Introducing the FUSION STEREOACTIVE™ portable marine stereo system. Designed and engineered in New Zealand by FUSION, the STEREOACTIVE is engineered for the ruggedness of life on the water and tuned to deliver crystal clear music that enhances any activity.

This isn’t just a standard Bluetooth speaker, this is an IPx7 rated, water resistant portable stereo that FLOATS! Featuring a unique FUSION PUCK mounting system that enables you to securely mount the stereo to any paddle board, kayak, canoe, dinghy or even pool, jacuzzi or spa.

Take to the water this season with your full catalogue of music and streaming services, including:

  • Bluetooth audio streaming, enabling you to stream any popular music service from a compatible A2DP Bluetooth enabled device
  • With the AM/FM radio tuner you can tune in your favorite hits, with two dedicated preset keys available for your favorite stations
  • Stay on top of the weather with Weatherband radio - Available in North America only
  • Enjoy playback of MP3 media from a low profile USB flash drive whilst out on the water. A waterproof cavity is designed to provide secure housing of the USB inside the STEREOACTIVE

The quality of the music is just as important as the durability of the design. The dual 2.5” 40 Watt custom-designed directional speaker system and passive bass radiator is perfectly tuned to the internal air volume for powerful audio delivery. This, matched with the Class-D amplifier and digital signal processing, delivers audiophile-quality music reproduction.

Take control of your entertainment with FUSION’s intuitive app solutions, available for smartphone and smartwatch owners. Apple or Android device and Garmin smartwatch users can enjoy wireless control with the free FUSION-Link and FUSION-Link Lite Bluetooth apps, available for download from the Apple App store, the Google Play store or Garmin Connect IQ.


World's First Portable Marine Stereo

A passion for the water, a craving for adventure and a love of music, paddles FUSION into this new direction. Introducing the FUSION STEREOACTIVE portable marine stereo system. Designed and engineered at FUSION headquarters in New Zealand, the STEREOACTIVE is designed for the challenge of life on the water and engineered to deliver crystal clear audio that enhances any activity. Whether in the spa, pool, out on your boat, paddle board or kayak, or simply relaxing at home, the STEREOACTIVE is a must-have for any leisure activity.

The Music Possibilities Are Endless

Enjoy audio from any popular music streaming service or your favorite playlist from a compatible A2DP Bluetooth-enabled Apple or Android device. Keep up to date with current events or tune into your favorite hits with the built-in AM/FM radio tuner or keep an ear on what the weather is doing with Weatherband (available in North America only). Enjoy playback of MP3 media from a low profile USB flash drive - a waterproof cavity is designed to provide secure housing of the USB inside the STEREOACTIVE whilst out on the water.

World Class Audio Engineering Meets Industrial Design

Directional Sound

The 2 x 20 Watt 2.5” custom designed directional speakers are protected in a ruggedized case that is perfectly tuned for powerful audio delivery in the outdoor environment. Each active driver has a dual neodymium magnet system structure that delivers the full range of sound at extended volume levels. The long excursion speaker design delivers quality audio for greater cut through in the outdoor environment.

The precisely calculated internal air volume is designed to complement the driver and passive bass radiator system and engineered to deliver unprecedented audio reproduction.

USB MP3 Music Playback & Emergency Charge

A water resistant cavity is designed to provide secure housing of a low profile USB flash drive (MP3 playback) inside the STEREOACTIVE, allowing you to enjoy your favorite MP3 tracks while keeping the flash drive safe.

If your smartphone is running low on power the USB port provides an emergency charge system (dependent on STEREOACTIVE battery state). Connect your Apple IAP2 Lightning connector products and AOA Android phones to the USB port to enjoy audio playback directly from your smartphone while you get a charge.

Premium Lithium Ion Batteries

By enlisting a 1st tier battery supplier, you can be confident that the dual high powered lithium ion cells built into the STEREOACTIVE are reliable and have a long life expectancy - and will keep the music playing for up to 20 hours*. The 12 VDC input (rather than the standard 5V USB) charging means that STEREOACTIVE can fully recharge back to 100% battery capacity within 3 hours. This means less time waiting for a charge and more time grooving out on the water.

Going on a road trip? Don’t worry, the STEREOACTIVE has an optional car charging accessory so you can take your entertainment with you.

Fully Sealed IPx7 Water-Resistant And Floats

Engineered to the IPx7 water resistant standard, the STEREOACTIVE will survive submersion in up to 1 meter of water for 30 minutes and come back singing. But we've gone one step further - the STEREOACTIVE floats! So in the unlikely event that your STEREOACTIVE becomes detached from the Puck mount, you can rest assured your investment won’t sink to the depths below.

With internal volume optimized to ensure buoyancy, the STEREOACTIVE will float even when attached to an ACTIVESAFE containing with your valuables.

Class-D Amplifier

The highly efficient Class-D amplifier delivers a powerful 2 x 20 Watts to the speakers. The Class-D technology delivers more power and a longer battery life - so you can enjoy quality music reproduction on the water for longer.

We did not stop there, the Class-D amplifier is over-engineered so there is no audible “compression” effects even at high volumes. This matched with the unique equalization via digital signal processing at each volume step, ensures warm sound and rich bass at low levels and no distortion at high levels.This results in consistent audio quality at all volume levels.

The FUSION PUCK - An Innovative Mounting Solution

The Puck is a FUSION-designed mounting solution that allows you to securely attach a STEREOACTIVE and/or ACTIVESAFE to the surface of a paddle board, kayak, canoe, dinghy/tinny/jon boat and even a jacuzzi - leaving you to enjoy your music rather than worrying about your stereo floating away. FUSION has partnered with both Ram-Mount and RailBlaza to create specialized Puck solutions that are compatible with these industry-leading mount providers' product ranges.

PUCK Mounting Solutions For Every Activity

Secure your STEREOACTIVE and/or ACTIVESAFE to any surface with the innovative FUSION PUCK mounting solution.
