About the MTX RZR-14-THUNDER2
Awesome audio for your RZR
Awesome audio for your RZR
MTX's RZR-14-THUNDER2 kit is a smart way to add great sound to your 2014-up Polaris RZR. This inclusive kit includes the MTX AWMC3 digital media receiver and a pair of 6-1/2” RZR-14-FS RGB LED front speakers in custom pods, plus all the wiring and hardware you'll need for a hassle-free installation.
It all starts with a great little receiver
The rugged, all-weather MTX AWMC3 multimedia controller is designed for off-road use and built to last. You can enjoy all your favorite tunes from a variety of sources, and see what's playing on the 3" color TFT display. 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).
The receiver mounts in your RZR's lower center pocket using the included dash kit. You'll also get integrated quick-connect harnesses that work with MTX's MUD100.4 4-channel amp and MUD600-1 mono amp (amps not included).
Custom-fit speaker pods
Designed specifically for your 2014-up RZR, these two custom speaker pods mount directly into existing kick panel locations using MTX POD-LOC technology, so you can install them without the hassle of cutting or drilling into your ATV.
Each rugged polypropylene pod houses a weather-resistant coaxial RGB LED 6-1/2" speaker featuring a poly cone and a Mylar dome tweeter for exceptional sound quality. The durable speaker pods will blend right into your RZR's interior for a smooth, subtle factory look, and you can control the light show with the included remote control.
Designed for DIY-ers
The MTX RZR-14-THUNDER2 kit comes with all the off-road ready wiring you'll need to connect everything, and each wire is terminated with the correct plug to make your installation easier.
Note: This kit is designed for RZR models that are NOT equipped with the RideCommand system.
