Aquatic AV AQ-BC-6BT-G
Bluecube hideaway spa stereo
Our take on the Aquatic AV AQ-BC-6BT-G by Crutchfield's Dave Delamere
Add some music while you relax
Pack a lot of power and versatility into an out-of-sight small package with Aquatic AV's AQ-BC-6BT-G Bluecube spa stereo. Designed to be stealthy and waterproof, this stereo still puts out lots of power for your speakers, even 2-ohm models. Built-in Bluetooth lets you play your favorite music directly from smartphones and other mobile devices. Whether you're hanging out by the pool or chillin' in the hot tub, that's a huge benefit.
Two ways to control the show
This stereo's built-in Bluetooth enables you to pair two phones, so you can stream your favorite music. You'll also get basic track and volume controls, so your phone doubles as a remote. Now if you want to keep your phone dry and would dig more options, you can add the Aquatic AV AQ-RF-6UBT 2-way wireless remote control. This waterproof remote lets you choose your source, access different tracks, try out some EQ settings and tone controls to shape up your music, and use the stereo's 12-volt triggers to turn on accessories such as lighting.
Added good stuff
The AQ-BC-6BT-G has plenty of power for four speakers, but can push up to eight if you really want to treat yourself. The set of RCA outputs lets you add an amp or powered subwoofer for more oomph to round out your sound.
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.
