Speaker Systems. With proper installation, your new
speakers will deliver years of listening pleasure.
We strongly recommend that you have your
Enclosed Speaker Systems installed by your
authorized JL Audio dealer. The installation
professionals employed by your dealer have the
necessary tools and experience to properly install
this product. If you prefer to perform your own
installation, please read this and the instructions
included with your Mounting Fixtures (sold
separately) completely before beginning the process.
Installation of this product requires use of
JL Audio® Mounting Fixtures (sold separately).
No other method of installation should be
attempted. To avoid injury, installation
instructions included with the JL Audio®.
Mounting Fixtures MUST be followed precisely.
Do not attempt to remove the LEDs from from
the speakers. The LEDs are permanently fixed and
attempting to remove them will cause damage and
this damage will not be covered under warranty.
LED EQUIPPED MODELS
Illuminated speaker models are outfitted with
multi-color RGB LEDs to produce vibrant accent
lighting. Refer to the Wiring Harness Info tables
below for individual wire connection info.
Note: Wiring connections for each speaker are
required for LED functionality.
Adjustable control of RGB lighting may be
achieved with the use of an RGB lighting control-
ler (sold separately). Note: When selecting an
RGB lighting controller, make sure that the total
amperage demands of all LED circuits does not
exceed the output capacity of the controller.
Refer to the RGB LED Specifications table for the
individual current draw amounts and sum (add)
the total. For optimal performance, we recom-
mend using the JL Audio marine lighting controller

LED WIRING CONSIDERATIONS
• Do not connect to 24V electrical systems.
• Do not connect the speakers’ LED lights to the
vessel’s navigational lighting circuits.
• For short-circuit protection, we recommend
installing a fuse (not included) at EACH speaker’s
YELLOW (+12V) LED power connection lead.
Refer to the RGB LED Specifications table for
recommended fuse ratings.
• We recommend a minimum of 16AWG wire size
for each speaker’s LED connection circuits.
• In addition to the above, we recommend
activating the speakers’ LEDs thru a cabin/
interior lighting circuit that supplies +12V via an
existing switch. If an existing switched circuit
is not available, you may install a dedicated
toggle/rocker style switch that will supply
positive (+12V) power. Fuse this main +12V
connection according to the total amperage
demands of all LED circuits. Refer to the RGB
LED Specifications table for individual current
draw amounts and recommended fuse ratings.
