Upgrade the audio in your Maverick X3

The MTX X3-17-THUNDER3 kit is the biggest, baddest audio and light upgrade around for your 2017-up Can-Am Maverick X3. This sweet-sounding 3-speaker kit includes the MTX AWMC3 digital media receiver with a custom dash kit, two 6-1/2” MTX X3-17-FS-L RGB LED speakers in custom kick panel pods, a 12” X3-17-SW-D underseat subwoofer, a 4-channel amplifier, and a mono amplifier to power the sub, plus all the wiring and brackets you'll need for a hassle-free installation.

A complete controller

The heart of this system is the MTX AWMC3 multimedia controller. With this rugged, all-weather controller, you can enjoy all your favorite tunes from a variety of sources, and see what's playing on the 3" color TFT display. There's an AM/FM/WB tuner, built-in Bluetooth connectivity for music streaming, plus an AUX input and a charging USB input. The AWMC3 will also work with your SiriusXM tuner (sold separately, subscription required).

The low-profile MTX X3-17-DK dash kit mounts using the existing factory mounting points, retains full access to the factory fuse panel, and won't interfere with factory or aftermarket intrusion bars. The color and texture is made to match your Maverick, so you'll get a smooth, factory look.

Kickin' kick panel speakers

Each molded and sealed kick panel pod houses an outdoor-ready coaxial 6-1/2" RGB LED speaker with a polypropylene woofer and Mylar dome tweeter. The durable finish provides a smooth, subtle factory look, and these speakers won't get in the way if you decide to install an aftermarket cage. These speaker pods mount directly into the lower kick panel locations.

A pair of powerful, compact amps

The MTX MUD100.4 full-range Class D amp gives what you want from a UTV amp — outstanding sound quality and excellent thermal efficiency. This compact, marine-rated 4-channel amp pumps out 50 watts RMS per channel, so you'll have the juice you need for your speakers (plus power to run another set of speakers you might add later).

For the subwoofer, there's the MTX MUD600-1 mono amp. This remarkably compact all-weather amp uses Class D technology to produce a remarkable 300 watts of RMS power at 4 ohms, so your system's sub will get the oomph it needs.

Big beat under the seats

MTX's X3-17-SW-D (driver's side) underseat subwoofer enclosures bring outstanding bass performance to this system. The rugged slimline enclosure houses a 12” shallow-mount, down-firing sub that can handle up to 300 watts of power. The enclosure mounts directly under the driver's seat and it won't impact seat adjustability. The integrated waterproof harness connects this sub to the MTX MUD600-1 mono amp with minimal hassle.

Bluetooth note: Use of the receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

iPod®/smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

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.

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.

Headunit Dash Kit: The included MTX X3-17-DK custom dash kit is designed to mount the MTX AWMC3 all-weather media headunit into select Can-Am X3 side-by-side vehicles. The kit provides a low-profile installation and mounts using the factory mounting locations, with no drilling or cutting required. Access to the factory fuse panel will still be retained and the kit won't interfere with any factory or aftermarket intrusion bars. The mounting kit is factory color and texture matched for a seamless look and feel.

Speakers & RGB Controller

Kick Panel Speakers : The MTX X3-17-FS-L speaker pods are designed to mount into the lower kick-panels of select 2017-up Can-Am X3 vehicles and feature pre-installed MTX 6-1/2" 2-way drivers. Each heavy-duty speaker pod is sealed for protection from the elements.

2-Way Speakers: The included 6-1/2" drivers feature polypropylene woofer cones along with a coaxially-mounted 1" Mylar dome tweeter.

RGB LED Lighting: Each speaker includes built-in RGB LED lighting which can be powered and controlled using an optional MUDLEDC RGB lighting controller (sold separately).

Enclosures: The X3-17-FS-L kick-panel enclosures feature a roto-molded sealed design with factory matched texturing. Each kick-panel speaker pod features MTX's Fully Adjustable, Single Tool (F.A.S.T.) mounting system that uses powder-coated, machined billet aluminum clamps for maximum fitment flexibility. This lets you adjust the placement relative to the vehicle's body panels, eliminating gap issues and ensuring the best possible fit. Pre-installed wiring harnesses with each speaker pod are terminated in watertight connectors for a direct connection to compatible MTX powersports components.

Controller Wiring: The miniature RGB LED controller can be plugged directly into the RGB connector on the included headunit T-harness, allowing it control the LED lighting in the speaker pods through the factory wiring. The other end of the controller features bare-ended wire for connecting to a +12VDC power and ground source in the vehicle. An optional toggle switch (sold separately) is recommended in order to easily remove power from the MUDLEDC when the vehicle will not be in use for long periods of time.

The loaded 12" subwoofer enclosure features a roto-molded sealed design with factory matched texturing. MTX's One Tool Installation System (O.T.I.S) makes installation easy by using factory mounting points with no cutting or drilling. The waterproof subwoofer enclosure won't interfere with the seat position or height, with either factory or aftermarket seats. Included loomed wiring harnesses allow the X3-17-SW-D to plug directly into compatible MTX powersports components.
