Per Wetsounds Facebook, shipping soon will be the Wetsounds Bluetooth EQ.
Notice the face is slightly larger than the standard single DIN and has mounting holes which provides an easy and second mounting option.
All the features of the WS420SQ are maintained.

Interesting ... the bluetooth integration might be the tipping point for me to switch from the Krypt version.

+1 on having already bought a WS420BT and wishing I'd have been able to get a WS420BT. The DIN sized face would be WAY better in my boat since I don't run a head unit. Grrrr...

There should be plenty of opportunity to sell the SQ version at a reasonable price with the new BT version at $399. And I think that the SQ model could be ongoing.
I do know that dealers had no more notice than their consumers as the dealer newsletter went out on the same day as the Facebook announcement. Also, an exact shipping date on the BT is unknown.
I spoke to Odin with Earmark Marine today and he is ahead of the curve working on an upgrade discount plan for his customers who recently purchased an SQ model from him. As he told me, he realizes that many northern consumers have yet to install their EQ and won't be using it for several months. So if you are a customer of Odin's then give him a buzz in a couple of days after he has put together a plan in consideration of recent purchasers.
