XAM600.1/ XAM400.2/XAM500.4 /XAM500.4BT AMPLIFIER APPLICATIONS
General:
At this point you are ready to get more specific on the settings for your amplifier.
Subsonic:
This setting acts as a low frequency cut off for your system bass reproduction. The point that you set it at cuts off any frequencies from
reproduction beyond this point. The 12 o’clock position is a great starting point. EXAMPLE: If you adjust the Subsonic to 25Hz, the amplifier
will not play frequencies below 25Hz but will play frequencies from 25Hz to the chosen Low Pass frequency.
Bass EQ:
This setting is a fixed bass boost at 45Hz that is variable from 0-12dB. This feature provides impact to your bass, but if not adjusted
correctly, it can be over used and cause damage to your subwoofers and amplifiers. It is best to slowly turn this setting clockwise until the
desired punch is felt, it is not recommended to exceed the 12 o’clock position unless listening at a low volume or a low recording quality as
this can result in high distortion and possibly clipping.
Low Pass:
The Low pass control acts as a ceiling and doesn’t allow frequencies to the right of the desired setting to be reproduced. The 12 o’clock
position is a great starting point. EXAMPLE: If you adjust the Low Pass to 80Hz, the amplifier will not play frequencies above 80Hz but will
play frequencies from 80Hz to the chosen Subsonic frequency.
Phase:
The phase switch allows you to change the phase of your subwoofer so that it best blends with your component speakers. While listening
to a song with strong bass material set the switch to the position that gives the best blending of the subwoofers and component speakers.
High Pass:
When in Hi Pass operation this setting acts as a low frequency cut off your system reproduction. The point that you set it at cuts off any
frequencies from reproduction beyond this point.The 12 o’clock position is a great starting point. EXAMPLE: If you adjust the High Pass
to 100Hz ,the amplifier will not play frequencies below 100Hz but will play frequencies from 100Hz to the chosen Low Pass frequency.
Level (GAIN) Control Setup:
Ensure that the level is turned completely to the left prior to turning the system on. Next you should insert a CD or cassette that you are
familiar with to use as a reference, and turn the head unit volume control to about 80% of its full setting. The system sound level will of
course be very low, and the following procedures will help you to match the amplifier input sensitivities properly to the head unit output
signal level. It is important to match the amplifier LEVEL input sensitivity to the Radio/CD output sensitivity. This can be located in the
Radio/CD manual. If the Radio/CD output sensitivity is 2 volts, then adjust the amplifier LEVEL input to 2 volts.
If you are not sure what the Radio output sensitivity is, follow these general guide lines:
Turn the level control up slowly, till you hear distortion, then back off a few degrees on the control, If at any point your amplifier goes into
protection. you will need to turn the Level to the left a bit and then try again. If you reach a point where the output does not increase, stop
turning the Level control to the right as the amplifier/subwoofer combo has reached its max output on this application.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Before removing your amplifier, refer to the list below and follow the suggested procedures. Always test the speakers and their wires first.
AMPLIFIER WILL NOT POWER UP.
Check
Check
Check
Check
for good ground connection.
that remote DC terminal has at least 13.8v DC.
that there is battery power on the + terminal.
all fuses.
Check that protection LED is not lit,If it is lit,shut off amplifier briefly and then repower it.
HIGH HISS OR ENGINE NOISE (ALTERNATOR WHINE) IN SPEAKERS.
Disconnect all RCA inputs to the amplifier(s)-if hiss/noise disappears, then plug in the component driving the amplifier and unplug its
inputs. If hiss/noise disappears, go on until the faulty/noisy component is found.
It is best to set the amplifier`s input level as insensitive as possible. The best subjective S/N ratio is obtainable this way. Try to drive as
high a signal level from the head unit as possible.
PROTECTION LED COMES ON WHEN THE AMPLIFIER IS POWERED UP.
Check for shorts on speaker leads.
Check that the volume control on the head unit is turned down low.
Remove speaker leads, and reset the amplifier. If the Protection LED still comes on ,then the amplifier is faulty.
AMPLIFIER(S) GETS VERY HOT:
Check that the minimum speaker impedance for that model is correct.
Check for speaker shorts.
Check that there is good airflow around the amplifier. In some applications, an external cooling fan may be required.
DISTORTED SOUND
Check that the Level control(S) is set to match the signal level of the head unit.
Check that all crossover frequencies have been properly set.
Check for shorts on the speaker leads.
HIGH SQUEAL NOISE FROM SPEAKERS.
This is always caused by a poorly-grounded RCA patch cord.
