A powersports client from Lake City recently came to Pinnacle Autosound looking for a Yamaha YXZ Stereo system. We have worked on a number of side-by-sides so we had a great idea of what would get his rocking.
Rockford Fosgate Radio Provides Lots of Choices
The start of the system was the Rockford Fosgate PMX2 Radio. This radio is purpose-built for the powersports market. It is designed to hold up to the most abusive conditions. As you can tell from the pictures, this side-by-side is no trailer queen, so we knew this was the perfect radio. The client now has almost unlimited audio sources when paired via Bluetooth to his smartphone.
Rugged, Efficient Power by JL Audio
Adding audio power to powersports vehicles can sometimes be a challenge. There are a number of obstacles that aren’t found in regular cars or trucks. The first hurdle is size. There is very little space available in the normal side-by-side. Another concern is the limited charging amperage of the side-by-side charging system. Taking these things into account, we chose the JL Audio MX280/4 amplifier. As you can see, it was small enough to fit in the glove box. The glove box doesn’t provide a waterproof seal, but that was no concern for us, as the JL Audio amplifier is built to withstand the elements.
Yamaha YXZ Stereo Speakers
The final step for the Yamaha YXZ stereo system was to add some great sounding speakers. We started by adding a Wet Sounds Core 10 speaker bar. This is a very low-profile housing that holds a number of smaller speakers. We used two of the JL Audio amplifier channels to power the speaker bar. To fill in the bass that the system needed we used a Bazooka 10″ subwoofer. The tube system was designed for marine audio use, so we knew it would hold up well under the extremes this Yamaha YXZ would see.
