Summary of Content
SBP8A INSTALLATION/OWNER'S MANUAL 8" Bandpass Enclosure with Built-in Amplifier SBP8A PREPARATION Getting Started Thank you for purchasing the Dual SBP8A 8" Bandpass 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 SBP8A 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 SBP8A. Suggested locations include behind a seat or in the trunk. • The SBP8A can be mounted horizontal (recommended) or vertical. For optimum performance, make sure to provide at least 1" of space around all sides of the amplifier. • Do not mount the SBP8A under carpets or where airflow is restricted. • Do not install the SBP8A 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 SBP8A INSTALLATION ! Safety First CAUTION The following instructions are designed to ensure safety during installation and use of the SBP8A. 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. For safety, disconnect the battery negative terminal prior to beginning the installation. 3. If additional wiring is required, we recommend running all wires prior to mounting your bandpass enclosure in place. 4. To ensure reliable performance and minimize signal or power loss, use the highest quality connectors available. 5. Use caution before you drill or cut! Be careful not to cut or drill into gas tanks, fuel lines, brake or hydraulic lines, vacuum lines or electrical wiring when working on any vehicle. 6. Never run speaker wires underneath your vehicle. Running speaker wires inside the vehicle provides the best protection from exhaust, heat and environmental elements. 7. 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. 8. When running the speaker cable to the amplifier, avoid running it near sources of high current (i.e. wiring harnesses, battery cables). 3 SBP8A 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 (BAT+) • 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 BAT+ 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 BAT+ 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) or high level (speaker wire) outputs. • Dedicated subwoofer or low level inputs signal deliver the best performance. If unavailable, use the high level inputs - when interfacing with factory head unit for instance. Be sure to observe the correct polarity when using the high level inputs. CAUTION • Do not use both low and high level inputs at the same time - connect only one or the other. • Never run any wires underneath or outside the vehicle. 4 SBP8A INSTALLATION Connections and Controls 1 2 3 8 7 4 6 5 1 Crossover Frequency 5 Power Connections 2 Phase Control 6 Fuse 3 Input Level Control 7 Low Level Inputs 4 High Level Inputs 8 LED Indicator 5 SBP8A INSTALLATION Typical Wire Routing BAT+ (BATTERY) 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 SBP8A uses (1) 7.5 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. SBP8A INSTALLATION Setup and Adjustment of Controls Input Signal Connections Low Level (RCA) 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. High Level Input  High level inputs should only be used when RCA (Speaker Wire) outputs are not available from the head unit. Connect the head unit speaker outputs to the high level input connector shown on page 6. Do not use both low and high level inputs at the same time - connect only one or the other. Crossover Frequency Control Phase Control Input Level Control LED Indicator The adjustable crossover is used to filter out frequencies above 70Hz ~ 200Hz. Adjust it to where the SBP8A sound output blends with the rest of the sound system. The phase control compensates for delay between the SBP8A 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. 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. The LED indicator illuminates blue during normal operation. 7 SBP8A INSTALLATION Troubleshooting Problem Cause Unit will not turn on (no power LED indicator) BAT+ wire not connected or incorrect voltage REM wire not connected or incorrect voltage Check connections for proper voltage (11~16VDC) GND wire not connected Check connection to ground Fuse(s) blown Replace fuse(s) Volume turned all the way down Increase volume level at head unit Speaker defective or damaged Check/replace speaker Input signal not connected Check high or low level inputs for proper connection Unit has power - LED is blue (but no sound) Unit blows fuse(s) Incorrect fuse rating Use fuse(s) with correct rating BAT+ wire touching chassis ground Check for pinched wire Speaker defective or damaged Check/replace speaker Bad ground connection Make sure amplifier is grounded to clean bare metal Signal ground loop or RFI (radio frequency interference) Re-route RCA cables from existing high current wiring Distorted audio output Incorrect input signal type or input level too high Check connections and reduce/adjust input level Low audio output Incorrect input signal type or input level too low Check connections and increase or adjust input level Low frequency output is out of phase Adjust phase control as needed Engine noise Weak bass 8 Action SBP8A WARRANTY Limited One Year Warranty This warranty gives you specific legal rights.
