It takes two
Space is at a premium in most side-by-sides, but that doesn't mean you have to settle for ordinary sound. The SSV Works MRB3 digital media receiver gives you outstanding performance from a clever, compact two-piece design that's made for off-roading. The weatherproof control panel goes on the dash and the hideaway black box unit mounts out of sight.

You can do a lot with this little receiver combo. Connect to Bluetooth, listen to AM/FM radio stations, or plug a device into the optional AUX input. The built-in 2-ohm stable amp can send up to 200 watts peak power to as many as 8 speakers, so whatever you're playing will sound great. Want more sound? There's a set of RCA preamp outputs for sending signal to an extra amp or a powered subwoofer.
The package also includes the SSV Works USB35AVCa panel mount charging USB input for your iPod or MP3 player. The mount comes with a volume knob and a 3.5mm audio cable.
Made for off-roading
The controller's bright white LED display is easy to read in all kind of conditions, and backlit, rubber-coated buttons are big enough to be used when you're wearing gloves. At just a bit over 3” wide and less than 1” deep, it's easy to find the perfect spot to install this rugged, off-road ready controller. And that spot doesn't have to be on a side-by-side, either. The MRB3 is also a great choice for Jeeps, boats, golf carts, and other vehicles.
