6- x 9-Inch 2 Way Flush-Mount Speaker System
CHOOSING A LOCATION
For the best performance, install these
speakers on a solid, firm surface that
does not vibrate at high volume levels.
We recommend you mount the speakers in the door panels or the rear
deck.
Note: Cardboard or fiber panels are
not good mounting surfaces.
(illus showing suggested
mounting area.)
INSTALLING THE
SPEAKERS
1. Use the supplied template to mark
the speaker opening and the
mounting-screw hole locations.
2. Cut out the marked speaker opening in the mounting surface.
Note: Steel door panels and the
rear deck (behind the upholstery)
might already have large cut-out
areas for recessing the speaker.
3. Drill the
holes.

Caution: Be careful not to drill
into anything behind the mounting
surface.
As you are deciding on a location,
carefully inspect the area behind the
proposed mounting surface.
• There must be a clear unobstructed area of at least 3 inches
(76.2 mm) behind the panel.
• If it is a door location, check to be
sure the window, window mechanism, and window handle will
clear the speaker.
4. If necessary, route new speaker
wire from the autosound system to
the mounting area.
Cautions:
• Avoid routing speaker wires
near moving parts, sharp
edges, or where they will be
pinched or stepped on. You can
usually route them along the
channel beneath the vehicle’s
door facings.
Note: Make sure the window
opens and closes properly.

If you have a two-speaker system:
• If you selected door locations,
you might need to punch a
small hole in the door edge
(near the door hinges) to route
the wires into the door. Leave
enough slack wire to open the
door all the way.

with proper polarity)
5. Securely connect the positive (+)
and negative (–) stripped speaker
wire ends to the corresponding
speaker terminals.
If you have a four-speaker system (front and rear):
(illus - show the speaker
wires properly wrapped
around the speaker’s terminals.)
(illus showing wiring
diagram for connection to four speakers
with proper polarity)
Cautions:
• Improper phasing can cause
poor bass response. To ensure
proper phasing, you need to
match your autosound system’s positive (+) and negative
(–) speaker wires to the corresponding positive (+) and negative (–) speaker terminals.
6. Remove the grille from each
speaker’s mounting bracket to
expose the mounting holes.
7. Place the mounting bracket on the
speaker.
• Do not connect any of your
speaker terminals to chassis
ground. Use all four autosound
wires to connect your speakers
to your vehicle’s autosound system.

the bracket fits on

10. Firmly press the grille onto each
speaker’s mounting bracket.
8. Align each speaker’s mounting
holes and mounting bracket’s
holes with the drilled holes on the
mounting surface and thread a
supplied screw through each hole.
Note: You can use the supplied
adhesive putty tape to further
secure the grille to the mounting
bracket. Cut off and press a small
piece of putty into each of the four
slots
around the mounting
bracket’s surface.
9. Place one small and one large
washer and screw a nut onto the
mounting screw, then tighten all
screws until they are secure.
