If you experience difficulty in operating this product, pull over, park your vehicle in a safe location and apply the handbrake before making the necessary adjustments. • Do not install this product where it may (i) obstruct the driver’s vision, (ii) impair the performance of any of the vehicle’s operating systems of safety features, including airbags, hazard lamp buttons, or (iii) impair the driver’s ability to safely operate the vehicle. In some cases, it may not be possible to install this product because of the vehicle type or the shape of the vehicle interior. • Model icons shown in this manual indicate that the description is intended for the models indicated by the icons. If the following icon is shown, the description is applied only to the model shown. e.g.) A000VBT WARNING Pioneer does not recommend that you install this product yourself. This product is designed for professional installation only. We recommend that only authorised Pioneer service personnel, who have special training and experience in mobile electronics, set up and install this product. NEVER SERVICE THIS PRODUCT YOURSELF. Installing or servicing this product and its connecting cables may expose you to the risk of electric shock or other hazards, and can cause damage to this product that is not covered by warranty. 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 • 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 2 En 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 damaged, resulting in a short circuit or malfunction and permanent damage to the product. • 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 • When speaker output is used by 4 channels , use speakers over 50 W (Maximum input power) and between 4 Ω to 8 Ω (impedance value). Do not use 1 Ω to 3 Ω speakers for this unit. • When rear speaker output is used by 2 Ω of subwoofer, use speakers over 70 W (Maximum input power). *Please refer to connection for a connection method. • The black lead is earth. Please earth this lead separately from the earth of high current 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. • 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.
