Our take on the Infinity INF-PRV250

by Jon Paulette
Infinity

A digital media receiver built for boaters

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. 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 when you're riding the waves.

Highlights:

  • marine digital media receiver
  • built-in Bluetooth®
  • power: 4 x 50 watts peak
  • rear aux input
  • rear USB input
  • 2-channel rear preamp outputs
  • marine-rated watertight face
  • dimensions: 6"L x 4"W x 2-1/2"D
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Best Stereo for your boat

Written By Joe, Bartlett IL on Thursday, September 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

Written By Dave, Kansas City on Sunday, June 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.

2 questions already asked

how waterproof is this unit? Id like to put it in my RZR 1000 in the dash area but sometimes the water gets that deep so it has a possibility of get wet or even submerged in water. [ Rick  Feb 17, 2014 ]
1 answer
  • 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 ]
I AM SERIOUSLY THINKING ABOUT BUYING THIS UNIT FOR MY POLARIS RANGER 4X4 ? I SEE THAT A WIRELESS REMOTE IS AN OPTION BUT CANNOT FIND ANYWHERE ON U WEB PAGE ON HOW TO BUY THE REMOTE? AND THE PRICE OF THE REMOTE ? .......OR DOES IT COME WITH ONE !!!! [ James Cigainero  Dec 23, 2013 ]
1 answer
  • 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 Staff  Dec 23, 2013 ]
