Marine Amplifier: The Wet Sounds Hydro-Tech series amplifiers,
with conformal coated PCBs, are specifically designed for marine applications.
However, the amps are not waterproof, and should not be mounted where they are
likely to get wet.
6-Channel Amp: The HT-6 is a 6-channel amplifier, basically
three 2-channel amps in one chassis. The inputs, outputs, and controls are labeled
CH1/CH2, CH3/CH4, and CH5/CH6.
Mounting Feet: Using the included mounting feet adds
approximately 1/2" to the height of the amp, but allows you to hide
the wiring under the chassis.
Logo: The Wet Sounds logo mounts over the status LED, on the
top of the amp. It can be mounted vertically or horizontally.
End Covers: There are removable covers on both ends of the
amp to help protect the controls and connections. The covers can be painted.
Note: A 3mm Allen wrench (not included)
is needed to remove the covers. They must be removed during
Control Panel Cover: All the controls are protected by a
rubber cover to help keep them dry.
Input: When only using one pair of the RCA inputs, set the
Input switch to 2CH. When using four or six RCA inputs, set the Input switch to
Input CH5/6: Set to On when using all six RCA inputs. When
set to Off, the CH5/CH6 signal is identical to the CH1/CH2 input.
Gain: Each pair of channels has independent gain controls,
continuously variable rotary controls; 200 mV to 5 V.
Crossover: Each pair of channels has independent crossover
controls. Each 12 dB/octave crossover can be set to low pass, high pass, or full
(crossover is bypassed and the amp output is full range). The crossover points
are adjustable from 50 Hz to 250 Hz.
Bass Boost: Each pair of channels has independent bass boost
controls; all centered at 45 Hz, they are continuously variable from 0 dB (flat)
to +12 dB.
Power Terminal Block: The amplifier has a power/ground terminal
block that detaches from the amplifier, making it easier to connect the power and
ground wires. Once the connections are made, the terminal block plugs into the
amplifier. The power/ground block has set screw terminals and will accept 4 gauge
Speaker Terminal Blocks: The speaker terminal blocks also
detach from the amplifier. One speaker block has set screw terminals for two
speakers and the remote turn-on lead, the other two have set screw terminals for two
speakers each. All the terminals will accept 12-16 gauge wire.
Preamp Inputs: The amplifier has three pair of RCA jack inputs.
Note: The preamp inputs are extended 5"
from the amp on pigtail wires.
Fuses: The amplifier is protected by two 30-amp ATO blade-type
