Selecting fine audio equipment such as the unit you’ve just purchased is only the start of your
musical enjoyment. Now it’s time to consider how you can maximize the fun and excitement your
equipment offers. This manufacturer and the Electronic Industries Association’s Consumer
Electronics Group want you to get the most out of your equipment by playing it at a safe level. One
that lets the sound come through loud and clear without annoying blaring or distortion—and, most
importantly, without affecting your sensitive hearing.
Sound can be deceiving. Over time your hearing “comfort level” adapts to higher volumes of
sound. So what sounds “normal” can actually be loud and harmful to your hearing. Guard against
this by setting your equipment at a safe level BEFORE your hearing adapts.
To establish a safe level:
• Start your volume control at a low setting.
• Slowly increase the sound until you can hear it comfortably and clearly, and without distortion.
Once you have established a comfortable sound level:
• Set the dial and leave it there.
Taking a minute to do this now will help to prevent hearing damage or loss in the future. After
all, we want you listening for a lifetime.
We Want You Listening For A Lifetime
Used wisely, your new sound equipment will provide a lifetime of fun and enjoyment. Since
hearing damage from loud noise is often undetectable until it is too late, this manufacturer and the
Electronic Industries Association’s Consumer Electronics Group recommend you avoid prolonged
exposure to excessive noise. This list of sound levels is included for your protection.
Decibel
Level Example
30 Quiet library, soft whispers
40 Living room, refrigerator, bedroom away from traffic
50 Light traffic, normal conversation, quiet office
60 Air conditioner at 20 feet, sewing machine
70 Vacuum cleaner, hair dryer, noisy restaurant
80 Average city traffic, garbage disposals, alarm clock at two feet.
THE FOLLOWING NOISES CAN BE DANGEROUS UNDER CONSTANT EXPOSURE
90 Subway, motorcycle, truck traffic, lawn mower
100 Garbage truck, chain saw, pneumatic drill
120 Rock band concert in front of speakers, thunderclap
140 Gunshot blast, jet plane
180 Rocket launching pad

Note:
• This unit is for vehicles with a 12-volt battery and
negative grounding. Before installing it in a recre-
ational vehicle, truck or bus, check the battery
voltage.
• To avoid shorts in the electrical system, be sure to
disconnect the ≠ battery cable before beginning
installation.
• Refer to the owner’s manual for details on con-
necting the power amp and other units, then make
connections correctly.
• Secure the wiring with cable clamps or adhesive
tape. To protect the wiring, wrap adhesive tape
around them where they lie against metal parts.
• Route and secure all wiring so it cannot touch any
moving parts, such as the gear shift, handbrake and
seat rails. Do not route wiring in places that get
hot, such as near the heater outlet. If the insulation
of the wiring melts or gets torn, there is a danger of
the wiring short-circuiting to the vehicle body.
• Don’t pass the yellow lead through a hole into the
engine compartment to connect to the battery. This
will damage the lead insulation and cause a very
dangerous short.
• Do not shorten any leads. If you do, the protection
circuit may fail to work when it should.
• Never feed power to other equipment by cutting
the insulation of the power supply lead of the unit
and tapping into the lead. The current capacity of
the lead will be exceeded, causing overheating.
• When replacing fuse, be sure to use only fuse of
the rating prescribed on this unit.
• Since a unique BPTL circuit is employed, never
wire so the speaker leads are directly grounded or
the left and right ≠ speaker leads are common.
If you ground the products together and the ground
becomes detached, there is a risk of damage to the
products or fire.
• The black lead is ground. Please ground this lead
separately from the ground of high-current prod-
ucts such as power amps.
If you ground the products together and the
ground becomes detached, there is a risk of dam-
age to the products or fire.
• Speakers connected to this unit must be high-
power types with minimum rating of 50 W and
impedance of 4 to 8 ohms. Connecting speakers
with output and/or impedance values other than
those noted here may result in the speakers catch-
ing fire, emitting smoke, or becoming damaged.
• When this product’s source is switched ON, a con-
trol signal is output through the blue/white lead.
Connect to an external power amp’s system remote
control or the car’s Auto-antenna relay control ter-
minal (max. 300 mA 12 V DC). If the car features
a glass antenna, connect to the antenna booster
power supply terminal.
• When an external power amp is being used with
this system, be sure not to connect the blue/white
lead to the amp’s power terminal. Likewise, do not
connect the blue/white lead to the power terminal
of the auto-antenna. Such connection could cause
excessive current drain and malfunction.
• To avoid short-circuiting, cover the disconnected
lead with insulating tape. Especially, insulate the
unused speaker leads without fail. There is a possi-
bility of short-circuiting if the leads are not insulat-
ed.
• If this unit is installed in a vehicle that does not
have an ACC (accessory) position on the ignition
switch, the red lead of the unit should be connected
to a terminal coupled with ignition switch ON/OFF
operations. If this is not done, the vehicle battery
may be drained when you are away from the vehi-
cle for several hours. (Fig. 1)

• Cords for this product and those for other prod-
ucts may be different colors even if they have the
same function. When connecting this product to
another product, refer to the supplied Installation
manuals of both products and connect cords that
have the same function.

Installation
Note:
• Before finally installing the unit, connect the
wiring temporarily, making sure it is all connected
up properly, and the unit and the system work
properly.
• Use only the parts included with the unit to ensure
proper installation. The use of unauthorized parts
can cause malfunctions.
• Consult with your nearest dealer if installation
requires the drilling of holes or other modifications
of the vehicle.
• Install the unit where it does not get in the driver’s
way and cannot injure the passenger if there is a
sudden stop, like an emergency stop.
• The semiconductor laser will be damaged if it
overheats, so don’t install the unit anywhere hot
— for instance, near a heater outlet.
• If installation angle exceeds 60° from horizontal,
the unit might not give its optimum performance.
