DIN Front Mount
This unit can be installed in a dashboard with an opening of the following dimensions:
Check the dashboard opening size by sliding the mounting sleeve into it. If the opening is
not large enough, carefully cut or file as necessary until the sleeve easily slides into the
opening. Do not force the sleeve into the opening or cause it to bend or bow. Check that
there will be sufficient space behind the dashboard for the radio chassis.
Locate the series of bend tabs along the top, bottom and sides of the mounting sleeve.
With the sleeve fully inserted into the dashboard opening, bend as many of the tabs
outward as necessary to firmly secure the sleeve to the dashboard.

Keep the product dry. If it does get wet, wipe it dry immediately. Liquids might contain
minerals that can corrode the electronic circuits.
Keep the product away from dust and dirt, which can cause premature wear of parts.
Handle the product gently and carefully. Dropping it can damage circuit boards and
cases, and can cause the product to work improperly.
Wipe the product with a dampened cloth occasionally to keep it looking new. Do not use
harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to clean the product.
Use and store the product only in normal temperature environments. High temperature
can shorten the life of electronic devices, damage batteries, and distort or melt plastic
parts.
Ignition
The most common source of noise in reception is the ignition system. This is normally due to
the fact that radio is placed relatively close to the ignition system (engine). This type of noise
can be easily detected because it will vary in intensity of pitch with the speed of the engine.
Usually, the ignition noise can be suppressed considerably by using a radio suppression type
high voltage ignition wire and suppressor resistor in the ignition system. (Most vehicles employ
this wire and resistor but it may be necessary to check them for correct operation.) Another
method of suppression is the use of additional noise suppressors. These can be obtained from
most CB/A radio or electronic supply shops.
Interference
Radio reception in a moving environment (automobile) is very different from reception in a
stationary (home). It is very important to understand the difference.
AM reception will deteriorate when passing through a tunnel or when passing under high
voltage lines. Also, noise can be picked up from passing automobiles. Although AM is subject
to environmental noise, it has the ability to received at great distance. This is due to
the fact that broadcasting signals follow the curvature of the earth and are reflected back by the
upper atmosphere.
