J&M BT-03 Series Helmet Headset Installation Instructions
WARNING! Helmet speakers may not be legal in all jurisdictions. Check your local laws BEFORE using this product. J & M Corporation cannot control the circumstances surrounding the sale of this equipment, the
quality of installation, or the specific helmet into which this equipment is installed. Accordingly, J & M Corporation makes no warranties, expressed or implied, related thereto. A helmet with this equipment installed
may not protect the user from injury. The user assumes all liability in conjunction with accidents, injuries or losses of any kind arising out of the use of this product. Additionally, this product should not be used in
any way that would impair the user’s ability to hear traffic or other noises. Accordingly, the volume should be kept low or off, depending upon the circumstances.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Modern day helmets can present special challenges
for wireless headset installation. If you do not feel you are up to the task,
you may send your “un-modified” helmet to our factory in Tucson and we
will perform the installation for a nominal fee. (Please call first to ensure
that we are able to install a headset into your particular brand/model of
helmet.)
Installation into most Modular Flip-Up and Open-Face
Style Helmets
1. Most modular flip-up and/or open-face style helmets have cheek pads
that can be removed. Carefully do so at this time, paying special attention not to break or damage any of the polystyrene parts. (It is important to have the helmet fit and feel the same after the speakers are
mounted as it did before the headset was installed.)
2. Using a headset speaker as a guide, mark the circular pieces of styrene
to be removed from the back of the ear area of the nose section or the
cheek pad. See Figure 3. With an Exacto® knife, cut a hole slightly
Figure

5
smaller than the speaker so that the speaker will “press fit” into the
hole without damaging the styrene. An airtight seal is necessary to
preserve bass response as the sound pressure from the back of the
speaker housing should not be allowed to mix with the sound pressure
from the front. Also, be careful not to cut or damage the fabric lining..
3. Position the boom microphone on the left in side of the helmet so that
the microphone lines up with the wearer’s mouth. Then remove the
backing from the tape on the pre-gummed mounting square and press
it into place inside the helmet. (Note: this area should be cleaned with
rubbing alcohol prior to sticking the microphone in place.)
4. Slide the mounting clamp into the proper position on the left bottom
edge of the helmet, peel the backing off the double-sided tape, press
the clamp-on mounting plate assembly firmly into place, then Install the
BT-03 module on to the mounting-plate. See Figure 4.
5. Using the enclosed wooden tool, carefully push the speaker wires into
the gap between the helmet liner and shell. See Figure 5.

Installation into Full-Coverage Style
Helmet
1. Most full coverage-style helmets have cheek
pads or a complete nose section that can be
removed. Carefully do so at this time, paying
special attention so as not to break or damage
any of the polystyrene parts.
Figure

2. Using a headset speaker as a guide, mark
the circular pieces of styrene to be removed
from the back of the ear area of the nose section or the cheek pad. See Figure 1. With an
Exacto® knife, cut a hole slightly smaller than
the speaker so that the speaker will “press fit”
into the hole without damaging the styrene.
An airtight seal is necessary to preserve bass
response as the sound pressure from the back
of the speaker housing should not be allowed
to mix with the sound pressure from the front.
Also, be careful not to cut or damage the fabric
lining
3. Locate an area in the nose section just to the
left of the center to mount the microphone.
See Figures 3 & 4. Make sure that this
placement will not interfere with any venting
mechanisms or other parts of the helmet upon
re-installation of the nose section.
Figure

Figure

Using an Exacto® Knife, cut out a hole of
sufficient size to allow the microphone to be
mounted through the nose section and be
pressed against the inside shell. See Figure 3.
Insert the microphone cartridge through the
hole from the back side, Install the rubber boot
and push the mike back into the hole from the
front side
4. Place the speakers into the cheek pads. See
Figure 5.
5. Clean the inside of the helmet shell where
the speakers will be positioned with a cloth
dampened with alcohol. Peel the backing from
each supplied Velcro pad and press it into the
proper position for the speakers to contact
when the helmet is re-assembled.
Figure

6. Reinstall the nose section and/or cheek pads.
Push the speakers firmly against the Velcro®
pads.
7. Slide the mounting clamp into the proper position on the left bottom edge of the helmet,
peel the backing off the double-sided tape,
press the clamp-on mounting plate assembly
firmly into place, then Install the BT-03 module
on to the mounting-plate. See Figures 6 & 7.

the wires into the gap between the helmet
liner and shell. See Figures 6.
