Placing the System
1. Mount the subwoofer enclosure in either the Rear Cargo Area (for Vans, SUVs and Hatchbacks) or in the trunk
(for sedans).
2. Mount the tweeters on the vehicle interior, high up for maximum sound and facing forward for optimum usage.
Important Installation Warnings
1. NEVER attempt to install this system in the area above the vehicle fuel tank. Drilling mounting holes could pierce
the fuel tank.
2. ALWAYS check under the area you select for installation, for wires or other obstructions.
3. ALWAYS make sure that you mount the subwoofer so the control panel is accessible to facilitate adjustments.
4. NEVER try to extend the length of the cables supplied with your system. The High Level Input/Output cable from
the speaker enclosure and the four RCA jacked extension cables are 15 feet long. DO NOT exceed this length in
your installation.
5. CAREFULLY plan the routing of your wires from the rear deck area to the dashboard and/or satellite tweeters,
keeping in mind the length of the available cables.
6. CHECK to make sure your chosen installation place does not interfere with the removal of your spare tire.
7. REMEMBER that failure to properly install the subwoofer enclosure may affect sound quality.
Follow the installation instructions for best results.

INSTALLATION
SUB-WOOFER ENCLOSURE
The SU-101 sub-woofer enclosure is designed for horizontal (flat) mounting. It must never be mounted upside-down
or on either of it's sides. The most convenient area for enclosure installation is within the trunk of cars, such as sedans,
or on the rear cargo area of vans and SUVs. It is also possible to mount the unit behind the front seat area of utility and
pick-up trucks if space allows.
The following procedure outlines the basic installation criteria for the enclosure.
1. On a flat surface, place the enclosure upside down and determine the position of each of the four mounting
brackets; each should be positioned in from each corner approximately 2 inches.

Attach each bracket using four of the 5mm x 25 self-tapping screws supplied.
NOTE: Make sure to orient each bracket so the tab contacts the side of the unit. This will prevent the bracket from
shifting during vehicle movement, sudden stops, etc.

Secure the enclosure to the surface (trunk or deck ) of the vehicle in the desired position. If desired, a mounting platform
of 3/4" plywood or other material could be used to compensate for uneven surfaces within the vehicle; the enclosure
could then be mounted to this surface.
Center the enclosure either on the vehicle surface or on the mounting platform and secure the unit using the remaining
four 5mm x 25 self-tapping screws through the bracket holes.
Proceed to the wiring diagram on page 8 of this manual.

SATELLITE
TWEETER
SATELLITE TWEETERS CONFIGURATION:
Normally, the satellite tweeter each is supplied with the bracket
and lanyard wire attached as shown in the drawing to the right. If the
speaker is not assembled as shown, assemble the swivel bracket
and lanyard to the speaker as illustrated. The bracket, lanyard and
screws are packed with each speaker.
SATELLITE TWEETERS
The two satellite tweeters supplied with the system are intended
for mounting inside the vehicle interior; they can be mounted
several different ways.
1. Mounting the Speaker to the Rear Wall:
The satellite tweeter can be mounted to the interior rear wall
on each side of the vehicle, aft of the rear window. Suggested
locations are the clothes hangar clip and/or the assist
handle. To accomplish this, proceed as follows:
a. Attach one end of a stepped metal bracket to each
speaker bracket as shown using an M5 x 10 mm screw.
b. Loosen the assist handle or clothes hangar clip at the
desired mounting location.
c. Attach the other end of the stepped bracket to the desired mounting location using the existing factory hardware. The speaker lanyard should be securely attached
to the other available factory hole locations using the
existing factory hardware.
d. Orient the speaker (facing front) as desired and tighten
the speaker bracket setscrew to maintain this position.

2. Mounting the Speaker over the Rear Molding:
Thesatellite tweeter can be mounted over the edge of the
molding that runs along the interior rear wall on each side of
the vehicle. To accomplish this, proceed as follows:
a. Attach a U-channel bracket to each speaker bracket
using an M5 x 10 mm screw; the screw can be
tightened by extending the screwdriver through the large
access hole in the U-channel bracket as shown.
b. Slip the U-channel bracket over the top edge of the molding; then slide the retaining plate in front of the molding
surface. Secure each assembly in place by threading
two M6 x 12 mm screws through the U-channel bracket
into the indents of the retaining plate, clamping the
retaining plate securely against the molding surface. The
speaker lanyard should be securely attached to the
other available factory hole locations using the existing
factory hardware.
c. Orient the speaker as desired and tighten the speaker
bracket setscrew to maintain this position.

WIRING INSTRUCTIONS
The power connections for the SU-101 enclosure are made via a screw- tightened terminal block. Simply loosen the screw
fully insert the wire or spade lug under the respective terminal screw, then tighten the screw to secure the lug.
1. Power Connection
The battery terminal (B+) must be connected directly to the positive terminal of the vehicle battery to provide an
adequate voltage source and minimize noise. Connecting the battery terminal lead to any other point (such as the fuse
block) will not power-up the SU-101. Use only the Yellow wire supplied for this purpose. Connect this lead to the
battery terminal after all other wiring is completed.
2. Ground Connection
The ground terminal (GND) terminal connection is also critical for correct operation of the SU-101. Use only the
supplied Black wire with spade lugs for this purpose, and connect it between the ground terminal (GND) of the
enclosure and a metal part of the vehicle close to the mounting location. This wire should be as short as possible
and any paint or rust at the grounding point should be scraped away to provide a clean metal surface to which the
end of the ground wire can be screwed or bolted.
3. Remote Turn-On Connection
The SU-101 is turned on by applying +12 volts to the remote turn-on terminal (REM). The supplied Blue wire with
spade lugs should be attached between this terminal and the "Auto-Antenna" lead from the car stereo which will
provide +12 volts only when the car stereo is turned on. If the car stereo does not provide an Auto-Antenna lead,
the remote turn-on lead may be wired to an "Accessory" or "Radio" terminal in the car's fuse block. This will turn
the amplifier on and off with the ignition key, regardless of whether the car stereo is on or off.
4. Speaker Connections
Wire the satellite speakers to the "Speaker Output" terminals as per the Output Wiring Diagram using the supplied
input/output extension cable assemblies. When mating the wiring to the speakers, pay careful attention to the
polarity of the speaker leads, and make certain they correspond to the polarity of the corresponding terminals on
the highlevel input/output 10-pin adapter harness. DO NOT ground any speaker leads to the chassis of the
vehicle.
5.
Input Connections
The sub-woofer enclosure features both high and low-level input capability. Use either the low-level or high-level
inputs, not both. If low-level outputs are provided from the car stereo, it is recommended that the low-level inputs
be used for lowest distortion and best performance. Use good quality shielded audio cables with RCA plugs (not
supplied) at both ends to connect the stereo to the sub-woofer enclosure L and R low-level input jacks; keep the
cable lengths to a minimum to avoid noise.
If the car stereo does not provide low-level outputs, the sub-woofer may be connected via the speaker (high-level)
outputs from the stereo. Wire the speaker leads from the car stereo to the supplied 10-pin adapter harness
using the supplied RCA tip-jack cable assemblies as shown in the diagram (shielded cable is not required
for this application), and plug the harness connector into the mating High-Level Input connector on the enclosure.
Carefully mate and insulate all wire connections.
CAUTION: Use either the low-level or the high-level inputs on the enclosure. DO NOT use both input levels at
the same time.
