    Thank you for choosing JL Audio VEX™ Enclosed
    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.
    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

    Alternatively, you may hard wire individual leads
    or a combination of leads to achieve up to seven
    different LED color assortments. Refer to the table
    below for the wire colors used to achieve specific
    LED colors.

    • Do not connect to 24V electrical systems.
    Do not connect the speakers’ LED lights to the
    vessels 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.
