Summary of Content
ALB10 INSTALLATION/OWNER'S MANUAL 10" Ported Enclosure with Built-in Amplifier PREPARATION Getting Started Thank you for purchasing the Dual ALB10 10" ported enclosure with built-in amplifier. Although Dual has attempted to ensure the information in this manual is accurate, please be aware that any part of it is subject to change without notice. Please read entire manual before installation. Due to the technical nature of amplifiers, it is highly recommended that your Dual ALB10 is installed by a professional installer or an authorized dealer. Before You Start • Always disconnect the negative battery terminal. Consult a qualified technician for instructions if you are unsure. • Avoid installing the amplifier where it would be subject to high temperatures, such as from direct sunlight, or where it would be subject to dust, dirt or excessive vibration. • Use extreme caution when drilling holes to avoid damaging fuel lines or existing vehicle wiring. • All amplifier installations require power, signal and speaker wires (not included). • An amplifier installation kit (sold separately) is highly recommended to facilitate the installation. Consult your dealer for recommendations. Mounting Location • Choose a mounting location for the ALB10. Suggested locations include behind a seat or in the trunk. • For optimum performance, make sure to provide at least 1" of space around all sides of the amplifier. • Do not mount the ALB10 under carpets or where airflow is restricted. • Do not install the ALB10 where it may be exposed to moisture. • The optimum mounting location varies between vehicles. Remember to test all amplifier functions before completing the final mounting procedure. 2 INSTALLATION Safety First ! CAUTION The following instructions are designed to ensure safety during installation and use of the ALB10. Failure to heed these instructions can result in injury or damage to the unit or vehicle. The following installation instructions are intended to be used as a basic guideline. If you feel unsure about installing this speaker system yourself, Dual recommends acquiring the services of a professional car audio installation center. Before installation, please review the following guidelines: 1. Be sure to carefully read and understand the instructions before attempting to install this product. 2. If additional wiring is required, we recommend running all wires prior to mounting your enclosure in place. 3. To ensure reliable performance and minimize signal or power loss, use the highest quality connectors available. 4. Never run speaker wires underneath your vehicle. Running speaker wires inside the vehicle provides the best protection from exhaust, heat and environmental elements. 5. Avoid running wires over, near or through sharp-edged surfaces. We suggest you also use rubber grommets to protect any wires routed through metal, especially the firewall. 6. When running the speaker cable to the amplifier, avoid running it near sources of high current (i.e. wiring harnesses, battery cables). 3 INSTALLATION Connection Descriptions Note: Be sure to follow specific instructions included with your amplifier installation kit (not included with this amplifier). The information below should be used a general guideline only. Power Wire (+12V) • Disconnect negative battery terminal before proceeding. Consult a qualified technician for instructions if you are unsure. • Plan wire routing before cutting any wires to length. Begin by routing the power +12V wire from the battery to the amplifier location. Use a grommet when running wires through the firewall or metal openings. Avoid running the power wire near existing vehicle wiring to prevent induced noise from entering the audio system. • Use extreme caution when drilling holes to avoid damaging fuel lines or existing vehicle wiring. • The +12V wire MUST be fused within 18" of the battery for protection of the vehicle’s electrical system. Ground Wire (GND) • The amplifier ground wire should be as short as possible. Choose a clean unpainted section of metal or the vehicle chassis when attaching the ground connection. Be sure to clean the area of any dirt or grease. Remote Turn-on Wire (REM) • The remote turn-on wire connects to the head unit's amplifier turn-on lead or other switched 12 volt source. Input Signal • The amplifier's input signal connects to the head unit's low level (RCA) outputs. CAUTION • Never run any wires underneath or outside the vehicle. 4 INSTALLATION Connections and Controls 1 2 HIGH LEVEL INPUT 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 15A 11 1 Hi-Level Inputs 7 Power Indicator 2 Line In (Left) 8 Ground Connection 3 Line In (Right) 9 Remote Connection 4 Crossover Frequency 10 Power Connection 5 Input Level Control 11 Fuse (15A) 6 Phase Control 5 INSTALLATION Typical Wire Routing 18” MAXIMUM BATTERY HIGH LEVEL INPUT (SPEAKER WIRE) HIGH LEVEL INPUT 15A High Level Input (Speaker Wire) High level inputs should only be used when RCA outputs are not available from the head unit. Connect the head unit speaker outputs to the high level input connector as shown below. The black wire (signal reference ground) may or may not require a connection to chassis ground - depending on your particular installation. Do not use both low and high level inputs at the same time. Connect only one or the other. Grey = Right (+) Grey/Black = Right (-) Black = Ground White/Black = Left (-) White = Left (+) HI-LEVEL INPUT CONNECTION Main Power Connections Connect BAT+, GND and REM wires accordingly. A suitable fuse MUST be installed on the BAT+ lead within 18" of the battery for protection of the vehicle’s electrical system. Fuse Rating When replacing the fuse, make sure new fuse is the correct type and amperage. Using an incorrect fuse could damage the amplifier. The ALB10 uses (1) 15 amp ATO style fuse. 6 Power/Ground Wire Size For optimum performance, use only 12 gauge wire or larger. Make sure to use the same size power and ground wire. INSTALLATION Mounting Step 1 Install ALB10 in place on the mounting base by screwing the mounting brackets securely on the bottom of the trunk in your car as illustrated. Step 2 Lace straps so that they pass through the brackets mounted on the base. Step 3 Place the ALB10 on the brackets. Step 4 Lace straps through buckles. Step 5 Fasten buckles as tightly as possible. Front view of proper installation Back view of proper installation 7 INSTALLATION Control Setup and Adjustment Input Signal Connections Low Level (RCA) Crossover Frequency Control Phase Control 8 Low level (RCA) input signal is preferred for best performance. Typical trunk-mount installations require a 17-20 foot RCA cable. Most trucks and behind-seat applications require a 6-12 foot RCA cable. Using twisted pair construction RCA cables will minimize noise. The adjustable crossover is used to filter out frequencies above 40Hz ~ 160Hz. Adjust it to where the ALB10 sound output blends with the rest of the sound system. The phase control compensates for delay between the ALB10 output and the rest of the sound system. Begin with the phase control set to 0 degrees. If the sound is adequate from the normal listening position inside the vehicle, no further adjustment is necessary. If the sound is thin or lacking bass, adjust the phase control until the bass is full and punchy. Input Level Control The input level control (LEVEL) is used to obtain the best possible match between the head unit audio output and the amplifier input. Begin by turning the input level control fully counterclockwise. Next, turn up the head unit volume control around 3/4 of the way up. Adjust the input level control clockwise until audible distortion is heard, then slightly counterclockwise to provide the best match. LED Indicator The LED indicator illuminates green during normal operation. WARRANTY Limited One-Year Warranty This warranty gives you specific legal rights.
