Ready to rock?
The SoundExtreme SE18 packs a lot of cool features into a rugged, compact, and lightweight sound bar that's ready for your weekend adventures on land or sea. This outdoor-ready sound bar sports five marine-grade speakers (two midrange speakers, two side-mounted woofers, and a 1" tweeter) powered by a Class D amplifier. There's an FM tuner, a built-in microphone for phone calls, plus easy-to-operate (even with gloves) controls on the bar itself. The package also includes a wireless remote that will control both the audio and the lighting.
Lots of lights
Speaking of lighting, the SoundExtreme SE18 features multi-color LED backlighting in the woofers and midranges. You can select red, green, white, or blue, and set them to glow in one solid pattern or a blinking pattern. There's also a rear-facing multi-color LED light that can be turned on separately from the speaker lights. This light can be synced to your music, blink, or glow steady.
You can use this sound bar's built-in Bluetooth to listen to your favorite music apps or stored tunes streamed from your smartphone. And you don't have to be sitting in the cockpit to control your tunes because Bluetooth 5.0 provides a reliable long-range connection from your smartphone to the sound bar. You can also use the built-in EcoTalk feature to activate the voice assistant on your device (Siri, OK Google, etc.) when in you're in Bluetooth mode.
Built for life in the outdoors
Outdoor life can be tough on equipment, but this IP66-rated sound bar is built to handle dirt, dust, and water, with a rugged housing, stainless steel hardware, and durable, waterproof connections. The package includes mounting brackets and integrated, threaded mounting holes for a variety of mounting options on off-road vehicles, boats, and even golf carts.
Invite some friends
The SoundExtreme SE18 includes the nifty EcoCast technology, which will let you connect to any SoundExtreme speaker with the EcoCast feature. You can daisy-chain up to 100 of these sound bars, so heck, invite your friends, their friends, and friends-of-friends-of friends.
Build an entire system
If you're craving more bass, add on the ExtremeSub ES08 subwoofer. It connects wirelessly to your SoundExtreme soundbar and offers the same outdoor-ready durability you expect from SoundExtreme products.

More details on the SoundExtreme SE18
Overview: The SoundExtreme SE18 is an all-in-one sound system with an integrated RGB LED lighting system, designed for ATVs, off-road vehicles, marine craft, and golf carts. It includes a built-in 300 watt Class-D amplifier that powers 5 marine-grade speakers in a durable, weather-resistant enclosure. It also includes Bluetooth connectivity for audio streaming, a USB charging port, FM tuner, and a 3.5mm (1/8") stereo Aux input.
Speaker Array: Five marine-grade drivers are included in the SoundExtreme: two 2.25" midranges, one 1" tweeter (all front-firing), along with two 4" woofers - one on each end of the speaker bar.
300W Max Power: The SoundExtreme SE18 employs a 300W (Peak) Class-D amplifier for loud, dynamic sound performance that can be heard out in the open field or over the open water.
Built-In Bluetooth: The SoundExtreme SE18 offers built-in Bluetooth 5.0 for hands-free communication (HFP) and wireless audio streaming with control (A2DP/AVRCP). You can pair and connect one device at a time. If your already-paired device comes within range of the Party Bar, the two will automatically reconnect.
- Hands-Free Communication: The soundbar features a built-in microphone and lets you answer/end calls that are incoming from your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone. The caller's voice is heard through the soundbar speaker, while you talk into the soundbar's built-in mic. You will still need to use your smartphone to make a call and then the call will be transferred to the soundbar speaker system.
- Wireless Audio Streaming: You can also wirelessly stream stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth enabled source device (like a smartphone or tablet) to the SoundExtreme SE18. You can even control music playback functions like Volume up/down, Play/Pause, and Previous/Next Track from the included remote control. Advanced music navigation and song/artist information must still be done on your Bluetooth enabled smartphone or tablet.
Aux Input/Output: In addition to wireless Bluetooth connectivity, the SoundExtreme SE18 is equipped with a 3.5mm Aux input for connecting a portable audio source with an audio or headphone output. An additional 3.5mm Aux Output port is provided for daisy-chaining the signal to additional soundbars. Both ports have waterproof rubber caps.
USB: The SoundExtreme SE18 includes a front-panel USB port (type-A, 2.0) that can provide a 5V/2.1A output for charging portable devices, and also includes a waterproof rubber cap.
Note: The built-in USB port is for device charging only and does not support audio playback.
FM Radio: A built-in FM tuner lets you tune in FM stations. Right and left arrow buttons let you scan for the next available FM station. Two FM Presets can be stored in the soundbar. When a station is tuned in, pressing and holding the Bluetooth button will store the station as Preset 1. Pressing and holding the Play/Pause button will store a station as Preset 2.
Integrated RGB LEDs: The SoundExtreme SE18 features a built-in RGB LED illumination system with back-lit midrange speakers, both end-mounted woofers, and an LED light bar running along the rear panel of the soundbar. The speaker LEDs have 6 available Party Light Modes: Red Light, Green Light, White Light, Blue Light, Music Sync, and Fading (slowly cycles through multiple colors). The rear facing LED light bar can be operated independently from the speaker LEDs and includes 5 Light Modes: Red Light, Yellow Light, White (High) Light, White (Mid) Light, and White (Low) Light. The rear light bar can also be synced to the music or lit solid. Both the front and rear LEDs can be operated from the included hand-held remote or the front panel controls.
Front Panel Controls: Control for the SoundExtreme SE18 can done right from the front of the unit. Weather-proof rubber buttons are provided for Power, Bluetooth (pairing), Volume Up/Down, Fwd & Back Arrows, Play/Pause, and Mode (changes the listening source between Bluetooth, FM, and Aux-in). Two LED buttons let you independently activate the front and end-mounted LEDs. Along with the controls, the front panel includes 4 LED indicators that will light to indicate Power, Bluetooth, Mode, and Status.
EcoCast: EcoCast technology lets you increase the size of the party by letting you connect multiple EcoCast-equipped speakers (up to 50) to one SoundExtreme EcoCast speaker when using Bluetooth Audio as the sound source. The playback speaker can then broadcast its Bluetooth Audio to the other speakers, with a range of up to 30 feet. Two EcoCast modes can be selected from the front panel or the remote control: EcoCast Transmitter and EcoCast Receiver.
EcoTalk: Pressing and holding the Play/Pause button lets you activate the voice assistant on your device (Siri, OK Google, etc.) when in Bluetooth mode. When activated, the microphone on the soundbar will pick up your voice commands and transfer them to the voice assistant on your device.
Remote Control: The SoundExtreme SE18 comes with a hand-held RF remote control for wireless operation of the soundbar speaker. The included RF remote will let you wirelessly control Power On/Off, as well as cycle through Bluetooth, EcoCast Transmitting, EcoCast Receiving, FM, and Aux-In sources. The remote also gives you control of the RGB LED lighting.
Accessory Output: Along with the power input harness, the SoundExtreme SE18 includes an additional 10" Accessory Output connector. This marine grade SAE connector allows you to easily add another SoundExtreme soundbar that can be powered on/off from the front panel controls or with the remote control (connection cable not included).
Mounting Options: The SoundExtreme SE18 includes universal L-mount brackets for surface mounting the soundbar speaker, allowing it to be mounted on top of or suspended from a flat surface. 3" and 2-1/2" worm clamps are also included for mounting to roll-bars, waketowers, or cage tubing.
