Marine, Display, & Installation Features

Marine Grade Protection with Life Shield: The MB Quart MDR2.0 digital media receiver meets or exceeds IPX5 requirements for water and dust protection, making it ideal for marine or off-road environments. Rest assured, when you see the MB Quart Life Shield icon, you are choosing a product that is engineered to the highest standards and built to last.

High-Contrast Display: The MB Quart MDR2.0 features a high contrast display that allows easy viewing and control. Regardless of full sun or shade, the display is clearly visible. The front-panel LCD will display source and menu selections, as well as song/artist/album information (no album art) from USB, iPod/iPhone, and Bluetooth devices.

Mounting Options: The compact chassis of the MDR2.0 offers greater installation flexibility and placement options because of its shallow depth, so it fits well in nearly any recreational vehicle's dashboard - motorcycle, UTV/ATV, or watercraft. The MB Quart MDR2.0 requires a rectangular cutout and mounts to the dash or bulkhead with four screws (not included) through the front-panel of the receiver.

  • Cutout Dimensions: 7.035" (w) x 2.015" (h) x 4.755" (d)
  • Front-Panel Dimensions: 7.595" (w) x 2.365" (h) x 0.8125"
  • Screw-Hole Spacing: 7.25" (w) x 1.25" (h) x 1.0"

Note: Even though the MB Quart MDR2.0 has a Single-DIN chassis, it is not designed to work in standard Single-DIN automotive openings because it lacks a mounting sleeve and removable trim-ring; plus mounts with four screws (not included) through the front-panel of the receiver.

Variety Of Sources

Bluetooth Audio Streaming: The MB Quart MDR2.0 features built-in Bluetooth 4.0 with support for wireless audio playback (AD2P) and control (AVRCP). You'll be able to wirelessly stream stored music, music apps, and other audio content on your Bluetooth device to the MDR2.0 receiver. You can operate basic playback functions, such as Play/Pause & Skip Next/Previous, from the unit's front-panel controls (advanced music control will still need be done from your Bluetooth-enabled source device). The unit will also display song/artist/album information (no album art) of your Bluetooth streaming music. The unit offers quick and easy wireless connection to your Bluetooth enabled device thanks to Simple Secure Pairing (SSP). When the unit powers up, it immediately connects to the last device connected. The unit has a Bluetooth wirelessly range of approximately 32'.

Notes: This unit does not support Bluetooth hands-free communication for making and answering phone calls.

USB Port: The MB Quart MDR2.0 is equipped with a rear-panel USB (type-A) port attached to the chassis by a 6" pigtail (no extension cable included). The USB port allows you to connect a USB MSC (mass storage class) device, like a USB thumbdrive. The unit supports audio playback & control of MP3 and WMA audio files stored on a compatible USB thumbdrive or other MSC device. The unit offers File/Folder Search, Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track functions. This unit will also display song/artist/album information (no album art). The unit also charges your connected USB device (up to 0.5A).

Note: The unit's USB port does not support Android devices, USB hubs, card-readers, and computers/laptops.

iPhone Direct Connect: The unit's rear-panel USB port can be used to connect your Lightning-connector or 30-pin dock connector iPod/iPhone with the cable that came with your Apple device. The MDR2.0 supports audio playback, basic control (Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track), song/artist/album display (no album art), and charging of your compatible Apple device. You will continue to use your iPod/iPhone for advanced music browsing. Compatible iPod/iPhone devices include -

  • iPhone: 4 and newer
  • Touch: 4th generation and newer
  • Nano: 5th generation and newer
  • Classic: 80GB, 120GB, and 160GB
Note: Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset the unit and your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't work, you may need to wait until a newer software update is available.

Aux Input: This unit features a rear mounted, stereo RCA auxiliary input on a 7" pigtail so you can connect an external audio source. An RCA-to-Minijack cable (sold separately) will be required for the connection of a portable audio player with a headphone jack output.

AM/FM Radio: The MB Quart MDR2.0 digital media receiver features an AM/FM radio that utilizes a PLL Synthesized crystal for strong reception. The built-in AM/FM radio offers manual, seek, and preset tuning. You can store up to 18 FM and 12 AM presets for a total of 30 AM/FM radio station presets. There are no physical preset buttons on the front-panel of the receiver. To access your presets, you will need to navigate the digital media receiver's menu. You can select between USA and European tuning.

Audio Section

16W x 4ch Amplifier: The MB Quart MDR2.0 is equipped with a built-in 16 watt (RMS) / 40 watt (Peak) x 4 channel amplifier that can drive up to two pair of 4-ohm loudspeakers.

4Ch/5V Pre-Outs: The MDR2.0 digital media receiver is also outfitted with 4-channels of 5-volt preamp outputs (Front & Rear) for connection of an external 4-channel power amplifier. The pre-outs are front and rear fading.

EQ: You can choose between six EQ Preset modes - Classical, Rock, Pop, Flat, Jazz, Off. The Off mode allows you to manually adjust the receiver's Bass (100Hz) & Treble (10kHz) from -10dB to +10dB.

Loudness: There is also a Loudness function that enhances low and high frequencies at lower volume levels, making them easier to hear. In addition, the unit offers

Program Volume: This function allows you to set the volume level at which the unit powers up again depending on what the volume level was when the unit was last turned off.

Beep Tone: Every time a button is pressed, the unit will output a beep tone (this can be turned off).

The MB Quart website says the MDR 2.0 has a weather band and comes with a remote control. Are either of these true for the unit sold through Crutchfield? Thanks.

Never tried/checked weatherband. There is no included remote. I dont remember if there is a hook-up for one either, i think you can add an external gauge sized one, but it has been a year since my install. You may be able to check the MB Quart page for a user manual to get a better Idea.
ryan  Apr 12, 2021
No remote control came with mine. I haven't tried to find a weather band. I use mine on my Harley as a Bluetooth receiver. I play pandora, that's all I do. If I want the weather, I ask Google.
