Awesome sound for the great outdoors
Awesome sound for the great outdoors
Can-Am's Maverick X3 is a high-performance side-by-side with plenty of power, and MB Quart's Stage 2 kit will take your sound to the next level with a marine digital media receiver, 6-1/2” marine speakers, and a 2-channel amp. MB Quart designed this package to fit right into your Maverick, with no cutting and minimal hassle. It also comes with all the parts and pieces needed for a smooth, installation. Each component is tough enough for trail duty, so you won't have to worry about your system getting swamped.
A versatile receiver with a custom dash kit
The MB Quart GMR-LED digital media receiver packs a lot of cool stuff into a compact, outdoor-ready package that's made for your Maverick. This AM/FM/WB receiver features built-in Bluetooth®, so you can pair up quickly and stream music stored on your phone. If you have an Apple device, you'll appreciate the convenience of Apple Control. 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, the GMR-LED features a full set of preamp outputs, along with a handy camera input. This kit includes a custom-designed dash panel that holds the receiver and blends into your Maverick's dash.
Speakers that fit right in, too
The package includes a pair of NP1-116 Nautic marine speakers that are built for off-road and marine use. The durable poly cones withstand moisture and sunlight, as do the 1" titanium dome tweeters.
They're really easy to install, too, thanks to the made-for-the-Maverick X3 speaker enclosures included in this kit. These rugged enclosures bolt right in using the factory mounting holes with just a little bit of drilling. The left speaker panel works with your Maverick's Smart-Lok™ Diff capable and has all the needed factory mounts.
Plenty of power from a 2-channel amp
MB Quart's NA2-400.2 amplifier packs a lot of power into a small package that's perfect for powersports applications. This rugged Class D amp delivers 100 watts per channel at 4 ohms, so your speakers will get the juice they need.

The camera input could be used for a front thermal imaging UTV camera or boat docking camera depending on the application. The unit's 3.5" LCD screen displays a clear picture of what the camera views. The camera image can be selected manually or triggered automatically. You'll need to connect the receiver's purple/white wire to a +12V reverse gear signal wire in your vehicle to automatically trigger the camera when the vehicle is put into reverse gear.
Video Output: The GMR-LED's composite video output will mirror the marine digital receiver's screen onto an external monitor. This is a useful feature to provide a secondary screen for passengers or in other zones within a larger space, such as a boat or RV.
4-Channel Speaker Output: The MB Quart Nautic GMR-LED digital media receiver is equipped with a 20W (RMS) / 40W (Peak) x 4ch amplifier. With quick heat dissipation the system can play loud and long for years of service.
4V/6Ch Preouts: The GMR-LED marine digital media receiver offers 4V/6Ch preouts (Front/Rear/Sub) for connecting external power amplifiers. The front & rear preouts have fade capability, while the sub preouts are non-fading.
Sub Control: The unit features a low-pass crossover and subwoofer level control to fine-tune the subwoofer preouts. The low-pass crossover can be set to 80Hz, 100Hz, or 120Hz. You can also adjust the subwoofer level from 0-40 independent from the unit's overall volume control.
Dual Zone Control: You can setup a dual zone system on you boat by connecting the head unit's built-in amplifier to your interior cabin speakers (zone 1) and the receiver's preouts to an external amplifier and tower speakers (zone 2). You'll be able to control volume in both areas (zones) independently - the captain/passenger area and the tower speakers facing the skiers or wake surfers. The same source is played back in both zones with independent volume control for each zone.
Equalizer: The GMR-LED features an 8-band EQ to customize your listening experience. The 8-band EQ consists of 62, 125, 250, 500, 1k, 4k, 10k, and 16k Hz frequencies. You can store up to two Custom EQ Presets. If you prefer simpler sound customization, you can simply adjust the receiver's Bass (100Hz) & Treble (10kHz) from -7 to +7. The unit also offers Balance & Fader control.
NP1-116/Speaker Panels: The MBQX-STG2-RAD-1 includes two NP1-116 6.5" two-way, all-weather speakers, pre-installed into speaker panels designed to mount into the factory front speaker locations.
- Woofer Cone: The woofer cones are made of UV protected injection molded polypropylene.
- Mounting Gasket: Polymer gaskets are used to keep the speaker isolated from the mounting surface and improve protection from water intrusion.
- Dome Tweeter: The 1" titanium dome tweeters use waterproof, coated silk surround and are bridge mounted, rather than mounted to a pole piece, thus there is no chance of water leaking through the woofer cone.
- Crossover: A 12dB/oct. Butterworth crossover offers a smooth transition from high to low frequencies with conformal coating and PTC (Positive Thermal Coefficient) tweeter protection.
- Grilles: Each driver features a pre-attached composite grille, treated to resist UV sun fade and weather.
- Marine Grade: Tested to the highest marine and powersports standards for resisting the elements, both NP1-116 drivers carry an IPX68 weatherproof rating, making them highly resistant to water, dirt, and UV rays.
- Speaker Specifications: The 4Ω speakers can handle 60 watts RMS (120 peak). They have a frequency response of 30Hz - 22kHz and a sensitivity of 92dB.
- Speaker Panels: The MBQX-STG2-RAD-1 system includes two durable, high-impact HDPE composite speaker mounting panels that are custom designed to install the NP1-116 speakers in place of the factory front speakers. The left speaker panel includes 3 pre-cut switch openings and is Smart-Lok Differential compatible.
NA2-400.2 Amplifier: The MBQX-STG2-RAD-1 sound system includes an NA2-400.2 two-channel amplifier for driving the 6.5" speakers. The Class-D amp can output 2 x 100w RMS @4Ω or 2 x 200 RMS @2Ω and has a frequency response of 20Hz - 20kHz. The amplifier features conformal coated PC boards that resist corrosion from salt spray and moisture, and a Q-Stasis pre-amplifier stage that reduces incoming noise from a headunit, greatly improving sound quality. A dual coil Pulse-Width Modulated power supply keeps a constant steady voltage. The Class-D topology combined with aluminum heat sinks allows the amp to produce the maximum amount of power while keeping it cool. Mounting hardware is included for mounting the amp to the driver's side firewall of your compatible Can-Am X3. Amplifier front and rear panels include the following:
- Inputs: One pair of RCA jacks provides the audio input for the amp.
- Outputs: Two speaker output channels are provided on a 7" hardwired harness terminated with a 4-pin Molex connector.
- Power/Ground/Remote: A second 7" hardwired harness with Molex connector is provided for power, ground, and remote connections.
- X-Over: A 3-position slide-switch allows selection of either HP, LP, or Off. The HP and LP options include their own crossover dial with the High-pass filter allowing adjustment from 15Hz - 300Hz and the Low-pass filter adjustment ranging from 50Hz - 300Hz.
- Level: Varies the input signal level with a range of 9V - 0.2V.
