INPUT SECTION

The input section of the amplifier consists of separate phase switches that set output configuration, separate left and right gain controls and RCA inputs. The input section makes it easy to adapt this amplifier to most system configurations

PHASE SWITCHES

The XTREME amplifier has separate left and right phase control switches. There are six different setting combinations. Setting 1 is the factory configuration. Both left and right channels are in Phase. Both left and right gain controls are active.

Setting 2 inverts the output of the right channel. The right channel is 180° out of phase from the left channel. Both left and right gain controls are active. This configuration is useful for Tri-mode operation. Additionally, inverting one channel of satellite speakers can focus imaging.

Setting 3 inverts the output of the left channel. The left channel is 180° out of phase from the right channel. Both left and right gain controls are active. This configuration is useful for Tri-mode operation. Inverting one channel of satellite speakers can focus imaging.

page 32

INPUT GAIN

Setting 4 inverts the output of both the left and right channels. Both left and right gain controls are active. This configuration is useful for inverting one set of speakers like rear speakers in front/rear system to improve staging in a vehicle.

Setting 5 inverts the output of the left channel. The left channel is 180° out of phase from the right channel. Only the right gain control is active. This is the “MONO

BRIDGED” output configuration. Right Phase control determines the phase of the output. When the Right Phase control is in the 0° position, the bridged output is in phase with the rest of the system.

Setting 6 inverts the output of the bridged output . The mono bridged input is 180° out of phase from the rest of the system. Only the right gain control is active. This is the “MONO BRIDGED” output configuration. Right Phase control determines the phase of the output. When the Right Phase control is in the 180° position, the bridged output is out of phase with the rest of the system.

XTREME amplifiers have separate left and right level adjustments. The input sensitivity of these adjustments range from 200mV up to 5Vrms to easily integrate with any source unit both after market and OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) Refer to the Testing the System and the Adjusting the Sound of the System for detailed instructions on setting up the level controls.

page 33

INTERNAL CROSSOVER SECTION

The crossover section of the XTREME amplifier is continuously variable and extremely flexible. There are eight different crossover configurations possible allowing high-pass, low-pass and band-pass configurations. New for ORION amplifiers is the INTELLi Q feature on the high-pass crossover. This circuit is designed to optimize the performance of ORION subwoofers in all types of enclosures.

When using ORION loudspeakers, minor deviations from the recommended frequency ranges can provide superior results depending on your speaker locations and your vehicle acoustics. Setting crossover frequencies higher than recommended will not cause damage and may provide superior sonic results depending on your system’s performance goals. Refer to your loudspeaker owner’s manual for assistance in choosing the proper crossover frequencies for your system.

WARNING!!!

DO NOT set crossover frequencies lower than the speakers recommended operating range. This can cause driver failure that is not covered by manufacturer’s warranty.

LOW-PASS CROSSOVER

When the push button is in the

“out” position, the low-pass crossover is bypassed.

When the push button is in the

“in” position, the low-pass crossover is active.

The low-pass crossover is continuously variable from 45 Hz to 5 kHz.

page 34

FINE TUNING THE LOW-PASS CROSSOVER

The crossover section is marked at four frequency points for ease of system adjustment. These points are 45 Hz, 175 Hz ,

600 Hz and 5,000 Hz. Specific crossover points can be to be chosen based on the recommended operational bandwidth of your speakers.

There are three small dots on the frequency range dial.

These dots represent commonly used ORION crossover frequencies. These crossover frequencies are 85 Hz, 2,500 Hz and 3,500 Hz respectively.

page 35

HIGH-PASS CROSSOVER

When both push buttons are in the “out” position, the high-pass crossover is bypassed.

MID AND TWEETERS

HIGH-PASS WOOFERS

When both push buttons are in the “in” position, the high-pass crossover is active in the “HIGH” frequency range. The high-pass crossover is continuously variable from

100 Hz to 10 kHz. This setting is used for crossing over midrange and tweeter speakers.

Set the INTELLi Q level to “0 dB.” NOTE: When the high-pass crossover is in the

“HIGH” frequency range, the frequency indicators represent 1/10 of the crossover frequency. For example, 35Hz = 350Hz.

WARNING!!!

When using the crossover in the “HIGH” range, it is not recommended to use the INTELLi Q as it may potentially damage your midrange or tweeter speakers.

When only the push button to activate the high-pass crossover is in the “in” position, the high-pass crossover is active in the “LOW” frequency range. The high-pass crossover is continuously variable from 10 Hz to 1 kHz. The high-pass crossover is now optimized for use as a subsonic filter for subwoofers. Additionally, boost can be added at the high-pass crossover frequency for improved bass output while still protecting the woofer from excessive excursion. The INTELLi Q adjustment allows up to 10 dB of boost at the crossover frequency. Care must be taken when setting the INTELLi Q at or near the maximum boost.

page 36

FINE TUNING THE HIGH-PASS CROSSOVER “HIGH RANGE”

The crossover section is marked at four frequency points for ease of system adjustment. These points are 10 Hz, 35 Hz , 120

Hz and 1 kHz. Specific crossover points can be to be chosen based on the recommended operational bandwidth of your speakers.

Note: When the high-pass crossover is set in the “HIGH” frequency range, the corner frequencies are 100 Hz, 350 Hz,

1.2 kHz and 10 kHz respectively.

Incorporated in the high-pass crossover, INTELLi Q maximizes the performance of a subwoofer. The high-pass subsonic filter removes unwanted bass output from the woofer, increasing the output of a subwoofer by as much as 3 dB due to the increased mechanical power handling. Depending on the enclosure, using INTELLi

Q can increase the low frequency response by an additional 10dB!!! The boost level is identified by the corner markings. Acceptable boost levels are determined by the type of enclosure used and the woofer’s excursion capability. Listed below are recommended boost levels for different enclosure designs.

“Q” BOOST FILTER RESPONSE

On the left is a frequency response of the high-pass filter set to 30 Hz.

On the right frequency response of the high-pass filter set to 20Hz.

INTELLi Q levels of 0dB, 3dB, 6dB and 10dB are displayed respectively.

INFINITE BAFFLE EXAMPLE HIGH-PASS SET @ 30Hz

By removing low frequency signal which the woofer cannot produce, the woofer can play its capable range louder The first example is an infinite baffle situation. The left Graph displays the frequency response of a 12 inch woofer in an infinite baffle application without the high-pass filter, with the filter and with the filter and the INTELLi Q set to +3dB. As you can see with +3dB of boost and the high-pass filter set to

30Hz, the woofer has more output down to 25Hz and less overall excursion when compared to the non-high-pass response. Maximum physical excursion capability of the woofer is 15mm.

SEALED EXAMPLE HIGH-PASS SET @ 20Hz

This sealed example is the same 12 inch woofer in the recommended sealed enclosure. Up to 6 dB of boost is capable at 20 Hz was used. With +6dB of boost, the woofer has more output down to 15 Hz.

page 40

SEALED EXAMPLE HIGH-PASS SET @ 30Hz

In this example, the frequency has been increased to 30 Hz. Up to 6 dB of boost is capable at this frequency.

With +6dB of boost, the woofer has more output down to 23 Hz.

Overall usable output is increased.

VENTED EXAMPLE HIGH-PASS SET @ 30Hz

Vented enclosure benefit most from the INTELLi Q. Up to 10 dB of boost is capable at the box tuning frequency of 30 Hz. With +10dB of boost, the woofer has more output down to 22 Hz. The excursion below the tuning frequency has been greatly reduced.

AUXILIARY OUTPUT SECTION

The auxiliary outputs offer ORION amplifiers easy unlimited system expansion .

Routing signal from a source unit, pre-amplifier or equalizer is a matter of routing

RCAs into the RCA Inputs and out the AUX outputs to the next XTREME or HCCA amplifier in the signal chain. When the switch is in the “COPY” position, the AUX

RCA is an identical copy of the RCA inputs. The signal passes through a buffer stage so that an infinite number of XTREME amplifiers can be daisy chained without signal loss or overloading of the source unit. This maximizes the amplifier output and minimizes the potential for system noise.

When the switch is in the “GAIN” position, the AUX RCAs are buffered through the gain stage of the amplifier. When the first amplifier in the signal chain is set this way, a remote gain controller can be installed in the amplifier and act as a “PRE-

AMP” controlling the overall level of the system. Following amplifiers can be configured in either the “COPY” or “MASTER” configuration for an infinite number of XTREME or HCCA amplifiers in the signal chain without signal loss or overloading of the source unit. This maximizes the amplifier output and minimizes the potential for system noise.

When the switch is in the “MASTER” position, the AUX RCA are buffered through the gain stage of the amplifier and filtered through the crossover section of the amplifier. When set this way, one amplifier’s gain and crossover setting can be sent to other amplifier down the signal chain. This can be useful for configuring multiple subwoofer amplifiers easily in a large SPL system. A Remote gain controller will also control the level of all the amplifiers following the amplifier configured in this master setting. An infinite number of XTREME or HCCA amplifiers in the signal chain without signal loss or overloading of the source unit. This maximizes the amplifier output and minimizes the potential for system noise.

page 42

Remote Gain Section

The remote gain port provides easy remote access to the internal gain structure of the XTREME power amplifier. The RGC-1 plugs into the amplifier via the 1/8” mini jack plug. The RGC-1 can be installed in the front of the vehicle to control the amplifier gain level. The RGC-1 can be used as a bass level control when used on an amplifier dedicated to subwoofers

CHOOSING MOUNTING LOCATIONS

The location of your XTREME amplifier will depend on several important issues. Due to the low profile size of the XTREME amplifiers, there are many possible installation locations that will yield satisfactory amplifier performance. Always mount the amplifier in a place that protects the amplifier from the elements. In addition, mount the amplifier on a stable, flat mounting surface. As with any amplifier, there are several possible mounting locations and configurations that can be optimal. We will cover the most obvious of situations.

PASSENGER COMPARTMENT MOUNTING

If you are going to mount the amplifier in the passenger compartment, make sure you have adequate room for ventilation. The XTREME amplifiers have been designed to make possible under seat mounting. When mounting your amplifier under a seat or similar area, keep a minimum of 1” of clearance around the amplifier for adequate cooling.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT MOUNTING

Mounting the XTREME amplifier in the trunk provides excellent performance as long as you do not mount the amplifier upside down or restrict the airflow around the heatsink of the amplifier. For optimal results, mount the amplifier with the cooling fins in the vertical position. This type of mounting will yield the best cooling due to the convection effect of the amplifier chassis

ENGINE COMPARTMENT MOUNTING

Do not mount the XTREME amplifier in the engine compartment. The amplifier was not designed to endure the harsh environment of the exterior elements.

page 45

GENERAL PRECAUTIONS AND INSTALLATION TIPS

Caution: Be careful not to cut or drill into gas tanks, fuel lines, brake lines, hydraulic lines, vacuum lines, or electrical wiring when working on your vehicle.

Disconnect the vehicle’s ground wire at the battery before making or breaking connections to the audio system’s power supply terminals.

Do not use the XTREME Amplifier unmounted. Failing to securely mount the amplifier can result in damage or injury, particularly in the event of an accident. An unmounted amplifier acts like a heat-seeking missile in the event of a crash. Never mount a

XTREME Amplifier where it might get wet. Mount the XTREME amplifier so the wire connections will not be pulled. Route the wires where they will not be scraped, pinched or damaged in any fashion.

The +12V power supply wire must be fused as close as possible to the battery terminal, ideally within 18”. Use the recommended fuse size or circuit breaker listed in the POWER CONNECTIONS section of this manual.

If you need to replace the fuse plugged into the side of the XTREME amplifier, replace the fuse with the same size ATC type fuse that came with the amplifier. If you are not sure as to the correct value, refer to the POWER CONNECTIONS section of this manual for details. Using a higher current fuse may result in damage to the XTREME amplifier which is not covered under warranty.

NOTE: Make sure all the equipment in the system is turned off when making or breaking connections to the XTREME input RCAs or speakers terminals. Turn on the system and slowly turn up the volume control only after double checking all wire connections.

Power for systems with a single XTREME amplifier can be supplied by most any automotive electrical system. Systems with multiple amplifiers may require a higher capacity battery, alternator or the use of a storage capacitor. WE strongly recommend the use of both a WIRED! Transient Storage Capacitor and a MBR70 with an extra battery in larger stereo systems.

XTREME amplifiers generate a certain amount of heat as part of its normal operation. Be sure the area around the cooling fins is unobstructed to allow adequate air circulation. Remember, beach blankets, last weeks laundry, school books and homework papers located on top of the amplifier, does not improve air flow.

page 46

STEP BY STEP INSTALLATION

Step 1 Determine the location for the amplifier. Refer to the Mounting Locations section in this manual for detailed information.

Step 2 Decide on the system configuration for your amplifier. For system suggestions, refer to the System Planning section of this manual.

Step 3 Run all the wires from the amplifier location to the speakers, source unit and battery. Do not connect the battery at this time. Be sure to run RCAs, power and speaker wires away from factory electrical wires and system as they pose a great potential for induced system noise.

Step 4 Pre-drill amplifier mounting holes. Be sure to “think before you drill”. Gas tanks, fuel lines, and other obstructions have a nasty way of hiding themselves. For best results use a marking pen to mark the mounting holes and pre--drill these holes with a standard 1/8” drill bit.

Step 5 Mount the amplifier. Make sure the amplifier is mounted on a flat surface. If this is not possible, do not over tighten the screws such that the chassis of the amplifier is twisted or bent.

Step 6 Turn the vehicle’s key switch to the off position.

Step 7 Disconnect the vehicle’s battery ground terminal.

Step 8 Connect the RCA and speaker wires to the amplifier. Check the quality of your speakers and signal connections.

This will determine the ultimate performance of your ORION amplifier. Refer to the Installation quick reference section of this manual for correct wiring instructions.

Step 9 Connect power wires to the amplifier. At this time do not connect the fuse at the main battery.

Step 10 Reconnect the ground terminal to the battery.

Step 11 Set crossover and signal routing configurations. Refer to the signal routing switches and the internal crossover configuration sections of this manual for detailed instructions.

Step 12 Once satisfied that all connections and settings are correct, install fuse at location near the vehicle’s battery and proceed to the testing the system section of this manual.

WARNING!!!! Never exceed the recommended fuse size of this amplifier. Failure to do so will result in the void of your warranty.

page 47

TESTING THE SYSTEM

After you have completed the installation, you need to test the system. This will help ensure years of trouble free operation. Please refer to the listed steps below when testing the sound of your ORION XTREME system.

Step 1 Check all the wiring connections to be sure they are correct and secure.

Step 2 Turn the signal source volume control down all the way. Set any tone controls to their flat or defeated positions.

This includes the loudness control.

Step 3 Turn the level controls of the amplifier to their minimum positions.

Step 4 Turn the source unit on. Check to see if the remote power LED located on the connection side of the amplifier is on.

If not, please refer to the power connections section and the trouble shooting section of this manual for instructions.

Step 5 If using a aftermarket source unit, turn the level controls of the amplifier about one quarter of a turn. Slowly in crease the volume level of the source unit to so that you can hear the output of the system. If no sound is heard or if the output is distorted, turn the system off immediately. Refer to the power connections section and the trouble shooting section of this manual to solve your installation problems

Step 6 Check to make sure the output for each channel is correct. If the active crossovers are used, check to make sure that each output is correct from the amplifier. When using active crossovers on midrange and tweeters, do not use crossover frequencies lower than recommended. If the system is not configured properly, refer to the internal crossover section of this manual and take corrective action.

Step 7 If the output is clear and undistorted, continue to the adjusting the sound of the system section of this manual.

ADJUSTING THE SOUND OF THE SYSTEM

Once you have checked the system’s operation, adjust the sound of the system. Adjusting the sound of the system is accomplished by setting the level controls and adjusting the internal crossovers.

Step 1 Turn the signal source volume control down all the way. Set any tone controls to their flat or defeated positions.

This includes the loudness control.

page 48

Step 2 Turn the level controls of the amplifier to their minimum positions.

Step 3 Choose music with high dynamic content that you like, that you are familiar with and will be most often used in the system.

Step 4 Turn the unit up to its highest undistorted output level. If you lack test equipment, this point occurs between 3/4 to full volume depending on the quality of your source unit. Listen for any audible distortion, if any distortion is au dible, reduce the volume of the source unit until you have an undistorted output. Leave the volume control at this position during your system tuning.

Step 5 While listening to your chosen dynamic music, turn up the level control corresponding to the midrange output until you hear slight distortion and turn back the level control slightly for an undistorted output. Depending on your system, the midrange and tweeter output may be on the same output channels.

Step 6 Turn up the level control corresponding to the tweeter output until you hear slight distortion and turn back the level control slightly for an undistorted output. Depending on your system the midrange and tweeter output may be on the same output channels.

Step 7 Fine tune the crossover setting and output level between the midrange and tweeters. Refer to the internal crossover configuration section of this manual for detailed instructions.

Step 8 Repeat Steps 5-7 for the rear speakers. If you do not have rear speakers continue to Step 10.

Step 9 Set levels between the midrange and tweeters for optimum front/rear balance.

Step 10 Turn up the level control corresponding to the woofer output until you hear slight distortion and turn back the level control slightly for an undistorted output.

Step 11 Fine tune the crossover setting and output levels between satellite speakers and the woofers. Refer to the internal crossover configuration section of this manual for detailed instructions. If using an RGC-1, adjust the level to match the output of the woofer to match the sonic requirements of the system.

Step 12 Enjoy your ass kickin’ ORION sound system.

AUTOSOUND 2000 TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS

QUICK CHECK FOR TROUBLESHOOTING CAR AUDIO SYSTEMS

Preface:

All audio systems exhibit noise; however, if the level of noise is low enough, and the signal level high enough, noise should not be a problem.

This means that it is very important that the signal level throughout the system be optimized BEFORE dealing with your noise problem. Using a scope (or a small portable amplifier) and Track 99 (1kHz at all high bits) of Autosound 2000’s CD #101, or tracks 24 through 29 of Autosound 200’s

CD #102, adjust the system so that when the maximum usable signal level of the deck is fed into the system, all the preamp level components clip at the same time. However, we recommend up to as much as a 3:1 voltage overlap with the power amplifiers; i.e. an amplifier with a 2 volt minimum sensitivity can be driven by up to 6 volts of signal.

Noise Overview:

Car audio electrical accessories are notorious for interfering with car audio systems. The interference commonly arises from three areas:

1) Power line noise (5%), which can be attenuated with in-line noise filters,

2) Inadequate power supply isolation (45%), which can be cured with transformer signal coupling, additional isolated power supplies, or changing out components, or

3) Inductive interference (45%) - Including loop area inductive noise picked up by the signal cables - which can be remedied rewiring components, rerouting signal cables, or using twisted cable or balanced transmission systems.

by relocating or

AUTOSOUND 2000 1-2-3 METHOD OF LOGICAL TROUBLESHOOTING

I.

MUTE THE AMP(S). Insert a muting plug (shorted male RCA connector) into each amplifier channel. Turn up the amp sensitivity. Start the car and turn on the headlights, air conditioning, brake lights, etc. Listen for noise in each speaker. Be very picky here!

A.

If still noisy, substitute a small test speaker with short leads for the speakers, crossovers, and speaker leads in the car. If still noisy, substitute an isolated power supply (120 VAC to 13.8 VDC bench supply or a small motorcycle battery) for the car’s alternator. If the amplifier is noisy with the test speaker, you have a BAD amp. Send it in. It really doesn’t matter if it is quiet or noisy while running on the isolated supply because you have a BAD amp. Send it in for repair and if it was quiet on the isolated supply, indicate so on the re pair tag.

page 52

B.

If your muted amp is quiet, you’ve just joined 99.5% of car audio. Amps are usually very clean and do NOT pick up unwanted noise!

Continue on to Step II.

II.

DECK TO AMP. Using a new set of signal cables, connect one channel from the output of the deck directly into one channel of your clean amp. Run the cables outside the car and as far away as possible from the metal of the car. (For noise purposes, consider a 2" thick cushion of electromagnetic energy emanating from every metal surface in the car.)

A.

If still noisy, congratulations, in all probability your equalizer, electronic crossover, DSP whatchamacallit, are just fine. This means that you can’t get your deck playing quiet with your amp, right? go to Step III.

B.

If all is quiet, congratulations, in all probability your deck and amplifier(s) are fine - you obviously have a problem with your equalizer, electronic crossover, DSP, etc. Skip on down to “Time for the Processors.”

III.

MOVE THE DECK. If you’re at this step, it is time to turn your system into an “amplified deck” by temporarily relocating the deck right

ON-TOP of the clean amplifier. Then using very, very short signal cables, connect the output of the deck into the input of the amp and test for noise. Play a zero bit track - silence - and make sure all is completely quiet.

A.

If still noisy, you’re in a heap of trouble, We suggest that you try another deck and give us a call so that we can put your name into the record books. It’s a bad car audio day for you.

B.

If the deck is quiet, then congratulations, you’re on your way to a successful installation. It is now time to slowly, methodically, reinstall the deck back into its final position. Test for noise each step of the way. If the noise returns, suspect the signal cables, forget shielding because it will have only a very, minimal effect within the audio band. We highly suggest using twisted pair cables or a balanced transmission system for cable induced noise.

TIME FOR PROCESSORS:

By the end of step III, you should have the deck playing quietly with the amp, with the quiet cables quietly routed. so it’s time to add the signal processors - one at a time - back into the system. Simply repeat steps II and III with the equalizer, then the electronic crossover, etc. However, before MOVING-THE-SIGNAL-PROCESSORS to the amplifier, we highly suggest that you supply power to the noisy processor from an isolated power supply rather than the car’s +12 volt DC and chassis ground. Make sure to also connect the turn-on lead to the isolated power supply. If the processor is now quiet , then it is highly probable that the component has inadequate isolation. Solutions include, changing components or permanently adding an external isolated power supply (Call Autosound 2000 at 209-465-3450 for info on isolated power supplies).

page 53

SUMMATION:

During the design stage of your vehicles, try to avoid using extra batteries and high output alternators. Extra batteries are nothing but loads as soon as the engine is started and high output alternators usually make more noise than stock alternators. Also, extra batteries installed in the trunk of a car will ALWAYS force extra ripple current to flow over the car.

Install Transient Storage as close to the power supply input of your amplifier as possible. The big caps will feed the switching power supplies of your amps and minimize the inductive losses in your power wiring. Plus, they will help your peak system response.

In problem cases, we highly recommend the use of twisted pair cable rather than coaxial cable for RCA leads. This practice will greatly minimize cable induced noise - especially in four channel amps!

Don’t forget that your system is only as good as its worst component. Do NOT-use components with inadequate power supply isolation or you will be asking for problems.

The best electrical ground on a car is the CHASSIS of the car. Do NOT-run ground leads up to the case of the alternator or the negative battery post. Keep ALL-ground leads as short as possible.

With properly isolated components, it does NOT matter where the component is grounded. With inadequately isolated components, it matters!

With poorly isolated components, different grounds can cause different noises.

The deck is the signal reference ground for the entire sound system. The deck usually has THREE connections to the car’s chassis: The black ground lead, the base of the antenna, and the metal-to-metal bond between the case of the deck and the chassis of the car. With three grounds, there is usually NO cause to worry about the ground of a deck.

Amplifiers are usually designed with adequate power supply isolation. This means that it should not matter where a deck is grounded. (Decks are grounded three times and amps float. This is car audio!)

The more components installed on a signal path, the more chances for noise to enter a system. The more electrical accessories on a car, the more noise will be produced by the alternator.

This information was compiled from more than 20 years of working in car audio.
