Aquatic AV AQ-DM-6UBT-G
Spa locker and digital media receiver with wireless remote
Our take on the Aquatic AV AQ-DM-6UBT-G by Crutchfield's Dave Delamere
Create the ultimate spa experience
It's clear to me that Aquatic AV thought a lot about how their AQ-DM-6UBT-G digital media locker would be used. They called it a locker because you can actually mount your smartphone or portable music player inside a sealable waterproof housing — great for saunas, spas, hot tubs, and pools. Once you close the locker door, the easy-to-use front panel controls let you pick music from your connected device, streaming sources using Bluetooth®, or FM radio stations in your area. And this stereo system uses its beefy 4-channel amplifier to dish out power to up to eight speakers as you soak your troubles away.
Ready for any environment
The AQ-DM-6UBT-G sports an IP65 waterproof rating, which means that it can easily take on the areas around your pool or spa. In addition to the locker's front panel controls, you can also run the show using the backlit 2-way remote control. This remote boasts a 40-foot range and an LCD display, so you can move around as you pick your tunes. Don't worry about dropping it in the water, since this IP66-rated remote even floats. When its battery runs low, simply recharge it using its own dock inside the locker where it also stays protected.
Your entertainment options
Use this system's built-in Bluetooth to stream music from your smartphone or other Bluetooth-enabled device. Aquatic AV uses Halo Aerial Technology to increase the range of the Bluetooth in all directions. If you want to enjoy your own music collection, you can also plug a music player into the aux input or pop a thumb drive into the USB port. They're also both protected inside the locker, so you don't have to worry about any damage while you splash around. You can also tune into local radio using the FM tuner. And if you're planning to add an amp for more musical goodness, you'll appreciate the rear-mounted 4-channel preamp outputs.
