iPod Connectivity
In 2005, Clarion established a new benchmark
in Apple iPod connectivity with the release of
the VRX755VD and CCA649 (iPod audio control interface cable). This revolutionary multimedia source unit provided seamless operation
and control of the iPod with GUI (graphical
user interface) controls similar to those found
on the iPod. Not only did it control iPod while
connected, but it also recharged the internal
battery of the iPod. For those with a conventional CeNET source unit, Clarion offered the
EA1251B (CeNET black box interface). This
black box iPod interface allowed iPod users
to connect their iPod to CeNET source units
manufactured as far back to 2001. It essentially converted the iPod into an electronic CD
changer, as it required the creation of “Clarion”
playlists. Unlike a typical CD with an average
of 14 songs, each “Clarion” playlist was capable of storing up to 99 songs. Thus eliminating
scratched discs and trying to find the appropriate jewel case.
In 2006, Clarion introduced the VRX765VD
and MAX675VD multimedia command stations to the market place. Coincidentally, it
corresponded to the release of the Apple iPod
capable of video playback. Like it predecessor
the CCA649, the newly released CCA673 (iPod
audio control / video playback interface cable)
not only provided iPod audio control, but video
playback as well.
Multimedia stations weren’t the only category
to receive an iPod connectivity makeover.
CeNET source units, including CeNET marine
source units, took advantage of the new iPod
interface that didn’t require special playlists
and offered song selection sorted by song
title, album, artist, composer, genre, or playlist.
The EA1276B (CeNET iPod black box interface) provided the iPod integration people had
longed for.
In 2007, the continued growth of the multimedia category brought forth the release of
two additional multimedia control stations and
the introduction of two additional iPod interfaces. New for 2007 were the VRX775VD and
VRX575USB with the MAX675VD carrying over
from the previous model year. The VRX775VD
and MAX675VD utilized the CCA673, while
the VRX575USB uses the CCA691 (iPod audio
control / video playback interface cable).
These combinations of products provided
audio iPod control and video playback without
compromising sound quality and ease of use.
Since technology never stands still, the
EA1276B was replaced with the CCAIPOD
(CeNET iPod interface). Although they both
offered the same iPod audio playback and
song selection, the differences were evident in
their size and ease of installation. No longer
was it necessary to find a place for a bulky
black box.
A major turning point in iPod connectivity
came about in 2008. With a complete new
line-up of multimedia and CD source units.
With Clarion’s dominating presence in the multimedia category, six new multimedia stations
were introduced two of which are iPod direct
connect. But the innovations didn’t stop there;
as four new CD source units were introduced
offering USB iPod direct connect as well.
USB iPod direct connect allows iPod owners to connect their iPod with a standard USB
to iPod connector cable. The cable typically
included with the purchase of an iPod.
For the extremist, the VRX785BT and
MAX685BT offer both USB iPod direct connect
for audio control or audio control and video
playback with the CCA723 (iPod audio control
/ video playback interface cable). With their
advanced features and navigation capabilities, it is understandable why these units are
desired amongst the extremists.
The VRX585USB and VRX385USB offer audio
control and video playback when interfaced
with CCA691 cable. Whether scrolling through
thousand of songs or video files, nothing else
4
Audio Technologies
is required other than a fingertip.
Rounding up the new 2008 multimedia category are the VRX485VD and MAX385VD.
These multimedia control stations offer iPod
audio control and video playback when interfaced with the CCUIPOD1 (iPod audio control
/ video playback interface cable). An evident
sign of Clarion quality can be observed by the
exceptional audio/video playback and ease of
operation.
USB iPod direct connect also took center
stage when it came to CD source units with
four of them with USB iPod direct connectivity.
No black box or interface cable required!
Virtually from the beginning of the Apple iPod
reign, Clarion was at the forefront of iPod connectivity. By offering consumers GUI’s mimicking those commonly found on their iPod on
multimedia command stations with high speed
song and playlist search capabilities. And the
ability to utilize their existing Clarion CD source
units dating back as far as 2001 with their
iPod.

Bluetooth Basics
Bluetooth wireless technology is a short-range
communications technology intended to replace
the cables connecting portable and/or fixed
devices while maintaining high levels of security.
The Bluetooth specification defines a uniform
structure for a wide range of devices to connect
and communicate with each other.
Bluetooth technology has achieved global
acceptance such that any Bluetooth enabled
device, almost everywhere in the world, can connect to other Bluetooth enabled devices in proximity.
Bluetooth enabled electronic devices connect
and communicate wirelessly through shortrange, ad hoc networks known as piconets. Each
device can simultaneously communicate with up
to seven other devices within a single piconet.
Each device can also belong to several piconets
simultaneously. Piconets are established dynamically and automatically as Bluetooth enabled
devices enter and leave radio proximity.
A fundamental Bluetooth wireless technology
strength is the ability to simultaneously handle
both data and voice transmissions. This enables
users to enjoy variety of innovative solutions
such as a hands-free headset for voice calls,
printing and fax capabilities, and synchronizing
PDA, laptop, and mobile phone applications to
name a few.
Bluetooth Profiles
Advanced Audio Distribution Profile
(A2DP)
A2DP describes how stereo quality audio
can be streamed from a media source to a
sink. A2DP defines the protocols and procedures that realize distribution of audio content of high quality in mono or stereo on ACL
channels. The term “advanced audio”, therefore, should be distinguished from “Bluetooth
audio”, which indicates distribution of narrow
band voice on SCO channels as defined in
the baseband specification.
Audio/Video Remote Control Profile
(AVRCP)
AVRCP is designed to provide a standard
interface to control TVs, hi-fi equipment, or
other to allow a single remote control (or
other device) to control all the A/V equipment
that a user has access to. It may be used in
concert with A2DP.
AVRCP defines how to control characteristics
of streaming media. This includes pausing,
stopping and starting playback and volume
control as well as other types of remote control operations.
Hands-Free Profile (HFP)
HFP describes how a gateway device can
be used to place and receive calls for a
hand-free device. A typical configuration
is an automobile using a mobile phone for
a gateway device. In the car, the stereo is
used for the phone audio and a microphone
is installed in the car for sending outgoing
audio. HFP is also used for a personal computer to act as a speakerphone for a mobile
phone in a home or office environment.
Headset Profile (HSP)
The HSP describes how a Bluetooth enabled headset should communicate with a
computer or other Bluetooth enabled device
such as a mobile phone. When connected
and configured, the headset can act as the
remote device’s audio input and output interface.

Object Exchange (OBEX)
OBEX is a transfer protocol that defines data
objects and a communication protocol two
devices can use to exchange those objects.
OBEX is designed to enable devices supporting infrared communication to exchange
a wide variety of data and commands in a
resource-sensitive standardized fashion. The
OBEX protocol also defines a folder-listing
object, which is used to browse the contents
of folders on remote device. OBEX enables
applications to work over the Bluetooth technology protocol stack as well as the IrDA
stack. For Bluetooth enabled devices, only
connection-oriented OBEX is supported.
Three application profiles have been developed using OBEX that include SYNC, FTP
and OPP.
Object Push Profile (OPP)
OPP defines the roles of push server and
push client. It is called push because the
transfers are always instigated by the sender
(client), not the receiver (server). OPP focuses on a narrow range of object formats to
maximize interoperability. The most common
acceptable format is the vCard. OPP may
also be used for sending objects such as
pictures or appointment details.

USB Connectivity
For 2008, USB connectivity was the focal point
in the development of eleven multimedia and CD
source units. USB connectivity provides easy
music transporting from your computer via USB
Mass Storage Device (a.k.a. jump drives) or compatible music player to your Clarion source unit.
In selected source units, it also provides USB
iPod Direct Connect connectivity. Allowing iPod
owners to connect their iPod using an USB cable
with direct access to playlist, albums, artists,
composers, or songs.
An additional advantage of Clarion USB ports is
they’re all powered. What does this mean? This
means it can be
used to recharge the
battery of commonly
used devices such
as cellular phones,
portable navigation
units, iPods, and
more through the
USB port.
Multimedia Source Units:
MAX685BT (rear USB port, USB iPod Direct Connect)

NOTE:
USB Mass Storage Class devices (a.k.a. jump
drives) that require special software or contain
software drivers may not be detected when connected to USB equipped source units. Check
the manufacturer’s specification before proceeding.
SD Card Connectivity
Storage devices come in all shapes and sizes,
but one of the most commonly used is the SD
(Secure Digital) Memory Card. Smaller than a
pack of matches, these media storage devices
can store thousands of songs. Clarion offers
three source units capable of SD memory card
playback: FB275BT, FB275BTB, and DFZ675MC
12
Audio Technologies
All three source units allow users to scroll
through files and folders with same features usually associated with CD playback. Features like,
fast forward, fast rewind, scan play, folder scan,
repeat play, folder repeat play, and random play.
In addition, the ability to display folder name, file
name, album name, or artist name for easy identification of what’s playing
Clarion philosophy on SD memory cards is simple, “load ‘em, play ‘em!”
NOTE:
It is recommended not to use SD memory cards
exceeding 1GB.
Auxiliary Inputs
For 2008, Clarion’s multimedia, CD source units,
and Marine source units all feature an adjustable
sensitivity auxiliary input. Thus eliminating the
crude and inferior FM modulation of an external
audio source. Whether connecting a Bluetooth
interface, portable music player, satellite radio
receiver, video game station, video player, or computer is simple. Merely connect a standard audio
cable for the audio source into the auxiliary input
on the source unit.
To ensure excellent sound quality and matching
the audio levels through the various sources on
head unit, Clarion incorporated an auxiliary level
sensitivity adjustment. This eliminates variations
in volume while switching from the internal audio
sources to an external audio source. In addition,
it minimizes the audio clipping which can generate
distortion and other unwanted noise.
No matter the source, Clarion has you connected.

OEM Remote Ready
With more and more vehicles featuring radio controls integrated in the steering wheel, it is more
important than ever to offer aftermarket source
units capable of interfacing with them. That’s
why Clarion offers a host of multimedia control
stations and CD source units with the capability of adding a third party OEM steering wheel
remote interface.
Load your favourite CD, hit record, and in 1/4 the
time it takes to listen to the song, Music Catcher II
has stored it in its flash memory IC.
By using the Music Catcher System, no longer is
there a need to carry around fragile CD storage
cases, or risk damage to your favourite CD.
These third party interfaces utilize the key functions found on the steering wheel, such as
volume, mute, seek, track, band, and source
controls. By allowing the driver to control the primary functions of the source unit from the steering wheel, it minimizes distractions and removal
of the hand from the steering wheel to adjust the
source unit.

Music Catcher II
Clarions evolved Music Catcher System II can be
found on the DFZ675MC. Music Catcher II, which
utilizes an on-board flash memory module, allows
one to record, play and erase up to 13 CDs worth
of music (Music Catcher will not record MP3/WMA
files). Music Catcher offers four recording modes
to choose from, so you can choose between storage capacity and fidelity.
Music Catcher II is also capable of recording
audio at up to 4x normal playback speed, letting
you record your favourite songs faster than ever.
Phone Mute Input
Clarion source units feature a Cell Phone mute
input wire. As discussed previously, this wire
also functions as the Bluetooth Control wire on
Bluetooth Ready source unit models.
In its normal function, when a (-) ground signal is
applied to the brown wire in the radio harness,
the radio will mute the audio output until the (-)
ground signal is removed. This is designed to be
used with Cellular phone car kits.
2008 Bluetooth Ready source units feature a
programming option that will, when enabled,
switch the source unit to the auxiliary input when
(-) ground is applied to the brown wire. This is for
use with the BLT370 Bluetooth Interface.
Navigation Ready
Clarion is a world leader in the development of
GPS Navigation systems, manufacturing OEM
systems for the top car manufacturers in the world,
including Porsche, Nissan, Infiniti, Volkswagen,
Ford and more.
14
Audio Technologies
For 2008, Clarion offers two source units that are
Navigation Ready - the 1-DIN VRX785BT and the
2-DIN MAX685BT. These source units feature an
RGB connection on the back of the radio that
accepts a high resolution video signal from our
NAX980HD Navigation System, as well as programming to provide full touch screen control
over all navigation functions. These source units
will also mute the audio signal to allow navigation
commands to come through loud and clear while
you are driving.
2-Zone Entertainment
Clarion offers four source units that offer 2-Zone
Entertainment. This function allows front seat
passengers to listen to one audio source while
rear seat passengers can enjoy another through
and overhead or headrest monitor with headphones.
The rear seat passengers can enjoy a DVD movie
with the front seat passengers can listen to the
Radio Tuner, iPod or Visual Input. Volume control
over the 2-Zone output is performed by the headphones as the 2-Zone output is line-level.
Please review your source unit owner's manual
for limitations pertaining to 2-Zone functionality
with respect to specific accessories.
CCD Camera Input
The Clarion VRX785BT, MAX685BT, VRX585USB
and VRX385USB feature a dedicated CCD camera input jack on the rear of the source unit. When
connected to the CK625E camera kit, the camera
input will be triggered automatically when the
vehicle is put in reverse. This makes backing up
safe and secure.
15
A/V Inputs
This additional A/V input allows you to connect
and external A/V source such as a video game
system or TV Tuner (TTX005) to your multimedia
source unit. This allows for system expansion
and when combined with the MSS430 Source
Commander A/V Switcher, can be at the heart of
a massive multimedia system.
A/V Outputs
This allows you to connect the output of the
internal DVD player, or Visual input to an external monitor. The A/V output features a line-level
audio signal. The connected device must have
it's own volume control. Compatible devices
include overhead or headrest monitors with wireless headphones.
Video Distribution
Any time a video signal is to be split and connected to multiple vide sources, the use of a proper
electronic video distribution amplifier is required.
The Clarion VA700 provides seven buffered video
outputs from a single composite video input connection.
Using the VA700 will ensure that picture quality remains clear and sharp and the brightness
and contrast levels are not altered. The use of
Y-cables is not an option for splitting a composite
video signal as the signal voltage determines the
black level of the image, and will be altered when
split.
Audio Technologies
Compressed Media Formats
Transmitting audio and data via satellite spawned
the need to various formats of media compression. These formats allow multiple signals to
occupy the same bandwidth as an uncompressed signal. This increased efficiency, reduces
cost and allows more data to be transmitted at
higher speeds.
Clarion is at the forefront of compressed media
file playback. For 2008, Clarion offers support for
AAC, DiVX and MPEG compressed media files to
our already extensive list.
WAVE Format
Wave (.wav) files are considered to be uncompressed. This is file format is used for the storage of 2-channel audio in digital form. The file
is stored in PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) form
and uses the standard 44,100 samples per second, 16 bits per sample times two channels. The
resulting data rate is 1,411.2 kbps.
Microsoft originally claimed that WMA files had
better sound quality than MP3 files recorded at
the same bitrate. Subsequent double-blind testing have repeatedly confirmed that the file formats are very similar.
AAC Format
AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) is another lossy
compression and encoding format for digital
audio. The AAC format has been made popular
as it is the standard format for the Apple iPod.
AAC offers more sample and bitrate options as
compared to MP3 files. Sampling rates from 8
kHz to 96kHz are available) and up to 48 channels
can be encoded.
AAC happens to the default audio codec used on
the PlayStation 3, PSP, the Apple iTunes website
and iPod products.
DivX
MP3 Format
MP3 files gained popularity due to their reduced
file size. MP3 stands for MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3.
MP3 files use perceptual encoding to reduce files
sizes while limiting the effect on sound quality.
The MP3 standard allows for bitrates between
32 kbps and 320 kbps with sampling rates of 32,
44.1 and 48 kHz. A higher bitrate represents less
compression and better (relative to the original)
sound quality.
ID3 Tag Display
ID3 tags were created and inserted at the end
of an MP3 file allow for the storage of metadata
information such as song title, artist, album name,
genre and year.
WMA Format
WMA (Windows Media Audio) is a compressed
audio file format created by Microsoft. It is very
similar in concept to MP3 files, but includes provisions for DRM (Digital Rights Management).
At the forefront of compressed video technology is the DivX codec. The latest version of this
codec, called DivX 6 (or DivX Media Format)
reduces the file size of digital movies while retaining support for multiple audio tracks, interactive
menus, chapter points, multiple video streams
and subtitles.
For 2008, the Clarion VRX785BT, MAX685BT,
VRX385USB and VRX585USB support the DivX
Media Format in its native form. Offering high
quality, fully interactive movie playback. These
units are fully DivX Certified.
CD Text
CD Text is an extension of the standard audio
CD format and allows Album Name, Song Name
and Artist information to be stored on a standard
audio CD. Source units bearing the CD Text logo
are capable of displaying this information from
compatible discs. Not all store-bought CD's are
encoded with CD Text information. Look for the
16
Audio Technologies
CD Text logo on the packaging or disc to confirm
proper encoding.
MPEG 1, 2 and 4
The Motion Picture Experts Group (MPEG) is a
group that oversees the development of video
and audio encoding standards. The various
MPEG standards outline the capabilities of each
compression format.
MPEG-1
This was the initial audio and video compression
standard and later became the standard for the
Video CD. It utilizes MP3 for the audio track.
MPEG-2
The is the standard format for audio and video
broadcast for standard television. It is used for
over-the-air broadcast, as well as Dish Network,
digital cable and with some slight variations, on
DVDs.
MPEG-4
This is an expansion of the MPEG-1 format and
adds the ability to support audio/video objects,
low bitrate encoding, 3D content and support for
Digital Rights Management (DRM)
Video CD
Video CD (VCD) is the standard digital format for
storing video on a compact disc. The VCD format offers a resolution of 352x240 pixels with an
aspect ratio of 107:80 (within 0.3% of 4:3) and a
framerate of 29.97 or 23.976 frames per second
and a bitrate of 1.150 kbps
MP3 on DVD
Storing MP3 files on a DVD provides you with the
ability to have days and days of music on hand,
on a single convenient disc.
Please review the directory structure guidlines in
the owner's manual of each product.

Performance Technologies and Features
Signal Processing
Clarion products remain at the forefront of sound
quality and performance. Our source units have
features that allows your mobile audio system
to recreate sound that is closer to the original
recording than ever before. These features include
advanced signal restoration for compressed audio,
digital equalization, advanced D/A converters and
digital storage systems.
Clarion calls the concept of remaining true to the
original audio recording Sound Genesis. This is at
the heart of everything Clarion does.
Sound Restorer
Compressed audio files allow a large amount of
information to be stored in a small space. The
drawback is that some of the audio information,
particularly in the high frequency range is lost.
The result of Sound Restorer processing is music
that sounds more like the original recording. The
subtle nuances and harmonics are recreated and
your music won't sound like compressed music
any more.
Digital Z-Enhancer
High performance system equalization to compensate for factory speaker performance or vehicle acoustics has never been easier, thanks to
Digital Z-Enhancer.
Clarion's Digital Z-Enhancer features three preset
equalization curves, each with 7 'effect' levels.
The result is 21 different easily accessible curves
to make altering the performance of your audio
system quick, easy and satisfying.
Clarion introduces Sound Restorer - a digital
technology that analyzes a musical waveform for
high frequency content, then recreates harmonics
to restore those lost during compression.

5-Band Parametric Equalizer
Impact - Emphasizes Bass and Treble
B-Boost - Emphasizes Bass
3-Band Parametric Equalizer
This advanced equalization system is found on
the MAX685BT and VRX785BT. A parametric
equalizer allows for advanced and detailed system frequency response adjustment.
The 3-Band Parametric Equalizer allows you to
adjust the bass and midrange for Q-factor (bandwidth), Boost and Center Frequency. Treble is
adjustable only for Boost and Center Frequency.
19
The DRZ9255 features a 5-Band parametric
equalizer. This evolves its flexibility and tuning
features to allow for perfect frequency response
adjustment. The 5-Band parametric equalizer
allows allows for independent left and right channel adjustment. The copy command allows you
to quickly duplicate settings from one channel to
the other. Here are the parameters for the different bands:
Band 1, 2 and 3
Boost: -12dB to +12dB
Q-Factor: 0.5 to 12.0
Frequency: 50Hz to 20kHz
Band 4 and 5
Boost: -12dB to +12dB
Q-Factor: 0.5 to 12.0
Frequency: 630Hz to 20kHz
Q-Factor
The following graphs show the relationship
between center frequency, gain and Q-curve.
When a large Q-Factor number is selected, the Qcurve becomes sharper. When a small Q-Factor
number is chosen, the Q-Curve becomes wide.
The shape of the Q-Curve determines the range
of frequencies the boost or cut will affect.
The calculation that determines the Q-Factor is
based on the center frequency of the equalization, and the bandwidth at the -3dB point.
Performance Technologies and Features
To make adjusting time alignment easy, Clarion
calibrates our two time alingment systems (found
on the DRZ9255 and DXZ785USB) in units of
measure, rather than in units of time. This means
you can simply take out a tape measure and
record the distance from the listener to each
speaker. Fine tuning by a trained ear will result
in an excellent soundstage and realistic audio
performance.
DRZ9255
Magna Bass EX
Conventional loudness circuits boost bass frequencies around 100Hz. This results in a muddy
over-boosted sound which is un-natural. MagnaBass EX focuses the bass boost at 50Hz, adding
warmth and richness to the sound. This 50Hz
boost efffectively extends the frequency response
of smaller speakers, making you system sound
larger and more capable. The result is dynamic
bass performance that sounds real.
The DRZ9255 offers the industries finest time
alignment adjustment steps. You can adjust each
channels delay in 0.7cm (roughly 1/4-inch) steps
to perfectly align the output of each channel.
The DRZ9255 feautres 8 channels of output
(Subwoofer, Low, Mid and High) and both left
and right outputs are adjustable independantly.
The maximum distance is 512.4cm (roughly 201
inches). This is perfect for a three-way front stage
and subwoofer system.
DXZ785USB
This is the little brother to the flagship DRZ9255,
but is still incredibly potent. The time alignment
on this unit is adjustable in 2.3cm (roughly 1 inch)
steps. There are six channels of output on the
DXZ785USB (Low, Mid and High) and of course,
each of the six is adjustable independantly. This
is perfect to a bi-amped (2-way) front stage
plus subwoofer system. The maximum delay is
501.4cm (just under 200 inches).
Electronic Crossovers
Time Alignment
Advanced Digital Signal Processing (DSP) allows
for intricate and complex mathematical functions
to be performed on an audio signal. One of these
advanced functions is Time Alignment.
Time Alignment refers to the ability to adjust the
relative arrival time of one signal as compared to
another.
Electronic crossovers are designed to pass only
a certain range of frequencies through a circuit.
There are two types of eletronic crossovers: HighPass and Low-Pass.
A High-Pass crossover will allow only those frequencies above (higher than) the crossover point
to pass through. This type of crossover is used on
tweeters to protect them from low and midrange
frequencies and on midrange drivers to protect
them from low frequencies.
A Low-Pass crossover will only allow those
20
Performance Technologies and Features
frequencies below (lower than) the crossover
point to pass through. This type of crossover is
used on subwoofers to keep midrange and high
frequencies from being reproduced.
unit to run your speakers, while an amplifier and
subwoofer can handle low frequency output.
Clarion electronic crossovers are all adjustable for
frequency and are easy to implement.
A combination of High- and Low-Pass crossovers
may be used to fliter both and low frequencies
passed to a device such as a midrange or midbass driver. This is called a Band-Pass crossover.
The following chart outlines the crossover functionality in each unit.
There are two important numbers to consider
when considering a crossover - the cutoff frequency - fc and the crossover slope.
The crossover frequency determines the point at
which the filter will start to work. For example, a
High-Pass crossover set to 100Hz will attenuate
the frequencies below 100Hz and pass frequencies above 100Hz.
Crossover slope describes the rate at which the
crossover attenuates those frequencies.
Speakers are designed to operate within a specific range of frequencies. Sending frequencies
to a speaker that it was not designed to handle
reduces its performance and could result in poor
sound quality. For 2008, Clarion includes electronic Low-Pass and High-Pass crossovers on
the DXZ385USB through DXZ785USB source
units.
The electronic crossovers found in Clarion source
units not only affects the pre-amp outputs, but the
signal being sent to the internal amplifier as well.
This means you can use a high-power source

D/A Converters
24-Bit 96kHz
Converting digitally stored information (such as
that found on a Compact Disc or DVD) back into
an analog signal is the job of the D/A Converter.
At its price point - there is nothing like the
DRZ9255 in the industry. It's not just the incredible time alignment, equalization and state of the
art hardware - its got technology too.
The D/A converter reads each 16-bit word from
the disc and assigns it an analog voltage. A conventional D/A Converter repeats this task 44,100
times a second.
The accuracy of the D/A Converter in terms of
voltage and timing are a key component to determining the sound quality capabilities and noise
output of the source unit.
1-Bit
A 1-Bit D/A converter works by comparing one bit
of information to the one previous to it. If the new
bit is higher than the previous one, it increases
the output voltage. If the new bit is lower than the
previous, then it decreases the output voltage. A
filter on the output of the D/A Converter smoothes
out the signal and the result a reproduction of the
original audio waveform.
24-Bit
Clarion source units featuring our 24-Bit D/A converter bring new realism and detail to your music.
24-Bit D/A converters offer several benefits as
compared to a conventional 1-Bit D/A converter.
Primarily, a 24-Bit D/A converter significantly increases dynamic range capability, reduces
quantization error and improves jitter. The result
is music that sounds more realistic, especially
in the high frequency range. Cymbals become
clearer and more detailed. Ambience and room
effects become more accurate. The entire listening experience takes a step forward in fidelity and
authenticity.
This effect can be clearly heard on even the most
basic of audio systems. Comparing one source
unit to another, even when using four factory
speakers will reveal a very significant improvement in performance.
23
The DRZ9255 features a 96kHz 24-Bit D/A converter. Why is this important?
The sampling rate (or how often the D/A converter
converts a digital signal back to analog) defines
the highest frequency that can be reproduced. A
conventional D/A converter operates at 44.1kHz
and as defined by the Nyquest Frequency (the
highest frequency that can be reproduced is half
of the sampling frequency). The highest frequency
that can be reproduced is 22.05kHz.
The 96kHz D/A converter in the DRZ9255 operates at twice this frequency, moving the maximum
reproducible frequency up to 48kHz.
Any time a filter is implemented in a circuit, it not
only affects frequency response, but also phase
response (the relative arrival time of different frequencies). What does this mean for the end-user?
Moving the high frequency roll-off up one octave
higher means that the DRZ9255 can reproduce
high frequencies with coherence, detail and clarity. Clarion was the first company to implement a
96kHz DAC in the car audio industry.

High Voltage Preamp Outputs
CD Operational Safeguards
Noise is bad. From the noise of the wind whistling
past your windows to the hum of your tires on the
road, noise makes it harder for us to enjoy our
music. When it comes to music, having noise in
your system is no fun at all. Clarion offers three
step-up preamp output systems for 2008.
Clarion’s CD operational safeguards allow the CD
mechanism to detect disc size, prior disc-in-drive
detection, foreign object detection, and allow for
auto reload.
6 Volt preamp output provides a 4.5dB reduction in
noise. The DRZ9255 can provide 8Vrms of output
on it's 8 channels. This equates to 6dB less noise
from your amplifiers / system.
Clarion’s CD mechanism uses photosensors and
LEDs to identify 3" or 5" compact discs. Clarion’s
CD mechanism uses a tapered roller to precisely
center the CD onto the drive spindle.
Low Impedance Preamp Output
All Clarion preamp outputs feature low output
impedance drive circuitry. Output impedance is
most commonly looked at in terms of a resistance
measurement, in the case of Clarion preamp outputs, this specification is ~330 Ohms.
This has several effects in terms of sound quality
as compared to products that have high output
impedances (1,000+ Ohms). More of the audio
signal voltage is passed to the load device. The
preamp is capable of driving lower impedance
loads (necessary should RCA Y-cables be used).
The audio signal is less succeptable to frequency
response degradation caused by reactances in the
RCA cables or the input stage of the amplifier or
processor.
Many processors and amplifiers use DC blocking
capacitors on their inputs. When a high-impedance
source unit is connected to these loads, the bass
and treble performance can suffer. Low impedance outputs result in flatter frequency response
and more output from your amplifiers.
A tapered loading-roller precisely centers the CD
onto the drive spindle. Since the roller mechanism
is tapered, only the edges of the CD are touched,
thereby eliminating the possibility of scratches.

Touches CD Edges
CD Mechanism
These operational safeguards allow safer CD disc
handling, prevent jams from accidental loading of
two CDs, and help to reduce service problems
by detecting foreign objects in the drive mechanism.

Zero-Bit Detector Mute
Clarion CD Players feature a zero-bit detection
mute circuit. This circuit turns off (mutes) both the
line-level and speaker-level outputs when it does
not see a digital signal for 750 milliseconds. Since
a digital signal consists of “one” and “zero” bits,
the zero-bit detector will turn off the analog audio
input signal to the preamp section when it sees a
series of zero bits. The purpose of this circuit is to
eliminate tracking noise or background noise that
is typically associated with the decoding of the
digital signal to its final analog form.

R Channel Preamp
Just as with the power ratings, Signal to Noise
(S/N Ratio) measurements will follow similar
guidelines. The S/N Ratio measurement will be
taken at a power level of 1W into a 4 Ohm load.
This means that all device measurements will
be comparable, no matter how much power the
product produces.
MOSFET Power IC
The MOSFET Power IC is smaller and more efficient than previous amplifier designs. MOSFET
amplifiers are capable of producing more power
because the output voltage can be switched
closer to the rail voltage. In a head unit, with only
12V of power being supplied from the cars electrical system, this is critically important to maximizing amplification capabilities.
The solid horizontal lines denote the positive and
negative amplifier power supply rail voltage.
Digital Data Stream 011011011011010000000000000000000000001010101001
The zero-bit detector mutes the preamplifier analog outputs after a series of zero bits exceeds
750-ms. Audio is restored after a period of one
and zero bits is longer than 57 μs.
CEA-2006 Ratings
All new Clarion amplified products have been
rated using the CEA-2006 specification. This
specification was created to allow power production numbers to be compared between one brand
and another without concern for measurement
type.
The CEA-2006 specification states that power
measured using this format will be constant
through the entire specified audio bandwidth
range. The power measurement will be taken with
14.4V being supplied and the distortion from the
output signal can't exceed 1%.

undistorted output from a standard bipolar output
transistor.
The larger sine wave shows the maximum undistorted output from a MOSFET output device.The
net result - more voltage means more power.

Center Channel
Making the installation and integration of a center
channel easier than ever is the SRK604 1-DIN
center channel.
The SRK604 features a pair of 30mm dome midrange drivers and a 20mm dome tweeter. The
SRK604 also includes a 40W amplifier.
The front panel of the SRK604 offers a center
channel level control, as well as a subwoofer level
control for a pass-through RCA signal.
To help explain the concept of the center channel
operating and configuration, we have included a
basic wiring diagram.
You also have the option of running the subwoofer signal in stereo should your source unit provide
a stereo subwoofer signal. The SRK604 does not
include an electronic crossover, only a subwoofer
level control.
High Resolution LCD Displays
All Clarion LCD display screens use the latest in
active matrix technology to give you the brightest, most detailed image available. Thin Film
Transistors (TFT) are attached to each RGB, (red/
green/blue) pixel to provide more control over
the color being reproduced. This method helps
reduce display “white-wash” associated with a
conventional passive-matrix screen, and helps to
ensure optimal picture quality.
By employing a “striped pixel configuration” to
align RGB pixels into columns, we can use more
pixels to enhance details and provide better color
definition. Having the controls for brightness on
the front panel allows easy adjustment of picture
quality.
LCD Display Resolution
Clarions in-dash 7" LCD displays feature a screen
resolution of 1440 x 234 pixels for a total of
336,960 pixels. Some companies try and confuse
you by describing the number of picture elements - each of the red, green and blue picture
elements. By their standards, these units would
have 1,010,880 picture elements. When comparing video displays, make sure the specifications
you are comparing are using the same format.

HMI Concept
Metal Shark Interface
Clarion has long been considered the industry
leader in the development and implementation of
advanced Human Machine Interface designs and
concepts. Back in 2006, Clarion took the HMI
concept to the next level and made it the focus
of the companies products. HMI refers to the
interaction, interconnection and interdependance
of man, music and machine - all while being easy
to use.
Clarion isn't satisfied to sit idly by and watch the
world go by. We are industry leaders in the development of new HMI interfaces. One of the most
distinctive interfaces to come to the mobile electronics industry is the Metal Shark Interface.
Slidetrak
Back for 2008 is the Slidetrak interface. Slidetrak
ushered in a new era in source unit operation and
control, making it easier and safer to use than
ever before.
Found on the FB275BT and FB275BTB, the
Metal Shark interface takes its look from the gills
of the great white shark. These units feature edge
lit buttons and metallic center section with a
vacuum fluorescent display and centrally located
volume control.
The FB275BT and FB275BTB break all stereotypes and define the next evolution of source unit
design.
The large acrylic panel that covers the LCD display on the DXZ585USB and DXZ785USB now
serves as your Seek Up and Seek Down (and
tracking function) control. This panel (known as
the Seek Panel) slides to the left and right to perform these functions. The days of searching for
tiny little tracking and seek buttons is gone.
A significant benefit to the end user of Slidetrak is
ease of use. With the source unit installed in their
vehicle, no longer do they need to take their eyes
off the road to change tracks or radio stations.
Simply 'poke' at the center of the radio, and your
are on to new musical experience.
728 Color Illumination
Intergration with your car means more than simply connecting to your speaker wires - it includes
control and cosmetics. Clarions 728 color illumination allows you to match the radio illumination
to the factory illumination in your car. Not only
does this mean your radio sounds better than the
one that came from the factory, but now it looks
better too!
728 Color illumination can be found on the
DXZ785USB, FB275BT, FB275BTB, UDB275MP
and DFZ675MC source units.

Touch Panel Operation
Ease of use and intuitive operation are behind
our LCD touch panel operation - found on
the VRX785BT, VRX585USB, VRX485USB,
MAX685BT and MAX385VD. Source selection
and control, setup menus and more are accessible by a simple touch of your finger.
Add to that the ability to navigate through DVD
on-screen menus by simply touching the menu
item, and using your multimedia source unit is as
easy as can be.
Clarion 1-DIN source units are capable of being
isntalled in ISO Mount Fashion. This means, no
trim ring is required to install the radio or to have
its detachable control panel function properly and
be removeable.
ISO mounting typically means that factory style
brackets are to be used. Clarion source units feature industry standard mounting holes on the side
of the radio that align perfectly with these brackets. This reduces installation time and improves
the look of the final product.
Many new install kits make use of this ISO mounting technique, allowing radios to be installed so
they look like they belong.
An example of ISO Mounting taken to the next
level.
Dimmer Input
Safety comes in many forms - but being able
to concentrate on your driving is a fundamental
part of the HMI concept. Driving at night adds an
additional level of complexity. To make it as easy
as possible, Clarion includes a dimmer input wire
on many of our source units. When connected to
the factory dash illumination circuit, a signal on
this wire causes the deck to reduce the brightness of the radio display, preventing it from being
a distraction. Safety in the form of simplicity.
ISO Mount Capability
A product designed for easy installation makes
sense, not only for the staff performing the installation, but for the end user as well. When a radio
looks like it belongs in the dash, all the experiences surrounding its operation just seem better.

Message Info
Amp Canceller
Personalization is always on our minds - we want
the right clothes, the right car and the right music
to match our personal style. Clarion knows this,
and has included the Message Info option as one
of the screen savers on our source units. Users
can enter a message, up to 30 characters in
length, and have it scroll across the screen.
Taking your audio system to the next level often
involves the installation of one or more external
amplifiers. If your entire system is being powered by external amplifiers, simply enable the
Amp Canceller feature on your head unit. When
Amp Canceller is engaged, power to the internal
amplifier IC is turned off. This reduces the current
draw of the source unit and improves its sonic
performance.
Instant Station Recall (ISR)
Getting to where you want to go should always
be as easy as simply pressing a button. When it
comes to your favorite radio station, ISR has you
covered. Tune in your favorite radio station, then
press and hold the ISR button. You can choose
AM or FM - it doesn't care. Now, any time you
want, no matter what source you are listening to,
a simple tap of the ISR will return you the programmed radio station.
This is a great feature to use on all-news radio
stations when you want up-to-the-minute traffic
reports.
Key Off Eject
Have you ever forgotten to bring your favorite
CD into the house after arriving home from a trip.
With Clarion's Key Off Eject feature - the disc
eject function works, even when the ignition isn't
turned on. Press eject and the disc pops out.
Last Position Memory
As CD players started to become popular, many
people started to experience inherent drawbacks of this random access storage media. With
a cassette tape - it stays where you left it when
you shut off the power. Then, when you turn it
back on, playback resumes from that same point.
With Clarion's Last Position Memory - the same
is true for your CD player. Turn the car off, do your
shopping, then get back in. Your music picks up
where you left off.

Clarion In-Dash Navigation
The face of in-dash navigation has changed forever with the introduction of the NAX980HD Hard
Disk Drive Navigation System. This system is
based on our revolutionary 3D mapping system
that has won several awards in the Asia.
Raw Power
The NAX980HD was designed from the ground
up for only one task - to provide the best possible navigation accuracy, speed and detail of any
navigation system at any price.
Part of the secret behind the speed of the
NAX980HD is its on-board 3D Graphics processor. Unlike conventional all-in-one navgiation
systems, the NAX980HD doesn't generate the
graphics on the main CPU. This leaves the main
CPU free to do route updates and calculations,
while detailed and smooth graphics are generated by an on-board 3D Graphics Processing
Unit and transmitted to either the Many of our
Multimedia Source Units via a dedicated RGB
video connection.
Information is stored on the NAX980HD on a
40GB mobile hard disk drive. This isn't the same
drive in your laptop. It was designed to withstand
the toughest challenges the mobile environment
can throw at it.
Personalization
From the ability to upload new wallpaper themes
to the NAX980HD (downloadable from www.
clarion.com) to all the different route calculation
options. The NAX980HD will get you were you
want to go. Want to avoid toll roads or highways
alltogether - just select the route planning options
that suit your needs and go to town.
Ease of Use
From the predictive text entry to more than 10
Million Points of Interest - the NAX980HD does
everyting it can to help you get to your destination. Should you stray from the planned route,
instant route recalculations get you back on track
49
- sometimes before you even know you made a
wrong turn.
It Learns
The NAX980HD has the ability to learn your
route preferences. If you have 'taken your way'
instead of following the directions the NAX980HD
provides several times, it will include your preferences in the route planning. Avoid those areas of
traffic congestion or construction without lifting a
finger.
The "favorites menu" lets you access all your
common destinations in an uncommon way. This
fully rendered 3D menu provides animated icons
to make your selection even easier.
Looks Good
The high resolution 2D and 3D graphics displayed
on your compatible MAX or VRX Multimedia
Source Units are fully configurable to provide
as much, or as little information as you desire.
Upcoming turns, distance until next turn, ETA,
Compass and more are just some of the options.
The NAX980HD will even overlay audio information.
No Surprises
Thanks to turn-by-turn voice prompts, an event
distance count-down meter and distance to next
event displays, no turn, exit or lane change is
going to sneak up on you. With the NAX980HD
at your side, you can drive safely and confidently.
Voice prompts are available in English, French
and Spanish, as are the navigation menus.
True Integration
The NAX980HD is based on a navigation system designed for OEM use. This is part of what
makes it so accurate, detailed and easy to use.
The NAX980HD features an on-board Gyro sensor and inputs for VSS, parking brake and reverse
light inputs. The combination of these features
an a high-sensitivity GPS antenna ensure that
the NAX980HD always knows where you are and
which way you are pointed.

Sat Ready for 2008
Sirius Marine Solutions
New 2008 Clarion CeNET compatible source
units are now SAT Radio ready. This means that
you can choose from Sirius or XM Radio - giving
you more than 200 different channels of entertainment to choose from.
As the world leader in marine audio product
design and production, Clarion takes enjoying
satellite radio on the water to the next level with
out marine specific Sirius Satellite Radio package.
How does Satellite Radio work?
K-SIRIUSM - SIRIUS Satellite Radio Receiver
Though the exact mechanism and placement
of satellites varies between XM and Sirius, the
concept is essentially the same. Both companies
operate their own studios and program their own
music. The broadcast is transmitted to a satellite
(or satellites) orbiting above North America. The
tuner in your car receives this digitally transmitted signal and provides you with more than 100
different choices of stations - many of which are
commercial free. Both Sirius and XM are pay-foruse services.
This package includes Clarion’s SC-C1 receiver,
but does not include the automotive antenna.
You must purchase a marine satellite radio antenna for the K-SIRIUSM to work.
K-SIRIUS - SIRIUS Satellite Radio Receiver
This package includes Clarion’s K-SIRIUS receiver and Sirius Antenna and a CeNET cable. The
receiver can be controlled using any CeNETequipped source unit.
SRA25 - SIRIUS Marine Antenna
Features:
• CeNET interface for direct operation by all
SIRIUS-Ready Clarion source units
• CeNET Pass-Through for Connection of CD
Changers and any other Clarion CeNET products.

Satellite Radio - Marine Solutions
SRA40 - SIRIUS Marine Antenna
These are marine specific antennae for use with
the K-SIRIUSM. These antennae are manufactured by Shakespeare and are part of their Galaxy
series of marine antenna products.
The antenna do not require any additional power
connections. The antenna can be mounted to
surfaces up to 1 inch thick .
These antennae includes a 25 foot long low loss
cable with quick disconnect and a gold plated
TMC antenna connector.

2008 Amplifier Line Overview
With a heritage of power, performance and quality that spans many decades, Clarion proudly
introduces our most sophisticated amplifier line
ever. The entire line offers the kind of power and
performance that todays customers demand.
Clarion does not ignore the need for an amplifier to look cool, but we put sound quality and
performance at the top of our list. We will not
forego musical transparency and control for size
or a cosmetic feature, instead we embrace the
latest in power supply technologies to make our
amplifiers simulatenously musical, efficient and
compact.
Clarion amplifiers are developed to compliment
one-another in terms of features, performance
and design. These features exist to help installers
complete the integration of these amplifiers into
a vehicle faster and more accurately. Likewise,
these features also help to improve the performance of the amplifier.
The new 'c Series" amplifiers offer impressive
power offerings from a very compact package.
Furthermore, these amplifiers feature a Class D
design that allows them to produce this power
without putting a significant load on your battery
or requiring a large heat sink to stay cool.

Precise Frequency Selector
Electronic Crossover
The inclusion of an electronic crossover in an
amplifier allows the speaker to receive on the
musical information that it can produce properly.
This means that sound quality from the speaker is
improved and power handling in smaller speakers
is increased dramatically.
One drawback of an electronic crossover which
allows the crossover frequency to be adjusted
through the use of a potentiometer is that it can be
difficult to precisely set the crossover frequency .
This is because the potentiometer is nearly infinitely adjustable. Many crossover controls are only
labelled at the top and bottom of their frequency
range, making selecting a frequency in the middle
of the adjustment range nearly impossible..
Clarion provides a simple and elegant solution
for accurately setting crossover points with our
PFS (Precise Frequency Selector) crossover.
The potentiometer on the APX2181, APX4361,
DPX2251, DPX1851, DPX11551, APX290M and
APX490M amplifiers has 41 detented positions.
Using the supplied charts, you can select a specific crossover frequency, then to set it, turn the
adjustment potentiometer the according number
of clicks, and you are done.
One of the many benefits of this feature surfaces
when you are building a multi-amp system. With
conventional (Non PFS) crossover controls, you
could end up setting a subwoofer amp set to
70Hz when you were aiming for 85Hz and end up
at 100Hz on the mids and highs amp. The result
would be a system that lacks mid-bass dynamics
and makes the bass frequencies sound disconnected from the mids and highs. PFS makes
under/over-lapping of crossovers history.
Amplifiers – Technologies
Input Voltage Selector Gain
Control
Conventional amplifier gain (or sensitivity) adjustment systems have inherent limitations. These
controls utilise ganged or stacked potentiometers
to allow you to match the power production capabilities of the amplifier to the signal strength of the
source unit that is feeding it. To allow an amplifier
to be used with as many different sources as possible, the sensitivity range should be as wide as
possible.
Because the gain control uses several potentiometers that are connected together (ganged), the
exact resistance of each of these devices may not
match the next one. The result is one channel of
the amplifier will be louder than the other. This is
called channel imbalance.
To combat channel imbalance, Clarion has impleted IVS (Input Voltage Selector) technolgoy on the
APX2181, APX4361, DPX2251, DPX1851 and
DPX11551 amplifiers.
IVS dramatically reduces channel imbalance by
implementing a switch that controls the gain
range: 0-0.6v, 0.6-2v, 2-8v. This switch is used in
conjunction with a narrow-range adjustable potentiometer for fine tuning. The result is a reduction in
maximum potential channel imbalance, improved
imaging and a more accurate soundstage.
The graph above shows the amount of channel imbalance from two identical amplifiers, one
with IVS and one without, The curve with the
large bump (red) is the amplifier without IVS and
reaches a maximum channel imbalance of 0.75dB
at 0.25% of maximum gain. The two overlapping
curves (Blue and Green) show the channel imbal-
ance of an IVS-equipped amp at the 0.6-2V and
2V-8V settings. The maximum imbalance is only
0.45dB - nearly half of the non-IVS amplifier.
You might be asking yourself: Why not individual
gain controls? While individual gain controls can
offer very accurate sensitivity settings, an installer
MUST use an oscilloscope or voltmeter to properly set these controls for accurate channel to
channel output. At the very least, the installer
could tune the system by ear, but this will require
many trips from the listening position back to the
amplifier. The decision to implement IVS offers the
same result but saves the installer time when setting gains because fewer tools are required.
Hybrid Class GH Power Supplies
Amplifier efficiency has never been more important
than it is in today's modern vehicles. Alternators,
batteries and factory wiring are smaller than ever
to produce the lightest and most fuel efficient
vehicles possible at the lowest cost.
Clarion's DPX amplifiers feature Hybrid Class GH
power supplies. This technology is the result of
years of design and testing to offer the optimum
balance of sound quality and efficiency - exactly
what a Clarion customer demands.
The operation of a Hybrid Class GH amplifier is
very simple. Traditional amplifiers use a Class
AB output device topology. Essentially, there
are a set of switching devices (transistors) for
the positive half of the waveform and another
set for the negative half of the waveform. These
devices operate linearly, passing more current
through them as more signal is sent to them.
The drawback with Class AB topology is that the
output devices operate in their resistive region,
rarely fully on or off. This results in a great deal
of heat being generated and energy wasted.
Around a decade ago, the introduction of Class
D amplifiers to the car audio market offered a
significant improvement in amplifier efficiency at
the expense of sound quality and control. Class D
amplifiers operate by cycling the output devices
fully on and off very quickly. Adjusting the on ver-
64
Amplifiers – Technologies
sus off time effects a change in output level. One
of the many drawbacks of Class D amplifiers is
that they require large filtering networks after the
output stage to clean up the signal and remove
high frequency switching noise. Class D amplifiers can cause significant electrical interference
that can affect radio reception.
Clarion's Hybrid Class GH technology is truly the
best of both worlds. Clarion’s DPX amplifiers use
a fully analog Class AB audio path. This meanss
tight, controlled, dynamic power output.
How does Hybrid Class GH work to improve
efficiency if the audio path is all analog? Think
of the new Dodge Hemi or Cadillac Northstar
engines. These engines have the ability to shut
down a number of cylinders to reduce fuel comsumption and heat generation when under light
loads. The power supply of a Hybird Class GH
amplifier works in the same way. A microcontroller (computer) inside the amplifier controls the
output voltage of the power supply. It keeps the
voltage just above the output level necessary
to reproduce the audio signal. This means that
although the output devices are operated linearly,
they are almost fully on - it's the power supply
voltage that changes. The result is a significant
improvement in efficiency without any effect on
amplifier sound quality.
The graph below compares the efficiency of a conventional Class AB 1500W amp to our DPX11551
1500W amplifier. You can see that around 350W
DPX11551 is ~65% efficient, whereas the conventional Class AB is merely 25% efficient. This
means, that the DPX11551 is drawing only 37A
of current, where the Class AB amp would be
drawing closer to 97A of current.
65
Strappable Power
The DPX1851 and DPX11551 amplifiers are both
strappable. This means, a pair of amplifiers can
be used on a single voice coil to provide additional power production for extreme SPL levels.
A pair of DPX1851 amplifiers would produce
1,600W into a 2 or 4 Ohm load, and a pair of
DPX11551 would produce 3,000W into a 2 or 4
Ohm load.
Remote Bass Control
The Clarion DPX2251, DPX1851
and DPX11551 amplifiers offer the ability to connect a an optional Remote Bass Control module called the BC2. This allows you to control
the amplifiers output level from the front of the
vehicle. Unlike some competitors products, this
is not a bass boost control. This was done for
optimum sound quality and performance across
the entire frequency range, rather than making
the bass sound boomy.
Adjustable Subsonic Filter
Clarion’s DPX1851 and
DPX11551 amplifiers feature an adjustable subsonic filter. This filter is adjustable from 10Hz to
80Hz using a potentiometer on the end panel of
the amplifier.
When using subwoofers in vented cabinets with
high tuning frequencies (above 35Hz), in or large
vented enclosures, physical power handling of
the subwoofer may easily be exceeded. The
proper use of a subsonic filter will limit the
amount of ultra-low frequency information being
passed through to the speaker, as well as reduce
the amount of power the amplifier consumes in
amplifying those low frequencies.
Forced Induction Cooling
Clarion's APX Plus and DPX amplifiers feature
forced induction cooling. This is a two-part
technology. First, the heatsink design of the
amplifier maximizes air flow across the switching devices to hit them with a blast of cool air.
Air is then injested into the core of the amplifier
and expelled through the ends of the amp. The
second part of Forced Induction Cooling is the
Amplifiers – Technologies
computer controlled cooling fan. A thermal sensor connected to the heat sink of the amp combined with programming logic in the amplifiers
core decides the appropriate speed for the fan
to maximize cooling while minimizing noise.
Clarion recommends the use of twisted-pair RCA
interconnects with our amplifiers.
High Impedance Inputs
Clarion amplifiers feature high impedance RCA
input stages. This allows source unit with low
quality high impedance preamp outputs to
provide the best possible frequency and phase
response while limiting the effect of interconnect reactances on the amplifiers frequency
response.
High impedance inputs also allow you drive
multiple amplifiers from a single set of preamp
outputs using Y-Cables without as dramatic an
effect on signal quality
Mixed-Mode Operation
Clarion 2- and 4-channel amplifiers use an
inverting circuit that allows a pair of channels to
simultaneously drive multiple satellite speakers
in stereo and a subwoofer in a bridged-mono
configuration. When used in conjunction with
passive crossover components, a Clarion amplifier is capable of mixed mode operation that can
power an entire audio system.
Differential Inputs
High-impedance differential input stages separate the input signal ground from the common
chassis ground. This creates a very effective
ground-loop isolation circuit that reduces the
possibility of charging system noise entering
the signal path. The circuit also compares the
signal information on the shield to that of the
center conductor and eliminates any common
signal (noise), leaving only clear and detailed
music.
Amplifier Circuit Components
Any product is only as good as its weakest link.
When Clarion decided to reduce the physical
size of our DPX and APX Plus amplifiers, we
knew that this could not be done at the expense
of sound quality, performance or reliability.
The decision was made to design these amplifiers
for the use of surface mount technology (SMT)
devices. SMT devices offer improved tolerances
as compared to through-hole devices, and better
resist electrical interference from RF or EMI noise.
The result is an amplifier that costs a little more to
produce, but sounds better.
This advanced circuit topology ensures that
Clarion amplifiers will accurately reproduce all the
dynamics and subtleties found in today’s digital
recordings. At the same time, noise suppression
circuits work to effectively to eliminate induced
electrical system noise, contributing to maximum
dynamic range.

Illuminated Heat Sink
Clarion's APX Plus and DPX amplifiers feature
an illuminated Carbon Fiber badge in the center
of the amplifer. This badge can be removed and
rotated to maintain the readability in custom
installations.
Multi-Channel Amplifiers
Clarion’s multi-channel amplifiers provide four
channels of amplification from one chassis/ Each
amplifier is equipped with front and rear gain
controls and high-/low-pass electronic crossovers. This configuration provides maximum system flexibility.
A four-channel amplifieris the perfect starting
point in terms of an amplifier upgrade. This amplifier is the most flexible in terms of system expansion. It can be used to drive four full-range speakers, four full-range speakers and a subwoofer, a
mid and tweeter set or more. A four channel amp
rarely needs to be replaced as a customers system expands over the years, adding value to the
purchase.
CEA-2006 Compliant
The Consumer Electronics Associated developed the CEA-2006 standard to provide a level
playing field in which amplifier power and S/N
Ratio specificiations can be compared equally.
All Clarion power amplifer specifications adhere
to the guidelines of the CEA-2006 specification.
The CEA-2006 specification outlines the following test criteria for amplifier power output
testing. Rated power shall be measured with all
channels driven into a specified load impedance
with a distortion level that does not exceed 1%.
The amplifier shall produce this power across a
67
specified frequency range (commonly 20Hz to
20kHz) and be powered by a DC power supply
of 14.4V. The S/N Ratio specification is measured with respect to an output equal to 1W,
commonly 2V in a mobile audio application.
Product Specifications
Clarion has invested a significant amount of time
and expense ensuring that our amplifiers provide
the best possible sonic performance and excellent value. A look at the specifications associated with any of our amplifiers quickly demonstrates this dedication to purist performance.
From the extended frequency response to the low
S/N Ratios and distortion specifications, Clarion
amplifiers provide class leading performance.
Clarion takes great pride in the fact that our
amplifiers offer frequency response well beyond
the audible spectrum. This ensures perfectly
linear output with no emphasis in any region. It
also moves the phase shift commonly associated with high frequency roll-off out of the audible range. The APX4361and APX2181 feature
greater than 10Hz-50kHz frequency response
within 1dB - not the usual 3dB rating other products use.
2 Year Warranty
Clarion offers a 2-year warranty against defects
in materials and workmanship on the APX2181,
APX4361, DPX2251, DPX1851 and DPX11551
amplifiers if the product is purchased from, and
installed by an authorized Clarion dealer.

Subwoofers
Subwoofers – Technologies
Signature Series Woofers
Canada Only Model
Powder coated damped aluminum basket
Providing a stable platform for the speaker to
work from is critical. The cast and powder coated aluminum baskets used in Signature Series
speakers feature a low resonance design and
incredible strength.
Spring Loaded Terminals
Clarion’s dedication to Sound Genesis - reproducing music as it was originally played - is
taken to a new level with the re-introduction of
the Signature Series line of component speakers
and subwoofers. These products use the latest
technologies to produce music that is dynamic,
accurate and easy to listen to.
Composite Cone Design
The cone of any speaker must balance three
important criteria to recreate music accurately
- mass, damping and rigidity. The Composite
Cone Design used on the Signature Series speakers is the secret to their incredible performance.
The cone is a sandwich of glass fibre and PMI
(Polymethacrylimide) foam. This cone is extremely low in mass, while being rigid and well damped
at the same time.
The speaker terminals are spring loaded pushtypes with minimal contact resistance and high
transmission efficiency. These connections allow
for a quick connection that is reliable.
3-Inch Aluminum Voice Coil Former
At the heart of Signature Series subwoofers is
a 3-inch diameter aluminum voice coil former.
This former helps wick heat away from the voice
coil winding for improved power handling. The
Aluminum former doesn’t add significant mass to
the cone , resulting in excellent response.
4-layer CCAW Voice Coil winding
The Signature Series subwoofers employ a
four-layer Copper Clad Aluminum Wire winding design. The dual voice coil design is low in
mass, but helps create an intense magnetic field,
further improving transient response. The voice
coil winding length is 60mm. Thise ensures linear
operation at high excursion levels.
Dual Spider Design
Rubber Surround
Signature Series speakers feature a rubber surround for enhanced flexibility, low distortion and
reliability.
Because of the massive amounts of power that
the Signature Series subwoofer can handle, the
design requires two Conex spiders to ensure
linear motion throughout the drivers range. The
bottom spider is inverted to cancel out any nonlinearities present.
76
Subwoofers – Technologies
Spider Exhaust Technology
PXW Subwoofers
If you look at the base of the basket of a Signature
Series subwoofer, you will see many mesh-protected vents. These vents serve two purposes.
First and foremost, they allow hot air to escape
from the voice coil, helping to improve power
handling. These vents also relieve pressure from
underneath the spider, reducing distortion and
improving linearity at high excursion levels.
Clarion PXW subwoofers have been designed to
offer the best possible performance, while featuring design characteristics found in speakers costing two to three times as much.
High Excursion Design
Reproducing low frequencies at high levels
requires a significant amount of air to be moved.
Signature Series subwoofers have an Xmax
specification of 25mm (1-inch) for extreme low
frequency output.
Bumped and Vented Pole Piece
The vent in the pole piece of the Signature Series
subwoofers allows for the release of air pressure
beneath the dust cap which allows for more linear cone motion. It also allows hot air to escape
from the inside of the voice coil assembly - further
improving the speakers ability to handle high levels of power. The bump provides additional space
for the 3-inch aluminum voice coil to move up
and down, providing linear speaker operation and
incredible excursion capabilities.
Custom Designed Die-Cast Aluminum
Basket
The foundation of any subwoofer is its basket.
This is what holds all the components in alignment, ensuring reliable and linear operation. The
new Clarion PXW subwoofers feature a massive
die-cast aluminum basket structure that not only
looks formidable, but offers a rock-steady foundation for the motor and cone assembly.
Spider Exhaust Technology
Keeping the voice coil assembly of a subwoofer
cool is paramount to making sure the driver lasts
and sounds good. As the motor assembly (voice
coil, magnet, top and bottom plates) heat up, they
become less efficient - this is known as power
compression.
A speaker that can better dissipate heat will
sound better and last longer. Clarion PXW subwoofers feature SET (Spider Exhaust Technology)
cooling to allow heat generated from the voice
coil assembly to escape from the area beneath
the spider.
SET also allows pressurized air to escape from
beneath the spider. This improves overall speaker
77
Subwoofers – Technologies
linearity, especially at high excursion levels.
The PXW subwoofer allows hot air to escape
through the spokes of the basket. If you look
inside the basket, you can see that each spoke is
hollow. This extends to below the spider mounting plateau, providing ventilation and cooling.
Gold Plated Terminal Blocks
A solid electrical connection is mandatory to
ensuring reliable speaker operation. The new
PXW subwoofers feature custom-tooled
terminal blocks that will secure up to an 8 AWG
conductor.
Sewn Tinsel Leads
The connection between the voice coil and the
terminal block is critical, since all the power sent
to the speaker gets transferred through these
connections. PXW subwoofers feature massively
oversized braided tinsel leads for excellent power
transfer.
Dual Strontium Ferrite Magnets
There are many ways to alter the efficiency of a
speaker. The most common method is to adjust
the magnetic field strength by altering the gap
between the voice coil and top plate. Clarion has
implemented dual high-quality Strontium Ferrite
magnets in all PXW subwoofers. This provides an
intense magnetic field for excellent efficiency, as
well as controlled, dynamic performance.
To ensure silent and reliable operation, the tinsel
leads have been sewn to the spider at the bottom
of each roll. This allows the tinsel lead to flex
independently of the spider, preventing changes
in driver compliance at different excursion levels.
This feature also allows the tinsel leads to operate
completely silently.
An additional benefit of this large motor structure
is its thermal mass. This helps dissipate heat from
the voice coil to further improve performance.
Hyper Extended Vented Pole Piece
The T-Yoke (Bottom plate) on all PXW subwoofers
features a large cooling vent that is protected by
a mesh screen. This vent serves two purposes. It
allows heated air to escape from the inside of the
voice coil and allows pressurized air to escape
from beneath the dust cap. The mesh screen
keeps debris out of the narrow-gap voice coil
gap area.
The bottom of the pole piece has been extended
to allow increased excursion capabilities from the
PXW subwoofers. Conventional designs result in
the voice coil bumping into the bottom plate.
Linear Roll Poly-Cotton Spiders
Linear spiders offer extremely linear cone motion
control. This means that the new Clarion PXW
subwoofers will sound good while operating at
low levels and remain controlled and dynamic
when being pushed to high excursions.
Dual Heat Resistant Voice Coils
All PXW subwoofers feature Dual Voice Coil
designs. You have your choice of dual 2 Ohm or
dual 4 Ohm for 1, 2, 4 or 8 Ohm Impedances.
This ensures that Clarion PXW subwoofers will
work perfectly to achieve the maximum power
potential when connected to any amp on the
market.

Kevlar / Paper Composite Cone Design
The balance between strength and mass in a
woofer cone is of the utmost importance. The
cone of the PXW subwoofers is a composite of
pulp paper and Kelvar Fibers.
Polypropylene Electrolytic Spun
Aluminum Coated Dust Cap
The dust cap on PXW subwoofers contains more
engineering than meets the eye. The shape of the
dust cap, with this five reinforcing spokes, adds
significant strength to the design. Each spoke
triangulates the center of the cone, ensuring it
does not flex during motion.
The dust cap covers the entire face of the
subwoofer to add strength to the Kevlar/
Paper reinforced cone beneath. The dust cap
triangulates the outer edge of the cone below,
further strengthening the assembly.
The dust cap features an electrolytically applied
spun aluminum finish.
Paper cones have excellent strength to mass
properties, but can soften slightly in high humidity
environments. To rectify this, Clarion mixes Kevlar
fibers into the pulp paper mixture. These fibers
produce a much stronger cone that offers better
resistance to changing environmental conditions.
Hidden Screw Mounting Gasket
CoPolymer Composite High Excursion
Surround
The surround at the outer edge of the cone serves
three important duties - it provides compliance to
the cone assembly, it damps the cone assembly,
and it allows the speaker cone to travel through
its range of motion while maintaining an airtight
seal.
Clarion PXW subwoofers feature a synthetic
rubber surround that provides the flexibility of
foam while offering the reliability and longevity of
rubber. The shape of the surround allows the cone
to travel through its range of motion unimpaired
for increased linearity.
79
The new PXW subwoofers feature a custom tooled
rubber mounting gasket. This gasket ensures
a perfectly airtight seal against the face of an
enclosure, and conceals the mounting hardware
for a clean, attractive installation. The gasket can
be removed and reversed for installations that will
show the rear of the subwoofer.

PFW subwoofer
important. The new PFW subwoofer sounds
excellent in a vented enclosure. The optimum
volume being 0.5 cubic feet with a 2" dia vent, 9.5
inches long for excellent low frequency extension
and power handling.
SRW subwoofers
The evolution of the shallow-mount subwoofer the PFW1051.
This subwoofer was designed to offer the best
possible performance from a driver that requires
only three inches of mounting depth.
Clarion chose not to add additional expense
to the PFW subwoofer by implementing
overly exotic material applications or complex
suspension designs - instead we simply took
everything that makes the PXW subwoofers great,
and compressed it into a shallower package.
Reliable, easy to install and great sounding - the
PFW1051.
Learning from our success with the PXW
subwoofers, Clarion introduces the third
generation SRW line of subwoofers. Many of
the technologies and features found on the PXW
subwoofers have made their way to the SRW
series.
Paper / Glass Fiber Composite Cone
Design
The balance between strength and mass in a
woofer cone is of the utmost importance. The
cone of the SRW subwoofers is a composite of
pulp paper and glass fibers.
Single Voice Coil
Unlike the PXW subwoofers, the PFW1051 is
available only in a single 4 Ohm voice coil
configuration with a 300W continuous, 600W
Maximum thermal power handling rating.
Paper cones have excellent strength to mass
properties, but can soften slightly in high humidity
environments. To rectify this, Clarion mixes glass
fibers into the pulp paper mixture. These fibers
produce a much stronger cone that offers better
resistance to changing environmental conditions.
Small Enclosure Requirements
Building a subwoofer that looks impressive is one
thing, but ensuring it will perform in the kind of
applications people want is equally, if not more

time. The new SRW subwoofers were designed
with this in mind. The powder coated stamped

subwoofer, providing a stable, solid foundation.
is higher than conventional ferrite magnets.
Combining this magnet with our heat-resistant
voice coil and the result is a line of subwoofers
that are able to deliver high SPLs with excellent
sound quality
Rear-Vented Pole Piece
Nitrile Butadiene Rubber Surround
To prevent pressure from building up under the
dust cap and causing distortion and nonlinearities,
a vent is provided on the rear of the pole piece.
This allows for smooth cone movement, which
contributes to smooth, powerful bass response.
Ensuring a reliable and flexible connection
between the cone assembly and the basket is an
NBR rubber surround
SFW Subwoofers
This vent also allows hot air to exit from the inside
of the voice coil and motor assembly. Heat is the
enemy of every speaker. Improved cooling means
that your subwoofer will play louder, longer.
S.E.T. - Spider Exhaust Technology
Adding to the arsenal of 'cool technolgies' is Spider
Exhaust Technology. Cooling vents incorporated
into the spider mounting frame provide a path for
hot air to escape from the voice coil. These vents
also release pressure from behind the spider,
helping to improve performance and reduce
distortion.
Gold Plated Terminal Blocks
Terminal blocks allow for secure and solid
electrical connections to be made to the woofer.
The terminal blocks will easily accept 8 AWG
cables for efficient current transfer.
Just as the PFW is a shallow version of the PXW
subwoofer, so is the SFW subwoofer a shallow
version of the SRW sub. We took everything
that made the SRW great and compressed it in
a package that requires less than 3 inches of
mounting depth.
The SFW1051 features a single 4 Ohm voice coil
winding with a rated continuous thermal power
handling of 300W. A single strontium ferrite
magnet enclosed by a stamped steel basket
provides a serious kick.
Kapton Voice Coil Former
Helping to dissipate heat and increase speaker
longevity is a Kapton voice coil former. Kapton is
a Polymide Film developed by DuPont. Kapton
offers an excellent balance of thermal resistance
and low mass. This helps to reduce the overall
moving mass of the driver and provides quicker
transient response and improved dynamics.
Powerful Strontium Magnet
high conductivity double-stacked Strontium
magnets are used in the SRW subwoofers to
obtain an air-gap magnetic flux density that
81
Building a shallow subwoofer is one thing, but
providing one that performs is another. The
SFW1051 was designed to offer 'big sub' bass in
a small space. A vented enclosure with an internal
volume of 0.5 cubic feet, tuned to 35Hz sounds
fantastic and the combination works great when
powered by the APX1301 amplifier.
Subwoofers – Technologies
SW Subwoofers
contributes to linear, powerful bass response.
Providing performance at an unbeatable price
are the SW1051 and SW1251 subwoofers
from Clarion. These subwoofers feature many
of the same technologies as the SRW and
PXW subwoofers, including a vented pole
piece, Polypropylene dust cap, Strontium Ferrite
Magnets, and high temperature voice coil
formers.
This vent also allows hot air to exit from the inside
of the voice coil and motor assembly. Heat is the
enemy of every speaker. Improved cooling means
that your subwoofer will play louder, longer.
Small Enclosure Requirements
Clarion SW series subwoofers will produce tight,
musical bass from very small enclosures. Not
having to waste valuable trunk space means you
can fit more woofers in the same space, or have
room for your personal belongings.
Powerful Strontium Magnet Assembly
High Temperature Voice Coil Assembly
SW subwoofers are designed with a single high
temperature 4 Ohm voice coil. The voice coil is
wrapped around a 2-inch Kapton former for solid
and reliable performance.
Spider Exhaust Technology (SET)
Additional cooling is provided thanks to a series
of cooling vents that are incorporated into the top
of the voice coil former. These vents allow hot air
to escape from underneath the spider, as well as
preventing this air from becoming pressurized
during high excursion levels.
A high conductivity double-stacked magnet is
used in the SW subwoofers to obtain an airgap magnetic flux density that is higher than
conventional ferrite magnets. Combining this
magnet with a heat-resistant voice coil results
in a subwoofer that is able to deliver high output
levels while sounding great.
Rubber Coated Tinsel Leads
SW subwoofers feature gold plated electrical
terminals for a reliable connection. The tinsel
leads that run from the terminals to the voice coil
are encased in rubber to ensure they will never
short against anything. This rubber casing also
helps damp their movement, ensuring the driver
operates without mechanical noise that would
interfere with music reproduction.
Powder Coated Steel Basket
SW subwoofers are based on a stamped steel
basket that has been treated to a textured black
powder coat finish. The basket features spokes
that have their edges rolled over for additional
strength.
Rear-Vented Pole Piece
To prevent pressure from building up under the
dust cap and causing distortion and nonlinearities,
a vent is provided on the rear of the pole piece.
This allows for smooth cone motion, which

Clarion Pre-loaded subwoofer
enclosures
Today's Car Audio specialist doesn’t always
have the time to design and construct the perfect subwoofer system, yet his or her customers
demand the best possible performance for their
dollar. Clarion comes to your rescue with a complete line of pre-loaded subwoofer enclosures
- designed and manufactured in Canada to offer
the best possible performance from your Clarion
subwoofers.
Cosmetics
Clarion Subwoofer enclosures don’t just look
good, they are designed to last. The enclosures
are wrapped in tough carpet for a clean look.
The front panels of the enclosures feature polyethylene vinyl wrapping. This vinyl wrap not only
adds style to the enclosure, but its tough surface
resists scuffs and scratches commonly associated with painted enclosures. Clarion subwoofer
enclosures also feature a silver Clarion gel badge
and engraving to complete the package.
Flexibility
Construction
Clarion Subwoofer enclosures are constructed
from 3/4-inch hardwood MDF. This wood offers
much higher density throughout the material as
compared to most off-shore sourced products.
The result is in an enclosure that is well damped
for tight, accurate, uncolored music reproduction.
Conventional
Joint
Rabbet
Joint
Where two panels meet at right angles, Clarion
subwoofer enclosures use Rabbet construction.
This increases the surface area of the connection
to offer more strength, and an improved seal.
Design
Each Clarion Subwoofer enclosure is designed
specifically for the driver that is included with it.
No compromises were made during the design
- offering the best possible balance of output,
extension and dynamic response. Generic subwoofer enclosures don’t always offer this balance, reducing your customers enjoyment and
satisfaction.
In many instances, generic subwoofer enclosures
are not acceptable for use with some drivers. This
may void the warranty on your subwoofer.
107
Clarion Subwoofer enclosures are offered in
many combinations to maximize the performance
of your audio system. Our single 10” and single
12” PXW series enclosures are offered in 4 Ohm
or 2 Ohm designs. Match these enclosures to
your amp for maximum output.
Ease of installation
Clarion subwoofer enclosures feature recessed
five-way binding post terminals. This provides
a protected electrical connection while allowing
easy access should the enclosure need to be
removed for any reason.

Using this information, you know the series, size,
design and application of each speaker in the
line, making it easier to understand our extensive
product offerings.
Of course, you can mix and match, so you can
use the woofer on the 6x8" adapter plate and
mount the tweeter either coaxially or as a separate to potentially improve the soundstage.
Let's look at a the SRQ1630R as an example.
Each letter and number of the product part has
a meaning.
The MultiFit concept has been applied to six
speaker models across the Ultra and Platinum

MultiFit
Clarion introduces a simple and elegant solution
to a problem that most car audio retailers didn't
know they had - MultiFit. The MultiFit concept
is not new to Clarion, but it's breadth has been
expanded to serve you even better.
The MultiFit concept is quite simple - a speaker
system that fits multiple applications without the
need for additional hardware.
The reasoning behind the concept is to allow
car audio retailer to stock fewer different SKUs,
while still being able to offer a solution for each
application.
Here's an example of how MultiFit works. The
SRP1620M kit includes a pair of 6.5" woofers,
a pair of 3/4" tweeters, plastic grills, mesh grill
inserts, a pair of passive crossover networks,
6x8" adapter plates and GM Chrysler adapters.
The tweeter includes surface and flush mounting hardware. You can mount the tweeter as a
component, anywhere you want with respect
to the midrange. Or you can remove the phase
plug from the center of the midrange driver and
install the tweeter in its place to create a coaxial driver.
With all these parts included, the SRP1620M
is a 6-1/2" Component Set, 6-1/2" Coaxial Set
and 6x8" plate Speaker Set
CEA-2031 Compliance
Just as the Consumer Electronics Association
revolutionized amplifier power specifications
with CEA-2006, so to have they begun to make
an impact on speaker specifications. All new
2008 Clarion speakers are compliant with the
newly introduce CEA-2031 Mobile Speaker
standard. This CEA-2031 logo assures that the
speaker has been testing using methods that
are in accordance with the standards. These
specifications include: Power Handling in Watts.
Maximum power handling, Cut-out Diameter,
mounting depth, diameter and impedance.
Environmentally Friendly
Clarion is commited to maintaining our ISO14001
environmental standards certification. This is
acheived by ensuring that our products are produced in a manner that reduces or eliminates a
detrimental impact on the environment. One of
the simplest changes we have made is to implement the use of lead-free solder in the manufacturing of all of our loudspeakers.
Designed and Tested to Last
To remain a world leader in the car audio industry, Clarion has established a set of in-house
116
Speaker Technologies
quality control criteria to ensure our products
meet our customers expectations for performance and longevity.
All of Clarion's 2008 speakers went through a
fine-tuning process at our head office in Tokyo
Japan. These listening sessions were not
only attended by the speaker enigneers that
designed the products, but also by staff from
our offices in the USA and Canada.
Although listening is a critical part of the design
process, so to are our efforts to ensure the
speakers will last. Each Clarion speaker is tested to ensure it will be able to perform without
failure for 100 hours when being driven at it's
Continuous Rated power rating. This ensures
the speakers meet their specifications, and that
you know when you sell a set of speakers to a
customer, he is going to enjoy them for years
and years.
Signature Series - Audiophile
design and performance
Signature Series component sets were designed
to offer discerning listeners the best in mobile
sound reproduction. The materials used in these
component sets represent the state-of-the-art in
terms of speaker design.
Powder coated dampened aluminum basket
Providing a stable platform for the speaker to
work from is critical. The cast and powder coated
aluminum baskets used in the Signature Series
speakers feature a low resonance design and
incredible strength.
Rubber Surround
Signature Series speakers feature a rubber surround for enhanced flexibility, low distortion and
reliability. This surround also provides damping to
the cone to reduce resonance and colouration.
4-layer CCAW Voice Coil winding
The Signature Series components employ a
four-layer Copper Clad Aluminum Wire voice coil
winding design. This design is low in mass, but
helps create an intense magnetic field, further
improving transient response.
Fixed Phase Plug
Instead of a conventional dust cap, the Signature
Series component speakers employ a fixed phase
plug. This reduces moving mass for better transient performance due to the elimination of the
dust cap. It also helps direct sound laterally,
improving off-axis response.
Composite Cone Design
The cone of any speaker must combine three
important criteria to achieve accurate music
production - mass, damping and rigidity. The
Composite Cone Design used on the Signature
Series speakers is essential to their incredible
performance. The cone is a sandwich of glass
fibre and a PMI (Polymethacrylimide) foam cone.
This cone is extremely low in mass, while being
rigid and well dampened at the same time.
117
Woven Tinsel Leads
To ensure the complete absence of mechanical
noise, Clarion has chosen to implement tinsel
leads that are woven into the spider.
Speaker Technologies
Passive Crossover Network
At the heart of the Signature Series component
is their passive crossover networks. These networks were designed to offer excellent frequency
response, as well as good system power handling. The tweeter features an elaborate protection circuit that will prevent damage to the speaker while not upsetting the amplifier driving it.
1” Inverted Dome Titanium tweeter
Detail and accuracy in high frequencies is
achieved using a 1-inch titanium dome tweeter
and Neodynium magnet. The inverted dome
tweeter features an integrated phase plug to
excellent off-axis performance.
Balancing the charactertistics of weight, rigidity
and damping are the key to producing a cone
that allows for excellent dynamics and smooth
frequency response.
The use of Glass Fiber in the Utra and Platinum
series speakers was chosen based on it's excellent strength to mass ratio and good damping
characteristics.
The cones of these drivers feature a parabolic
shape that further strengthens the cone and
helps reduce resonance.
The result is clear and detailing midrange
performance with solid and authorative bass
response.
Ferrofluid Cooling
By injecting Ferrofluid (a non-cunductive magnetic liquid) into the voice coil gap area of
the Inverted Dome Titanium Tweeter, efficiency
and power handling capabilities are increased.
Ferrofluid also helps to dampen resonances
and reduce impedance rise at the resonant frequency.
Ultra and Platinum Series
Both the Ultra and Platinum series speakers
feature many similar product features and design
concepts. We will review how these different
components contribute to the performance of
these speakers.
Glass Fiber Woofer Cones
The purpose of the speaker cone is to act as a
linear piston that compresses and rarifies the
air in front of it as the motor assembly moves it
back and forth.
Silk Dome Tweeters
The silk dome tweeters found in the Ultra and
Platinum series speakers offer smooth frequency
response and good transient performance.
These tweeters are powered by a Neodymium
magnet for improved efficiency and clarity.
The result is a tweeter that is easy to listen to
while still offering excellent detail and accuracy.
These speakers were designed to offer extended
frequeuncy response all the way out to 50kHz.
This reduces the phase shift commonly associated with tweeters that attenuate abruptly above
20kHz.
We also include Flush Mount and Surface Mount
hardware with all our tweeters, so no matter what vehicle you are working on, there are
mounting options to make your life easy.
118
Speaker Technologies
Cast Aluminum Chassis
At the heart of each and every speaker is it's
chassis (basket). The Ultra and Platinum series
speakers feature custom tooled cast aluminum chassis' that integrate Spider Exhaust
Technology cooling.
These chassis' are very rigid, preventing chassi
distortion due to installation on surfaces that are
not flat.
These chassis are designed to be non-resonant.
A chassis that is flimsy can cause colouration
and distortion in the music.
Finally, the inclusion of Spider Exhaust
Technology cooling in both the Ultra and
Platinum series speakers not only helps to
improve power handling, but to increase driver
linearity thanks to the ability to vent air pressure
from beneath the spider mounting plateau.
Another factor that directly effects driver efficiency and power handling is the air gap between
the top plate and the voice coil former. Clarion
specifies a very narrow gap to further improve
driver efficiency. This narrow gap helps to dissipate heat from the voice coil assembly for
improved power handling and reduced power
compression.
Passive Crossover Network
Although the passive crossover networks found
in the Platinum Series speakers look similar to
their 2007 counterparts, many new features have
been implemented.
The most noticeable change is the move to
an incandescent lamp for tweeter protection.
This provides a gradual clamping of power to
the speaker instead of the old PTC switch that
would disconnect the tweeter from the circuit to
prevent damage dur to being overdriven.
These networks feature a third order (18dB/
Octave) filter on the tweeter to allow for extended low frequency performance while maintaing
good physical power handling.
A first order filter (6dB/octave) on the woofer
provides a phase correct transition and allows
for flexible speaker placement.
The networks include both 0dB and -3dB settings for the tweeter. This means you do your
system tuning without the need to equalizers or
tone controls.
Powerful Motor
Each Ultra and Platinum series driver is based
around a Strontium Ferrite Magnet in the motor.
The use of Strontium ferrite as opposed to less
expensive magnet materials such as Barium
Ferrite allows for a more intense magnetic
field around the voice coil. This means that the
speaker will respond faster to music and be
more efficient.
119
Speaker Technologies
Advanced Suspension System
Locating the cone and voice coil in the exact
center of the magnet assembly while allowing
it to move linearly is accomplished thanks to a
synthetic rubber surround and Conex progressive spider.
Conex is a synthetic fiber that offers excellent
thermal stability as well as abrasion resistance.
This means that it can handle the high temperatures associated with high power speaker
applications and not fatigue during normal use.
Conex is known as meta-aramid fiber and is
very similar to Nomex which was first produced
by DuPont.
The rubber surround remains flexible over a
wide temperature range and resists failure due
to UV exposure or thermal cycling. The rubber
surround also acts as a damper, helping to eliminate cone resonances.
Environmentally Friendly
Clarion is commited to maintaining our
ISO14001 environmental standards certification.
This is acheived by ensuring that our products
are produced in a manner that reduces or eliminates a detrimental impact on the environment.
One of the simplest changes we have made is
to implement the use of lead-free solder in the
manufacturing of all of our loudspeakers.
On the Quality series speakers, these MIPP
cones are treated with a Titanium Metallized
coating. This coating helps to stabilize the polypropylene and protect it from the effects of UV
Exposure.
Tweeter Technology
The tweeters used on the Good series of speakers are moulded from PEI (Polyether Imide). PEI
is a high performance polymer plastic that offers
excellent chemical and temperature stability
characteristics. In fact, PEI is so dimensionally
stable, parts are oftem machined from PEI as
replacements for metal components in military
weapon applications. PEI is a product of GE
Plastics
The Quality series speakers feature a Silk Dome
tweeter that is powered by a Neodymium magnet. This tweeter offers a sound that is described
as 'smooth' because the silk material itself acts
as a vibration damping material.
Quality and Good Series
Advanced Cone Materials
The woofer cones found on all Quality and Good
series speakers are made from Mica Injected
Polypropylene. Unlike many speakers that are
made from 'pure' polypropylene, the addition of
Mica flake to the polypropylene increases the
resulting materials thermal stability (resistance to
deformation due to heat) and increased rigidity
(known as Modulus). Many other company only
offer this kind of technology on their higher end
speakers.
Powerful Motor
Each Ultra and Platinum series driver is based
around a Strontium Ferrite Magnet in the motor.
The use of Strontium ferrite as opposed to less
expensive magnet materials such as Barium
Ferrite allows for a more intense magnetic
field around the voice coil. This means that the
speaker will respond faster to music and be
more efficient.
120
Speaker Technologies
Another factor that directly effects driver efficiency and power handling is the air gap between
the top plate and the voice coil former. Clarion
specifies a very narrow gap to further improve
driver efficiency. This narrow gap helps to dissipate heat from the voice coil assembly for
improved power handling and reduced power
compression.
Application Specific Sizing
The Quality and Good series of speakers
includes every common speaker size from
3-1/2" up to 6x9" and everything in between.
This means that you can offer your customer a
solution for any new vehicle application.
The design of many of the speaker chassis
includes elongated or multiple mounting holes to
make installation even easier.

Land or Sea – Clarion Will Take You
There
Digital Media Compatible
The CMD5, M475 and M275 are compatible with
MP3 and WMA files. Burn your favorite music
onto a CD-R or CD-R/W and enjoy hours of
entertainment without changing discs.
Stainless Steel Chassis
The CMD5 and M475 feature a stainless steel
chassis to help prevent water from entering the
the radio and damaging the circuitry inside. We
have also included a drip shield over the wire
harness connection to further reduce the risk of
water being able to infiltrate the radio.
Bluetooth Ready
The CMD5, M475 and M275 are Bluetooth ready.
Simply connect the BLT370 and enjoy high quality streaming audio from your portable music
player or MP3-equipped cellular phone. You can
even answer the phone.
Quick Release Door with Watertight Seal
The design of this door with its unique rubber
gasket and door assembly, gives you maximum
protection of the CMD5’s internal components.
This design gives the user one-touch easy loading of CDs. You can rest assured of long lasting
moisture protection with at least 10,000 duty
cycles for durability.
CMD5’s Water-Resistant Face Plate Meets
IPX5 Watertight Standard
The water-resistant face plate on the CMD5 can
withstand a 65 gallon stream of water from a
1-inch diameter hose at 10 feet for 5 minutes.
This standard eliminates concerns of water damage caused by rain, splashes, and wash downs.
Silicone Oil Damped Suspension System
Our tried-and-true mobile audio CD mechanisms
are fine-tuned for the marine environment to minimize mistracking. This is accomplished without
resorting to buffer circuits, which can add distortion and degrade sound quality.
Conformally Coated PC Boards
All Clarion Marine head units have had their
circuit boards coated with Humiseal. This is a
product developed to protect electronic components being used in harsh environments. This
coating is one of the many reasons why Clarion
Marine head units meet the ASTM B117 Salt/Fog
Exposure specification.

Marine Audio – Technologies
Front Panel Auxiliary Inputs
Marine Power Amplifiers
The M475 and M275 feature from panel Auxiliary
input connections. Simply connect your portable music player, DVD player or even a laptop
and enjoy high quality, interference free music.
Clarion Auxiliary inputs feature three sensitivity
ranges to ensure perfect level matching.
Power amplifiers are essential in marine applications where high ambient noise competes with
the sound system. The fact is that without an
amplifier, increasing the volume control often
means increasing distortion.
Clarion also offers the CCUAUXEX1 Aux input
cable to make bringing your music to life even
easier. This is a 3-foot cable with 1/8-inch stereo
mini-jacks on each end. Perfect for connecting
your portable audio player to either the M275 or
M475.
Wired Remote Controls
The CMD5 and M475 are ready for Clarion's
wired remote control system. Choose our 3-inch
LCD equipped remotes (CMRC1-SB or CMRC1BSS) for full command over all functions and
a display to let you know whats going on. Our
2-inch remotes (CMRC2-SB or CMRC2-BSS)
have all the same functionality, but without the
display. Both remotes are available in black or
stainless steel finishes and up to four remotes
can be used with one source unit with optional
(M101RYC) Y-Cables.
Infrared Remote Controls
The CMD5 and M475 are IR remote
control ready. Enjoy full control over
your audio system system control
from almost anywhere on the boat.
Advanced iPod Interface Ready
Combine the CMD5 or M475 with the CCAIPOD
for advanced control over your Apple iPod.
Sort your music by Album, Artists, Song Title,
Composer, Genre or Playlist to make listening to
what you want easier than ever. You can see the
title of what you are listening to on the display of
your radio.

Just like increasing the size of the engine adds to
the performance of a boat, increasing power of
the audio system adds to its performance. People
who know audio understand that amplifiers add
more than just volume to music. They reduce distortion at high volumes and ensure that the music
that you hear is crisp, clear and powerful.
Clarion marine audio amplifiers include sound
quality features such as electronic crossovers
and differential inputs. Our amplifiers are also
bridgeable, so you can make even more power
when driving a subwoofer or two.
Advanced Marine Design
Nobody understands the marine audio environment like Clarion - we invented the category
and remain the industry leader. Clarion marine
product are designed to not only look and sound
great, but to withstand the harshest tests Mother
Nature can through their way.
ASTM B117 Salt Fog Exposure Standard
This test was created to evaluate a products
corrosion resistance over extended exposure to
salt water. The test involves subjecting a device
(speaker for example) to a spray in a closed
chamber of a solution of NaCl ranging in concentration from 3.5 to 20%. The second part of the
test involves bubbling compressed air through
a humidifying tower containing hot de-ionized
water. This recreates a condition of 100% humidity. Clarion products subjected to these tests must
pass without corrosion, damage or failure.
Marine Audio – Technologies
ASTM D4329 - UV Exposure Testing
This testing standard describes an evaluation of
the damaging effects of long term outdoor UV
exposure. The test subjects must withstand alternating cycles of 8 hours of ultraviolet light exposure at 70 degrees Celsius, followed by 4 hours
of condensation at 50 degrees Celsuis, then
repeated for extended periods of time in multiples
of 500 hours per test (up to 2000 Hours). The
devices under test must pass without discoloring,
fading, chalking or cracking.
Centrex 814 Chassis and Grills
All Clarion marine speaker chassis' and grills are
injection moulded from a polymer plastic called
Centrex 814. This plastic has physical properties
similar to ABS plastic, but adds the ability to resist
chalking, fading and yellowing due to prolonged
UV exposure.
Triple Gasket Design
All Clarion marine speakers include a synthetic
rubber mounting gasket to ensure water does not
infiltrate behind the speaker. This not only protects
the speaker itself from damage, but the hull of
the boat. All marine speakers feature Santoprene
rubber surround at the outer edge of the woofers
for durability and flexibility in all weather conditions. Coaxial marine speakers feature a custom
tooled Santoprene rubber gasket at the base of
the woofer cone that seals the cone to the tweeter
mounting post. These three gaskets ensure there
is no way water can penetrate the speaker, causing it to fail or your boat to be damaged.
7-inch speakers
Clarion's line of 7-inch diameter speakers set new
standards for marine audio entertainment. These
speakers were designed to the same strict tolerances as our 6.5-inch speakers, but offer improved
efficiency, as well as improved bass output thanks
to a 35% increase in cone area.
Sport Series Speakers
The Sport Series of speakers were introduced
to add options to your purchase. If you are looking for aggressive styling with the same proven
marine performance you’ve come to expect from
Clarion, then the Sport Series CMCX7.1s 7-inch
coaxial speaker set and CMSW10.1s 10” subwoofer are the perfect choice.
Wakeboard Tower Speaker Systems
New for 2008, Clarion introduces a full line of
wakeboard tower speaker enclosures. These
enclosures are constructed from high quality,
hand-laid fiberglass and feature and automotive quality clear finish. Each pair of enclosures
includes stainless steel mounting hardware that
will accomodate tower bar diameters from 1-7/8"
through 2.5".
The enclosures were designed specifically for use
with Clarion's 7-inch coaxial speakers for excellent efficiency and sound quality.
You can purchase the enclosures in your choice
of silver, black or white with either the CMCX7.1
or CMCX7.1S coaxial speaker set.
Dare to compare: The Clarion CMR1720T enclosures offer more than twice the efficiency of other
6.5" wakeboard tower speaker enclosures. This
means that your music will be louder, your hear
and feel more bass, your boat battery will last
longer and you get more bang for your buck.
The results of our efforts is a speaker that is 3dB
more efficient with dramatically improved low
frequency extension and smooth band to band
performance.

UNGO Feature Descriptions
Secure Digital Communications
In order to achieve a reliable 1-Mile of range
from the SR9000, Clarion has implemented
Spread Spectrum Technology Secure Digital
Communication. Spread Spectrum Technology
takes a signal (in the case of the SR9000, a rolling code that tells the system what do to) and
spreads the code over a wide range of frequencies. The advantage of this is that because the
signal is so spread out, it becomes more resistant to interference, and helps to guarantee the
signal is received and decoded.
Ungo Spread Spectrum Technology operates
at 900Mhz, further improving its resistance to
interference
Anti-Carjacking
The optional anti-carjacking system feature is
designed to ensure that any unauthorized user
of the vehicle (even using the keys and remote
control) will not be able to permanently separate
the owner from their vehicle.
This system cannot prevent a carjacking attempt;
however, it does ensure that if an unauthorized
user takes the vehicle, it will be disabled (after
several progressive warnings) as a safely as
possible.
Anti-Code Grabbing Technology (a.k.a.
Code Hopping):
The receiver and remotes use a mathematical
formula called an algorithm to change their code
each time the remote is used. This technology
has been developed to increase the security of
the unit. The control unit knows what the next
codes should be. This helps to keep the remote
“in sync” with the control unit even if you use
the remote control out of range of the vehicle.
152
UNGO – Features and Technologies
Anti-Grind Circuitry
Whenever the vehicle is remote started,
advanced anti-grind circuitry prevents the starter from engaging, even if the key is turned to
the start position. This prevents damage to the
starter motor if the key is turned to the start
position during remote start operation.
Built-in Wait-to-Start Timer
Diesel vehicles need adequate time to warm
up the glow plugs prior to starting. When the
remote start is activated, the wait-to-start timer
will allow the glow plugs to properly warm up
before engaging the starter circuit. This feature
prevents damage to the motor and glow plugs
during remote start operation.
Comfort Closure
If programmed ON the door lock output will
activate the Comfort Closure output for 20 seconds. This output will begin 200mS after the
final door lock output has completed regardless
of the door lock programming. This feature is
designed to integrate with vehicle that can close
the power windows and sunroof by holding the
key in the driver door lock position, and will
operate on both single input systems and two
pulse dead bolt systems.
Dome Light Supervision Output
The dome light will illuminate for 30 seconds
each time the system is disarmed using the
remote control. This is useful for seeing inside
the vehicle at night prior to entering it.
Dual Stage Impact Sensor
A sensor mounted in the vehicle that is designed
to pick up impacts to the vehicle or glass.
Depending on the strength of the impact, the
sensor can determine whether it’s an accidental
contact or actual violation attempt.
Event History Diagnostic
ProSecurity systems can provide notification
that the alarm was previously triggered. The sta-
153
tus LED will indicate which zone was involved.
The system will retain this information in its
memory, until the next time the ignition key is
turned ON.
Extended Range Antenna
An optional external receiver/antenna used to
upgrade the remote/receiver performance in
areas of high radio interference such as military
bases, airports, and hospitals.
False Alarm Prevention
It prevents annoying repetitive sequences due
to faulty door pins switches or environmental
conditions such as thunder, jackhammers, airport noise, etc.
Gasoline or Diesel Vehicle Compatible
ProSecurity remote start systems can be
installed into either gasoline or diesel vehicles.
Hyper Blue LED
A blue LED (Light Emmiting Diode) mounted at
a discretionary location inside the vehicle. It is
used to indicate the status of your system.
Individual Remote Recognition
Individual Remote Recognition makes it possible to program different settings for each remote
that is used with the system. Then, whenever
a specific remote is used, the system will recall
the setting assigned to that remote. IDR lets up
to four users of the system have different settings that meet their specific needs. It is almost
like having four separate alarms in your vehicle,
one for each user.
Keyless Entry
Allows for easy entry or exiting of the vehicle
without having fumbling around for keys. May
require additional parts and labor.
UNGO – Features and Technologies
Over and Under Rev Protection
Remote Enabled Valet (REV)
The system monitors the engine speed and will
automatically shut the engine off if the RPMs
rise above or fall below the programmed levels.
This feature prevents damage to the motor due
to fuel delivery system failures or other problems, which may cause the engine to race.
The security system will not arm, even with the
remote, but all convenience functions (door
locks, trunk release, etc.) will still continue to
work normally. REV allows access to Valet
Mode without having to disclose the location of
the Valet/Override switch.
Programmable Override Sequence
Remote Panic
ProSecurity systems can be programmed to
respond to one to five pulses of the Valet/
Override Switch for the disarm function.
If you are threatened in or near your vehicle,
you can attract attention by triggering the system with your remote control. Just press the
“PANIC” or “LOCK” button for two seconds,
and you will enter Panic Mode. The siren will
sound and the parking lights will flash for the
programmed siren duration. To stop Panic
Mode at any time, press the “LOCK” button on
the remote.
Progressive Door Unlock
For added security, the ProSecurity system
can be configured to unlock the driver’s door
only, leaving the passenger doors locked.
Pressing the UNLOCK button an additional time
will unlock the passenger doors. This option
requires additional parts and labor.
ProSecurity Power Up
The ProSecurity system will store its current
state of non-volatile memory. If the power is
lost and then reconnected the system will recall
the stored state from memory. This means if
the unit is in Valet Mode and the battery is disconnected for any reason, when the battery is
reconnected the unit will still be in Valet Mode.
ProSecurity Starter Disable
An automatic switch controlled by your system
that prevents the vehicle’s starter from cranking
whenever the system is armed. The vehicle is
never prevented from cranking when the system
is disarmed, in Valet Mode, or if the starter interrupt switch itself fails.
Rear Defroster Activation
During remote start operation, the rear defroster
can be activated. This option requires additional parts and labor.
Remote Silent Arm/Disarm Capability
The siren chirps upon arm or disarm can be
temporarily eliminated for that one operation
only. The siren arm/disarm chirps can be turned
off permanently, if desired. The siren chirps will
also be eliminated during the warn-away trigger
of the Dual Stage Impact Sensor.
Selectable Ignition Controlled Door
Locks
When the ignition is turned ON, the doors will
lock within 3 seconds and unlock when the
ignition is turned OFF. Ignition controlled lock
and unlock are independent features are can be
programmed separately.
Selectable Siren Duration and Tones
The duration of the siren can be programmed
to either 30 or 60 seconds. Some states have
laws regulating how long a security system can
sound. The multi-tone sirens included with
ProSecurity systems can be easily modified to
select desired tones or single tone.
154
UNGO – Features and Technologies
Short Run Timer / Turbo Timer Mode
Short run turbo mode keeps the engine running
after arriving at your destination for a programmable period of time.
Tachometer or Voltage Sensing
ProSecurity remote start systems either use a
tachometer signal or sense the voltage of the
vehicle during remote start activation. These
signals inform the remote start system that the
vehicle has successfully started and is running.
The system’s auxiliary output can be programmed to operate a factory power release
for the vehicle’s trunk or hatch. If the factory
release is not power activated, an optional trunk
release solenoid can often be added.
Trunk/Hatch Release Output
The system’s auxiliary output can be programmed to operate a factory power release for
the vehicle’s trunk or hatch. If the factory release
is not power activated, an optional trunk release
solenoid can often be added. This output will
then disable / ignore the two-stage shock sensor as you load and unload the vehicle.
155
UNGO – Application Notes
Obtaining Optimal Range
It is recommended that all security components
be grounded at the same location.
Mounting the Extended Range Antenna:
Turning Off the Anti-Code Grabbing
Technology (a.k.a. Code Hopping):
1. Clean the mounting area with a quality glass
cleaner or alcohol to remove any dirt or residue.
2. Plug the receiver/antenna cable into the receiver/antenna.
3. Mount the receiver/antenna vertically using the
supplied double-sided tape.
4. Route the receiver/antenna cable to the control
module and plug it into the four-pin antenna connector.
Important:
• To achieve the best possible range, DO NOT
leave the antenna cable bundled up tightly
underneath the dash. Try to extend the cable the
full length during installation.
• DO NOT mount the control module to close the
vehicle’s Body Control Module and/or Electronic
Control Modules.
Mounting the Standard Antenna:
1. Route the antenna as high up as possible,
extending it to its full length.
2. Secure it in place using a cable tie.
Important:
• DO NOT cut or extend the antenna, as it’s tuned
precisely to the control unit.
• Route the antenna away from moving parts under
the dash and from the vehicle’s Body Control
Module and/or Electronic Control Modules.
Mounting the Control Unit:
• Do not mount or secure the control unit to close
to the vehicle’s Body Control Module and/or
Electronic Control Modules.
• Do not mount or secure the control unit to close
sources of heat, such as the heater core and/or
air ducts.
• Ground the control unit to a clean, paint-free
sheet metal location using a factory bolt that
DOES NOT have any vehicle component grounds
attached to it. A screw should only be used when
in conjunction with a two-sided lock washer.
Under dash brackets and door sheet metal are
not acceptable ground points.
Although this is a feature designed to prevent
the remote transmitters from being cloned and
retransmitted to the control unit, it is virtual
impossible to do. “Code Grabbers” have a very
limited range, usually required to within 5 feet of
the remote transmitter while the button is being
depressed. By turning the off the Anti-Code
Grabbing feature, it can increase the receiving/
transmitting range by 30-35%.
Refer to the “System Features Menu” for the
Feature Number and programming instructions.
Double Stacking (2) CR2016 Batteries:
The CR2032 3-volt micro lithium coin cell battery
inside of the SAA474U (4-button) remote transmitter can be substituted with (2) CR2016 3-volt
batteries. This can increase the range between
65-75%, depending on the surroundings.
Procedure:
1. Insert a small flat head screwdriver into the
notch on the bottom of the remote transmitter.
2. Gently twist the screwdriver to spreading apart
the two halves of the remote transmitter.
3. Open up the remote transmitter exposing the
CR2032 battery and slide it out.
4. Slide (2) CR2016 batteries into the battery
holder with the “+” facing upwards. (It may be
easier to slide one battery in at a time. With the
first battery in place, slide the second battery
between the PC board and battery.)
5. Prior to closing the two halves of the remote
transmitter, verify the batteries are installed
correctly by pressing any of the buttons. The
green LED indicator should illuminate when a
button is pressed. If the LED does not illuminate,
double-check the direction of the batteries. The
“+” should be facing upwards matching the “+”
on the battery retaining clip.
6. Snap together the two halves of the remote
transmitter.

UNGO – Application Notes
Obtaining a Tachometer Reference
Signal
The tachometer reference signal is an essential
signal for the safe operation of a remote start
system. This signal informs the remote start
module that the vehicle has successfully started
and is running. It can also determine whether the
vehicle is idling at a safe RPM level. In the event
the vehicles idle is racing or below safer operating
level, the remote start module will shut down.
To test for a tachometer wire, a multi-meter
capable of test AC voltage must be used. The
tachometer wire will show between 1V and
6V AC. In multi-coil systems, the system can
learn individual coil wires. Individual coil wires
in a multi-coil ignition system will register lower
amounts of AC voltage. Also, if necessary, the
system can use a fuel injector control wire for
engine speed sensing. Common locations for
a tachometer wire are at the ignition coil, back
of the gauge cluster, engine computers, and
automatic transmission computers.
How to Find a Tachometer Wire with a MultiMeter:
remote start module.
It is highly recommended to solder this connection, due to the heat generated inside the engine
bay. Using t-taps or scotch-locks are likely to fail
due to the heat.
Fuel Injector Wire:
1. Examine the individual fuel injectors and determine which wire(s) are common on each fuel
injector.
2. The “different” colored wire can be used for
the tachometer reference signal for the remote
start module. (Only one fuel injector wire is
necessary.)
3. Teach tachometer reference signal to the
remote start module.
It is highly recommended to solder this connection, due to the heat generated inside the engine
bay. Using t-taps or scotch-locks are likely to fail
due to the heat.
Tachometer Reference Options
Tachless
1. Set the multi-meter to ACV or AC voltage (12V
or 20V is fine)
2. Attach the (-) probe of the meter to chassis
ground.
3. Start the vehicle and allow it to reach its normal
idle speed.
4. Probe the wire you suspect of being the
tachometer wire with the red probe of the meter.
5. If it’s the correct wire the meter will read
between 1V and 6V.
If programmed to the voltage sense setting, the
unit will crank the starter for a preset time during.
Once the starter has been engaged, the system
will check the voltage level to verify the engine is
running.
Multi-Coil Systems:
Some vehicles have many accessories, which are
turned on during remote start activation. In these
vehicles, the variation of voltage between the
engine off and the vehicle running is very slight
and the remote start module may “think” the vehicle has not started. This can cause the remote
start module to shut down after the vehicle has
been started. If this is the case, the Voltage
Check Level must be set to the LOW position.
1. Examine the individual coils and determine
which wires are common on each coil. (Example:
2002 Chevy Pick-up: Each coil has 4 wires, three
common wires on each coil and the 4th wire
changes.)
2. The “different” colored wire can be used for the
tachometer reference signal for the remote start
module. (Only one coil wire is necessary.)
3. Teach tachometer reference signal to the
157
When using tachless operation, it is essential to
determine the correct crank time to prevent damage to the starter. It may take several remote start
activations to determine the crank time.
UNGO – Application Notes / Terms
Voltage sensing is not recommended in areas
that experience extreme cold temperatures. The
resistance in the vehicles wiring increases which
can cause intermittent remote start reliability.
454T: Alternator RPM Monitor
The 454T Alternator RPM Monitor is for use with
remote engine starts as an alternative to direct
connection to the vehicle’s tachometer or fuel
injector wire. It detects electrical spikes in the
vehicles electrical system and converts them into
an output that simulates a tachometer.
Passlock 2
The Passlock 2 system must see the correct
resistance code at the correct time. When the
ignition switch is turned to the crank position, the
“Bulb Check” wire is switched to ground. This
starts a time window during which the instrument
cluster panel (IPC) analyzes the resistance code
(R-Code). If the R-Code is valid and is received
in the proper window of time, the IPC sends a
code via data bus to the PCM to enable the fuel
injection system. If the key cylinder itself is pulled
out or damaged, it will not generate the resistance
code and the vehicle will not run.
Passkey 3
Remote Start Terms and Definitions
Immobilizer (a.k.a.: Transponder)
The Immobilizer uses an antenna ring around the
ignition cylinder to energize a small transponder
chip hidden in the ignition key. When the ignition is turned on, the chip is energized and the
antenna rings sends the code to the Immobilizer
control unit. The vehicle will only start if the code
matches the one programmed into the vehicle.
Passkey/VATS
The Passkey/VATS system consists of four parts:
the Passkey cylinder, the ignition switch, the
instrument cluster panel (IPC), and the power
train control module (PCM). The system requires
that the key cylinder be mechanically turned using
a key. When the key cylinder is properly turned,
it generates a resistance code (R-Code), which is
sent to the IPC. The vehicle will only start if the
R-Codes match the key and key cylinder.
The Immobilizer uses an antenna ring around the
ignition cylinder to energize a small transponder
chip hidden in the ignition key. When the ignition is turned on, the chip is energized and the
antenna rings sends the code to the Immobilizer
control unit. If the code is incorrect the vehicle
will not start.
PATS
Passive Anti-Theft System (PATS) uses a specially
programmed key to start the vehicle, similar to
the Immobilizer. It uses an antenna ring around
the ignition cylinder to energize a small transponder chip hidden in the ignition key. When the
ignition is turned on, the chip is energized and the
antenna ring sends the code to the PATS control
unit. If the code is incorrect the vehicle will not
start.
Resistor
One of the components necessary in interface
with VATS factory anti-theft systems. A resistor(s)
are used in conjunction to reproduce the resistance code (R-Code) embedded in the vehicle’s
key

UNGO – Remote Start Diagnostics
Remote Start Diagnostics
The starter continues to crank even though
the engine has started.
In the event that a remote start system fails to
start, or stops running after a short period of time,
you can retrieve the source of the shutdown from
the UNGO ProSecurity system
1. Has the tach wire been learned? See Tach
Learning section of the installation guide.
2. Is the tach wire receiving the correct information? Either the wrong tach wire has been used,
or a bad connection exists.
1. Turn the Ignition off
2. Press and hold the Override switch
3. Turn the ignition on then off
4. Release the Override switch
5. Press and release the Override switch.
The LED will now report the last system shutdown by flashing one of the following patterns for
a period of one minute.

Remote Start Troubleshooting
The ignition comes on, but the starter will
not crank
1. Does it start with the key in the ignition? If so,
does the vehicle have a VATS Pass-Key system?
2. Will it start with the brake pedal depressed?
(Make sure to disconnect the brake shutdown
when performing this test.) If so, it may have a
brake/starter interlock.
3. Is the correct starter wire being energized?
Check by energizing it yourself with a fused test
lead.
The starter cranks for six seconds but does
not start.
1. Either the wrong ignition wire is being energized, the unit’s ignition and accessory wires have
been connected backwards, or the vehicle has
two ignition circuits. Try activating the unit with
the ignition key in the “run” position. If the vehicle
then runs normally, retest your ignition system.
165
The climate control system does not work
while the unit is operating the vehicle.
Either the wrong accessory wire is being energized or more than one ignition or accessory wire
must be energized in order to operate the climate
control system.
The remote start will not activate.
1. Check harnesses and connections. Make sure
the harnesses are fully plugged into the remote
start module. Make sure there are good connections to the vehicle wiring.
2. Check voltage and fuses. Use a meter and
check for voltage between the red wire in the 5
pin ribbon harness and the black ground wire. If
you have less than battery voltage, check both
30A fuses on the relay satellite. Also make sure
that the ground wire is going to a chassis ground
and not to something under the dash.
3. Check diagnostics. The diagnostics will tell you
which shutdown is active or not connected.
The remote start will activate but the starter
never engages.
1. Check for voltage on the purple starter wire two
seconds after the remote start becomes active. If
there is voltage present, skip to Step 4. If there is
not voltage present, advance to Step 2.
2. Check the 30A fuses.
3. Check diagnostics. If the gray/black wire is
detecting ground upon activation, the starter will
not crank.
4. Make sure the purple starter wire is connected
to the correct starter wire.
5. Does the vehicle have an immobilizer? Some
immobilizer systems will not allow the vehicle to
crank if active.
6. Check connections. The two red heavy gauge
input wires on the relay satellite should have solid
connections. “T-taps”, or “scotch locks” are not
UNGO – Remote Start Diagnostics
recommended for any high current heavy gauge
wiring. Also, if the vehicle has more than one
12-volt input wire, then connect one red wire to
each.
The vehicle starts, but immediately dies
1. Does the vehicle have an immobilizer? The
vehicles immobilizer will cut the fuel and/or spark
during unauthorized starting attempts.
2. Is the remote start programmed for voltage
sense? If so, the start time may not be set high
enough, or you may have to adjust the voltage
threshold in programming. Voltage sense will not
work on some vehicles.
3. Check diagnostics. Sometimes a shutdown
will become active during cranking or just after
cranking.
The vehicle starts, but the starter keeps running
1. Is the system programmed for engine checking off or voltage sense? When programmed for
either of these features, the engine cranks for the
preprogrammed crank time regardless of how
long it takes to start the vehicle to actually start.
Adjust to a lower cranking time.
2. Was the Tach Learn successful? The LED must
light solidly and brightly to indicate a successful
learn.
3. Make sure that there is a tach signal right at the
purple/white tach input wire of the remote start.
If not, recheck the connection to the vehicle’s
tach wire and make sure the wire is not broken or
shorted to ground leading to the remote start.
The vehicle will start and run only for about
10 seconds
1. Is the remote start programmed for voltage
sense? Try programming the unit for low voltage reference. If this does not work, a tach wire
should be used.
2. Check diagnostics.

Special Thanks to the Mobile Dynamics
Toronto Campus for their assistance in
the creation of this portion of the Clarion

Car Audio Reference Guide
Car Audio Reference Guide
This section of the 2008 Clarion Application
Guide provides some basic guidelines, tips and
tricks related to the installation and design of
a car audio system. This section in no way
replaces proper training, certification, mentorship
and experience.
Tools
Clarion recommends
that high quality tools
be used at all times.
The use of quality tools
helps to ensure proper
engagement
with
fasteners, a reduced
chance of stripping, rounding over or damage
to the vehicle. This applies to socket sets,
screwdrivers, crimpers, pliers, wrenches, wire
strippers and so forth.
Clarion recommends that only a high
quality Digital Multimeter be used for
testing ALL electrical circuits. Test
lights can cause damage to automotive
computer systems, resulting in
expensive repairs.
When
you
are
installing
a mobile
security, convenience
or remote start system,
you commonly have to
probe many wires. A
tool that makes this very
easy is the Power Probe II. It will indicate both
12V or Ground both with an LED and an audible
tone - meaning you don't need to 'read' a display.
It will also provide power and ground at the test
probe tip - ideal for testing door locks and other
electrical components.
Clarion strongly recommends that all electrical
connections be soldered. A properly performed
solder connection will start with a good solid
mechanical connection - ie: The wires should
already have a strong mechanical connections typically twisted together. Once the mechanical
179
connection has been established, then the
connection can be heated thoroughly with
the soldering iron and solder flowed into the
connection. Soldering provides an airtight
connection that helps to prevent corrosion.
Once the solder connection is complete and has
cooled, wrap the connection tightly with good
quality electrical tape. Clarion recommends 3M
vinyl tape.
An alternative, though less reliable than soldering
is the use of high quality, properly sized butt
connectors and a good quality crimping tool.
Clarion recommends the Klein 1005 or equivalent
crimping tool.
Clarion does not recommend the 'twist and tape'
method of making electrical connections.
With the increasing use of data connections in
the car, an the need to interface with Vehicle
Speed Sensor (VSS) wires for Navigation System
installations, Clarion recommends that all
installation facilities have at least one portable
oscilloscope available. An oscilloscope will
dispplay voltage waveforms on its screen relative
to a fixed time base. The oscilloscope can also be
used to set amplifier gains to prevent clipping and
distortion through the audio signal path.
Car Audio Reference Guide
Vehicle preparation and precaution
Before beginning work on a vehicle, inspect
it thoroughly for pre-existing damage or nonfunctioning circuitry. Show the customer any
problems BEFORE you begin work on the vehicle.
Clarion recommends the use of a work order form
for each vehicle that has a vehicle diagram on the
rear of the form. The installer can indicate any
pre-installation conditions and have the customer
initial/sign the form.
If you will be required to disconnect the battery,
ensure that you have the security code for the
source unit - if applicable.
When working under the hood, use fender covers at all times to prevent damage. Use magnetic
screw trays to hold nuts, bolts and screws, and
store all tools on a cart next to the vehicle. Do
not rest tools on the engine, cowl or fenders of
the car.
The image above shows an electrical representation of a spoken conversation. The high points
represent high sound levels and low areas represent little or no sound.
Frequency
If you look at sound using an oscilloscope, you
can see the voltage moving up and down relative
to time. If you are listening to a pure tone - like the
'test tone' on your TV in the middle of the night,
then waveform will look something like the graph
below.
When working inside the car use carpet and seat
protectors. If you will be making electrical connections, protect the area below where you are
working with a drop cloth capable of handling
drops of solder.
When working with the door open installing a
remote start (or similar), especially on expensive
cars, protect the door sill with masking tape. This
will help prevent scratches from occurring.
Period
Car Audio Physics
Understanding some of the basic fundamentals
of physics is required to comfortably sell and
install car audio products.
Sound
Sound is essentially changes in air pressure.
These compressions and rarefactions cause
minute bones inside our ears to vibrate, which
our brains translate into perceived sound.
The period is the amount of time between two
identical points on a repeating waveform. We
measure this in seconds or milliseconds. If you
take the reciprocal of this number, you get frequency. For example - If you measure a period
using a scope of 0.025 seconds, then take the
reciprocal (1/0.025) you will see the frequency is
40Hz.
Amplitude
The Amplitude of a sound describes its intensity,
loudness or strength. Later on we will explain the
Decibel scale and how it relates to sound pressure measurement and observation.
180
Car Audio Reference Guide
Frequency Response
If you look at the sound coming from a speaker,
you want all the different frequencies to be reproduced at the same level. This is known as the
frequency response of a speaker. A frequency
response graph, shows the output level (of a
speaker, amplifier, source unit, etc). The X-axis
represents the different frequencies measure and
the Y-axis represents how strong the output is.
Ideally, a speaker would produce all frequencies
at exactly the same level, but due to the physical
limitations of every speaker, this is not possible.
The graph below shows the frequency response
of a typical high-quality full-range speaker.
The goal of a high quality car audio system is
to accurately reproduce a musical performance.
When sound is recorded in stereo (two channels),
it is of the utmost importance that the sound
coming from each channel arrives at the listeners
ear simultaneously. This can be achieved through
proper speaker placement, or compensated for
by using time alignment or digital delays.
Octave
An Octave is a way of describing a doubling or
halving of a frequency. If a 1,000Hz (1kHz) tone is
being played, a tone one octave higher will be at
2.0 kHz. If the second tone were an octave lower,
it would be at 500Hz (0.5 kHz).
Decibel
This is one of the most misunderstood terms in
modern audio discussions. The BEL is the unit of
measure used to describe sound intensity. It was
first defined by Alexander Graham Bell. The Bel is
an extremely large unit of measure, so the Decibel
unit is more commonly used. 1 Decibel (dB) is
equal to 0.1 Bel.
Phase
Phase refers to the relative arrival time of two
signals or waveforms. Imagine two speakers
playing the exactly same sound, set up in your
living room. If you were to take one speaker and
move it further away from you, the time it takes for
the sound to arrive at your ears changes. This is
known as a delay or phase shift. The graph below
shows a phase shift between two sine waves.
The Decibel was created in response to numerous
tests on human hearing to describe sound
intensities (volume).
1dB = The smallest perceivable change in intensity
within the most sensitive range of human hearing
(between 3 and 4 kHz)
3dB = The smallest perceivable difference in
intensity at all frequencies.
10dB = A perceived doubling or halving of sound
intensity
In terms of electrical signals, decibels can still
be used to describe the difference between two
voltages or amplitudes. This is quite convenient
when talking about power coming from an
amplifier, since each time we want to increase
the perceived output from a speaker system by
3dB, we need to double the power coming from
an amp.
181
Car Audio Reference Guide
Example: A speaker has an efficiency rating of
88dB 1W/1M. This means that when this speaker
is installed in an infinite baffle (the wall of a very
large room for example) and powered with 1
Watt of power, it will produce 88dB of sound. If
we want to increase the output of this speaker
to 91dB, we need 2 Watts of power from the
amplifier. The following chart outlines the power
required for this speaker to reproduce different
sound levels:

You can see that the power being produced by an
amplifier needs to vary over an enormous range to
reproduce music at different listening levels. You
can also see that significant amounts of power
are required to reproduce realistic listening levels,
which is why high quality car audio amplifiers are
very important.
Limits of Sound
How loud a speaker can play depends on two
important criteria.
1 - How much power a speaker can handle.
2 - How far the speaker cone can move.
Thermal power handling is determined primarily
by the physical size of the voice coil assembly,
and by the materials used to construct the voice
coil. An inexpensive speaker may use a cardboard
voice coil former with very thin copper wire with
only one winding layer. if a great deal of power
is sent to the speaker, the voice coil will heat up
quickly and become damaged. Conversely, a
large diameter voice coil, wound on an aluminum
former (for example) with four layers of copper
can clearly withstand more heat.
Thermal power handling can also be affected
by the design of the components surrounding
the voice coil. SET (Spider Exhaust Technology)
allows air flow in and around the voice coil
assembly to help remove heat. A tighter gap
between the voice coil and the top plate also
helps to transfer heat away from the voice coil
and reduce termperatures. And finally, a vented
pole piece allows airflow around the inside of the
voice coil for cooling from the inside.
Physical power handling is determined by the
physical dimensions and capabilities of the
components used to construct a loudspeaker. The
spider and surround (suspension components)
control cone motion (and center the cone in the
voice coil gap). These are often chosen carefully
to be the limiting factor in excursion capability so
that physical damage doesn't occur due to overexcursion. Most often, if the suspension is not
stiff enough, the voice coil former will run into the
bottom plate as the speaker moves rearward.
Physical power handling is controlled through
proper enclosure design and by sending the
proper signals to the speaker.
Small speakers should not be sent large amounts
of low frequency information - you wouldn't
expect a subwoofer to try and reproduct bass in
182
Car Audio Reference Guide
your car. A crossover (active of passive) should
be used to limit low frequencies sent to small
drivers.
In the case of a subwoofer enclosure, there are
two factors that will determine power handling.
In both sealed and vented enclosures, the size of
the enclosure has a great effect on the physical
power handling. A larger enclosure offers a 'softer'
air spring to resist the motion of the cone.
In a vented enclosure, the driver "see's" the
enclosure as being nearly infinitely large below the
tuning frequency. It is of the utmost importance
that the tuning frequency be low enough to
control cone motion. Clarion recommends the
use of a subsonic filter when a vented enclosure
is used with a high (>35Hz) tuning frequency to
prevent speaker damage.
183

Relays
Relay Circuits
The ability to switch high current electrical circuits using
low current control systems
has made the use of relays
extremely popular. Relays
can also be used to perform
relatively elaborate processes - including conversion
from positive to negative
pulsing, negative to positive
pulsing, momentary to constant pulsing, retained
accessory circuits and so forth. This section will
look at the basic connections on a relay and
some of the most basic circuits. A few minutes of
searching on the Internet will reveal some of the
more complex circuits available.
This circuit allows multiple loads to be switched
from a single relay. This is convenient for using a
single remote turn on wire from a source unit to
turn on multiple amplifiers.
Relay Connections
The following circuit will take a positive input
(front a door trigger for example) and convert it to
a negative output.
The most popular (and recommended) relays are
available from Bosch and Potter and Brumfeld.
These SPDT (Single Pole Double Throw) relays
can handle in excess of 20A of current while only
requiring 200mA (0.2 A) to energize the circuit.
This diagram shows the pin locations and labels
on the bottom of a relay.

Common Car Audio Math
The following section provides a simple and easy
to use reference for some of the more commonly
utilized mathematical formulas in the car audio
industry.
Ohm's Law
Ohm's Law was named after Georg Ohm, a
mathematician and physicist, born in 1789 and
lived to be 65 while living in Bavaria. Mr. Ohm
created the foundation for the basic units of
electricity which are now accepted as a standard
worldwide. Ohm's Law describes the relationship
between Power, Voltage, Current and Resistant in
AC, DC and RF (Radio Frequency) circuits and is
the foundation for all electronic circuit design.
Voltage (measured in Volts) is a measurement of
electrical potential between two points. One Volt
is the potential difference required to move one
Coulomb of charge between two points in a circuit while using one Joule of energy.
Current (measured in Amps) describes the rate of
electron flow in a circuit. One amp is equivalent
to the flow of one Coulomb (6.25x108 electrons)
per second.
Resistance (measured in Ohms) is the unit of
resistance to current flow. One Ohm of resistance will allow one Amp of current to pass when
a potential of one Volt is applied to a circuit.
The Greek letter Omega is universally used to
describe Ohms.
Power (measured in Watts) is a measurement of
electrical work being done. One Watt is equivalent to one Joule of energy being transferred or
dissipated in one second.
Joules is the Metric unit of energy (replaces
Calorie) and is equivalent to the amount of work
needed to apply a force of one Newton over a
distance of 1 Meter. 1 Calorie = 4.184 Joules
The above chart provides all the common formulas related to Ohm's Law.
185
These units are used to describe the function of
any electrical circuit. Using the Ohm's Law wheel
on the left side of this page, you can calculate any
third unit when you know two of them.
Car Audio Reference Guide
Resistance Formula Calculations
Current Formula Calculations
How to read the Ohm's Law wheel
Resistance = Voltage / Current
Resistance = Voltage2 / Power
Resistance = Power / Current2
Example:
If you know a circuit has a voltage potential of 12
Volts and 6 Amps of current is passing through
it, then you can calculate the resistance in that
circuit: 12 ÷ 6 = 2. The circuit has a resistance of
2 Ohms.
Example:
If you know a device is dissipating 100W of
energy and has a resistance of 4 Ohms, you can
calculate the current being passed through the
device: —(100 ÷ 4) = 5 Amps
Power Formula Calculations
Example:
If you know a device is dissipating 100W of power
and 12V is being applied to the device, you can
calculate the current passing through the device:
100 ÷ 12 = 8.33A
Voltage Formula Calculations
Example:
If you know a device (a resistor for example) has
2A of current being passed through it and has
a resistance of 10 Ohms, then the voltage drop
across the resistor will be: 2 x 10 = 20V
186
Car Audio Reference Guide
Resistance Circuit Calculations
Parallel
There are two ways of connecting devices (or
loads) together - series and parallel.
Series Circuits
When multiple devices are wired in Series then
use the following formula:
Rtotal = R1 + R2 + R3 + R...
The total resistance is the sum of each resistance.
Example:
A circuit with four 2-Ohm loads wired in Series
has a total resistance of: 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 8 Ohms
Parallel Circuits
When multiple resistive devices are wired in parallel, the formula is slightly more complex:
1/Rtotal = 1/R1 + 1/R2 + 1/R3 + 1/R...
This is know as calculating the sum of reciprocal
resistances.
Example:
A circuit with four 8-Ohm loads wired in parallel
has a total resistance of:
1 / ((1/8)+(1/8)+(1/8)+(1/8) = 2 Ohms

So how do you wire a device (most commonly
a speaker) in series or parallel? The drawings
below described each method.
The example above shows a Dual Voice Coil
subwoofer with both voice coils wired in parallel. The two positive connections are both connected to the positive terminal of the amplifier
and both negative connections are connected to
the negative terminal of the amplifier. If this were
a PXW1051 with dual 2 Ohm voice coils, the load
would be 1 Ohm, if this was a PXW1052 with
duial 4 Ohm voice coils the net load would be 2
Ohms.
Series Parallel Circuits
This example is more complex. When multiple
drivers are in use, you can wire each driver using
series or parallel, then wire the set of drivers in
either series or parallel. When multiple drivers
are being used, Clarion recommends wiring each
speaker in series with the other. In the unlikely
event of a speaker failure, this provides the most
protection against further damage.
Series
The example above shows a Dual Voice Coil
subwoofer with both voice coils wired in series.
If this were a PXW1051 with dual 2 Ohm voice
coils, the net load would be 4 Ohms. If this was
a PXW1051, with dual 4 Ohm voice coils, the net
load would be 8 Ohms.
187
In this example, if we are using two PXW1051
subwoofers, the net load would be 2 Ohms. If
these were PXW1052 subwoofer, the load would
be 4 Ohms.

Passive Crossovers
When connecting multiple speakers to an amplifier, passive crossover components are often
required to filter the signal going to each speaker.
For example, if you connect a midrange and a
tweeter, you don't want bass to go to the tweeter
and you don't want highs to go to the midrange.
Similarly, if you bridge a woofer to a two channel
amp and a set of full-range speakers, you only
want bass to be heard from the woofer and only
mids and highs from the full-range speakers. This
section will describe how to calculate the appropriate component (capacitor or inductor) values
to build these systems.
Nomenclature
Capacitors have two ratings - a capacitance value
and a voltage. The amount of energy storage in a
capacitor is measured in Farads. Since the Farad
is a very large unit, most capacitors, especially
those used in filter circuits are measured in 1 millionth of a farad, or a microfarad. The greek letter
mu (μ) is used to describe micro:
1μF = 1/1,000,000 of a Farad and is pronounced
1 microFarad.
Common values for filter capacitors range
between 1μF and 250μF.
1mH = 1/1000 of a Henry and is pronounced 1
milliHenry.
Inductors are rated in Henries. Again, this is a very
large unit of measurement, and in filter networks,
we use 1 thousanth of a Henry or a milliHenry.
High-Pass filters
A high-pass filter allows only frequencies higher
than the selected crossover point to pass through
the circuit. We use non-polarized capacitors
wired in series with the load to create these filter
networks. The equation above outlines how to
calculate the correct component value. The chart
below outlines common capacitor values for
common speakers sizes in a 4 Ohm impednace.
Load impedance is ciritcally important to passive
crossover component value. If you change the
impedance, you need to recalculate the component value.

Low-Pass filter
Passive Crossover Wiring - Mixed mode
Combinations of high- and low-pass filters can
be combined amongst different speakers. This
is commonly used when wiring mixed-mode
systems. The illustration below shows the wiring drawing for a pair of 6x9 speakers and a
subwoofer on a single two channel amplifier. The
subwoofer would be connected to the bridged
terminals and the 6x9s would be wired in stereo.
Using the crossover information provided previously, we would use a 250uF capacitor on each
6x9 and a 6.6mH inductor on the subwoofer.
Not surprisingly, a low-pass filter allows only
those frequencies below the selected crossover
point to pass un-attenuated. Low-Pass filters are
typically used with subwoofers, as you don't want
mids and highs to be reproduced.
In car audio, we use an inductor (also called a
choke) as a low-pass filter. The formula above
allows you to calculate the appropriate inductor
value. For most single 4 Ohm subwoofers, a 6.0
or 6.6mH inductor works well.
189
In application, wether the passive component is
installed on the positive wire or the negative, it will
have no effect on the performance of the circuit.
However, it is common to wire all speakers in the
same fashion for simplicity and to make troubleshooting and adjustments later on.

Subwoofer Enclosure Guide
Even the most expensive, complex subwoofer on
the planet won’t sound good unless it is installed
in a properly designed and constructed enclosure. The following section outlines subwoofer
enclosure design and construction guidelines.
Construction Notes
All enclosure should be constructed of 3/4” thickness North American-produced MDF or highquality plywood with one finished side (installed
facing the inside of the enclosure). The use of
particle board will result in substandard performance and could potentially lead to premature
speaker failure.
• All enclosure joints must be secured with
• When calculating enclosure volumes, please
remember to include the volume of the subwoofer,
the vent(s) and/or brace(s) in your calculations.
• For optimal performance from your subwoofer
enclosure, the ideal ratio of Width to Height to
Depth should ideally match the Greek Golden
Rectangle ratio of W=1.0, D=0.618 and H=1.618.
This ratio of dimensions results in a reduction of
standing waves inside the enclosure and the best
possible sonic performance.
• Where applicable, the inside and outside edge
of all vents should be rounded over (radiussed)
to smooth airflow over the edge of the vent. This
can be done with a router and a round-over bit.
The use of Aeroports (or equivalent) also works
very well.
screws or nails.
Subwoofer Enclosure Application Chart
• Wood glue (or equivalent) must be used along
the edges of all joints.
• All panel joints should be sealed with appropri-
ate caulking material - latex or rope caulk. Do not
use Silicone sealant - the gases that are released
during the curing process may be harmful to the
adhesives used to assemble a subwoofer.
• Large panels should be reinforced with an
internal brace to reduce panel flexing due to the
pressures created inside the speaker cabinet.
Likewise, around the mounting face of the subwoofer, braces should run from the front panel
to the rear panel of the enclosure to further
strengthen it.
There are many different styles of subwoofer
enclosures - sealed, vented, bandpass, transmission line, aperiodic, isobaric and multi-chamber
vented - just to name a few.
Each enclosure has different strengths,
characteristics and weaknesses. The chart below
provides a generalised overview of the differences
between some of the most common enclosures.
Clarion recommends the use of Sealed (Acoustic
Suspension) or Vented (Bass Reflex) enclosure
for our subwoofers. These enclosures are the
easiest to design, offers the best dynamic and
transient response characteristics and is the
most tolerance of design and construction errors
- bottom line, they always sound great!
• Clarion does not recommend the use of passive
crossover components with our subwoofers
(Inductors or Chokes). We recommend that a
dedicated subwoofer amplifier with an integrated
electronic crossover be used to achieve maximum
performance from the sub-bass system.
• Where applicable, Clarion recommends the use
of a subsonic filter in ported enclosure applications.

Subwoofer Enclosure Calculations
Clarion offers an extensive line of high quality,
product specific subwoofer enclosures. Clarion
dealers will, on occasion, be called upon to custom build a subwoofer enclosure from scratch
to better maximise the space inside a vehicle,
provide room for additional speakers, integrate
an elaborate amp rack or to perform a completely
custom installed. The following instructions outline the steps required to design a custom-sized
subwoofer enclosure.
Step 1: Measurements
The first step is to take careful measurements of
the vehicle in which you want to build the enclosure. You must measure the maximum width,
height and depth, taking into consideration the
ability to install the enclosure into the vehicle
through the trunk/hatch opening. Also consider
bracketry, seatbelt enclosure and other obstacles
in the trunk.
Example:
Trunk Width: 35.0 inches
Trunk Height: 14 Inches
Desired Max Depth: 11 Inches
The Maximum desired depth and/or the trunk
opening will determine just how big the enclosure
can be. You can always make it smaller.
Step 2: Rough Calculation
Now that you have some basic numbers, you
can calculate the maximum possible enclosure
volume. Clarion strongly suggests that 3/4" or
thicker MDF or good quality 'one side good' plywood be used for all enclosures. In our example
we will use 3/4" material.
Example:
Take each dimension and subtract the wood
thickness:
Internal Width: 35.0 - (2 x 0.75) = 33.5
Internal Height: 14 - (2 x 0.75) = 12.5
Internal Depth: 11.0 - (2 x 0.75) = 9.5
191
Multiply these numbers together to come up
with an internal volume:
33.5 x 12.5 x 9.5 = 3978.125 cubic inches
Divide by 1728 to convert this measurement into
cubic feet:
3978.125 ÷ 1728 = 2.30 ft3
This is the largest air volume (not including woofer, port or brace displacement you can use. You
can now select the subwoofers you want based
on this information.
Step 3: Subwoofer Selection
Clarion subwoofer spec sheets include several
popular and highly effective enclosure designs.
Using the volume calculated above, you can
choose any driver or combination of drivers you
want to occupy this space.
Example:
In our example, we have a maximum gross
volume of 2.30 cubic feet. Looking through the
Application Guide - we see that a few of our
options are:
The PXW1252 requires a net volume of 1.7
cubic feet in a ported enclosure.
Two PXW1252 woofers require a net volume of
1.6 cubic feet in a sealed enclosure
Two PXW1052 require a net volume of 2.0 cubic
feet in a ported enclosure.
Three PXW1052 subwoofers require a net volume of 1.5 cubic feet in a sealed enclosure.
One PXW1552 requires a net volume of 1.5
cubic feet in a sealed enclosure
We'll go with a pair of PXW1052 drivers in a
vented enclosure.
Step 4: Final Volume Calculations
Knowing the maximum width and height of
the enclosure, so we can modify the depth of
the enclosure to create the perfect net internal
volume.
Car Audio Reference Guide
Example - Vent Volume
The vent volume calculation goes as follows:
The spec sheet outlines the need for two vents,
each with an internal diameter of 2.5 inches
each with a length of 8.25 inches. To calculate
the volume of each vent, we need to determine
how much space those vents will occupy in the
enclosure:
Area of a circle formula: Pi x R2 = 3.1416 x R x R
Where R is the radius of the outside of the vent.
Most round vents are made of ABS plastic drainage pipe with a wall thickness of 0.125 - 0.25
inches. For a 2.5" pipe, the outside diameter
would be approximately 2.75 inches.
Part of the vent extends through the face of the
enclosure, so we can subtract the thickness of
the front panel of the enclosure from the volume
calculation.
3.1416 x 1.375 x 1.375 x (8.25 - 0.75) = 44.546
cubic inches.
sion calculation would go as follows:
Convert cubic feet to cubic inches:
1.5 x 1728 = 2592 cubic inches.
Divide by internal height:
2592 ÷ 12.5 = 207.36
Divide by internal width:
207.36 ÷ 33.5 = 6.189
6.189 is the internal depth of the enclosure. Add
the thickness of the front and rear panels and you
have the outside depth of the enclosure:
6.189 + 0.75 + 0.75 = 7.689
You may need to massage the width or height
dimensions of the enclosure to provide adequate
mounting depth and port clearance for your
design. You can alter any dimension necessary
to achieve the desired result.
We have two vents, so we double that volume:
44.546 x 2 = 89.09 cubic inches
Then convert back to cubic feet:
88.03 ÷ 1728 = 0.05 cubic feet.
Example - Total Volume
We need to add the air volume required to the
displacement of any objects inside the enclosure.
Here are the items we need to consider:
Net Air volume: 2.0 cubic feet
Driver displacement: 0.12 cubic feet each
Vent Displacement: 0.05 cubic feet total
Total air volume = 2.0 + 0.12 + 0.12 + 0.05 =
2.29 cubic feet.
For this example, the dimensions are within 1%
of the target volume, and we can use the 35 x 14
x 11 dimensions.
Step 4a: Alternate Volume Calculations
If we needed a smaller volume, let's say 1.5 cubic
feet gross air space, then the enclosure dimen-

Amplifier Installation
Power Cable Sizing
When installing an amplifier in a modern vehicle,
careful consideration needs to be paid to power
wire connections. High power amplifiers can
easily consume significant amounts of current easily exceeding 100A+ of current.
Proper power wire sizing is paramount in allowing
an amplifier to make its rated power. The chart
below outlines the power cable requirements to a
single amplifier.
Ground Connections
Wiring Protection
It is paramount that any power wire run through
the car, be it a large gauge cable to power and
amplifier or a small wire to power an accessory
such as an overhead monitor, be fused.
Imagine the following scenario - a large audio
system is installed in a vehicle - a 1/0 AWG power
cable is run from the battery to a distribution
block at the rear of the car. The car gets into an
accident - it is T-Boned on the side of the car the
power wire runs down. The impact pinches the
power, shorting it directly to ground. This could
result in the battery exploding or at least, wires
melting and catching fire.
Clarion recommends the use of an ANL or AGU
fuse holder on all power wires. When connecting
any cable to the battery, a fuse must be installed
within 8 inches of the battery terminal. Clarion
does not recommend the use of circuit breakers. Their failure mode (what happens when the
device does not operate as intended) does not
guarantee that the circuit will be protected in the
event of a short circuit.
193
When installing an amplifier, it is paramount that
the ground connection and path back to the
battery and alternator be capable of handling
even more current than the audio system will
utilize. The reason is that the factory electrical
system (lights, fans, computers, sensors, ignition
system, etc) is already using these connections
to operate the vehicle. Any cable you add to
the positive circuitry, will need to be added to
the ground path at the same time. The most
important of which is the cable running from the
negative terminal of the battery to the chassis.
On many new vehicles, the body and chassis
panels are not welded together, but instead glued
using high strength epoxies. These connections
will not pass current - making the chassis of the
car unsuitable for grounding an amplifier. Clarion
strongly recommends running a cable of equal
size to that of the power wire to the negative
terminal of the amplifier. This ground wire must
also be grounded at the rear of the vehicle.
If you run a 4 AWG power cable to an amplifier,
run a 4 AWG ground cable at the same time.
This will allow for significantly increased current
carrying capacity, result in less voltage drop and
allow your amplifiers to produce more power.
