Speaker Preparation/Installation
Please read entire manual before installation.
Before You Start
• Disconnect negative battery terminal. Consult a qualified technician for instructions.
• Use extreme caution when drilling holes to avoid damaging fuel lines, hydraulic lines
or existing wiring. • If additional wiring is required, we recommend that you run all wires prior to
mounting your speaker in place.
• Use the highest quality connectors for a reliable installation and to minimize signal
and power loss.
• Use caution before you drill or cut! Be careful not to cut or drill into gas tanks, fuel lines,
hydraulic lines, vacuum lines or electrical wiring.
• Avoid running wires over, near, or through sharp edged surfaces. We suggest you
also use rubber grommets to protect any wires routed through metal.
Mounting and Installation
• Determine where the speakers will be mounted. Ensure an area large enough for
the speaker to mount evenly. Be sure the mounting location is deep enough for the
speaker to fit.
• Using an appropriate tool, cut a 5.13" diameter mounting hole.
• Remove grille from speaker by inserting the release key into the locking tab slots
located at the top and bottom of the grille. Gently apply pressure towards the center
of the grille to release the locking tabs.
• Use the speaker as a template to mark the locations for the mounting screws. Drill
the mounting screw holes with a 1/8" pilot bit. Route speaker wires and connect to
speakers, observing speaker polarity.
• Install speaker into opening using supplied hardware and test for correct operation.
• Align the speaker grille locking tabs and snap grille into place.
