Insert the RGB LED Matrix into the frame. Reference the labels on the silkscreen to determine the "upright" orientation. 

Frame Slot

Check the side of the frame with the slot is facing the right side of the RGB LED Matrix. 

Install Acrylic to Frame

The sheet of black LED acrylic is inserted and pushed through the slot on the right side of the frame. Note: The photo is showing the matrix upside down, hence on the left side of the frame.

Install Feet

Place one of the feet over the two mounting holes on the back of the RGB LED Matrix. Line up the tabs on the foot with the mounting holes.

Use the included M3 thumb screws to secure the foot to the RGB Matrix.

Installed Feet

Proceed to secure the second foot to the RGB LED Matrix using the remaining M3 thumb screws. Reference the photo for the correct placement and orientation.

Connect Speaker to Amp

Plug in the JST connectors from the PAM8302 amp to the speaker.

Plug In Power Cable to RGB Matrix

Insert the connector from the power cable to the power port on the back of the RGB Matrix. Check to ensure the tab is fully seated over the connector.
