More details on the Fusion MS-ARX70B

Product Research


ANT Wireless Technology: The Fusion ARX Remote (MS-ARX70) is an ANT wireless stereo remote. ANT is an ultra-low-power (ULP) wireless networking protocol operating in the 2.4GHz band with a wireless range of 33'. Able to interface with compatible Fusion stereos, the ARX Remote can control playback in up to four audio zones.

Compatibility: The Fusion ARX Remote (MS-ARX70) can be used with a variety of Fusion ANT-enabled products including the 70 Series, 755 Series, StereoActive, Apollo RA770, Panel-Stereo, Panel-Stereo Outdoor, and MS-BB100. You will need to place your compatible Fusion marine stereo in Bluetooth discoverable mode to pair and connect with the ARX Remote. Specific compatible models include -

  • MS-RA210
  • MS-RA70, MS-RA70N, MS-RA70NSX
  • MS-AV755, MS-UD755
  • MS-BB100
  • MS-RA670, MS-RA770
  • WS-SA150 (StereoActive)
  • PS-A302 (Panel-Stereo)
  • RV-IN1501


  • Some Fusion stereos may require a firmware/software update to enable functionality with the ARX Remote ((MS-ARX70).
  • Up to eight of these remotes can be paired to one of Fusion stereo, but only one can be connected and used at a time.

Controls: The ARX Remote (MS-ARX70) can interface with compatible Fusions stereos and act as a media controller for a single zone at one time, with the ability to cycle through 4 independent audio zones for global control. Multiple ARX Remotes can be installed across the boat with one or more in each zone giving your even more control options. The rubberized tactile buttons make the ARX Remote easy to use, even in wet conditions. LED lighting in the light bar makes using the ARX Remote easy by providing essential user feedback as you control your audio entertainment. Controls include -

  • Play/Pause
  • Mute/Un-Mute
  • Volume Up/Down (global volume control for each Zone)
  • Zone & Source Selection (same audio source is played in each Zone)
  • Radio Station Tuning
  • Previous/Next Song Selection 
 Note: The remote will not be able to change the volume of connected PartyBus Fusion stereos.

UV & Water Resistant: The Fusion ARX Remote (MS-ARX70) is UV stable and rated both IPX6 and IPX7 water resistant (withstands incidental exposure to water of up to 1m for up to 30 minutes and is protected against powerful jets of water). This makes it ideal for mounting on the swim platform, bow or transom of your boat, with peace of mind that the remote is built to last wherever it is on board.

Mounting Options: The compact, low profile design makes the ARX Remote easy to fit in many different areas. Fitted with high bonding tape, the Fusion ARX Remote (MS-ARX70) is quick and easy to mount in almost any location. Stick the remote where it is most convenient, whether it is the swim platform, bow, transom, cabin, or all of the above, for endless options when it comes to remote placement.

  • Diameter: 2.5625"
  • Depth: 0.4375"
Note: No drilling or cutout required.

Battery Operated: The Fusion ARX Remote (MS-ARX70) is powered by a single CR2032 3V battery (pre-installed and user replaceable). The battery should last approximately 3 years with typical use.

Available Colors: Available in both black and white finishes, you can choose the color to suit your vessel, for discreet remote placement.

Customer Q&A

18 questions already asked

Does this work with the UD-650?
[ Michael  Mar 13, 2021 ]
1 answer
I believe you are referring to the MS-UD650 receiver which does not support ANT technology and will not work with this remote. We may have a receiver similar to the MS-UD650 that can work with this remote and I recommend contacting an advisor by calling 1-800-324-9695 to check our current inventory
[ Paul  Mar 28, 2021 ]  Staff
Hello, I currently have a Fusion BT-100 Marine Bluetooth adapter To enable Bluetooth capability on my radio. Will this remote act as a Bluetooth adapter and a remote at the same time, or will I still need the MS-100?
[ William  Mar 10, 2021 ]
1 answer
The Fusion MS-ARX70B is a remote only. It does pair to the radio via Bluetooth, however it does not give your radio Bluetooth capability. You will still need the MS-100.
[ Allison  Mar 27, 2021 ]  Staff
Can this remote control just one zone or does an action impact the other zones as well? For example, if you only want to turn down the volume in the zone on the front of the boat without impacting the volume in any other zones on the boat.
[ James Evans  Dec 17, 2020 ]
5 answers
You can set it to the 1 zone you want to control. I think you can set it for all zones too. But you cannot switch between the zones.
[ JEFFREY  Dec 17, 2020 ]
Not sure where this string started but my head unit is AV755 ifvthat matters.
[ Stewart  Dec 17, 2020 ]
Whatever individual zone volumes are set from head unit are proportionally affected by remote. The remotes are nice and can be put in pocket to operate from away from boat while on dock.
[ Stewart  Dec 17, 2020 ]
You can select what zone you want it to control.
[ Chris  Dec 17, 2020 ]
It impacts all the zones how ever you have them set up on the radio unit.
[ Rick  Dec 17, 2020 ]
Will this work with WB670?
[ Iain  Oct 21, 2020 ]
1 answer
We have not received any answers from other customers on your question. I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They should be able to help answer your question.
[ Calvin  Nov 05, 2020 ]  Staff
Will this work with WB670?
[ Iain  Oct 21, 2020 ]
1 answer
I believe it should but this remote has issues staying connected to the head unit. It is only about 4 feet from the head unit which is behind a thin door but it doesn't stay connected via blue tooth.
[ Preston  Oct 21, 2020 ]
Is this remote compatible with the Fusion srx-400 stereo?
[ Fred  May 28, 2020 ]
1 answer
I can't say for sure. It does work with the Fusion MS-RA770 Apollo Series. I don't see why not if the radio has Bluetooth capability.
[ Scott Ian  May 28, 2020 ]
Will this remote work on a MS RA55?
[ Andres  May 22, 2020 ]
3 answers
It worked just fine, easy to install, works just great. TD
[ Anthony  Jun 03, 2020 ]
I am not sure i purchased the RA70 radio and it works great with it.
[ JOHN  Jun 03, 2020 ]
I believe these remotes only work on the Fusion Apollo head units. MS-RA770 and MS-RA670
[ Steven  Jun 03, 2020 ]
will this work with the Fusion UD-750?
[ Steve  Feb 17, 2020 ]
1 answer
Hi Steve, thank you for your question. We do not show that the MS-ARX70B remote will be compatible with the MS-UD750 receiver. Feel free to chat with us online or by phone at 1-800-324-9695, an Advisor will be happy to check options of remotes that would be compatible with that receiver.
[ Jess  Mar 02, 2020 ]  Staff
Will this work with the ms- bt100 ?
[ Chris  Oct 31, 2019 ]
2 answers
It will not control the music selection or playback functions from a bluetooth device. It will control the radio, but not the phone or tablet that is streaming the music.
[ Calvin  Nov 08, 2019 ]  Staff
Not sure but I used it with the Apollo ra770 and works great. Look for the user manual. In there it talks about which radios is works with. Has to have ANT wireless technology built into the radio head unit.
[ maury  Oct 31, 2019 ]
Will this remote work with Sony MEX-M100BT?
[ Charlie  Apr 29, 2019 ]
7 answers
No. This is a "Fusion" remote, made to work with Fusion stereos.
[ JEFFREY  Apr 30, 2019 ]
No. It will only work with the Fusion head unit.
[ Jeffrey  Apr 29, 2019 ]
No sir. It's a Fusion only remote.
[ Steven  Apr 29, 2019 ]
No. It is for Fusion marine units that support ANT+.
[ Chris  Apr 29, 2019 ]
Unfortunately I don't have the answer to that?
[ Mario  Apr 29, 2019 ]
No. This only works with certain FUSION models
[ Robert  Apr 29, 2019 ]
Late model Fusion units only.
[ Robert  Apr 29, 2019 ]
Will this work on a fusion ms-ra205?
[ Colin  Mar 06, 2019 ]
1 answer
No that MS-RA205 is not one of the models we are aware of that works with that wireless Fusion MS-ARX70B remote. The MS-RA70 is a similar model that would work:
[ Cosmo  Mar 11, 2019 ]  Staff
will these remotes work with Fusion MS-RA70i ??
[ Gator  Feb 27, 2019 ]
2 answers
It should work with all MS-RA70 models. I have the MS-RA70N and it works great.
[ Jeremy  Feb 27, 2019 ]
Yes. Works with all 70 series head units
[ Jeff  Feb 27, 2019 ]
Can more than 1 of these remotes be connected to MS RA770 at the same time?
[ Bill  Jan 30, 2019 ]
2 answers
I think so as no pairing was required for the one I have. Plan on buying another and this is a reminder to do so.
[ Stewart  Dec 17, 2020 ]
Yes they can. this remote is a game changer for anyone that doenst want to run wires all the way around their boat
[ Robert  Jan 30, 2019 ]
Is there an option to screw this to the hull as well?
[ av8or  Aug 14, 2020 ]
4 answers
You dont need to screw they come with a glue pad.and is very useful
[ omar  Sep 01, 2020 ]
I don't remember if there was a screw on option, but I have two of them stuck in different places and they have not moved. I think you would be happy with the stick on option in most applications.
[ Scott  Aug 31, 2020 ]
You will not need to screw this to the hull. The adhesive for the base is very strong. Also, the remote can be removed from the base with 1/4 turn and carried probably at least 50' from the radio and it will still control it.
[ David  Aug 31, 2020 ]
No. It's got a base with 2 sided tape. However you can remove the remote from base if you want. I have 3 of them in my boat. Love them
[ JP374  Aug 31, 2020 ]
Does the head unit have to be line of sight for this remote to work? Could the head unit be inside of glove box and this remote still control it?
[ PATRICK  Mar 10, 2020 ]
4 answers
It does not need to be line of sight. My head unit is at least 15ft away in the boat cabin.
[ Jeremy  Mar 10, 2020 ]
The head unit does not have to be in line of sight. I have my head unit installed in a pontoon boat and use 2 of these remotes. One of the remotes has no line of sight and it works just fine.
[ STEVE  Mar 10, 2020 ]
My head unit is in glove box above remote and not in line of site. Always works perfectly.
[ LYLE  Mar 10, 2020 ]
The remote works via Bluetooth and doesn't need to be in direct line of sight to work. As for the head unit still receiving while inside a closed box that would depend on a number of factors including how close the remote is to the unit and how sealed the box is as well. Overall I am very please with these remotes and have purchased multiple for a variety of applications, they've proven to be quite capable units.
[ John  Mar 10, 2020 ]
Can I still pair by phone to the head unit along w/ the remote? Or can only one device be paired to the head unit via bluetooth?
[ KEvin  Jul 31, 2019 ]
7 answers
Multiple remotes can be paired at the same time as a mobile device. Currently running that exact set up and works great!
[ John  Aug 01, 2019 ]
Yes, you can have both
[ Craig  Jul 31, 2019 ]
yes both can be paired at least it is working for me
[ shannon  Jul 31, 2019 ]
I have my cell phone hooked up via blue tooth and/or the Fusion App and the remote still works to adjust volume and skip and pause. So I believe the answer is yes. Very happy with the device as my boat is a center console and I am constantly adjusting volume as we start, adjust throttle speed and stop. Much easier to adjust with this device rather than the head unit which is in overhead console or my phone which I can never find. Best of luck, Lyle
[ LYLE  Jul 31, 2019 ]
Yes, i was able to connect both at the same time and control the system with either.
[ Steven  Jul 31, 2019 ]
Yes you can use your phone and remotes at the same time.
[ Ethan  Jul 31, 2019 ]
Yes you can connect via the fusion app on phone or with remotes
[ JP374  Jul 31, 2019 ]
Will this remote work with my MS-AV 750 ?
[ Barry  Mar 16, 2019 ]
1 answer
Yes it will work. The only thing is that this unit is tiny compared to older model remotes. If you have a pre existing hole you may need to do something because it will be too big for this model.
[ Mario  Mar 16, 2019 ]
