SPEAKER TOWER INSTALLATION

  1. Unpack and disassemble the clamps from the speaker. Make sure you account for all hardware when removing it from the clamps. There are lock washers that must be re-installed on the clamp.
  2. Determine the location of the speaker.
  3. Determine the correct rubber clamp adapters that are needed for your application.
  4. The rubber adapters will need to be cut to length, so they fit the enclosure and clamp.
  5. After the rubber clamp has been cut, remove the white protective layer and stick it to the clamp and enclosure.
  6. Place the speaker on the tower and have the top clamp ready to place on top.
  7. Screw the two bolts evenly, until snug. Once the position is verified, tighten the bolts ato nother half-turn. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN.
  8. The speaker accepts up to 16 GA wires, it is recommended you use a high-quality marine-grade speaker cable for your installation.

BT MODULE INSTALLATION

MOUNTING (BT Module BTRC-R)
To mount the unit, you will need to find a flat surface with adequate clearance behind it that provides enough clearance for the unit and all its necessary wiring.

  1. Once you have determined a mounting location, you will need to cut a circular hole 2.87″ (73 mm) in diameter.
  2. After the hole is cut, remove the nut ring unscrewing it from the unit, then slide the unit and wiring through the hole.
  3. Take the nut ring and screw it back on. Tighten down with your hand, DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN.
  4. Plug in all wiring harnesses and cables. Refer to the wiring diagram to make the connections.

AMPLIFIER INSTALLATION

Amplifiers are generally mounted in closed compartments of the vehicle or watercraft. Select a location that will provide adequate ventilation for the amplifier. Avoid mounting the amplifier in exposed areas. Secure the amplifier with the screws provided. Before securing the amplifier, inspect the mounting location carefully to ensure that you do not drill into or damage any electrical, hydraulic, fluid, or fuel lines.

  1. Before you start, disconnect the negative cable from the battery, and tape up the end so it is isolated from the battery.
  2. Run an appropriate gauge wire from the battery to the amplifier. Plan this part of the installation carefully. this cable will carry a very high current. If it is short to the body and it is not properly fused, it could catch fire.
  3. Connect the power wire to the battery using a fuse capable ofthe total current load of all amplifiers connected. Wait until the end to locate the fuse as close as possible to the battery.
  4. Find the closest clear metal area to the amp for a ground. sand, grind, or scrape all paint and undercoating from the body and screw the ground securely in place. In some vehicles or boats, the ground wire must go directly to the battery, use a proper size and color wire to identify it as a ground wire, and avoid mixing it with the positive wire.
  5. Run the speaker wire to the speakers. It is advised that you leave some extra wire at this point. You can fix it later. This amplifier is a multi-channel amplifier design, meaning it has more than one channel of speaker outputs. It is equipped with a harness over-mold. Connect this carefully and neatly; strip your wire back and twist the exposed leads and use an insulated waterproof marine butt connector. If the wires ever contact each other the amplifier will go into protection mode.
  6. Connect the speaker wires to the amplifier and speakers (make sure the amp is off first). Make sure the polarity (+) and (-) are correct.
  7. Connect the remote wire and the RCA audio signal from the BT Receiver to the amplifier.
  8. If you haven’t done so already, mount the amplifier now.
  9. Now is a good time to turn on the am for the first time. This MP.4A amplifier already comes with all the factory settings, it is ready to enjoy with your new speaker system.
