Overview

Our take on the Infinity INF-PRV250

Infinity's INF-PRV250 marine digital media receiver gives you plenty of ways to enjoy music on your boat, plus the inputs you'll need to expand your system later.

A digital media receiver built for the outdoors

Infinity's INF-PRV250 marine digital media receiver gives you plenty of ways to enjoy music on your boat, plus the inputs you'll need to expand your system later.

This digital media receiver packs a lot of features into a compact, rectangular design that fits neatly in almost any boat, Jeep, or ATV. You'll get your favorite AM/FM radio stations, of course, plus you can use the aux or USB inputs to enjoy tunes stored on a music player or USB thumb drive. Built-in Bluetooth lets you stream music from your smartphone.

The INF-PRV250 includes a set of rear-mounted preamp outputs, so you can expand your system with a marine amp in the future. The LED display tells you what you're listening to with just a glance, while the weather-resistant, UV-stable face and controls will stand up to sun, salt and moisture.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

these are junk

bob from Bradenton, FL on 5/3/2015

These are overpriced junk. I have had two brand new ones, they break in a year or less. Worst piece of equipment on my sea hunt gamefisher.

Pros: None

Cons: Clunky, poor quality

Great stereo

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great product. Watertight so you can wash it down with water & I like the volume buttons better than the turn knob ones when I'm on the ocean. Easy to use Very user friendly

Pros: Well made

Cons: None

Best Stereo for your boat

Joe from Bartlett IL on 9/12/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

What a great system for my Yamaha Jet boat, its loud and clear in such a small package. This was unheard of before this unit came out. I also purchased a pair of Kicker marine speakers from Crutchfield to go with the sytem, they are equally impressive. To be fair it hasn't been out on the water yet, hopefully its waterproof as advertised

Pros: GREAT SOUND IN A SMALL PACKAGE

Cons: None

Perfect

Dave from Kansas City on 6/30/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This thing is perfect. The 50 Watts per channel is more than enough for the Infinity 612M mounted under the seat. High db and clear. I get many compliments and I love not needing a separate amp. A perfect compliment to this system would be a powered sub. I have been buying car and marine audio since 1990, I would buy this again.

Pros: Power Ease of install Size

Cons: Wish it had satellite radio built in.

The Infinity only offers a single pair of RCA pre-amp outputs which should already be occupied by your JL Audio amp. You could use RCA Y Adapters to split the single output of the Infinity into two pairs (one for the JL Amp, the other for the powered sub): http://www.crutchfield.com/p_120RCAY2/T-Spec-RCA-Y2-Y-Adapter.html You would need two of the adapters; one for the left channel the other for the right channel.

A long press of the SEL button initially followed by a short press will get you to the menu option to set the initial volume. [ Jeff  Mar 04, 2016 ]  Staff
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: The Infinity PRV250 does offer full range signal through the speaker leads.

It has a standard antenna input just like a car radio. I love the unit! [ CHARLES D  Mar 30, 2015 ]
The unit requires an external antennae. Standard AM/FM connections will work. [ Hamilton  Mar 30, 2015 ]
You need a external antenna. [ Jose  Mar 30, 2015 ]
No It's not to my knowledge. Maybe if you have an app on phone can use Bluetooth [ DANUEL  Nov 09, 2014 ]
Make sure that unit is set to BT. Press the "3" button until "pairing" appears on the display. Find the infinity unit on your mobile device and the code is 1234. [ DE LA LLATA  Jun 30, 2014 ]
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: You have a couple of options for hooking up a four channel amp to that marine head unit. 1. If the amplifier has speaker level inputs, you can run speaker wire, which will give you the ability to fade front to rear. 2. Buy a Line Output Converter, such as the Scosche LOC80, which will allow you to convert the front speaker outputs to RCA level. You will be able to fade front to rear with this setup. 3. If you don't care to be able to fade from one set of speakers to the other, you can use splitters, like the AudioQuest FLX-X RCA Y-Adapter, and then run two lines to the amp. This will result in a lower level signal, since it will be split in two. 4. Depending on the amplifier, you may be able to run one set of RCAs for all four channels, we would need to know the model. This would also keep you from fading the speakers front to rear. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.

yes [ CHRIS  May 12, 2014 ]
Yes [ DANUEL  May 12, 2014 ]
Shawn, My son-in-law uses his IPHONE to play Pandora thru Bluetooth with this radio when we're on my boat fishing. I think he gets tired of my music that I have on a jump drive loaded into the radio usb input. It's a great system. RC [ RICHARD G  May 11, 2014 ]
I am not sure. I have only played music from iTunes through Bluetooth. [ STEVEN  May 11, 2014 ]
Yes it will! [ MARIA  May 10, 2014 ]
I have never submerged mine so could not answer that question. I have mine on console so takes weather such as rain and occasional snow. Seems to do fine on wash downs I do spray it with water hose to get salt off but have never used pressure washer on it believe it says somewhere in warnings to never use high pressured water on it. So it has been awesome head unit definitely recommend. The display does fog up a little from time to time but hasn't affected performance any. [ DANUEL  Feb 17, 2014 ]
It does not appear that we currently carry the optional remote. These would likely need to be purchased directly from Infinity. I found this information in the manual: A. RF remote option. - In order to take advantage of the remote option, a transmitter and receiver must be purchased (together part#, MILRF9 UART). Once plugged in the RF remote dongle, the RF remote will allow for wireless remote control possibility. B. Wired remote. Proprietary wired remotes may also be used with this Infinity unit. Part # JBLMC20 may be purchased. Part# JBLMC20 may be purchased as well as part# JBLREM50. [ Jeff  Dec 23, 2013 ]  Staff
