1. INTRODUCTION
The V8.250 eight Channels Power Amplifier is designed for professional use and provides unparalleled quality. It
Includes soft start, signal limit, four variable-speed-low-noise fans, and includes eight independent channels with separate
power supply. Each channel is equipped with independent protective circuitry against open circuit, short circuit,
mismatched loads and overheat. Furthermore, every channel has also a protection LED that lights up before the
amplifier is in normal operation and flashes when the amplifier is in over-load protection or short-circuit protection, and
lights up when over-heat protection or DC protection occurs. CLIP LED that shows true amplifier clipping. The high
qualitycomponents and the carefully designed circuits ensure excellent audio performance and an extremely linear
frequency response, giving crystal-clear sound in the high range and an up-front, full-bodied bottom end. This amplifier
guarantees total reliability and a trouble-free use even in the most demanding conditions. We believe the V8.250
not only look great, but provide a perfect performance, what you get is unprecedented performance at an incredibly
attractive price.

1 Power Switch
The output capacity of V 8.250 power amplifier is very high, be sure to use a speaker system that has sufficient
input capacity. If the input capacity of your speaker system is lower than the rated output of the V8.250 power
amplifier, you can protect your speakers by connecting a fuse serially between the speaker and the amplifier
as shown below.
It switches on / off V8.250 main power.

4 Protection LED
This red LED indicator lights up when the amplifier is powered ON, and the soft-start protection system is working.
No sound is outputted during soft-start protection. If short-circuit protection or over-load protection is activated,
this indicator flashes and no sound is outputted. The speakers system is actually disconnected with the amplifier
outputs when this indicator flashes. when over-heat protection or DC protection is activated. At this time, protection
LED lights up, and audio output is shut down automatically, and no sound is outputted. When the amplifier have
no malfunction, all the protection systems deactivate and protection LED lights off.
Use the following formula to determine the fuse capacity according to the speaker's input capacity.
2
Po=I R
I= Po/R
Po[W] : Speaker's continuous input capacity (noise or RMS)
R[ ] : Speaker's nominal impedance
I[A] : Required fuse capacity
As to the speaker cable, if you use a long one, use as thick a cable as possible to prevent deterioration of the
damping factor or power loss inside the cable.
5 Signal LED
After signal is inputted, LED becomes brighter while the signal level increases.
6 Level Control
This pot is used to adjust output level.
7 Fan
The unit is equipped with two fans in the front, which can accelerate the flow of air to lower the temperature inside
unit. The inside temperature determines the fan speed, which controls the inside air flowing speed.

4.2 Rack Mounting
the most secure mounting is on a universal rack shelf available from various rack manufactures or your music dealer.
The V8.250 professional power amplifier fits into one standard 19" rack unit of space. Be sure that there is enough
air space around the unit for sufficient ventilation. If heat release is inadequate, this unit will retain heat inside, which
may cause the protection, or even a fire.
The V8.250 provides three operating modes with each unit: stereo mode, parallel mode and bridged mode, you
can decide each specific operating mode according to your actual application circumstance. Following examples will
show you the typical connections, you can refer to install your V8.250 into a sound system:
5.1 Operate V8.250 Power Amplifier In Stereo Mode
In this mode, each channel works independently. The signal inputted from one channel will be outputted from the
corresponding channel.

4. Installation
4.1 Mains connection
Do not insert the power cord into this unit until voltage has been correctly set. Please confirm if the power cord is
connected correctly . Please ensure that the V8.250 professional power amplifier is supplied with the correct voltage
before turning on this unit. If you can't power up this unit while turning on the mains switch (1), check the Breaker
(14) on the rear panel first, and check if it is in the release state. Otherwise, contact the technician or qualified
personnel for checking if the unit power is 3000W or for any other service.
Caution: To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not perform any servicing other than contained in this manual unless
you are qualified to do so. Please turn off this unit before any installation and connection, esp. when you connect
your unit into the sound system. This is important to prevent damage to the unit itself as well as other consequent
speaker system. This is important to prevent damage to the unit itself as well as other consequent speaker system.
The mains connection of the V8.250 professional power amplifier is made by using the enclosed power cord and a
standard IEC receptacle, and it meets all of the international safety certification requirement.
