Planning ahead:

Choosing your location according to these guidelines will help your installation go smoothly:
* The amp should be at least three feet from the receiver to avoid noise radiated from the vehicle's electrical system. The amp can also interfere with the receiver's AM/FM reception.
* An amp produces some heat during operation, which its heatsink absorbs and radiates, so it needs a few inches of air space to stay as cool as possible. When mounting an amp on a side wall, make sure the fins on the heatsink are vertical. Never mount an amp upside down, as dissipated heat will radiate back into the amp.
* There must be enough room on either side to make the wiring connections and adjust the controls (gain, crossover, bass boost, etc.).
