Pride MEZZO, MILLE Manual | Manualzz

Before you begin , you will need tools, supplies and adapters. It is best to make sure you have everything you need before you start.

Allow air circulation around the amplifier.

When selecting a location, remember that amplifiers generate heat. Select a location where air can circulate around the amplifier.

Do not cover the AMPLIFIER with carpets or enclose it behind interior trim panels.

Every installation will be a bit different based upon vehicle design, Check all locations and placements carefully before making any cuts or connections.

Before you begin, always disconnect the battery negative terminal.

If wiring connections are made incorrectly the unit will not operate properly and could be damaged.

Follow the installation instructions carefully or have the amplifier installed by an authorized dealer.

The design philosophy of the amplifiers and mode of regulation requires that proper installation and load impedance instructions be adhered to at all times.

Minimum impedance recommended for all digital monoblock amplifiers ( MILLE & MEZZO ) are 1ohm.

For master/slave link operation, the minimum impedance for all digital monoblock amplifiers are 2ohm.

Each master amplifier must be paired up with a exact same model slave amp.

Fuses are equipped with for MILLE ( 30Ax3 ATC ). MEZZO is not equipped with the fuse.

Fuse ratings are 90A for MILLE and 120A for MEZZO single unit.

These fuse ratings should be sufficient under normal working conditions. However, if the amplifiers are overloaded ( see minimum impedance above ) fuses may blow.

Therefore, please try to avoid operating the amplifiers under these conditions.

1. Mount the amplifiers where air flow is the best.

2. Mount the amplifiers to a solid surface away from vibration, as these amplifiers are very heavy

and the vibration can damage the amplifiers.

3. Take extreme caution when mounting the amplifiers, so as not to damage the chassis with a drill or screwdriver.

4. Run 0 AWG or 4AWG wire from the battery, using fuses with 12” of the positive battery terminal.

The fuse is to protect the car and your car audio system from the fire that could be caused by a short circuit.

5. Run 0AWG or 4AWG ground wire as short as possible, to the closest chassis ground point.

Be sure to remove the paint around the chassis ground point to provide a more solid electrical connection.

6. Run a 16 AWG ( or larger ) wire to the remote turn-on lead of the headunit.

7. Connect the speakers as per wiring diagrams in the manual.

12AWG or larger speaker wire is recommended.

8. Mount remote level control in the car where it can be easily reached from the driver’s seat, if desired.

9. Using rca interconnect cables, connect all line inputs per the wiring diagrams which follow.

If possible, keep rca cables away from the 12V power and ground wire.

10. Set the controls as described on following pages.

Install as close as to the battery as possible

4~0 AWG wire

Connect to a good chassis ground. The ground connection should be clean, unpainted metal to provide a good electrical connection

Sheet Metal screw

4~0 AWG wire

Drill 1/8” hole in

Chassis sheet metal

Connect the source unit’s remote turn on lead from the source unit to the amplifier’s remote terminal. This turns on the amplifier whenever the source unit is turned on.

Please follow original fuse type and fuse rates.

MILLE has built-in Fuses ( 30A x 3 )

RCA INPUTS -

The RCA inputs ensure the highest quality contacts and the lowest noise in your audio system.

RCA OUTPUTS -

The RCA outputs connect another amplifier for multi car amplifiers system.

GAIN -

This adjusts the normal operating level of the amplifier by matching the level from the headunit.

SUBSONIC FILTER -

This allows you to tune the response of the amplifier at very low frequencies.

REMOTE CONTROL -

Use this to control level of the amplifier from your driver’s seat.

LOW PASS CROSSOVER FREQUENCY CONTROL -

This allows you to tune the response of the amplifier at higher bass frequencies to roll off for a seamless integration into your midbass.

POWER & PROTECT INDICATORS -

When the unit is powered on and operating correctly the power LED illuminates.

When the unit is malfunction or faulty, the protect LED is on.

PHASE -

It is adjustable from 0 to 180 degree.

MASTER/SLAVE ( LINK ) CONNECTION -

Using one amplifier set this to Output Master.

Second amp is set to Input Slave

In Strappable mode, Minimum impedance is 2ohm

Subwoofer speakers impedance should be checked vey carefully to prevent any damages to subwoofers and the amplifiers.

BASS BOOST -

This allows you to tune amplifier response with up to 9dB of boost centered at 45Hz

SPEAKER TERMINAL BLOCK -

Connect speaker cables from speaker terminal block to subwoofers.

Subwoofers impedance should be checked carefully.

GROUND ( GND ) & POWER ( +12V ) -

The power and ground will accommodate 0 or 4 AWG wire. Use high quality pure copper wire only.

REMOTE ( REM ) -

REM connector will accept wire sizes from12 to 18 AWG.

This terminal is used to remotely turn-on and turn-off the amplifier when +12V DC is applied.

TROUBLE SHOOTING

NO POWER LED ON, NO OUTPUT

Check +12V and GND connection

Check remote signal +12V

Check the external fuses or built-in.

POWER LED ON, NO OUTPUT

Check source unit for output

Check input gain control

Check RCA cable

Check speaker and wiring for shorts

Check for damaged speakers

NO SOUND ON ONE CHANNEL

Swap left/right input to check source

... If sound swaps too, source or signal cable is bad

Swap left/right speaker to check speakers

... If sound does not swap, speaker or speaker wiring is bad

... In any case, consult authorized dealer

AMPLIFIER GOES IN PROTECTION MODE AT HIGHER GAIN

Check speaker impedance ( MILLE & MEZZO ) is 1ohm for single unit

and 2ohm for link connection.

Check working voltages ( 8.5V - 16Volts for MILLE & MEZZO )

Check speaker wiring for short circuit

ENGINE OR ALTERNATOR WHINE NOISE

Check wiring. make sure RCA cables are not run parallel on same side of vehicle as power cable.

Check any preamps or black boxes in the signal path between source unit and amplifier

Make sure ground pin ( shield or outer barrel of rca cables ) have not lost connection and

that source unit has good reference ground.
