To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not remove the cover (or back). No

user serviceable parts inside. Refer to qualified personnel.


To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose this appliance to

rain or moisture.

The lightning flash with arrowhead, with in an equilateral triangle, is
intended to alert the user to the presence of uninsu lated “dangerous volt-
age” within the product’s enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude to
constitute a risk of electrical shock to persons.

The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert
the user to the presence of important operating maintenance (servicing)
instructions in the literature accompanying the appliance.


Verify The Line Voltage

Your new Low Frequency Module has been factory configured for 120 volt AC lines. Connect-
ing the LFM-1 EX or LFM-1 Plus to a line voltage other than that for which it is intended can
create a safety and fire hazard, and may damage the subwoofer. If you have any questions
about the voltage requirements for your specific model, or about the line voltage in your
area, contact Outlaw Audio before plugging the unit into a wall outlet.

Verify AC Circuit Capacity

The high power output of your Outlaw LFM may require heavy power draw under full load
conditions. To insure proper performance, and to avoid potential safety hazards, we recom-
mend that it be connected to a 20 Amp capacity circuit. Connecting multiple subwoofers
to the same circuit, or connecting it to a circuit used by other heavy power devices, such as
air conditioners, may cause circuit breakers to trip.

NOTE: It is always a good idea to avoid using any audio or video equipment
on the same AC circuit as equipment with motors, such as air conditioners or
refrigerators. This will lessen the possibility of power variation and electrical
start-up noise affecting your sound system.

Extension Cords and Power Strips

We do not recommend that extension cords be used with this product unless they are of
sufficient gauge to pass the necessary current during full load conditions. Most inexpensive
extension cords are not capable of such high-current loads.

Similarly, should you use a power strip, surge protector or any type of AC power line con-
ditioning equipment, make certain that it is also able to handle the high current loads
this product will produce.

Handle the AC Power Cord Gently

When disconnecting the power cord from an AC outlet, always pull the plug, never pull the
cord. If you do not intend to use the amplifier for any considerable length of time, disconnect
the plug from the AC outlet. If the power cord is replaced, make certain that it is of similar
gauge. As with all electrical devices, do not run power cords under rugs or carpets or place
heavy objects on them. Damaged power cords should be replaced immediately with cords
meeting factory specifications.


Cables that are run inside of walls should have the appropriate markings to indicate com-
plaince with, and listing by the UL , CSA or other standards required by the UL, CSA, NEC or
your local building. Questions about cables inside of walls should be referred to a qualified
customer installer, or a licensed electrician or low-voltage contractor.

Do Not Open The Cabinet

There are no user serviceable components inside this product. Opening the cabinet may
present a shock hazard, and any modification to the product will void your guarantee. If
water or any metal object, such as a paper clip, coin or a staple, accidentally falls inside
the unit, disconnect it from the AC power source immediately, and contact Outlaw Audio
for further instructions.

FCC Information for User

CAUTION: ANY changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for
compliance could void the user’s authority to operate the equipment.

NOTE: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B
digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide
reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation.

This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed
and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio
communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a
particular installation.

If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which
can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to
correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:

• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.

• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.

• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the

receiver is connected.


Before connecting a new component such as the LFM to your audio or home theater system
it is always good practice to make certain that all components are turned off, and preferably
unplugged from their AC power source. Many modern electronics products feature automatic
turn-on circuits that may be activated during an installation, causing the potential for
damage to electronic components and/or speakers. Such damage is not covered by product
warranties and Outlaw Audio specifically disclaims responsibility for any such damage.
