• 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 properly
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.

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
registration card.
Warning: Playing loud music in an auto-
mobile can permanently damage your
hearing as well as hinder your ability to
hear traffic. We recommend 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 automotive
stereo components can require extensive
experience in performing a variety of
mechanical and electrical procedures.
Although these instructions explain, in a
general sense, how to install Power
Series amplifiers, they may not show 
the exact installation methods for your
particular vehicle. If you feel you lack the
necessary tools or experience, ask your
authorized JBL car-audio dealer about
professional installation options.
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 pas-
sengers 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 loca-
tions. All the Power Series amplifiers
will accept up to 4-gauge power and
ground wire.
For power, remote and ground connec-
tions, strip off one end of each jacket to
reveal bare wire for insertion 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
conductivity. 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
factory-installed grommet in the firewall,
or install a grommet if a factory grom-
met is not available. Connect a wire
between the REM terminal of the ampli-
fier 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-output 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 terminals
marked “bridged,” observing proper
polarity. The total impedance of the
speaker system connected to the amplifi-
er must be at least four ohms in bridged
mode. 
If you are running the amp in Tri-Mode
(stereo and mono simultaneously), con-
nect the satellite speakers to the speaker
connector as you would a pair of stereo
speakers. Connect the subwoofer to the
terminals marked “bridged” Refer to the
chart above to determine the capacitor
and inductor values you’ll need to route
bass signals to the woofer, and the
midrange and high frequencies to the
satellite speakers. These passive
crossover components will also ensure
that the impedance of the speaker sys-
tem doesn’t drop below two ohms.
BP150.1, BP300.1, BP600.1, BP1200.1
Connect the woofers to the amplifier,
observing proper polarity. Although
these amplifiers have a single channel,
duplicate positive and negative connec-
tors are provided to facilitate the connec-
tion of multiple woofers.
The total impedance of the speaker 
system connected to a BP Series 
amplifier must be at least 1 ohm.
