Seven-Channel Power Amplifier

Congratulations! As the owner of an Outlaw Model 7100 Seven-Channel Power
Amplifier, you are in possession of a unique product. Designed and manufac-
tured in the United States, it has been carefully designed to deliver the best

and hope that your new amplifier brings many years of enjoyable listening to
your music or home theater system.
In order to receive the maximum enjoyment from your new amplifier, please
take a few minutes to read this manual. This important information will help
you make certain that the amplifier is properly configured for operation with
the rest of the equipment in your system. This brief investment of time will
provide major dividends by making certain that your amplifier is properly
installed and optimized for the specifics of your installation.
If you have any questions about this product, its installation or operation, please
contact us via e-mail at [email protected] or via telephone

The Outlaw 7100 is a state of the art, high performance, audio power amplifier.
It is built utilizing totally complementary circuitry from input to output. The
high current power supply is driven by a custom-designed 1.2 KVA torrodial
transformer with two separate windings for each of the seven channels. Each
channel has 4 discrete output devices, 20,000 uF total filter capacitance and is
protected by an advanced Opto-coupled protection circuit. Heat management
is provided by custom-designed heatsinks on each amplifier module, enabling
the amplifier to function at full power without the need for noisy fans.


The carton and packing materials used in shipping your new amplifier were
specially designed to cushion it from the shocks and vibration of shipping. We
strongly suggest that you save the carton and packing materials to use if you
move, or if the unit ever needs to be shipped back to us for any reason.
To minimize the size of the carton in storage, you may wish to flatten it by
carefully opening the top and bottom flaps and folding the carton flat. Other
cardboard inserts may be stored in the same manner. Packing materials that
cannot be collapsed should be saved along with the carton in a plastic bag.
Your new amplifier has been engineered using heavy duty materials for high
reliability and weighs 51 pounds. This substantial weight requires that you
pay special attention to unpacking and installation of the unit. You may wish
to have someone help you remove the unit from its carton and place it in the
proper location.
