Polaris Rangers are among the most popular side-by-sides for work applications. Rockford Fosgate, a leader in motorsports audio systems, has just introduced three stunning roof-mount audio solutions that will transform these vehicles into a concert on wheels. All three options include speakers and amplification in custom enclosures. Let’s check them out!
Rockford Fosgate Polaris Ranger Audio Systems
Let’s start by looking at the Rockford Fosgate RNGR18-ROOF2M2. This audio system upgrade includes a replacement roof panel for 2018 and newer XP1000 full-size (three-seat) models. The new roof panel works with the tip-out windshield and Northstar Edition versions with power windows.
The new roof panel features four M2-8B 8-inch speakers, an M5-1500X5 1,500-watt five-channel amplifier, and the brand new 2.7-inch PMX-3 multimedia receiver. All the equipment comes pre-installed and wired, so your installer need only mount the roof using the provided hardware and run the included power wiring to the battery.
The roof also includes six rocker switches. These switches control the sound system, activate a backup camera or even provide power to an optional 30- to 40-inch LED light bar. There’s a plug outside the roof for the light bar.
Because the kit includes one of the fantastic M5-1500X5 five-channel amplifiers, it’s ready for upgrades. You can add the RNGR18-FWE under-seat enclosure and an M2D2-10IB subwoofer. The roof also features an integrated LED dome light and connections for power windows.
If you want to take the party everywhere, add the optional RNGR18-CAPM2 rear audio speaker cap. This external speaker pod replaces the blank pod that came with the RNGR18-ROOF2M2 kit and adds four M2-8HB horn-load M2-series 8-inch speakers and an M5-800X4 four-channel amplifier. All the power and audio connections plug into the RNGR18-ROOF2M2.
The RNGR18-CAPM2 has a few other tricks up its sleeve. The switch in the RNGR18-ROOF2M2 controls two LED work lights. The rear cap also has a backup camera called the MX-CAM. One of the rocker switches activates the camera, so the image appears on the PMX-3.
Four-door Polaris Ranger Subwoofer Upgrade
If you have a four-door, six-seat Ranger, the RNGR18-ROOF4M2 roof speaker system was designed just for you. This kit starts with the RNGR-ROOFM2 and adds a rear roof panel with four additional 8-inch M2-series M2-8H coaxial drivers and two 10-inch M2D2-10IB M2-Series subwoofers in a ported enclosure. There are power provisions for rear doors with power windows and an additional integrated LED rear dome light. You can upgrade the RNGR18-ROOF4M2 with the optional RNGRG18-CAPM2 if you want more sound. The under-seat subwoofer upgrade is also compatible with the four-door system.

Killer Sound and Amazing Looks
The new PMX-3 multimedia receiver can play all your favorite tunes from your smartphone or tune into your favorite genre-specific entertainment with an optional SiriusXM satellite radio tuner. When the MX-CAM is connected, you can see everything behind your side-by-side with the flick of a switch.
The M2 speakers and subwoofers in the Ranger Roof Audio systems all have integrated Color Optix LED lighting. The PMX-RGB Bluetooth lighting controller is built into the RNGR18-ROOF2M2 enclosure. Just download the RF Connect app on your Android or Apple smartphone, pair it, and you have complete control over the color of your new Rockford Fosgate speakers.
Rockford Fosgate knows you bought your Ranger to work and play, so all the new Roof Audio systems, the speakers and the electronics, feature their Element Ready products that are water-, dust-, dirt- and UV-resistant. Rip, jump or bash it – your Rockford Fosgate Ranger Audio system upgrades can take the abuse!
