µ-Dimension mDB-5000.1D Comp Owner's Manual | Manualzz

Thanks you for purchasing u-DIMENSION amplifiers for your car audio systems.

u-DIMENSION has introduced new digital amplifier series line of the products

These products are single purpose designs with the sole goal of being the best tool for the job.No cutbacks and No wimps.

The Digital-series lines of amplifiers feature two distinct approaches .

Digital-series amplifiers are amp designed for the highest possible efficiency and highest total output with linkable features.

The Digital-series make good amounts of power from the stock electrical systems with highly efficient circuitry with 4 power transformers.

They are all designed to make the most sound quality and performance with sufficient values and high grade of the components.

The high efficiency comes from paying close attention to every stage through the amplifiers' circuit. High speed controller chipsets, efficient power devices,precise thermal management and best engineerings are the key to new Digital-series design with long expriences.

Followings are very important description and installation process

We highly recommend all for reading manual carefully and follow the steps of the process.

4. INSTALLATION

In case you install Digital-series by yourself, please read owner's manual and follow your installation steps very carefully. Before you start your installation, please take all steps into consideration. or, you can have u-DIMENSION authorized distritutors to check installation and set your car audio systems

4-1. MOUNTING PREPARATION

Disconnect the negative ( ) battery cable before mounting Digital-series amplifiers or making any connections. Check the battery and alternator ground ( ) connections.

Make sure they are properly connected and Free of corrosion

Before selecting a mounting location for amplifier, Pls take some concerns into consideration with cooling efficiency and safety.

4-2. MOUNTING PREPARATION

Digital-series amplifiers use heavy-duty and good heat radiation heatsink design for avoiding excessive heat from amplifier circuitry. But for better heat radiation performance,

It is good to find the mounting location where you can install Digital-series Amplifiers vertically with the heatsink fins and better air flow around Digital-series amplifiers.

For the safety, you have to find dry and well ventilated location and make sure any cables and car equipment are not interfaced with mounting location.

Be sure the mounting location and drilling of pilot cables for mounting will not present a hazard to any cables, control cables, fuel lines, Fuel tanks,hydraulic lines or other vehicle systems or components.

4-3. +12V, GND, REM CONNECTION

Before mounting Digital-series amplifiers, disconnect the negative ( ) wire from battery to protect any accidentIal damage to amplifier and audio system.

Digital-series are designed to use 0 gauge power and Ground connection.

Connect the power cables to power terminal labeled as + 12V

Digital-series are not equipped with Fuses so you have to install the external fuses on the power cable for Digital-series.

Connect one end of fuse holder to the power cable and the other end of fuse holder to positive battery within 20 cm of the same cable.

This fuse location will protect the system and the vehicle against the possibility of a short circuit in the power cable.

Be sure to use fuses and fuse holder adequate for the application

GND ( GROUND CONNECTION )

Locate a secure grounding connection as close to amplifier as possible.

Make sure the location is clean and provides a direct electrical connection to the frame of the vehicle. Connect one end of a short piece of the same size cable as the power cable to the grounding point.

Run the one end of the cable to the grounding point.

Run the other end of the cable to the mounting location

Connect the ground cable to the screw terminal labeled as GND.

REM ( REMOTE CONNECTION )

Run a remote turn on cable from the switched + 12V source.

You will be using to turn on the system components.

This may be a toggle switch, a relay, or your source unit's remote trigger cables, or power antenna trigger cable.

Connect the remote turn on cable to the power terminal labeled as REM.

4-4. SPEAKER CONNECTION

Run 12 AWG speaker connecting cables from your speakers to Digital-series amplifiers' mounting location.

Keep speaker cables away from power cables and Digital-series amplifier's input cables.

Use grommets anywhere the cables have to pass through the holes in the metal frame or sheet metal.

Connect to the speakers according to the type of the terminals on each speaker.

Strip 3/8" of insulation from the end of each cable and twist the cables strands together tightly.

Make sure there insulation from the end of each cable and twist the cables together tightly.

Make sure there are no stray strands that might touch other cables or terminals and cause a short circuit.

Crimp spade lugs over the cable ends or tin the ends with solder to provide a secure termination.

Connect the cable ends to Digital-series amplifiers as speaker system diagram.

5. DAISY CHAIN CONNECTION

Daisy chain connection makes 2pcs of Digital-series amplifiers linkable to 2 ohm and doubles the power of single Digital-series amplifier's 1 ohm power.

Single unit of all Digital-series amplifier's minimum working impedance is 1 ohm.

Daisy chain connection of 2 pcs of Digital-series amplifier's minimum working impedance is

2 ohm. Please read the following connection steps and diagram carefully to make the correct connection.

5-1. FUNCTIONAL SIDE CONNECTION.

MASTER AMPLIFIER : Digital-series amplifier connected from headunit is called as master amplifier.

SLAVE AMPLIFIER : Digital-series amplifier connected to master amplifier is called as slave amplifier

6. TROUBLE SHOOTING TIPS

NO SOUND ( NO OUTPUT )

@ Pls check all connections, cables' rounting, short, voltage at Digital-series amplifiers and

headunit

@ Pls check fuses ,If it is blown, pls replace with new one.

@ Pls check whether speakers work well, you can test speakers by connecting to another

amplifier

PROTECTION

@ Pls check overload, overheat ( thermal ), short and voltage. DC offset

@ Minimum working impedance is 1 ohm for single Digital-series amplifiers and 2 ohm for

linked operation.

@ If Digital-series amplifiers are shut down due to overheat, they will be on some minutes later.

pls make better airflow and no obstruction around Digital-series for thermal protection

@ Digital-series have Low and high voltage protection. Working Voltage is 9V~16V for

μ

DB-2500.1D Comp and 9V ~ 18V for

μ

DB-5000.1D Comp .

so Voltage is lower than 8.5V or higher than 16V,

μ

DB-2500.1D Comp will be protected.

Voltage is lower than 8.5V or higher than 18V,

μ

DB-5000.1D Comp will be protected

@ When over 4V DC comes into Digital-series amplifiers, then, they will be DC protected.

Check whether Digital-series amplifiers work after removing RCA-Input

If Digital-series amplifiers work, then check DC by checking RCA-input L and R

When DC is over 4V at input, try by replacing headunit or source unit

DISTORTION

@ Readjust input level and check the speaker quality at another amplifier

Replace poor quality speakers with good quality ones

POOR BASS RESPONSE

@ Pls check speaker cables and reverse polarity of one channel

BUZZING SOUND

@ Check Digital-series amplifiers and headunit ground contact.

@ Check Rca Jack and repalce with new one or rerout Rca Jack.

WHINING NOISE

@ Engine noise is caused by poor grounding of Digital-series amplifiers, headunit, other

components, battery or alternator, so pls check all grounding connection.
