The D’Amore Engineering / SMD Distortion Detector DD-1 is a powerful tool that every audio installer should have. With this tool, you can set the gain of an audio amplifier to match the output level of the source unit with extreme accuracy and speed. Not only that, but it can also be used to detect any distortion in the audio signal caused by poorly designed or malfunctioning audio equipment.
When you purchase the Distortion Detector DD-1, you will receive everything you need to get started. This includes the detector itself, a protective silicon rubber boot, a calibrated test tone CD, a harness, and of course, this comprehensive manual. We even include a sense of pride of ownership in every package.
The design of the DD-1 is something to be admired. We have chosen a 9V battery as the power source for a reason. It is readily available, and by isolating the DD-1 from the vehicle’s electrical system for power, it guarantees that it will only measure the audio signal and not be affected by any noise from the charging system.
Furthermore, we have implemented an RCA input connector for ease of use. If you prefer, you can directly measure the output of a headunit without any hassle. And in the event that the harness becomes damaged, it is easily replaceable or repairable in the field.
We take pride in our specifications, and we want to be transparent with our customers. The DD-1’s circuitry is 100% analog, and it is capable of detecting distortion trigger levels of over 1.0% harmonic distortion. Its operating range of input signal is an impressive 1.2Vrms to 125Vrms, or 15,000 Watts at 1 ohm. The signal present LED trigger voltage is 750mVrms, and the low battery LED trigger battery voltage is less than 5.6Vdc. Lastly, the auto-shut off timer will turn off the device 8-10 minutes after the ON button is pressed to save battery life.
In conclusion, the SMD Distortion Detector DD-1 is a high-quality and indispensable tool for audio installers. Its accuracy, speed, and ability to detect distortion make it a must-have for anyone in the industry. Get yours today and experience the difference it can make in your audio installations.
