Bridging
The amplifier is capable of bridging a left and right terminal into a single full range channel with higher output
power. For instance, the L-/R+ channels when wired as shown will increase the output power from 125W per
channel to a 500W channel (for a 4 Ohm load). The most common are shown in the figure above: two full range
channels or a bridged subwoofer channel.
Internal Bridging
Terminals that can be used in bridging mode are identified by the black boxes next to each terminal.
In the PA D2000.2, the two black boxes work together to create an internally bridged hookup.
AMPLIFIER INSTALLATION
Mounting Locations
The location of your amplifier will depend on several important issues. Due to the low profile and compact
size of the Polk Audio PA D Series amplifier, 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 surface.

around the amplifier for adequate cooling.
Trunk Compartment
Mounting your amplifier in the trunk provides excellent performance as long as you do not restrict the airflow
around the heatsink of the amplifier. For optimal results, mount the amplifier with as much clearance as possible.
This type of mounting will yield the best cooling due to the convection effect of the amplifier chassis.

INSTALLATION GUIDELINES
Power for systems with a single amplifier can be supplied by most automotive electrical systems. Systems with multiple
amplifiers may require a higher capacity battery, alternator or the use of a storage capacitor. Polk Audio PA D Series
amplifiers do generate a certain amount of heat as part of normal operation. Be sure the area around the amplifier
is unobstructed to allow adequate air circulation. Remember, beach blankets, last week’s laundry, school books
and homework papers placed on top of the amplifier impede air flow and may cause damage.
1. Please read this owner’s manual carefully before installing your amplifier.
2. Disconnect the battery ground terminal prior to making any electrical connections.
3. Check for any hazards or obstructions such as gas tanks, fuel or brake lines, and wiring harnesses
before mounting the amplifier.
4. Pick a mounting location that will provide adequate access and ventilation and protect the amplifier
from heat, moisture, and dirt.
5. Avoid sharp metal areas when routing cables to the amplifier, and run RCA cables away
from the power cables and other potentially noisy car harnesses.
6. The amplifier should be grounded with a short, heavy gauge wire connected directly to the car
at a bare metal surface, preferably scraped body metal. Do not use factory ground locations,
seat bolts, or brackets that are spot welded.
7. Always fuse your power connection within 12 inches of the battery terminal. Use a fuse or circuit breaker
rated slightly more than the on-board fuse(s) of the amplifier(s). The gauge of power wire used should take
into account the total current draw of the system, and the length of wire used. IASCA and other auto sound
competition organizations have charts available for this; you can also find a chart in the MECP study guide.
Minimum wire gauge recommendations for the individual amplifiers are listed on the specification page.
Always use the same gauge wire for the amplifier ground that you use for the power wire. Be sure
to examine the battery ground cable of the vehicle, and if necessary, upgrade it by adding an additional
ground wire that is the same gauge as the amplifier’s power wire. Remember, the amplifier can only
deliver its rated output when it is not current limited by the power and ground supply wires.
8. This amplifier is designed to drive a speaker load that measures from 2 to 8 Ohms (4 Ohms minimum bridged).
Keep in mind that heat is the long-term enemy of automotive electronics and the lower your speaker load,
the more heat is generated. For low-impedance speaker applications or restricted ventilation installations,
an external cooling fan may be advisable.
9. Battery and ground connections to the vehicle should be made with crimped ring terminals of the appropriate
size (surface area is what counts;) soldering the terminals after crimping is also recommended.
10. Due to the high-frequency MOSFET switching power supply, filtering the power cable is not generally required
(remember that the amp can’t deliver full output if the power supply is restricted.) Proper grounding of the
signal source is mandatory for the amplifier to reach its performance peak. If the RCA inputs are not grounded
adequately via the signal source, electrical noise from the vehicle may be picked up in the system.
Step By Step Installation
1. Determine the location for the amplifier. Refer to the Mounting Locations section
of this guide for detailed information.
2. Decide on the system configuration for your amplifier. For system suggestions,
refer to the Speaker Wiring Diagrams section of this guide.
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 Line levels and power and speaker wires away from factory
electrical wires and system as they pose a great potential for induced system noise.
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
Ê Ê “œÕ˜Ìˆ˜}ʅœiÃÊ>˜`Ê«Ài‡`ÀˆÊ̅iÃiʅœiÃÊ܈̅Ê>ÊÃÌ>˜`>À`Ê£Én¸Ê`ÀˆÊLˆÌ°
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 so that the chassis of the amplifier is twisted or bent.
6. Turn the vehicle’s key switch to the off position.
7. Disconnect the vehicle’s battery ground terminal.

9. Connect the line level and speaker wires to the amplifier. Check the quality of your speakers and signal
connections. This will determine the ultimate performance of your Polk Audio PA D Series amplifier.
Refer to the Line Level Inputs/Outputs/Controls and Speaker Wiring Diagrams sections of this guide
for correct wiring instructions.
10. Reconnect the ground terminal to the battery after power, speaker, and line level connections are completed.
11. Set crossovers. Refer to the Line Level Inputs/Outputs/Controls section of this manual for detailed instructions.
12. Once satisfied that all connections and settings are correct, install the fuse located 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 voiding of your warranty and possible damage to the amplifier.
SET UP AND TROUBLESHOOTING
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 Polk Audio PA D Series amplifier.
1. Check all the wiring connections to be sure they are correct and secure.
2. Turn the signal source volume control all the way down. Set any tone controls
to their flat or defeated positions. This includes the loudness control.
3. Turn the level controls of the amplifier to their minimum positions.
4. Turn the head unit on. Check to see if the power LED located on the connection side of the amplifier
is on. If not, please refer to the Power Inputs/Speaker Outputs and the Troubleshooting Tips sections
of this manual for instructions.
5. If using an aftermarket head unit, turn the level controls of the amplifier about one quarter of a turn
counterclockwise. Slowly increase the volume level of the head unit 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 Inputs/Speaker Outputs and the Troubleshooting Tips sections of this manual to solve
your installation problems.
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 Line Level Inputs/Outputs/Controls section of this manual and take corrective action.
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
(see Line Level Inputs/Outputs/Controls on page 5).
1. Turn the signal source volume control all the way down. Set any tone controls
to their flat or defeated positions. This includes the loudness control.
2. Turn the level controls of the amplifier to their minimum positions.
3. Choose music with high dynamic content that you like, with which
you are familiar, and will be used most often in the system.
4. Turn the head unit’s volume control 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 audible, reduce the volume
of the source unit until you have an undistorted output. Leave the volume control at this
position during your system tuning.
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 the level control back slightly
for an undistorted output. Depending on your system, the midrange and tweeter output may
be on the same output channels.
