About the Infinity INFMBB4030
A stowaway stereo for your boat
A stowaway stereo for your boat
When you don't have a lot of space but need a lot of stereo, Infinity's INFMBB4030 marine digital media receiver is an outstanding solution. This NMEA 2000-ready package consists of a compact color LCD controller that goes in your dash, along with a hideaway "black box" that can be installed out of sight. It's ideal for smaller boats.
Bluetooth in a black box
The hideaway box contains a built-in global AM/FM tuner, plus an AUX input and a charging USB port for your iPod. Built-in Bluetooth lets you enjoy music streaming with just about any phone, and you can also plug in a USB thumb drive and enjoy music files ripped from your CD collection.
Best of all, this receiver can be integrated into your boat's NMEA 2000 system.
A watertight wired controller
With the "black box" installed down below, you control everything from the watertight wired controller installed topside. The color LCD screen and big control buttons make it easy to switch sources or change the tune. It's also engineered to stand up to the extremes of a marine environment, so splashes, spray, and sunlight won't stop the music.
The INFMBB4030 works with the SiriusXM tuner (sold separately), so you can enjoy the wide variety of music, sports, news, and entertainment programming provided by satellite radio when you're up to 100 miles offshore.

Infinity INFMBB4030 reviews
Was very disappointed with this product, installation instructions were lacking, no template of any kind was included nor was a cover. I bought this radio thinking I did not have to cut into my console other then the small middle hole for the wiring. Boy was I wrong, to make this head mount flush I have to cut out a pretty big oval hole which I didn't want to do in the first place ( did I mention no template). After meticulously wiring everything correctly the unit would not turn on! Checked all fuses, connections, etc. Finally connected it directly to a 12V battery source and the radio would still not turn on. Total frustration especially after spending this much for a "quality" stereo. On a positive note Crutchfield was outstanding, their Tech rep walked me through some steps which I had already done and just said we will send you a replacement radio ASAP. It's nice that a company will back you up when the going gets rough!
Pros: None so far
Cons: Radio would not turn on
