Wiring
5
Audiobahn recommends using at least 18-gauge wire with your new speaker system.
Thinner gauge wire may easily be severed and can cause damage to your system
should any bare wires come in contact with the vehicles chassis.
Makes sure that your audio system is off while installing and connecting your new Audiobahn Speakers. Failure to do so could result in damaging the speaker beyond repair.
This is not something that would be covered under the manufacturer warranty.
Be sure to route the wires to the speakers with the insulated terminal ending at the
speaker. This will insure a good contact with the speaker. If you need to shorten the
speaker lead, do so on the opposite end of the insulated terminals or the bare end.
Be sure the polarity is correct at all times. The speaker leads are color coded for negative and positive. Make sure that the leads connected to the positive terminal of your
amplifier or source unit is correctly connected to the positive terminal of the speaker.
To insure long-term reliability all bare wires and wire-to-wire connections should be
soldered and insulated with heat shrink or electricians tape. Under no circumstances
should you leave any bare wires uncovered, as this can and will lead to the failure of
your speakers and possibly other components.
When mounting in a door it is imperative to have the right amount of slack in the connecting wire as to not get crimped or torn when the door is opened or closed. Avoid
areas of the door jam that pinch. This will cause damage to the speaker and other components over long-term use.
Once the speaker wiring is complete, you can connect the opposite end to the amplifier
or source unit. Again, be sure to observe correct polarity. Solder and wrap all stripped
connections.

2. Remove one side of the protective backing of the tape and place it on
the back of the angled mounting piece
3. Locate the proper position that you would like to mount the
tweeter,then remove the protective backing on the sticky tape and

This will allow you to mount your tweeter flush with the panel and have the
tweeter look like it came from the dealer.
1. First find a location that you would like to mount the tweeter
2. Draw a small dot on the location of each tweeter and make sure that
both tweeters are mounted equally
3. Remove panel and double check that there is enough room behind the
panel for the tweeter (At least 1” depth and 1 1/2” diameter)
4. Drill a 1 1/2” hole for the supplied flush mount cup
5. insert the flush mount cup and make sure that it fits in to the hole that
you just have drilled
6. Use the supplied pressure ring behind the penal to finalized the mounting of the flush mount cup
7. Make sure when you insert the tweeter into the flush mount cup that you first put the “angled surface mount cup” on the tweeter. This will
allow you to create a 360 degree swivel mount on the tweeter

Troubleshooting
9
In the event that your Audiobahn speakers appear to require service we ask that you
first do a little troubleshooting to determine if the problem is actually the speaker, or a
problem located in a different part of the vehicle such as the amplifier, wiring, fusing or
possibly the source unit.
If your Audiobahn speakers have been installed professionally by an authorized Audiobahn Dealer, we recommend that you return to the dealer and demonstrate the problem
to a qualified installer or repair technician. If you installed the speaker yourself, use the
following guidelines to help find the problem.
1) No Sound
*Check the source or amplifier for power and be sure they are operating properly
*Check all signal connections
*Check for any wiring that may be shorting together or touching the metal chassis
*Check all ground connections
2) Distorted Sound at All Volumes
*Check for bad speaker connections
*Check wiring for correct polarity
3) Distorted Sound at High Volumes Only
*Check for loose mounting of the speaker
*Check the woofer cone for any damage or defects
*Inspect the speaker for debris in the cone or other obstructions
4) Poor Bass Response
*Check wiring for correct polarity
*Check for unstable or loose mounting surface
*Check bass & treble controls at the source unit or amplifier
5) Poor High Frequency Response
*Check wiring for correct polarity
Warning And Disclaimer
10
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 equipment 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.
