    Polaris Stereo Kit Install with photos

    INITIAL INFORMATION: I installed the Polaris Stereo Kit p/n 2879248 on my 2014 Polaris Crew 900.

    PACKAGING: The stereo kit arrived in undamaged condition and all of the items listed in the kit contents on the instruction
    sheet were included.

    INSTALLATION: I started out by reading through the directions. Then I proceeded by placing my vehicle in Park and removing the key.

    Next I removed the dash cap by prying the four (4) plastic push pins along the front edge of the dash cap up with a small screwdriver and then removing them. The dash cap then just lifts off.



    Next I removed the stock dash control panel by removing the two bottom screws. Make sure you save the screws for your new stereo console panel. (see photo below of old control panel that was removed)



    Now I removed the switches from the old panel and installed them into the new stereo control panel. Then I inserted the new panel into the dash and secured it using the two (2) screws I saved earlier.



    Now from the front of the vehicle I reached down into the dash cavity and plugged in the USB and auxiliary plugs into the back of the auxiliary port. Now I plugged the connectors from the main wire harness back into the corresponding switches removed earlier. I matched the terminals on the back of the switches with wires coming out of the back of the connector.



    I routed the radio wire harness on top of the stamping along the main harness and into the holes in the frame cross member. Then I plugged the main radio harness into the main radio connector. (the included instructions clearly show the wiring process)

    I ran a red and black cable to the battery and mounted a fuse box under the hood for power. The fuse block pictured below is a Blue Sea Systems 50525 ST Blade-6 circuits with a negative bus and cover.



    Then I removed the LH cup holder to install the left speaker. I reached into the hole to locate the LH speaker wires. I connected the speaker harness to the main harness and then pushed the connector through the existing hole.





    I next installed the LH speaker inserting the speaker tabs into the existing holes behind the cup holder opening. This was a little difficult, but with patience it snapped into place. Then I installed three (3) screws to secure the speaker. I then followed the same procedure on the RH speaker.



    I next attached the antenna, by peeling off the backing and pressing it firmly on the bulkhead. I attached the powered antenna wires with the red to keyed power and the black to ground.



    Here is a photo of the completed stereo.




    Review: I have to say this stereo has some very nice sound. The radio itself picks up FM stations just as well as the one in my truck and car!

    Good write-up/install job Gary, turned out nice!
    You only mention installing the 2 front speakers, are there provisions for installing 2 rear speakers and if so, do you plan on doing so at a later time?

    Great write up, install looks great! I wish they had a nice clean OEM kit like that for the mid-size machines. I would gladly pay a little bit of a premium to have a nice clean factory looking install like that!

    How weather resistant are those speakers? I have to wonder if direct water exposure will be a problem.

    Is the auto antenna (blue wire on infinity prv250) the remote wire for the amp?

    Polaris Stereo Kit Install with photos

    Iam running the same stereo been in water over the speakers. I also pressure wash mine after every ride no issues yet. My father in law has had the same stereo for almost 2 yrs now he does not go as deep as me but definitely washes it whenever it gets dirty no issues with his either. For the money I am very pleased. No drilling or bulky box mounted above my head
