The Input Level selection is either Pre or Spk In so it can also be used with factory radios that don't have RCA outputs. The Auto Turn On feature is selectable, enabling the unit to turn on when it senses signal, eliminating the need to run a remote wire, or it can be turned on using a remote wire, the choice is yours.


High Quality Power and Speaker Connections

The JH5001 can accept up to a standard 4-gauge power and ground wire for optimal performance. The speaker terminals can accept up to 12-gauge speaker.

Both sets of connectors use set screw style fittings that ensure proper connection and continual signal transfer.
