MTX MUDBTRC

Crutchfield customer from Des Moines, IA on 4/30/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have a Harley Davidson 2013 Street Glide. I removed the temp gauge in the fairing and placed the MTX Bluetooth Controller in it's place. I had to make my own mounting bar to hold it into the location but that was simple and quick. Works well pairing with my smart phone and easy to use buttons even with the thickest cold weather riding gloves. Well worth the price.

Pros: easy to install, easy to use even with gloves, sound quality is good

Cons: button back lighting could be quite a bit brighter, impossible to see lights in sun but this is minor

Great addition

Gary from Oakdale,LA on 4/26/2016

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This was a great addition too my buggy. Sweet sound bought cheap speakers from sonic electronic and they did not hold up. I've pressure wash the Bluetooth and it still performs so I think j have a winner.

Pros: Great sound, very durable and easy to install

Cons: None so far.

Much higher sound quality than expected

Jamie from Florida on 12/7/2015

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have tried the less expensive cigarette lighter based bluetooth adaptors and they all sounded like crap. This product, however, has audiophile quality sound and great tactile feel. It installed easily and performs flawlessly.

Pros: Weatherproof, highest quality bluetooth audio, backlit

Cons: Bluetooth range is good but could be better. I believe it only allows one active bluetooth connection. As other reviewers have said, and AUX in port would be handy as well.

Great product, installed in my boat

Tom from Anaheim on 10/20/2015

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I installed this in my boat and am running it straight to an amp with no head unit. This product works great and can control stereo from phone or from the unit itself. Very user friendly and works from far away as well

Pros: Compact, strong signal, easy to insta

Cons: Could use an aux input if you don't want to use Bluetooth. So you can plug phone/ipod directly to it.

Features

Add-On Bluetooth Receiver & Remote Control: The MTX Audio MUDBTRC is a universal Bluetooth receiver & remote control that is designed to work with most Bluetooth enabled devices including iPhone and Android smartphones and tablets. This easy to install and use, all-in-one unit is capable of transforming your Bluetooth enabled mobile device into the center of your vehicle's audio system. Designed to mount a variety of vehicles and able to work with most amplifiers, the MUDBTRC is ideal for use in boats, ORV's, ATV's, motorcycles, side-by-sides, boats, cars, or trucks.

Bluetooth Music Streaming: The MUDBTRC Bluetooth receiver & remote allows you to stream music directly from your Bluetooth-enabled Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/tablet, and other Bluetooth compatible devices to your vehicle's existing stereo system. You can operate basic playback functions (such as Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track) from the MUDBTRC's push-button controls.

Aux Output: The MTX Audio MUDBTRC features a female minijack (3.5mm) audio output to connect to an Aux or analog audio input of your amplifier. You will need either a stereo minijack cable or a stereo minijack-to-RCA cable (sold separately).

Push-Button Controls: The MTX Bluetooth receiver & remote features push-button controls which allow you to power on/off the device, turn the volume up/down, and operate basic playback functions (like Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track) of your connected Bluetooth audio device.

Mounting Options: The MTX Audio MUDBTRC offers 3 mounting options - surface mount, flush mount, and spring clamp. The flush-mount bracket requires a cutout of 2.5625" and a mounting depth of approximately 1.4375".

Wiring Harness: The MUDBTRC can be used with practically any 12-volt battery. The Bluetooth remote/receiver has three wires in its wiring pigtail. The power wire (red) should be directly connected to the vehicles positive battery terminal, the ground wire (black) should be connected directly to the vehicle's chassis where paint has been removed or the negative terminal on the battery, and the accessory wire (blue) should be connected to the ignition wire on the vehicle.

Customer Q&A

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
motorcycle [ James  Jul 31, 2016 ]

9 questions already asked

Q
Does this unit has a plug that could be conectes to the factory radio in order to simplify it's installation for my Suzuki Grand Vitara 2009?
[ Dámaso  Sep 09, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
The unit has a Power, Ground, Remote turn on for an amplifier, and RCA connections. The unit does not have any factory plugs for OEM stereos.
[ J&M  Sep 17, 2018 ]
Q
Can I wire this to a simple stereo receiver I have in my bathroom using the RCA input to control it or does it need to just be a power amp to work?
[ Bob  Jan 10, 2018 ]
4 answers
A
It needs to be to some sort of amp because this unit is strictly a Bluetooth receiver/controller
[ JASON D  Jan 13, 2018 ]
A
It needs power from somewhere...mine is on my harley and draws from the battery
[ Eric  Jan 10, 2018 ]
A
This is not a receiver, it accepts Bluetooth or an input from a 3.5mm plug (I think). This unit then connects to an amp with RCA cables.
[ Lee  Jan 10, 2018 ]
A
You will have to get a adapter from 3.5mm plug to rca. It should work. It is just a Bluetooth receiver and controller.
[ Cris  Jan 10, 2018 ]
Q
can this be hooked up to 2 amps at once?
[ jones  May 08, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
It offers a single 3.5mm stereo audio output so, you would need a minijack to RCA cable and some RCA Y adapters to provide the audio to more than one amplifier.
[ Ryan  May 13, 2017 ]  Staff
Q
Does this product have any back lighting to be able to see it at night in my side by side?
[ JASON D  Dec 08, 2016 ]
2 answers
A
Yes, i own this and it works very well. It does have backlighting.
[ Jarrett  Dec 09, 2016 ]
A
Yes it does light up with backlighting once it's powered up.
[ Dustin  Dec 09, 2016 ]
Q
Is this product compatible with a JVC Head unit (KDR730BT)? I'm looking for a remote for said head unit without having to get a new head unit (if I can avoid it). thanks!
[ Nick  Apr 06, 2016 ]
1 answer
A
No. The MTX is designed to be a stand-alone device and connect directly to the inputs of an external amplifier. Your JVC came packaged with a wireless remote originally (RM-RK52). If you need a replacement, you may be able to get one from JVC': 800-252-5722 I hope that helps! My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=5
[ Ryan  Apr 11, 2016 ]  Staff
Q
Can this device be used with the aux input connection on the front of a 2013 Harley Street Glide?
[ James  Nov 22, 2015 ]
1 answer
A
Sure. It's designed to be a direct source input to an external amplifier but you can connect it to an auxiliary audio input on your stereo. The only drawback to this will be the two volume controls: one on the MTX and one on your stereo. So, you'll just have to balance these two settings to ensure proper performance. I hope that helps!
[ Ryan  Nov 27, 2015 ]  Staff
Q
IS THERE A PRODUCT SIMILAR TO THIS ONE THAT DOES THE BLUETOOTH AS WELL AS HAVE AN AUX INPUT TO CONNECT IPOD OR PHONE DIRECT?
[ TOM  Oct 06, 2015 ]
1 answer
A
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: The closest match that offers the functionality you require is the Dual MGH30BT marine receiver. In addition to Bluetooth, it has a rear-mounted USB for direct connection and control of an iOS device. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
[ Krissy  Oct 11, 2015 ]  Staff
Q
Was is the IPV Waterproof rating (3 or 6)?
[ Andrew  Jun 30, 2015 ]
1 answer
A
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: MTX has not provided information about the waterproof rating, however, I did notice on their website it lists the item as "weather-proof" rather than "water-proof". I can say that it will likely hold up as well as any marine amp. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
[ Krissy  Jul 05, 2015 ]  Staff
Q
What size bar is the mounting clamp for? i.e. 1", 3", etc.
[ Clint  Jun 24, 2015 ]
1 answer
A
two bar clamps. one is 7/8" and other is 1 1/8" They are thin metal so fairly flexible.
