    In the section Deluxe and Super Kit: Expansion Wiring (YELLOW), there needs to be a step to ensure that the Controller/Ethernet switch on Hub 2 is set to ETH. 

    Both of my boards were set to CON out of the box, and it took some troubleshooting to figure out why the backbox lighting was working but the under cabinet lighting wasn't.

    The speaker kit included in the Super version of the Dynamic kit has a major caveat that isn't revealed until after the main instructions. If you have the required 5.25" speakers and installed them yourself, you're probably going to need a gasket that isn't included in the kit, and the Stern version is stupidly expensive ($13) for what appears to be a poorly cut piece of foam. Oh yeah, that price isn't for a pair - that's each.

    That should be mentioned on the product page before purchase - preferably with a description on what material you need and a template for making your own. I happened to have a stash of dense EVA foam and an old bracket to trace for the template.

    It's extremely easy to make them, but it's an unpleasant surprise when you find out you need it after following the installation instructions.

    The video for section Install Under Cabinet lighting (BLUE) wasn't available when I set up my lights, and there is a discrepancy between what measurements this page says to use ("within 6" from rear of cabinet") and what the video says (install brackets @ 10" and 33" from the rear - go along the edge for Dynamic or 5" in from the edge for Expression. 

    Gonna have to remount those on my install.

    Thanks for the feedback Brian.

    We've made a few changes to the article which clears up the initial confusion on the following:

    • Ensuring Source is set during installation of Expansion (YELLOW) parts
    • Matching channel placement (and location to back of cabinet) language in video and written steps

    The foam gasket you referred to is one that is included from the factory on all Stern LEs as well as the PinWoofer Speaker upgrade product. For those who have purchased aftermarket speakers from other sources, a foam gasket will be required. This will be added to our product requirements and feature matrix on the next revision.
