Before You Install

We understand that automotive audio equipment installations can be troublesome at times, even to the most experienced of installation technicians. If you are not confi dent working with electrical wiring, removing and reinstalling interior panels, carpeting, dashboards or other components of your vehicle, please call our TOLL-FREE help line 1-800-445-1797 and our in-house technical service team will answer your installation questions.

Before installing these speakers, check the vehicle’s manual for locations of important vehicle components such as air bags, CO2 systems, fuel systems,

& electrical systems installed in the vehicle. Accidental deployment of air bags may result in serious injury.



If you are installing the RS460 speakers to upgrade/replace your existing speakers, remove the existing speakers from your vehicle, disconnect the speaker wires and mark the polarity. Place the RS460 speakers in the location you selected in your vehicle and connect the existing speaker wires. Make sure to keep the polarity of the speakers and wires correct (positive wire to positive speaker terminal and negative or ground wire to negative terminal)

Speaker Depth

2 5 /


" or 6 1 /


cm Before you install your speakers you must make sure you have enough depth/space behind the mounting surface.

You do not want the back of the speaker magnet to touch any part of your vehicle, or interfere with the operation or function of any component in your vehicle. (ie. windows or trunk lid)

Before mounting the speakers in a precut hole, use the template to check that the holes for the speaker and the screws will line up correctly.


You should only mount your speakers in factory precut holes. We

DO NOT recommend that you cut holes for mounting the speakers. If there are no factory precut holes consider having the speakers professionally installed.

1. Connect the speaker wires to the speaker. Maintain polarity by connecting the positive wire to the positive speaker terminal, and the negative wire to negative speaker terminal.

3. Screw the speaker into

place with screws (provided).

Speaker wires with female disconnects on one end are recommended. When connecting the speaker wires to your speakers in a new installation, you should follow the wiring instructions from your audio system’s manufacturer.

Attach the quick disconnect connectors to the speaker terminals as shown. Maintain proper polarity by attaching the Positive

Wire( + ) to Positive Terminal( + ) and the Negative Wire(-) to Negative Terminal(-).

For most systems the positive wire attaches to the positive speaker terminal and the negative wire attaches to the negative terminal.

Maintain proper polarity by attaching the

Positive Wire(+) to Positive Terminal(+) and the Negative Wire(-) to Negative Terminal(-)

Frequently Asked Questions

What if there is no sound?

1. Your stereo may have a blown fuse. Replace fuse with the same amperage and style.

2. You may have improper wiring. Refer to the wiring guide that came with your stereo/ amplifi er. Check all wires for a secure connection.

What if the sound volume is low?

Your stereo may not have enough power, you may have to install an amplifi er to drive the speakers

Why do I have a whining noise coming from the speakers?

You may have poor fi ltering of your alternator. If that is the case then you may need to add an alternator fi lter to the power lead.

Why do I have odd sounding noises coming from the speakers?

You may have corroded battery terminals and/or a weak battery. If the terminals on the battery are corroded clean them, then check the sound. If the sound system is still making noises check battery strength. If it is low, recharge or replace the battery.

Why does the speaker have sound coming from one channel only?

First make sure the balance control is set correctly. If the balance is set correctly your stereo may be defective or the speaker may be defective. To troubleshoot this problem you MUST change both positive and negative leads of each channel with the positive and negative leads of the opposite channel, if the same speaker has no sound then the speaker is no good, if the opposite speaker has no sound then your stereo may be defective.
