Before Using This Product
Thank you for purchasing this PIONEER
product. Before attempting operation, be
sure to read this manual.
In case of trouble
When the unit does not operate properly,
contact your dealer or the nearest autho-
rized PIONEER Service Station.
WARNING
• Always use the special red battery and ground
wires ([RD-223] × 2), which are sold separately.
Connect the battery wire directly to the car battery
positive terminal (+) and the ground wire to the
car body.
• Do not touch the amplifier with wet hands.
Otherwise you may get an electric shock. Also, do
not touch the amplifier when it is wet.
• For traffic safety and to maintain safe driving
conditions, keep the volume low enough so that
you can still hear normal traffic sound.
• Check the connections of the power supply and
speakers if the fuse of the separately sold battery
wire or the amplifier fuse blows. Detect the cause
and solve the problem, then replace the fuse with
another one of the same size and rating.
• To prevent malfunction of the amplifier and
speakers, the protective circuit will cut the power
supply to the amplifier (sound will stop) when an
abnormal condition occurs. In such a case, switch
the power to the system OFF and check the
connection of the power supply and speakers.
Detect the cause and solve the problem.
• Contact the dealer if you cannot detect the cause.
• To prevent an electric shock or short-circuit
during connection and installation, be sure to
disconnect the negative (–) terminal of the battery
beforehand.
• Confirm that no parts are behind the panel when
drilling a hole for installation of the amplifier. Be
sure to protect all cables and important equipment
such as fuel lines, brake lines and the electrical
wiring from damage.
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" posi-
tion. If the output is low, even when the
volume of the car stereo is turned up,
turn these controls clockwise. If there is
distortion 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.
Cut Off Frequency Control
Combining LPF/HPF/BPF and
LOW/HIGH select switch settings lets
you select between cut off frequencies
from 40 to 120 Hz and 3k to 9k Hz.

Power Indicator

BFC (Beat Frequency Control) Switch
If you hear a beat while listening to an

standard tip screwdriver.
LPF (Low-Pass Filter)/HPF (High-Pass Filter)/BPF (Band-Pass Filter) and
LOW/HIGH Select Switch
