Inputs and Outputs
CEA 2006 Compliant: The
ZX250.2's power ratings are measured according to the strict standards dictated
by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). These standards allow you to
accurately compare the rated power output of all CEA 2006-compliant amplifiers,
even if they come from different brands. Manufacturers who adhere to the
standards can display the CEA 2006 logo on their products and packaging.
Kicker "Living Loud" Certified
Power Certificate: The amplifier comes with a certificate that indicates the
total maximum wattage of the particular amplifier, along with the model number,
serial number, tested date, and whether the amplifier passed the total harmonic
distortion, signal-to-noise ratio, and protection circuit tests.
Operation: The ZX amplifier is
capable of operating in two channel stereo, bridged/mono, and stereo plus mono
- Two Channel Stereo:
operates in 2-channel mode into a minimum impedance of 2 ohms per channel
- Bridged (Mono): operates
in a 1-channel mode into a minimum impedance of 4 ohms
- SAMS (Stereo and Mono
Operation Simultaneously): operates in tri-way mode into a minimum
impedance of 4 ohms mono and 2 ohm per channel in stereo simultaneously with
the use of optional passive crossovers
Speaker-level Input: The
high-level input connection is included to allow use with sources that do not
have RCA preamp level outputs. Only one type of input signal (speaker-level or
line-level) should be used with this amplifier.
Gain Control: The gain control
matches the output of the source unit to the input level of the amplifier.
Crossover Switch: The crossover
switch allows you to select the internal crossover to be used for either
highpass or lowpass use. It can also be turned "off" for full-range use.
Variable Filter: The internal
filter can be set for low-pass, high-pass, or full-range operation. The filter
can be adjusted from 50 to 200 Hz, and has a slope of 12 dB per octave.
KickEQ Bass Boost: The KickEQ
bass boost circuit provides up to 18 dB signal boost at 40 Hz.
RCA Output: The amplifier
features a low-level RCA output to pass the audio signal to another amplifier in
your system instead of having to run another set of RCAs back to your head-unit.
Either input method (hi-level or low-level) will provide a low-level output
signal at the RCA output terminal.
SORT (Short circuit, Over-voltage,
Reverse polarity, Thermal)
Protection Circuitry: The SORT protection circuitry guards against accidents
and undesired operation. The Power LED on the left side of the amp glows green
and the power indicator on top of the amp glows red when the amplifier is
connected correctly and SORT has not been engaged. If the red Protection LED
illuminates, SORT has been engaged and the amplifier is in protect mode until
the problem is resolved.
Mounting: Choose a location
that allows at least 4" of open ventilation for the amplifier. Four mounting
screws are supplied to hold the amplifier securely in place. Make sure to leave
room to be to access the controls on the amplifier. An allen-wrench is supplied
to secure you power cables and speaker wire to the amplifier's set-screw
