INTRODUCTIONThis instruction manual is for your safety and must be adhered to at all times. Please read and ensure that you fully understand the installation and set up procedures as explained. If you are unclear on the installation or set up of your EDGE speakers please contact your nearest authorised EDGE dealer.

WARNINGDO NOT EXPOSE THIS PRODUCT TO DAMP OR MOISTURE - doing so may result in fire,

shock or damage to the product.BEFORE WIRING DISCONNECT THE CABLE FROM THE POSITIVE BATTERY TERMINAL -

failure to do so may result in electric shock or injury.ENSURE GOOD AND CORRECT CONNECTIONS - failure to make the correct connections

may result in fire or damage to the product.DO NOT USE ANY FUNCTIONS OF THIS EQUIPMENT THAT MAY TAKE YOUR

CONCENTRATION AWAY FROM DRIVING YOUR VEHICLE - do not set up your amplifier whilst driving, doing so may result in an accident. For prolonged setting up, make sure that

your vehicle is stationary and in a safe location.KEEP THE VOLUME AT A LEVEL SO YOU CAN STILL HEAR OUTSIDE NOISE - failure to do this may result in an accident. EDGE equipment is capable of producing sound levels that can permanently damage your hearing. EDGE recommends caution when listening at high volume. For safe and enjoyable listening the sound should be comfortable and clear without distortion.

CAUTIONNever connect any speaker lead to the car chassis. This can cause severe damage to your

speaker /car radio /amplifier.Before drilling or cutting any holes, investigate the layout of your vehicle thoroughly.

Use caution when working near the fuel / hydraulic lines and electrical wiring.Observe the correct polarity when wiring, improper phasing may cause a loss of bass

response.Ensure that no moving parts catch on the speaker or grill (e.g. window or door handles, or

window glass inside the door)

Mounting Guidelines

Your EDGE amplifier is designed with a swift installation routine in mind. Please mount the amplifier in a dry location on a solid surface. NEVER mount the amplifier upside down, this will cause the amplifier to over heat and will eventually damage the amplifier. Before fixing the amplifier in place please ensure that there is sufficient air flow around the exterior of the casing, at least two inches is sufficient.

Connections

Power / Ground Cable● The correct gauge cable should be used for both the power and the ground connections to the amplifier. ● The power cable should be taken directly from the battery. Rubber grommets should be used when passing through any bulkheads to prevent the cable from becoming chaffed or cut. ● The correct size of fuse must be fitted within 18” of the battery and before the cable passes through the bulk head● It is vital that a fuse / circuit breaker (of at least equal value to the one fitted on the amplifier) is placed inline with the power cable and is no further than eighteen inches away from the battery. ● Please ensure that the fuse is not fitted until the entire installation procedure is complete. ● The two tables below are to help you decide on what cable is correct for you. The first enables you to select the size of cable depending on the length required. The second will help you convert the cable size from American Wire Gauge to Metric if you need to.● The amplifier ground should be connected directly to the chassis of the vehicle, to bare metal. ● The cable length should be kept to an absolute minimum.

ED7400● Minimum 10 AWG power / ground cable should be used

ED7800 / 71200 / 71600● Minimum 8 AWG power / ground cable should be used

ED72500● Minimum 4 AWG power / ground cable should be used

Remote Turn On

● A minimum of 18 gauge cable should be used for this connection. ● The cable should be run with exactly the same care and attention as the power cable and taken back to the source (headunit) and joined to the remote cable provided. ● If the source (headunit) does not have a remote turn on cable then a 12v supply should be used. This will require a switch to be fitted inline to enable the amplifier to be turned on and off. Remember that if this switch is left on you will flatten the car battery.

RCA Cables

● Depending on the model number of your amplifier and the number of speakers you wish to power you will have to run either one or two RCA cables from the source to the amplifier. ● Please take extra care when running these cables from the source to the amplifier. Ensure that they are placed away from all items that can generate any interference, wiring harnesses etc. ● It is recommended that the RCA cables should be run on opposite sides of the car to the previously installed power cables if possible, to avoid the cable picking up interference.

Troubleshooting

● Before removing the amplifier, refer to the list below and follow the suggested procedures. ● Always test the speakers and confirm that they are wired correctly first. ● If in any doubt get help from a qualified auto electrician.

Amplifier Will Not Power Up● Check for good ground connections. Ensure Ground cable is connected directly to bare metal and not a painted surface. ● Using a multimeter check that remote terminal has at least 10V DC.● Using a multi meter check that there is battery voltage on the positive terminal.● Check all fuses.● Check that the protection light is not illuminated. If it is lit, shut off the amplifier for thirty seconds and then turn it back on.

Protection LED Illuminates When Amplifier Is Powered Up● Check for shorts on all speakers wires. (IE no speaker wires should be joined together and no speaker wires should be touching the cars chassis)● The amplifier is designed to shut down automatically when the units temperature goes above 80 degrees. If the amplifier feels very hot then this may be the reason for the amplifier not starting.● Remove the speaker wires and reset the amplifier. If the protection LED still comes on then the amplifier is faulty. This damage may have been caused by either failure to follow these setup guidelines or abuse.

Amplifier Gets Very Hot● Check the minimum speaker impedance for the amplifier is correct. ● Check for shorts on all speakers wires. (IE no speaker wires should be joined together and no speaker wires should be touching the cars chassis)● Check that there is good airflow around the amplifier. In some applications an external fan may be required.

Blown Fuse(s) ● Check both positive supply and ground for shorts.● Check that the positive wire is connected to the positive terminal on the amplifier.● Check that the negative wire is connected to the ground terminal on the amplifier. ● Ensure that the correct rated fuse is fitted

Distorted Sound● Check the gain control is not set at too high a level. If the speakers sound distorted turn the down the gain until the sound is clear. ● Check that all crossover frequencies are correct. See setup section for more details. ● Check for shorts on all speaker wires. ● Check all speakers are wired correctly. With the correct polarity being observed on each connection.

Set Up Section

To correctly set the gain control of the amplifier to match that of the source (headunit) use the following setup routine:

Turn the gain control to minimum on the amplifier.Ensure the bass boost is set to 0 dB.On the headunit set all crossovers to flat and both bass and treble to zero.Turn up the source (headunit) to approx 3/4 volume.Very slowly turn up the gain on the amplifier until distortion can be heard in any of the speakers or until the volume reaches an uncomfortable listening level when this is reached turn down the gain control slightly.

The gain control is now set.

The setting of the crossover will depend on what kind of speaker you are installing.

For a subwoofer it is recommended that the crossover is set to Low Pass and the frequency is set to match that of the speakers specifications.

For a pair of full range speakers it is recommend that the crossover is set to Flat. The two frequency controls will then have no effect on the amplifiers output and the speaker will receive a full range signal. However, using the high pass crossovers will allow more control of your speakers. By removing the bass (low frequencies) the speakers can perform at higher volumes with less distortion.

Note: The smaller the speaker, the less bass it can handle. Adjust the crossover to get the most and best sound from your speakers. The easiest was to do this is by limiting the amount of bass you feed them

For a pair of speakers with a passive crossover it is recommended that the crossover is set to High Pass and the frequency is set to match that of the speakers specifications.

Note:

By using the crossovers correctly you will not only lengthen the life of your speakers but you will also get better performance from them. To optimise your setup seek the advice of a professional installation engineer or visit your local EDGE audio dealer.
