Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Inputs and Outputs Notes
Heatsink: The Dual XIA2460 amplifier features a die-cast aluminum heatsink
for effective heat dissipation.
Illuminite Circuit: The
amplifier has a dedicated low current DC output designed to illuminate the
lighting elements found in Dual XIN-series speakers. A 4-wire harness is
included specifically for this purpose. The circuit is protected by a separate
2-amp fuse. Note: This DC output should not be used to connect to speaker
terminals or other items.
Circuits: This amp has three types of
protection circuits: reverse polarity, speaker short circuit, and thermal protection. The
LED on the left side of the amplifier will glow red to indicate that the amplifier
has gone into protection. Under normal conditions, the LED glows green to
indicate the amplifier is receiving power.
Built-In Crossover: This
amplifier includes a built-in 40-400 Hz, continuously variable crossover. A
3-way switch allows you to configure the crossover for low-pass, high-pass, or
full range operation.
Bass Boost: The amp is equipped
with an adjustable 0dB to +12dB bass boost at 45 Hz.
Operation: With an optional passive crossover, such as the PAC TM100 (item
#127TM100), you can operate a pair of stereo speakers and a subwoofer from 2
channels. This configuration is also known as Tri-mode or Tri-way operation.
and Outputs Notes
Set Screw Terminals: The power,
ground, remote turn-on, and speaker output connections feature set-screw
terminals that can accept up to 8-gauge bare wire. A 3mm Allen wrench is
supplied to tighten/loosen the set screws.
