ASA Electronics Releases JHD916BT Stereo

Tue Jul 11, 2017

148095688691540.jpgELKHART, Ind. - ASA Electronics is on the forefront of engineering technology made especially for the heavy duty market, the latest of which is the JHD916BT.

This Bluetooth, Sirius XM Ready, weatherproof stereo is specially designed to withstand the uncommonly harsh environment of the heavy duty market. Its small size, deemed “mini,” sets it apart from its counterparts and allows it to fit into almost any space inside a vehicle.

Don’t let the JHD916BT’s size fool you; this stereo was engineered with ASA's customers’ favorite features in mind. That includes Bluetooth hands-free calling, 12-volt DC power, rear USB inputs, aux front and rear inputs and Sirius XM capability.

This model also comes equipped with seven-channel NOAA weather band to keep customers one step ahead of changing weather conditions. The JHD916BT will even switch automatically to the NOAA channels in the event of a severe weather alert in the area.

Navigating through all these functions is designed to be simple with the JHD916BT’s daylight readable display but customers won’t just be controlling the stereo. The new model is iPhone/iPod compatible through the USB, allowing RVers to charge their device and control it all from the stereo’s display.
