All sorts of sources

The AWMC3 has the basics more than covered, with an AM/FM/WB tuner that will keep you up to date with the world around you and the world back home. There's also built-in Bluetooth connectivity for music streaming, plus an AUX input and a charging USB input. If you love SiriusXM satellite radio (and who doesn't?), you can connect a tuner and enjoy all your favorite music, sports, and entertainment programs (subscription required).

Big sound for the great outdoors

Everything will sound awesome, thanks to a selectable EQ and a built-in amplifier that will bring out the best in your speakers. If you want to add even more awesomeness, the front and rear preouts will come in handy for connecting outboard amps.  You'll also appreciate the backlit control buttons and the wired remote control port.

    Product Research


    All Weather Design (IP66 Rated): The MTX AWMC3 digital media receiver is designed to withstand anything you may encounter in nature along your ride - including wind, sand, rain, snow, sleet, and any other kind of bad weather you might find yourself riding in. The AWMC3 digital media receiver can be used in any environment and its large rubber buttons make it easy to operate under even the most adverse conditions.

    3" Display w/ Large Buttons: The AWMC3 digital media receiver features a 3" full color TFT display with auto or manual dimming for better visibility. It also offers large backlit soft-touch buttons that are easy to use even while wearing gloves.

    20W x 4Ch Amplifier: The digital media receiver features a built-in 20W (RMS)/50W (Peak) x 4Ch amplifier for connection of up to four speakers.

    2V/4Ch Pre-Outs: The digital media receiver is outfitted with two sets of 2-volt pre-outs (front & rear) for adding external amplifiers for even bigger sound.

    Customizable EQ: You can customize the receiver's sound through selectable EQ Presets (Classic, Jazz, Rock, Pop, Optimal, Custom). The Custom mode allows you to manually adjust the 8-band EQ (62, 125, 250, 500, 1k, 4k, 10k, 16k Hz). There is also balanced and fade control.

    Bluetooth Audio Streaming: Thanks to built-in Bluetooth, you can stream stored music and music apps on your Bluetooth source device to the digital media receiver. You'll also get basic playback controls (like Play/Pause & Previous Next Track), along with song/artist info and album art display. If you have an Apple 5S and up device, you can even browse your Bluetooth music by song/artist/playlist from the receiver. Only one Bluetooth source device can be paired and connected at a time.

    Note: This unit does not offer Bluetooth hands-free phone communication for answering and making phone calls.

    USB MSC Playback: The unit's rear-panel USB (type-A) port allows playback of MP3 music files from a USB MSC (mass storage class) device, like a USB thumbdrive or portable digital audio player. You'll get basic playback control (Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track) and the display of song/artist info with album art on the receiver. The unit will also charge your connected portable digital audio player.

    Note: The unit's USB port does not support Android devices.

    iPod/iPhone Compatible: The receiver's USB port can also be used to connect your Apple iPod or iPhone with Lightning connector (not compatible with 30-pin devices). Simply use the cable that came with your Apple Lightning device or a 3rd party Apple certified Lightning-to-USB cable (sold separately). The unit supports audio playback of stored music and music apps, music navigation (song/artist/album/playlist), song/artist info with album art, and charging of your compatible Apple Lightning device.

    Note: Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset the head unit and your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't work, you may need to wait until a newer software update is available.

    AM/FM/WB Tuner: The receiver features a built-in AM/FM tuner with manual, seek, and preset (12AM/18FM) tuning. You can choose between US or European tuning. A Local option tunes to only nearby radio stations with sufficiently strong signals for good reception. The unit is also equipped with a built-in weather band tuner. Select from weather band frequencies between 162.4 to 162.55.

    SiriusXM Ready: The digital media receiver is SiriusXM-Ready and compatible with the SiriusXM Connect Vehicle Tuner (220SXV300 sold separately), so you can listen to over 140 SiriusXM channels. SiriusXM subscription required. The unit offers manual, seek, preset (up to 18), direct, and category tuning. It also provides parental control to block unsuitable content.

    Note: A separate SiriusXM Satellite Radio subscription is required (operates on the XM Network). However, you can easily add this SiriusXM tuner to an existing Sirius or XM account for a Multi-Radio Discount Plan.

    Aux Input: The MTX digital media receiver is fitted with a rear-panel stereo RCA AUX input to connect an external audio source.

    Mounting Options: The MTX AWMC3 digital media receiver requires a 3" diameter cut-out. It can be secured into place using the included mounting plate and four screws, or using the included U-shaped bracket and two screws. The supplied trim-ring hides the mounting screws for a neat installation. Dimensions are as follows -

    • Cut-Out: 3.0" (diameter) x 4.125" (depth)
    • Front-Panel: 4.4375" (width) x 4.375" (height) x 1.25" (depth)
    • Trim-Ring: 4.5625" (width) x 4.5625" (height) x 0.875" (depth)

    Optional Polaris RZR Dash Kit: The MUDRZRDK custom-fit dash kit (236RZRDK, sold separately) is designed specifically to allow installation of the MTX AWMC3 digital media receiver in select Polaris RZR side-by-side vehicles. The MUDRZRDK fits in the space occupied by the factory pocket found in the dashboard allowing for easy installation and a stock look.

    Does this have GPS capacity
    [ RONALD M.  Jan 21, 2022 ]
    This will fit as long as you have the room for the back of the unit to clear. I think its like 4" round hole and wiring. Hope this helps.
