MTX Audio announced that it is updating and expanding its line-up of universal audio kits for off-road and UTV applications.
To date, MTX has offered five different kits in the category with its ORV and BORV series kits. These came in two- and four-speaker configurations using the MUD65PL wake speakers and featured a choice of a Bluetooth connected media controller, the MUDBTRC, or interconnection options with a 3.5-millimeter aux cable or a pair of RCAs allowing the user to connect to an existing source or media device. All kits also included the MUD100.2 two-channel amplifier for power as well as a complete power kit and speaker wire.
The new kit offering will expand the family to a total of 12 available kits in six different two- and four-speaker configurations. One major change is in the source unit options. Besides continuing to offer kits featuring the MUDBTRC Bluetooth controller, it is adding two additional variations, one featuring the AWMC3 media receiver and the other with the MUDBTSW Bluetooth switch. The AWMC3 features a 3-inch full-color screen with AM/FM radio, auxiliary input, Bluetooth connectivity and is expandable with SiriusXM satellite radio. The MUDBTSW has an integrated auxiliary input and Bluetooth connectivity and is designed to fit in the standard switch knockout of most side-by-side vehicles.
For interconnection options, the 3.5-millimeter auxiliary and RCA add-on kits will continue while adding a new configuration designed for Polaris vehicles featuring their Ride Command system. This kit will use the PRCAA Ride Command adapter to allow the user a plug and play option for quickly interconnecting to the factory output. This lets the customer connect and play audio through the Ride Command console.
“Our goal is to provide customers complete audio solutions for their UTV, and while our vehicle-specific systems are the ultimate choice, we realize there are dozens of other UTV models in the market that don’t have this option,” said Director of Sales and Marketing Jason Fickas. “Outside of our overhead systems, our current family of universal kits has been very successful, and based on consumer feedback, we’re now expanding the family from five options to 12. Whether you’re adding onto you existing system or Ride Command or prefer to pick from several source unit options, you’re sure to find a kit that suits your style and still comes with everything you need for installation all in one box. High performance made simple.”
The new universal audio kits are slated to start shipping in mid-November, and more information can be found at www.MTX.com.
