Connection Precautions before connecting the system WARNING Do not take any steps to tamper with or disable the handbrake interlock system which is in place for your protection. Tampering with or disabling the handbrake interlock system could result in serious injury or death. CAUTION • If you decide to perform the installation yourself, and have special training and experience in the mobile electronics installations, please carefully follow all of the steps in the installation manual. • Secure all wiring with cable clamps or electrical tape. Do not allow any bare wiring to remain exposed. • Do not directly connect the yellow lead of this product to the vehicle battery. If the lead is directly connected to the battery, engine vibration may eventually cause the insulation to fail at the point where the wire passes from the passenger compartment into the engine compartment. If the yellow lead’s insulation tears as a result of contact with metal parts, short-circuiting can occur, resulting in considerable danger. • It is extremely dangerous to allow cables to become wound around the steering column or gearstick. Be sure to install this product, its cables, and wiring away in such so that they will not obstruct or hinder driving. • Make sure that the cables and wires will not interfere with or become caught in any of the vehicle’s moving parts, especially the steering wheel, gearstick, handbrake, sliding seat tracks, doors, or any of the vehicle’s controls. • Do not route wires where they will be exposed to high temperatures. If the insulation heats up, wires may become 4 En damaged, resulting in a short circuit or malfunction and permanent damage to the product. • Do not cut the GPS aerial cable to shorten it or use an extension to make it longer. Altering the aerial cable could result in a short circuit or malfunction. • Do not shorten any leads. If you do, the protection circuit (fuse holder, fuse resistor or filter, etc.) may fail to work properly. • Never feed power to other electronic products by cutting the insulation of the power supply lead of this product and tapping into the lead. The current capacity of the lead will be exceeded, causing overheating. Before installing this product • Use this product with a 12-volt battery and negative earthing only. Failure to do so may result in a fire or malfunction. • To avoid shorts in the electrical system, be sure to disconnect the (–) battery cable before installation. To prevent damage WARNING • Use speakers over 50 W (maximum input power) and between 4Ω to 8Ω (impedance value). Do not use 1Ω to 3Ω speakers for this product. • The black lead is earth. Please earth this lead separately from the earth of highcurrent products such as power amps. Do not earth more than one product together with the earth from another product. For example, you must separately earth any amp unit away from the earth of this product. Connecting earths together can cause a fire and/or damage the products if their earths became detached. • When replacing the fuse, be sure to only use a fuse of the rating prescribed on this product. ––When disconnecting a connector, pull the connector itself. Do not pull the lead, as you may pull it out of the connector. ––This product cannot be installed in a vehicle without ACC (accessory) position on the ignition switch. ACC position No ACC position • To avoid short-circuiting, cover the disconnected lead with insulating tape. It is especially important to insulate all unused speaker leads, which if left uncovered may cause a short circuit. • Attach the connectors of the same colour to the corresponding coloured port, i.e., blue connector to the blue port, black to black, etc. • Refer to the owner’s manual for details on connecting the power amp and other units, then make connections accordingly. • Since a unique BPTL circuit is employed, do not directly earth the side of the speaker lead or connect the side of another side of the speaker lead together. Be sure to connect the side of the speaker lead to the side of the speaker lead on this product. Notice for the blue/white lead Important When this product is in “Power OFF” mode, the control signal is also turned off. If “Power OFF” mode is cancelled, the control signal is output again and the aerial is extended with the auto aerial function (if the aerial is being used). Be careful so that the extended aerial does not come into contact with any obstacles. • When the ignition switch is turned on (ACC ON), a control signal is output through the blue/white lead. Connect to an external power amp’s system remote control terminal, the auto-aerial relay control terminal, or the aerial booster power control terminal (max. 300mA 12 V DC). The control signal is output through the blue/white lead, even if the audio source is switched off. • Be sure not to use this lead as the power supply lead for the external power amps. Such connection could cause excessive current drain and malfunction. • Be sure not to use this lead as the power supply lead for the auto-aerial or aerial booster. Such connection could cause excessive current drain and malfunction.
