Summary of Content
DPA250 INSTALLATION/OWNER’S MANUAL Mobile Power Amplifier DPA250 INSTALLATION Preparation Please read entire manual before installation. Due to the technical nature of amplifiers, it is highly recommended that your DUAL amplifier is installed by a professional installer or an authorized dealer. Before You Start • Disconnect negative battery terminal. (consult a qualified technician for instructions) • 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 amplifier. Suggested locations include under a seat or in the trunk. • The amplifier can be mounted horizontal (recommended) or vertical. For optimum performance, make sure to provide at least 1" of space to around all sides. Do not mount the amplifier under carpets or where airflow is restricted. • Do not install the amplifier 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. TYPICAL MOUNTING METHOD 2 DPA250 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 power antenna output. Speaker Wires • Choose adequate gauge speaker wire depending on your exact amplifier/speaker combination. Be sure to observe polarity when connecting. • Do not ground any speaker wires or connect any speaker wires together. 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. 3 DPA250 INSTALLATION Connections and Control Locations 1 8 4 9 2 10 3 4 5 11 6 7 12 1 RCA Line Inputs 8 Ground Connection 2 Gain Control 9 Remote Connection 3 Crossover Frequency Control 10 +12VDC Battery Connection 4 Crossover Mode 11 Fuse 5 Bass Boost 12 Speaker Connections 6 Treble Boost 7 Power/Protect LEDs DPA250 INSTALLATION Typical Wire Routing Main Power Connections Connect +12V, GND and REM wires accordingly. A suitable fuse MUST be installed on the +12V lead within 18" of the battery for protection of the vehicle’s electrical system. Fuse Rating Power/Ground Wire Size When replacing the fuse, make sure new fuse is the correct type and amperage. Using an incorrect fuse could damage the amplifier. For optimum performance, use only the wire size listed below or larger. Make sure to use the same size power and ground wire. DPA250 15 amp ATO x 1 DPA250 10 awg 5 DPA250 INSTALLATION Amplifier Connections 2 Speakers (stereo) Subwoofer (mono) Typical Stereo Wiring Typical Bridged Wiring Speaker Connections Connect speaker wires observing polarity. The minimum impedance load is 2 ohms stereo and 4 ohms bridged. Use of loads lower than these is not recommended and may cause amplifier damage. The DPA250 can be wired for stereo, bridged or stereo/bridged simultaneous operation. (2 ohms minimum) (4 ohms minimum) Input Signal Connections Low Level Input (RCA) Low level (RCA) input signal is preferred for best performance. If your head unit does not include low level (RCA) outputs, an optional high-to-low adapter may be required (sold separately). Typical trunk-mount amplifier installations require a 17-20 foot RCA cable. Most trucks and under-seat applications require a 6-9 foot RCA cable. Using twisted pair construction RCA cables will minimize noise. 6 DPA250 INSTALLATION Configuration/Setup Input level Control Crossover Mode The input level control (gain) 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. Repeat for all input level controls. The crossover is used to filter out frequencies above or below a certain point. Choose LPF when using the amplifier with subwoofers, or FULL when using with coaxial-type speakers. Note: Choose FULL when using the amplifier in stereo/ bridged simultaneous mode. In this mode, passive crossovers are required. Failure to use the correct passive components may damage the amplifier and/or speakers. Consult a qualified professional for recommendations. Crossover Frequency Control This control allows precise adjustment of the crossover frequency from 50Hz ~ 300Hz. Bass Boost This control provides additional boost @ 45Hz when used with subwoofers. Adjust this control with caution - as improper use can damage speakers! Treble Boost This control provides additional boost @ 5kHz when used with subwoofers. Adjust this control with caution - as improper use can damage speakers! LED Indicators The POWER LED indicator illuminates green during normal operation. The PROTECT LED indicator illuminates red when the amplifier detects a fault. 7 DPA250 WARRANTY Limited One-Year Warranty This warranty gives you specific legal rights.
