Do not install the unit under the floor carpet,
where the heat dissipation from the unit will be
considerably impaired.
Mounting the unit
Prepare a mounting board that is thicker than 20
mm (

Connections
Before making any connections, disconnect the
ground (earth) terminal of the car battery to avoid
short circuits.
If your car is equipped with a computer system for
navigation or some other purpose, disconnecting
the ground (earth) wire from the car battery may
damage the computer memory. Leaving the
ground (earth) wire connected and disconnecting
the +12 V power supply wire until all the other
wires have been connected may prevent short
circuits.
Be sure to use speakers with an adequate power
rating. If you use small capacity speakers, they
may be damaged.
Do not connect the
terminal of the speaker
system to the car chassis, and do not connect the
terminal of the right speaker with that of the
left speaker.
Install the input and output cords away from the
power supply wire. Running them close together
may generate interference noise.
