Installation Guide:

This Stealthbox is designed to mount between the front bucket seats, replacing the center console. It is not designed for installation in vehicles with bench seats.

Please read this installation guide thoroughly before beginning the project. It will guide you step by step through the process. This product requires professional installation skills and tools. We highly recommend that an authorized JL AUDIO dealer performs the installation.

It is absolutely vital that the Stealthbox be properly mounted to the vehicle according to these instructions. Failure to mount the enclosure properly will result in

inferior bass performance and potential danger in the event of a collision or sudden jolt to the vehicle.

STEP 1: Remove the storage bin from the front portion of the center console by gently prying it out. Save this piece for later use.

STEP 2: Remove the inner storage bin from the console by gently prying it out. Save this piece in the event that the original console is ever reinstalled.

STEP 3: Using a 10mm socket, remove the two bolts that hold the front console bracket to the floor.

STEP 5: Using a 10mm socket, remove the two bolts that hold the rear bracket to the floor. Remove the bracket from the vehicle.

STEP 6: Place the two supplied 4" X 4" wax squares, sticky side down, in the approximate locations of the Stealthbox mounting holes.

STEP 7: Thread both of the supplied 3/8" X 1 1/2" bolts fully into the threaded inserts in the bottom of the Stealthbox.

STEP 8: Place the Stealthbox into its mounting location.

Be sure the Stealthbox is in the same relative position as the original factory console.

STEP 10: Remove the Stealthbox from the vehicle. There should be clear impressions in the wax squares.

STEP 11: Remove the bolts from the Stealthbox.

Before drilling check under the vehicle for any loose wires, fuel lines or other hazards in the areas where holes are to be drilled.

STEP 12: Using the impressions in the wax squares as guides, drill a 1/2" diameter hole through the floor pan of the vehicle, using the impression in each wax square as a guide. Stop the drill immediately after penetrating the metal.

STEP 13: Remove the wax squares from the vehicle.

STEP 14: Cut 1" diameter holes in the carpet centered on the 1/2" diameter holes you drilled in STEP 13 to allow the threaded inserts in the Stealthbox to contact the metal floor pan.

STEP 15: Run speaker wires to the Stealthbox mounting location, as shown. Be sure the wires will not be pinched once the Stealthbox is bolted into position.

The top of the factory center console is used as the top of the Stealthbox.

STEP 16: Remove the lid of the console by removing the 4 torx screws holding the lid to the console. The hinges should not be removed from the lid.

STEP 17: Remove the 8 torx screws that hold the two sections of the console together. Separate the console.

The lower section of the console will not be used. Save this piece in the event the original console is ever reinstalled.

STEP 18: Using four of the supplied pan head screws,attach the four supplied "L" brackets to the top section of the console using the factory screw holes, as shown.

STEP 19: Using the two supplied plastic spacers and the four screws previously removed in STEP 17, attach the lid to the top section of the console. The spacers should be inserted between the lid hinge and the top of the console.

The console top is now ready for installation onto the

Stealthbox.

STEP 20: Place the assembled top section of the console onto the Stealthbox. Align it so that it is flush on all sides.

STEP 21: While pressing down firmly and evenly on the top of the console, mark the location of the mounting holes for all four of the "L" brackets with a marker or felt tip pen. The lower hole in each bracket should be used for mounting. The upper hole in each bracket is unused.

IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT THAT YOU PRE-DRILLTHESE HOLES! If the holes are notpre-drilledthe fiberglass may crack and the warranty on the Stealthbox WILL BE VOID.

STEP 22: Using a 1/16" drill bit, pre-drillthe screw holes you marked in STEP 22. The holes should be 3/4" deep.

STEP 23: Mount the top section of the console to the Stealthbox using four of the supplied pan head screws. Do not overtighten the screws! We recommend installing these screws by hand to lessen the chance of stripping the fiberglass.

STEP 24: Under the front storage compartment lid, drill two holes using a 1/16" drill bit, as shown. The holes should be 3/4" deep.

STEP 25: Using a 7/32" drill bit, drill countersink slots for the screw heads.

STEP 26: Using the supplied small screws, screw the front edge of the console to the Stealthbox.

STEP 27: Place the supplied shallow storage tray insert into the main storage area of the finished Stealthbox. Use Velcro® (provided) to attach coin box to storage tray.

STEP 28: Snap the factory storage bin previously removed in

STEP 1 into the front portion of the Stealthbox.

TECH TIP: We have found that stuffing polyfill under

these bins before installation may reduce the chances of rattles at high volume levels.

STEP 29: While one person adjusts the Stealthbox from inside the vehicle, a second person should bolt the Stealthbox into place from underneath the vehicle. See diagram below:
