General
Your Wilson Electronics Sleek has been carefully engineered to significantly improve the performance
of your phone. Together with an outside antenna, the Sleek’s state-of-the-art circuitry is designed to
increase your phone’s signal to and from the cell tower. The Sleek reduces disconnects and dropouts
and increases data communication rates on 2G and 3G networks.
How it Works
With the phone in the cradle and while using a wireless Bluetooth headset (or hands free device) the
outside antenna collects the cell tower signal and sends it through the cable to the Sleek. The signal
is then boosted by the Sleek and sent to the phone. When the phone transmits, the signal is picked up
wirelessly and boosted by the Sleek and broadcasted back to the cell tower through the outside antenna.
NOTE: The cell phone must be placed in the cradle to work properly.

Vehicle Installation
1. Install the Outside Antenna
To receive the best cell signal, select a location for the outside antenna that is preferably in the center of
the vehicle’s roof, 12 inches away from any other antennas, free of obstructions, and at least 6 inches
from the rear or side windows or sunroof.
Mini-Magnet
Mount Antenna
Shown
The outside antenna must be installed vertically.
Antenna performance will be degraded if the
antenna is not vertical.
The antenna cable is small yet strong enough that it
may be shut in most vehicle doors without damaging
the cable.
Carefully
Pull Down
Door Seal
Run Cable
Under Seal
For a more professional-looking installation, run the
antenna cable under the door seal. Carefully pull
down the door seal. Run the cable under the seal
and push the seal back into place. This prevents
constant wear and tear on the cable as the door
opens and closes. The antenna cable is small
enough to easily tuck under the door seal or
plastic molding.
Contact Wilson Electronics Technical Support Team with any questions at 877-594-5766
or email: [email protected] Hours: 7 am to 6 pm MST.
RF Safety Warning: The “outside antenna” must be either a Wilson Electronics Magnet-Mount or
Mini-Magnet Mount antenna and requires at least an 8 inch separation distance from all persons.
Other outside antennas may be used with fixed building installations provided that (a) they are
located with at least a 30 inch separation distance from all persons, (b) their gain less cable loss
does not exceed 15 dBi, and (c) they are not operating in conjunction with any other antenna or
signal booster.
2. Attach the Mounting Bracket
A mounting bracket is provided for attaching the Sleek to your vehicle’s dash. Other options are also
available from Wilson Electronics.
Adhesive Bracket- Included in this package
1. Clean the area where the bracket is to be mounted with the
alcohol wipe provided. Allow to dry.
2.Peel the backing to expose the adhesive and press the
bracket onto the desired location in the vehicle. Note: be sure
the tab is positioned vertically, not horizontally.
3.Allow the adhesive to cure for 24 hours before you attach
the Sleek.
4.Once the cradle is attached, you can adjust the angle of the
adhesive bracket by applying gentle pressure to the top or
bottom of the Sleek. The bracket is designed to swivel when
the knurled nut is loosened for greater adjustability of the Sleek
viewing angle. To lock bracket into position, tighten large nut.
3. Attach the Sleek to the Bracket
Once you have installed the bracket in the desired location, and waited 24 hours for adhesive to cure, attach
the Sleek by aligning the rectangular hole on its back with the tab on the mount bracket, grasping the sides of
the Sleek, and sliding it downward approximately ¼ inch into place.
4. Attach the Outside Antenna cable to the Sleek
Attach the cable from the outside antenna to the antenna connector
on the Sleek. (See Figure 2)
Power up the Wilson Electronics Sleek
IMPORTANT: Make sure the outside antenna cable is connected
before powering up the Sleek.
Accessory port to power your phone, some adapters available
through Wilson Electronics at 866-294-1660. (See Figure 1)
Connect the mini-USB plug on the power cable to the Sleek’s mini
USB port located on the bottom of the Sleek and insert the adapter
into the vehicle power adapter of your vehicle. The Sleek may remain
on all the time. However, leaving the Sleek on in a vehicle when it is
not running can discharge the battery in a day or two.

Adjusting the Sleek Arms
Included with your Sleek are various sized arms, which will provide you with multiple options to
customize the Sleek to fit your phone.
1. Change arms
2. Reposition arms
Gently grab the arm and lift
upward until the arm slides
free from the Sleek.
Position the arm above a different slot on the Sleek (indicated by
the yellow in the drawing). Gently slide the arm down until the arm
is firmly in place.
NOTE: The cell phone must be placed in the Sleek to work properly. Use a Bluetooth or wired hands free device.
Understanding the Sleek Lights
Separation of Sleek and the outside antenna is very important. In a vehicle, the metal roof acts as
a barrier and helps shield the two antennas from each other, preventing oscillation (feedback).
Oscillation can occur when the roof mounted antenna is too close to the Sleek inside the vehicle. An
oscillation (or feedback) in the Sleek is similar to when a microphone is too close to a speaker in a
sound system, resulting in a loud whistle. An oscillation in the Sleek, if allowed to occur, can affect
nearby cell towers’ ability to handle calls.
If the light turns red, the Sleek has powered down to protect the cell tower from oscillation. The red
light indicates the outside roof mounted antenna needs to be moved farther from the Sleek. In a vehicle
installation, move the outside antenna on the roof of the car farther to the rear of the car, but at least 6
inches from the rear or side windows or sunroof. Remove power from the Sleek and reconnect power this resets the Sleek.
If the light is now green, the Sleek is working properly. If the red light is still on, move the outside
antenna farther away and repeat the process.
Green light is on : Sleek is operating properly
SYMPTOM: No light, or light always off
1.
Make sure that the power supply for the Sleek is functioning properly, by making
sure the light located on the power supply is lit.
2.
If the DC plug-in power supply is properly inserted, but the plug’s light doesn’t
come on, then check the 12 volt power from the car socket, and check the fuse
in the DC plug-in power supply.
SYMPTOM: Red light is on
If the light is red, the Sleek has powered down to protect the cell tower. See section above: Separation
of Sleek and the outside antenna is very important.
1.
Trouble Shooting
SYMPTOM: No increase in Bars
1.
Make sure that the antenna connector is tight.
2.
The cell phone must be placed in the Sleek cradle to amplify properly.

Building Installation
Installing a Wilson Electronics Outside Antenna in a Building
Follow the specific antenna instructions included with the outside antenna (sold separately except for
certain kits). These instructions assume that you are using a Wilson Electronics Mini-Magnet Mount
Antenna and the optional suction cup window bracket.
To receive the best signal, select a window on the side of your building where your outside signal is
the strongest.
Attach the suction cup bracket to the inside of a window so that the cable will reach
the location of the Sleek. Place the bracket as high on the window as possible for
best performance.
Once the bracket is in place, attach the magnet base of the antenna to the flat
surface of the bracket. Note: The antenna must be installed vertically. Signal
performance will be degraded if the antenna is not vertical.
Installing the Wilson Electronics Sleek Signal Booster in a Building
The Wilson Electronics Sleek may be placed in any convenient indoor location, such as a desk or
tabletop. The cell phone must be in the cradle and a Bluetooth® headset used for voice communications.
Attaching the Antenna
Once you have selected the location for the Sleek, run the cable from the outside antenna and attach it
to the SMA connector on the bottom of the Sleek.
Note: The Sleek and the outside antenna must have a minimum separation of 3 feet to prevent oscillation.
Note: The cell phone must be placed in the Sleek cradle to amplify properly.

Notes:
1. Nominal gain is the maximum gain at any frequency in the passband.
2. Nominal bandwidth is the difference between two frequencies that are adjacent to the passband where the amplification is 20 dB
lower than the passband amplification. One of the frequencies is lower than the passband and the other is higher.
3. The Manufacturer’s rated output power of this equipment is for single carrier operation. For situations when multiple carrier
signals are present, the rating would have to be reduced by 3.5 dB, especially where the output signal is re-radiated and can
cause interference to adjacent band users. This power reduction is to be by means of input power or gain reduction and not by
an attenuator at the output of the device.
4. The maximum power for 2 or more simultaneous signals will be reduced by 6 dB every time the number of signals is doubled.
