A client from Chesterfield dropped into Extreme Audio to talk about a 2014 Polaris RZR audio system upgrade. He had already equipped the side-by-side with a few performance-related aftermarket accessories, including a snorkel and upgraded lighting. He wanted an audio system that would sound great and some accent lighting to personalize the look of the vehicle further. After inspecting the RZR 800, we proposed a sound system that would meet his expectations.
Polaris RZR Audio Upgrade
The sound system is somewhat simple in design but packs a punch. We started by installing a JL Audio MBT-CRX Bluetooth receiver in the dash of the RZR. This receiver includes volume control and track selection buttons that work with the client’s smartphone to serve as the system source unit. The unit used A2DP to stream audio and the Bluetooth AVRCP profile to handle volume and track selection functions.
From there, we installed a JL Audio MX280/4 four-channel amp in the vehicle. We configured the amp in a two-channel mode to drive a pair of JL Audio VeX PS650-VEX-SG-TMB-LDB compact speaker enclosures. The VeX enclosures are mounted to the roll cage just behind the driver’s and passenger’s heads. The pods include blue LED lighting behind the front grille.
Off-Road Accent Lighting
While we were in the dash, we installed four halo-style illuminated control switches for the new and existing lighting. We added a blue rock light kit to the fenders of the RZR 800 and a strip of blue LEDs in the front grille. As you can see from the photos, the blue lighting is dramatic and not only looks great but matches the new accessories in the interior of the vehicle.
As always, our installation team concealed all the wiring for the lights to give the side-by-side a neat and tidy look. This same treatment applies to the amplifier and speaker installation as well.

It took us a few days to complete the installation of this Polaris RZR audio system and the lighting accessories. When the client returned to Extreme Audio, he was thrilled with the work we had done. The stereo sounds great, and the lighting looks amazing!
