Hit the trails and crank some tunes
MB Quart's Stage 2 kit is a great way to bring big sound to your Polaris RZR. With a marine digital media receiver, 8" all-weather speakers, and a 2-channel amp, this system is built to perform and also built to stand up to your off-road adventures.
MB Quart designed this package to fit right into your RZR, with no cutting and minimal hassle. It also comes with all the parts and pieces needed for a smooth, hassle-free installation. Each component is tough enough for trail duty, so you won't have to worry about your system getting swamped.
A rugged receiver for your RZR
MB Quart's GMR-LED digital media receiver packs a lot of cool stuff into a compact, outdoor-ready package. This AM/FM/WB receiver features built-in Bluetooth®, so you can pair up quickly and stream music stored on your phone. If you prefer to plug in, you'll find an AUX input and a charging USB input.
If you want to expand your system later, three sets of preamp outputs make the job a little easier. You'll also find a composite video camera input and a composite video output. This kit includes a custom-designed dash panel that holds the receiver and blends into your RZR's dash, along with a dash-mount panel with aux and USB inputs.
Speaker and pods made for your ride
This package includes a pair of 8" NH1-120B compression horn marine speakers that are built for off-road and marine use. The durable poly cones withstand moisture and sunlight, as do the 1" titanium tweeters. They're easy to install, too, thanks to the RZR-specific speaker enclosures included in this kit. These rugged kick panel enclosures bolt right in using the factory mounting holes with just a little bit of drilling.
A rugged amp with plenty of juice
MB Quart's NA2-400.2 amplifier packs a lot of power into a small package that's perfect for powersports applications. This rugged 2-channel Class D amp delivers 100 watts per channel at 4 ohms, so your speakers will get the power they need.
