6.5” and 8” Can Speakers with RGB Lights: Rugged, UV-protected Can Speakers with RGB Lights feature a durable high-temperature ABS housing with a dual wall design. The speakers are constructed from polypropylene and the tweeters are PEI (Polyetherimide). The speakers are designed to handle water, dust and all the elements, while still delivering great sound performance, with an IP rating of IPX6 for both models. A 3” passive radiator provides extended bass response for great sound performance. The impedance is 4 ohms with a 6dB passive crossover, frequency response from 60Hz to 20 KHz and a sound pressure level of 90dB. As an added feature, the speakers include RGB lighting that can be connected to MPS-RGBC-4 controllers (sold separately). For versatile mounting options, they come with two mounting clamps with rubber inserts for four different sizes. The black powersports speakers have 1.5″, 1.75″, 1.875″ and 2″ clamps while the white marine speakers have 2”, 2.25″, 2.5, and 2.75″ sized clamps. The speakers can also be rotated and repositioned for optimal sound performance. Available in 6.5” or 8” sizes in white marine (MPS-65WCSRGB, MPS-8WCSRGB) or black powersports (MPS-65CSRGB, MPS-8CSRGB) options.

High-Power Class D Micro-Amplifiers: Metra PowerSports is also introducing three new IPX6 rated micro-amplifiers designed for harsh environments. The two, four and five channel amplifiers are bridgeable to provide more flexibility and have an impressive power rating. The full range class D circuit designs using IR controller/pre-driver chipset technology provides the best performance in their category and are not prone to channel crosstalk or FM interference. Waterproof connections and terminations are equally important for these powersports amplifiers. The input side of the amplifier has an 8’ cable with an IP68 connector that is designed to plug directly into the MPS-BTK1 Bluetooth Controller (sold separately). For use without the MPS-BTK1, the amplifiers come with a pigtail that allows the user to connect any radio or Bluetooth controller with an RCA output. The power cables are 8’ long with a waterproof fuse holder to reach any battery location, whether it be in a side-by-side, ATV, UTV, boat or motorcycle.

Rollbar Mounts To mount aftermarket horizontal lightbars, auxiliary lights or safety flags onto rollbars, Metra PowerSports is introducing three new mounts in 3”, 1 3/16” and 2” sizes; the MPS-C02, MPS-C03 and MPS-C04. These mounts are made from high-strength billet aluminum that will never rust and have a durable crinkle coat finish to withstand the harshest weather conditions. They come with rubber inserts that allow the clamp to be held steadfast while protecting the mounting surface. The mounts provide precision alignment with 360 degrees of custom adjustability and work with most LED lightbars that have 6mm/8mm mounting bolts. The diameter sizes offered fit most bull bars or roll cages on Rhino, Polaris RZR, Teryx, CAN-AM or Jeep applications.

Light Brackets for ATVs, UTVs and Off-road Applications Metra PowerSports is offering three new universal light brackets allowing for mounting aftermarket lightbars onto the bull bar, front bumper, hood, windshield or roll cage of off-road powersports applications. An installer-friendly design is engineered for a direct and easy bolt-on installation without any drilling, cutting or modifications. These brackets have high-carbon stamped steel material with a durable, weather-resistant black crinkle coat finish. Seven vehicle-specific light brackets are also being introduced with the same durable construction and crinkle powder coating. For ultimate performance, Heise LED Lightbars are recommended, but these brackets will work with a variety of aftermarket lighting brands.
