A convenient jack that mounts on a panel
Tired of fumbling around behind your instrument panel every time you want to connect a music source to your marine stereo? This panel-mount combo jack from JL Audio lets you create a convenient, permanent connection point for a variety of USB or 3.5mm devices.
With this panel installed in your boat, you can use the USB port to connect and charge your USB-compatible digital music players, thumb drives, and smartphones. The jack also accepts a 3.5mm stereo plug for analog audio signals, providing output via a pair of female RCA jacks. Of course, you'll need the appropriate cables to connect your various devices.
This marine-rated 6-foot cable can be mounted on any flat surface up to 1" thick. You'll need to create a 3/4" hole for the connector, which tightens into place using the plastic wing nut on the opposite side of the mounting surface. A labeled, sealed rubber cover protects the panel from rain and spray. Warranty: 2 years.
