1. LL.E.D.. POWER INDICA
INDICATOR:
This indicator lights up when the unit is properly powered and the source unit is turned on.
2. POWER CONNECTIONS:
B+ terminal: connect to a positive 12 volt source
Remote terminal: connect to remote turn-on of the radio or ignition switch when a remote turn on is not available.
GND: connect to the vehicle's chassis using the same point of ground as other system components.
3. RCA INPUTS PORTS:
This accepts the input signal from the source unit via RCA cables.
4. HIGH LEVEL INPUTS:
This accepts the input signal through the use of speaker leads from the source unit when RCA's are not provided by the source unit.
5. HIGH LEVEL INPUTS GAIN CONTROL:
This knob allows the adjustment of the input sensitivity for the high level inputs to provide maximum gain control for the output.

POWER CONNECTIONS
Before connecting anything, be sure to disconnect the ground from your battery to prevent any damage to the audio components. All
components should be hooked up before the battery is reconnected .
B+
Connect to this terminal a positive 12 volt lead using the same source of power used to power your amplifiers. This should eliminate any
chance of picking up noise due to voltage differences. If you decide to run the power wire for the crossover directly to the battery, be sure to
add an inline fuse holder containing a 1 amp fuse at the battery in case of a short. Use a minimum of 16 awg stranded copper wire and be sure
to apply grommets whenever the power wire is run through any metal wall.
GND
When grounding your Crossfire CX2L, locate a metal area close to the crossover that is a good source of ground (preferably the floor).
Investigate the area you wish to use for electrical wires, vacuum lines, and brake or fuel lines. Using either a wire brush or sandpaper, eliminate
unwanted paint to supply a better contact when grounding. Use the same gauge wire for ground as you did for the power. Terminate your
ground wire using the correct size ring terminal and attach it to the bare metal using a #8 sheet metal screw. It is important for this connection
to be solid. To complete the job, spread silicon over the screw and bare metal to prevent rust.
REMOTE
Between the power and ground is a remote turn-on terminal. This terminal must be connected to a switched +12 volt source. Typically, remote
turn-on leads are provided by the source unit which will turn on and off the amplifier in correspondence with the source. If a radio does not
have a remote turn-on, then a power antenna wire may be used. Yet, if neither of these leads are available at the source, a switched +12 volt
supply must be used. Run a minimum of 18gauge wire from the amplifier location to the source of the switched +12 volt lead. Remember, it's
best to keep all +12 volt wire ran on one side of the vehicle and away from the RCA cable. Avoid running the wire near sharp edges that may
easily cut through the insulation. Connect the source to the wire. Check your connections by turning on the source. The green light will
illuminate if your connections are correct.

BASS
S LEVEL CONTROL
Is the bass in your vehicle not sufficient for the variety of music you listen to?
Would you like to have more control, say from the front seat of your vehic le?
Well
then, we've the answer for you -- the optional CFR-1 remote bass level control.
The CFR-1 comes in a small metal casing and includes a 20 ft. cable so you can easily mount the unit under the dash and have complete control over your
subwoofers.
The LED illuminates when the system is in the on position so it can be easily located at night.
All this and an installation time of approxima tely
fifteen minutes.
Connecting the CFR-1 is easy. This kit is small enough to be mounted under the dash, in the center console, or even the glove box. Use the CFR-1 as a templat e
and drill two 1/8" holes for mounting.
Use the screws supplied in the kit to mount the unit.
After mounting the CFR-1, run the twenty foot section of cable to the
CX2L. Plug this end into the port labeled "REMOTE." Turn the lowpass level control on the CX2L up just a little from your initial setting.
Enjoy the music!
