SAFEGUARDS

Please take the time to read this Owners Manual.

The following guidelines are designed to assure a safe and properly installed Xtant Mobile Audio System .

All Xtant amplifiers and accessories are intended to be installed by a certified professional mobile audio installation specialist. It is the recommendation of

Xtant Technologies that your new Xtant product(s) and all of your mobile audio products be installed by your Authorized Xtant Select Dealer.

Installer’s Reference (insert)

The Installer’s Reference is an insert included in this manual. It is designed to assist your Authorized Xtant Select Dealer’s professional installer.

Installation techniques critical to the creation of a high-performance mobile audio sound system, (procedures for running wires, basic safety rules, and system layout concepts) are not presented in this owners manual. All

Authorized Xtant Select Dealers have been chosen for their expertise in system design and advanced installation capabilities and Xtant highly recommends that you have all of your mobile audio products professionally installed. If, however, you choose to install your Xtant amplifier yourself, please refer to the Installer’s Reference prior to installation.

Wiring Requirements

All Xtant amplifiers have minimum wire gauge requirements for Power,

Ground, Remote Turn-On, and Speaker cables. Please refer to the Installer’s

Reference for recommended wire gauges.

Fusing Requirements

All Xtant amplifiers have on-board power fuses. However, it is recommended that a fuse of like value be installed at the positive terminal of the battery.

In the case of a multi-amp system, use a fuse value equal to the combined value of all (system amplifier’s) on-board power fuses.

Water and Moisture

Install all Xtant amplifiers and accessories in a location free of moisture or exposure to water.

The 2200ix is a 2 channel amplifier designed to provide exceptional flexibility and outstanding performance in a low profile package. It can be utilized to operate a complete system or, with its on-board crossover, dedicated to operate any specific section of a multi-amp mobile audio system.

By utilizing the on-board crossover’s RCA line outputs, you can steer specific frequency ranges to additional amplifiers, thus, eliminating the need for external, active crossover components in many system designs.

As part of the Xtant “ix” Series, the 2200ix incorporates the latest proprietary technology in Thermal Management and exclusive Transitional Power

Supply, each working in harmony to improve amplifier efficiency. This increased efficiency translates to less current draw while producing rated power.

Standard Features

Bonded Fin Cooling: Aerospace technology with forced convection cooling for enhanced thermal performance.

Transitional Supply: Fully regulated, high efficiency power supply provides lower current draw at rated output power.

Crossover: 18 dB per octave “Butterworth” filter network with selectable

Bypass (Full Range), High Pass, Band Pass, or Low Pass modes of operation.

Frequency Selection is via a 12 pin Frequency Module (SIP). The amplifier is shipped with a 90 Hz SIP installed, 13 other frequencies are available from your

Xtant Dealer. Refer to page 7 of this manual for a list of the available frequencies.

Noise Gate: Provides deep muting when no musical signal is present.

Features include adjustable threshold and bypass switch.

Balanced / Floating Input: All “ix” Series amplifiers are supplied with Balanced / Floating inputs. This circuitry helps to eliminate “system noise” associated with “ground-loops”.

Modular Expansion Port: Xtant amplifiers are supplied with a modular port used for docking any of Xtant’s signal processing modules.

Protection Circuitry: Both Thermal and Overcurrent protection has been incorporated into all Xtant amplifiers. In the event of a problem, the amplifier will reduce its power to maintain operation.

Status LEDs: Four LEDs, visible through the cover, indicate operational status of all Xtant amplifiers. The red LED illuminates when the amplifier is

“ON”, the green LED indicates when the noise gate is open, the yellow LED indicates that overcurrent protection is employed and the orange LED indicates that the thermal protection circuit is operational.

ON-BOARD ELECTRONIC CROSSOVER

The 22001X features a three-way electronic crossover. The crossover is tied to a set of inputs and controls the frequency range of the associated Channels. Independent frequency selection is provided for both the High and Low Pass sections. A set of selectable RCA line outputs (to feed additional components) are included with the crossover. In addition, the crossover features two on-board header jumpers (one for the amplifier and one for the RCA line outputs) which allows you to select Bypass (Full Range),

High Pass, Low Pass, and/or Band Pass mode. When chosen, the Band Pass selection is available via the Low Pass jumper position for the RCA line outputs.

The following Frequency Modules (SIPs)* are available from your Xtant

Dealer: 50 Hz, 70 Hz, 80 Hz, 90 Hz, 120 Hz, 150 Hz, 300 Hz, 500 Hz, 700 Hz,

1 kHz, 3 kHz, 4 kHz, and 5 kHz.

Please refer to the Installer’s Reference (insert) for the Frequency Module receptacle(s) location and chart of frequency/SIP value code numbers

* SIP : an acronym referring to multiple resistors in a Single In-Line Package

OPTIONAL ACCESSORY MODULES

Xtant optional accessory modules are easily and quickly installable by your Authorized Xtant Dealer. The upgrade modules snap into place on the amplifiers PC board when the top of the unit is removed. These accessories enhance your entire system, expanding and customizing performance for your unique applications.

PARAMETRIC EQUALIZATION MODULE – PQM 1

The PQM-1 is a precision tuning instrument, designed to be adjusted with the use of a Real-Time-Analyzer. This true, fully adjustable, one band parametric equalizer provides individual frequency, Q/bandwidth, and +/- 18dB gain adjustment controls. By utilizing one of three (3) frequency modules included, any frequency from 20 Hz to 20kHz can be chosen. The “Q” ranges from 1 to 10 in value, allowing a wide variety of bandwidth adjustment to address the subtle tuning requirements common to mobile audio systems. All 2-channel

Xtant amplifiers can accept one PQM-1. All 3/4-channel amplifiers will accept two PQM-1 modules if desired (one PQM-1 per 2 channels of input).

24 DB / OCTAVE CROSSOVER MODULE – CM 24X

The CM 24X upgrades the standard on-board crossovers provided on all Xtant “ix” and “x” Series amplifiers with a

24 dB per octave “Linkwitz - Riley” filter. The CM 24x module improves loudspeaker polar response while its steeper slope provides enhanced system design flexibility.

MAINTENANCE

Recommended Cleaning Procedures

Cleaning the fan / Circuit Board – Every 90 Days

A.

The internal fan in all Xtant amplifiers need periodic cleaning.

If you are in a high dust environment, every 30 days is recommended. We recommend that your dealer remove the cover and clean the fan blades with a soft brush. Loose dust can be removed with a vacuum hose.

Caution: Have your dealer check the fan for obstructions if your amplifier over heats. When the Thermal Protection Circuit is engaged, the orange LED will be illuminated and power may be reduced.

B.

Have your dealer check the circuit board for dust. If present, use a low pressure air source to blow-off the dust particles. DO NOT use a high-pressure source, brush or any similar device to clean the circuit board!

Cleaning the Amplifier – Every 30 days

A.

Clean the stainless steel cover with a light dust cloth. For a more thorough cleaning, use window cleaner that is ammonia free. Apply the cleaner to the cloth (not the amplifier) and wipe the surface. Take care not to catch the cloth on the copper mesh.

Caution:

B.

Do not allow liquids to touch the circuit board.

To polish the stainless steel cover Xtant recommends the use of WD 40™. It is important to note that stainless steel has a (directional) grain. As a rule of thumb, always polish with the grain. Apply the WD40™ to the cloth (not the amplifier) and wipe the surface. Take care not to catch the cloth on the copper mesh.
