Setting the Unit
Gain Control
Adjusting the gain controls A and B will
help match the output of the car stereo to
the Pioneer amplifier. Normally, set the
gain controls to the NORMAL position.
If the output is low, even when the vol-
ume of the car stereo is turned up, turn
these controls clockwise. If there is dis-
tortion when the volume of the car stereo
is turned up, turn these controls counter-
clockwise.
• If you only use one input plug, set the gain
controls for speaker outputs A and B to the
same position.
• When using with an RCA equipped car
stereo (standard output of 500 mV), set to
the NORMAL position. When using with
an RCA equipped Pioneer car stereo with
max. output of 4 V or more, adjust level to
match the car stereo output level.
Input Select Switch
For two-channel input, slide this switch
to the left. For four-channel input, slide
this switch to the right.
Power Indicator
The power indicator lights when the
power is switched on.
BFC (Beat Frequency Control) Switch
If you hear a beat while listening to an
AM broadcast with your car stereo,
change the BFC switch using a small
standard tip screwdriver.
LPF (Low-Pass Filter)/HPF (High-Pass Filter) Select Switch
Set the LPF/HPF select switch as follows according to the type of speaker that is connected
to the speaker output connector and the car stereo system:
