PRE- INSTALLATION

before making or breaking power connections in your system, disconnect the vehicle battery. Confirm that your source unit or other equipment is turned off while connecting the input jacks and speaker terminals.

use only proper car audio insulated 4ga. (or larger) power cable. The +12Volt power cable must be connected with a in-line fuse within 8in from the positive battery terminal.

if you need to replace the power fuse, replace it only with a fuse identical to that suggested by this manual. using a fuse of a different type or rating may result in damage to your audio system or your amplifier which is not covered by warranty.

use only car audio RCA cables, otherwise you may get sound distortion.

Keep these cables as short as possible. To avoid distortion from your car electronics, avoid installing the RCA cable close to any existing cables and other electric devices.

Take care when pulling wires through the vehicle to avoid any damage to the cable or it’s insulation. special care must be taken when installing the cable through metal openings as any crack or split in the cable insulation may cause an electrical short. don’t install cables too tight

The amplifier must be mounted securely at a solid, dry and low vibration surface in the trunk or passenger area. Fix the amplifier in an open air area to insure proper heat dissipation. Fix the amplifier in a place where the amplifier can access easily to set input controllers.

The ground cable should be connected directly with the chassis of your vehicle which should be metal to metal ground point connection.

1. Input - (item 6 & 7) be sure to lay the signal wire away from all power cables and vehicle computers. use high quality twisted pair interconnect cables to decrease the possibility of radiated noise entering the system.

The amplifiers can use either a low level line-in or high level (speaker level connection) signal from the source unit. if the source unit is not equipped with RCA outputs, The amplifier can be connect to the source unit to the high level (speaker connection) by following the high level setup below.

• LOW LEVEL: Using RCA Connections (Low level input): If the source unit has RCA outputs, simply attach a signal cable from the source unit to the amplifier’s RCA input. set the As selector switch on the (item 8) to the

“lOW” position.

Multi Channel Amplifiers

• HIGH LEVEL: The amplifier features current sensing technology with the A channel input. The ReM (item 4) wire connection is not required with the As selector (item 8) set in the high position.

High level in adapter wire setup

High level in

adapter

Use the high level output from the source unit and the HIGH LEVEL-IN

AdApTeR supplied with the amplifier. splice the source unit speaker wires to HIGH LEVEL-IN Adapter’s terminal block on the adapter. Be sure to connect the car audio’s system (+) wiring to the terminal block (+) and the

(-) car audio system to the (-) terminal block for each the LEFT (L) and RIGHT

(R). Plug the HIGH LEVEL-IN wire adapter into the amplifier. Set the AS selector switch (item 8) to the “Hi” position.

2. Power Terminals - please take proper measures during installation to protect the power wires as best you can. For example, when running the power cable from the vehicle’s battery through the firewall, use a firewall bushing for protection. Run the power wire through the interior of the vehicle, under the carpet, and to the amplifier. if this is something that you do not feel comfortable doing, please ask a professional to help you. be sure to lay the power wire away from all signal cables.

+12V (Item 3): This is the main power input for the amplifier and must be connected directly to the positive terminal of the car battery for the amplifier to operate properly. it is important that a main fuse is installed a maximum of 8” from the battery.

REM (Item 4): This connection turns the amplifier on and off. REM connection is used based upon the amplifier input source (high level or low level) and if the source unit has current sensing technology.

Low level input: Use the REM connection if the amplifier is connected to the low level inputs (RCA). Connect the ReM to the source unit’s remoteturn-on output. if the source unit does not have a remote-turn-on circuit the amplifier can be connected to +12V using a switch powered from the ignition switched circuit.

High level input: Determine if the vehicle’s source unit has current sensing technology. if the source unit does have current sensing technology then

ReM is not required to turn on the amplifier.

if the vehicle’s source unit does not have current sensing technology while using the high level source input then connect the ReM the same method as the low level input.

GND (Item 5): This is the ground connection for the amplifier and must be connected directly to the metal chassis of the vehicle for the amplifier to operate properly. A properly grounded amplifier can be run harder and longer than a poorly grounded amplifier. The ground on the amplifier should be as short as possible and be connected directly to the vehicle’s metal chassis. do not connect to factory bolts of Any kind. When attaching the ground to the chassis, sand all the paint away from the contact point. A grounding block like the Street Wires GT4 should be used whenever possible as this piece of equipment has 5 times the surface area of a normal screw.

The gauge of the power and ground wire is often an overlooked aspect of amplifier installation. The more power the amplifier receives, the more power it will produce. power cables have a natural resistance, and will lose voltage by the time the power makes its way to the amplifier. The large gauge diameter wire will hold more voltage over longer runs. Also, by having a larger diameter ground wire, the amplifier can run more efficiently. it recommends using a minimum of 4 gauge power and ground cables to get the best performance.

double check all the previous connection installation steps, in particular the speaker and power wiring. securely mount the amplifier. if everything is in order, reconnect the vehicle’s negative battery connection and begin following the

Feature setup and Adjustments steps.
