Kinetic DAA-7002
Purpose
The Kinetic DAA-7002 adaptor is designed to split the output of passive (unamplified) FM/AM car aerials to enable the mobile reception in vehicles of Digital Audio Broadcasts (DAB / DAB+ / DMB-A) in Band III (174-224 MHz - as used in most countries) by DAB
receivers fitted with a male SMB connector. It is unsuitable for any other purpose. For information about which Bands are used in
which country, please see http://www.wohnort.org/dab.
Preparation
Before proceeding, please ensure that you have read and understood all the instructions and WARNINGS below. If you are in any
doubt, please consult your retailer or arrange professional installation.
Installation
Since some reception issues may only become apparent when the vehicle is in motion it is recommend that before permanent
installation you carefully road-test the adaptor to your satisfaction by temporary connection.
For best reception performance, the cables between the aerial and the adaptor should be as short as possible.
With existing, front-mounted aerials (short of cutting and joining the aerial cable - definitely NOT recommended unless you are a
wizard) this usually means installing the adaptor behind the radio. Please refer to your car’s or car radio’s instructions as to how
to gain access to your receiver’s connections.
With existing, rear-mounted aerials, it is often possible to disconnect the FM /AM cable close to the aerial.
The Kinetic DAA-7002 has four connections:
(1)
(2)
(3)
(4)
DIN female, which must be connected to the (passive) FM/AM car aerial,
DIN male, which must be connected to the car radio FM/AM input
SMB female, which must be connected to the car radio DAB input
Red power cable, which must be connect to a 12 v supply.
The supposed +12V switched output from many radios is rather low. It is best, therefore, to connect the adaptor’s red power
cable to the switched power supply (normally red) to the radio, not to the switched power supply (normally blue) from the radio.
Ideally the connection should be via a 0.5 amp in-line fuse.
Connector adaptors and DAB extension cables are available from your dealer if required.
If your radio has switchable DAB aerial ‘phantom power’, ensure it’s switched ‘Off’. Please refer to your car radio’s instructions as
to how to carry this out.
Many aerials give best DAB reception at about 30cm long so, if the length of the aerial you connect to can be adjusted, it’s worth
experimenting. When shortening telescopic aerials, always push the uppermost section in first.
