Stinger Releases 2 New Lighting Solutions for Powersports and Marine

CLEARWATER, FL –  November 19, 2019 — Today,Stinger Electronics, designer and manufacturer of high-performance audio accessories and components, has expanded its line of Universal LED Pods, SPXULED, to now include green, amber, blue, and red. With limitless possibilities from function to style, Universal LED Pods are great for marine, powersports, and on-road vehicles of all types.

The bright CREE LED pods come in pairs; these powerful lights cut through the darkness to provide safety and flair, and their aluminum housing is waterproof and dustproof, making them ideal for off-road use when conditions are less than ideal. These LED pods mount reliably and securely on both flat and tubular surfaces so that they can be used with confidence in powersports vehicles’ underbodies, engine compartments, and interiors. Multiple cable routing options are available, and mounting pads and hardware are included.

Stinger’s 8-light universal underbody, SPXRGBUBKIT8, joins the 4-way SPXRGBUBKIT. This RGB LED kit allows users to add extra dazzle to their boats and off-road powersports vehicles. Bluetooth controls make for easy use via an iPhone or Android smartphone with an app available to choose dynamic modes and colors, or music fans can even put on a light show by syncing LEDs to change with the music.

Installation is easy thanks to the plug-and-play design that does not require any soldering or crimping, so, powersports aficionados can add RGB illumination anywhere they want it.
