compromise products to satisfy the most discriminating enthusiasts.
Our global manufacturing facilities feature ISO9002 ratings (the highest
level of quality control awarded in the electronics manufacturing industry), fully

the best system you can with what you have.
Judge for yourself, and remember what it's all about, "If it's not
Bigger, Badder & Better, it's not Audiobahn." If audio is your life,

2-Way Tweeter Option
or
Hole to line up when
replacing plug or tweeter
When using one of the AS series 2-way speakers, the tweeter is fully removable. When
removing the tweeter, make sure to replace the chrome plug in its place. This is needed for
proper operation of the speaker. To remove the plug or tweeter grip your fingers on the
outside of the tweeter or plug and gently pull up with a tilting action slightly from side to
side and it will pop out. To replace the plug or tweeter, line up the holes at the bottom of
the plug or tweeter with the markings on the cup on the speaker.
+
-
When using the tweeter installed in the speaker or mounted separately, the blue wire with
the black line is - (negative) and the solid blue wire is + (positive).
To mount the tweeter, use the tweeter as a template to mark out and cut a hole the diameter of the tweeter then, insert the tweeter then, place the supplied ring on the back of the
tweeter and screw it on clockwise to tighten the tweeter into its mounted position.
3-Way Tweeter Option
Removal of the 3-Way tweeter is the same
as the 2-Way setup on page 5.

Warning / Disclaimer
WARNING
Investigate the layout of your automobile thoroughly before drilling or cutting any holes.
Take care when you work near gas tanks, gas lines, hydraulic lines, and electrical wiring.
Do not use the power amplifier unmounted. Attach the system securely to the automobile
to prevent damage, particularly in the event of an accident. Do not mount the system
so that the wire connections are unprotected or are subject to pinching or damage
from nearby objects.
The +12V DC power wire must be fused at the battery positive terminal connection.
Before making or breaking power connections at the system power terminals,
disconnect the +12V wire at the battery end. Confirm your radio/head unit and/or other
equiptment is turned off while connecting the input jacks and speaker terminals.
If you need to replace the power fuse, replace it only with a fuse identical to that
supplied with the system. Using a fuse of a different type or rating may result in damage to
this system which is not covered by the warranty.
