Continental recently introduced its new VDO IZI wireless speakers for a wide range of vehicle applications.
The new speakers are designed for wireless connection for streaming music, and they pair easily with any Bluetooth device – including smartphones, iPads and laptops – to deliver a premium sound experience in any application, according to the company.
They also can be connected to a passive speaker to create a stereo sound and feature an integrated microphone for hands-free calling.
Rugged construction and waterproof design make the speakers an excellent choice for 12-volt applications in automotive, heavy-duty, off-highway, marine and powersports vehicles and equipment, according to the company.
Available in black or white, VDO IZI wireless speakers feature a 5.12-inch speaker and a 2x 40-watt (max) / 2x 25-watt (RMS) internal amplifier packaged in a 6.5-by-4.48-inch housing. Front speakers are waterproof to IP68 and rear to IP65.
VDO IZI wireless speakers also incorporate a USB port to charge smartphones and other devices and an auxiliary input for optional devices. Accessories include an external microphone and remote control for volume, source, next/previous, ON/OFF and OFF Hook/ON Hook.
A 12-volt power supply is required for operation.
“Vehicle owners, drivers and fleet managers are looking for a durable, high-quality speaker solution that doesn’t require wiring and is extremely easy to hook up,” said Jeffrey Ross, product management supervisor for Continental Commercial Vehicles and Services. “Our new VDO IZI wireless speakers are designed to deliver a consistent, high-quality sound in both indoor and outdoor applications. Built to withstand water, corrosion and heat, these innovative speakers are the right choice to deliver perfect sound quality in a variety of applications.”
