Care and Maintenance


When the unit becomes dirty, wipe it with a clean, soft, dry cloth. If necessary,
first wipe the surface with a soft cloth slightly dampened with mild soapy water,
then with a fresh cloth dampened with clean water. Wipe dry immediately
with a dry cloth. NEVER use benzene, thinner, alcohol or any other volatile
cleaning agent. Do not use abrasive cleaners, as they may damage the finish
of the metal parts. Avoid spraying insecticide, waxes, polishing agents, or any
aerosol product near the unit.


Your Outlaw M-Block Amplifier is designed for trouble free operation. If you
follow the instructions in this manual you should enjoy many years of high
quality listening enjoyment. However, as with any sophisticated electronic de-
vice, there may be occasional problems upon initial installation, or during the
life of the unit. The items on this list are a brief guide to the minor problems
that you may be able to correct yourself. If these solutions do not rectify a
problem, or if the problem persists, contact us for assistance.

Protection Circuitry

In the event that the amplifier senses a shorted speaker wire, DC voltage on an
input connection, or thermal overload that could potentially cause damage to
the unit or to your speakers, it will automatically shut down.
If this should happen, first check all speaker wire connections, both at the
speakers themselves and at the speaker terminals on the back of the Model 200

to make certain that none of the strands from the “positive” terminal touch
those from the “negative” terminal. Even a few stray wire strands can cause
the unit to go into the protection mode.
After checking all speaker connections, turn the unit back on. If it continues
to turn off, check your speakers to verify that they are operating properly. If all
other potential sources of trouble check out properly, contact Outlaw Audio for
further assistance and information.

Fuse Replacement

The fuse on the Model 200’s rear panel protects the unit’s power supply from
problems and is not part of the audio circuit. If you suspect that a malfunction
of the unit is caused by a blown fuse, be certain to replace it with an identical
type. Should the fuse continue to blow, discontinue use of the Model 200 and
disconnect it from both AC Power and all source components. Contact Outlaw
Audio for service information.
