3 - 12 Volts of DC Power (2 amp minimum)

You will need to power the amplifier with 12 VDC power. Most all cars in the US  run on 12 volts. If you plan to use this amplifier for a indoor or fixed application, you will need a 12 VDC regulated power supply with a minimum of 2 Amps. These power supplies are not available through us but may be available at the local electronics or radio store. Most of them look very similar to the one pictured just below. Once again, be sure the supply is 2 amps minimum. See also our illustrations here.

We include a short cable (about 3 feet) that has a TNC male on one end and a female TNC on the other. Also included are two adapters pictured just below. If you need different connectors, please let us know and we can arrange the correct adapters. When you are also purchasing an antenna , please specify the connector as FME or TNC. Lastly, you will need a way to hook this setup to your particular phone via a car kit or adapter . please use the links to find the correct one for your phone.
