    All the parts i ordered finally arrived and installed. But the trunk speakers dont work. They adjusted the fade and the balance with no luck. They are ordering a new trunk and also calling polaris tomorrow to see if they missed something. is there anything i need to know that might help them troubleshoot?

    I don't think anyone has put a trunk on a Magnum yet?
    What color did you get?
    Do they make them in our paint colors?

    On the otger victory forum someone has. Yes. The magnum red is sunset red and is an exact match. The ness has a matching red....wouldnt be surprised if the black did too.

    I wonder if the magnum amp os only a two channel amp or if it is a 4 channel? I ask because the saddlebag audio comes with an amp.

    Standard cross country has a menu setting for turning on or off external speakers (aka rear speakers)
    anyone able to check their stereo menu for this setting?

    The setting for external speakers aren't specific to location speakers. Turning that off means it turns off all speaker output and outputs to bluetooth connected headsets only.

    I'm assuming you did plug in the plug and check for loose wires in both ends behind the left side panel right?

    What was the final outcome of no sound on the trunk? Did you need an amp to drive the rear?

    Yeah. Easiest way i found was to install a 4channel rf pbr 300x4 amp and run it in 2ch mode. Fade front to rear doesnt work. But thats not a big deal. If you want fade to work then buy a rear amp only and leave the front system intact.

    Trunk will not work with stock magnum set up. Vic intentionally removed the capability; because they do not condone use of trunk on a Magnum

    It does work Kevin it has already been done and you saw my Magnum with the passenger backrest on it.

    Not being a smart ass but what's the difference between a Magnum and a Cross Country Tour that has a 1" lowering kit?

    There is no difference, but their legal department is on task here, and they are covering their ass's.
    Interesting thing. I have 2 customers that moved their trunks to Magnums, and neither got output from the rear.

    completely different audio system, different forks, paint, and front wheel. :) being a smart ass.

    if it was a normal cross country audio system, it would have been easy. but the faux paus was when they changed it from a 4 channel to a 2 channel system.
    and p.hunt will have audio first and mine will follow next weekend. :)

    That's right Kevin they need the Magnum saddlebag amplifier or an aftermarket amp. I used an Oscilloscope and measured the outputs of the stock Magnum amplifier the front channeled stop making clean power at volume level 22 and is at 14.1volts of output. The rears only measure 480mv output at level 22 so it is only putting out a low level signal to the rear that needs to be amplified
