Built-in Bluetooth®... and more

Clarion's marine-rated CMD9 CD receiver has everything you need to keep your entire crew entertained. With features like built-in Bluetooth and easy iPod®/iPhone® compatibility, it's the receiver to have when you want to get away from it all – without getting away from all your entertainment options.

This rugged Clarion offers all the features you'd expect in a high-end receiver. Built-in Bluetooth means you can stream music or take important calls using your Android smartphone. Plug your iPhone into the USB jack and enjoy direct control over calls or your Pandora playlists.

3" color display

And, with a simple press of a button, the front panel flips down to reveal the CD slot. You can play your favorite commercial CDs, or enjoy MP3 and WMA files. The panel also houses a beautiful 3" color LCD display that gives you clear, readable information about what's playing or who's calling.

Clarion CMD9 marine CD receiver

The 3" color display gives this Clarion marine receiver a distinctive (and very cool) look.

Made to perform, ready to grow

The CMD9 features a built-in MOSFET amplifier, a 3-band parametric equalizer, and high- and low-pass filters, so you'll get great performance from your system, no matter what source you're listening to. When it's time to expand your system, you'll find the dual rear USB ports convenient for connecting devices, while the three sets of preamp outputs ease the job of adding marine amps and subs.


If you're a SiriusXM satellite radio subscriber (or plan to be), the CMD9 is fully compatible with the SXV200 tuner (sold separately). You'll enjoy a vast selection of music, news, entertainment and sports programming, and satellite radio reception extends up to 100 miles offshore. You can even tag your favorite songs and purchase them on iTunes® later.

Marine-rated durability

Clarion invests thousands of hours into making their marine receivers tough enough to withstand salt water, heavy fog, blistering sunlight, and lashing rain. All that hard work leads to features like a stainless steel chassis and an integrated drip shield that protects the coated, sealed circuit board. The front panel, when closed, is a watertight barrier that keeps moisture away from the internal circuitry.  From the inside out, this quality receiver is engineered to stand up to the extremes of a marine environment.

Note: Bluetooth compatibility with this receiver may vary, depending on your phone and service provider.
