King's new RV Bluetooth weatherproof speaker and awning light took home the first place for Product of the Year at the 2016 RVAA Executive Conference in Chicago.
"We are ecstatic for our RV Media product to be recognized by RVAA as the 2016 Product of the Year," King Vice President of Sales Bob Barra says. "Our commitment to bringing new and innovative products to the RV market is the driving force instilled in our company by our founder and CEO, Lael King. Recognition from RVAA inspires us to continue to lead the way for innovative product offerings designed to enhance the RV experience. Our hope is for RV Media by King to be synonymous with Bluetooth/Light technology the same way our Tailgater is with portable/mountable satellite systems.”
The weatherproof speaker can be used to stream all of your favorite music directly to the campsite. The speaker and awning light can replace the exterior awning/porch light with energy efficient, long lasting LEDs and premium Bluetooth speakers that are hard-wired to the RV. A simple, two-wire connection is all that’s required. Because of the connection, there are no batteries to replace and no worrying about recharging it.
The favorite music can be streamed wirelessly via Bluetooth from a smart phone, tablet or other Bluetooth-enabled device. Basic and premium models are available in black or white. The premium version can be controlled wirelessly via a free downloadable App from a smartphone or tablet with features including a music equalizer and light power, dimming and color control and a bug light feature.
