Welcome to TK10116

​​First Order TK Audio System


​Materials list: 

You should have received the following items.

Amplifier (1), Speakers with harness and connectors (2), “Y” cable (1), Speaker cloth (1), Omni-directional Microphone (1), Rectangular insulating foam (2), Square insulating foam (1), Rectangular foam speaker risers (hollow in the middle) (2) Note: Only needed with the Anovos injection molded helmets

Installation Instructions:
If your have the Anovos injection molded helmet follow this step, if not go to step 2 or 3. Install the supplied foam risers around raised tube vent holes on both left and righ sides of the helmet. Ensure the riser is sealed against the helmet.

If you have the Anovos fiberglass helmet, pull back material exposing the tube vent holes. Any other helmet mfg continue to step 3.

Cut provided black speaker cloth in half. Place a section over the speaker risers. If not using the risers, place ofer the vent holes.

Place speakers over the speaker cloth with the harness heading towards the back of the helmet.

Place rectangular insulating foam over speaker and 1/2” section of harness. Note: The goal hear is to completely seal the speaker and harness to helmet.

Connect “Y” harness (female connectors) to male speaker connectors.

Connect the opposite end of the “Y” harness (3.5mm connector) to “speaker” port of the rechargable amplifier. Note: Amplifier should already be fully charged.

Connect Omni-directional microphone to “mic” port on the amplifier.

Power amplifier on by rotating knob. Note: The knob is also the volume control.

Test system

Using velcro or other to secure the amplifier to the inside of your helmet at a location of your choosing.

The omni-mic can be placed on your head or you can use the remaining square insulating foam provided to secure it to the inside of the helmet. Regardless of mounting position the mic itself needs to be positioned close to your mouth for optimum operation and help avoid feedback issues.

If all is well re-secure (glue) helmet insulation back to helmet, if applicable.

Additional Information
The “AUX” port on the amplifier is for audio input. If you have a MP3 player (or other compatible device) you can plug it into this port via a 3.5mm male connector (not provided). Afterward you can play music, TK chatter (found on the 501st website) or other audio through the speakers.

NOTE: 

Like many other sound systems the audio system is sensitive and is prone to feedback “screeching”, especially if the amp power is turned up too loud,or there's not enough insulation between the speakers and the microphone. Also, depending on the tone of your voice you may have to remove mic sock to increase the output capability. If you still continue to have some feedback issues add more insulation to the speakers or your volume level maybe too loud.

Biker Scout & Shoretrooper Audio System


​​Materials List: 

You should have received the following items.

Helmet Snout with speaker and harness (1), Amplifier with wall charger (1ea), Extension cable (1), Omni-directional Microphone (1)

Installation Instructions:
The hovi section comes painted because the there is a speaker and speaker cloth directly behind the steel mesh. If painted over the existing paint it may effect the speaker performance or damage the speaker. If you choose to repaint this do so at your own risk.

The engine and hovi assembly is designed to be used with different helmet platforms. Using ABS plastic you'll need to duplicate the engine base plate that is not provided.

Once you've duplicate the base plate you need to select the engine location, drill a hole through the base plate and helmet. Feed the snout speaker harness & connector through the holes.

You'll then need to secure the engine assembly to the base plate with E6000 or similar. Once the engine glue has dried and the engine and back plate are reinstalled on the helmet it is recommended you seal space around the harness hole with duct tape or similar.

Connect the extension cable to the engine assembly harness.

Connect the extension cable to the amplifier “SPKR” port.

Connect the Omni-directional microphone to the “MIC” port of the amp

Power on the amplifier by rotating the on/off volume wheel and test.

Using Velcro (not provided) mount the amplifier in a area of your choosing.

Permanently mount the mic to the helmet using tap or other. For optimum system performance the mic should rest on your lips when the helmet is installed.

Recheck operation.

Additional Information
The “AUX” port on the amplifier is for audio input. If you have a MP3 player (or other compatible device) you can plug it into this port via a 3.5mm male connector (not provided). Afterward you can play music, TB chatter (found on the 501st website) or other audio through the audio system.

NOTE:
Like many other sound systems the audio system is sensitive and is prone to feedback “screeching”, especially if the amp power is turned up too loud, or there's not enough insulation between the speaker and the microphone. Also, depending on the tone of your voice you may have to remove mic sock to increase the output capability. If you still continue to have some feedback issues add more insulation to the front of the helmet speaker, or your volume level maybe too loud.

3) Remove adhesive backing from 1/4" risers and place over speaker cloth.

4) Place speakers over the speakers over risers holes with the harness directed towards the back of the helmet.
5) Place 5" rectangular insulating foam over speaker and a 1/2” of harness lengthwise. Slightly overlapping the other section of insulation works best. Note: The goal hear is to completely seal the speaker and harness to helmet. 
6) Connect “Y” harness female connectors to male speaker connectors.
7) Connect the opposite end of the “Y” harness (3.5mm connector) to “speaker” port of the rechargeable amplifier. Note: Amplifier should already be fully charged.
8) Connect Anker directional microphone to “mic” port on the amplifier.
9) Power amplifier on by rotating knob. The red LED will light up. Note: The knob is also the volume control.

NOTE: Test system before continuing.
A) Using velcro or other to secure the amplifier to the inside of your helmet at a location of your choosing.
B) The mic can be placed on your head or remove head wire and velcro directly to helmet. For optimum operation and help avoid feedback issues. the mic needs to be positioned with the white line (near the mic filter) close to your mouth.

11) Power on receiver (For this portion have your amplifier turned on and at roughly 3/4 volume). Depress the power button on the receiver for roughly 5 seconds. The LED will be a solid blue for a couple secoinds then begin to flash blue. If you hold it longer than 7 seconds the receiver will be placed in Pairing mode (flashing red light). If this happens simply hold the power button again to power off, then retry. Once started you'll briefly hear a musical note.

12) Power on MP3 player. Switch power button to "ON" position. Using the top menu button navigate to "Bluetooth", press the center (arrow) button. Allow the the player to search for receivers. Once you see "LOTFANCY" highlight and press center button. Afterwards you may be prompt to "Connect", if so highlight and press the center button. Afterwards you should be taken to the audio file directory where you should see two DT or Deathtrooper audio files. Try both to see which you want to use.  

13) Set the Mp3 player and voice volumes. Everyone is different. Adjust to suit your needs. If you experience feed back try try adjusting the MP3 volume higher but lower the amp. Also, make sure your speakers are fully sealed. NOTE: A single self adhesive clear riser, roughly 1/4" round has also been provided. In the event you have difficulty operating the Play/Pause button with gloves on, trim the clear riser and then attached it to the MP3 play/Pause button.


That's it! Velcro all your items in place and you should be good to go. Enjoy!
