• Before drilling or cutting holes,
use a utility knife to remove
unwanted fabric or vinyl to keep
material from snagging in a drill
bit.
• When routing cables, keep input-
signal cables away from power
cables and speaker wires. 
• When making connections, make 
certain they are secure and proper-
ly insulated.
• If the amplifier’s fuse must be
replaced, use only the same type
and rating as that of the original.
Do not substitute another kind.

your particular vehicle. If you feel
you lack the necessary tools or
experience, ask your authorized JBL
car-audio dealer about professional
installation options.
Installation Warnings and Tips
• Always wear protective eyewear
when using tools.
• Turn off all audio systems and
other electrical devices before you
start. Disconnect the (–) negative
lead from your vehicle’s battery.
• Check clearances on both sides of
a planned mounting surface before
drilling any holes or installing any
screws. Remember that the screws
can extend behind the surface.
• At the installation sites, locate and
make a note of all fuel lines,
hydraulic brake lines, vacuum lines
and electrical wiring. Use extreme
caution when cutting or drilling in
and around these areas.
Thank you 
for purchasing a JBL
Power Series™ amplifier. In order
that we may better serve you should
you require warranty service for
your new amplifier, please retain
your original purchase receipt and
return the enclosed warranty regis-
tration card.
Warning: Playing loud music in an
automobile can permanently dam-
age your hearing as well as hinder
your ability to hear traffic. We rec-
ommend listening at low levels
while driving your car. JBL accepts
no liability for hearing loss, bodily
injury or property damage resulting
from use or misuse of this product. 
Important: Installation of automo-
tive stereo components can require
extensive experience in performing
a variety of mechanical and electri-
cal procedures. Although these
instructions explain, in a general
sense, how to install Power Series
amplifiers, they may not show 
the exact installation methods for
Choosing a Location and Mounting
the Amplifier
Amplifiers need air to stay cool.
Suitable locations are under a seat
(provided the amplifier doesn’t
interfere with the seat adjustment
mechanism), in the trunk or in any
other location which provides
enough air for the amp to cool itself.
Do not mount the amplifier with the
heat sink facing downward, as this
makes convection cooling of the
amplifier impossible.
Mount the amplifier so that it is not
damaged by the feet of back-seat
passengers or shifting cargo in the
trunk. Mount the amplifier so that it
remains dry – never mount an
amplifier outside the car or in the
engine compartment. 
Using the amplifier as a template,
mark the location of the mounting
holes on the mounting surface, drill
pilot holes, and attach the amplifier
to the mounting surface with
screws. Make sure the amplifier is
mounted securely.

Wiring the Power Connections
Refer to Figures 1–3 for connector
locations. All the Power Series
amplifiers will accept up to 4-gauge
power and ground wire.
For power, remote and ground con-
nections, strip off one end of each
jacket to reveal bare wire for inser-
tion into the connectors. Connect a
wire from the GND connector on the
amplifier to the nearest bare-metal
chassis component; scrape away
the paint to ensure good conductivi-
ty. Next, connect a wire between the
BATT terminal on the amplifier and
the POS(+) terminal of the vehicle’s
battery. Pass the wire through a fac-
tory-installed grommet in the fire-
wall, or install a grommet if a facto-
ry grommet is not available.
Connect a wire between the REM
terminal of the amplifier and the
“remote out” or power-antenna lead
on the vehicle’s radio.
Wiring the Speaker-Output
Connections
P80.2, P180.2, P80.4
All the Power Series amplifiers will
accept up to 8-gauge speaker wire.
Connect the speakers, observing
proper polarity, to the speaker-out-
put connector. The total impedance
of the speaker system connected to
the amplifier when the amplifier is
driven in stereo must be at least two
ohms. 
If you are bridging the amplifier,
connect the speaker wires to the ter-
minals marked “bridged,” observing
proper polarity. The total impedance
of the speaker system connected to
the amplifier must be at least four
ohms in bridged mode. 
If you are running the amp in Tri-
Mode (stereo and mono simultane-
ously), connect the satellite speakers
to the speaker connector as you
would a pair of stereo speakers.
Connect the subwoofer to the termi-
nals marked “bridged” Refer to the
chart above to determine the capaci-
tor and inductor values you’ll need
to route bass signals to the woofer,
and the midrange and high frequen-
cies to the satellite speakers. These
passive crossover components will
also ensure that the impedance of
the speaker system doesn’t drop
below two ohms.
BP150.1, BP300.1
Connect the woofers to the amplifi-
er, observing proper polarity.
Although these amplifiers have a
single channel, duplicate positive
and negative connectors are provid-
ed to facilitate the connection of
multiple woofers.
The total impedance of the speaker 
system connected to a BP Series 
amplifier must be at least 1 ohm.
