Boston Acoustics Subwoofer System
You have purchased the highest quality subwoofer the industry has to offer. Installed correctly, Boston Acoustics subwoofer systems will deliver unprecedented performance for many years to come.
WARNING: This manual explains only the basic installation of the subwoofer
The placement of the enclosure is one of the most important factors concerning installation. As each vehicle’s interior acoustics is different, experimentation is the key to optimizing performance.
Installation in a sedan
Provide as clear a path as possible by venting through a folded down armrest, or venting through the rear deck. Keep any restrictive material such as wood, hard plastic or metal from directly blocking the driver or radiator. If installing near the trunk lid, check for clearance with the trunk opened and closed. Check for the position of the trunk springs or torsion bars as their position changes with the position of the trunk lid.
Installation in a hatchback or sport utility vehicle
Typically, installing subwoofer enclosures in a rear corner yields the maximum output. However, every vehicle is different, so experimentation is the key to optimum performance.
WARNING: Make sure the enclosure is securely mounted in such a way as to not shift or fly forward in the event of an accident or sudden stop. If you are unsure of how to secure the enclosure, we strongly recommend you consult your Boston Acoustics dealer about professional installation.
Generator Subwoofer systems present a nominal 4 ohm impedance. Check your amplifier’s owners manual for bridging instructions and impedance restrictions.
Once the system is installed, play a musical selection with an active bass line. Experiment with the subwoofer’s phasing relative to the rest of the system by reversing the input leads on the enclosure (+ to +, and – to
