Installing

Juke is quick and easy to install. Place it on a shelf, or mount it in a 19” equipment rack with optional rack ears. Juke is very energy-efficient and produces much less heat than traditional amplifiers. However, you must ensure that nothing is sitting on top of it and that other equipment isn’t causing it to be located in a hot environment. Once Juke is in position, it’s time to connect your speaker wires and get Juke onto your local network.. You can follow the instructions below or watch a video tutorial: Connecting Speaker Wires to Juke

Wiring

Tools required (not included): wire strippers, scissors and small blade screwdriver

Cut a small amount of the insulation covering the speaker wires

Peal back the insulation to expose 2 or 3 inches of wire

Peal it like a banana

Cut off the excess insulation

Strip about 1/4 inch of insulation from each wire

Fan out the wire strands

Twist the wire strands and make sure none are sticking out

Insert each wire in the terminal block and tighten the screw

Repeat the steps for the remaining wires

Repeat the steps for the remaining wires

Plug each connector firmly into the Juke until it locks in place

Repeat these steps for all of the zones

Network Setup

Juke Audio must be connected to your local area network by using either Ethernet or Wi-Fi. This network must be the same one that is used by the devices you use to play your audio.

ETHERNET SETUP

The preferred way to get Juke on your network is to connect it to your router with an Ethernet cable (which is included with Juke). If Ethernet isn’t available, skip to the next section and learn how to use Wi-Fi instead.

 

Insert the Ethernet cable into the receptacle with the tab on the bottom

WI-FI SETUP

If Juke is connected via Ethernet, skip this section because there is no need to configure Wi-Fi.

If Juke is within approximately 10 to 15 feet of an access point, you can use its internal Wi-Fi. Otherwise, if the distance is greater, we recommend instead using a TP-Link N300, pairing that with your network, and then connecting Juke to the TP-Link N300 using the Ethernet cable.

When using Juke’s internal Wi-Fi, before it’s configured, Juke will appear as an access point called JUKEAUDIO. Go to your devices Wi-Fi setup and select JUKEAUDIO. For example, on an iPhone, this will look like this.

 

Once your device is connected to JUKEAUDIO, access the Juke homescreen by typing ‘juke.local’ (or ‘10.0.0.5’ for Android users) in your preferred browser. Log in as admin with the default password ‘Admin’ and navigate to the NETWORK SETUP screen. You should now see the following.

Choose your Wi-Fi router from the list, or enter it manually if you are doing this prior to placing the Juke in its intended location. Note: if Juke does not show your Wi-Fi access point in the list, it probably means that it is out of range. You will need to fix this by adding an access point closer to Juke, or by wiring an Ethernet connection.

Enter the password for your Wi-Fi access point, and click Submit.

Then, reconnect your device to your Wi-Fi network. (This will likely happen automatically because Juke stops acting as an access point once it’s on your network.)

Wait a minute, hit refresh in your browser, and you’re done!

ADDITIONAL NOTES

If you’re having trouble connecting to your Juke using “juke.local”, try the alternate url “jukeaudio.local.” On multi-Juke systems this may not always resolve to the main server Juke.

If your Juke fails to connect to the new network, it will return to the network it was previously on. If it was not on a network or if that network becomes inaccessible, it will appear as an access point (JUKEAUDIO).

If you are an Android user, your browser may not be able to automatically resolve Juke’s address. You may have to manually enter in the assigned IP address for the device. This information can be found in your router’s settings or by using the app Fing on the Google Store.
