Tuning your amp(s) is crucial to proper output and a long healthy life from your amplifier. By following the tuning steps below, your amp will produce maximum CLEAN power, provide the proper frequencies to your speakers / subwoofer(s) and provide many years of great audio!
Before starting the tuning process, you must complete the following steps:
- Power Wire (Proper size / Gauge) is connected from battery to TXD10005. ALL Fuses/Connections are installed and tightened per installation instructions.
- Ground Wire(s) (Proper Size / Gauge) is connected and tightened correctly.
- Plug and Play wiring harness is installed per installation instructions – for your model Toyota.
- Ensure that your OUTPUT plugs are NOT connected as shown in the installation diagram.
At this point your TXD10005 is powering on and you are ready to proceed to the tuning process.
Step 1: Obtain the tuning (test) tones for your TXD10005
