“Limited Warranty”
What This Warranty Covers
This is a "Limited" warranty. This warranty covers any defects in materials and workmanship and warranty only applies
to the original purchaser and is not transferable. This warranty is also only valid if the original purchase was made from
an authorized Wet Sounds™ dealer.
How Long Coverage Last
This warranty runs for one year from the date of the purchase. It is recommended to REGISTER your warranty online
within 45 days of your purchase at www.wetsounds.com - click on "warranty registration".
What Is Not Covered
This warranty does not cover fading or discoloration caused by exposure to sunlight or chemicals such as ammonia,
household bleach, or any cleaning material that contains abrasive substances. (For information on how to prevent fading
or discoloration, consult for recommendations on cleaning products) Wet Sounds, Inc. does not cover the cost for removal
and reinstallation of any kind. Additionally, shipping TO Wet Sounds, Inc. is covered by the purchaser This warranty is
void and inapplicable if Wet Sounds™ deems that the product was abused or misused; including but not limited to
Speaker product that has been improperly-powered (under or over powered), causing thermal (burnt voice coil) and/or
mechanical failure (torn surrounds or spiders), damage caused by accident, mishandling, improper installation,
negligence, normal wear and tear, excessive water or heat damage, freight damage or products that have been altered in
any way. Product owned by anyone other than the original purchaser from an authorized Wet Sounds dealer. (The
warranty is not transferable and will not apply to products purchased from unauthorized dealers.) Wet Sounds is not
responsible for any damages to a consumer's boat or person from a product failure. The warranty is void if Wet Sounds

IMPORTANT! BEFORE MAKING ANY CONNECTIONS, DISCONNECT THE BATTERY POWER UNTIL THE
INSTALLATION IS COMPLETED TO AVOID POSSIBLE DAMAGE TO THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM.
Connect the amplifier to the battery.
At times, the amplifier will need to draw large levels of current that cannot be provided by any circuit in the vehicle's
fuse box. We recommend using a min of 8 gauge (4ga is preferred) power wire for your connections . Strip one
end of the wire to connect to the terminal on the amplifier marked +BATT. Loosen the screw terminal and connect
the bare wire and tighten. Use caution to make sure no stray wire stands come in contact with surrounding
terminals to cause any short circuits. Run the wire directly to the positive terminal of the vehicle's battery. Make
sure to use an in-line fuse within 12” of the vehicle's battery to protect the electrical system and amplifier against
short circuits and/or power surges.
Connect the ground terminal of the amplifier to the negative of the battery.
For the ground connection, use a min of 8 gauge wire (black)(4ga is preferred) to connect to the terminal marked
GND and then connect it to the negative of the battery.
Connect the remote terminal of the amplifier to a switchable +12V source.
This connection allows the amplifier to be turned on and off with the power control of the radio. If the radio has a
REMOTE output terminal, connect it to the amplifier's terminal marked REM (using a 16 gauge wire or heavier).
Now when the radio is turned on, the amplifier will automatically turn on.
Connect the RCA output of the head unit to the RCA input terminals of the amplifier.
To make these connections, we recommend using high quality RCA cable. Run signal wires away from electrical
wires to avoid possibility of induced noise from the car's electrical system (i.e. popping noises or engine noise).
AUTO TURN ON SWITCH
The “REM” setting is the best way to turn the unit on and off but if you do not have a REMOTE output wire from your
head-unit then you will need to use either the “AUDIO” or “DC OFFSET” setting. Not all head-units are the same
this is why we provide three different Turn On options. You will need to select the setting that works best with your
head-unit. ( The AUDIO & DC OFFSET setting are to be used with the Hi-level connections below.
The “REM” setting is used when your head-unit has a +12V output wire.
AUTO
TURN ON
REM
DC OFFSET
The “DC OFFSET” setting senses the voltage change when the head-unit is turned on and off
and does not depend on music as the AUDIO setting above. Must use Hi-level input for this
setting.
AUDIO
The “AUDIO” setting senses the music signal to turn on the amplifier. This setting will work
with any head-unit. In this setting the amplifier will only turn on when it senses music, so even
if your head-unit is on but at “0” volume the amplifier will not turn on. Must use RCA input for
this setting.
HI-LEVEL CONNECTIONS
If your head-unit does not have RCA connections then you will need to use the Hi-level input connector (provided)
First locate either your front or rear speaker wires.
Connect the White wire to the Left + speaker wire.
Connect the White / Black wire to the Left - speaker wire.
Connect the Gray wire to the Right + speaker wire.
Connect the Gray / Black wire to the Right - speaker wire.

Before connecting the remote, it will be necessary to find a mounting location
that will be easy to access for adjustment. Once you select your mounting
location, you will need to run the control wire from the remote to the amplifier. To
avoid possibility of induced noise from the vehicle's electrical system (i.e.
popping noises or engine noise), run the cable from the remote to the amplifier
away from the vehicle's electrical wiring.

The gain sensitivity control for the amplifier is located on the front panel. This gain control has
been included to allow adjustment to properly match the output of the radio. This is one of the most
misunderstood adjustments. By rotating the control in the clockwise direction, the amplifier‘s
input will become more sensitive and the music will play louder. This is not a volume control and
MIN
MAX
you will not get more power out of the amplifier in the maximum position! It may seem
to deliver more output, but actually the system is only playing louder faster as you turn the volume control on the
radio. Ideally, to properly level match the system the goal is to achieve maximum output from the amplifier without
distortion at about 3/4 of the volume control.
To determine if the amplifier’s gain is set properly, turn the system on and slowly increase the volume control. You
should be able to use about 3/4 volume before the system gets loud but without distortion. It is very important
when making these adjustments that you do not over drive the speakers (at point of distortion) which will cause
permanent damage to the speakers. If you are unable to achieve 3/4 volume before distortion you will need to
adjust the gain control (in this case you would reduce the gain). The gain control should be adjusted very slowly. It
may help to have another person to assist you by adjusting the gain controls while you listen for distortion.

The amplifier is equipped with a built-in variable crossover network which allows you to select
the crossover point. If you are using this with another amplifier which has a Hi-pass setting
you may want to match or slightly over-lap the x-over points.

The amplifier is equipped with a built-in variable bass boost network which allows you to select

frequencies. Again there is no specific setting for this and your preference should be the
deciding factor for the level setting.
