INTRODUCTION
Congratulation on your purchase of a new Impact
High Current amplifier.
We, at Impact, are aware of the fact that your
choice of an HC series amp has been deeply
thought out and that your expectations are high;
be sure that this product will fulfill them all.
This HC amp is a sum of technology and good
sense that join sound reproduction quality with
the extraordinary capability to drive 1 Ohm
stereo as well as 2 Ohm mono loads.
This amp’s performances are unequalled and can
match any installation needs.
IMPORTANT
Impact HC amplifiers are advanced units, provided with a sophisticated control system that
guarantees superior performances.
HC amplifiers will give you a life of uncompromised musical service under the strict condition
of a perfect installation; this requires car audio
installation knowledge and technique as well as
proper installation tools and equipment.
For this reason, we highly recommend you to apply to professional Impact Authorized Installers to
be sure of the absolute guarantee in terms of best
performances and safe installation.
If you decide to install your HC amplifier by
yourself, we recommend you to read this owner’s
manual very carefully and to follow strictly all instructions inside.

WARNING
Impact HC amplifiers can reproduce high sound
pressure levels that can cause permanent damages to your hearing system by long exposures.
The human hearing system is so deceiving as it
gets used to high sound pressure levels very soon;
as a consequence, a high sound level, which is
perceived as «ordinary», can be really dangerous.
We want you to take care of your ears so, in order
to avoid any inconvenience, state a safe sound
level.
State it before your hearing get used to extreme
loud volumes, just acting as follows:
1. Start listening at the lowest volume
2. Increase slowly your volume level by steps till
the sound is clear and pleasant without distortion.
3. Once you have stated the comfort volume level, take due notice of it and do not overcome
it.

INSTALLATION
Please read Installation Precaution before
installing your Impact HC amplifier, and then
refer to the diagrams provided to connect
power, speaker and audio input connections
according to your own system design.
Installation Precaution
• For safety, disconnect the battery during
installation. Confirm that your head-unit
or other equipment is turned off while
connecting the input jacks and speaker
terminals.
• Select a location inside your vehicle which
has adequate ventilation and protected from
dust and moisture
• Before drill or cut any holes, investigate your
car’s layout very carefully. Take care when
you work near gas tank, hydraulic and fuel
lines, electrical wiring.
• Do not operate the amplifier when unmounted. Fix all audio system components
securely within your car to prevent shorts
and damage especially in case of an
accident.
• Do not mount this amplifier so that the wire
connections are unprotected or likely to be
damaged by nearby objects.
• If you need to replace a fuse, only replace it
with a fuse of exactly same type and rating.
• Use proper sized wires to prevent electrical
fire, system damages and to obtain peak
performance.
Amplifier Installation
• Bolt the amplifier to the mounting surface.
Do not mount the amplifier upside down, as
it will restrict airflow over the heat sink.
• Using a 2 AWG, or larger, wire, run a ground
wire from the GND terminal of the amplifier
to the nearest chassis ground. Make sure
that the connection to the chassis is rust free
and cleared of all paint.
• Run a wire (same gauge of ground wire)
from the positive terminal of the battery to
the + 12 V terminal of the amplifier. Install
an in-line fuse holder at about 45 cm. (18”)
from the positive (+) terminal of the battery.
• If multiple amplifiers are to be run, and
a distribution block is used, then run the
largest gauge wire from the battery (+)
to the location in the vehicle where the
distribution block is located. Install a fuse
holder (or a circuit breaker) at about 45 cm.
(18”) from the positive (+) terminal of the
battery. This fuse/circuit breaker must be
able to handle the total current of amplifiers
being used. Now, individually fuse each
amplifier after the distribution block at the
amplifier location.
• Using a 12 AWG wire, run the Remote wire
from the REM terminal of the amplifier to
the remote output of head-unit.
• Connect the RCA input terminals of the
amplifier to the signal source using top
quality interconnect.
Set amplifiers controls as described in the
system you choose and according to the
wiring diagrams that follow in this manual.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Amplifier will not power up
• Check fuse
• Check all power connections (+ 12 V, Ground
and Remote)
• Check for at least 3 V on remote wire
Amplifier powers up, but then go into
Protection mode
All HC amplifiers are equipped with a diagnostic
device that turns the amp off immediately in case
of
shorted speaker wire (or shorted speaker) or
faulty amplifier.
To evaluate, disconnect all speaker wires and
re-power the amplifier: if it doesn’t go into
protection mode the problem is in the speaker
or in the speaker wire. If the amplifier goes into
protection mode with speaker leads disconnected,
the amplifier is faulty.
The amplifier can be restarted by turning the
remote power OFF and ON again.
Overheating
HC amplifiers feature a built-in thermal control
device that turns them off in case of extreme
temperature conditions. If this case occurs, allow
the amplifier to cool down before attempting to
restart it.
Thermal overload conditions are caused by a
lack of reasonable airflow over the heat sink or
by driving speaker of lower impedance than
recommended.
14
No sound
• Check radio volume and fader control
• Check speaker wires for loose or disconnect
• Check RCA input cable for defective, loose or
disconnect
• Check speaker wires for loose or disconnect
Weak output
• Check head unit volume and fader control
• Check amplifier level control setting
• Check that the correct crossover type has
been selected for the speaker being used
• Check RCA cables
• Check the head unit with another amplifier in
good working condition.
Only one channel works
• Check the balance control on the head-unit
• Confirm that all terminal strip connections are
secure and tight
• Reverse the input RCA plugs at the amplifier.
If the channel which is silent switches to the
other side the problem is either in the headunit or in the RCA interconnect
Hiss noise
• Check Input Level control of the amplifier
• Check head unit and disconnect input RCA
cable. If the hiss disappears RCA cable or
head-unit are faulty
Alternator whine in speakers
• Confirm that the amplifier and any other
signal sources are properly grounded.
• Remove RCA input from amplifier. If the whine
disappear, check input cable and head-unit
