Proper installation matched with MTX speakers and subwoofers provide superior sound and performance for endless hours of enjoyment whether you are waking the neighbors or just out enjoying your tunes. Congratulations and enjoy the ultimate audio experience with MTX! FEATURES • Compact Size • Double Sided PCB • Surface Mount Components • Mosfet Design • LPF and HPF Crossover • Adjustable Bass Boost • Noise Free Design • Short, Thermal, and High/Low Voltage Protection CONTROL FUNCTIONS 1. Speakers - Connect speakers/subwoofers to these terminals. Be sure to check wire for proper polarity. Never connect the speaker cables to the chassis ground. 2. +12 Volt Power- Connect this terminal through a FUSE or CIRCUIT BREAKER to the positive terminal of the vehicle battery or the positive terminal of an isolated audio system battery. WARNING: Always protect this power cable by installing a fuse or circuit breaker of the appropriate size within 18 inches (45cm) of the battery terminal connection. 3. Remote Turn On -This terminal turns on the amplifier when (+) 12 volt is applied to it. Connect it to the remote turn on lead of the head unit or signal source. 4. GND- Connect this cable directly to the frame of the vehicle. Make sure the metal frame has been stripped of all paint down to the bare metal. Use the shortest distance possible. It is always a good idea to replace the factory ground at this time with a cable equal or larger than the new amplifier power cable. CAUTION: Do not connect this terminal directly to the vehicle battery ground terminal or any other factory ground points. 5. RCA Input Jacks- These RCA input jacks are for use with source units that have RCA outputs. A source unit with a minimum level of 200mV is required for proper operation. The use of high quality twisted pair cables is recommended to decrease the possibility of radiated noise entering the system. 6. Gain Control -The Gain control will match the amplifier's sensitivity to the source units signal voltage. The operating range is 5V to 200mV. NOTE: This is NOT a volume control. 7. Low Pass Filter Control (Mono Block)- This control is used to select the desired low pass x-over frequency. The frequency can be adjusted from 40Hz to 220Hz for all bass mono models. 8. Subsonic Filter Control (Mono Block)- This control can filter out unwanted low frequency from 1OHz (OFF) to 50Hz. This function should only be used with vented enclosures. MTX.COM 9. Bass Boost Level Switch (Mono Block)- This switch can boost bass level by OdB, 6dB, or 12dB. The boost frequency is centered at 50Hz. 10. High Pass Filter (Full Range)- This controls the frequencies played for the front channels. Low frequencies can be cut off from OFF to 200Hz. At OFF position, no low frequencies cut off, meaning full range. 11. X-Over Mode and Frequency Control (Full Range)- These controls allow control over the frequencies played for the rear channels. There is an option for Low Pass, Full Range, or High Pass. In LP or HP mode, the crossover frequency can be tuned from 50Hz to 750Hz. 12. Power Indicator- This LED will light up when the amplifier is working properly. 13. Protection Indicator- The Red LED will light up and flash if there is a fault presented to the amplifier. Please disconnect the amplifier and resolve the fault before reconnecting the amplifier.

Any deviation from specified installation instructions can cause serious damage to the amplifier, speakers and/or vehicle's electrical system. Damage caused from improper installation is NOT covered under warranty. Please verify all connections prior to system turn on. 1. Disconnect the vehicle's negative battery cable. 2. Determine the mounting place for your MTX amplifier. Keep in mind there should be sufficient air flow for proper cooling. Mark the mounting holes from the amplifier to be drilled. Before drilling make sure all vehicle wires, gas lines, brake lines and gas tank are clear and will not interfere with installation. Drill the desired holes and mount the MTX amplifier. 3. Install a positive (+) power cable from the vehicle's battery through the firewall using a grommet or firewall bushing to avoid cable damage from sharp edges of the firewall. Run the cable through the interior of the vehicle and connect it to the amplifier's (+ 12V) terminal. Do not connect to the battery at this time. NOTE: Use only proper gauge wire for both positive and negative connections. 4. Install a circuit breaker or fuse within 18 inches of the battery. This effectively lowers the risk of severe damage to you or your vehicle in case of a short circuit or accident. Make sure the circuit breaker is switched off or the fuse is taken out of the fuse holder untill all connections are made. Now connect your positive power cable to the positive battery terminal of the battery. 5. Grounding - Locate a proper ground point on the vehicle's chassis and remove all paint, dirt or debris to reveal a bare metal surface. Attach the ground wire to that contact point. Connect the opposite end of the ground wire to the (GND) terminal on the MTX amplifier. 6. Connect a Remote Turn-on wire from the source unit to the MTX amplifier's (REM) terminal. If the source unit does not have a dedicated Remote Turn-on lead, you may connect to the source unit's Power Antenna lead. 7. Supply the signal to your MTX amplifier by connecting the signal cables using high quality RCA to the corresponding outputs at the source unit and inputs of the amplifier. 8. Connect your speakers to your MTX amplifier's speaker terminals using the correct gauge speaker wire. Your MTX amp can drive a 2Q (TD75.4 &TD500.1 D) and 1Q (TD1000.1 D) minimum load for max power. 9. Double check all previous installation steps, in particular, wiring and component connections. Once verified, reconnect the vehicle's negative battery cable, turn the circuit breaker on or place the fuse in the fuse holder. NOTE: Gain Levels on the amplifier should be turned all the way down (counter clockwise) before proceeding with adjustments. MTX .

The two negative terminals are paralleled inside the amplifiers, as are the two positive terminals. These are monoblock amplifiers, not multi-channel amplifiers. The minimum load for the TD500.1 D amplifier is 2Q. The minimum load for the TD1000.1D amplifier is 1Q. NOTA: La carga equivalente de woofers paralelos no puede ser menos que el valor nominal de Ia carga. Las dos terminales negativas estan en paralelo dentro de los amplificadores y tam bien las terminales positivas. Estos son amplificadores de monobloque, no amplificadores multicanal. La carga minima para el amplificadorTD500.1D es 2 Q. La carga minima para el amplificadorTD1000.1D es 1 Q. OBSERVACAO: A carga para lela equivalente do woofer nao pode ser menor que a carga nominal minima. Os dais terminais negatives, assim como os terminais positives, estao em paralelo dentro dos amplificadores. Os amplificadores sao monobloco e nao amplificadores multicanais. A carga minima do amplificadorTD500.1D e 2Q. A carga minima do amplificadorTD1000.1D e 1Q. REMARQUE: Une charge de cais.son de graves en parallele ne peut etre inferieure aIa valeur nominale minimale de charge. Les deux barnes negatives sont mises en parallele a l'interieur des amplificateurs, comme le sont les deux barnes positives. Ce sont des amplificateurs monoblocs et non des amplificateurs mlllti-canaux. La charge minimale pour l'amplificateur TD500.1 o· est de 2 Q.
