I was reading posts about adding rear speakers to the PMX-2 with the factory 23 pin connector and saw a bunch of wacky ideas so I decided to figure out where the pin outs for the rear speakers, remote and sub outputs were. I knew they existed but Polaris decided it wasn't important enough to add the wires so we could later add rear speakers or an amp.
Attached are pics of the pinouts (minus the sub outputs) for the factory 23 pin plug going into the PMX-2 and the harness I built to tie into the rear speaker harness. You will need to buy the connectors and know how to unlock the connector to add the pins. Fader and balance work perfectly and sound quality and dynamics has improved significantly.

So, after all this you have full control of fader, balance, etc. All the functions are in the PMX2 just not the wire harness?

Yes sir. All four speakers have fade and balance. I haven't tackled the sub output just yet but I'm sure its in there somewhere.

Humm, I have a PMX3 at home I was going to mount up so I can put in a rear sound bar / speakers, my rear sound bar is self powered and requires an output signal. Not sure I can use the rear speakers for it, but if I can that would save me $400 bucks. I need to do a little research now, I'll send that PMX 3 back and spend $400 on beer and treats for my riding partners!

I wonder if the pre-amp outs are there as well? If I could find them that would be a home-dang-run.

Guess what? Looks like they used Harley parts; Check this out, Metra 71-9600 on the head unit side and still looking but, metra LD-9600 for the UTV side, not every wire like the 71-9600, but they fit, only thing that has to be modified is the alignment rib trimmed off. As soon as the 714-9600 shows up I'll confirm, but it sure looks like it. Best buy has it for $10 bucks.
