Press Release (UNEDITED): PHOENIX – MTX Audio, of the MiTek Electronics and Communications Group, is announcing the introduction of all new audio kits and components to their lineup for select Can-Am Maverick X3 model vehicles. This new offering is building off the success of the Polaris RZR audio kits introduced last year and will be available for most 2017 and newer model vehicles.
The new components will consist of a low-profile dash mounting kit that works with our AWMC3 media receiver, fully assembled front upper and separate lower speaker enclosures as well as available driver and passenger loaded subwoofer enclosures.
The source unit mounting kit features the lowest profile of any on the market and mounts using existing factory mounting points. It retains full access to the factory fuse panel and does not interfere with any factory or aftermarket intrusion bars. The mounting shroud is factory color and texture matched for a seamless look and feel once installed.
The upper dash speakers incorporate a newly developed 4-inch coaxial driver with neodymium motor structure designed to deliver higher output and better clarity than standard off the shelf 4-inch speakers. This is combined with a weather tight enclosure that fits to the upper dash panels and uses a Rider Aligned Acoustical Design (R.A.A.D.) that delivers more on-axis sound than other designs and features an integrated plug and play harness. Additionally, the design does not require additional brackets or major modification to the upper panels and fitment works with all factory and aftermarket roll cages which feature intrusion bars.
The lower kick panel enclosures use a 6.5-inch coaxial driver with integrated RGB lighting in a weathertight plug and play design. The harness also integrates an expansion plug to easily add-on the upper dash speakers eliminating the need for extensive rewiring when adding them into the system. The Fully Adjustable, Single Tool (F.A.S.T.) mounting system uses powder coated machined billet aluminum clamps and is designed to give maximum fitment flexibility. This allows the installer to adjust the placement relative to the vehicles body panels eliminating gap issues and ensuring the best fit possible.
The sub enclosures consist of an industry first, high output 12-inch subwoofer in a sealed Slim Line Enclosure Design (S.L.E.D.) that mounts under the seats. The enclosures are down firing with integrated 300-watt shallow mount subwoofers and will not interfere with any of the vehicles high/low position seat adjustability for both factory and aftermarket seats. Installation is made easy with our One Tool Installation System (O.T.I.S.) which reduces the install time and complexity eliminating the need for multiple tools or vehicle modification. High density Neoprene foam has been applied to all contact points to eliminate panel rattles and an anti-vibration kit with installation tool is provided in the package.
Also being introduced are all new complete plug and play packages. These packages will be available in three, five, six or eight speaker layouts and all will incorporate 1000-watts of RMS amplifier power to drive them. They will be packaged with everything needed for installation including integrated audio and power harnesses as well as all necessary hardware. Installation of the kits requires minimal vehicle modification, and each individual component installs in an average of 5-15 minutes. Comprehensive installation videos will also be available for step-by step guided instruction showing the entire process, start to finish.
“Consumer expectations have risen and it’s not just about power and the number of speakers anymore. Consumers need to trust that the product sounds just as good with helmets on and the throttle pinned as it does while hanging around camp.” said Director of Sales and Marketing, Jason Fickas. “The level of thought and detail that has gone into these kits is unmatched in the industry both in performance and integration, and we’re anxious for our customers to see the results of combining the ground-up resources of MTX with a talented development team who just happen to be passionate enthusiasts as well.”
The new Can-Am X3 kits and components are slotted to start shipping in June and more details will follow soon. Be sure to follow us on social media or check out our website for more details as they develop.
