INSTALLATION
This section lists mounting and wiring precautions prior to installing the Clarion
amplifier. These safeguards provide enough detail to complete an installation successfully. Do not attempt to install the amplifier yourself, if you do not have the necessary skills. Instead, see your authorized Clarion dealer for installation recommendations.
MOUNTING PRECAUTIONS
Although the Clarion amplifiers incorporate heat sinks and protection circuits, mounting the amplifier in a tight space without any air movement will result in damage to
the amp’s internal circuitry over time. Choose a site that provides adequate ventilation around the amplifier. For easy system setup, mount the amplifier so the frontpanel controls are accessible after installation.
In addition, observe the following precautions:
1. For the most efficient cooling, mount the amplifier so cool air runs along the length
of the fins rather than across them. Remember, any moving air will dissipate heat.
2. Mount the amplifier on a rigid surface. Avoid mounting to subwoofer enclosures or
areas prone to vibration. Do not install the amplifier on plastic or other combustible
materials.
3. Prior to drilling, make sure proposed mounting holes will not cut into the fuel tank,
fuel lines, brake lines (under chassis), or electrical wiring.
WIRING PRECAUTIONS
Read all wiring precautions. If you are not sure of the connections, contact your
authorized Clarion dealer.
1. Before installation, make sure the source unit’s Power switch is in the OFF position.
2. Disconnect the negative (-) lead of the battery before making any power connections.
PRECAUTIONS
3. When making connections, be sure that each connection is clean and secure.
Insulate final connections with electrical tape or shrink tubing. Failure to do so may
result in damage to your equipment.
4. A secure, clean ground connection is critical to the performance of your Clarion
amplifier. Use the shortest ground wire possible and securely connect to the vehicle’s
chassis to minimize resistance and avoid noise problems. Be sure to clean off any
paint prior to making this connection.
5. Add an external fuse on the amplifier’s positive (+) power lead and connect it as
close as possible to the vehicle’s (+) battery terminal. Use a fuse rated to the total current consumption of the amplifier(s). Adding an external fuse will protect the electrical system from short circuits that can result in a fire.

Owner’s Manual
The Input Connections are gold-plated RCA Jacks. The Gain Controls provide a
wide adjustment range to accommodate output levels from any source unit brand.
Precise Frequency Selector
The filter frequency markings on the front panel of the amplifier are for reference
purposes. If you would like to select the filter frequency with a higher level of precision, consult the chart in Figure 3 on this page. This chart gives you a more accurate frequency for each of the forty-one detented positions of the frequency selection
control.
• Gain Controls with Selectable Input Voltage
There are 2 settings for the "Gain" that must be
adjusted in order to maximize the power output of
the amplifier. The first step is to select the proper
input voltage and the second step is to adjust the
Gain dial.
CONNECTIONS
• Input Voltage Selector
A wide range of signal input voltages can be accommodated by the APX320.2, APX640.2, APX640.4
and DPX1001.1 input section (200mV - 8V). This
wide range is split up into three ranges, Figure 2,
accessible via switches located in the "Gain" of the
amplifier. The "0.2V-0.6V" position on the switch
selects an input sensitivity range between 200mV
and 600mV, the "0.6V-2V" position on the switch
selects an input sensitivity range between 600mV
and 2V and the "2V-8V" position on the switch
selects an input sensitivity range between 2V and
8V. This means that the "Gain" rotary control will
operate within that voltage window. If you are using
an aftermarket source unit with RCA outputs, make
sure you select the proper voltage selection range.
For example, if the RCA voltage of the aftermarket
head unit is rated at 4 volts, set the switch at
"2V-8V".

• Load Selector
Please note that when configuring the DPX1001.1 amplifier, the LOAD SELECTOR switch
must be set in the correct position in order for the amplifier to function properly. Please refer
to the chart below for specific settings.

• Gain Dial
Located next to the input voltage selector, is a rotary control labeled "Gain". Once the
appropriate input voltage range has been selected, this rotary control can be used to
match the source unit's output voltage to the input stage of the amplifier for maximum
clean output. Rotating the control clockwise will result in higher sensitivity (louder for
a given input voltage). Rotating the control counter-clockwise will result in lower sensitivity (quieter for a given input voltage). After using this procedure, you can then
adjust the level of the amplifier by adjusting the input sensitivity downward, if the
amplifier requires attenuation to achieve the desired system balance. Do not increase
the "Gain" setting for any amplifier in the system beyond the maximum level. Doing
so will result in audible distortion and possible speaker damage.
CONNECTIONS
• Bass Boost Control
The amplifier also features a “high-Q” (i.e., narrow frequency band) Bass Boost circuit. It acts much like an equalizer with a switchable gain fixed at 45Hz. Use this
feature to tune low-frequency audio response to compensate for a less than ideal subwoofer enclosure design. The added boost produces rich, full bass tones that are normally difficult to reproduce in the car audio environment. NOTE: If Bass Boost is
undesired, set Bass Boost to OFF.
• X-Over Mode Switches - These switches are equipped with 12dB per octave electronic filters for precise frequency attenuation with minimal phase distortion. Each
filter is activated by sliding the X-Over Mode Switch to either HP or LP.
• Speaker Level Inputs - These provide connections for a high-level stereo source.
These connections are provided for installations when the source unit does not have
RCA outputs.
WARNING:
When using the speaker (high-level) inputs, the Black wire must be grounded at the radio.
Failure to do so will result in noise and/or improper operation.

SETTING THE GAIN
After completing the installation, follow these steps to set the Gain Control and then
perform the Final System Checks.
1. Turn the Gain Control all the way counter-clockwise.
2. Select the proper input voltage as described on page 7, (Gain Control with
Selectable Input Voltage)
3. Turn the vehicle’s Ignition Switch to the ON position. Then turn the ON/OFF
Switch on the source unit to the ON position. Set all Tone or Equalization Controls
to “flat” positions and turn Loudness off.
4. Play a CD or Tape and set the Volume Control at 75% of full level.
NOTE: If the system uses an equalizer set all frequency controls to the “flat”
position.
5. Slowly increase the Gain Control. Stop when you hear a slight distortion of audio.
SETTING THE CROSSOVER
The Clarion amplifiers feature fully adjustable crossovers. To set the crossovers, follow these steps:
1. Using the X-Over Mode Switch, select the desired mode: LP for Low Pass, HP for
High Pass or OFF for Full Range.
2. Using the Freq (Hz) Selection Control, select the desired frequency.
SETTING THE BASS BOOST
1. Initially set the Bass Boost control to its OFF position.
2. Listen to a variety of music styles (e.g., Rock, Rap, etc.) and switch the Bass Boost
control ON until a noticeable increase in low bass response is realized.
SETTING
CAUTION: If you hear a “pop” (due to speaker over-excursion) adjust switch to
lower the Bass Boost to prevent speaker damage.

APX640.4/640.2/320.2/DPX1001.1
FINAL SYSTEM CHECKS
1. Start the engine and turn on the source unit. After a two-second delay, slowly
increase the volume control and listen to the audio. If you hear any noise, static, distortion or no sound at all, check the connections, and also refer to troubleshooting
section below. Depending on your system design, the levels may become quite loud
even at low volume control settings. Until you get an “audio feel” of the system’s
power, use care when adjusting controls.
2. Turn the balance controls to their extreme positions and listen to the results. Audio
output should match control settings (audio from the left speaker when balance is
left).
3. Increase the volume and verify that the amplifier reproduces audio (at full frequencies) without distortion. If you hear distortion, check the connections and verify that
the gain control is set correctly. Another possibility is damaged speakers or underpowered speakers. Once again refer to troubleshooting section for additional help.
TROUBLESHOOTING
Problem
No Audio.
Solution
Low or no remote turn-on voltage: Check remote connections at amplifier and source
unit.
Blown amplifier fuse: Replace with new fast-blow fuse (same rating).
Power wires not connected: Check battery and ground wiring at amplifier; also check
battery connections.
Speaker leads shorted: Check speaker continuity to ground, it should not show a common ground.
Speakers not connected or are blown: Check speaker connections at amplifier, measure
coil impedance.
TROUBLESHOOTING
Problem
Audio cycles on and off.
Solution
Thermal protection circuits are shutting amplifier off: Check location for adequate
ventilation; consult an authorized Clarion Audio Dealer.
