Line Level And Speaker Level Inputs

There are two different ways you can get a signal into the CE404 - low and high level input. A low level input is measured in voltages. It comes in the form of RCA outputs from the back of your receiver and goes to the RCA inputs on your amplifier. A high level input is measure in wattage. It comes in the form one positive and one negative wire from the back of your receiver, and goes to the input terminal of your amplifier in the same wire form. Low-level (RCA) input wiring is preferred for best audio performance. Always use a high-quality RCA cable for best audio performance. Note: do not connect both the high level and low level inputs from your receiver to your amplifier at the same time.

Variable Gain Control

Properly setting the gain on your amplifier is key to getting great sound in your car. The gain control is not for adjusting volume, it simply adjusts the amount of signal that is coming from your receiver and going to your amplifier. If you set it too high, you are introducing distortion into the sound. But if you set it too low, then you are choking back on what the amplifier is there to do in the first place. A technique that works on most amplifiers involves first turning the amplifier’s gain all the way down. Then, go up front and put on some music. Now crank the stereo's volume until you hear distortion, then back it off until the distortion goes away. Go to your amplifier and turn the gain up until the distortion comes back. Last, back off until the distortion goes away.

Power LED

This simply shows you if the amplifier is on or off.

I installed this amplifier on my 1999 Hyundai Elantra. The installation was relatively easy. It fits perfectly on the back seat inside the trunk. So far so good. The power output is not bad at all at 50 watts of continuous power. For the money, do not expect this to be top of the line, but the audio is loud and clear with no distortion. This Boss amplifier gets the job done. I hope it lasts a long time. For the last month, it has worked with no issues at all.

I am going to try and hook this up to a self contained kind of cheap speaker/bass box. This amp won't barely run my single 12' Rocker Frostgate Sub.

I have had it for just over a month or so and the front channel's have already burned out and it is only connected to four 100watt max speakers so I will NOT be buying anything else from Boss Audio
