Installation

WARNING:

Prolonged exposure to sound pressure levels in excess of 100dB can cause permanent hearing loss.

Cerwin Vega Mobile amplifiers can exceed that level so please exercise restraint when listening and enjoying your new amplifier.

GENERAL PRECAUTIONS

•This unit is designed for negative ground 12V DC operation only.

•Total system impedance must not be less than 2ohms, in a bridged OR stereo configuration

•Avoid installing the unit where:

- It would be subject to high temperatures, such as from direct sunlight or hot air from the heater.

- It would be exposed to rain or moisture.

- It would be subject to dust or dirt.

•Do not cover the unit with carpet or wires.

•Do not use the unit with a weak auto battery. Optimum performance depends on a normal battery supply voltage.

•For safety reasons, keep the volume of your car audio system moderate while driving your vehicle so that you can still hear normal traffic sounds outside your car.

MOUNTING PRECAUTIONS

Although Cerwin Vega Mobile amplifiers incorporate heat sinks and protection circuits, mounting the amplifier in a tight space without any air movement can still damage internal circuitry over time. Choose a location that provides adequate ventilation around the amplifier. For easy system set-up, mount the amplifier so the side panel controls will be accessible after installation. To increase thermal run times on low impedance loads, an additional fan is recommended, remember any moving air across the amplifier will reduce heat.

In addition, observe the following precautions:

1. Using a felt pen mark the mounting hole locations.

2. Mounting the amplifier on carpet will significantly reduce air flow, resulting in reduced thermal run times.

3. Mount the amplifier on a solid surface. Avoid mounting to sub woofer enclosures or areas prone to vibration. Do not install

the amplifier on plastic or other combustible materials.

4. Prior to mounting the amplifier, make sure not to cut or drill into the fuel tank, fuel lines, brake lines (under chassis) or

electrical wiring.

WIRING PRECAUTIONS

1. Before installation, make sure the source unit power switch is in the OFF position.

2. Disconnect the negative (-) lead of the battery before making any power connections.

3. When making connections, be sure that each one is clean and secure. Insulate all of your connections. Failure to do so

may damage your equipment.

4. A secure clean ground connection is critical to the performance of your amplifier. Connect the ground directly to the car

chassis to minimize resistance and avoid any noise problems.

5. Add an external fuse on the amplifier’s positive (+) power lead and connect it as close as possible to the vehicle’s (+)

battery terminal. Use a rating that equals the total current consumption at full output of all amplifiers in the system. This

external fuse will protect the vehicle from short circuits that can cause a fire.

Installation

1

Status LED’s - These lights indicate when the amplifier is powered up normally and when there is a protection fault. The Protect

LED is laminated when there is a problem with your amplifier. Please contact your authorize CVM dealer or call CVM’s technical support.

2

HPF Crossover Adjustment - Use this adjustment to select the crossover point. Remember that you must select the High Pass position (HPF) of the crossover adjustment switch first. The range of adjustment is limited between 50-250 Hz.

3

Vega Bass Boost -

This control adds 0 to +9dB of boost at 45Hz. Be cautious when adding boost to some subwoofer systems as they may not be able to handle the additional low frequency boost. In the 0dB position, no bass boost is added.

4

LPF Crossover Adjustment - Use this adjustment to select the crossover point. Remember that you must select the Low Pass position (LPF) of the crossover adjustment switch first. The range of adjustment is limited between 50-250 Hz.

5

Crossover Selection Switch - This switch allows you to select the crossover. Use High Pass for midrange or high frequency speakers. Use Low Pass for subwoofers. In the FLAT position, neither crossover adjustment knob has an affect and all speakers will receive the full frequency range.

6

Input Gain Adjustment - This control matches the preamp stage of the Cerwin-Vega Mobile amplifier to your source unit.

This is NOT a volume control. The range is between aprox 200mV and 6V.

7

RCA Input - The RCA jacks allow for a normal Left and Right channel signal input. Simply connect to the source unit using RCA type audio cables, keeping them away from power wiring wherever possible to reduce risk of noise.

8

Power Input Connections - These connections are for input power, chassis ground, and remote turn-on. Use a minimum of

8 gauge wiring for power and ground connections. 4 Guage is recommended for the mono block. The terminals will handle up to 8 gauge wiring with no problem whatsoever(4 guage on the mono block). Be sure any wiring that passes through metal has a grommet!

9

Power Fuses - Standard automotive type ATC/ATO fuses are used on Cerwin Vega Mobile amplifiers. Always replace with the correct fuse size. Never insert fuses of higher values. Doing so will void the warranty of your Cerwin Vega Mobile amplifier. Also include a main fuse at the connection to the vehicle battery within18 inches of the positive battery post. It is also important to upgrade the connection between the negative battery post and the chassis of the vehicle. This greatly reduces possibilities of weak electrical “links” in the circuit.

10

Speaker Output Terminals - Connect your speakers to these terminals. Stereo connections are connected as labeled. Bridged connections use the LEFT + and RIGHT - as the two connections. The 2 and 4 channel amplifiers will perform into 2 Ohm stereo loads or 4 Ohm bridged loads. DO NOT run 2 Ohm bridged loads on these amplifiers! The mono blocks will run 2 ohms mono, BUT NOT 1 ohm mono!

11

Remote Level Control - This port is for the remote level control (included). The control is intended to allow the user to control the level of gain up to the maximum adjustment level set on the amplifier. The control does not add additional boost, it only attenuates the setting that is fixed at the amplifier’s control panel.

12

High Level Input - Use these inputs when there is no low-level RCA output available from your source unit. Connecting your Cerwin

Vega Mobile amplifier directly to the vehicle’s factory radio would be a perfect example of this.

5. Prepare the ground wire for attachment to the amplifier by stripping 5/8” of insulation from the end of the wire. Always

use a wire of the same gauge as the power connection, never smaller. Insert the bare wire into the GND terminal and

tighten the set screw to secure the cable in place. Prepare the chassis ground by scraping any paint from the metal surface

and thoroughly clean the area of all dirt and grease. Strip the other end of the wire, crimp and soldier a ring connector.

Fasten the cable to the chassis using a non-anodized screw with a star washer and a nut.

WARNING:

It is important to upgrade the ground connection between the negative (-) battery post and the vehicle body or chassis to achieve optimum electrical performance.

6. Prepare the REM turn-on wire for attachment to the amplifier

by stripping 5/8 inch (15.9mm) of insulation from the end

of the wire. Insert the bare wire into the REM terminal and

tighten the set screw to secure the wire in place. Connect the

other end of the REM wire to a switched 12 volt positive

source. The switched voltage is usually taken from the

source unit’s remote amp turn on lead. If the source unit

does not have this output available, the recommended

solution is to wire to an accessory terminal in the car’s fuse

block using a relay to isolate the amplifer from the vehicles

accessory circuit. This however will turn the amplifier on and

off with the ignition key, regardless of whether the car stereo

is on or off.

7. Securely mount the amplifier to the vehicle or amp rack. Be careful not to mount the amplifier on cardboard or plastic

panels. Doing so may enable the screws to pull out from the panel due to road vibration or sudden vehicle stops.

8. Connect from source signal by connecting the RCA audio cables to the input jacks at the amplifier.

RCA CONNECTION DIAGRAM

9. Connect the car speakers. Speakers impedance should never be less than 2 Ohms stereo, 4 Ohms bridged(the mono block

is stable into 2 ohms). For most applications 18 gauge wire is adequate for the speaker leads. For leads in excess of ten

feet, 16 gauge wire is recommended. Strip the speaker wires 1/2” (12.7mm) and insert into the speaker terminal block,

then tighten the set screw to secure into place. When wiring the speakers, pay careful attention to the polarity of the

terminals on the speakers and make certain they correspond to the polarity on the amplifier. DO NOT chassis ground any

of the speaker leads as unstable operation or damage to the amplifier and/or speaker may result.

Set up Wire Diagrams

Placing the x-over switch in the FULL position (XED600.2, & XED600.4) sets the amplifier to Full Range. This setting allows

ALL frequencies to pass to the speakers. Placing the switch in the HPF or LPF position activates the crossover.

(LPF only on XED1200.1M, and it is always ON).

Placing the switch in the HPF position sets the amplifier to the High Pass Filter mode, enabling frequencies above the cutoff point to pass. For a fullrange speaker system begin tuning with the frequency set between 60Hz and 80Hz.

Placing the switch in the LPF position sets the amplifier to the Low Pass Filter mode, enabling frequencies below the cutoff point to pass. For a subwoofer system begin tuning with the frequency set between 80Hz and 120Hz.

To adjust the gain setting, turn the amplifier gains all the way down (counterclockwise). If using a remote level control

(XED600.2, XED600.4(optional), & XED1200.1M) plug the level control into the amplifier and turn it to the “MAX” position.

Next turn the source unit volume up to almost full volume (usually about 2/3rds of the way up) or untill the output starts to distort on an oscilloscope. This will be NEARLY full volume on most source units, perhaps one or two “clicks” down from maximum volume. Next, increase the amplifier gain setting until adequate volume is achieved, or untill distortion is audible and then turn it down a bit until the distortion is inaudible.

NOTE:

Ideal signal to noise and dynamic range are achieved with the gain at minimum. Most users find adequate gain and volume is achieved at less than halfway in the adjustment range. Avoid setting the amplifier gain very high as noise and distortion will increase significantly. For a more in depth level setting (gain adjustment) procedure, visit the CVM website.

The HPF or LPF crossover adjustment can now be fine tuned. If you are using the amplifier in a HPF configuration and would like the system to be a little bit louder you can increse the HP Filter frequency and reset the “Gain” of the amplifier. Raising the HPF frequency up to high however will cause a loss of mid range and bass. If you are using the amplifier in a HPF filter configuration and you hear voice or vocals coming from your subwoofer system you can turn the LP Filter frequency down (lower).

After setting the input gain adjustment and crossover, you may choose to add a small amount of “Vega Bass Boost” in the low frequency region. Remember that the Bass Boost feature will not fix a poorly designed subwoofer enclosure or subwoofers that didn’t sound good to begin with.

1. Make sure any bass EQ or low frequency equalization from the source unit is set to OFF or FLAT.

2. While playing the same musical selections used during the gain setting process, slowly increase the level of the Bass EQ.

You should be able to notice a obvious change between 0 and +9dB. If you do not notice much difference, then it will not

serve any benefit to increase the boost further.

3. If the boost has audible benefits without adding appreciable distortion, find a level that suits your taste. Remember: it’s

much easier to construct the right subwoofer enclosure for your listening preferences than relying on a bass boost control to

do the job!
