• Protect your head unit with the ECLIPSE
Security Network (ESN) and your secret PIN
number.
• Cassette deck ESN-security with a CD
changer (or stand-alone PIN security)
ESN-Security can be had in a cassette deck
if the 4502/4441/4440 is connected to the
5083 or CH5061 CD Changer, you define a
personal “Key Disc”, and return the ECLIPSE
“ESN ID/Three Year Warranty Card.” Now
your cassette player is in the ECLIPSE
Security Network! With an unalterable
electronic serial number that reads out right
on the display, there’s proof-positive it’s your
own ECLIPSE. And there’s no problem if
you’re still just thinking about buying a CD
changer. For now you can just enter
a 3-digit PIN (Personal Identification No.) to
provide security for the 4502/4441/4440.
• A 5-volt/55Ω preamplifier output (4502)
delivers a pure, strong signal to the amplifier
for noise-free sound reproduction.

HYBRIDECK Technology
Full-Logic Cassette Deck
Non-Azimuth Guide
Full-logic features such as APS (Auto Program
Selector), blank skip, music scan, repeat and auto
tape type selection provide easier and smoother
deck operation. A hard permalloy contoured tape
head in the 4502/4441/4440 ensures smooth tape
transport and uniform tape/head contact for
optimal frequency response. Wow and flutter of
only 0.08% WRMS and a frequency response of
30 ~ 18,000Hz, ±3dB mean outstanding tape
audio performance.
This feature maintains tape travel across the head
at the correct 90° angle to the head. The ultra
high-frequency signal remains stable enough for
playback even at places where stretching during
deck operation has affected the tape’s width.
For optimal audio response, it is crucial that the
tape operating system applies force evenly to the
tape. The standard felt-type slip mechanism used
in conventional models for rewinding the tape
obtains its torque from the friction produced by felt
backed with 2 pieces of resin. This mechanism
was too easily affected by changes in temperature,
humidity and operational wear and tear, as well as
being subject to changes in torque. But with this
new magnetic slip mechanism, torque can be
produced evenly, because the magnetic-based
operation never touches the tape. So the tape runs
evenly and smoothly, regardless of environmental
changes and with no effects from how long the
unit has been used.
Inner Sealed Head
This feature works to remove noise (Normal Ratio:
8dB) from external magnetic sources. This allows
a high S/N ratio to be maintained even in a car
interior.

Quiet & Reliable 2-Motor Mechanism
A plungerless 2-motor mechanism is employed to
enhance reliability, minimize the potential for
damage from mechanical malfunctions, and
eliminate noise associated with conventional
plunger-equipped designs. A DC servo motor
switches operating modes from one motor to
another, so only that motor’s capstan and reel
are in motion, reducing the number of gear
movements during playback by two-thirds, for
smooth and quiet operation.

two-motor mechanism coupled with a nonazimuth guide imparts accurate sound
reproduction in both tape directions. A large
display and multi-function rotary ensure
operational ease. Add the CH5061 or 5083
CD changer to create a full-source
entertainment system. Using the CD
changer, the cassette players are now ESN
(Eclipse Security Network) capable, a unique

Technology Creates an Authentic
Sound Field
Features
ECLIPSE created the world’s first car-use
DSP sound processor using DSP (Digital
Signal Processing) technology to faithfully
and accurately simulate the complicated
acoustic dispersion patterns of real sound
fields. Thanks to technology and data based
on our comprehensive on site analysis of the
architectural and acoustic characteristics of
three types of sound dispersion (direct,
early-reflected and late-reflected) in concert
hall, live music house, cathedral, stadium and
club soundfields, the DSP sound processor can
recreate these soundfields in a car.
Soundfield Configurations
Five factory-presets offer separate and distinct
acoustical simulations. In addition, their
parameters (level & time for early-reflected
sound and late-reflected sound) can be varied
incrementally, and the new parameters can be
stored in 6 user-preset memories. Moreover,
the factory settings can be recalled to their
default values at any time.

ECLIPSE introduces a fully professional
30-band equalizer that sets a new
reference in optimizing a vehicle’s
acoustic environment to achieve perfect
sound. This 30-band 1/3 octave equalizer
offers precise tonal contouring from 25Hz
all the way to 20kHz, covering the full
frequency spectrum. In contrast to a
simpler graphic equalizer that is more
often used to tailor sound to personal
preferences, the 1/3 octave equalizer is
the most effective tool for fine-tailoring a
vehicle’s sound system to produce the
most accurate and pleasing sound with
the smooth band-to-band frequency
transitions that define competitionwinning sound.
EQ2102
Totally Professional
30-Band 1/3 Octave Competition Equalizer
30-Band 1/3 Octave Equalization
The EQ2102 Competition Equalizer is a
professional quality instrument for precision
tonal adjustment as fine as a fraction of a dB. It
is a stereo unit with a single set of 30 EQ
control knobs, each simultaneously controlling
that center frequency on both channels,
eliminating the need to closely match 1 knob or
slider with its equivalent in the other channel.
Having 30 different bands keeps the Q high to
reduce any interaction between frequencies.
Built to meet pro demands using premium
components and sophisticated circuitry, this
flexible equalizer makes all the difference
between a good-sounding system and one that
is superlative.
Competition-Ready
Providing the level of sound quality
performance crucial for sound-offs, precise
adjustment of 30 frequencies in combination
with Real Time Analyzer (RTA) test equipment
and pink noise (at your ECLIPSE installer) will
result in the type of smooth response curve that
is rated so highly in competitions. This same
performance also makes it possible to enjoy the
greatest listening pleasure that a superior
mobile sound system can deliver.
Dedicated Subwoofer Circuit
Along with its controls for 30 different
frequencies, the EQ2102 incorporates a built-in
crossover at 100Hz and dedicated summed
channel subwoofer line output for creating a
monster subwoofer system. This eliminates the
need for the system’s main and satellite
speakers to handle prodigious bass frequencies
and so increases overall system gain and
dynamic range along with less distortion.

Sonic Adjustment Defined
Graphic Equalizer
A graphic equalizer uses a number of
adjustment knobs, each set at a certain
frequency in the audio spectrum. Adjusting the
knob increases or decreases the volume of
sound at that frequency, allowing you to
compensate for sound system inefficiencies.
System Features — 21010
System Features — 21000
• A five-band graphic equalizer allows you to
adjust frequencies to your preference.
• A single-band parametric equalizer
(25 ~ 100Hz) gives you precise control over
subwoofer adjustments.
• Low-pass and high-pass crossovers switch
between two frequency settings to provide
signals for separate subwoofer and
midrange/treble amplification.
• Connect an auxiliary device and control
its use with a front-panel selector switch.
• Corrosion-resistant gold-plated audio
connectors deliver the highest-quality audio
signal to the amplifier.
• Eight preset equalizer bands allow you to
adjust frequencies to your preference.
Common Features
• Input volume controls enable adjustment of
sound levels to eliminate system noise.
• A rotary volume knob and defeat switch
control the master volume for all outputs.
• A front/rear fader adjusts sound distribution
for front or rear passengers.
• Adjustment knobs push in to recess into the
face when not in use.
• The 1/2-DIN size allows multiple installation
options.
• Smart subwoofer control provides a
separate, controlled output ideal for adding a
subwoofer to the system.
• Adjustable turn-on delay (0~4-second) to
match with various system requirements.
Parametric Equalizer
A parametric equalizer operates on the same
principle as a graphic equalizer, except that you
can specify which frequency you want to adjust,
then increase or decrease the volume at that
frequency. Parametric equalizers are used for
critical system adjustments, or specific
adjustments within a set frequency range, such
as the low (subwoofer) frequencies.
Crossover (21010)
A crossover “separates” the sound frequencies
into different channels, then sends each channel
to a different set of speakers based on the ability
of the speaker to reproduce that frequency.
A high-pass crossover separates the high
frequencies from the low at a designated value,
then sends the high signal to an amplifier that
drives speakers optimized to reproduce high
sounds (midranges and tweeters). Conversely, a
low-pass crossover works in the same manner
to send low frequencies to an amplifier that
drives low-frequency speakers (subwoofers).

High-efficiency, highenergy MOSFET power
supply.
Today mobile audio systems’ power
amplification requirements often surpass
those of home high-end systems as the
listening environments are so different
and in the case of vehicles, so much more
demanding and noisy. To address such
specific needs, ECLIPSE introduces a
dedicated subwoofer amplifier meant for
use in the finest systems. Making use of
an amplifier technology and topology
known as Class D which produces the
greatest efficiency of any class of
amplifier operation, the DA7232 CYCLOPS
PowerHouse will effortlessly drive any
subwoofer system to produce the most
awesome low frequencies heard and felt,
yet seamlessly blend with the rest of the
system. ECLIPSE combines well-known
specialist audio manufacturer
Bang&Olufsen ICEpower’s state-of-the-art
1000A audio amplification module with its
proprietary no-compromise audio
technologies to create the ultimate
subwoofer amplifier.
Class D Optimized for Low Frequency
Reproduction
A class D or Pulse Modulation Amplifier (PMA)
switching amplifier design makes use of its output
devices (usually MOSFETS) to pulse on and off at
very high frequencies with a continuously
changing duty cycle. The result is an average
output level which is then converted to an audio
signal by the averaging action of the speakers.
The efficiency of Class D amplifiers reaches over
90% and allows them to generate much less heat
than conventional amplifiers. A Class D amplifier
can therefore be smaller and draw less current all
the while putting out significant power. And
because a dedicated subwoofer amplifier only has
to reproduce a limited bandwidth, i.e. just the low
frequencies, the CYCLOPS can exploit all the
advantages of Class D amplification to the
maximum. ECLIPSE makes use of a new and
innovative Class D/PMA modulation method for
higher performance than conventional Class D
amplification. That’s why Class D amplifiers are
found in most of the powered subwoofers used in
home high-end audio and home theater systems
because they are inherently ideal for reproducing
low frequencies.
Compact but So Powerful
Features
With its compact footprint, the DA7232 CYCLOPS
PowerHouse manages to output 2000W per
channel with vanishingly low total harmonic
distortion and a high S/N ratio. Its high efficiency
makes any forced cooling unnecessary, also
eliminating large and heavy heat sinks even
operating continuously at high power and driving
low impedance loads.
• Maximum power output of 2000W (both
channels) into a 2 ohm load.
• Peak output current in excess of 50A for
virtually limitless power.
• Immense 120dBA dynamic range for effortless
reproduction of the lowest frequencies.
• Built-in protection against over and undervoltage conditions.
• Additional protection for amplifier and speakers
as well as soft clipping and soft start-up
functions.
• Balanced inputs and outputs.
Integrates Seamlessly with Total
System
One measure of an extraordinary subwoofer
system is how it can blend with the rest of the
system speakers. CYCLOPS incorporates a flexible
onboard crossover section incorporating a
subsonic filter as well as a low pass filter. Both
filters are variable to allow setting an optimally
balanced sound between the subwoofers and main
speakers.
Quality Construction Throughout
Built to the same exacting standards as other
models in the Premium Amplifer Series, the
CYCLOPS also boasts high-end amplifier circuit
and construction techniques such as highefficiency high-energy isolated power supplies,
symmetrical layout, high input overload, discrete
protection and audiophile-grade components. This
uncommon level of attention to build and quality in
dedicated subwoofer amplifiers is what makes
CYCLOPS ideal for use in the most demanding
systems.

Power, Control & Intensity
The ECLIPSE Premium Amplifiers are 100%
ECLIPSE, created with our dedication to quality
construction, sonic excellence and flat-out
performance. No current limiting and completely
unregulated power supplies guarantee a neutral,
clean sound quality with virtually unlimited
dynamic power on demand.
Separated Power Supply and Signal
Amplifier Sections
ECLIPSE 34230 high-quality audio systems rely
on separate and independent amplifier power
supply and signal sections to ensure a stable
source of power and clear signal. The benefit of
having separate power and driver stages are even
greater in a car audio environment, with its
significant electrical current, vibrations and
various sources of distortion. The ECLIPSE 34230
delivers generous power without noise.
Interference between the power and driver stages
such as switching distortion and radiated noise are
eliminated. The result is sonic purity and effortless
power.
Symmetrical Layout
The ECLIPSE 34230 utilizes a symmetrical
component layout to achieve superior channel
separation. The right and left channels are
physically isolated to eliminate intermodulation
and achieve excellent separation, resulting in
vastly improved system imaging capability.
Massive Bus Bars
Look for the sizable metal bars used at the power
supply connector of 34230. These bus bars allow
the flow of high current to the PC board more
efficiently without potential meltdown of solder
traces or the added resistance presented by more
parts. Passing all that current through a bus bar
rather than a circuit board solder trace keeps
unwanted heat and resistance to a minimum. The
secondary signal circuit board also has input
power connections to the main PC board using the
same copper bus bar blocks, which helps to keep
the heat out of the delicate, sensitive electronic
components of the amplifier. Less heat and cleaner
sound make for better performance.
High Voltage Input
Even the best-engineered amplifiers often overlook
the obvious. ECLIPSE has engineered very high
input voltage capabilities into the new amplifiers
so that you can take advantage of the full
performance that your high signal voltage headunit
output offers. Without high voltage input
capability, an amplifier will clip prematurely and
create excessive heat in the speaker. Able to handle
input signals of up to 8 volts, these amplifiers are
compatible with virtually any signal source voltage
output used in car audio today and easily cope
with competition-use demands.
ChannelFlex Crossover
The built-in ChannelFlex crossover is designed
with audio quality, flexibility, and simplicity of
system design and installation in mind. This is not
just an ordinary built in crossover though. There
are effectively two separate and distinct crossovers
with a variable subsonic filter in the 34230 and
33250 and switchable slope control for the 33250
and 33230. The switchable slope feature allows for
more precise control of bandwidth limited output
power, which means more sonic accuracy in
subwoofers, midbass drivers, and midrange
drivers without distortion. Since distortion is a
major contributor to premature speaker failures,
the variable subsonic filter in the 34230 and 33250
and switchable slope control for the 33250 and
33230 will make speakers last longer and sound
audibly better.
Pre-Amp Outputs
The 34230, and 33250 all feature crossover preamp level outputs, which make adding additional
amplifiers in the system a simple and
straightforward process. Signal purity is
maintained throughout due to common signal
reference grounds and high signal voltages. It
perfectly complements the simplicity of total
system design using ECLIPSE amplifiers.
Intelligent 7-Way Discrete Protection
Circuitry
Seven-way protection circuitry protects the
amplifiers from accidental misconnections or short
circuits in the audio system. There is thermal
protection (up to 100°C), DC offset, protection
against excessive current on the output side,
voltage output overload, excessive current in the
power supply, reverse polarity power input and
shorted speaker leads. A servo system monitors
each of these circuits and measures them against a
reference. If a condition is determined to be
outside of reference tolerances, the amplifier enters
a protection mode, preventing damage to the amp
and audio system. The protection circuitry is
discrete from the audio signal path, so the audio
signal never passes through protection
components, keeping the audio signal free of
interference, coloration or noise.
Noise Reduction with Low Distortion &
Ultralow Negative Feedback
ECLIPSE amplifiers use very high-quality amp
devices which are inherently less noisy than those
conventionally used by other manufactureres. The
traditional method of reducing distortion is to
“feedback” out-of-phase distortion into the audio
signal. The idea is that two out-of-phase signals
should cancel each other. This does work, but at
the expense of an appealing, open sound, usually
causing a closed-in type of sound devoid of
warmth.The higher-quality components in
ECLIPSE amplifiers and their advanced circuits
make such “bandaid” fixes like too much NFB
wholly unnecessary.
Double-Sided Printed Circuit Boards
ECLIPSE Premium Amplifiers employ 70-micron
copper circuit board traces (twice the thickness of
a conventional copper trace) for superior sound
quality. This technology provides lower distortion
and improved low frequency performance to
significantly increase absolute listening pleasure
in your vehicle.
High-Current, High-Speed Output
Devices
The output devices are capable of generating high
current at high speed. This improves both
frequency response and amplifier damping which
helps control the mechanical movement of the
speaker cone.
High-Efficiency, High-Energy MOSFET
Power Supply
The ECLIPSE power supply uses current draw
from the car’s electrical system more efficiently
to produce higher power.
Audiophile-Grade Component Selection
High-quality components and parts designed
exclusively for audio applications are employed for
a difference that is easily heard.
