Metra PowerSports to Debut New Micro- Amplifiers and Can Speakers with RGB Lights at the 2017 SEMA Show

Holly Hill, FL – October 27, 2017 – Metra Electronics is expanding the product line of their new brand, Metra PowerSports, by adding can speakers and micro-amplifiers, which will debut at the 2017 SEMA Show in Las Vegas from October 31 – November 3. Metra is launching more than a hundred new products at the show, but these speakers and amplifiers represent an all new category for the manufacturer. SEMA attendees can see these new products at Metra’s main booth #11639 in the North Hall or at booth #35227 in the South Hall, which will feature off-road, powersports and truck accessories. These products will also be showcased the same week at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, at booth #4191 inside the Sailfish Pavilion at the Broward County Convention Center.

Waterproof 6.5” Can Speakers with RGB Lights:

The new Metra PowerSports 6.5” Can Speakers with RGB Lights are designed for whatever the marine or off-road customer can throw at it. The UV protected, high temperature ABS provides a durable housing by employing a dual wall design. The waterproof speakers are IPX6 rated to handle water, dust and all the elements, while still delivering great sound performance. They are constructed from polypropylene and the tweeters are PEI (Polyetherimide). A passive 3” radiator offers a more robust sound by making these speakers more bass responsive. 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 Heise and Metra PowerSports RGB Controllers (MPS-RGBC- 4). The speakers offer four mounting size options for extra versatility, and can be rotated for optimal sound positioning. The speakers, part number MPS-65CSRGB, are sold as a pair with a one year warranty, under the Metra PowerSports brand.

Micro-Amplifiers for Powersports Applications

Metra PowerSports is also introducing two new micro-amplifiers that are designed for harsh environments. With an IPX6 rating, these compact amplifiers are designed to get wet and not miss a beat. There are two models; a 4-channel (MPS-AMP60X4) that outputs 60 watts per channel and a 2-channel (MPS-AMP100X2) that outputs 100 watts per channel. Both amplifiers are bridgeable to provide more flexibility
and designed to fit into smaller applications. The gain frequency is from .2 volts to 5 volts with a frequency range from 20 Hz to 20 KHz. The chipset technology is full range class D using IR control chips.

The input side of the amplifiers has an 8’ cable with an IP68 connector that is designed to plug directly into the Metra PowerSports Bluetooth Controller (MPS-BTK sold separately). For use without the MPS-BTK, 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.

RMS Power Output (MPS-AMP60X4):
60 Watts RMS x 4 Channels @ 4 ohms
