About the Memphis Audio 16-MXA1MC
Powerful and practical
Powerful and practical
Fits in a standard gauge opening
Memphis Audio's MXA1MC digital media receiver combines today's tech with old-school engineering excellence in a compact package that's ideal for boats and powersports vehicles. This receiver is designed to fit into a standard gauge opening, so it's a great choice for ATVs or small boats. But don't let the compact exterior fool you – Memphis packs a lot of features into this weather-resistant receiver.
Plenty of entertainment options
Use the built-in Bluetooth® to stream music from your smartphone or other Bluetooth-enabled device. If you want to enjoy your own music collection, you can also plug a music player into the rear aux input or pop a thumb drive into the rear USB port.
You can also tune into local radio using the AM/FM tuner. And if you're planning to add an amp to your system, you'll appreciate the rear-mounted 4-channel preamp outputs.
Smart engineering makes a difference
The rotary volume knob isn't just a retro touch—it's a thoroughly practical detail that really makes sense in rough water or on the trail — especially when you're wearing gloves. The big LED display gives you the info you need, while the watertight, UV-resistant face and easy-to-use controls will stand up to the rigors of marine use.
