Four awesome speakers for serious sound
The system's four Color Optix speakers bring a lot of power to the party. These RGB LED speakers are designed for off-road and marine use, with UV-treated polypropylene cones, bridge-mounted 1" tweeters, durable Thermo-Plastic Elastomer (TPE) surrounds, Aramid fiber spiders, and integrated crossovers.
The direct-fit front speaker enclosures included in this Stage 6 kit make it easy to install the M2-65B 6-1/2" 2-way marine speakers. Made from a fiber-reinforced composite blend, they bolt right in using the factory mounting holes. No drilling needed!
Out back, the Stage 6 package gives you a pair of thunderous 8" M2WL-8HB RGB LED speakers in rugged enclosures that are definitely tough enough for the trail. The adjustable mounting clamps rotate for perfect positioning on your Maverick X3.
Control your colors
The Color Optix™ speakers bring cool, colorful lighting to your off-road adventures. You can control the lights and chose your own color patterns using the Color Optix™ Controller (sold separately) along with the free RF Connect app.
Big bass and LED lights
This system comes with not one, but TWO loaded subwoofer enclosures that are designed to fit your Maverick X3. The enclosures fit under the front seats and allow complete up-and-down travel of seat adjustment. The suspended mounting design provides optimum clearance between the floorboard and the enclosure, so you'll get outstanding bass thump from each M2D2-10IB Element Ready™ subwoofer
A 5-channel amp with plenty of power
Systems like this one require serious juice, and the 5-channel M5-1500X5 amplifier has all you need for the speakers and sub. This amp will provide outstanding power and versatility, delivering 100 watts per channel to your full-range speakers and 600 watts to your two subs. Proprietary Class AD technology allows this compact amp to deliver big power with less current draw from your electrical system, while the Constant Power feature keeps power consistent with varying impedances. The package includes the mounting plates you'll need to install this tough, trail-ready amp.

Loaded with one M2D2-10B 10" subwoofer, the down-firing enclosure can be mounted under either the front driver or passenger seat without interfering with the seat's up-and-down travel. The suspended mounting design features the optimum clearance between the floor-board and the enclosure, providing excellent bass response. The X317-STG6 kit includes two X317-M2FWE under-seat subwoofers.
Overview: The Rockford Fosgate M5-1500X5 is a 5-channel powersports amplifier with a rated power output of 100 watts per channel at 4-ohms or 2-ohms for the four main channels, and 400 watts @4Ω/600 watts @2Ω for the subwoofer channel. This Element Ready amplifier can be used on motorcycles, ATVs, UTVs, or boats, and can withstand harsh environmental conditions.
CEA-2006 Compliant: CEA-2006 is a system of testing and measurement methods for mobile audio amplifiers. This voluntary standard advocates a uniform method for determining an amplifier's RMS power output and signal-to-noise ratio. The criteria for measuring power uses a DC input voltage of 14.4 volts and the RMS power output is measured into a 4Ω load with 1% or less Total Harmonic Distortion plus noise (THD+N). CEA-2006 allows consumers to compare amplifiers and receivers under identical conditions. The CEA-2006-rated RMS power output is 100 watts RMS x 4 channels. Additionally the power output is 100 watts RMS x 4 channels into 2Ω and 200 watts RMS x 2 channels bridged (into 4Ω). The subwoofer output is rated for 400W x 1 @4Ω, 600W x 1 @2Ω, and 600W x 1 @1Ω.
Element Ready: Rockford Fosgate's Element Ready Amplifiers are protected against dust, UV rays, and corrosion. Marine-grade, two-part epoxy-coated circuit boards are used to prevent corrosion due to exposure in moist and humid places. In addition, stainless hardware is used to help prevent rust and corrosion of all electrical connections. The M5-1500X5 carries an IPX6 rating, making it impervious to water spray.
Amp Class: The M5-1500X5 features Rockford Fosgate's proprietary Class-AD technology for the front & rear speaker channels and Class-BD for the subwoofer channel. This allows the amplifier to produce more power with less current draw from the vehicle's charging system.
MEHSA 4 Cooling: The amplifier features Rockford Fosgate's MEHSA 4 (Maximum Efficiency Heat Sink Application) technology that reduces MOSFET temperatures, lowers distortion, increases durability, and prolongs the output circuitry's life span.
DSM (Discrete Surface Mount): High speed robotics are used in the manufacturing process to place 1% tolerance parts and large board traces. DSM improves the efficiency of the circuit, decreases cross-talk from other discrete components and lowers operating temperature.
CLEAN Set-Up: Rockford's integrated level setting technology, CLEAN (Calibrated Level Eliminates Audible Noise), replaces sophisticated test equipment with input/output clip LEDs, allowing you to match the source unit's output to the amp's gain, and optimize the amp's output. The input clip indicator works in conjunction with the audio source volume, illuminating red when the source reaches its clipping point. The output clip indicator works in conjunction with the input level dial on the amp, illuminating the appropriate color depending on the audio content used for the setup.
PRESET: The M5-1500X5 features Rockford Fosgate's PRESET setting (On/Off) that eliminates the need to set-up the amplifier when used with a compatible Rockford Fosgate ATV/UTV Stage 3 or Stage 4 audio kit (sold separately). When set to On, the PRESET circuitry automatically optimizes the front, rear, and subwoofer input levels, Punch EQ, and crossover settings. If manually setting these adjustments, the PRESET switch should be set to the Off position. Individual PRESET switches are provided for the front, rear, and subwoofer outputs.
Input Level: The amplifier has dual input level controls for the front and rear channels, conveniently accessible from the top. To accommodate the varying range of signal levels from today's factory and aftermarket radios, the input levels are adjustable from 150mV to 12V. A small flat-head screwdriver (not supplied) is needed to adjust the levels.
Crossover: The amplifier has three built-in crossovers for the front, rear, and subwoofer channels. All three crossovers are variable from 50Hz to 250Hz with a slope of 12dB/octave. The front and rear channels can be independently set to high-pass, all-pass (full range), or low-pass operation, while the subwoofer channel is set for low-pass operation. The rotary frequency settings can be adjusted with a small screwdriver.
Punch EQ: The amplifier has two Punch EQ functions (for front and rear) that change with the crossover switches. When the crossover is set to low-pass, the Punch EQ acts as a variable bass boost; 0 to +18dB at 45Hz. When the crossover is set to high-pass, the Punch EQ acts as a variable treble boost, 0 to +14dB at 12.5kHz. When the crossover is set to all-pass, both the bass and treble boost circuits are active. The subwoofer channel's Punch EQ acts as a variable bass boost only.
Power Connections: The M5-1500X5's power, ground, and remote turn-on terminals are located on a single 11" harness with matching adapter. The adapter accepts up to 4 AWG wire (recommended) and features set-screws for locking the wire in place. The power/ground harness is combined with the subwoofer output harness and attached to the amp in one large connector that's held in place with 2 hex-socket screws.
Speaker Connections: The amplifier is equipped with two 11" speaker output harnesses which are combined with the power/ground harness to one connector at the amplifier. Two 7.5" speaker harnesses plug into the output harnesses and provide bare-ended wire for connection to your speakers. Front and rear speaker outputs can be bridged to provide two 2 x 200W @4Ω outputs. The subwoofer output is a single channel and cannot be bridged.
Signal Input: The amplifier's Differential Inputs will accept either a line-level or speaker-level input on the Molex-style connectors. A single amp connector, secured with hex-socket screws to the amp, features three 4-pin Molex connectors on the other end for connecting the included input adapter harnesses. Each input adapter harness has a 4-pin Molex plug on one end and dual RCAs on the other end. Front and rear line-level signals can simply be connected via RCA cables from the source unit to each input harness. For a speaker-level signal, you can cut the RCA connectors from the input harnesses and splice the wires to the speaker wires of the source unit. When using a speaker-level input signal, the auto turn-on feature is active and the remote turn-on terminal becomes a 12 volt output, which can be used to turn on/off an additional amplifier or other component.
X317-K4 Amplifier Wiring Kit: The X317-K4 amplifier wiring kit allows you to add a Rockford Fosgate M5-1500X5 5-channel amplifier to select Rockford Fosgate Can-Am audio systems. The included amp mounting bracket bolts directly to the ATV's factory mounting holes (no drilling or cutting required), and all wiring is designed for plug-and-play installation.
LED Controller: The Rockford Fosgate PMX-RGB Color Optix controller lets you illuminate and control the lighting on the included M2-65B and M2WL-65MB front and rear speakers. Featuring a completely encased housing, rubberized wiring, and Element Ready watertight connectors, the PMX-RGB is IPX7 waterproof certified, making it impervious to even the harshest marine environments.
App Control: The PMX-RGB can be controlled from your smartphone using Rockford Fosgate's proprietary RF CONNECT App, available from the Apple App and Google Play stores. After connecting your smartphone wirelessly to the PMX-RGB controller, you'll be able to choose from 30 different color scrolling options or choose a fixed color from the color wheel. Scrolling speed and brightness controls are also available for customizing the lighting.
Plug&Play: The Rockford Fosgate PMX-RGB controller features easy configuration and connection via proprietary Element Ready connectors that provide a secure, watertight seal. It features 8 individual 17" RGB output cables for lighting up to 8 Rockford Fosgate Color Optix marine speakers (maximum 2A total current draw). Each connected speaker requires an extension cable and Y-adapters are optional to add routing flexibility to your installation.
