STEALTHBOX

SB-VW-NB/10W3

Fits 1998-00Volkswagen Beetle

Installation of this Stealthbox requires professional installation skills and tools. Please read this installation guide thoroughly before beginning the project. It will guide you step by step through the installation. It is absolutely vital that the enclosure 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 and 2) A loose enclosure presents a serious safety hazard in the event of a collision or sudden deceleration.

STEP 1: Remove the carpet from the floor of the trunk including the rear flap and hardware used to secure it (This hardware will be used later in the installation).

STEP 2: Remove the contents of the spare tire well.

STEP 3: Place the supplied wax square in the location shown in Picture #1.

STEP 4: Fully insert the supplied bolt into the insert on the bottom of the Stealthbox.

STEP 5: Place the Stealthbox in the trunk in its proper location as shown in Picture #2 and push down firmly to force the bolt head to make an imprint in the wax square.

STEP 6: Remove the Stealthbox and locate the impression in the wax square.

CAUTION: Check under the vehicle for any loose brake lines, fuel lines or other hazards before drilling. Always wear eye protection when drilling.

STEP 7: Drill a 3/8” hole in the location of the imprint in the wax square.
