IMPORTANT: Installation of automotive
stereo components can require extensive
experience in performing a variety of
electrical and mechanical procedures.
Although these instructions explain how
to install a JBL Power Series Amplifier in
a general sense, they do not show the
exact installation methods for your
particular vehicle. If you do not have the
experience, do not attempt the
installation yourself; instead ask your
Authorized JBL Car Audio Dealer about
professional installation options.

amplifiers feature the latest advances in
discrete circuit topology ensuring low
distortion and superbly clean and clear
sound quality. In addition to RCA type
pre-amp inputs, Power Series amplifiers
feature Universal Interface™, designed to
facilitate integration with factory installed
audio systems for distortion free
performance that rivals conventional pre-
amp connections. Included in the
Universal Interface circuit is Common
Sense™ turn-on. Common Sense turn-on
senses the common-mode voltage
present on the speaker outputs of factory
and aftermarket radios, turning on the
amplifier without a separate remote wire.
All Power Series amplifiers feature built-
in electronic crossovers and pre-amp
outputs for easy system expansion
without requiring outboard processors.
