Custom stereo systems for your Yamaha YXZ
Bolt-in Rockford Fosgate gear that fits your YXZ without modifications
In a nutshell: This article takes a look at Rockford Fosgate's custom audio systems for the Yamaha YXZ.
Yamaha's YXZ is to most side-by-side UTVs what the Ford Raptor is to most pickup trucks. There are plenty of UTVs out there that can haul firewood, but this one's made to haul ash – if you get what we're saying and we think that you do.
These rugged vehicles are made for pure off-road fun, whether you’re going down a trail or up a dune. Music's fun, too, so why not blast some tunes while you're having a blast in the great outdoors? These Rockford Fosgate receivers, speakers, amps, and subs are built tough, with marine-rated gear that can handle moisture and muck. They're designed to fit right into your YXZ and they'll sound as good as they look.
Rockford Fosgate rocks your Yamaha YXZ
With five packages to choose from, you can select the audio system that's right for the way you use your YXZ. Upgrade the radio you already have with the Rockford Fosgate PMX-2 receiver found in Stage 1 (and in the other four stages, too), or go all-out with the awesome array of speakers, subs, and amps in the Stage 5 package. We'll get to the packages in a bit, but first, let’s take a look at the audio gear Rockford Fosgate has put together.
The PMX-2 receiver is made for the outdoors
The Rockford Fosgate Punch PMX-2 (found in all five packages) packs a lot of features into a compact, water-resistant digital media receiver. This trail-ready stereo has built-in Bluetooth® connectivity, so you can stream music from your phone and crank up your favorites.
If you prefer to plug in, there’s an aux input, plus a USB input that will charge your phone while you’re playing music. And speaking of charges, the PMX-2 also has a low-voltage warning alert built-in, so you won’t accidentally drain your battery.
In addition to AM and FM radio, you can also tune into the weather band to stay up to date on current conditions — a handy feature to have when you’re in the middle of nowhere.
Bigger, better sound on the trail
Rockford Fosgate Prime RM1652B 6-1/2" speakers (Stage 2 and up) are tough enough for off-road and marine use, but they also sound terrific. The poly cone is treated to withstand moisture and sunlight, as is the 1" volcano dome tweeter in the grille. These full-range speakers give you the performance you expect in a package you won’t have to worry about when the going gets rough.
They’re really easy to install, too, thanks to the YXZ-specific speaker enclosures included in these kits. Made from a fiber-reinforced composite blend, they bolt right in using the factory mounting holes. No drilling needed!
For top-shelf sound, check out Stages 4 and 5. Stage 4 adds a pair of enclosed RM1652W-MB Prime roll bar speakers, which are marine-rated and really rock. The adjustable clamp rotates for perfect positioning. In Stage 5, you'll have four RM1652B speakers mounted in upper and lower front enclosures.
Bring on the bass
A 10" subwoofer? In an UTV? Absolutely! The Rockford Fosgate RM110D2B sub (found in Stages 3, 4, and 5) fits into select YXZ's with help from a direct-fit mounting kit that looks like a custom installation. The sub is marine-rated and ready for anything, while the bolt-on enclosure is made from a durable composite that blends right into the interior.
A rugged amp with plenty of power
A system like this requires serious power, and the upper stage packages will take care of your speakers, whether you go straight to Stage 4 or add tower speakers later. The marine-rated Power Series TM400X4ad will send 50 watts each to all four front speakers, plus 200 watts to your sub. The kit includes mounting plates and wiring for this tough, trail-ready 4-channel amp.
