Installation and Operation of the Jensen JBX100SR Shuttle Boom Box
Boom Box Controls
The Jensen Sirius® Boom Box JBX100SR provides two control buttons, a Power On/Off -Volume control, and a push-button to toggle between Satellite Radio or an auxiliary audio input signal. A power-on LED is also located on the front panel.
- PHONES Jack: Accepts a stereo headphone jack to provide private listening capability for the Boom Box.
- SRS/AUX Selector Pushbutton: Pushbutton toggles between Satellite Radio and an external audio input signal (MP3, CD, etc.) present at the AUX input jack.
- AUX Jack: Accepts an audio input signal from an external audio device. When using the AUX audio input, turn the Shuttle off to preserve battery power. Adjust the volume level of the external audio device to obtain audio output from the JBX100SR. The volume control on the external audio device should be set to mid-range.
- Power On/Low Battery LED: The LED lights green when the Power On/Off Switch-VOL control is rotated clockwise (CW) to the On position. In addition, the LED will light red to alert the user that the batteries are nearly discharged. This condition may cause degraded performance of the JBX100SR.
- Power On/Off Switch-VOL Control: Applies power to the Boom Box when rotated clockwise (CW) from the Off position. When in On position, increases or decreases the volume of the audio output signal from the JBX100SR. To increase the volume level, rotate the control CW. To decrease the volume level, rotate the control counterclockwise (CCW).
- Release Button: Press this button to release and remove the Shuttle from the JBX100SR cradle.
Your Boom Box can operate independently of AC power by installing 8 D-Cell batteries.
Note: The batteries are bypassed automatically whenever the supplied AC Adapter is plugged into the DC 12V jack on the back panel.
- Turn the Boom Box upside down to access the battery compartment.
- Push the battery cover latches forward and flip up the battery compartment cover to the open position.
- Insert eight (8) D-Cell batteries observing battery polarity as shown; then close the cover.
You can begin to enjoy Sirius® Satellite Radio as soon as the Shuttle and Boom Box Kit installation are complete. Set up your Jensen JBX100SR by following the interconnect diagram below.
Installing the Shuttle in the JBX100SR
- Place the Shuttle in the cradle so that the Shuttle guides are lined up with the JBX100SR cradle.
- Then push the Shuttle forward to engage the connectors. The Shuttle will snap into place.
- Apply power to the JBX100SR by rotating the VOL control clockwise from the off position; the LED indicator lights green. If the Shuttle does not turn on at the same time, press the red Power On/Off button in the upper left corner of the Shuttle front panel.
Removing the Shuttle From the JBX100SR:
- Press and hold the eject button on top of the Boom Box; the Shuttle will partially eject forward.
- Using your thumb and forefinger, grasp the Shuttle on the sides and pull forward to disengage.
Installing/Positioning the Antenna
For best reception, the supplied antenna should be placed near a window if in the house or, if outdoors, in an open area and as high as possible; some repositioning may be required to achieve optimum results. The following guidelines are recommended:
- In a major city, where Sirius ground repeaters are present, you can usually place the antenna away from a window and still achieve the desired results.
- You can also place the antenna outside (on the roof structure), provided it is clear of any overhead obstructions. Because of the orbiting characteristics of the Sirius Satellites, the strength of the received signal may change over time. In most cases however, the signal should be available continuously. If you experience a loss of signal or audio, reposition the antenna inside the home or outside as necessary.
Antenna Placement Considerations: The antenna should be placed on a relatively flat surface whenever possible. When outdoors, the antenna may be left in its mount atop the Boom Box provided no overhead obstructions are present. To mount the antenna:
- Plug the antenna into the ANT connector on the back of the JBX100SR.
- Leave the antenna in place on the Boom Box, or remove the antenna from its mount, uncoil the antenna lead, and place it at the preferred location inside or outside the home. If no audio is heard, move the antenna to different positions on the surface until an audio output is heard. This is the desired antenna position and, if indoors, should be marked.
- After determining the optimum position, turn off JBX100SR and Shuttle power. Disconnect the power adapter from the wall outlet receptacle (if indoors) and disconnect the antenna cable.
- Plan the routing of the antenna cable to the JBX100SR ANT input when indoors. Make sure you avoid any obstructions that could crimp, kink or twist the cable; use protective grommets wherever rough openings are encountered. If the antenna is mounted outside, route the cable from the antenna position to the interior of the home, working the cable through the basement, under a window sill, etc.; make adjustments and take up slack whenever necessary.
- If outdoors, either leave the antenna in place atop the JBX100SR, or remove the antenna and find a location free from overhead obstructions such as tree branches, or the roof of a tent or other temporary shelter.
- Plug the antenna cable into the ANT connector on the back of the JBX100SR.
- If not using battery power as the primary power source, plug the female end of the DC adapter cable into the DC 12V receptacle on the rear of the JBX100SR.
- Plug the other end of the DC adapter cable into a 110-volt receptacle. Apply power to the Boom Box and Shuttle.
- You are now ready to enjoy Sirius programming outdoors or within your home.
