We strongly recommend that you have your new Stealthbox® installed by your authorized JL Audio dealer.

If you prefer to perform your own installation, please read this installation guide completely

before beginning the process.

If you choose to perform the installation yourself, it is absolutely vital that the Stealthbox® be properly mounted to the vehicle according to these instructions. Failure to mount the enclosure properly presents two problems:

1)The sub-bassperformance will suffer due to the movement of the enclosure caused by the force exerted by the woofer(s).

2)A loose enclosure presents a serious safety hazard in the event of a collision or sudden deceleration.

Place a supplied fender washer, flat washer, split lock washer and hex nut onto the socket cup set screw. Secure, but do not over tighten. We know you are “Strong like bull”, but you do not have to use all your He-manpower on this little nut.

Note: For added protection it is recommended that you apply a bead of silicone between the vehicle and the fender washer. After the bolt assembly is tightly secured, it is also recommended that vehicle undercoating material is applied to the exposed assembly
