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.
