PREPARATION
SUPPLIED HARDWARE
Your amplifier comes with the following items. Be sure you locate everything shown
before you store or dispose of the packing materials.
(illustration - show all amplifier parts, wires, and hardware)
BEFORE YOU BEGIN THE INSTALLATION
Before you install your amplifier, read all the instructions in this owner’s manual.
And, you should be able to answer all of these questions about your vehicle’s electrical and autosound systems.
• Does my vehicle have an autosound system, such as a car stereo or CD
player, already installed? (You must have an existing autosound system to use
this amplifier.)
• How do I connect a wire to the fuse box?
• Which of the autosound system’s wires is the power wire?
• Which of the autosound system’s terminals are low-level outputs and which are
high-level (speaker) outputs?
Also, be aware that installation in your vehicle might require cutting or modifying
your vehicle.
4
12-2015.fm Page 5 Tuesday, July 13, 1999 3:47 PM
Choosing a Mounting
Location
A good location for mounting the amplifier is in your vehicle’s trunk. Wherever you decide to mount it, choose a
location that:
• Does not interfere with the vehicle’s operation
• Lets you drill mounting holes without damaging other vehicle components
• Allows enough space around the
cooling fins for proper airflow and
cooling
• Lets you easily see the amplifier’s
POWER and PROTECTION indicators
Warning: The amplifier gets very hot
while it is on. Do not touch the amplifier
or place flammable objects near it
while it is on.
Preparing the Mounting Area
Before you mount the amplifier, make
sure you have all the materials you
need, such as an adapter harness,
additional wire, shielded audio cables,
and 16- or 18-gauge marked or colorcoded wires.
Then confirm that the amplifier fits in
your vehicle’s available mounting area. This amplifier requires a 2 1/16-inch
high by 10-inch wide by 121/8-inch deep
(5.2 ¥ 25.4 ¥ 30.8 cm) mounting area
with adequate ventilation space.
Routing Cables and Wires
Avoid routing the connection cables
and any speaker wires near moving
parts or sharp edges. You can usually
route wires and cables along the wiring
channel beneath the vehicle’s door facings by carefully removing the molding
that holds the carpet in place. After
routing the cables and wires, replace
the molding.
INSTALLATION ORDER
For trouble-free installation, simply follow the sections in this Owner’s Manual in order. First, temporarily connect
the amplifier to:
1
Ground and power
2
Your autosound system’s outputs
3
Your speakers
Then test the connections. When you
verify that everything works as expected, disconnect the amplifier, mount it in
your vehicle, and reconnect it.
Caution: If you do not make the connections in the order shown, damage
to the amplifier and your autosound
system is possible if any wire connections are made incorrectly.
Note: For easier installation, mark
each wire you plan to connect with the
name of the terminal you will connect
it to.
5
12-2015.fm Page 6 Tuesday, July 13, 1999 3:47 PM
BEFORE YOU MAKE THE
CONNECTIONS
The supplied connection cables include all the lead wires you need to
connect the amplifier to ground, power,
and your existing autosound system.
Cautions:
• For added safety and to protect
your amplifier and autosound system, disconnect the cable from
your vehicle’s negative (–) battery
terminal before you begin.
Important:
• Do not cut these wires. If you cut
any wire, you cannot obtain a
refund or exchange on this product. However, RadioShack will
provide warranty service if you cut
a wire and find the product is
defective.
• If the connectors on your vehicle’s
autosound system are not compatible with the amplifier’s connectors, you might need an
adapter harness to complete the
connections. RadioShack stores
sell adapter harnesses for most
vehicles.
You might need additional wire, depending on your individual autosound
system, to complete the connections.
Your local RadioShack store carries a
full line of wire and wire management
accessories.
6
• Be sure your front speakers can
handle as much as 20 watts per
channel and your rear speakers
as much as 55 watts per channel
of power. Each speaker must
have an impedance of at least 4
ohms. Your local RadioShack
store carries a full line of speakers.
To make it easier to gauge wire length
and connect the amplifier, temporarily
place the amplifier as close as possible
to the selected mounting location.
12-2015.fm Page 7 Tuesday, July 13, 1999 3:47 PM
CONNECTING GROUND AND
SWITCHED/PRIMARY POWER
Follow these steps to connect the amplifier to ground, switched power, and
primary power.
1. If you have not done so already,
disconnect the cable from your
vehicle’s negative (–) battery terminal.
2. Use a screwdriver to connect the
spade end of the supplied black
ground wire to the amplifier’s GND
(ground) terminal.
3. Connect the black ground wire’s
other end to a chassis ground,
such as a metal bolt attached to a
metal part of the vehicle’s frame.
Be sure the bolt is not insulated
from the chassis by a plastic part.
4. Use a screwdriver to connect the
spade end of the supplied blue/
white wire to the amplifier’s REM
(remote power) terminal.
7
12-2015.fm Page 8 Tuesday, July 13, 1999 3:47 PM
5. Connect the blue/white wire’s
other end to your autosound system’s switched power lead using
one of the supplied twist-on terminal connectors.
(illus)
This connection turns on the
amplifier when you turn on the
autosound system, and turns off
the amplifier when you turn off the
autosound system. This prevents
your vehicle’s battery from being
drained if you leave your amplifier
on when you turn off your autosound system.
If your autosound system does
not have a switched power lead,
connect the blue/white wire’s
other end to a point in your vehicle’s fuse block that has power
only when you turn on the ignition
or turn the key to ACC.
This connection turns on the
amplifier when you turn on the
ignition or turn the key to ACC,
and turns off the amplifier when
you turn off the ignition. This prevents your vehicle’s battery from
being drained if you leave your
amplifier on when you turn off the
ignition.
8
6. Use a screwdriver to connect the
spade end of the supplied red
power cable (with in-line fuse
holder) to the amplifier’s + 12V terminal.
7. Connect the other end of the red
power cable to your vehicle’s positive (+) battery terminal as shown.
Then tighten the terminal.
(illus)
Caution: Due to the amplifier’s
high current requirement, you
must connect the red power
cable’s fused end directly to the
vehicle’s positive (+) battery terminal or damage to your vehicle’s
wiring could result.
Do not reconnect your vehicle’s negative (–) battery cable yet.
12-2015.fm Page 9 Tuesday, July 13, 1999 3:47 PM
CONNECTING INPUTS
LOW-LEVEL INPUTS
You can connect your autosound system’s low-level line out jacks to the amplifier’s low-level line in jacks.
If your autosound system does not have low-level line out jacks, see “High Level
(Speaker Wire) Inputs” on Page 11 to connect your amplifier.
1. Temporarily place the amplifier as close as possible to the selected mounting
location.
2. If your autosound system has four separate line out jacks , connect the autosound system to the amplifier as shown:
(illus)
Note: For the best results, use shielded audio cables such as Cat. No. 42-2368
(not supplied).
9
12-2015.fm Page 10 Tuesday, July 13, 1999 3:47 PM
If your autosound system has two line out jacks (left and right), connect the
autosound system to the amplifier as shown:
(illus)
Note: For the best results, use shielded audio Y-adapters such as Cat. No. 422435 (not supplied).
10
12-2015.fm Page 11 Tuesday, July 13, 1999 3:47 PM
HIGH-LEVEL (SPEAKER
WIRE) INPUTS
If your autosound system does not
have low-level line out jacks but has
only speaker outputs, connect your
autosound system’s speaker outputs
to the amplifier’s HIGH INPUT jacks.
• If your autosound system has four
speaker outputs, see “Four
Speaker Outputs” on Page 12 to
connect your system’s speaker
outputs to the amplifier using
either a floating or common
ground connection.
Note: A floating ground connection
lets the amplifier provide more power
to each speaker, but requires that you
connect a separate wire to each
speaker terminal. A common ground
connection lets you use fewer wires to
connect the speakers to the amplifier,
but reduces the amount of power supplied to the speakers from the amplifier.
Use the supplied wire harnesses and
the supplied twist-on terminal connectors to make the appropriate connections.
• If your autosound system has two
speaker outputs, see “Two
Speaker Outputs” on Page 13 to
connect your system’s speaker
outputs to the amplifier using either a floating or common ground
connection.

CONNECTING
SPEAKERS
You can connect two or four speakers
to the amplifier and your autosound
system.
Preparing the Speaker Wires
Caution: You must connect a separate wire to each speaker terminal as
described in the following procedures.
Only use a common ground wire or
chassis ground if your autosound system is wired for it.
Notes:
• We recommend you use 16- or 18gauge marked or color-coded
wires to help you correctly connect
the speakers to your amplifier.
• Color-coded wires have a stripe
running down one of the conductors or different colored insulation
for each conductor. Your local
RadioShack store has a wide
selection of speaker wire to
choose from.
• For the maximum bass response
and the best overall performance,
keep your speakers properly
phased (connect + to + and – to –).
14
1. With the speakers placed in their
approximate locations, run one
wire from each speaker to the
amplifier.
If you are connecting a subwoofer,
run two wires from each of the
subwoofer’s terminals to the
amplifier.
2. Separate each wire’s two conductors at both ends for a length of
about 4 inches.
3. Strip the insulation from the ends
of each conductor to expose 1/4
inch of wire. Twist the ends to
secure loose strands.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Your Optimus XL-150 High Power 4-Channel Stereo Amplifier is an example of superior design and craftsmanship. The following suggestions will help you care for
your amplifier so you can enjoy it for years.
Keep the amplifier dry. If it gets wet, wipe it dry immediately. Liquids
might contain minerals that can corrode the electronic circuits.
Keep the amplifier away from dust and dirt, which can cause premature wear of parts.
Handle the amplifier gently and carefully. Dropping it can damage circuit boards and cases and can cause the amplifier to work improperly.
Wipe the amplifier with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking
new. Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to clean the amplifier.
Modifying or tampering with the amplifier’s internal components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate your amplifier’s warranty and void your FCC authorization to operate it. If your amplifier is not performing as it should, take it to your local
RadioShack store for assistance.
THE FCC WANTS YOU TO KNOW
Your amplifier might cause TV or radio interference even when it is operating properly. To determine whether your amplifier is causing the interference, turn off your
amplifier. If the interference goes away, your amplifier is causing it. Try to eliminate
the interference by:
• Moving your amplifier away from the receiver
• Contacting your local RadioShack store for help
