The one thing better than trail riding, sand slingin’, rock crawling, or just tearing it up on your side by side is to be doing those things while jammin’ to some good tunes! Shopping for a stereo isn’t always easy, for the serious music lover it’s important to go with a brand you can trust. MTX Audio has been manufacturing high-performance car, marine, home and street audio products for over 40 years and has innovated some of the standard audio ideas used today. With the growing popularity of side by sides and UTVs, it was only a matter of time before this leading audio company developed products specifically for this high demanding field and Side By Side Stuff would like to welcome MTX Audio into the UTV industry. MTX has made a commitment to provide outstanding products with extraordinary sound that you will be proud to own and we are very excited to bring them to our customers.

Dirt, sand, rain, snow – these products are made to handle conditions of any type of outdoor environment that includes protection from humidity, moisture and damaging UV rays. Whether you’re tricking out your Polaris Ranger or Can Am Maverick you’re going to want the best quality stereo; MTX Audio products offer high-performance audio with high-performance durability. They include stainless steel hardware to prevent rust, conformal coated circuit boards, covers that protect internal components from damage, as well as being held up to testing perimeters for durability that prove survival in the toughest conditions.
