It's also ready to plug into your existing NMEA 2000 network.

Built-in Bluetooth® 5.0 and more

How do you like to play music on your boat? The CMM-30 lets you stream music from your smartphone or any other Bluetooth device. You can plug your iPhone into the rear USB port and enjoy all your favorite MP3 or WMA tunes, plus album art. And you can also play tunes from your digital music player using the AUX input.

All set for SiriusXM®

If you're a SiriusXM satellite radio subscriber (or plan to be), the CMM-30 works with select SiriusXM tuners (sold separately, subscription required). You'll enjoy a vast selection of music, news, entertainment and sports programming, as far as 100 miles offshore.

Ready to go, ready to grow

Clarion built this rugged marine receiver to last, but it's also designed to deliver outstanding sound. The 5-band parametric EQ lets you adjust the highs, mids, and lows to suit your preferences, and you can use the built-in frequency filters and subwoofer controls to get the best possible performance from your system. The preamp outputs will allow you to expand your system in the future.

Four distinct audio zones

The CMM-30 gives you four-zone audio control, so you can split the boat into four distinct areas to suit your needs. Each zone can be controlled by a compatible Clarion wired remote (sold separately).

Tune in terrestrial radio

Clarion's outstanding AM/FM tuner hauls in plenty of local radio stations, no matter where "local" happens to be. You'll also be able to get the latest on changing conditions from the NOAA Weather Band, including automatic reception of emergency info.

Fit and functionality

This compact receiver fits into tight spaces, while the oversized face features rubberized, backlit buttons that add visual punch and improve nighttime usability. The color LCD display gives you the information you need with just a glance. The CMM-30 also works with Clarion's CMR-10, CMR-20, and CMR-30 marine remotes. A rubber front-panel cover is included to protect the unit when not in use.

Ready for life on the water

The CMM-30's front panel is IP66-certified to give you best-in-class water intrusion and salt water protection. On the inside, rubber gaskets and integrated drainage channels keep water out. The face is also UV-treated, so it'll stand up to broiling sunlight for seasons to come.

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.

Note: The CMM-30 can be exposed to water-spray, but cannot be submerged in water.

This marine digital media receiver will not play CDs.

    Marine & Mounting Features

    Marine Certified: The Clarion CMM-30 features an IP66-rated weatherproof construction design that protects the digital media receiver from exposure to water-spray and dust. Utilizing UV-treated, durable, marine-rated materials, the Clarion CMM-30 digital media receiver is built to endure the harsh marine environment. It is built to exceed industry standards for salt-fog exposure (ASTM B117), UV exposure (ASTM D4329), and vibration resistance (3.0G) - ensuring excellent long-term durability.

    Note: The CMM-30 can be exposed to water-spray, but cannot be submerged in water.

    Mounting Options: The Clarion CMM-30 requires a rectangular cutout in the bulkhead for inserting the chassis. Four screws (supplied) fasten the unit against the mounting surface, and hold the waterproof gasket against the bulkhead. A cardboard template is supplied to assist you with the cutout and drilling the screw holes.

    • Cutout Dimensions: 3.695" (w) x 3.095" (h) x 4.755" (d)
    • Front-Panel Dimensions: 5.975" (w) x 3.915" (h) x 1.405" (d)
    • Screw Hole Spacing: 5.325" (w) x 1.965" (h) x 1.0625"

    Note: The receiver does not include a mounting sleeve or ISO-mount screw holes to accommodate a standard Single-DIN automotive installation.

    NMEA 2000 Certified: The Clarion CMM-30 is NMEA 2000 Certified, allowing seamlessly integration with your boat's onboard NMEA 2000 network for control and two-way communication of the marine receiver directly from your boat's Multi-Function Display (MFD) device. Two-way communication between the marine receiver and your MFD allows source selection, song/track/album title, radio frequency and more to display on the MFD interface (including Garmin, Lowrance, and Simrad).

    Note: Requires compatible NMEA 2000 entertainment protocols (PGN), and may also require a software upgrade of connected MFD device(s).

    Rubber Front-Panel Cover: A rubber front-panel cover is included to further protect the Clarion CMM-30 marine source unit when not in use.

    Variety Of Sources

    Bluetooth Audio Streaming: The Clarion CMM-30 offers built-in Bluetooth 5.0 with support for wireless audio streaming (A2DP) and control (AVRCP). You'll be able to stream stored music, music apps, and other audio content from your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone or tablet to the digital media receiver. You can also control playback functions such as Play/Pause and Previous/Next Track from the marine receiver. In addition, the unit will display song/artist/album information (no album art). You can pair multiple devices with the CMM-30, but only one source device can be connected for playback at a time. The receiver has a Bluetooth wireless range of 35'.

    Note: The Clarion CMM-30 does not support Bluetooth hands-free communication for making and answering phone calls.

    USB-A Port: The rear-panel USB-A 2.0 port allows for connection of an external USB MSC (mass storage class device), such as a USB thumbdrive. You'll be able to playback MP3/WMA (up to 320kbps) and FLAC/WAV (up to 48kHz) music files stored on a compatible USB thumbdrive (up to 64GB). It can recognize a total of 255 folders and a total of 9,999 files (3,000 files per folder). The unit offers playback functions such as Folder/Track List, Play/Pause, Previous/Next Track, Fast Forward/Rewind, and Random/Repeat. The receiver will also display song/artist/album information (including album art).

    • The USB port is attached to the rear chassis by a 9" cord, so you'll need a USB extension cable (sold separately).
    • The USB-A port does not support playback from Apple iOS or Android OS devices. The USB port also does not support USB hubs or card-readers.

    iPhone Direct Connection: The Clarion CMM-30's USB-A port can also be used to connect your Apple iPhone with Lightning connector (iPhone SE/8 and newer), using the Lightning-to-USB cable that came with your iPhone or an Apple Certified Lightning-to-USB cable (sold separately).

From the unit's front-panel you'll be able to browse categories (Playlist/Artist/Song/Album/Genre/Composer), control playback (Play/Pause/Repeat/Shuffle), and view song/artist/album information (including album art). The USB-A port (5V/2.A) will also charge your Apple iPhone while connected.

    • Compatible iPhones include the iPhone SE (2nd Generation), 8/8+, X/XR, XS/XSMax, 11/11Pro/11ProMax, 12/12Mini/12Pro/12ProMax, 13/13Mini/13Pro/13ProMax, and 14/14Plus/14Pro/14ProMax
    • Not compatible with older iPhones not listed above.
    • Not compatible with iPod devices such as the touch, nano, classic, or other older iPod models.
    • Not compatible with any older 30-pin iPod/iPhone models.

    Note: Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset the head unit and your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't work, you may need to wait until a newer software update is available.

    Aux Input: The marine receiver's rear-panel Aux input consists of a set of stereo RCA jacks that allow you to connect an external audio source for playback. You can adjust the receiver's Aux input sensitivity (-5 to +5) to match the output level of your connected device. The Aux input is attached to the rear-chassis by a 8" cord.

    Audio Section

    Multi-Zone Audio: The Clarion CMM-30 supports multi-zone audio through its built-in amplifier and 8ch preouts. The built-in 25W x 4ch amplifier is capable of powering a pair of speakers in two separate zones, while the 8ch/3.5V preamp outputs allow up to four zones of audio with selectable Zone 4 or subwoofer functionality. Each zone will playback the same audio source (you cannot playback different audio sources in different zones). You will have independent volume and tone control of each zone (1-2-3-4). You can even rename each zone.

    • Zone 1 consists can be powered via the built-in amplifier or from an external marine amplifier.
    • Zone 2 can be powered via the built-in amplifier or from an external marine amplifier.
    • Zone 3 can only be powered from an external marine amplifier.
    • Zone 4 can be powered from an external marine amplifier, or used as sub preouts for Zone 1.

    Volume Level Control: You can select how each zone (1-2-3-4) will handle volume level control. You can choose from Variable (a zone has its own level setting), Absolute (a zone will share the same volume as the main volume setting), Sub (subwoofer level control for Zone 4 only), or Off (zone is muted).

    Equalizer: The Clarion CMM-30 offers simple Bass, Mid, and Treble control (-10 to +1) to tailor the sound to your preference. You can also further fine-tune the sound by adjusting the head unit's 5-Band EQ (-10 to +10 per band).

    Note: The EQ and Tone settings are applied globally to all zones.

    High Pass Crossover: You can apply a high pass crossover to each zone independently. You can select from 120Hz, 100Hz, 80Hz, or Off.

    Volume Limiter: You can choose the maximum volume level (0-50) for each zone independently.

    Display & Control

    3" Color Display with Backlit Buttons: The CMM-30 digital media receiver features a 3" full-color display with large text and dimmer control. The 3" full-color display supports song/artist/album information (including album art). The unit's front-panel also contains a 3-way rotary knob to operate volume, as well as navigate and select menu settings. Along the bottom edge of the front-panel are 7 backlit push-button controls to operate power, menu settings, favorites (presets), play/pause, previous/next track, and fast forward/rewind.

    Optional Wired Remotes: The CMM-30 features a proprietary Remote Input and offers compatibility with select Clarion marine wired remote controls (all sold separately). The Clarion wired remotes are IP67-rated which protects them against water submersion (up to 3.3' for 30 minutes) and dust ingress. The CMM-30 features an attached 9" proprietary remote cable, while the compatible Clarion marine wired remotes feature an attached 8" proprietary cable. In most applications, you'll need to extend the reach between the CMM-30 and compatible Clarion marine wired remote. A 6' and 25' remote extension cable is available (sold separately). You can add up to two wired remotes using Clarion's CMC-RC-Y splitter (sold separately) or a maximum of three wired remotes using two of Clarion's CMC-RC-Y splitter (sold separately). The maximum total distance of all connected wired remotes should not exceed 75'.

    • CM-R30: The CM-R30 is a full-function, wired remote control with an integrated high-contrast LCD segment display and back-lit rubberized buttons. This remote control perfectly complements the design of the CMM-30 receiver.
    • CMR-20: The CMR-20 is also a full-function, wired remote control with integrated high-contrast LCD segment display and back-lit rubberized buttons.
    • CMR-10: The CMR-10 is compact wired remote control that offers basic control functions and back-lit rubberized buttons (no display).

    Note: All of the wired remote controls, Y-splitter, and extension cables are sold separately. The Clarion CMM-30 does not offer wireless remote control.

    Zone Renaming: You can rename each zone (1-2-3-4). Choose from Bow, Bridge, Cabin, Cockpit, Galley, Helm, Stateroom 1, Stateroom 2, Tower, and/or Transom. The zone name will be displayed on the 3" full-color LCD screen.

    Customer Q&A

    1 question already asked

    If I spec a Clarion CMM-30 Receiver, do I also need a CMM- 30BB?
    george  Jan 14, 2023
    1 answer
    That is a really great question, George. This unit does look like Clarion's marine remotes that are designed to pair with Clarion's hideaway radios, but you will not need any additional gear with this CMM-30BB. This unit is an all-in-one with no other remotes needed, though they are optional. You can add the CMR-30 remote in the link below if you need an alternative control area on your vessel, but not required! I hope this helps!
