Pyle PLUTV42CH 800W Speakers Manual
- This unit is designed for negative ground 12-14.50 Volts (DC) operation only.
- Use speakers with an impedance of 4 Ohms
- Avoid installing the unit where:
- It would be subject to high temperatures, such as from direct sunlight or hot air from the heater.
- It would be exposed to rain or moisture.
- It would be subject to dust or dirt.
- If your vehicle or boat is parked in direct sunlight and there is a considerable rise in temperature inside the car, allow the unit to cool oﬀ before operation.
- When installing the unit horizontally, be sure not to cover the heatsink fins with the floor carpet.
- If this unit is placed too close to the resources radio, interference may occur. In this case, separate the amplifier from the car radio.
- This power amplifier employs a protection circuit to protect the transistors and speakers if the amplifier malfunctions. Do not attempt to test the protection circuits by covering the heatsink or connecting improper loads.
- Do not use the unit with a weak auto battery as its optimum performance depends on a normal battery supply voltage.
- For safety reasons, keep the volume of your audio system moderate so that you can still hear normal traﬃc sounds at a reasonable distance.
The battery terminal (BATT ) must be connected directly to the positive terminal of the vehicle battery to provide an adequate voltage source and minimize noise. Connecting the battery terminal lead to any other point (such as the fuse block) will reduce the power output and may cause noise and distortion. Use only #12 gauge or thicker (smaller gauge #) wire for this lead and connect it to the terminal of the battery after all other wiring is completed.
The ground terminal (GND) connection is also critical to the correct operation of the amplifier. Use a wire of the same gauge as the power connection (#8 or thicker) and connect it between the ground terminal (GND) of the amplifier and a metal part of the vehicle close to the mounting location. This wire should be as short as possible and any paint or rust at the grounding point should be scraped away to provide a clean metal surface to which the end of the ground wire can be screwed or bolted.
REMOTE TURN-ON CONNECTION
The amplifier is turned on by applying +12V to the remote turn-on terminal (REM). The wire leads to this terminal should be connected to the “Auto-Antenna” lead from the vehicle/or boat stereo resources which will provide the +12V only when the stereo resources are turned on. If the car stereo does not provide an “Auto-An-tenna” lead, the remote turn-on lead may be wired to an “Accessory” or “Radio” terminal in the vehicle’s/or boat’s fuse block. This will turn the amplifier on and oﬀ with the ignition key, regardless of whether the stereo resources are on or oﬀ. The remote turn-on lead does not carry large currents. So #16 gauge wire may be used for this application.
Depending on the type and number of speakers used with the amplifier wire them to the speaker terminals as per the appropriate wiring diagram. For most applications, #18 gauge wire should be used for the speaker leads but in no case thinner than #16 gauge. For leads, an excess of 10 feet #12 gauge is recommended. When wiring the speakers, pay careful attention to the polarity of the terminals on the speakers and make certain they correspond to the polarity of the corresponding terminals on the amplifier. Do not ground any speaker leads to the chassis of the vehicle/or boat.
After the amplifier has been installed and all connections have been made carefully and securely, turn the radio on so that the amplifier is switched on automatically. After a short power-on period, the amplifier reaches its full performance. Now turn up the volume slowly using the volume control of the radio. If there is no sound or only a distorted replay, switch oﬀ the radio immediately – the amplifier will also switch oﬀ automatically – and check if all connections have been made correctly.
GND (-) = GROUND CONNECTION
Connect the GND terminal to the chassis ground of your vehicle/or boat and take care of the best electric and mechanic contact. In doing so, drill a hole into the vehicle/or boat chassis near the amplifier then remove color, dirt, or any other substance from the ground point. Thereafter fasten the cable end with added ring terminal by using a screw. Ensure that the ground connection is as short as possible and that the cable diameter is suﬃcient (min 4mm). Route the ground cables from the radio and all other equipment parts, like equalizer, active crossover network, or other amplifiers, to the same ground point.
+ 12V = POWER SUPPLY
Connect the BATT terminal to the positive pole of the battery with a lead cable and add a fuse into the power cable at a distance of not more than 30 cm from the battery. The lead cable’s diameter should be at least 4 mm for a length of 3m and 6mm” for a length of 6m.
REM (ON/OFF) REMOTE CONTROL
Connect the REM terminal to the automatic antenna connector of your vehicle/or boat radio. Now when turning on and oﬀ your vehicle/or boat radio, the amplifier automatically switches ON and OFF. A cable diameter of 0.5mm2 is suﬃcient.
NOTES ON THE POWER SUPPLY
- Connect the +12V power input lead only after all other leads have been connected.
- Be sure to connect the ground wire of the unit securely to a metal part of the vehicle/or boat.
- A loose or faulty connection may cause amplifier malfunction
- REM: The unit is turned on by applying +12 Volts to this terminal. This terminal does not draw heavy currents like the two Power Terminals so a thinner connecting wire is acceptable. Standard 18 GAUGE is fine and the standard color is red. If the radio is equipped with a Power Antenna control wire, it can drive this terminal. If the Power Antenna wire is already in use, you can still splice it into it. With this method, the unit will turn ON automatically with the radio.
- Use the power supply lead with a fuse attached whose value is the same as the original fuse.
- Place the fuse in the power supply lead as close as possible to the car battery.
- During a full-power operation, a Maximum current will run through the system. Therefore, make sure that the leads to be connected to the +12V and GND terminals of the unit respectively must be larger than 18-Gauge (AWG.18) proper Bridged operation. If only a mono signal is available, a “Y” adapter is required. FUSE REPLACEMENT
If the fuse blows, check the power connection and replace the fuse. If the fuse blows again after replacement, there may be an internal malfunction. In this case, consult your dealer.
- Use the specified amperage fuse. The use of a higher amperage fuse may cause serious damage.
This amplifier is provided with a protection circuit that operates in the following cases when:
- the unit is overheated.
- the speaker terminals are short-circuited.
HOW TO PROCEED IN CASE OF FAULTS
The connection cable is not connected correctly (=terminal +12V/GND/REM). Ensure that all connections and mechanic contact and that the jacket has been removed. The fuse is defective-pay attention to the correct value of a new fuse!
- The speaker cable or speaker plug is not connected correctly.
- The plus and minus wires of the speaker cable have contact, thus eliminating the short circuit. If you use Pay attention only a 4-ohm load speaker is allowed. No 2 ohm or less impedance speaker connection is allowed.
Poor Sound Quality (Distortions)
- If the speakers are overloaded, therefore turn down the volume level and check the volume control positions. No Stereo Sound And A Weak Bass:
- Speaker cables (+) and (-) are mixed up, the unit is wired out of phase.
All cables can source and create interference. The power cable and Cinch/RCA audio cable are very prone to interference; the remote cables are less prone. There is often interference caused by the generator (piping), ignition (cracking), or another vehicle/or boat electronic parts. Most of these problems can be eliminated by correct and careful cabling. In doing so, here are the following guidelines:
- Use only a screened audio cable for the wiring between the “low level in” of the amplifier and the RCA or DIN output of the radio.
- Lay the signal, speaker, and power cables separately with enough distance from one another and also from each other car cable. If not possible, you can lay the circuit and ground cable together with the serial cables. Audio and speaker cables should be as far away from these as possible. The REM cable to the automatic antenna output of the radio can be laid together with the signal cables.
- Avoid ground loops by laying the ground wiring of all components to a center point in a star-like way. you can find the best central point in measuring the voltage directly at the battery. Now compare this voltage value with the chosen ground point and the (+) terminal of the amplifier. If the measured voltage is only slightly diﬀerent, you’ve found the correct central. Otherwise, you have to look for another point. You should measure with the ignition point for the earth being switched on and additionally switched on consumers (rear window heating and light).
