Using grant22's great idea of the Fusion install in this thread http://www.rzrforums.net/lighting-stereo-electrical/33949-my-new-fusion-stereo.html I decided to pretty much copy his install. I found the newer version of the Fusion head unit on ebay and was able to get it for $225 which I thought was a pretty good deal. It really pushes the two 6 inch speakers in the polaris pods. A lot louder than my last setup of just the amp straight to the iPod.
And another good thing I found out last night is that my iPhone 4 works great in the unit. It reads the album and artist lists and everything. I was very impressed with the final product. The darker features of the newer model looks awesome with the LE.

Here you go. The speakers are not marine grade speakers because I didn't want white and they don't sound that great. The speakers I used have a plastic cone so they are some what water resistant. They are loud enough for my riding.

The pods are from Polaris. I was going to get the ones from SSV but you have to take out the glove box to use theirs and I kind of like the hard glove box.

If you wanted to run a sub I am sure you can, but for just two and maybe four little speakers the deck has enough power. I wouldnt get one for this set up but if you already had one why not hook it up!

A little late now but JBL has a marine certified line that is all black.
That would be a better option, but I do not think that a Marine speaker even sounds close to a normal car speaker. If you are not going to totally submerge it I don't see what the big deal is. But I am not a speaker guy. I just know that marine stuff I have heard sounds kind of muffled.

I have 2 6x9 marine jbl's mounted behind my head and they sound awesome. They are dual purpose I got them at best buy. The sane ones you put in your car but certified marine. Their entire line is also. Subs. Components. Amps. All cheap price too.

I have Rockford Fosgate 8" marine speakers on my toyhauler. They are some of the best sounding speakers I have had. Around 350$.

I am not sure of the part number. I already threw away the box. I just went to my local Polaris dealer and they had them in stock for the 2011's.

Just an update... I used the system formthe first time last weekend. Went to Moab and the system worked great. I used my iPhone 4 and the unit even charged it while playing music which helped out because I was using the phone as a gps too. So far so good with this set up. I have really
Liked it so far.

UPDATE - After only using the FUSION head unit 3-4 times last fall it no longer works. As stated in other posts it either shorts or a connection can be lost very easy. The vendor recommends a power regulator. I have followed power all the way in the unit but it will not turn on. It was recommended in another post that you have to turn off the unit before you turn off the RZR. Who can remember to do that every time?

Lame...on to find another head unit. And recommendations other than the typical Marine deck?
