Owners Manual

Congratulations on purchasing your VIBE amplifier. Please read this manual in order to fully understand how to get the best results from this product and ensure that all advice on how to look after the product is followed.

Thank you for buying VIBE, we hope you enjoy listening to your product as much as we enjoyed creating it.

Attention

2

An aftermarket audio amplifier will place an additional load on the vehicles charging system.

Most modern vehicles have sufficient capacity in the charging system as not all the electrical components of the vehicle will be switched on at once.

Check the fuse rating of the amplifier and use this as the peak current requirement.

Generally the continuous current draw will be a third of the peak current.

Warning

During the normal use of this amplifier the heatsink may become very hot.

Please do not touch during or immediately after use.

Please ensure that when installing this product the heatsink will not come into contact with any materials that may be damaged by heat such as upholstery or plastics.

Mounting Guidelines

Your VIBE amplifier is designed with a swift installation routine in mind.

Please mount the amplifier in a dry location on a solid surface.

NEVER mount the amplifier upside down as this will cause the amplifier to over heat and will eventually damage the amplifier.

Before fixing the amplifier in place please ensure that there is sufficient air flow around the exterior of the casing, at least two inches is sufficient to allow effective cooling.

Fuse Close To Battery Chassis Ground

Low Level Input

High Level Input

NOTE : When using high level input it is not necessary to connect the remote turn on wire.

Do not connect both high level and low level input at the same time.

5

Power Cable

• At least 8 gauge cable should be used for the power connection to the amplifier.

• The power cable should be taken directly from the battery. Rubber grommets should be

used when passing through any bulkheads to prevent the cable from becoming chaffed

or cut.

• It is vital that a fuse / circuit breaker (of at least equal value to the one fitted in the

amplifier) is placed inline with the power cable and is no further than 18 inches away

from the battery.

• Please ensure that the fuse is not fitted until the entire installation procedure is complete.

Ground Cable

• At least 8 gauge cable should be used for the ground connection to the amplifier.

• The amplifier ground should be connected directly to the chassis of the vehicle, to

bare metal.

• The cable length should be kept to an absolute minimum.

• It is not recommended that you connect the ground cable to the vehicles seatbelts

anchor point.

Auto Turn On (High level Input Only)

• The Powerbox amplifiers feature an auto turn on circuit called Autosense.

• This circuit allows the amplifier to switch on and off without a remote turn on wire

when using high level input, for low level input (RCA) it will still be necessary to

connect the remote turn on wire from the headunit.

• When the connected source (headunit) is turned on the amplifier will turn on

automatically, after the connected source (headunit) is turned off the amplifier will

shut down.

RCA Cables

• Depending on the model number of your amplifier and the number of speakers you

wish to power you will have to run either one or two or RCA cables from the source to

the amplifier.

• Please take extra care when running these cables from the source to the amplifier.

Ensure that they are placed away from all items that can generate any interference,

wiring harnesses etc.

• It is recommended that the RCA cables should be run on opposite sides of the car

to the previously installed power cables if possible, to avoid the cable picking up

interference.

Set Up Section

To correctly set the gain control of the amplifier to match that of the source (headunit) use the following setup routine:

• Turn the gain control to minimum on the amplifier.

• Ensure the bass boost is set to 0 dB.

• Set all crossovers on the headunt ( if applicable) to flat and both bass and treble to zero.

• Turn up the source (headunit) to approx 3/4 volume.

• Very slowly turn up the gain on the amplifier until distortion can be heard in any of the

speakers or until the volume reaches an uncomfortable listening level when this is reached turn

the gain control down slightly.

The gain control is now set.

The setting of the crossover will depend on what kind of speaker you are installing.

For a subwoofer it is recommended that the crossover is set to low pass and the frequency is set to match that of the speakers specifications, or your preferred frequency - this is usually around 60 - 120 Hz

Note: The smaller the speaker, the less bass it can handle.

By using the crossovers correctly you will not only lengthen the life of your speakers but you will also get better performance from them.

To optimise your setup seek the advise of a professional installation engineer or visit your local VIBE audio dealer.
