Fusion-link wireless remote Application will not connect to my 700 series stereo."

My Fusion-Link wireless remote application will not connect to my 700 Series stereo.

The first thing to check is that the 700 Series is displaying a valid IP address on the 'about' screen. Select the 'settings' menu, then 'about' to confirm. If the display is "IPNone", the router is either not a compatible DHCP product or is not configured correctly. If the IP address starts with the prefix 169, it is not valid, as this is a default address when the router is not sending a DHCP generated IP address or is configured incorrectly. Please review the router's instruction manual or contact the manufacturer's website for technical help.

Features:

Digital Signal Processing (DSP): A technically superior listening experience made simple, Fusion's DSP produces superior sound quality in every environment. Precisely calculated loudness curves optimized for the human ear ensure quality, full range audio at every volume level, while the feed-forward limiter anticipates a peak in the audio and adjusts the gain to make distortion, a thing of the past. Using environmental information and acoustically designed Fusion speaker profiles, you can now achieve customized, optimized audio for any area of your boat, resulting in an entertainment system that is perfectly tuned for premium audio reproduction, and programmed to protect your system season after season.

Setting up your DSP profiles is made simple with the free Fusion-Link app. With just a few clicks, you can set up the preconfigured DSP profile once and get back to enjoying what you love on the water, while listening to high quality audio customized for your ears and the environment.

PartyBus*: Enjoy the freedom of musical choice with the Apollo Series and Fusion-PartyBus™. The power of PartyBus kicks in when you add more PartyBus enabled stereos to your entertainment system. Each additional PartyBus enabled stereo gives you the option to join Party Mode and play the same perfectly synced audio source through the entire vessel. Opt into Personal Mode and listen to available audio sources from your stereo in the area of your choice without disrupting Party Mode in the other areas of the vessel.

Wi-Fi Audio Streaming With Apple AirPlay 2*: Seamlessly stream high quality audio via Apple AirPlay 2 over Wi-Fi* from your compatible Apple device to the Apollo RA670.
