Hoppe Industries Releases Audio Shade for Can-Am Defender MAX UTVs

TROUP—Powersports accessory manufacturer Hoppe Industries has announced the newest addition to its off-road product offerings: The Audio Shade UTV stereo top, now available for Can-Am® Defender MAX models.

Following the Audio Shade for the Maverick X3 and the Audio Mini for Defender models, this newest Audio Shade marks the company’s third product for Can-Am® models. However, this Audio Shade also offers a new experience for off-road audiophiles.

“In the spirit of the ridiculous year that is 2020, we wanted to create a next-level product,” said Hoppe’s J.D. Vey. “On this model, we have a new option for two 10-inch subs. It’s amazing. It’s hard to listen to it and not have a smile on your face.”

In line with all of Hoppe’s off-road products, the new Audio Shade features the complete package of Kicker® audio components, Hoppe’s signature build quality, and compatibility with all two-row Defender MAX models—2017 to current.

“It integrates really well,” said Vey. “It fits with factory doors, tilt-out windshield and wiper, back glass, and your other OEM components.” Customers can look forward to a streamlined installation with a simple harness designed for a true plug-and-play experience.

Customers can choose between either four or eight 6.5-inch Kicker® PS-Series speakers for this Audio Shade. Additionally, customers can upgrade with a 10-inch Kicker® CompRT subwoofer with either a four- or eight-speaker package, or two subwoofers with an eight-speaker package.

Hoppe continues to expand both its Audio Shade and Audio Mini lines for other popular UTVs in the market. Development for the single-row Can-Am® Defender and the Kawasaki® Mule Pro are currently underway. Release news will be published on Hoppe’s website and across social media so customers should follow online to get the latest from the company.

The Hoppe Audio Shade for Can-Am® Defender MAX models is now available for purchase starting at $3,750 through Hoppe online, Authorized Motor Trike Dealers, Parts Unlimited Dealers, and Western Power Sports Dealers.
