NEENAH, WI -- March 20, 2006 -- Custom Marine Inc (CMI) has raised the bar for sound reduction technology with the introduction of a new stainless steel Sound Elimination Systems™ muffler that enables high-performance boats with engines rated at 500-horsepower and above to meet most sound emission regulations. This new muffler system reins in exhaust noise emissions to levels as low as 86 decibels (dB) with little to no measurable loss of horsepower or performance.

The addition of this all-stainless-steel-constructed muffler to the CMI Sound Elimination Systems line allows the company to reach its goal of providing state-of-the-art sound reduction systems for nearly every marine engine application.
