MOUNTING THE AMP
Note: It is recommended that you make all wire connections before permanently mounting the amp.
IMPORTANT: Disconnect the vehicle’s negative(-) battery terminal before beginning the installation.
- Always wear protective eyewear when using tools.
- • Choose a state mounting location, away from moisture. Check clearances on both sides of a planned mounting surface.
- Be sure that screws or vAres will not puncture brake lines. fuel lines. or wiring harnesses and that wire routing does not interfere with the safe vehicle operation. Use caution when drilling or cutting in the mounting area.
- Choose a location that provides enough air circulation.
- Do not mount the amplifier with the heat sink facing downward, as this interferes with cooling.
- Mount the amplifier so that it will not be damaged by the feet of backseat passengers or shifting cargo in the trunk.
WIRING FOR POWER AND GROUND
At ground location
WIRING FOR INPUT SIGNAL
Note: When using low-level signa’.s and remote tum-on lead, set the “TURN-ON MODE” switch to “REM’ and the ‘ INPUT LEVEL switch to ‘LO’.
Note: when using high-level signals, set the ‘TURN-ON MODE” svhtc1 to ‘DC’ and the “INPUT LEVEL” switch to ‘HI1″. If no sound plays, change the ‘1NPUT LEVEL” switch to “Hl2”.
CONNECTING TWO CLUB A1000 AMPLIFIERS FOR EXTRA POWER
To connect two Club A1000 amplifiers, use an RCA patch cable to connect the “PRIMARY OUT of the primary amplifier to the “SECONDARY IN” of the secondary amplifier Set the Primary/ Secondary switch to PRIMARY” on the primary amplifier, and to SECONDARY on the secondary amplifier.
WIRING FOR AUDIO OUTPUT
One subwoofer ( 4ohm/2ohm )
Two subwoofers ( 4ohm )
CONNECTING THE REMOTE BASS CONTROLLER
SETTING GAIN, CROSSOVERS, AND BASS BOOST
Setting the gain
- Start with GAIN control set to a minimum, and the crossover control rotated midway.
- Choose music with substantial bass Content.
- Turn the volume control on your receiver to 34 of its total output.
- Adjust the GAIN control clockwise listening carefully to the bass output. If you hear distortion, turn the GAIN control counterclockwise to decrease the gain.
Selecting the crossover frequency
Choose the crossover point to suit listening preferences. Turn the dials to the left to lower the crossover point and to the right to raise the crossover point. The exact crossover settings depend on your listening preferences.
Selecting the subwoofer phase
- Switch the PHASE back and forth to determine which setting provides the cleanest bass output.
Selecting the bass boost
- Adjust the BASS-BOOST control clockwise or counterclockwise to suit your taste.
No audio and the POWER INDICATOR is off
- No voltage ai BATT+ and/or REM tem1inals, or bad or no ground connection. Check voltages at amp[ttier terminals with VOM.
No audio and PROTECT INDICATOR flashes every 4 seconds
- DC Vonage on amplifier output. The amplifier may need service see the enclosed warranty card for service information.
No audio and PROTECT and POWER INDICATORS flash
- Voltage less than 9V on BATT – connection. Check vehicle charging system.
No audio and PROTECT INDICATOR is on
- The amplifier is overheated. Make sure amplifier cooling is not blocked at the mounting location. Or, there may be a cottage greater than 16V (or less than 8.51/) on a BATT+ connection. Check vehicle charging system.
The amplifier fuse keeps blowing
- The wiring is connected incorrectly or there is a shore circuit. Check wiring connections.
- Gain Is Not Set Properly. Check Setting. Check Wire.
- For Shorts Or Grounds. Amplifier Or Source Unit May Be Defective.
Distorted audio and PROTECT INDICATOR flashes
- Short circuit in speaker or wire. Remove speaker leads one at a time to locate shorted speaker or wire, and repair it.
Music lacks dynamics or “punch”
- Speakers are not connected properly. Check speaker oonnections for proper polarity.
Engine noise-whining or clicking- in the system when the engine is on
The amplifier is picking up alternator noise. First, check the ground connection on the amplifier – loose or improper ground is one of the main causes of noise. Tum down gain. Move RCA aud·o cables away from power wires. Installing an alternator noise finer on the power line between battery and alternator might also be necessary.
