WARNINGS / 警告
• You need the installation kits which corresponds to your car.
• If you have any questions or require information regarding installation kits, consult your JVC car audio
dealer or a company supplying kits.
• The unit can only be installed in a car with a 12 V DC power supply, negative ground.
• Disconnect the battery’s negative terminal and make all electrical connections before installing the unit.
• Connect speakers with a maximum power of more than 50 W (impedance of 4 Ω to 8 Ω). Otherwise,
change the <AMP GAIN> setting. (See page 15 of the INSTRUCTIONS.)
• Insulate unconnected wires with vinyl tape or other similar material. To prevent a short circuit, do not
remove the caps on the ends of the unconnected wires or the terminals.
• If the fuse blows, first make sure the wires are not touching to cause a short circuit, then replace the old
fuse with one that has the same rating.
• Install this unit in the console of your vehicle.
• Mount the unit so that the mounting angle is 30° or less.
• Be sure to ground this unit to the car’s chassis again after installation.
• After the unit is installed, check whether the brake lamps, blinkers, wipers, etc. on the car are working
properly.
• Do not touch the metal part of this unit during and shortly after the use of the unit. Metal part such as the
heat sink and enclosure become hot.

您需要與您的汽車相配套的安裝元件。
如果您有問題,或需要有關配套元件的資料,請向 JVC汽車音響分銷商或配套元件供應公司詢問。
本機僅可安裝在以直流 12 V 供電,負極接地的車內。
在安裝本機之前,拔開電池的負極端子,並把所有電路都連接好。
連接最大功率大於 50 W 的揚聲器(阻抗為 4 Ω – 8 Ω)。 否則,請切換 <AMP GAIN> 設定。 (參閱使用
說明書的第 15 頁。)
用絕緣帶或其他類似材料使未接上的電線絕緣。為防止電源短路,請勿除去未接上電線或端子兩端的保護蓋。
如果保險絲燒壞,首先請確認電線沒有接觸而導致短路,然後用相同負荷值的保險絲更換舊的保險絲。
將本機安裝在車內的控制台上。
安裝本機時安裝角度最大為 30°。
安裝完畢後務必將本機的地線重新接至車身。
安裝完本機後,請檢查車上的剎車燈,信號燈,雨刷等是否能正常工作。
請勿在使用本機的過程中和在使用本機後不久觸摸本機的金屬部分。金屬部分如散熱片和外殼變得很熱。
PRECAUTIONS on power supply and speaker connections
電源和揚聲器接線注意事項
• DO NOT connect the speaker leads of the power cord to the car battery; otherwise, the unit will be
seriously damaged.
• BEFORE connecting the speaker leads of the power cord to the speakers, check the speaker wiring in
your car.
• 切勿把揚聲器導線接頭接至電池,否則本機將會嚴重損壞。
• 在把揚聲器導線接頭接至揚聲器之前,檢查您汽車上的揚聲器線路。
