THANK YOU FOR CHOOSING BLAUPUNKT!
Congratulations! You are the now the owner of an exceptional car audio amplifier from the audio enthusiasts at
Blaupunkt. Our engineering staff has spent considerable time refining our Velocity series amplifiers in order to
introduce great sound to the consumer. With these products we focus on sonic performance but balanced with
rugged design and flexible installation.
Not only do we offer you a great product but also a supportive owners manual. This manual can be used as a
teaching guide due to its brief, but informative, explanations of amplifier and system design. We are also very
concerned about the end consumer using proper installation techniques for the highest performance possible from
their new audio products. MOST important to us are the concerns with safety and the installation process. Since our
Blaupunkt retail dealers have the tools and experience for an optimized and safe installation, we always recommend
they do the final vehicle integration. But, should you choose to install these products yourself, please take the time to
read this manual completely and abide by all precautions.
AMPLIFIER BENEFITS & FEATURES
“THERMAL-THROTTLE” TEMPERATURE PROTECTION
Unlike “dragster” style amplifiers that put out lots of power for a few
minutes, our Velocity series amps are engineered for full throttle,
everyday driving. With our incredible Blaupunkt “Thermal Throttle”, our
amps keep on playing without overheating, the common shut-down
mode for most amplifiers.
All amplifiers heat up some over time. Using our moving voltage rail
design, once warm, the rails pull back to prevent long term overheating
thus preventing full shut off or even possible damage, as most other
amps do. Once initiated this temporary system gain pullback lets you
know you are really pushing the system hard but it’s not letting you
down going into full shut down.
UNIQUE INSTALLATION FLEXIBILITY
Included in your amplifier kit is the very cool looking side rails and end
caps. The side rail system allows you to butt amps side-by-side
building a multi-channel monster of a system but with everything
trimming out beautifully. An added benefit of the side rails and caps is
the dressing down and hiding of all cables preventing any kind of
snagged wires.

REMOTE GAIN CONTROL
You will find a very nice remote gain control for the amplifier. This gain control works only in the subwoofer mode
(low-pass) providing about 20dB of gain range to dial in accurate bass levels or to simply pound out the tunes if
desired.
NOISE ISOLATION MODE CONTROL
Inside the amplifier are isolation circuits to help prevent the intrusion of noise into the audio path. These circuits are
turned on or off via the small switches visible through the bottom plate. Noise currents may enter the system via
signal cables should there be small ground voltage differences. These are sometimes heard as a varying pitch with
engine speed (alternator whine). The vehicle may also have a poor antenna ground, or overly sensitive AM radio
tuner front end, which can result in low level back ground tones (birdies) in some parts of the AM radio band
(550kHz-1710kHz).
Should either of these conditions occur, use a small screwdriver to slide the switch to the “ON” position and they
should be eliminated. If no problems are detected, leave in the “OFF” position for maximum audio system
performance.

SAFETY CONCERNS
INSTALLATION WARNINGS!
Before disassembling your beautiful new car you need some basic installation knowledge and skill with
common hand and power tools. Following such basic installation tips and warnings will prevent possible
damage to the vehicle and also prevent possible fires.
• AGAIN...READ THE MANUAL! There is a lot of helpful information in this manual that
will save time and prevent problems later.
• COVER THE VEHICLE WORK AREAS - Use fender covers or blankets to protect the
work areas from scratches or dings.
• DISCONNECT THE (-) LEAD ON THE BATTERY - No sparks or fires please!
• “REVIEW” THE INSTALLATION - Before using any tools or moving vehicle
components, take five minutes to review the installation intentions (e.g., verify that an
amplifier will fit in an area of a car before tearing out all the interior).
• “REVIEW” THE VEHICLE - Before drilling any holes or cutting into any surfaces, make
sure there are no fuel or hydraulic lines behind the surfaces. Also make sure there are
no wires routed directly behind or near the desired mounting area (remember...screws
can often extend 1-2 inches behind the mounting surface).
• ENSURE PROPER FIT - Before cutting or drilling, make sure the amplifier will physically
fit in its desired location. Check for clearance around rear deck torsion bars or other
structural elements.
• EVERY CAR IS ASSEMBLED DIFFERENT - Every auto manufacturer uses different
assembly techniques. Take care in removing/modifying all trim panels and mounting
surfaces since they often use unique screws or snap fasteners that are difficult to replace if they are lost or
broken.
• BE CAREFUL WITH CABLE ROUTING - When routing audio cables, make sure RCA and speaker wires are
routed away from high current power lines for audio amplifiers and vehicle systems lines when possible.
This will help prevent noises from creeping into the audio system, plus prevent potential damage to the
vehicle wiring itself.
• BE CAREFUL WITH ALL CONNECTIONS - When making connections, make sure each connection is clean
and properly secured. Observe all polarity markings carefully to ensure proper end performance.
• CAUTION - FUEL TANKS AND FUEL LINES ARE NOW LOCATED DIRECTLY BENEATH THE REAR DECK
IN MANY CARS - CHECK FOR ADEQUATE CLEARANCE BEFORE EVEN CONSIDERING SUCH A
MOUNTING LOCATION!

We always recommend you have your Blaupunkt amplifiers professionally installed
but the installation process is often so easy that the average consumer can
achieve success with little trouble. Regardless of the person installing, you should
be sure to review the following points before proceeding with the installation:
• READ THE MANUAL! Understanding the product and installation limitations
before lifting a screwdriver.
• WEAR SAFETY GLASSES AT ALL TIMES - Flying debris are always dangerous.
• PROTECT THE VEHICLE - Always disconnect the negative battery cable before
starting any kind of installation work. This prevents a possible high current
electrical short (potential fires).
• HEAT - Keep all audio components away from nearby hot vehicle components that heat up over time such
as hoses, high current wires, and braking system components.
• GIVE YOURSELF LOTS OF TIME - Rushing to complete an installation nearly always ends up with
problems.
• DO NOT LISTEN AT HIGH SOUND LEVELS FOR A PROLONGED TIME - these amplifiers, used with high
efficiency speakers from ANY manufacturer, have the potential to cause permanent hearing loss after
listening at maximum volume levels for several hours.
SYSTEM PLANNING
Before wiring up an audio system that may not achieve the
sound quality you want, be sure to choose a system
concept that fits your listening requirements. Basic
systems, a receiver with internal 4x20 watts and 4 coax
speakers, are adequate for many listeners. But, when you
want to really “feel” the music, you will need some kind of
subwoofer amplifier/speaker combination. Although many
people might jump into an “add-on” amplifier to power to
rear coaxial speakers, a better choice is usually a subwoofer
amp/speaker system that supplements the existing 4
speaker system as shown in the adjacent drawing. Such a
system provides a surprising improvement in sound quality
due to the usually dramatic increase in bass response.

Supplementary subwoofer system
The next dramatic step up in performance is with a “multichannel” system that offers more dynamic range in the mids
and highs due to higher power plus more bass response
due to multiple woofers and/or more power. But, with such
a system, the stereo image and overall listening experience
usually becomes much more life-like due to better tonal
quality midrange/tweeter speakers and usually better
placement.

Sat Amplifier
(4x100 W)
To build such a system though, complexity goes up due to
the addition of passive or active crossovers which take time
to install and may inject noise into the system due to
potential noise signal pick up. The results though of such a
system can be dramatically pleasing.

INSTALLATION TOOLS
For most installations, simple hand tools are adequate to install an aftermarket amplifier. Depending upon the
mounting locations used, you will need power tools for drilling and cutting plastics and metal. A good starting list is
summarized below:
• Tape measure and ruler
• Marking pen and starting punch
• Phillips and flat blade screwdrivers (small and medium sizes)
• Nylon wire bundle ties
• Pliers: standard vice-grip and needle nose styles
• Light-duty trim pry-bar for removing door trim
• Cutting shears or nibbling tool for cutting thin and medium gauger metal
• Wire cutters, wire strippers, electrical tape, crimping pliers and appropriate crimp-on
terminals
• Power drill with appropriate sized drill bits

VEHICLE WIRING
POWER WIRING
Most vehicles built since 1990 have adequate current
capability for your amplifier. Except for systems above
about 500 W rms, the factory charging system and
battery should easily support it if properly installed.
Proper wire size must be chosen to ensure adequate
current delivery to the amp. Wire size (gauge) of the
cables need to increase in size for higher power
systems. (Wire sizes larger than those noted are usually
a waste of time and money since they offer Little or no
performance improvements.)

Wire diameter must increase (decreased wire gauge number) for higher power systems. For long wire runs the
wire diameter must also increase. The wire sizes noted allow for a maximum 0.5 volts DC drop over the give
wire run which results in Sound Pressure Level drops inaudible to the average listener.
SPEAKER WIRING
As with power wire, speaker wire size (gauge) changes
with the power required and the length of the wire run.
The speaker wire chart shows the minimum
recommended wire size for a single audio output
channel driving a loudspeaker at a given distance with a
maximum power loss of 0.5 dB, the threshold of
audibility. (Wire sizes larger than those noted are usually
a waste of time and money since they offer little or no
performance improvements.)

FINAL VEHICLE WIRING
Current requirements for an upgraded audio system dictate a
dedicated power line be run from the amplifier directly to the
battery of the vehicle. This line should NOT be run to the fuse
panel of the vehicle but directly to the battery. DO NOT run to the
alternator either. There MUST be a fuse installed at the battery
with adequate amperage as shown in the chart above.
As for the final signal wiring, be sure to route the audio cables
down the side of the car opposite the power lines to avoid noise
pick up from the lines. Also, try to route all audio cables away
from noise sources such as engine computers and ABS brake
computers.

GAIN CONTROL
REMOTE GAIN CONTROL JACK - For connecting the remote gain control (included). This allows you to adjust the
gain while seated in the vehicle with the system operating.
LOW PASS CROSSOVER CONTROL - This control sets the upper frequency limit of the amplifier. For most
subwoofers a value just below 100 Hz is usually best.
SLOPE SWITCH - This allows you to switch between 12 dB and 24 dB per octave roll-off.
GAIN CONTROL - The gain control allows for a range of 0.3 - 8 Volts input. This means that if the setting is 0.3V, it
only takes 0.3V to drive the amp to full output. (Such a low setting allows for the amp to be easily overdriven, and
more susceptible to noise so a mid-position is highly recommended for most radios.)
LINE LEVEL INPUTS & OUTPUTS - The most commonly used inputs and outputs in the aftermarket are RCA type
line level. These can handle up to about 6 Volts rms without overdriving the amp. Such high voltages are rarely
found from car audio head units, so this is a very comfortable value. But should you need to drive the amp directly
from speaker level leads, use the supplied “High Level Adapter” to connect to the amp.

CONNECTIONS &
TRIGGER LINE
SPEAKER OUTPUTS - The amplifier is connected to appropriate
impedance speakers via these leads. It is IMPERATIVE that these leads
NOT be connected or touch the vehicle chassis in any way or the amplifier
will be damaged. The (+) and (-) leads of the amp are in no way interconnected to one another. Also, NONE of the leads can touch each other,
touch ground, or touch +12V or damage may occur to the amp or vehicle.
FUSES - These fuses are only for catastrophic situations should the
amplifier begin to self-destruct or incur installation situations where gross
amounts of current are being required from the amp beyond its design
limits. Although another fuse should be installed inline with the high power
line at the battery, these amplifier mounted fuses MUST remain in the
circuit to protect the amplifier.
POWER CONNECTIONS & TRIGGER LINE
+12v - A high current line run direct from the batter is highly
recommended to insure adequate current and voltage. This line MUST
be run through a dedicated fuse of some kind and this fuse should be
located immediately next to the power source. This in-line fuse is used
to protect the vehicle should a short to chassis occur.

TRIGGER - This line tells the amp to turn on and is remotely switched
from the radio which normally provides an amp “trigger” output. This
line is required to go “high” (+12V) to turn on the amp. If this line is not
available, use the power antenna line trigger which is normally available
in most radios.
GROUND - This is the high current ground connection to the chassis of
the car. It should be fastened to a clean ground connection in the
vehicle, capable of handling high current loads. This wire should be no
longer than 3 feet (1 meter).

Possibly as popular as the single woofer is a pair of

a load of 4 ohms on the amp which is fine. If each woofer is 4 ohms, this places a load of 2 ohms total which
is possible for short periods but not recommended due to overheating of the amp and possible damage if used

achieve a 4 ohm load to the amp which just works great! This can be a real pounder system if wired up right
and places only moderate loads on the amp. Highly recommended!

TROUBLE-SHOOTING GUIDE
Below is a basic trouble-shooting guide to assist in seeking out and correcting a problem that may occur in the
installation process. Although lengthy, this chart cannot address every single problem possible but mainly the ones
most common.
SYMPTOM
PROBABLE CAUSE OR CORRECTION
No power (power light not on)
•
•
•
•
•
Power but no sound (power light is on)
• Check all input cable lines for connection.
• Disconnect speakers from amp, test speaker lines with digital voltmeter to verify >2 ohms per
channel (non-bridged mode).
No sound from one channel or entire side
• Check radio’s balance and fader control positions - verify they are at center.
• Check speaker connections at amp and speaker.
• Check input leads for connection to amp.
Very low sound level
• Verify radio balance and fader controls are at center positions.
• Check amplifier’s input gain control setting - adjust for higher output levels if necessary (gain
settings closer to 0.3 volts).
• Receiver may have very low output voltage levels - a step up “line driver” may have to be
used.
Power amplifier turns on and off repeatedly
(motor-boating sound)
• Make sure power connections at batter are tight.
• Verify battery voltage is >11.5 volts DC (12.5-15V engine on) at amplifier with engine off.
• Check all radio and amplifier ground connections.
Amplifier turns off during loud or distorted
passages
•
•
•
•
Amplifier performs fine but gets very hot to
the touch
• Input gain control too high - lower accordingly (closer to 4.0 volt setting).
• Verify speaker loads >2 ohms on all channels (non-bridged mode).
• Verify the mounting location allows for free air movement around the amp. Preferably, the amp
should be mounted with fins up and down so rising heat moves quickly away from amp.
Amplifier turn-on/turn-off pops or noises
• “turn on race” - disconnect trigger from radio and turn on/off via a wire jumper to power
terminal. If noise goes away, the radio is turning on/off too slowly. This is radio problem and
can only be corrected with outboard turn-on delay relay system.
• Radio “thump” - disconnect the RCA input lines to the amp and turn on/off via radio trigger. If
noise goes away without RCA lines connected, the radio is sending pops out through RCA
lines. This is a radio problem and can only be corrected with outboard turn-on delay relay
system.
Cracking noises on AM/FM radio but not on
tape or cd.
• Ensure the problem is “radiated noise” by placing a portable FM radio near the car engine. If
noise is picked up, then it is a vehicle problem and not your system. Research to isolate the
source and properly shield or bypass.
• Are spark plugs and wires > 3 years old? These can often radiate substantial noise when old.
• Verify the engine block has a good ground connection to chassis ground.
• Verify the engine compartment hood is grounded to vehicle chassis via a braided grounding
strap.
Whining noise, engine running, varies in pitch
or loudness with engine speed, AND varies
with radio volume control setting (this is
generally a RADIO installation problem)
• Verify all power and ground connections are clean at radio.
• Re-route radio power and ground so they are sourced from same connections back at
amplifier (this is called a “common” ground).
• Check all ground connections to ensure clean surfaces that have all paint removed and also
not oxidation buildup over time.
• Verify there is some kind of power filtering choke assembly at back of radio. If not, install one.
Whining noise, engine running, varies in pitch
or loudness with engine speed, BUT, DOES
NOT vary with radio volume control setting
(this is generally an amplifier installation
problem)
• Check battery ground connections at chassis are clean and tight, scraped free of oxidation,
paint, and grease.
• Re-route radio power and ground so they are sourced from same connections back at
amplifier (this is called a “common” ground).
• Bypass all equipment between radio and amp (e.g., equalizers) directly connecting radio. If
noise goes away, signal processor has problem.
• Check for signal level “ground loops” - disconnect the outer shield of the RCA cable at one
end of the cable (e.g., radio end). If noise goes away, modify cables accordingly. There are
voltage differences at the ground connections of the components and these are NOT
correctable any other way than such shield cutting or an outboard “ground loop isolator”
which is a small transformer.
Check connections to amps +12 volt, ground, and remote lines.
Use voltmeter to verify voltages are at terminals of amp.
Check main power connection at battery.
Check fuse in power line at battery.
Disconnect all speakers but not power lines - if unit then turns on, a speaker short or speaker
line touching vehicle chassis is likely.
Input stage being over-driven - lower input gain (closer to 4 volt setting).
Verify battery voltage is >11.5 volts DC at amplifier with engine off.
Check all radio and amplifier ground connections.
Verify speaker loads >2 ohms on all channels (non-bridged mode).
