3 Attaching Speaker Onto Your Mounts
IMPORTANT: Installation & Waterproofness
Installing the EX Footwell Speaker Mounts
In order to attach the EX Footwell speaker mounts, we recommend that you have a licensed Yamaha dealer drill holes into your Yamaha WaveRunner EX personal watercraft. Doing it yourself could damage your vehicle, and void the warranty.
Maintaining Waterproofness

To ensure the unit is watertight & waterproof, ALWAYS CLOSE THE CAP PROPERLY.
To do so, turn the cap all the way to the RIGHT (clockwise).

Read and follow all instructions. Use only as intended.
CAUTION: Do NOT open to repair. A qualified technician must carry out repair work.
ATTENTION: Do NOT charge while the unit is wet. Towel dry the unit AND make sure all connections are dry BEFORE plugging in the charging connector. Failure to do so may result in electrical damage to the unit and may void the warranty.
PROPOSITION 65 WARNING: Cancer and Reproductive Harm -

This product has a limited life span of use and should be replaced when it shows obvious signs of wear.
Do not modify or remove any original component parts of the speaker. Doing so could cause damage to the unit allowing water to ingress. A unit with water ingress should not be charged due to potential risk of fire or shock.
Do not attempt to mount the unit except with the approved ECOXGEAR mounts. Doing so could cause damage to the unit allowing water to ingress. A unit with water ingress should not be charged due to potential risk of fire or shock.
