Information for Ascendant Audio TEAM, SMDv2, Fi Car Audio SP4 and TEAM.

It is very important that you do NOT twist the FOAD tinsel leads when tightening the ring terminal on the connector of your speaker wires coming from your amplifier. They must remain straight in order to function properly or they will fatigue and break.

If they are twisted they will NOT be covered under warranty as it is considered to be improper installation.

foad

In order to tighten the terminals properly please use a pair of 7/16″ spanners to tighten the locking nut and triple check to make sure that the tinsel lead is still straight prior to installing the speakers into your enclosure.

Make sure there zero bass boost on the amplifier and the subsonic filter is set 2-3Hz below the port tuning frequency of the enclosure. This will make sure that the speaker does not move part the mechanical limitations of the moving assembly. If you have questions please e-mail us through the contact section or sales@ficaraudio.com for clarification.

Time Scale

Blade ICE strives to diagnose and repair products as quickly as possible. Normal turn around time for repairs is 5-7 business days.

WARNING!

Fi Car Audio & Ascendant Audio products are capable of producing sound levels that can permanently damage your hearing! Turning up a system to a level that has audible distortion is more damaging to your ears than listening to an undistorted system at the same volume level. The threshold of pain is always an indicator that the sound level is too loud and may permanently damage your hearing. Please use common sense when controlling volume!
