The Boost Box is designed to install in four quick and easy steps and requires no special tools. There is no need to locate or splice into the boat's speedometer or tachometer wiring system. The installation and operation manuals for each of the Boost Box models can be downloaded from the links below.
Step 1. Attach the Boost Box control unit to a level place on the boat using the included self-adhesive Velcro tape. It is best to mount the control unit near the driver so it can be easily accessed to adjust the control knob. The Boost Box is water-resistant and does not need to be protected against the weather. If the control unit is being mounted to a carpeted surface, we recommend using small screws to hold the Velcro tape in place.
Step 2. Connect the Boost Box to the boat's 12-volt power system. The Boost Box can be wired into any 12-volt circuit. The recommended installation is to connect the Boost Box to the same ground and power wires going to the boat stereo. If desired, an option power-port plug is sold separately on the accessories page.
Step 3. Connect the Boost Box to the boat stereo using the control cable. Depending on the boat stereo, the control cable either connects to the wired remote control unit on stereo head unit, or connects to the face of the stereo using the self-adhesive IR transmitter (pictured).
Step 4. Program the Boost Box for your particular brand of stereo. The Boost Box only has to be programmed one time and stores the programming information when it is turned off, disconnected, or even stored for long periods of time. The Boost Box must be fully installed with the boat power on and the stereo on in order to set the program codes.
Quickly rotate the control knob clockwise from the off position to the max boost position. The LED light on the front of the control unit will begin to flash as the Boost Box sequences through various stereo control codes.
When the stereo volume turns up, rotate the Boost Box control knob to the mid-point and wait for the LED light to stop flashing.
Once the LED light stops flashing, rotate the Boost Box control knob to the off position. Your Boost Box is now programmed and ready for use.
