Reference Lives!Can you believe that it has been over a decade since the legendary Soundstream Reference amps graced the caraudio industry?! Maybe you bought this amplifier because the best amplifier you ever had was a Reference from back inthe day. Maybe you bought it for its legendary performance. Regardless of the reason, we know you’ll love your new SSRef & will appreciate its unparalleled quality.When we first decided to reintroduce the coveted amplifiers, we just wanted something as fine

FeaturesIn the 80s, it became popular to use acronyms for amplifier features and technologies. In some cases, these acronymswere nothing more than fancy words put together cleverly to form an acronym not worth its weight in poop! Sales peoplememorized the silly acronyms but rarely knew what the feature encompassed. The features below are straight forwardfacts about the amplifiers that make them yield audio nirvana.General:•Full Signal Path Low Noise/Distortion Circuitry Topology•Optimal Comp

InstallationBefore installing any audio equipment, it is good practice to disconnect the ground terminal on the battery to avoid damage to the vehicle or audio equipment. Failure to do this means you’re a few brews short of a 6-pack and you probablyalready acquired the nickname of “Sparky” or “Smokey”. Not cool! Do NOT hook the ground cable back up to the battery until the rest of the wiring is complete.Factory ground wire mayneed to be upgraded, especially if it is smaller than thepow

Control DefinitionsAlrighty, here comes the fun stuff. We’re going to break this down to it simplest form so that there is no way youcan possibly do any damage in the installation process to your audio system. We’re going to explain in detail how everysingle knob and switch work rather than turn you loose on a sophisticated amplifier and have problems. READ EVERYTHING! Trust us, it’ll be worth it… Before you do anything, undo the ground cable from the battery.1Power Terminal BlockGND –

3Crossovers (continued)HAWKINS – This is a patented circuit developed by Soundstream many years ago. Hawkins has 2 controls but 3functions. One of the controls is the boost and it is from 0-10dB. The second control is the frequency. Whatever frequency you select will be the frequency that is controlled by the adjustable boost. The third function is atracking subsonic filter. Basically, at the frequency point you choose to boost, all lower frequencies will beblocked by the tracking subsonic fil

8Balanced Signal Inputs – Using our BLT Balanced Line Transmitters, you can achieve balanced, noise-free signaltransfer. This is a MUST and no-brainer for any audiophile, sound quality competitor, or anybody serious abouttheir music.9CH1&2 Signal Mode – There are two options here for the signal processing. You can either choose CH1&2 HP/FRfor High Pass or Full Range operations, or you can choose COPY CH3&4 making channels 1&2 receive thesame processing as channels 3&4. This is handy if you w
